Don’t want to miss a thing is a chick-lit book written by Jill Mansell. I was browsing through the shelves of Crossword, and I found this book. It’s not like the cover attracted me, or anything of that sort. But I hadn’t read chick-lit in a while, and I though I’d pick it up. I also bought 3 other books, reviews coming up soon.
So ? What’s the story ? It’s not too original. The dude is called Dexter Yates. He’s the typical British rich boy, with the babes and the booze and the canary yellow Porsche. (which I adore, btw.) He also, somehow seems to have impeccable manners.
He shifts to Briarwood, when he decides to take care of Delphi, his niece when his sister dies. Along with the help of his ultra-nice neighbor, Molly.
What follows is a fairly predictable tale of how they struggle and enjoy raising baby Delphi, and eventually have to deal with the attraction they feel for each other.
Yet, even though it’s a simple, cliche story, I loved reading it for it’s simple storyline, lovely characters. All in all, a lovely afternoon read.
