Inhaltsangabe

Darlene Montgomery has been to hell and back...more than once. After a stint in jail for drug possession, she is finally clean and ready to start over. Yet another failed relationship is just the motivation she needs to move from New York to San Francisco with the hopes of resurrecting her dance career and discovering that she is more than the sum of her rap sheet. As Darlene struggles in her new city, the last thing she wants is to become entangled with her handsome - but cranky - neighbor and his adorable little girl....

Sawyer Haas is weeks away from finishing law school, but exhaustion, dwindling finances, and the pressure to provide for himself and his daughter, Olivia, are wearing him down. A federal clerkship - a job he desperately needs - awaits him after graduation, but only if he passes the bar exam. Sawyer doesn't have the time or patience for the capricious - if beautiful - dancer who moves into the apartment above his. But Darlene's easy laugh and cheerful spirit seep into the cracks of his hardened heart, and slowly break down the walls he's resurrected to keep from being betrayed ever again.

When the parents of Olivia's absentee mother come to fight for custody, Sawyer could lose everything. To have any chance at happiness, he must trust Darlene, the woman who has somehow found her way past his brittle barbs, and Darlene must decide how much of her own bruised heart she is willing to give to Sawyer and Olivia, especially when the ghosts of her troubled past refuse to stay buried.

Contains mature themes.

boring Schmalz Fest

First off, both narrators perform admirably, given what they have to work with.

I really gave this a try, even though it began annoying me in the first third of the story. I really did try.

But this unbearable schmalz fest does not get a minute more of my attention.

The premise is somewhat promising. Yet what looked like sweet lovestory (and yes, I am making adjustments for the genre) pretty soon turns into boring, repetetive babble. The female protagonist got on my nerves pretty soon. She has served a jail sentence for drug possession, overdosed on heroin but hey, all in the past. Why bother the guy who lets you babysit his small child with such details? And the male protagonist - while barely intriguing in the first thrird of the story - quickly turns into a horny sap.

Don't get me wrong, it's not just the flat writing or the predictable story. It's that both protagonists consistently make the wrong choices after a certain point ... and I find myself wishing they would just get the hell on with it. I can't finish the book because if the build-up to sex is anything to go buy, performing the actual act will take them till the cows come home.

Sorry but this is not "slow burn", this is "no burn".
