My initial thought is that the characters conversation seems stiff or mechanical. Even their thoughts seem to lack a certain flow. It’s just WEIRD.

An example was the first chapter; the author didn’t allow you the opportunity to get to know the characters. (Granted I know it’s a romance novel however if you can descriptive details about the home, the kid, the brothers etc, then you should be able to cut back on those descriptive details and give me more character development so that I can relate.
I got tired of the "passionate" kisses and wanted them to just get down to it. And please tell me what is sexy about a man saying to open your mouth so they can kiss you. NOT SEX
Like the first story, Once in a Lifetime, the dialogue is kinda stiff and it's hard to understand what they're saying. The first story I think was a little better as far as dialogue, but this one had the potential to be a great story, but the way they talk to each other is very weird, and it leaves you unable to connect with the characters. It's unrealistic. Also there were too many dressy words. I kept having to use the dictionary, seriously. Example "I have to go straight to my brothers, and t ...more
A good story of a woman who's self esteem about her weight holds her back from the man she wants. She learns to believe in him.
I love the harrington brothers!
can't wait to read Drake's story next..
Love... Can never go wrong with a good romance!
For its contents the book is too long. Would be much better if it was condensed to makebe 150-200 pages.
