I was actually a little surprised at the vulgarity of this book. I don’t mean that it was gross, but it was very blunt and to the point on the sexuality. I knew, by the description, that it wasn’t all innocent, but the vivid and wild thoughts of the characters, and the loose thinking of sexual behavior was bit much for me at times. Although, once again, given the topic matter was more my fault than anyone.
On the other hand, the thoughts of the characters, I felt, was also one of the best qualities of this book. It was funny to watch both Jillian and Marcus chastise themselves was humorous. The story line was fun and light, but also touched on some serious self confidence issues that men and women pass on to one another by their behavior. Jillian learned to live and love again through forgiveness – and that is probably the best happily ever after there is.
