I'm sorry but I'm a little upset with this book. I liked the story and was waiting for the reveal of the elusive misunderstanding. (last few pages)

Sweet like shuga. Plot is predictable BUT James won my heart. He was so persistant in his endeavor to win Samantha back it was great. I would say the kissing scenes were hotter than the sex, but i guess the sex wasn't in a lot of detail.

I really like it, and hope to read more by this author.

Here is another story that all is not what it seems. This is a story of even the "picture" is not always the truth (way to pap's). This is a lovely story of true love and even though time apart still feel the love. Enjoy this story I did.

Good plot,I really enjoyed this book.Just goes to show you how misunderstandings can mess everything up therefore once in awhile we should always give a person a listening ear.Though Samantha would piss me off sometimes,I mean,why would you not want to know?Why fight so hard to deny your feelings ,yet you feel so much?James tried so hard yet all his efforts just seemed futile.I like how relentless he was though.
Anyway all in a good story.

Very enjoyable read. Determined to hold onto the pain of the past Samantha wont even allow James to explain. It's hard to endure the struggles that these two characters have to go through. With a little help from his well meaning mother things are forced out into the open.

All in all a good romance book. A bit predictable at times and a few secondary issues were left unsolved, which irked me a bit and, therefore I gave it 3 out of 5 stars, but an enjoyable read nonetheless.

It was a great book overall, however I got annoyed a few times while reading due to a certain female character! I didn't really like how the novel was ended so much.
