I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
About 30 pages before the end, Alex screwed up pretty majorly, in a way that emphasized that he and Caroline don't actually know each other very well. He does a bit of groveling and basically asks for a do-over, and then we get a "one year later" epilogue in which they're very happy together. Meanwhile, I'm not sure what I just read, but I wouldn't call it a romance. This was marked as chick lit by a few users on Goodreads, but I'm not sure I'd call it that either.
Anyway, yay, I'm done with this. It won't be staying in my collection, and I don't plan on reading any of the author's other books.
