Alexa thought that she was gonna marry the man of her dreams. Except that she made the mistake of insisting on getting married in her hometown and introducing her fiancee to her BFF. Her fiancee falls instantly in love with BFF and dumps Alexa.

When the book begins, Alexa is attending the wedding of her ex & her BFF and trying to put on a brave face. I have no idea why the heroines in these romances always have to attend these weddings of people who BETRAY her and have to act all gracious as
Alexa's fiance jilted her for her bff and she's totally devastated. She attends the wedding because otherwise the gossip will be unbearable, besides her bff's mother had written and specially asked her to attend because her bff feels so bad and guilty.
At the reception she meets her ex's brother Scott and he looks so much like Marc that she can almost pretend he is. She gets very drunk and ends up in bed with him and would have given her virginity to him if she hadn't called him by his brother's
Normally I like Mrs. Wentworth's heroines but this one was a bit annoying. She visits the wedding of her ex-fiancée with her best friend, hooks up with his brother and tries to kill herself. The hero is rather mean, tells her she only tried to kill herself to spoil his brothers marriage and that he understands well why his brother has chosen her best friend instead of her as she's only a pretty face but otherwise annoying.

He marries her to keep her from attempting another suicide and takes her

Well that was certainly different. I didn't really like the heroine at all. She needed to put on her big girl panties and get over herself. And the hero needed to cut her loose and get a real woman. I never saw a single thing that would make him love her. She was a whinny brat most of the story. She does eventually get over his brother and fall for him. Their relationship in the second half of the book was well done. They spent time together and he was super to her and why wouldn't she fall in l ...more

3 Stars ~ Alexa is heartbroken when her fiance falls in love with her best friend and he wants to marry her instead. When Mark and Elaine want to marry in Alexa's hometown and they invite her to the wedding, she feels that in order to avoid everyone from feeling pity for her, she has to go. To bolster her courage she drinks quite heavily and attracts the attention of Mark's older brother, Scott. They've never met before so Scott doesn't realize she's the jilted ex. The resemblance between the br ...more
I feel guilty for finding this hot, even though the "hero" was quite simply a violent (oh wait, that means passionate, doesn't it?) eff-wit most of the time. OK, maybe ONE violent instance, but even though he felt guilty afterwards he still blamed her for making him react that way. ARGH! That aside, I liked the Brazilian locacle.
I loved the author's other books but I didn't enjoy this one so much. The heroine was a bit (much) mentally unstable, childish, and spoiled.
Also, I know this is an old book, but in it the burning and exploitation of the Amazonian rain forests is considered quite a humanitarian and good thing. Now we know better!
The heroine in this story makes a suicide attempt. I read it to see how that event was handled. In the '80s, I'd read other books by this author and enjoyed them.

Amazing to think this type of story was what we enjoyed in the '80s. We've come a long way. I'll say no more.

liked it even though the heroine needs to grow up!!
i felt compelled to write a review simply because of the heroine. she's so childish. and shes very prone to wander when things gets too hot to handle.
awsome..........simply awesome u will never find a better m&b
