Don't get me wrong, you get your happy ending but it feels incomplete and rushed.

I cannot believe it! He finally rapes her and they declared their love for each ither after a couple of days and pages! Haha I am giving this two stars for the interesting characters and back story. So glad I didn't grow up back in those days..."A husband is no longer allowed by law to rape his own wife." *roll eyes*

Just completed today this book,must say the author has written it nicely but i strongly hate the fact Rape was in the story n hero says"you knew it was coming i will not apologise"i hated this part of the story n end was a not satisfying

would have liked it if Glenda would have slowly realised that she was not infactuated to Simon n loved Mal ,her feelings were shown to chang very suddenly n Mal he was never shown to fall in love

but story was nice,Genda's guilt n her actions to save herself n M
