Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

Tessa Monroe knows how to do exactly two things: climb her way up the corporate ladder and cheer up her best friend Christian Douglas, the main man in her life since paste was a snack. With the exception of a Ring Pop proposal and a pool-side kiss in college, not much has changed between them in 25 years. Now that they’re all grown up, the two friends find themselves headed down two different paths: Tessa looking for her dream job and Christian looking for his dream girl.

Luckily for Christian, Tessa knows just the girl who’ll mend his heart after a bad breakup. But when things between Christian and his new girl Savannah start to get serious, Tessa isn’t feeling the pride and happiness she expected… In fact, there’s something weird in her heart that she can’t quite name.

With no plans for romance or marriage, Tessa isn’t prepared to confront her true feelings for Christian. After all they’ve been through together, can she risk her heart, his happiness, and their friendship by telling him the truth? OR does she run away from the romance that began in the third grade?

Friendship and romance combine with messy results, but A Previous Engagement celebrates the humor of real-life love in a story that resonates as honest from beginning to end.

Either because of my testicles or because I'm just that way, I avoid romances. They seem to only be possible when incredibly stupid people are the characters. The main character in A Previous Engagement (a clever title, by the way), fits the category perfectly. I thought the male paramour did as well until I was most of the way through the book. Then I realized he wasn't suffering from a series of major concussion, he was just overly sentimental and emotional for a man. Definitely not a man's man, but perhaps he fits with the modern metrosexual kind of guy that's become so popular. I prefer the 80's action movie hero kind of guy. Or The Duke.

One other thing bothered me C the book leaves the impression that it's unfavorable for a woman to have a successful career. The main character strives to do so, but she's not complete without a partner and family in her life. I find that a flawed lesson. Why should a person be required to have a family to be complete?

That's the bad, here comes the good.

The book was very well written. The main character amused me time and again (when she wasn't aggravating me by being oblivious), thanks to the author's skill with putting words together. I faintly remember one chapter starting with a sentence that was too long and made no sense, but I was able to move past it easily and find no other flaws. Coming from another writer, that's a major success.

I read the book in a matter of hours, another feather in Stephanie's hat. I abhor the genre yet she kept me reading. I wanted to reach in and strangle the characters because they seemed to be inexplicably stupid from the very beginning, but still I read on. I say 'inexplicably stupid' but that does not mean they are without precedent. Virtually any romance movie available or even some distant relatives of mine have displayed similar or near exact levels of ignorance and dumbassery. So yes, I thought they were dumb but it's a dumb that I've seen many times before in fiction and in fact.

For someone who enjoys the genre, I recommend the book highly.

I heard about this book through word of mouth - and although I had not heard of the author before, I thought I would give it a try. The opening pages hooked me and I had trouble putting the book down - hoping for the happy ending I wanted, and getting every bit of that and more! The characters and their interactions with friends and family members were true to life - more so than in some other books in this genre where best friends are always supportive or the two destined lovers are perfect for each other. These characters had flaws that made them who they were and made the story jump from the page. I am looking forward to reading more by Stephanie Hadded.

I'm sad to write this because from the synopsis I really wanted to like this book.. And I did the first chapter , I loved the playground proposal , with the blow pop ring so darrling .. And the end when basically was same chapter as first just older.. My problem, the entire thing in the middle.. This was so drug out and I really didnt even care of root for the main character, I found her selfish and annoying at times . Didnt even see that much of the hero to even have a opinion of him.. Id have to say pass .. If you like the plotline read TJ dell Saving face, Along the same type of line but much more substance , and enjoyable read

In searching for free books for my Kindle, I stumbled upon this one. I have to say - for free, it's a bargain, especially compared to the other free books I've encountered. It's entertaining, and a fast read. The plot is predictable, the characters fit a bit too nicely into their molds, and Tessie's inability to realize how Christian feels is hard to swallow. I spent a good part of the novel rolling my eyes because, come on - he did everything short of screaming it at her.

That said, the writing style is fluid and very readable. The dialogue is believable. The relationships are strong and also believable, for the most part. I easily fell in love with Christian. I'm a writer too - and crafting strong relationships and good dialogue will get you far. Had the on-again/off-again relationship between Tessie and Christian been tamed a bit, I'd have given this four stars for sure.

I'd definitely consider reading more of her work.

At the end of the day, I guess a job cant give you a hug or ask how your day was. It certainly didnt cuddle with you when you watched a movie or take care of you when you were ill. Jobs were great when you were at work, but left much to be desired once you stepped out of the office. &quote;

Tess raised her own glass, paused, and then handed it to Christian. To not drinking alcohol for the next nine months or so. &quote;
