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.

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

HASH(0x9963ae94) out of 5 stars A really silly book that is not worth your time. April 13 2015
By Pam K - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've read several Delinsky books and this one is the worst by far. Apparently this book was written early in her career--maybe high school?--and I mean that seriously. It's like the later Delinksy books are written by a totally different person. The hero has no redeeming qualities except that he's handsome. The heroine, who purportedly is a strong, independent and successful attorney, is reduced to mush with just one glance and kiss. She literally can't work, etc., for daydreaming about this jerk who gives no indication that he feels anything for her other than lust. The author goes on....and on....and on about the heroine's feelings about a kiss. It's a silly story with a clunky "thriller" bit thrown in in the last quarter of the book. Do not buy this Delinsky book--go to her later books which are far, far better and more enjoyable and definitely worth the effort. Tip to long time Delinsky readers who have commented--if you can't give a serious and fair critique about this book, then please don't comment at all.

HASH(0x9963ad8c) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0x9963af78) out of 5 stars Shallow read March 17 2014
By gma5 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
From the title - Sensuous Burgandy - to the plot, the book was simply an excuse for much breast-beating, sighing and lusting. Should have checked the copyright date before purchasing; it's vintage Delinsky, not one of her newer, meatier novels. No real plot to this book. And what a stretch the title is - not even a visit to the manicurist was involved : ) Not even worth the low price I paid for it.
