Publisher: Amazon Digital Services, Inc.
Format: Kindle Edition
Series: N/A

Skylar has read all about Mr. Right being someone she finds in a mystic moment. Shared glances in a coffee shop or the gentleman that picks her up after she takes a spill at the roller rink.
Chris supports her efforts to keep trying to force her ‘right moment’ but he prays she’ll notice that he’s a great person, too, even if they’re not exactly star-crossed.
Real love, after all, sometimes hides in the most extraordinary of everyday places.

A short review for a short book~


The Commencement: This book was free on Amazon so I downloaded it and it is part of July’s Random Reads. I also included it in my Summer Lovin’ Read-a-thon Goals. So basically, I know nothing about this book. Therefore, I had no expectations.

The Cover: The cover is your typical romance book cover. It’s not really that special or anything – not ugly, but not great either. It’s just normal, I guess. It’s your typical cheesy couple cover.

The Composition: It was quite boring for me – 79 pages felt longer than 79 pages. The writing was very simple, maybe too simple. There were a lot of cliches that I could not really care for. It wasn’t really that bad. It just wasn’t interesting at all. I don’t think there’s anything new here. It’s normal – very normal.

The Characters:

Skylar has been in love with Chris for the longest time, but she knew that he was too busy for a relationship so she ignores her attraction. She is a 28-year-old receptionist living with her parents. She has been so desperate to get her life going on that she easily falls for the first guy that throws himself at her, who was the awful, too-good-to-be-true Grayson. She threw away her relationship with her friends for this guy she barely knew. She acted so stupid sometimes that I couldn’t care much for her.

For the main guy, we have Chris – a workaholic academic. He’s too busy for any romance because he has to finish his thesis. He’s not the type to just get any girl whenever.  He’s very smart and caring.

The Couple: They spent a lot of time pining for each other, but not doing anything about it until the near end. The resolution of their relationship was pretty sweet though, although maybe a little bit weird given the circumstances. It was really short though.

The Charm: The only thing I like about this book was Chris’s best friend, Steve. He was a really good and caring friend. He’s funny too. I wish the story was more about him and Anna instead.


The Conclusion: I could not really care much for this book.  It just didn’t work for me. I don’t think it’s worth $4.99
