The only reason I finished this book is because I owned it, which is good, because I did rather enjoy the second half when I could finally just let myself enjoy the ride.Otherwise, it turns out I have little to say because there's a reason I don't read much genre fiction anymore. It's because it takes too much work to enjoy a read that supposed to take no work at all. After all, that's what trippy little 'action' romances are for. Don't hate me for hating, I picked this hardcover up on clearance after I gorged myself on Jennifer Crusie's at the library a few years ago, and by the time I got around to reading it I'd outgrown the style.For what it is, it's awesome, and for the intended audience, I recommend it. The mob thing is silly and can't quite support the angst, but if you are looking for a romance with a few laughs, I'd give it a thumbs up.
