Wasn T All That 
t all that was Colloquial Polish: The Complete Course for Beginners expecting I liked the Jewish aspects of the story most of all I liked the signs of the characters religious observances like the male MC s tzitzit and kippah and the little ways that their Judaism affected their life However I struggled with the characters themselves Both seemed a bit fickle and immature both toying with one another and going back and forth with theirmotions I had a hard time getting behind them both individually and as a couple But an ven bigger issue was the pacing It took Me Absolutely Ages To absolutely ages to the story and I found it to be very slow and hard to get through After two weeks of forcing myself to read I had to skim a bit in order to finish Maybe it s the fact that I don t really read any American romance or maybe it s that this was my first xperience with this author but the book didn t uite measure up Too bad since the world needs Jewish romance goodreads instagram twitter blog Felicia Grossma.
