This is not the worst JL I have ever read but it is definitely not the best either. While I wasn't tempted to throw it away like I was with "A Pirate's Love", it didn't catch me either. Usually I read her books in two or maximum three days - depending on the w/end. This one I finished in more than a week.
The characters are very simplistic and flat: she is the beautiful poor girl which has struggled with difficulties in childhood and now suddenly finds herself wealthy; he is the good-looking young man with no other care in the world either than the jealousy he feels because of her. What you see in them at first glance is all there is to them. There is no character development and also there are no reasons they fall in love with each other except that she had a childhood crash on him and he finds her very beautiful.
The conflict is very twisted and confusing, with illogical ups and downs. There are also a lot of side characters which crowd the picture. One I found especially annoying was Billy Anderson, a young man who is obsessed with the heroine and wants to have her at any means, and so follows her around more or less for ten or more years. This I found very unbelievable and quite stupid.
Also, the love scenes are cold; Ms. Lindsey can write love scenes which make you shiver and tingle, but none of those are in this book.
So, nothing remarkable or special about this book. Just plain.
