Book Review: "The Total Package" by Stephanie Evanovich
This starts off showing Tyson in a really bad place. Like so bad, I started to wonder if I would even be able to like him as he was clearly the male lead here. But he does redeem himself, and I found that I did like him quite a bit. He may have toed the too-good-to-be-possible line, but I'll allow it. Dani was an interesting character too. Besides the humiliating heartbreak she suffered, she really worked hard to reach a level of success as a woman in a man's field professionally. She has an awesome family to support her, which is very important to her, but she was still somehow missing Tyson. I had a little trouble accepting that... but I can see it. She made her questionable choices, but not all the faults lie with Tyson.
The Total Package is really that. You've got two great main characters who are trying to be better and do right by the other. There is heartbreak and humor throughout. Sexy-times and touching moments as well. It was a nice light read for me while still keeping me invested in the story right through the very satisfying conclusion. I recommend this to all contemporary romance fans!
My sincere thanks to TLC Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book!
