I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
Tom and Phil were more of the same, not so interesting to be honest - they are an established couple, no clouds in the sky, all lovey-dovey. The author didn't really manage to keep the relationship story gripping - maybe that's normal? In real life well-working relationships aren't very fascinating either. But still. I long a bit for the good times with Tom and Phil before they became an established couple...sign...
The story still worked very well.
I liked it, it was enjoyable.
