Romance - not my usual subject, but as always, I am prepared to read outside of my boundaries. It made a v. nice communter read, easy to get into the story. The only thing which always disturbs me about romance novels is what most people like and expect of them: the happy ending. The couple always gets each other at the end... so boring, so predictable.
