    2.5 starsI didn t like this story much I didn t hate it, but I definitely didn t enjoy it the thing is, I have to agree with some of the things that Susan mentioned in her review she wrote the review few hours before I posted this one, funny how we thought alike when I didn t even know she was reading this too Nick s inner monologue was NOT amusing In fact, when he got to the point where he slammed on women who didn t work, on housewives, I scrunched my nose in disgust, and put this sto 2.5 starsI didn t like this story much I didn t hate it, but I definitely didn t enjoy it the thing is, I have to agree with some of the things that Susan mentioned in her review she wrote the review few hours before I posted this one, funny how we thought alike when I didn t even know she was reading this too Nick s inner monologue was NOT amusing In fact, when he got ...

    Bittersweet Nick s bitter and Kit s sweet.A study in extremes, these two characters charge in and clash immediately The caustic tongue Nick hides behind is vicious and his internal dialogue speaks of one who s self hatred is oppressive While it is so easy to be repelled by Nick and honestly, the author does a great job of repelling the reader as much as Nick would repel others from interacting with him, but if one perseveres then the p...

    2.5 This is one of those stories that frustrates me no end, because it leaves me liking some parts quite a bit and happy, but still grumpy and frustrated about other parts.Nick is a an asshat, no doubt about it He s arrogant, conceited, and honestly, yes I felt for him , having such stupid, bigoted parents, but he s 30 now, successful and he was kicked out with a trust fund so personally I felt he didn t quite need all the drama and bitterness that Nick kept spewing I know he apologized later 2.5 This is one of those stories that frustrates me no end, because it leaves me liking some parts quite a bit and happy, but still grumpy and frustrated about other parts.Nick is a an asshat, no doubt about it He s arrogant, conceited, and honestly, yes I felt for him , having such stupid, bigoted parents, but he s 30 now, successful and he was kicked out with a trust fund so personally I felt he didn t quite need all the drama and bitterness that Nick kept spewing I know he apologized later but I have a hard time getting over...

    I really enjoyed this christmas miracle story All the pieces felt true, although some of it is coincidental But that s what miracles need some luck, some fate and lots of happy.Which is what Kit embodies optimism, laughter and the knowledge of being loved and accepted All the qualities that Nick didn t have growing up.The dark elements are hinted at, but there s not enough to bring this story down into grumble monkey territory I like the HFN conclusion the anticipation of the future, t I really enjoyed this christmas miracle story All the pieces felt true, although some of it is coincidental But that s what miracles need some luck, some fate and lots of happy.Which is what Kit embodies optim...
