Harlequin Presents meets chicklit. Ugh! Shame on you, Harlequin. ( )
  thebookbabe | Mar 4, 2010 |
I've just finished this and I'm not sure what I really think of it. It's left me with an odd sort of taste in my mouth and I'm trying to pinpoint why that is. It wasn't badly written, but there was just something off about it. I didn't feel very connected with the characters at all and found myself distracted by outside things while reading - kids programming on the tv, washing a few pots and pans, the laundry needed doing, etc. Whenever I thought the hero or heroine would go one way, they went the other. I couldn't get any clear insight into their motivations. Their decisions and actions contradicted each other so much it left me spinning. I also didn't feel that their romantic feelings had any sort of genuineness to them. The romance seemed more manufactured to me, a means to end the novel happily. For a Harlequin, this is a pretty racy one, but in a much too subtle, hint-hint-wink-wink way. There is some very, very light bondage play, spanking, nipple clamps (this is alluded to, but not shown), and some semi-public sex. None of these things really adds to the story for me, though, because everything is so white-washed it takes the sexiness right out of it. Had the author been free to be more explicit, I feel this would have made a decent erotic novel, with or without the romance.So, two stars from me.http://iheartpaperbacks.com ( )
