MY REVIEW -
Very sweet, wholesome romance. This is a sweet romance, and I enjoyed it! Loved that this story is based off real life people! I listened to the audio version of the story, and the narrator does a good job. Joss' family used to live in Papua New Guinea, but after the death of her mother, Joss and her family moved back to the states. Joss is still having a difficult time with the death of her mother, and has put up some walls because of it, and also because of a jerk of an ex. Joss is a bit quirky, and says some weird things at times, but that's just because she grew up in a different type of place. Joss meets Ben, the brother of one of her friends, at one of his monthly singles parties. She's attracted to Ben, but doesn't think he's right for her. Which I totally get, he seemed a little too charming for his own good and his monthly singles parties didn't exactly say he's looking for a committed relationship, so I was with Joss on not falling for his charming ways right away. Ben feels something for Joss beyond just a passing fancy, so he's willing to do what he needs to in order to win Joss' heart. Loved the origami angle, and found the story interesting. The story left me with a wonderful feeling.
