California party planner, Poppy Reagan is a Type A personality who runs her professional life with the precision of Swiss watch. Unfortunately, her personal life is the pits. On Valentine’s Day she walks in on her boyfriend playing hide the snake with a 20 year old. T his isn’t the first boyfriend to cheat on her, and with her 33rd birthday approaching, Poppy decides it’s time to take her dating life as seriously as she does her business. She swears off the bad boys she’s normally attracted to, and strategically maps out a plan to find an honest, nice-looking man to become her life partner.
As she works her way through a string of hilariously bad dates, she begins to wonder if her soul mate actually lives in
California. Her foolish emotional spirit secretly yearns for the sexy Ohio dermatologist who she met on a trip to Hawaii last year. T he one who she insists is “just a friend,” because she refuses to engage in a long distance relationship. Can the good doctor convince her heart to over-rule her head and move this California girl to the midwest?
If you are looking for that Feel Good Book that will help you swoon your way through the Valentine Weekend then this just might be the book for you. This is your typical romance book that you might have found in the supermarket paperbook rack. It will leave you with a that feeling that love may exist for everyone out there, you just have to know where to look for it.
Poppy is your typical type A personality. She is an event planner who knows what she wants with her life and what exactly the perfect man would be to fit into her life. When she finds her loser boyfriend in bed with a much younger woman, she decides that she will go on vacation and find the love that she knows is out there for her. While on vacation, she meets dermatologist Adam. They have a very active time on their vacation when they leave, they both think that they are going to leave and go on with their lives away from each other. However they keep in touch and become good friends.
I love how the more you get to know you love Adam. It is very obvious that he has feeling for Polly. The internet dates that she goes on do bring a lot of laughs that added some depth to the book that you didn't even know that it needed. Polly at times was a little anal for my taste, but that just helped to show oh much her and Adam belonged together.
