Utterly cheesy and annoying.


Don't have the energy or interest to give this a proper review but found little enjoyment in this story. Sophie was such a flat, annoying character. Felt no chemistry between the two leading characters. Her new career defied any form of belief. Who slaps together a website in a couple of days, quits their job w/o notice (today is my last day), has money to hire help and anticipates needing "a few months" to get her rivetingreads.com site making enough ad revenue to support herself. News flash sweetie, they call that a blog. Something people do in their spare time. After a year or two when they've built up content and traffic and worked out advertising, maybe, just maybe they can quit their job.

The whole thing was lazy writing, formulaic plot and boring lead characters. Hallmark should have tried harder.

Ugh -- it was awful!! And I wanted to like it so bad since I like the actors playing the main characters.

I agree with all of the above. Just not believable at all. Makes me wonder why I watch these hallmark movies.

I agree! Main character (woman) was annoying and arrogant. I couldn't understand why he fancied her at all!

Totally agree with the op. So cheesy! Plus they fell in love too fast...

Agree with all you said OP. I would like to add that the acting (only possible exception of Amy A.), writing, editing was really horrible. I guess I should say, I'm not one to watch many made for T.V. Hallmark movies, but this seems to be on par with most of the ones I've seen. I realize they are supposed to be the equivalent of reading an overly-cheesy and full-of-fluff romance novel, but I'm sure there has to be some better talent out there - regardless of the budget! I mean...the story had potential! Eeeesh!
