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...)
But it worked (though I have to confess that I skimmed over them a bit in the end...).
Because it had a likable first person POV and a hot guy to fall for. The development and the tension and chemistry was very engaging.
It did have some rather obvious plot turns, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
I liked the banter - good dialogues right there.
