This was Disappointing. I'm still wondering why I finished it. Maybe I thought it might get better. It didn't. This definitely does not go on my keeper shelf.
Note: Stands alone read.
EASY READ. Angst-filled storyline, strong family theme, a good secondary cast including a wonderfully smug, vile, snake of an ex-lover and his obnoxious ex-wife. HOWEVER, the outdated sexual attitudes have not aged well and neither the hero or heroine are particularly admirable. The hero is controlling and ignores the heroine's sexual feelings, which isn't the least bit romantic. And despite believing she is in love with the hero, she is so weak-willed she gives in to her former married lover's obvious manipulations and hides her involvement from the hero. This behavior is both offensive and annoying, and you just want to slap her.
THE STORY revolves around assistant hotel manager, Amanda Scott, and wealthy investment broker, Jordan Richards. They meet at a self-help book signing/seminar. Amanda confesses to the recent shock of finding out her lover is a married man, and Jordan is still trying to recover from the devastating loss of his wife years earlier. The instant attraction leads to lust-driven encounters until her former married lover shows up with his ex-wife in tow and manipulates her into reentering his life. She conceals the relationship from Jordan, which is of course a terrible mistake. But everything turns out peachy in the end.
OVERALL, the characters are annoying and the story just drags in places making it painful to get through. SKIP IT! There are much better books out there.
You may also enjoy the complex characters and storytelling of N. Bruhns, A. Stuart, E. Palfrey, R. C. Ryan, or L. Wilde. For sweet, funny, heart touching romances with great descriptive imagery, try Susan Fox and Cara Colter.
