Maybe it was wrong, or maybe impossible, but I wanted the truth to be one thing. One solid thing.
Quinn is surrounded by women who have had their hearts broken. Between her mother, her aunt, and her grandmother, Quinn hears nothing but cautionary tales. She tries to be an optimist -- after all, she's the dependable one, the girl who never makes foolish choices. But when she is abruptly and unceremoniously dumped, Quinn starts to think maybe there really are no good men.
It doesn't help that she's gingerly handling a renewed relationship with her formerly absent father. He's a little bit of a lot of things: charming, selfish, eccentric, lazy...but he's her dad, and Quinn's just happy to have him around again. Until she realizes how horribly he's treated the many women in his life, how he's stolen more than just their hearts. Determined to, for once, take action in her life, Quinn joins forces with the half sister she's never met and the little sister she'll do anything to protect. Together, they set out to right her father's wrongs...and in doing so, begin to uncover what they're really looking for: the truth.
To be quite frank, I did not enjoy this book. Okay, there were some cute parts to it that I really enjoyed, but overall I found this book to be a bore. It wasn't at all what I expected it to be (I did read the description). The cover doesn't really relate to the story either, for that matter. I'm not sure why I read the entire book, but I did.
I found the entire storyline very flat, although that's not what you would expect. I expected there to be high running emotions, and the like but that wasn't what I got. This book just really bored me. I didn't care for the plot. In fact, I found it Quinn's goal rather...awkward? I understand that it was supposed to be closure of some sort, but I felt that there wasn't enough emotional drive towards her goal. I couldn't feel Quinn's emotions. I couldn't relate to her. When I read this book I felt like I was watching a boring movie while I was half asleep.
I don't recommend this.
Like: The cute moments.
Dislikes: Boring plot, couldn't relate to character.
