MrsNorthman's Review:

3.5/5 Fangs

This is a cute story with an unexpected twist.
Casey has a checklist of requirements for her future husband.  On the top of that list is someone who wants to have babies.  Sadly, that's the one thing that Jason is lacking.  It's disappointing because he's truly the PERFECT boyfriend for her.  He makes her laugh, takes care of her, shares her obsession for skiing and is extremely sexy.  She ends up dumping him anyway.  But that doesn't stop her from running back to him when her new relationships don't work out.  She totally uses him. 
She moves from Vermont to Colorado to pursue a dream of becoming a ski instructor and to forget about Jason.  She ends up meeting, Blaine, who seems to be the whole package.  She can envision a future full of babies with him, even though there are some serious red flags.  Things get confusing for Casey when Jason ends up in Colorado.  It takes her way too long, but she learns that things might not always be as perfect as they seem.  Maybe everything she ever wanted was right in front of her all along, she just didn't realize it.
There were a lot of things that I liked about this book.  The storyline was different, the secondary characters were great and skiing was interesting.  What I didn't like was Casey's questionable decisions.  Who would dump Jason?
