I thought I'd like this book more than I did. It kept my interest enough that I kept reading but I found it a bit predictable and slightly unrealistic at times. I didn't appreciate the vocabulary lessons in the form of crossword clues that appeared throughout and I thought Dorrie's language was a bit "off." What 30-something woman in today's world tells a guy she "digs" him? I was also surprised at the depiction of current issues on race relations. I understand discrimination still exists, I understand DWB happens but I was a bit in disbelief at how Dorrie and Isabelle were treated in the restaurant and hotel. Maybe it's due to me living my life in an urban and suburban area in the north as a white woman and not a small town in the south as a black woman. Maybe my eyes were opened to the truth? Despite all this I give the book 3 stars because it does have me thinking a lot even after I've finished.
