Is something always better than nothing?
Ben Messina is a certified maths genius and romance sceptic. He and Trix met at university and have been quarreling and quibbling ever since, not least because of Ben’s decision to abandon their relationship in favour of … more maths! Can Trix forget past hurt and help Ben see a life beyond numbers, or is their long history in danger of ending in nothing?
Charming and sensitive, Claudio Messina, is as different from his brother as it is possible to be and Trix’s best friend, Henrietta, cannot believe her luck when the Italian model of her dreams chooses her. But will Claudio and Henrietta’s pursuit for perfection end in a disaster that will see both of them starting from zero once again?
This was a re-telling of Much ado about nothing (I like that Branagh movie version btw.)
Trix, has sworn off men. They just break your heart. You can have a lot of fun without them.
Ben is the math loving genius who broke her heart. Idiots! You are perfect for each other!
If you know the story, then you know their friends will use trickery to get these two to see the light.
Then there is lovely Henrietta who falls for Claudio. I did like how these two were portrayed. He was handsome, but did he think of others? She had some obsessions of her own. You will see.
A nice re-telling. The story is there, but in a modern setting. There characters have their quirks, and a few flashbacks made me see why.
Amusing with a dash of romance.
