This was a fun read and I liked the family meddling and even the romance, but the secrets for me was changing point. I never would accept Josh back after realizing he was responsible for months of stalker behavior. He is a reporter and for months now the only subject in his column is Tess career, so after he came clean it was a bit strange for me the way she just forgot things.
I liked Tess family, they are fun and very honest but didn’t liked the way they kept pushing things when all of them had something to lose especially Tess, it fell like a betrayal for me. Tess in the entire was this fun and cute girl who had no idea what to do in her kitchen, but she made things up and really new how to light up a room, but her life was a controlled mess and when Josh appeared things got a little out of hand.
I liked these two together, because Tess brought more life to Josh, he only think about career and we can clearly see that family is touchy subject, so this was nice. But Josh could have changed things earlier in the book for me.
