I’m a hopeless romantic who believes in soulmates so I’m glad everyone finds there match and each couple is left with hope for reconciliation at the end.
Even though I enjoyed the predictable storyline, the writing was just boring. It quite literally put me to sleep every night, which isn’t a bad thing because I suffer from insomnia. I would like to see this story brought to life on screen by Shondra Rhimes.
