I really hated this story! First of all, it was set one year after the events of The Date. We never really got to see Samantha act in a girlfriend capacity to Max, or how their relationship evolved from best friends to relationship couple. Instead, Sammy was engagement happy, obsessing about the fact that Max had not yet proposed to her, and trying to devise ways to force the issue. Even when friends were counseling patience, Sammy was bull-headed and wanted everything her way, right now! I lost all respect for her, what little I had left after the debacle that was the Bucket List series. Trust me, this is not worth the money or time spent on it!
