• Which leads me to another reason why I liked this book. ..Despite being a virgin, Candane knew what she wanted from the very beginning - Brian. It was evident in the way she sheepishly made her way to the tattoo parlour in the beginning and asked for a tattoo by him. And it was evident in the way she told Brian that she wanted him on that first night together. I loved the fact that she made her feelings known. It made me love her even more!
This may come as a shocker to many, but Brian annoyed me a lot throughout this book. He believed he was unworthy to be loved by Candy, deeming himself a loser who didn’t deserve her virginity. For the first few pages it was okay, but then it started to impede the plot progression. And then the story got stuck. For a long time, I waited until Brian snapped out of his brooding phase and he does, but it took too long for me.
