Very good book. I liked both Ariel and Jacob. Jacob had closed off his emotions after losing too many people who were close to him. He had been hurt too much to want to risk it again. When Ariel came to him and appealed to him as a doctor to help her out, he couldn't say no. But he was also leery, as she attracted him as no woman had in years. Ariel needed Jacob's help as a doctor. She couldn't risk anyone knowing of her health issues while she was filming her new movie, so she talked Jacob into ...more

I thought it was stupid.

I didn't like the characters.
I didn't like the plot.
I didn't like all the illness & death.

It wasn't realistic and I couldn't relate.

This book is a typical Harlequin Desire length yet somehow it seemed really short. It's the story of the third Wolff brother, Dr. Jacob and a Hollywood starlet, Ariel Dane. Ariel has come to Jacob to ask him to masquerade as her boyfriend while shooting her next film in Antigua. She contracted malaria months ago and fears she might have another attack which would risk her Oscar-worthy role. If Jacob is there he can attend her and make excuses without revealing the illness.

I'm not sure why the s

Dr. Jacob Wolff is wealthy and reclusive. So when a young actress comes to his office and asks him to be her personal doctor and stand-in boyfriend, he's a bit reluctant to agree. Ariel needs a fake boyfriend. Preferably one who is a doctor. She has something making her ill. If Dr. Wolff is her boyfriend and secretly treating her, no one will realize she's sick and she can continue her job without danger of losing it. It's the perfect plan; or so she thinks.

The premise for this story was amusing

I can’t say I hated it. I actually enjoyed it, even if the middle 150 or so pages was a repetition of the you-are-too-young-for-me (8 years is too young?) and you-don’t-want-to settle-down tropes. There was the intermittent story of Ariel’s mother’s serious illness to add a bit of angst, and a few other secondary characters to get to know a little bit, but overall, if you want a story to read quickly that won’t tax your brain this may be the one for you.

I don't normally read Harlequin Desire, but since I'm a member of Tell Harelquin, I read it, and was very surprised that I loved it! I thought Jacob was portrayed especially well--the guy is HOT!!! :) And while I didn't completely identify with Ariel all the time (she's a movie star, and I don't have much experience in That field, LOL), I really liked the two of them together. The book held my attention from beginning to end, and I really enjoyed it. It was a pleasant escape. If I see future boo ...more
What a nice change from most hero's that you read about now in that this one was honorable, sweet, kind, brilliant, but still alpha. And he was not a man whore!

Liked that heroine, she was beautiful, strong, kind and sassy (which I loved).

And I thought these two together was pure perfection. They had great chemistry, storyline, witty dialogue and hot (the beach scene was hot and beautiful).

A very pleasant and nice surprise in this read!
Sep 02, 2012 Rob rated it it was ok
This was just ok for me...a few things that bothered me were the frequent references to the age difference between Jacob and Ariel (it wasn't even that much), however it kept me thinking he was robbing the cradle, and then Jacob's little pet names for her just made it that much more disturbing. The Epilogue could have been better

Had more plot and emotion than most romance novels; I didnt mind the racy parts. It was a good read for a lazy afternoon.

Impossible to Resist was Impossible to Finish.

I simply could not finish this . It was Awful.I'd give it less than half a star, if that were possible.

- My Description -
Dr. Jacob Wolff is in trouble.
Trouble means being hired by the super famous actress Ariel Dane.

Ariel & her mother take a trip overseas where Ariel becomes sick with Malaria.
She then enlists the good doctor's help in watching over her while filming a movie.
But (there's always a but, right?) she also wants the good doctor to pretend to be her boyfriend, for appearances sake only.

She doesn't want the cast and crew to know she's sick so Hello Dr. Wolff.

I'm a huge fan of the Alpha hero and I found that Jacob was just too much of a beta for me. (I generally tend to think that most doctor heroes are, so this is possibly just my own personal hang up.) There was a lot of story going on in this book and simultaneously not enough at the same time. I sincerely wish this had been a full-length novel. I think, possibly, I could have connected with these characters more. There were a lot of really cool bits and pieces to this book, lots of elements I tru ...more

Per la serie trama che vince non si cambia ecco la terza variazione sul tema: giovine virgulta entra dalla porta, ricco miliardario viene abbrancato da vampate di lussuria. Da uomo onorevole qual è aspetta almeno tre capitoli prima di strapparle coi denti i vestiti di dosso, e altri 20 circa prima di sposarla e renderla felice tutta la vita.

Tre stelline lo stesso perchè almeno i due protagonisti mi stanno simpatici.

So far, this is my favorite of the author's 'The Men of Wolff Mountain' series. The relationship between stoic loner, Dr. Jacob Wolff and the sassy, independant actress Ariel Dane was just heart wrenching. I didn't want the story to end.

I guess in some weird way I like this family of disfunctional men. I must cause I keep reading. Lots of premarital sex.

This was the first book by Janice Maynard I've read but it won't be the last. She writes extremely well, her characters are engaging, and the plot is gripping. I recommend her highly.

Janice Maynard came to the writing life early! When her third grade short story, “The Princess and the Robbers”, won a red ribbon in a school arts fair, Janice was hooked. She followed up that early success with a more commercial piece in the sixth grade… “Why My Mom Loves To Drink Coke”. No advance for that one, but she won a six-pack of Coke… remember those great little bottles?
