O.M.f'ing.G. I hated this book.

Even thought this book has a low rating on this site at the moment (2 something), I feel like I need to explain exactly what I disliked about this book.

You need to understand that Portia Da Costa is not a bad writer. At least I don't think so. She is British, I think, so that might explain for some of the awkward and wooden dialogue (Its my perception because I'm not used to the slightly different English, is what I mean). I was able to finish this book, and a lot...more
Due to often favourable reviews I have given Portia da Costa's books a try (three times as in 3 titles!): This author is not for me though. I find her books ridiculous and unbelievable (leaving many questions marks & exclamation marks!).
I don't think I have it in me to finish this one.
Judging the book by its cover has landed me in hot water this time.
Usually books I pick up from Samhain provide an entertaining read, but the whole Nick and the unrequited love thing and the callous way in which he proposes an engagement of convenience with a woman who has been in his life from her childhood though he is twelve years older than her just didn't sit well with me.
I don't know how to describe it, but something failed to grab me wit...more

Portia Da Costa's latest novel is a highly sensual romantic read. The author is best known for her erotica, but this story shows her talent with a different kind of romance. The story features a sophisticated couple who have history, family connections, and a rocky road ahead. The author's trademark humour and exceptional gift at creating erotic tension make this a delicious read.
Nice read,never read anything by this author before.The book reminded me of a Harlequin Presents novel which I enjoy reading.Only thing missing was the secret baby plot,lol.But,all in all,enjoyable.
3.5 stars would be more accurate.
More of a Mills and Boon type book.
Quite good and non taxing on the brain. Perfect Sunday afternoon read.

Even though I sort of enjoyed this book I couldn't give it a higher rating than a 2.5-3.
