novels such as Red Card and All the Frogs in Manhattan, Carrie Aarons writes
sexy, swoon-worthy, sarcastic characters who won’t get out of her head until
she puts them down on a page.
Carrie has wanted to be an author since the first time she opened a book, and
can’t imagine a better or more maddening profession.
A lover of good manicures, Riesling and the beach, she enjoys chasing her puppy
through the dog parks of New Jersey, or trying to make her husband binge watch
the latest Netflix craze.

I am really stuck on what I thought about this book. Did I love the characters? Her. Yes. Him. No. Did I love the writing? 100 times yes! Carrie always does a great job of telling her stories and getting me hooked from the beginning of the book. Her style of writing is effortless to read and flows so well.
Kara I loved! She was sassy, funny, and constantly making Deans life just a little more complicated. Which I enjoyed. There were times where I was frustrated with her as well, but she had a right to be a little wishy washy. I get it. Shes a very strong woman and wants nothing more than to keep her heart safe from the man that shattered it.
Dean. At first when I started the book I thought ok…. I can get on board with this. But then he just pissed me off and never really redeemed himself for me at the end. Granted he does know what he wants and he goes for it. Hes clever. Hes very charming. A lot of the time I wanted to scream at him and be like hey man…. you don’t do that crazy shit! But, I felt those emotions. So clearly Carrie got what she was looking for.
This was a good read. I felt all the feels and then some. Perfect for a rainy cold day on the couch and relax!
