Truly - Ruthie Knox

I really love Ruthie Knox's stories. They're smart, well-written, and generally have well-developed characters. For me, her novels are like a chick-flick, in that I know there will be a happy resolution, but I still find myself getting caught up in the meet-cute, angst/UST-development, and angst/UST-resolution. And Truly doesn't disappoint. May and Ben are engaging, with snappy dialogue and build an interesting relationship as they solve their own personal issues. Overall, it's a fun "fluff-with-substance" read, and was the perfect anecdote between some heavier fare I was reading in December. It was also nice that it wasn't just novella length, but a fully-fleshed out story rather than a quick "half hour sitcom" read.
