You heard from the other readers, it's a book about a girl who is (in her words) hot and her next door neighbour who is perfect other than the fact he's in a wheelchair.
I gotta say I enjoyed this book, really did but the main character Tasha starts off likeable but then midway through she becomes conceited to the point of unlikable.
It's not unusual for a character in chick lit to be self - absorbed but she then goes overboard and really acts like a bit of a cow.
The author writes a series of flashbacks which show her as being totally awful to her supposed best friend Jason when they were kids. I lost all empathy at this point especially when she didn't seem to have grown as a person in adulthood. When recalling these incidents she feels a little bad but ultimately decides that because she was gorgeous as a teen then she had the right to treat him like dirt for being a geek.
Jason comes across as a total doormat and he's ready to accept anything she wants to do. I kept reading because he is really likeable and the 80's references were cool.
The book played down his disability in some ways (New York City is NO problem for him at all!) but made it a big deal in others. For example, she constantly seems to think people assume they're NOT a couple, that people think him unworthy of anyone. She's even told at one point that she would only be with him because she's a desperate old maid of 32 (gasp!!!). This book assumes the worst of the general public!!
Ultimately it feels like Tasha is doing Jason a favour when he should find himself a decent woman.
I gotta admit the writing is sharp though and it passed a day!
