He comes up with a 5-step plan to place his brand on Kelli's heart.  The problem is, he can't even make it to the first step. Never fear, though.

Overall Review:  

Cute, quick, sweet read that all ages will enjoy.  Readers will love Kelli's no-nonsense strength, Bobby Gray's persistence, and the fun, romantic parry between these two characters that are destined to fall in love.   Unfortunately though, while a very good-natured and pleasant read, it left a lot to be desired in character and story development.  The author seems disconnected to the youthful characters she portrays, filling her story with old sayings, little known words, and character traits that would seem more fitting for middle-aged characters.  Overall, though, it's a cute read that would be enjoyed by all readers.

Content Analysis:  

There is only one mild profanity in this book.  


There were a few very mild instances of sexual content, but they were very mild--a kiss, a comment.  Nothing worrisome or inappropriate at all.  

There are no mature themes.  I would recommend this book to adult women, as I think they would enjoy it the most.  My age group recommendation of 18+ is only because of the storyline, and that it's about young adults and adults.

Mature Subject Matter:  


Alcohol / Drug Use:
