And big blue eyes Unfortunately both of them start this new relationship with enough baggage for several couples Because of the secretive nature of Mason's courtship Ellie's already low self esteem hits rock bottom and Mason drowns his sorrows in alcohol I forced myself to finish this book I just felt that it portrayed the disease of alcholism as easily curable It also infuriated me that Mason kept driving while intoxicated and that Ellie didn't stop him or call someone or whatever Then we find out that his past DUI was totally swept under the rug? WTHeck?? Okay you are the MAYOR of the town and get a DUI and it is hidden from everyone? Maybe his DUI was a misdemeanor and not a felony so that makes it okay? But blaming his DUI on the fact that he was depressed after his divorce even though he admits that he didn't really love his ex wife?Ellie was a total twit at 30 and a librarian she should have a better head on her shoulders Her constant indecision and lack of self esteem got old uick She's always loved Mason and when the library is in trouble she approaches him for help because he is the mayor after all and he tells her he will help her if she sleeps with him What? I expected her to smack him a good one but she didn't Of course Mason was supposedly drunk when he asked her that and regretted it the next day so that makes it all okay because he asked her that when he was drunk It took Ellie FOR EV AH to figure out Mason had a drinking problem then she keeps second guessing herself Oh and Ginny the town crier knows everything there is to know about anything Except she never knew her boss the mayor got a DUI? How does that happen when she herself admits she knows everything that goes on? Of course eventually Mason realizes he is an ass and an alcoholic after he learns that he got Ellie pregnant so he goes to AA for 6 months and the town embraces him for it in fact let's make him the town hero After that the town keeps him as mayor the library is saved him and Ellie marry and even Mason's strained relationship with his dad is fixed HEATotal wall thrower for me

Wanting What You GetChunky and unpopular in high school Ellie Stepp was often the brunt of hurtful remarks and other cruel behavior Now a librarian in the very town where she had such a miserable adolescence Ellie has resigned herself to being overweight and single But Elli I couldn't get past the fact that Ellie and Mason have such little self respect for themselves AND each otherEllie has been painfully shy and insecure her whole life She's the short chubby librarian in town and feels completely insignificant She can't fathom why a hottie like Mason would be interested in her even when he tells her numerous times how attracted he is to her how much he wants her likes her etc I confess I have little patience with virgin wallflower heroines to begin with so maybe I'm being too harsh on Ellie but it annoyed me that the author didn't give her even the tiniest smidgen of self esteem Mason comes from a prestigious wealthy family and has sidled up the ranks to town Mayor He wants Ellie Bad So when she comes asking to support funding for the library instead of a new football field he agrees if she will sleep with him Tactlessness aside this may not have been a big deal if Ellie was that kind of girl But she's not She's awkward shy Ellie who agrees to the proposal because she feels Mason is throwing her a bone and she'd be a fool to pass it up This infuriated meTurns out Mason was drunk when he made Ellie that offer Did I mention he has a drinking problem? Yep Mason's got his own insecurities that he drowns with alcohol He's also in denial that he has a problem Oh and Mason doesn't want anyone to know they are a couple because he can't give her anything than sex Thus begins the pattern of M E's affair having a great time together when he is sober and him treating her like shit when he is drunk threatening to end the relationship then always coming back the next day spouting a lameass apology and wanting sex Meanwhile Ellie just sits back and lets him walk all over her Good lord woman grow a backbone Please Mason you know you're being an asshole DO something about itThey break up and she finally does realize she deserves better than his constant douchebaggery when she becomes pregnant How convenient Let's not deal with our problems and work them out let's throw in a plot ploy Wait it gets better When Mason finally admits to himself 'omg I am a bastard AND an alcoholic' he seeks help via counseling and Ellie overhears his confession of love through the overhead speaker Because again let's not talk face to face like adults ridiculous convenient loopholes are so much easierClearly I have issues with this book I didn't like the way Mason had to treat Ellie like crap in order for him to come to terms with his addiction More infuriating was how Ellie LET his behavior towards her slide because she was too timid to know better I get that their problems are not uncommon that people are unhappy and life can be sucky most of the time that relationships like this exist If the author left out contrived plot ploys and brought about their HEA in a dignified manner I would have had a lot respect for the story As it is I hated it Sorry
