Didn’t Like the Hero
Emma wants to use her work friend Luke as a fake boyfriend for a family holiday in Hawaii so she doesn’t look like a loser to her relatives. I sometimes enjoy fake-boyfriend romances, but this one left me cold. Luke seemed okay at first. He and Emma seem to have a good working relationship. But when they got to Hawaii, and especially after certain events happened that, Luke kinda turned into a bit of a jerk, and he stayed that way too long for me to like him as a hero. I also didn’t like the way the book was written mostly in dialogue; there was not much in the way of thoughts or action around the dialogue. In that way, it reminded me of a movie script. In the end, I actually didn’t want them to get together; Emma deserved someone better.
