PLEASE TAKE YOUR SEATS. THE JOURNEY TO HAPPINESS MAY INVOLVE SOME TURBULENCE.
Christa Morrison has commitment issues, a fact that quickly becomes apparent after she flees a romantic proposal in Paris, the thunder of impending wedding bells ringing in her ears.
Back in Sydney, she turns to her closest friends for reassurance. Instead they offer her a startling and painful diagnosis: she’s a relationship junkie. The cure? An extreme rehabilitation program guaranteed to reform even the most L-word illiterate.
With her girlfriends along for the ride, Christa commits to their radical plan and the chances of recovery look good. The only problem is Max Spencer. The one guy Christa—and her friends—never expected her to fall for. But he’s proving to be a temptation she may not have the willpower to resist …
For a shot at happiness, is being with Max worth betraying her friends? And will Christa have the strength to trust her heart when her colorful relationship history comes back to haunt her?
It might just be enough to make a poor girl leave the country (again).
The style of writing was quite easy to read. There were a few Australian figures of speech that I didn’t quite get but I understood the gist of it. I wasn’t committed to the story from the start as it bored me a little. I forced myself to keep reading and I’m glad that I did. The story redeemed itself a few chapters in and then I started enjoying it.
I enjoyed the storyline as Christa struggled with her past love life and how she felt about Max. I have a feeling that Cate and Ben would hit it off and I’m sure it’s going to feature in the series. I didn’t relate to the protagonist because I don’t have the same problem as her and sometimes I wanted to shake some sense into Christa but she grew on me and I started understanding her a bit more.
The dialogue was quite confusing at times as there are sometimes four people talking but you aren’t told who is saying what. The actual dialogue, on the other hand, was understandable and mostly relatable. I loved how each character was so vastly different and made a big difference in the way the story progressed.
A small warning for sensitive readers. The sex scenes are descriptive so if that bothers you then you may want to skip it. This book is part of a series. I enjoyed it because the story is completed and the next book in the series is about one of her friends.
Christa not knowing how she really feels is what a lot of people go through sometimes. Life gets in the way and you basically rush through your life and want to run whenever something isn’t what you expected. The theme is how she has to face this head on and I enjoyed how the story unraveled itself.
The plot was believable and showed how life happens today and what happens today, especially when there’s lack of proper communication. I was kept guessing as to what the root of Christa’s problem was and what had happened to Max. The love story between Christa and Max was heart wrenching and beautiful at the same time.
