I had a hard time rating this book,it was like the book was bipolar.The first part was to put it mildly.....boring........the second half picked up the drama and I enjoyed that.
Now to the characters,the heroine....too much of a "MarySue", there seemed to be no life to her character.The hero,sorry,but I like a totally Alpha hero to star in my books.He was sooo nice!Little Georgy was a cutie.Hated the hero's name,Anatole,it reminded me of a fat frog!
The book was written very well, but,at this poin

So much drama! So many exclamation points! It got rather overwrought! And repetitive!

Loved how hero was a good, responsible person, and saw the truth of heroine's character. His being won over by her speech reminded me of Royally Bedded, Regally Wedded but that was better handled. This also had the makeover miracle, which I just hate. And once her hair is done she is now gorgeous in a ponytail (but with highlights!) and some mascara/lipgloss. At least this heroine was just dreary, not outright r

Such a disappointment....and I normally like this author.

The storyline I know I have read it before and if I remember, it was done so much better.

The characters were so wishy-washy.....the heroine totally so not interesting...the whole thing of her childhood and her sister...blah, blah, blah. Where was her backbone??????
And the hero.....geez...couldn't the author find a more sexier name..Anatole...yuck....I really tried to like him because he was quite a nice guy...but in the end...far toooooooo

Boring! Her older books are way better! Where is the angst, the passion HP are famous for?
Jan 15, 2014 Lily rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
I was really turned off by the fact that the guy couldn't admit that he liked her until she had this HUGE makeover where suddenly she was hot as balls. The romance seemed very middle school. The writing was too simple and I don't know, didn't seem very mature. The plot had potential but the writing and small things just let it down. Didn't finish it

And just when I thought there was only ONE good harlequin posted for this month, this one jumps up and surprises me. I seriously enjoyed it immensely. It was another great harlequin that had the full effect of emotions and passionate characters.

First time reading anything by Julia James
Really enjoyed it!
Oh, my goodness, the drama! So, this is a "baby story." The Greek hero's cousin died in a car crash, leaving control of the family megabusiness in question, since grandpa is very ill with cancer. He discovers that the cuz may have left behind a baby, and tracks him down in England. The heroine is the baby's aunt, who is in the process of adopting him. She refuses to give him up, refuses to cooperate, but the hero is determined to find a way to make everyone happy, including the British bureaucra ...more

This is the story of Lyn and Anatole, and of cause Georgy. When I started reading this book I thought I might have read this book before, it’s a story that’s been done before. After finishing the book I can honestly say I was wrong about that. I didn’t care very much for this book, the characters’ were boring and one dimensional. I never warmed up to them so I really didn’t care what happened to them- ever. This book had no conflict and the story was just boring. I found myself flicking kindle p
Underwhelming romance. The only positive thing is it's written well.

The hero is an emasculated lapdog. A nice guy. Boring and good. Perfect feminist fantasy of what an HP hero should be.
The heroine is ok.

The only deadly dangerous characters in this book are the granddad and cousin.

Unfortunately the hero's lack of badass caused this book to be a fail. He was too saintly.

I usually enjoy reading Harlequin Presents The story line for this book is similar to several others that I have read. I don't mind reading similar plot lines if there is something different to offer or the characters have unique personalities. This book follows the same pattern with somewhat dull main characters. It doesn't get interesting until the end of the book.
