I’ve kissed a lot of frogs, just to be covered in warts. I’ve been lied to, cheated on, and used more times than I can count. I don’t have it in me to keep going. I need a break from it all. I need time for the wounds to heal, and the scars to fade.
Wouldn’t you know it’s my luck, to meet a gorgeous man, after declaring my self-imposed break? He’s charming, sexy, and determined to change my mind.
I wasn’t looking for her, but when I overheard her conversation, I had to add my two cents. Within minutes of talking to her, I knew she was unlike anyone I’d ever met. Bruised from past relationships, she’s built a fort around her heart. Doesn’t she know the prince always rescues the princess?
I think about her all the time. The more I’m around her, the more I want to be. I’ve made my choice. It’s her. Now, all I have
to do is prove to her that I’m the difference.

This was a sweet story about Addy, a girl who kissed to many frogs in order to find her Prince Charming. Now she swears boys off and chooses to sit the bench.
What happens when you retell all your failed relationships in a bar, and a hot stranger overhears you and joins your table? Lucas is one of the good guys and immediately sees Addy as something he wants. Despite her being distant with him, he understands her fears and wants to prove her he is different.
By coincidence their two best friends hit is off as well, so double dates keep them seeing each other.
I enjoyed this book but had a few things that felt off. For instance, Addy kept bringing up every time they had a conversation how untrusty she was, accusing him of lying to her etc. I like my heroines a little more bad-ass, so needy female characters are a turn off for me. As opposed to Addy, Luke was great! He was not an Alpha male, but easily to like.
The story is plain simple, romance style, so do not expect major plot twists or gasping moments.
All in all, I read this book in one afternoon. It felt a bit rushed and at a fast pace I would have preferred to be more dramatic.
This book was given as an ARC, so my review is an honest one.
