ARC: To See You - Rachel Blaufeld

Published Date: June 20, 2016
Genre: Romance
Synopsis: What is it about this guy?
On paper, he’s one hundred percent wrong for me. His e-mails are equal parts annoying and funny.
Okay, more funny than annoying. More like refreshing. Different. Exciting.
But as I stand next to him now, he’s giving me head-to-toe tingles, and I find myself dwelling on his e-mails.

Meet smart, sexy career girl and New York snob, Charli Richards. She has everything except happiness until the day she meets Layton Griffin. It’s a random encounter on an airplane; it couldn’t mean anything, right?

Layton isn’t even remotely close to who Charli sees herself hooking up with . . . ever. Her mom and best friend agree he’s not for her, but he makes her feel something exciting, awakens her world.

But then Layton changes, going to great lengths for Charli to see him for who he really is.
Will those changes bring them closer together, or will she never be able to see him in the same way again?

To be honest, I don't know how I really felt about this book in general. 

Here we have a shallow girl who thinks very highly of herself. Which there is nothing wrong with. Other than the fact that she looked with disdain at the guy who did not fit her standards in looks. Personality wise, no problem there. It was his looks that turned her off. Why? She was a fitness editor for a magazine. 

But no matter how hard he works to get her attention, he only feels that he is wearing her out. But you can see her eventually turning her bad attitude around because Layton makes her feel guilty for being so high and almighty. Only when she sees him years later, her view on him is dramatically changed. Why? Because he is hot now. 

That is exactly how she describes him. 

Shallow and conceited overlooked, this was a cute and romantic book. Something that was long overdue for my mind. Though, I tend to focus a lot on romance... But this book is a good 3.7 out of 5 stars if I take everything into account. It definitely would have been lower if I didn't ultimately fall in love with Layton's gentle and persistent nature. 

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
