I was stuck driving across country listening to this. The lead female character was so incredibly ungrateful and B-it-Ch-Y the entire time, up until the last 10 minutes of audio. THE WHOLE time she just complained about everyone being nice to her, she gets knocked up by a guy she doesn't even know and he gives her an apartment, job, and $ and she just pushes him away. He's such a nice guy that by the end you can't WAIT for him to give her the boot. Now that is NOT romance. horrible, that and the author must have an obsession wtih fatty food. Every chapter and one of the characters is eating something digusting.

This book is incredibly shallow. We never learn anything about Beth, the main character, other than the fact that she avoids love and relationships. Her parents "smother" her with love so she leaves home to be on her own. She gets short term jobs and saves the money so she can leave town when people start caring about her. In the entire book she never does a single good thing for another person, never acts selflessly, never shows any character. On the other hand, Kevin is adorable. He steps up and does everything for Beth. In spite of Kevin's extreme niceness, awesome handsomeness, and too numerous to mention positive qualities, he falls for Beth because she is not interested in him and/or is having his baby. The entire book is filled with Kevin being nice and understanding and Beth being aloof and angry. About half way through the book, she stops thinking about pushing Kevin away because he is smothering her (like her parents did) and decides to push him away because his love is probably not real (which she should like because of her other love-phobia problems). For the remainder of the book she is cruel to Kevin because she's afraid he might not really love her. In the last 5 minutes of the book, after I spent the last many hours begging Kevin to leave the virago, she decides to love him, thus clearing the way for a happy ending. By the way, Beth never does anything to redeem her character other than change her mind about accepting what Kevin has been trying to give her thoughout the book. After the honeymoon she's sure to be harping on him again. Unbelievably shallow writing.
