Format: Mass Market Paperback
Normally I enjoy Delinsky's books a great deal, but this book was a very big disappointment for me. It's hardly surprising, really, since this was one of her very early books, and not only has her writing matured since then, but the style of romantic writing has changed as well.
Laura, the "heroine," is an assistant district attorney, and she comes up against Max, the "hero," in the courtroom. It's pretty much lust at first sight for her -- she's very shaken by their first meeting -- and it seems he's similar affected, since he starts immediately pursuing her despite the ethical problems of their being opposing councils in a murder case.
Both Max and Laura are shallow characters, and Laura, despite being a "career woman," is irritatingly weak. She allows Max to completely dominate her life, once they're together, and pretty much completely falls apart when the course of the relationship doesn't run smoothly. On top of that, I failed to understand what she saw in Max, other than looks. And I didn't understand exactly what Max saw in Laura, either.
I'd advise skipping this one, and looking into Delinsky's later work instead. She really has matured into a marvelous writer, but this isn't the book to read unless you're a hard-core fan who wants to sample absolutely all of Delinsky's work.

Sexual attraction, sexual tension, sexual consummation - Ugg March 3 2014
By Sue Averett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I used to read Barbara Delinsky and loved her books. Unfortunately she has gone the way of other modern writers. I don't understand how she can make a strong woman lawyer into a simpering lovestruck dummy who just takes the abuse from a man that is so handsome she turns to jelly just seeing him. Nothing happens in this book except the sexual attraction stuff. There isn't any story and no issues are resolved to any conclusion. Don't read this unless you are on a deserted island with nothing but this book. Sorry Barbara. Cut the bad writing, give us an interesting story, not that I will ever read you again.

The title says it all.
I didn't finish it -- the story lacks substance.
Waste of reading time.
Find no further words.
