I let the good reviews sway me into buying this book, although Miranda Lee is not one of my favorite HP writers. So I felt compelled to write this review after reading the book to warn off others. This is a poorly written story with an unbelievable plot line and akward, melodramatic dialogue. Neither the heroine nor the hero are likeable, believable characters and the jump they make from hate to love is ridiculous. This book does not engage the reader on an emotional or intellectual level. Frankly, there is nothing at all engaging about it even if you're only expecting a fast, light read.
