It wasn't badly written, grammar-wise. There aren't glaring typos or anything. The author is competent enough. Just...

It was very bland, I'd say. The 'big secret' hinted at in the title and summary, I guessed before even opening the book. And it's a romance novel so you know it ends up 'happily ever after'. The author just didn't 'sell it' well enough to make the story work despite the predictability.

For characters, there's the typical heroine-sue (this time hailing from Italy and British ari
Alex is The Romance Fox
This is an okay read. I thought the heroine was a bit of a cow....and forcing the guy to grovel and wasn't all his fault after all....yes, he was an idiot having lied to her in the beginning...why he did made no sense to don't want to give the whole thing away...but really!!!

The best part of the book was the epilogue, which made it up for me.
Angel and Alex spend a night together but the morning after is not what Angel expects. Alex tells her he is a married man when in reality he is a widower who feels guilty for betraying the memory of his dead wife.

Six years later single mother Angel who is now a model has to work with Alex for a campaign. He doesn't know she had his baby girl or that he is the only man Angel has ever loved.

I admired the heroine and her dedication to her daughter. The epilogue was exactly what I wanted as a read
This is a very good book by Kim Lawrence. As I say on most of my reviews for Harlequin Presents novels, the story is typical HP. You have a heroine who has been hurt by the hero in the past. The hero is under some kind of macho-man righteous anger and that he was betrayed in some way by the heroine. And like most HP novels, it follows the predictable pattern of when the hero and heroine have scenes where they confront one another, they wind up making out or in bed.

However, I don't say this with
Good read,but kinda flat.Did not really feel the chemistry between this couple at all.I liked the epilogue though.
What I liked- this is a deep romance story not the usual lustmance populating HPs.
I liked the hero. The heroine wasn't too annoying. She stayed celibate during the 5 years she was raising her child. The epilogue was lovely

What I didn't like- the hero turned into a lapdog. He apologized for not taking birth control precautions though it takes 2 to make an unplanned baby and the heroine never apologized. In older better HPs heroes upon discovering they were dads used all devious means necessary t

Ok so the guy was a total jerk after their first encounter. What I don't get is why she would want to be with him 6 years later and he continues to be a jerk. He doesn't change until he finds out they had a child together. I did enjoy the epilogue.

This book was strech in the begining with too much description and fillers. I found my self saying a lot"im tired to know about the characters individually" just get to the point of the story already. But the end didnt disapoint me.
To one each own.I don't see anything interesting or appealing inthis kind of stories. They are faker than a 1950's B-movies, and less fun.

But it's a way to pass the time I guess.
This just didn't work for me. Clueless heroine; too much bickering; "I can't have more children!" melodrama followed by a surprise!baby in the epilogue...
liking story, but POV changes bog it down! confusing at times, and angst was more akin to bickering.
uff tah so much manliness and womanliness
It was a decent novel. I expected a bit more emotional drama and passion but it left me feeling a bit flat without it. The ending was cute but I was waiting for her brother to rip the hero a new asshole, it totally skipped that part.

"This romance with a consequence feels like kismet as the couple has a take two in ultra-affluent surroundings. Lawrence's stimulating opponents make a diametric couple until the sparks fly with their banter and their lovemaking." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 1/2 stars
