My Review

This is a great light and quick read. I really needed something light and fluffy after reading Rape Girl and this one fir the bill.
We meet Elyse who has sworn of boys and Valentine's Day. She is working in a card shop,with her new friend Dina. Elyse's boyfriend and best friend betrayed her last Valentine's Day in the worst possible way, and she just can't seem to really let go of it.
I enjoyed Elyse and Patrick the most out of the characters, Dina irked me so much with how stuck on her ex she was. I never could understand girls like that.  The entire book was just so cute and funny, yes it got a little predictable and you just knew what was going to happen, but it's like I couldn't stop reading. I loved that even though the book was short at just over 200 pages, the characters were developed enough for you to either love them or hate them. And Frank, Patrick's grandfather was an amazing little gem added to the story.
