“I think it is a bit… forgettable.”
~ Under the Covers

I discovered Ms. Higginson a year (or is it two?) ago and I’ve been wanting to go back and read this book for a while now.  While her newer books have been contemporary romance, this one was new adult.  Can you hear me groaning?  But I chose to read this as part of our Romance Roundabout Challenge and in part I’m glad that I did because I found the story cute and sweet.  But on the other side, I think it is a bit… forgettable.  There wasn’t any one thing that hit home with me here like her books usually do.

Ellie is taken for a ride by her college roommate who seems to have had a secret gambling addiction.  She’s now in rehab, but left Ellie in more than one trouble.  Her most pressing one?  Fin Hunter shows up on her doorstep claiming she owes him seven grand.  Obviously this was her roommate using her name on a contract with Fin, but he still makes her work for him while giving her some time to come up with the money owed.

The first thing I had an issue with was the setup because I reeeeally had to suspend belief.  Once I put that aside and just tried to focus on the couple then I found their interactions cute and the story passed by fast.

This was a fast read that felt young and maybe not so much my genre.  But even with all that I still managed to enjoy it ok.  Sadly this isn’t one of those reads by Ms. Higginson that will stick with me months (years) in the future.
