Like many other reviewers (on the .com site) I was very disappointed in this book.
I enjoy Kleypas for her in depth character developement and willingness to address difficult yet common issues via her characters, both in her historical and modern books. In past books the reader is provided the opportunity to really engage with the characters and the detailed, emotional writing allows the reader to actually perceive and feel with the characters in the book.
This book provided shallow dull emotionless characters who seemed to come together in the end of the book only because it is expected in a romance book.
This felt like a re-release of a first novel attempt rather than a well written book by an experienced author.
Harsh, I acknowledge, but I don't appreciate the feeling of being taken advantage of, especialy given the premium kindle price, short length, and complete downgrade compared to the writing from other Kleypas novels. I just bought this one automatically based on previous books but won't do so again.
