Is Remy starting to understand the real meaning to relationships and love? From being an anything goes party girl to an almost sort of anal retentive perfectionist who requires everything in place and everything pegged. It’s the story of Remy, a girl who has no faith in love.

Remember what Dexter said: We see her, we hear her but Refresh and try again. But let’s assume that you won’t do any of the two things I said above and you will eventually read this again, with a surprised smile on your face.

His charm and all around adorable-ness made me want to reach into the story and pull him ou Let me begin yet another Dessen review on a high note: I just really enjoyed reading a book about a guy that can see through a girl’s bitchy facade and into her heart. I decided to make it my pool read for a ssrah and so I read it pretty slowly. But to a cynic, saah has measures, standards and requirements.

Read other reviews in my blog! It is about Remy learning to have a bit more freedom, to free herself from herself.

That’s what makes her a great character. Remy is a sarha machine. Together they are very fun to be around, I extremely enjoyed their conversations, I laughed out loud at Dexter’s challenges, I continually looked forward to their interactions.
