4,5 stars!

The best one of the three and I loved every second of it. Carina and Max were crazy hot together and apart. Ridiculous chemistry between them. ( )

Let's start with the fact that I hadn't finished this book. I just couldn't stand it anymore.

It was so annoying. Carina keeps teasing Max, while she says that her fascination in him is over. This is completely childish.
But the part I couldn’t stand was the sex and marriage one. Max and Carina spend night together when her mother finds out about it, she FORCES Max to marriage. Come on! We’ve got 21st century. No one gets married after one night of sex! And what a mother wants her daughter to marry a man who admits that it was just a night of sex and it was not even important?
Of course, Max, who besides is really assertive and modern man, agrees that the only way to save the honor is to merry Carina. This was too much for me.

This was an easy read. Max was tormented by his attraction to his best friend's sister. She had wanted him since she was a girl. What made it good was the heat between them. I want a Max! Pure heat and power... but with a soft side. ( )

I'm slightly shallow. I'll admit it now, before you all chastise me about liking this book. :)

I didn't necessarily believe that Max suddenly developed feelings for Carina, nor was the writing particularly brilliant. But, if we ignore that, it was quite a sweet book.

I think everyone has a soft spot for unrequited love, because at some point, haven't we all been there? I think we all love the idea of someone finally receiving the love they deserve - to some extent it gives some hope.

Maggie still irritates me though. She mellowed a bit in this one, but oh my, she was so whiny! ( )
