I couldn't get past the fact that Ellie and Mason have such little self respect for themselves AND each otherEllie has been painfully shy and insecure her whole life She's the short chubby librarian in town and feels completely insignificant She can't fathom why a hottie like Mason would be interested in her even when he tells her numerous times how attracted he is to her how much he wants her likes her etc I confess I have little patience with virgin wallflower heroines to begin with so maybe I'm being too harsh on Ellie but it annoyed me that the author didn't give her even the tiniest smidgen of self esteem Mason comes from a prestigious wealthy family and has sidled up the ranks to town Mayor He wants Ellie Bad So when she comes asking to support funding for the library instead of a new football field he agrees if she will sleep with him Tactlessness aside this may not have been a big deal if Ellie was that kind of girl But she's not She's awkward shy Ellie who agrees to the proposal because she feels Mason is throwing her a bone and she'd be a fool to pass it up This infuriated meTurns out Mason was drunk when he made Ellie that offer Did I mention he has a drinking problem Yep Mason's got his own insecurities that he drowns with alcohol He's also in denial that he has a problem Oh and Mason doesn't want anyone to know they are a couple because he can't give her anything than sex Thus begins the pattern of M E's affair having a great time together when he is sober and him treating her like shit when he is drunk threatening to end the relationship then always coming back the next day spouting a lameass apology and wanting sex Meanwhile Ellie just sits back and lets him walk all over her Good lord woman grow a backbone Please Mason you know you're being an asshole DO something about itThey break up and she finally does realize she deserves better than his constant douchebaggery when she becomes pregnant How convenient Let's not deal with our problems and work them out let's throw in a plot ploy Wait it gets better When Mason finally admits to himself 'omg I am a bastard AND an alcoholic' he seeks help via counseling and Ellie overhears his confession of love through the overhead speaker Because again let's not talk face to face like adults ridiculous convenient loopholes are so much easierClearly I have issues with this book I didn't like the way Mason had to treat Ellie like crap in order for him to come to terms with his addiction More infuriating was how Ellie LET his behavior towards her slide because she was too timid to know better I get that their problems are not uncommon that people are unhappy and life can be sucky most of the time that relationships like this exist If the author left out contrived plot ploys and brought about their HEA in a dignified manner I would have had a lot respect for the story As it is I hated it Sorry

E has always had a crush on Mason Sweet and when they find themselves paired off at her sister's wedding Mason is flirtatious Ellie can't imagine what a popular mayor would want with a dowdy librarian but Mason is drawn to her curves unruly blonde curls. But I will stay sober not only for myself but for her tooI'm going to file this book under my inspiring shelf because I love the way how the hero who's an alcoholic learns how to overcome his addictionLook we all have addictions in our life Some are just dangerous than the others I have a book addiction and it's perfectly safe except for my wallet while others have it with alcohol cigarettes and abusive people I know that to beat it you have to accept that you have a problem and want to stop it yourselfShe asked me if I would get help If I loved her enough to get help Mason said his voice low and filled with pain Such a simple uestion with such a simple answerI love how this story ends It made me love how the characters have real life problems instead of superficial ones The way it was portrayed that alcoholism which may not be easy to defeat is still doable is perfect and it touched my stone cold heart
