My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was provided with a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The story revolves around Sharn, who's decided that she can't rely on her sense of judgment on choosing guys anymore, thanks to a rough breakup, and a few even rougher dates, and Keefer, the silent, solemn and unassuming boy she had known back in high school. Keefer has a lot of woes and worries to support on his shoulders and finds solace in his baseball games. Keefer could have never ever imagined that the much sought-after Sharn from high school would even glance at him, leave alone date him. When fate throws Sharn and Keefer together, they decide to date and find that they can't douse that Cupid spark that sets their lives aflame. With both of them having to handle other struggles in life, their meeting happens at a not so opportune moment, but do they still manage to keep the spark alive is what the book takes us through.
This was a smooth, nice and easy casual romance read. I loved the way the narrative flowed - even the conversations and repartees between Sharn and Keef smouldered with the underlying sparks of attraction. Keef's characterisation was well etched, I felt - the inner conflicts and turmoils he is battling with, when he is unable to resist getting drawn to Sharn, and also is unable to forget his duties and responsibilities, are well depicted. The pace could have been a tad more brisk, I felt. But the story was enjoyable all the same.
I definitely recommend this to lovers of romance.
