“They’re baaaaccck,” Tracy sing-songed as she passed by where I was trying to study.

I didn’t look up. “Who?”

“Them.” She gestured with her chin.

I finally looked up to see the small group of Marines coming into the restaurant where I worked part-time. I snorted and looked back down at my book. “I guess they can come in if they want to,” I said, turning a page. “This is a restaurant and they have to eat.”

“And flirt with everything in a skirt.” She paused, looking over at me. “Aren’t you going over there? They are sitting down in your section.”

Damn, she was right. I closed my book. So much for studying. I grabbed the menus and headed over to the table where the men sat, talking. As I approached, I took a moment to check them out.

    The best thing I can say about this book is that the writing was mediocre. The plot was lackluster and boring. The main character, Alessandra's brother and family were confusing and didn't seem to care much about her. The supposed "hero" cheated on her and then walks back, three years later, and Alessandra just forgives him like it's no big deal. I wouldn't recommend this book at all. If it wasn't free, I would seriously regret buying it. As it stands, I feel like I wasted my time reading it.
