Adam Donatello and Nina Morales share an immediate and powerful attraction, and their future together seems assured. But love is difficult enough without adding complications—real or imagined—to the mix. Nina sees life as a thousand shades of gray, while Adam tends toward black-and-white. He wants to move fast; she needs time. Nina sees her past liaisons with women as immaterial to their relationship, while her disclosure drives Adam to a state of irrational jealousy. He doesn't know how he could compete with a woman, and his suspicions—which Nina views as hypocritical—lead them both to make decisions they may live to regret.
I had never heard of the genre ChickLit and had I known this book was of that category I probably would not have read it. However, a female friend who has seen me struggle through one too many relationships suggested I read Still Counting.
It was an eye opener to see Adam making all the same mistakes in his relationship that I have been making for years. The author has captured the essence of men's insecurities about what women are really thinking.
Fortunately, this is fiction, excellent fiction actually, and Adam is able to learn his lessons in the nick of time.
This is a very interesting study of what makes relationships work and also how fragile and easily broken they can be.
