The Commitment Test is book 2 after the first book, The Man Test, and this book completes this perfect duo. You don't need to read Book One, but it sure does make this story better if you do. This book continues on with Marin and James' love story, although it seems rocky at times, especially when James doesn’t propose on Valentine’s Day, the day Marin is positive he is going to propose, about a million things go through her head. Everything is perfect for them, especially after The Man Test, so what happened? What went wrong? Why did he not propose?
You don't know what's going to happen when along comes her old college boyfriend up in HER town! This was pretty amazing!
There is some fun humor written in this book, but it is greatly needed at times for poor Marin, who doesn’t think she’ll ever get engaged, let alone get married! Shall we say Type A personality?! Marin likes things to go as planned, and when they don’t, she somewhat falls apart, and this is where the author’s strong secondary characters come in to play.
This was a fun book to read, not a dull moment to it. This author knows how to entertain her readers while writing a solid, enjoyable story. Pick up a copy of this one for this Valentine's Day this weekend! You'll love it!
I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher for review purposes.
