What do you do when the guy you’re in love with is seeing someone else?

That’s the dilemma facing Paige Taylor. All of her life she’s only ever had eyes for the gorgeous Alec Wright, but despite their undeniable chemistry, their timing has always been off. Fast approaching her thirtieth birthday, Paige despairs of ever finding love and a happy ever after. Her best friend Poppie tells her that she can either watch life pass her by, or grab it with both hands. She convinces Paige to throw herself back into the dating pool, or she could be waiting for Alec forever.

What Paige didn’t expect was the catalogue of dating disasters to follow. A neck brace, jelly fish, stitches, flashing and an encounter with a gorilla were some of the most memorable. Despite some downright hilarious, humiliating and cringe worthy dates, her biological clock is ticking and Paige is determined to keep trying until she finds the one.

Was Alec Wright always her Mr. Right, or is he still out there waiting to be found?
Join Paige in her quest to find the ultimate prize. Love.

Unfortunately, this book didn’t work for me. While I love the way the author builds her characters up and makes them fun, this book was missing something. I think it’s the fact that I was unable to relate to the heroine for starters. There simply wasn’t enough background for her and I had trouble connecting with her. Even more, there was so much time passed in between chapters and I didn’t feel like I was able to be a part of the journey. How after so many years and so many “chance” meetings did these two NOT see how much they loved each other? It came off as unrealistic and downright frustrating. Finally, there was way too much going on in such a short book. Had the author taken the time and made this a full length novel and built the characters up more then I would have liked it.

While this book didn’t personally work for me, I will tell you that I love the Dilbury Village series (also by the author). I certainly plan to continue the novels in that series as they release and am quite frankly really excited to dive back in.
