Elliot Beck is an all-around good guy. He is a steady, hardworking man, loyal and constant in his affection. He is nurturing towards his obsessive-compulsive romance novelist girlfriend but in no way thinks of her in a paternal manner. Elliot is accepting of all her idiosyncrasies. He is an average man in love.
Romance novelist Erika Seals copes with her disorder and the good and bad moods that come with it. She urgently wants to be a published author and this leads to a lot of self-esteem issues and an excessive amount of cleaning. She is managing her life with the help of a supportive boyfriend, a great pair of gloves, and her daily medication.
Erika is dealing with a lot in her life right now. Her landlords, who also happen to be her boyfriend's parents, are back in town for a visit and every excursion they go on ends up a calamity for Erika. She is going back to school and Elliot's ex is her classmate. Maricela affects Erika's self-confidence like no one else, and she's already dealing with her father's embarrassment over her chosen profession. On the upside, Erika lands an agent and is finally about to become published.
Evie Alexis taps out a contemporary tale of humorous romance. I am sorry to say that I did not find the main character likable, occasionally she made me laugh, but I felt zero connection to her. Perhaps if I had read the first book in the series I would have a deeper understanding of her. I did enjoy the scenes of humor and insight into the life of someone suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder. I adored Elliot. He is wonderful, the type of unsung hero who is often overlooked and under-appreciated. Overall, this is a pleasing story that does not take serious issues too solemnly.
