This one is not up to modern standards. The misogyny is thick enough to cut with a knife and the sex questionably consensual. ( )

Even though I expected a romance in the 80s style, the plot and characters were just horrible. Linc's behavior towards Holly/Shannon is plain disgusting. Her reaction to him is extremely stupid and unrealistic. Which man wouldn't recognize a person anymore just because she wears make-up one day and not the next? He wants to marry her but admits not to love her? How does that make sense? ( )

Honestly, I can handle mediocre writing for the sake of a warm and fuzzy romance novel but this was awful. I absolutely can't stand Linc (the lead male character). How anyone could see past his absolute hatred of women to view this as a functional relationship is beyond me. ( )
