I read all three books. These are not real people in any way. The relationship angst is unbelievable. There is a little outside drama/conflict, but this is mostly just a romance series. The MCs could solve world hunger and strife in the middle east, they are that perfect. I think the term is over the top.
It's not all bad; it's just fluff. I liked the books enough to read all three, but I'm very glad these are library books.
