I couldn't stand the hero.

I started this book on a Friday and finished it on Sunday. It was a quick read and an enjoyable one. A love story that you wish could be true. Fun, easy and light read.

Pretty good book, would have been better to read around Christmas, but a good light read for any romantic

It was okay. Same basic plot of all the other Harlequin/Silhouette books.
