I have to confess I find that being a parent is hard work. I know not a news flash, but sometimes I have a hard time finding that balance between giving my children the information they need to know, and protecting them from what they don’t.
I recently read 9 Reasons to fall in Love by Daniel Banner and was a little exasperated by the lack of communication between the two main characters. Then I came, across this line “if he did that, she might never learn to trust herself.” I appreciated the forethought that Daniel Banner gave Dex in understanding not just what London wanted, but what she needed.
That being said I did have a harder time connecting to the characters. I find myself swooning more often over intellectual communication/chemistry, than physical. This book was heavy on the later and slim on the former. The character’s were given well established backgrounds and great motivators for their current actions, I just would’ve liked to have seen more moments like their scene on the swings.
“Painfully betrayed by his long-time girlfriend, Dex Blackwell, billionaire, heads to Mackinac Island where he is interviewed by London Marseilles for her MyHeartChannel travel page. London’s quick wit, gorgeous smile, and sense of humor make him question his decision to swear off women.
London Marseilles, like her mother and her mother’s mother, has a talent for finding the exact wrong guy. After dating a long stream of moochers and professional video game players, she accepts the Marseilles Curse and swears off men. Her 9 Reasons to Never Fall in Love, Ever episode on her channel, lays out the reasons why and receives constant views. When a seemingly perfect guy—handsome, funny, easygoing—walks off the ferry, she’s cautious with her heart, especially when Dex is vague about his employment.
A storm strands Dex on the island and somehow London ends up offering him and two other travelers refuge from the Great Lakes weather. Once again, a hot but unambitious guy has landed on her couch. It’s a good thing she has her 9 Reasons, or she might be tempted to prolong the invitation.
After Dex leaves, London can’t get him out of her mind and Dex does everything he can to convince her to date him—everything except open his bank account to prove he’s not the freeloader he appears to be. Can London find the faith in this man she’s fallen for, and faith in herself to take a leap at love or will she let her fear of the family curse chase away the perfect guy?”
