The book was ok. A bit slow at times and the ending was nice but it was too tepid for me. I suppose I have complained before about the too douche-y H but this guys he's almost a background piece in this book.
I like a man who knows what he wants and sets about getting it with patience and seduction and not the typical "I'm going to pull on your hair until you notice me" attitude that these harlequin candy romance contain. And it's an added bonus that the h knows the words I don't think so!
That was a really hard book to finish. The husband was so cruel throughout the book. My husband and I have argued but never has he called me a whore just because that's a word I would know. The wife was the biggest doormat in the world which didn't help curb his cruelty towards her. The handful of books that have rich Sicilian men as the heroes always seem to think they have the right to be mean, without a hint of softness in them until literally the epilogue.
All right! A very quick and sweet read! A hero who actually stopped and thought about things. It was actually pretty cute when he started worry about her reactions. Though I thought she said rather quickly. Oh well. Still a very enjoyable read.
Jerky hero? Check. Doormat wife. Check. Ok. I get it. She had a child and didn't tell him. But why in gods name did she think it was cool to marry him and then think it was ok to say surprise! I had your child month ago. But his response of I'll kidnap him and his passport was a bit hard to swallow. Especially when she actually says yeah you're right I'm a dodo head too. What am I reading???
Reading these books are akin to eating m & m's. Lots of different colours but the same chocolate in the inside. The hero wasn't a COMPLETE jackass and the heroine was only slightly trampled on instead of the usual skin flaying some of these authors like to write about.
