Two different stories by two different authors - makes it hard to review the book well. The two stories feature very different characters. The first story has a much stronger female character with reason and rationale behind her decisions. She forms a relationship based on HER terms and, despite attempts, she is not bullied into a relationship. The second story is pretty much the exact opposite. The second story surrounds a character who is easily swayed and manipulated. The male love interest keeps telling her, "we MUST do this", or, "there is no other way things can be..." but the reader is never told *why*; we are left to infer it is because we have a male lead who has no self-control and cannot direct his compulsion for this particular woman. She begins the story as independent, self-possessed, and in control of her own destiny only to meet a man from her past who demands her complete supplication and receives it without much of a fight. Overall - I don't know why an editor would slap these two stories together, but one made me happy and one made me mad. ( )

Brain candy fluff for clearing my head. Easy to read. Not a lot of commitment required. ( )
