Take a Chance on Me - Susan Donovan 3.5-4 stars. A good number of laugh out loud moments. I like how the attraction is instant, and they don't really fight their falling in love with each other (i.e. minimal angst). Thomas is a blonde Adonis who was emotionally closed off up until now, when a voluptuous vet throws everything in his life for a loop. Emma is a good woman - thoughtful, funny, intelligent, and with a lust for life...and Thomas. There is a scene with flowers that really made my toes tingle and left me grinning ear to ear, even when I immediately went back and read it a second time because it was so sweet and romantic. This book is zany and totally not realistic, but hey...it's romance escapism in all its unabashedly heart-warming glory.
