When it comes to relationships, Remy doesn't mess around. After all, she's learned all there is to know from her mother, who's currently working on husband number five. But there's something about Dexter that seems to defy all of Remy's rules. He certainly doesn't seem like Mr. Right. For some reason, however, Remy just can't seem to shake him. Could it be that Remy's starting to understand what those love songs are all about?
I was really excited when I started to read this book because I have really been loving Sarah Dessen books latley, so I guess I was going into this book with pretty high expectations but there was something about this book that made me not like it as much as the other Sarah Dessen books I've read so far.
The plot. I really tried to like the plot in this book but there was something about it that seemed to drag for quite a lot of the book. I found myself putting it down frequently and at times not even focusing on what I was reading and just skimming the lines on the page. I think it's safe to say that the plot of this book just fell flat for me and just didn't interest me.
The characters. Another thing that bothered me about this book was Remy's character. I found myself not being able to relate to her, I thought that her character was to closed off for most of the book, though she did seem to open up a lot more when she was with Dexter which I really Liked. A character that I really liked was Dexter. I thought it was great how he was the complete oppisite to Remy and really brought her out of her shell. I thought that he was really funny and charming and had me laughing the whole way through this book, he was definitely the stand-out character for me in this book.
Overall this book was just not for me. Even though this book was still written extremely well the plot just didn't seem to interest me. But if you're on the fence about if you should read this book I think you should give it a go. You never know, you just night love it.
