The story follows 33 year old Bella who lost her partner in a workplace accident two years back. She is looking simply for a hookup and has no interest in falling in love again. Along comes Will; 37, charming and totes into her (what?). Things progress quickly and after meeting each others families, Bella pushes him away because she doesn't want to get hurt again.
I mean, I feel for Bella. Losing Patrick completely changed her and her life and I can definitely relate. But Bella becomes so self absorbed and takes all her problems out on everyone else. She has a huge chip on her shoulder and acts as if the world owes her. Sure, this is something everyone goes through I know, but it just irritates me that though other characters in the book are suffering (and she knows they are) she doesn't care, but expects them to care about her. The other characters are okay; Will is a total sweetheart! The story line though just dragged on and found myself skimming quite a lot.
