First, she stole my parking spot. Then we became friends. Then I fell completely, mind-torturingly in love with her. Oh, wait--I think that happened first...

Why I picked this story up:
I signed up to review this because the style of the summary hinted at lots of humor, so even though it's the third book in a series, I looked at the low page number and told myself, "Just go with it."
What I found:
Cute is the only word I have for this. Jamie's down-to-earth, honest, cavalier, and a bit geeky personality was perfectly adorable, and I kept thinking, "It's so fluffy, I'm gonna die!" That stopped when things got heated, though. I didn't expect him to be like this in the sack, which made it kinda extra sexy. Sky and him made a very nice pair full of playful teasing, little gestures of affection, and I love this kind of thing because it's what I have with my better half. 😉
So while I generally liked them both, but Jamie definitively more than Sky, and I thought the sexiness was sufficient, the story still had some bumpy parts. It read a bit too much like seperate scenes strung together, not perfectly fluent. I liked the long-distance part, and how Jamie handled it, but sadly I couldn't complete hit it with Sky, and there was a whole lot of potential that wasn't harvested. 🙁
