From the back cover: Jan. 12 2007
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"I'm glad we both know the score." Jay Courtland was used to playing the game of love with sophisticated women who followed the rules - no attachments, no commitments, no cheating. He was not used to the Vanessas of the world.

Yet when he mistook Vanessa for her more glamorous cousin, she reluctantly continued the deception. She was twenty-two years old, had never had a lover and knew she'd never again meet a man who made her feel the way Jay could.

So she prayed for a little beginner's luck and took the chance that Jay would eventually see her - and want her - for what she really was...and not as a poor substitute for Nadia.

CAUTION POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!!! Nov. 2 2012
By Vanessa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is no way I can believe in this HEA. It felt too much like FORSS!! And it really is a rubber necker!!

So she pretended to be her glamorous, model free-to-anyone cousin - albeit reluctantly and he paid her back for that tenfold!! When he discovered that she really was as sweet and innocent as she truly looked he tore her down to size. She runs off to Spain for a holiday and meets Roberto whom she should have taken up w/ - come on REBOUND!! I didn't think there was any chemistry b/w her and the other interested guy, but I liked Roberto. He would have been more sizzling and deserving of her, besides he helped to remake it, right? I understood why she returned and even finished her job, but there was no way in heck that she needed to cow toe to this Jack-a-Napes.

It would seem Mr. Jack-a-Napes had wanted Nadi the cousin more and of course he gets her and rubs it in Vanessa's face....repeatedly. Oh, but then he gets jealous if he thinks Vanessa is divesting herself of certain things w/ another guy. He practically forces himself on Vanessa and then tells her that she KNEW he was drunk and that is to excuse it all!

Jay really didn't like Vanessa's dishonesty. I suppose it was like offering some candy to a baby and then taking it away from him. Jay threw a temper tantrum!! But come on Jay can be accused of dishonesty as well. Hello pot! If what Jay says is true later, why were his eyes always cold when looking at Vanessa? Also if Jay knows that Vanessa is a forever kind of gal then why in the world would he think she would be giving it up to others and then since she didn't it means she only wants him - he who won't give her the HEA?

Jay wanted to make love to Nadia, the cousin, and he didn't use the other word either. All these other Hs always act like there is a difference. Then of course he wants to make love to Vanessa - so where is the difference? Sue from Spain sets up a defense for Jack-a-Napes Jay and it's reasonable to boot, but....I wished very much that Roberto was on the scene and gave jay a run for his money. He so deserved it. This deserves a rewrite!

Jay wants to know what kind of man Vanessa thinks he is and of course she is honest - the kind that makes love to one woman because she is a substitute for another. So he got to have Nadia whom he wanted all along and then marry the untried Vanessa! I wonder if he would have if he discovered she would have had someone to compare him with? Then clever Jack-a-Napes sugar coats it all w/ some ILYs and it's all done! Jay got his cake and he got to eat it too, Nadia gets to claim first rights to the hubby to be and Vanessa got stuck w/ sloppy seconds.....again!!! And the quote that sums up Vanessa's entire stand is "When was a woman in love ever wise?"
Is it really this difficult? June 14 2010
By fan111141 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The hero is much older than the heroine - she's the photographer for his football(soccer) team and yet because he comes from a difficult childhood, he has difficulty accepting love and warmth and commitment. When he realizes that she was acting as her famous cousin - Nadia - he uses that as an excuse to be exceptionally cruel and taunting.

In the end, it gets more than a little frustrating when this man-child cannot come to terms with his feelings for the heroine and the ending seems more than a little abrupt. And man, does she forgive him easily... I'm betting I wasn't the only one annoyed with the hero who just couldn't make up his mind...
