Book 27: The Smart One and the Pretty One

Sister power! Having two sisters, and being in the middle of our sisterly trio, this book certainly appealed to me. I loved how their relationship was portrayed and it made me absolutely miss my sisters. Ava and Lauren so similar but yet distinctly individuals. And ahh the arranged marriage scenario. It played a small but cute role. And oh Russell Markowitz. Ava is a lucky girl.  When he added Pygmalion and Galatea into his argument, I just about sighed like one of those lovesick puppies.


Russell “I’d be attracted to you no matter what you wore. In fact, you could be naked, Ava, and I’d be attracted to you. Really. I mean that.” (181) Now this although quite a quip, did not lead to the characters dancing the horizontal tango.

“He smiled down into her eyes and she looked right at him and she knew him. When hadn’t she known him? With a little sigh of acceptance, she moved into his arms, meeting his eager kiss with a mouth that was just as greedy as him” (279)

Hehe. I find that I am a great lover of italics.
