I read to 25% of the book before I put it to the side. I just couldn't like the characters enough to continue onwards. I don't like the main character because she reminds me too much of some juvenile middle schooler who has a slam book full of nasty mean stuff written in it. I just find her behavior to be really childish and ugly. The hero is a vulgar drunk; so of course they fall in lust at first sight. The other thing that bugged me was that the book has altogether a too contemporary or modern feel to it. It didn't suit my taste at all.
