I've read many, many romances featuring the Elizabeth and Jane Bennets of the world, but this was my first romance novel which featured a heroine who overwhelmingly reminds me of Lydia Bennet. In this novel, spoiled unthinking brat Marissa gets her come-uppance and grows up. She recognizes her own folly and isn't ashamed to grovel when she realizes she is wrong, which makes her all the more endearing. Jude is an amazing, intriguing sweet hero who I adored.Overall, I must say, that I found the book refreshing, fun, and different. Usually the horn-ball females in the romance world are the villains, but in this one she gets her own HEA. Me likey.
