This is the story of a great, hulking blond brute of a hero and the beautiful and irrational harpy who loves him. The hero, Brent, is a douchebag and the heroine, Summer, is the female equivalent of one. A classic 80s "rapemance" filled with all the cliches and so gloriously ridiculous.

I was entertained from the first page to the very last. There are some amazing scenes that had me chortling with glee. One in particular has a shrieking nursemaid running around through a burning nursery in a tota
this started out great, had a "what the hell was this?" middle, and a "barely kept me interested" ending.
plus, what year was this? the language was so modern. also, the lovemaking was a little too prosy for me..just a huge paragraph of metaphors. hum.
all that said, it wasn't a bad book. something kept me going!
