4 Stars! ~ I'm amazed that I'd forgotten how much I've always enjoyed Helen Brooks' books. With my last few reads, I've reaquainted myself with her lovestories and I'm thoroughly enjoying them. In this book, our Ria is mistaken for her impulsive and often thoughtless cousin, Poppy, by a very forceful and charismatic Greek. Dimitrios takes out all his anger and frustration out on Ria while he believes she is her immoral selfish cousin. While he believes she is Poppy, he treats Ria harshly and fi ...more

Ez is egy részemről újraolvasott füzetecske, mert tetszett a történet. Kicsit hasonlít a Kusza viszonyokra, bár annyira nem jó, mint az volt, mindenesetre a kategóriáján belül így is megérdemel 5 csillagot tőlem. :)

I can't believe I am giving a book written by Helen Brooks a one star, but there were several things I just could not get past. I have also decided that unless it is a recent book by HB, I will not read it.

First and foremost, this book was about abuse, not romance. The hero physically hit, pinched, gripped, shook, and called the heroine all kinds of nasty names.

Secondly, our heroine was one big water pot, who cried on every other page. I am not exaggerating. Of course most of the time her cryin

Emotionally packed!!!! I cried!
I hated this book. The male lead was a cruel, abusive jerk and the female lead was spineless. How can you fall for your tormentor and abuser?
Actual Rating: 3.5 Stars

I first read this book about 20 years ago. It was one of my first reads into the world of quick read, trashy novels :-).

On paper, this is a book I should not like. The female lead is self-sacrificing (I LOVE strong females). The male lead borders on abusive in scenes. It is very PG in terms of romance and it crams in nearly every troupe possible from mistaken identity to hospital ending. It should be the book I throw my arms up in disgrace and go WTF!

However, reading it i
