With a check list in hand Lizzie Hampton returns home with one particular goal in mind, Finn Robbins. Finn isn’t looking for attachments, he has had enough of marriage and has enough priorities as it is. When Lizzie and Finn meet again the feelings they had when they were teenagers is back in full force but as the feelings continue to grow they both question if what they have is anything but temporary.
There is another part of the story that delves into Lizzie losing weight and the reasons behind it as well as the reason Lizzie is wanting a tryst with Finn. There were elements I loved about this book but a few that I had to scratch my head about. I am a sucker about ugly duckling stories though so it worked well for what I was looking for.
