Primero de todo, para ser Deseo es muy flojita.
Los primeros capítulos fueron más de lo mismo, pero una vez que Anne Oliver te da el perfil de los protas, cambió bastante. Ella es una pobre alma trabajadora que ha tenido relaciones humanas desastrosas y a la cual todos defraudaron (?) y él es un arquitecto playboy con una niñez triste. Hasta aquí, me gustó mucho que la protagonista tuviera una vida, corriera y, principalmente, se esforzara por ser independiente (creo que todo personaje que lo ha
This book is classic Harlequin Presents. It's a good story told succinctly, but it's riddled with the clichés that make romance what it is. Ellie has impossibly colored eyes (violet) and an unconventional job (she's a landscaper). She's got big boobs and a tiny waist and she's totally not Matt's type, but he wants her anyway. There are family secrets and misunderstandings out the whazoo, but if this type of story didn't sell, Harlequin wouldn't keep buying them.

It's a good story with solid chara

Matt is a typical playboy. Hurt by his past he won't commit. Until he meets Ellie, what starts out as a temporary fling. Becomes much more.
As Matt realises he is getting in too deep, he decides now is the time to run. Mean while Ellie has given up hope. And is trying to prepare herself for when he departs.

He was surprisingly tame. Okay. Good book. Nice characters but not that well defined in my mind. You kinda know there's some sort of familial connection between Ellie and Belle; so, it comes as no suprise in the end.

I love flowers and enjoyed looking up some of the varieties mentioned in the book.
