I’m more convinced than ever that people let you down and it’s better to put my faith in science.


Love, like chemistry, has too many missing parts and unknowns.

I hate it when the romance, in books, turn out to be one big misunderstanding just because the person on the other end was being lame. But, then again the book would have ended really quickly if the said person wasn’t being lame.

  1. Oh man, big misunderstandings or one character (usually the female) jumping to an absurd conclusion are usually two of the easiest ways to get me to absolutely hate a romance! Hopefully this book turns out to be okay though. Happy reading, Jackie!

    Have a wonderful week. =)

  2. I think being lame is part of the human condition. My YA teaser this week is from This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills. Happy reading!

  3. Not crazy about a misunderstanding being the premise for a whole story. I end up wanting to slap the characters. I do like it when it’s written with humor though.

    My TT from Through Glass

  4. I like the quotes and I went to step into the cover and be at the beach.

  5. Can understand it, but it’s not a book for me. Glad you’re enjoying it though. My Teaser

  6. Ah… “the Big Miss” as in big misunderstanding. I’m not a fan, either.

    Great teaser. My teaser is from The Raven King by Nora Sakavic

  7. LOL! I totally agree. Stop the lameness… but then again, it wouldn’t have been a book without it. 😀 Nice quotes!

  8. Love this cover and title. But like you – bit misunderstandings that feel contrived…not so much.

    1. Ooops. That should read ‘big’ misunderstandings.

  9. I agree about the lameness. There was a recent book that particularly annoyed me in this regard. However, I also look at both sides of the coin and I realize that characteristically I am also afraid to speak up and directly address a crazy thought train I have with the person on the crazy thought train. My mind has a natural inclination to run with thoughts, and I am also a very non-confrontational person, so I can understand the lameness. I still don’t like a lot of it in my romance reads.
