This novel is just so damn cute. Which, considering Sweet Tea and Sympathy was very, very adorable, isn’t surprising in the least. I kind of fell a little in love with Frankie in Sweet Tea and Sympathy, which made it all that much more exciting to read about her in her own romance. The fact that this has more hijinks and insanity just made it that much more fun to read.
I know that just having a parent with cancer can leave you with zone medical trauma. I can’t imagine what it would be like to have cancer at a young age and deal with the resulting trauma. I thought that Harper dealt incredibly well with this topic and issue. Frankie’s neuroses might seem a bit extreme, but they are completely understandable. The fact that this further feeds on her not-so-healthy relationship with her parents just made me that much happier. Particularly since all through this, Frankie is AWARE that her reactions and relationships aren’t all that healthy.
Eric was quite a yummy lead. I enjoyed how he is immediately described as someone who is not traditionally food looking. Don’t get me wrong, I love my man candy hot, but I enjoy it when they’re a little bit unconventional in their yumminess. The fact that he is also able to push Frankie and see through her bullshit just endeared him to me that much more.
I thought that the parallels drawn between Jarred and Frankie were quite well done. There are many spoilt and treasured children throughout the world, but not all are actually spoilt people. Even though Frankie and Jarred have both had the potential to pursue the same pathways, they’ve made completely different choices. A good reminder that our choices are what ultimately create us and are incredibly important.
