Kerry had betrayed his trust

I ended up giving this five stars because there was such a WOW factor on the reveal at the end. I did a complete 180 on Alex. He was giving me a serious a-hole factor for a lot of this book, and by the end, I really 'got' him, and I just wanted to hug him.

I guess because I am getting older, I am less enchanted (if I ever was) with the dewy, very young heroine. I started out sort of rolling my eyes (in a "Yes, I'm a fan of this author although I'm not feeling this plot element" fashion) at Kerry

This is one of those classic HP angsty reads...that you just can't put down till you finish it. If that's your cup of tea, then you need to read this book. Kerry and Alex were married...she was a very young teenager and he was a mature jaded man. Throw in a jealous sister who purposely manipulates them and you have one very powerful novel.

Alex was just one cruel unbelievable bas@#$% who ruthlessly tosses her out of his life when he finds her in bed with another man. Fast forward a few years, an
Very strong story by LG. It had quite a few different elements and the story all hung together very well, so good plotting. I particularly enjoyed how angsty the heroine was when she thought she had done the bad thing and how realistically she perked up when she found out the truth. I had fun reading about the cold hero who had thrown her out without a hearing 4 years before. I loved to see him come to terms with his feelings for her.

I continue to be a fan of LG.

Finally got back on the horse again with a Lynne Graham book I read many years ago. This book is exactly why I've been such a fan of Lynne Graham's book for so many years and why I was so disappointed with her duets books where the hero is physically unfaithful to the heroine.
Alex married Kerry when she was only 18. He had fought against his attraction to her because he knew she was very young. So in one way he wasn't surprised when she went of the rails while visiting her model sister and was f
Don't let my meh rating for this deter you from reading what you might find a really enjoyable book. I felt a little guilty putting on a 3 star rating because my lack of thorough enjoyment had to do with my frame of mind while reading it. I was just so irascible I hated how everything dragged on, and while it was well written, I still couldn't stomach that she just wouldn't tell Alex the truth. Even if he won't believe you (which I think he would have eventually) say the God-damned words. It wou ...more

I couldn't believe how easily they were both manipulated by the step sister. She was way too young at the time, fresh out of school, but I expected more from Alex. He was jaded and he allowed his insecurities to fog his brain. I thought they forgave the step sister way too easily.

'When I saw you in that hospital, I knew it wasn't over. I looked at you,' he cited in a husky, accented growl. 'And I knew I had to have you again. You're in my blood like a fever and I'm in yours.'

Too much feels! This is one of the best Lynne Graham books that I've ever read. Hero was your typical alpha but you'll surely love him in the end!

This book was a hard read it was like reading The Unwanted Wife but minus the passion I don't know if you can say this book is adult. I mean it was like watching a film with your family and when a sex scene came up the parents would fast forward and say they had sex. I know it sounds weird that I'm complaining about that . You may even the girl looking for smut . But no that is not the case I have read clean romance books before. Its just it never sat well the author showed deeply passionate rel ...more
I do like the older Lynne Graham's much better than the newer ones. The H in this one was typically arrogant and controlling, but not a bad guy. I enjoyed watching him seethe in frustration when his schemes didn't go as smoothly as he'd planned.


The H believed the heroine had gotten drunk and slept with another man at a party while she was pregnant with his child. He was furious, so he refused to ever see or speak to her again. Although, they did communicate through lawyers and he

I would give this 4 stars for the Hero alone. but bcoz i damn well hate the heroine, i reduced the stars to just 1. yes! ladies n gentleman, i freaking hate the heroine. and not bcoz she is a doormate, nope! she's not, that's not even her role in this book. she's no where near a doormat but i freaking hate her bcoz of her wrecking brain.

bcoz im a girl, i'll reversed the condition in this book into my perspective, so, this book was basically like a 30 y.0 something women, get married to a justin
A most enjoyable read with a lot of angst. Knowing where the H is coming from, I quite adore him especially when he laid his heart out finally at the end. The h is strong and did put up quite a fight, which is a lot more entertaining than tstl doormat. I especially like the fact that the H does back off on using sex to overwhelm the h in the middle, giving me a good feeling and proving his claim that he really loves her a lor and would have wanted to be with her even without sex. The big misunde ...more

I loved The Veranchetti Marriage by Lynne Graham and I can see why this was reissued not once but twice! Its a classic Lynne Graham with all the angst,intensity and a story that keeps you hooked throughout.

Alex is a a typical alpha hero but I loved him to my surprise. I thought I was not going to like him because of the way he left Kerry and the typical alpha characteristics he had (too much jealousy, not listening etc ). As the chapters progressed I disliked him more but the last chapters compl

I don't usually read books about divorced or estranged couples. It's not really my cup of tea. But there's something about the blurb that caught my attention or maybe because Lynne Graham is a favorite mine. For whatever the reason, I'm glad I've read it.

It's been four years since Kerry's husband Alex divorced her after believing that she slept with other man whilst pregnant with his baby. She begged him to listen to her but he refused to see or speak to her. For four years, they only communicat

An excellent read.....packs a powerful punch!

4 years before Alex finds his naked wife in bed with another man and is burning mad and so very hurt. He runs away and doesn't listen to a word she has to say.....and divorces her.

Really kind of pisses you off - him not talking to her for 4 years...but then he is a super sexy alpha male so he is always right? Men! Kerry has tried to move on with her life and has devoted herself to her adorable son and her job. Until Alex storms back into her life and

I liked that the hero went through hell and groveled when he found out how wrong he was about the heroine. And the fact that he was celibate during their separation.

Very emotional and full of angst! Alex's pain broke my heart but I think the heroine was a self-centered bitch and she kind of ruined the book for me.

I would love half stars on here. I have to say this was an infuriating book. I guess that is the mark of a great author, if the characters' behavior makes you want to throw the book because they are written so well that they annoy you.

I do not like the heroine

Why can't she be someone with some wisdom....after 6 years??!!
I miss the last chapter, where I get to know if she had a boy or girl.
Thank God there was a happy ending!

Not my favorite from Lynne Graham

Subject line was hard to follow at times,
Violent moments... turn around at the end was to quick....epilogue at the end would have been advised
