This book was not without its faults but I found the problems easy to forgive. I thought this was one of the best romance books I have ever read and definitely the best SEP novel. I highly recommend it.
I had this book for a long time until I got around to reading it. This was a good thing because by now Iï¿½ve forgotten what I paid for it so, Iï¿½m not sure how much of a waste of money it was.
Isabelï¿½s negative traits: self righteous, controlling, arrogant, obsessive, superior, annoying, boring, judgmental, prissy. Those are just the ones I can think of offhand.
Her positive traits: OK, let me think a minute, I'm sure there's something. She seemed to like kids?
Her fiancÃ© left her after falling in love with a frumpy older woman whom he had gotten pregnant. Her accountant ran off with her money. Her career tanked. But that didnï¿½t stop her from assuming she knew what was best for everyone else and telling them about it! Sheï¿½s definitely not in a position to give advice! Heal Thyself.
Ren was a likeable enough guy, nowhere near the ï¿½bad boyï¿½ the media would have you think. He was however either stupid or masochistic or both to get involved with Isabel. What could a man like Ren possibly see in this woman? Or really any man for Peteï¿½s sake. And how could she appeal to a man after she dictated her list of ï¿½rulesï¿½ for them having sex? ï¿½Canï¿½t do this, canï¿½t do that, Iï¿½m in charge, I call the shots.ï¿½ Can you say "kill the mood"?
And what was with the last couple of chapters? For awhile there I thought Iï¿½d dozed off and woke up in another book! Castle ruins, lightning, goddess (yeah right), statues (cue dramatic music)!
This definitely goes into the ï¿½giveawayï¿½ pile! Although I'm not sure if there's anyone I dislike enough to give it to.
I can highly recommend Ms. Phillip's "Kiss An Angel" which is one of my favorite books. Also "It Had To Be You".
Unfortunately, this book didn't sit that way. While it is a decent read, you just don't ever fully identify with either of the protagonists and that makes the book fall flat - for an SEP book. I never fell in love with Ren and while the book was worth finishing there were never the same fireworks there were before. Also, SEP is starting to lean towards kinky sex...something just a little too contrived if the main characters are "in love." Kinky role playing is best left for folks who have been married several years and need to spice things up a bit instead of doing the same old, same old, IMO.
If you want a good book, read this. If you want a FABULOUS book, read any of the other SEP novels out there.

I just finished reading "Breathing Room" for the second time. Nearly all of SEP's books are on my keeper shelf and are dog-eared from re-reads. Read morePublished on Jan. 17 2004 by Margaret G.
