Warwick is a 40 year old British gazillionaire who likes to risk his life doing extreme sports and is a notorious womanizer. Just like his daddy. He's never had a girlfriend last 12 months and he doesnt do marriage or kids, as he tells Australian girl Amber when he asks her to move in with him.

Ten months later, Amber is feeling the death throes of their relationship. Warwick has been neglecting her and is every bit The Bad Boyfriend.

What she doesnt know is that Warwick has been feeling guilty ab

Time flew by while I read this! Despite lacking the high drama, angst and passion that is inherent to the Harlequin Presents line, I still felt the struggles both Amber and Warwick underwent, and definitely believed in their love for each other by the story's end.

What I liked about Amber was how her love for Warwick didn't completely enslave her to him. What I didn't care for as much was her last-minute plan to keep a memento of their relationship. I understood her motivation even if I did thin

The HP mistress theme can be really hit and miss and in this case I think the angst or misery, of this type of relationship far outwieghted any underpinnings of romance the book tried to portray.

This was an ok read. I liked the book ok but I really couldn't get into the characters so much. I understood and got them, but I really couldn't connect or get with them. (I guess that's how I'd say that) This was written well and it had a lot of emotions, stubbornness, a little self-growth, and a good ending. Not something I would read again but it was good for passing time or just for something to read. Good Luck

Good, but not a favorite. I enjoyed revisiting old characters, but wanted more.

I am also quickly getting tired of the man who uses "illness" as an excuse for everything. I love an ultra alpha man in an HP (as opposed to reality) but this one just didn't quite do it.

If you like HP's it's still a good read.

No únicamente se trata de como Warwick le huye al matrimonio si no las razones que lo hacen huir de una relación seria y es debido a creer heredar una condición que a los hombres de su familia les causa demencia.

Pero por mas que huye del amor no puede evitar enamorarse de Amber que la atracción fue instantánea.Para adelantar sin dar mucho "spoiler" les cuento que como una nota bien diferente Amber estaba comprometida con otro novio para casarse.Pero al darse cuenta que deseaba a Warwick dejo al

Meh. Didn't like this one much. The hero is far too Ultra-Alpha for my taste, and the heroine has less spine than a mackerel fillet. He treats her so incredibly badly and with so little respect at the beginning of the book, and refuses to accept it when she ends the relationship, saying something like 'It's not over until I say so, madam'.

I get that he's Alpha, and that sometimes they don't take no for an answer, but we are usually fairly convinced that the heroine wants him to fight her. In th

I can't believe I actually bought this book. The female lead was simply too attached to that controlling bastard! I've read books that had men who were a thousand times more controlling but at least the female leads had played a strong roll--which could make you forgive their controlling attitude, however in this novel the female lead didn't have a very strong role at all. I am very disappointed in this book because from the summary, I thought the book would be great.

I loved Warwick and Ambers story. Amber leaves her life behind for a man that Gentiles so much passion in her. Warwick does not do long term usually with in a year her as a new mistress and new residence. He is trying to distance himself from Amber but finds it extremely hard unlike the others. I love the development of the story it was well paced. She kind off gave away the ending early but I had predicted it earlier anyway. I love epilogues and she has a mastery of them.

I was so happy to read about Tara and Max from The Magnate's Mistress , which is one of my fav Miranda Lee's books- I had no idea that they will be part of the story, not a huge part but still it was fun reading about them and their kids.

Warwick and Amber love story was nice but not the best I read from Miranda Lee but still it was a nice quick read.

In my opinion the book is good to pass the time when you're bored. It has a story ehich is not really interesting. Characters without a real backstory and it has some mistakes. A little sex in there but all in all it's not the book to read if you want a thrilling story that won't let you put the book aside...

A good read. Never understood why people just don't go to a specialist and get confirmation that they have an illness and will die? They just believe what they are told.....what's with that? Not a healthy or realistic approach to life.

Nice location - but I found the hero a bit of a bully at times and the heroine's plan to trick him into making her pregnant a little creepy. Not least the genetic problem potentially faced by the hero is glibly tied up at the end.

Hero and heroine get together, hero starts being an ass to heroine. Heroine finds out that hero doesn't want to leave her, he is in love with her but he can't give her a baby due to him having a vasectomy. Heroine and hero have baby, miraculously and live HEA.

I'm sorry, but I couldn't finish it. The characters are not likable and they make decisions out of the blue that make it impossible to enjoy the story. I read 48% and just couldn't read this any longer.

Its been a long time since I read a Mills & Boon book where I didn't predict the ending, yes I knew they were going to end up together because well its a Mills and Boon book but I didn't know how that was going to happen...This would probably be the last one. So I deffinitely recommend.

Different from the atypical HP, except the hero being an arrogant so and so. Refreshing change of pace so to speak but worked toward a REALLY quick HEA>
