Review: I was provided with an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. This book begins with Amber moving into a new apartment, following a bad break-up with her ex-fiance, David. Amber and David were together for around eight years, the last two of which they were engaged. As far as Amber has been able to tell, David seemed to just decide that he didn't want to be married to her, while she was dizzyingly preparing for their dream wedding.
Meanwhile, Craig does come up with one of the cutest nicknames that I have heard of in a while. He calls Amber "Pingu", which is from a song called Penguin. There is a little bit of the insta-love/lust that goes on in this book, so be aware if that is something that drives you crazy. Craig has this player reputation, but he quickly wants to give Amber a chance and spend as much time with him as he can. There is the miscommunication and keeping things from one another that start to throw a wrench in the relationship. For Amber, it's David, as he suddenly keeps trying to come back into her life. I will admit that I am still a little bewildered as to why David ended up being as aggressive towards Amber as he was at this point. She talked about his being controlling before, but then, for the past seven months during their broken engagement and separation, she makes it sound like he was distant and absent. Suddenly, he is calling, coming by and even more!
