Kieran Delaney-Schwartz—adoptee, underachiever, and self-professed slacker IT guy—lives his under-the-radar life by the motto: Don’t try, don’t fail. His adopted siblings are all overachievers thanks to his driven, liberal parents, but Kieran has elected to avoid disappointing anyone by not getting their hopes up. He’s coasting through his early twenties when he’s hit head-on by Theo. The successful decade-older Broadway producer sweeps him off his feet for a whirlwind thirteen months that are pretty sweet until it all comes screeching to a halt on Valentine’s Day, with an unexpected proposal via a NYC Times Square Flash mob.
This is another book I was looking for to reading. The title and cover just charmed me. The story however, left me with my head spinning. You know you have those stories and you wish they gave more details, well this one was a little too verbose. Too many words giving us the same information. Almost like it skipped the editing phase. And because of that, I had a very hard time staying in the story and ended up skim reading just to finish.
I loved the camaraderie of the original four friends. The loyalty they show each other. Kieran I found to be a little annoying and forced. Theo has grown up to be a dashing lovable director and his over the top attitude shows through out the book.
The three friends while try to help Theo and Kieran end up having there own issues and just making a already wordy story even more confusing. And probably cause more damage to an already fragile relationship. This is book one in the series, and one I will not be following .
