Beware of Spoilers!
Heroine (Lizzie): 2/5 – I liked her focus on her career but I knew, inevitably, that she would change her future plans and bow down to the H which I am not ok with
Hero (Nic): 3/5 – he reminded me of the callous Heroes in the traditional harlequin romances but he had a soft spot for the h
Cheating: no – although the h admits to purposefully flirting with Other Man (OM) in front of OM’s wife and Nic
Average score: 2.5
Best Quote: H to h “What have you been up to lately?”
Worst Quote: h’s internal dialogue after having sex with H for the first time “She hadn’t expected her first time to be a religious experience” (there were quite a few bad ones in this book!)
Ok so this book reminded me of the harlequin romances that I did not particularly like. Essentially there was a young immature heroine (who is supposedly smart but this wasn’t shown to us) who has a crush on an older Hero (I don’t think we ever find out his age but I’m guessing mid-30s). The H proceeds to buy her stuff and the h accepts. The H and h admit they are in love. Throw in some family drama and The End. I didn’t feel that there was anything special.
I did not like the ‘bitchiness’ feel between the lead females. I am used to reading romances where the heroines tend to get on with the other heroines in a series but this is the first that I have read books where they don’t seem to like each other which leaves me feeling unsettled.
I did not like Lizzie’s relationship with Rogan. She was purposely using the relationship to toy with the feelings of Nic and Angie.
Did not like the drama between Angie and Rogan
Liked the pescetarian thing, it was different
Meh – it left me feeling under-whelmed and I am not sure if I want to read the third book in the series as I do not want to DNF it but I will give it a go
