overwrought prose, too much introspection and too little action or dialog bogged down what little plot there was... heroine's suddenly deciding she was "in lurve" with a man she basically did not know was also just unbelievable... I Do Not Recommend this one.

A little cliched, but we all knew what would happen in this one anyway. Still, it was an agreeable way to pass the afternoon, reading in the sunshine with two dogs at my feet, staring longingly at my chocolate stash, so i won;t complain too much. The usual Harlequin fare, not much stands out about this one.

Mildly entertaining, this may have been better as a novella since the story is very straight to the point and absolutely no surprises; the author however, decided to stretch it on and on and on and on..... It's not bad, it's just not memorable.
