I hated Izzy from the start!

I loved this story so much, I couldn't stand Izzy the main lady, from the start she in my opinion (I'm sure others viewed her differently) was ditsy well past the point of annoying, very naive, selfish and managed to get her self caught in unbelievable situations all due to her being unbelievably wrapped up in her self. all this actually made me love the story ,I felt sorry for everyone who had to put up with her lol.
