I uh....I kind of...well...that is to say that...erm...
I have no idea what I think about this book.
I read it as a cheaters in romance book but…is there really any cheating?
Maybe emotional cheating, or moral or maybe it was just one strange turmoil of misunderstandings, mishaps and…and…erm…I really do not want to say bad writing...more like unfinished scribbles.
During this whole book I felt like I was reading the authors notes on the book she was going to write. Because really, so much was missin

This book although a bit confusing, was sweet. I just don't understand how this could be a "cheating" book. Can someone please explain? Cause I never found any cheating unless we are talking about some kind of emotional drama. Yeah the hero broke the heroines heart but they weren't really together, at all. When I was done reading it I was glad for the happy ending but left feeling, well.. reflection on how bad this book.. sucked. I really expected more and was generally disappointed.

First the h is too young and not allowed to date, then she goes off to college and isn't home enough, but finally she returns and John b

He's known as Big John by those who feel intimidated by his size and his temper, as J.P. to those who call him friend, and as Paladin by those who hold a grudge. Dana calls him Paladin, for her John is a force that frightens her, not just his size and temper, but for the feelings he brings out in her. John has a problem, a newborn with no mother and he has been desperately in love with Dana for years. But he blew it and now he has to do double the work to get her to trust him and may be become t ...more
