REVIEW, Because it's True by Willa Okati

Because it’s True
Series: --
Pub:  2010 by Loose ID
Author: Willa Okati
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Format: iBook; 275p w/ 28 chapters
Whose: Gavin & Ford
Age Range: adult

Believing in love and in luck is something Gavin swore he’d never do again -- until he meets Ford. After being left at the altar by his former fiancé, he's a firm disbeliever in good fortune and love. Though there’s an immediate attraction between himself and Ford, they're just too different to make a relationship work. The sex is explosive and despite himself Gavin even grows to like Ford’s quirky sense of humor and skewed view of life. Isn’t that good enough?

Not for Ford. A happy-go-lucky diviner of fortunes and omens, he’s sure from what he’s seen that Gavin is the love of his life and the man he’ll marry. He makes it his mission to overcome Gavin’s doubts and fears and teach him how to love again. Never giving up in his enthusiastic pursuit of the once-burned twice-shy secretary, he brings Gavin back to life and helps restore him to the man he used to be.

Ford makes Gavin want to believe in love again. But when Ford begins to lose his faith, it’s up to Gavin to save the magic they have between them and blaze the trail toward their happily ever after.

So…. This book was all about marriage. Yep. That’s about it.

It’s a sweet book that comes about with signs. It’s in your face, and pulled back. It’s got some high points and low points, and at the end the whole thing ends the way it begins.

I’m finding it a little hard to write about this book, because there wasn’t anything remarkable about it. and yet there wasn’t anything bad either, it just sits there, in the middle. Minding its own business and waiting it’s turn.
I found it a quick read, and it was engaging, and yet, I could have put it down (in fact I did serveral times) and not come back to it. there was nothing in it that made you crave the rest—hell, you already knew what was going to happen. There isn’t really anything surprising in it.
Though I’m glad that I read it. I’m glad that it wasn’t heavy. I’m even glad that I could smile and relax the whole time.

To be honest this was probably the best you would ever get if you happened to be a fly on a wall. There wasn’t anything that really made you sympathise, there wasn’t anything that made you cringe, and there wasn’t anything that made you hate. Even Gavin’s off of an ex.
It was a sweet book about to people falling in love—no, not even that, because Ford was saying I love you from chapter two and everything.

I’m glad that I read it. It’s sweet, but there wasn’t anything that would make me pick it up again.
Though saying this, it was the first book I have read it a long long (if not only time) that actually respected and understood the concept of height. Really, there was a foot difference in height between these two, and it was shown the whole time, no impossible sex moves. No….yeah, it was just done well.
Oh, and there was nothing in this book about discrimination. Which was anything great thing I think. At least it wasn’t a part of the story line and so it was never mentioned.
