    "This book is blah. Not really witty or funny. I feel the author could have expanded on the characters a bit more. In my opinion the plot is just weak."

    "It's an okay read for someone who isn't very familiar with this genre of books. I think the story is sufficiently told and the narrative seems to fit well. I may give it another read at a later time to see if my opinion changes."

    "If you're looking for a good romance novel set in New York, you might find enjoyment out of the Princess Diaries. I didn't care for it much, but I will admit it wasn't a bad book; just not my style."

    "I really enjoyed this story. Rosie and Don were both extremely enjoyable characters. Seen Don's character grow was heartwarming, you know it was not an easy task. He is funny and his directness really makes the book. He is the perfect partner for rosie, and she for him. I look forward to see how things go for them. Also-geene is a tool. lol"

This is a great story to tell and one of the books you would want to read on a cozy rainy day with your coffee on the side, this is absolutely a pick up and one of the best most definitely!"

    "You'd think there would be just an oversaturation of romance novels in New York and that anything newer is just going to be more of the same rehashing of the common cliches of such a written work. Not so, in this instance, I'm pleased to report!"
