A pretty good romance from a new author. It took a while for the heroine to grow on me because I did not like her at all in the beginning. I did like the hero’s grovel action but did become disappointed in some of his behaviour.
- Just as I was starting to like the heroine she goes and makes a shallow and bitchy comment
- And then she goes and steals from her brother….after breaking into his home
- The blurb was misleading as I read it believing it stated that Liam randomly won the prize of having Freya as a maid when in fact he was the one who initiated it and suggested that she should be a prize in the first place. Here’s a bit of the blurb:
“That is, until a drunken night gets out of hand and he finds himself with the winning hand in a poker game, and the prize is a feisty redhead.”
- It was harsh that the adoption didn’t go through
- Davis was a sweetie
- I was grateful that the author didn’t subject me to the typical visions of a rockstar manwhore
- The articles were repetitive and annoying
- I’m pleased they waited to have sex
- I seriously don’t get why authors do an epilogue in the future without showing any actual progress like having kids or getting married. It’s a waste, in my opinion, to have the story ending with a proposal or a pregnancy. It is like setting up a joke but then not finishing it…I NEED CLOSURE!!
