I truly enjoyed this book. I loved Trace's arrogance and determine. The chemistry between Diana and Trace was sizzling. Yeah I got a little frustrated by Diana's stubbornness, but I also understood it. Crispina (Trace's mother) had no redeeming qualities, however I loved the way Trace stood up to her. Susan was truly the best kind of friend and Dominic was also. Although it is not a new storyline it was definitely worth reading and I would recommend it.

Good but could have been better

This story was, for the most part very well written. What bothered me was the author called the main character's love interest by a different name several times near the end of the story which is why I gave the story three stars instead of four. I found the female protagonist immature, and annoying at times. Frankly, I found Trace (The male lead)more likable. In summary, this story was well written, I would recommend it. I hope the author corrects the errors I ment
1.5 stars. Pretty disappointing.

The book starts off strongly with a great set up where Diana Pisano, the widow of a deceased billionaire is left nothing in the will but half the mansion she lives in. The other half of the mansion and ALL the money goes to her husband's nephew, Trace Montgomery, who just so happens to be her first love and the father of her son.

But the story nose-dives quickly. It was rather boring, trotting out one romance novel cliche after another. And the dialogue did not s
Just an OK read's sweet & SPICY; but quite repetitive...I enjoyed the chemistry between Trace and Diana...but I also found Diana and her logic to be IDIOTIC and some of her actions towards Trace SELFISH and immature; especially the whole plot surrounding her son; another small note someone dropped the ball on the editing; because at one point the hero was named Mason; and in some places throughout this novel they forgot to change it to Trace...oh, well...that being said I'd still g ...more
It's not the writing I had trouble with it was the characters

All I can say is, this heroine is sickening...I've never read a more annoyingly written character in my's hard to believe the character's persona was not intentionally written this way since the other characters weren't as asinine. Although the hero's willingness to forgive this heroine's silliness is quite unbelievable as well...this was a hard read...

One thing I must say about this book I did not like. When it came to Tracy names in this book sometimes not quite sure if the editor didn't notice it she kept calling him Mason. However everything else about the book was great. The plot starts off very slow you just have to keep reading the book. To me this book is about miscommunication and not trusting yourself . I was glad the way the book ended.

5 stars. Despite the over use of contractions of personal pronouns followed by 'not', i.e. I'll not, they'll not...and on 2 or 3 instances, referring to Trace, the male half of the couple, as Mason, from another of this author's books. With all that mayhem, 5 stars because the story was super. The characters were well developed, there were twists and the story flowed well. Trace and Diana's story was well told.

This story was good, but the plot was long for something that was assumed, and how she handled everything being pregnant and the choices she made, it wasn't realistic for what type of person she was supposed to be.

I tend to like romantic stories where the main characters are ex-lovers but because of certain circumstances they fight there 'still there' feelings, and this happened to be one of those stories.
Another mindless read.
