Taryn Mitchell isn't looking for love, she likes to keep her distance from men who threaten to break her heart, so when A -list movie star, Ryan Christensen comes into town and visits her bar in Seaport, Rhode Island, Taryn is determined not to be bowled over by Ryan’s good looks and charm. Inevitably, Tina finds herself falling for Ryan and yet their relationship is never going to be uncomplicated, and as Ryan is relentlessly pursued by paparazzi, Taryn isn't sure whether she can live with this unyielding aspect of Ryan’s life.
What then follows is a fairy predictable, chick lit romance which seemed to have all the elements of a good story but seemed lacking in proportion, the book was much too long and in parts a little bit boring. The characters lacked any sort of depth and by two thirds into the book, I had given up on wanting to know what happened next to either of them.
I am sure that some people will love it – it just wasn't for me.
