The love she has for him is different from her fiancée and it scares her. Robin is everything she wants in a man but knows he will never commit to a woman like her. Can she figure out who is the right man for her?
When I first got this book to review I was intrigued by the man’s name and his situation with his best friend. I felt for Robin seeing him just standing on the sidelines while being in love with his best friend. Now Anna just seemed a little to confuse at most times. I mean I loved that even though Anna was having a hard time with a mom in law from hell Robin stood by her more than the actual fiancée in the book. Seemed to me though a little competition would have been great and Robin just got it too easy to me. All in all these two were great yet seemed more like just friends than actual two people in love. Other than that it was a good book and one that shows how far a true will go to get the woman he has always loved.
