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
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
Loved it!!!!:)
This story line didn't quite come off. From the books of Portia's I've read so far this is least plausible. Don't get me wrong, it has Italian hunk and sweet heart faced girl. It has occasional erotic moments and a lot of angst that seems stilted somehow. Overplayed. .
Ends as expected...this would have been typical of a Mill's & Boon romance.
Best I can say is just 3 stars.

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.
