If you have read my blog for long, you know that I love me a good vampire/shifter/witch story. I don’t read a lot of love or chic lit. However, it is nice to take a break from fantasy and read something with real people. This book was like a restful vacation. I loved it. Who doesn’t love a good love story? Love is love whether the people have fangs or the ability to tan. Taylor has had a pretty rough time in the dating world. (Wait until you read about the date with the hotel guy!) The author created a non-shallow character who is able to look at her past from many angles and evaluate the options before just jumping in. I liked this. I get tired of the flaky female leads who don’t have much depth. Now my only problem is finding the time to read the rest of the series.
I blame the fairy tales. When you grow up watching every love story end in happily ever after, you come into adulthood with expectations.
I never thought I’d reach twenty-five without finding The One. Of course, I’d know immediately he was The One because angels would sing, a light would shine down from the heavens, and he would be absolutely perfect in every way.
Except that hasn’t happened in real life.
It doesn’t help that being a wedding planner means I’m surrounded by romance every day. Of course, I’m also surrounded by crazy bridezillas and their outlandish demands. If those chicks can find love, then what’s wrong with me?
It’s not like I haven’t been out on dates or tried to find Mr. Right. But have you seen what’s out there?
So go ahead. Read my diary. You might laugh. You might cry. You might question my sanity more than once. Lord knows, I’ve done all that and then some. But if there’s anything I’ve learned from the fairy tales and my crazy life, a lot happens between Once Upon A Time and Happily Ever After.
