So, this book. Couldn't put it down, ignored a few friends to continue it, and stayed up to finish it. And I don't understand why at all.
This is not to say that it is a mystery why anyone would enjoy this book. The characters all hop off the page, the heroine is appropriately soft and hard at the same time, the hero is delightfully beta (despite looking like a Russian assassin), and the dogs are the best thing ever. I had a great time reading this book and would probably read it again on a day in need of a good pick-me-up.
So on second thought I suppose I understand why I bulldozed most of today's priorities for this book after all.
