I'm in the same boat. While Downey and Paltrow do have chemistry and they were indeed entertaining in the first film, here it didn't work. And the reason it didn't work was that there was no narrative to drive their scenes forward. It was as if every couple of minutes they decided they needed a Tony/Pepper scene and randomly got them together so that Pepper can be bossy and whiney a little more.
In fact, it's that same problem that sparks the SHIELD/Avengers complaints. We all know we love easter eggs. And the GA does love feeling like there's more under the surface. But with no story whatsoever (and let's face it, story was kept to a minimum with this film), it all feels like random faces talking about random stuff.
