I’m not really fussy when it comes to book covers for I’m an avid believer of the famous quote “don’t judge the book by its cover” although, I also believe that it doesn’t work all the time. But if I will be ask to choose among all of Mina Esguerra’s books based on their cover, I’ll definitely choose this one. I just love the color and the picture of a girl reading in this cover. Then I will later find out that it’s a good a choice for it’s a good read after all.
Just like any other works of Ms. Mina Esguerra, this is a short and delectable read. I don’t know why but I always have this thing on stories about bad-boy-turned-good-because-of-a-girl and this book has that kind of plot so I love it. Just like Julie, I’m the manang type and I don’t easily trust guys specially If I already know that he’s the playboy type. But then, it is also flattering when the bad guy decided to change into a better person because of girl so when the story unfolds that Anton turned out to be that kind of guy, I can’t help but feel sorry for Julie for letting him go. I’m glad that everyone deserves a second a chance so we can have a life happily ever after all.
