I am back and forth on this title, honestly.

I liked Paige and I liked Apollo. I thought they seemed like real people, and I thought their reactions were real. But, for me, the situations they found themselves in just didn't quite work for me.

They had a fling 3 years ago, and on the heels of a messy and awkward break up, Paige decides to see f the marriage in Vegas from 3 years ago actually happened. I get not looking into silly things that happen on vacation, but she lives in Las Vegas, the fling was with Apollo. So, I was not able to quite get past that issue. So, no matter how much liked the central characters, not believing the premise makes it a little tough to fully invest in the story.

That said, this was a quick read, and it was fun. It lived up to it's name, even if there was nothing spectacular about it and it was, in places, a bit cliche. I liked the use of Greece as almost another character in the story, and I was able to buy into the eventual resolution of their relationship the fact that they each lived in different countries, so that helped at the conclusion of the story.

Basically, I enjoyed this. I didn't love it, and it definitely had points that took me out of the story, but it is a good, lighter read. I do recommend it.

Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible.

She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985.
