Janie is interesting, she certainly views the world in a different way than most.  When she gets nervous she begins to spew off random facts. This book was very sweet and cute and it does like the steam of Kiss Quotient but it very much has the same heart.  I loved that Janie is a little quirky.  I also loved that Quinn aka Sir McHotpants knew exactly how to handle her.

Janie could have been a really annoying character, but surprisingly she wasn’t.  I mean she certainly doesn’t act the way that I would in certain situations, but that was what was fun about reading this book.  She isn’t the typical character that you read about in books, especially not romance.  

Quinn was well yeah Sir McHotpants indeed.  He was completely understanding with Janie and saw her value even when she didn’t.  I loved how protective he was of her, and though I wish had had perhaps been a little more forthcoming with information, I understand you need that for the story.
