My problem with it is the hero, if that is a term that could be used.
Forget the tropes of the poor pitiful virgin, fleeing from her evil background, she seems stupid but is actually Idiot savantly talented, OTT makeover that drives H wild, etc These tropes all pale in significance to the fact that the H would rather listen to his his evil bitch ex than the woman he unknowingly loves He reject the abandoned heroine when she arrives at his engagement party to the evil ex and only takes her on when she admits she is there because she s pregnant After a happy interlude, he rejects her again, humiliates and debases her in front of a 12 26 18 2nd readJust re read this and I have to admit, it wasn t as good on second read I really wish he had been a better man and not judge her so much I know he did that epic grovel at the end but the whole Olivia thing and the things he said at the party, just not nice Sorry I re read it I still love the h She was so wonderful.
2 18 18 1st ReadI loved this book I liked the heroine so much I love when a heroine loves so much and is so selfless I know I am a dissenting opinion there but I just loved how her love made him a better man I liked her personality and I actually gave it a five star even though the H and his ex biatch were so horrid to her at the 2nd party There were a couple of parts that just made me cry She loved him so much and I liked that she didn t ever waver She was even strong enough to walk away and I loved that about her I want to find the other stories Why can t they do believable covers The female model on the cover looks just that tall leggy model and certainly not a little mouse sex kitten etc Or maybe the guy isn t as tall or broad shouldered as he s supposed to be Personally I still prefer and drool over the illustrations of the HPs of yore They knew how to make all your fantasies come true Anyhow the h is really quite sweet and open hearted My friend Debbie has that right You can t but adore her for loving so openly and selflessly And yes, she has a personality and I liked her dignity at the walkout But she could have confessed a lot sooner and those but I thought you knew or I ll tell him soon excuses only work or rather don t work in HPs He s a true tstl H with zero judgment No wonder he was losing contracts left, right and center I won t rate him the c This was not my favorite book by this author, his behaviour with the heroine was despicable, he found her crying in the office, took her on a date to make the heroine s cheating boyfriend jealous, took her innocence and then ignored her as he said he would, fired her and found her a job somewhere else and when she told him she was pregnant married her, told her she couldn t follow her dream of a jewellery business, never helped her out with his friends and instead tried to mold her into something else and then publicly humiliated her, calling her a cheat and questioned the paternity of their child I found that unforgivable, so what that she didn t tell him that her father was wealthy, she should have but he should have respected her enough to talk in private.
Of course he makes a grand gesture to make up for it but in my book t
