(Better Date than Never series, Book #2)

Even though Gina and Chris are pretending, their relationship begins to feel painfully real. Fearing she might be falling for another fly-by man, Gina must focus on Ethan so she doesn’t make the same dating mistakes all over again.
This story made me pout disappointedly in the beginning as I was expecting the same kind of feeling as the first book I read in this series. I read this volume slowly like I normally does to books that hasn't properly gripped me yet. It was around forty percent when things started to get exciting for me. I was falling for Chris, well, Ethan was nice but there's something about Chris that made like him better. And that was answered in the end.
And it wasn't only Gina's heart that flipped over when she receive this text. "Wear the sweats you wore to the office Monday if you want. Whenever you walk into a room, I can't take my eyes off you" My emotion burst and I was squealing like a starstruck teen.
I was a bit annoyed with Gina's indecisiveness and I honestly thought that I would be marking this book with 3 stars, maybe 4 but by the end of the book, I was so satisfied I want to make it 5 afterall.
