How did I love Can't Buy Me Love? Let me count the ways.
I love your hero. Having had some experience with someone who survived a physically and emotionally abusive father with no one around to protect him, I can tell you that you hit that nail right on the head. That combination of toughness and vulnerability? So real and so complex and absorbing.
I love your heroine. Oh, Tara Jean Sweet with your stash of Mike and Ike's and your hopes and dreams. Who could resist you? I certainly couldn't. I would have loved to be there so I could have been your friend. I know you needed one and, quite honestly, I generally have lemon drops in my purse.
I love your family drama. Oh, the loyalties and the jealousies and the love and the shifting allegiances and all the tangled up strings that bind us together. You write them so damn well.
I love our love. I love the respect you built between Luc and Tara. I love their journey of discovery. I love that they heal each other.
So thanks, Molly, for a great read and your general awesome-ness. Smoochies.
