But when Will becomes a Youtube sensation, thanks to his delicious cookery demos (both the food and his smile!), their life of contentment come crashing down around them. Can Jayne have her Tiramisu and eat it?
I bought this book on a whim because I adored the cover and thought the blurb sounded really interesting and cute. Also, I adore chick lit novels and am always in search of my next "go to" chick lit author. Unfortunately, I can't say this is my favorite chick lit novel. It's cute and sweet, but felt like the pacing of the story was a bit wacky because it seemed like there was too much time between each chapter (which added enough confusion to throw me off) It was sort of like there was a fast forward button as in one chapter the heroine reconnected with her long lost friend of 20 years and in the next they were in a committed relationship that appeared to have been going on for months. Perhaps if each chapter gave us a date or something to signify how much time had passed between the chapters I would have liked it better? Maybe. Another thing that threw me off a bit was the sentimentalization of the stories hero literally becomes famous for his good looks and cooking skills which were recorded on YouTube. Sure, this COULD happen, but in a span of a week? A month? And then he's on the red carpet? Seems a little far fetched for me.
Other than all of this (and remember this is just my personal opinions and preferences) I did enjoy the story and the characters. Jayne, the heroine, isn't your typical heroine as she is not the perfectly petite and naive woman we are seeing in many books and Will is very charming and lovable. The authors writing style is also very good as eve though the pacing was confusing, the way she voices the story is wonderful.
Readers who are looking for a lighthearted novel, and those who enjoy the chick lit or women's fiction genre may want to pick up Me, You, and Tiramisu. Although my rating for this story is 3 stars, I would still recommend it to readers because I think many others would enjoy it.
