And that's probably one of the bigger problems with this story, which pulls me back and forth between really caring for this girl and hating her various mistakes. It would help if there was something interesting about the guy to like. At no point in the book did I get the sense that the two of them even liked each other. There's no heat at all between them. Allegedly the boy has been in this super serious relationship for the past two years and then, despite the fact that Lu and him have known each other for ever, suddenly he can't live without Lu and he's ready to dump the previous Love of His Life. Nope.
This was Estelle Laure's first novel and she's written plenty of good ones since. It's been nothing but up since this one!
