Wake Me When It's Over by Robison Wells

I've been meaning to read Robison Wells' book, Wake Me When It's Over, for a long time now. I think it's been sitting on my shelf for over a year. Don't know why.

While on his mission, Elder Eric Hopkins finds an attache case containing a necklace and a ring. Finders, keepers, he brings them home with him.

While attending BYU, Eric meets Rebekah Hughes, gifted violinist, and it's a crush at first sight—for him, anyway. He asks her out on a bet and they become friends. When she tells him she has a Christmas gift for him, he scrambles to find one for her and gives her the necklace he found on his mission.

She's wearing this necklace during a nationally televised Christmas concert. At the end of the concert, Rebekah is kidnapped. Eric is seriously hurt trying to rescue her. Over the next few days, Eric and Rebekah escape, are re-kidnapped, and escape again as they try to figure out why the thugs want them, what it has to do with her necklace, and how her father is involved.

This book has a few technical errors in grammar and structure, but I really liked it. It's hilariously funny in places and I loved reading a "romance" from the guys point of view. Eric is so hopelessly clueless when it comes to girls that I laughed out loud in a few places.

Looking forward to reading it's sequel: The Counterfeit.
