I don't know about you but bad boys are bad for the heart. They are also not good for the consumption. Totally a big no no for certified evil man pretending to be a hero at the end. Nick was such a completely ugly illustration of a man. He was selfish, self-centered and egoistic. He had no redeeming point whatsoever. Perhaps, Ms. Judith Macnaught was trying to portray him as someone with a bad past because his mother abandoned him at a young age and as a result he treats wom ...more
What to say, what to say....
As you all know I'm a huge McNaught fan, but this one was an absolute, no way around it, not even going to give a sympathy star for one of my favorite authors...Stinker! And I had a feeling it would be after the first 2 chapters.
Nick was great but I didn't like Lauren in the least bit. The storyline seemed very rushed and the chemistry between the two was at a minimum luke warm...
If this is your first McNaught book please take my advice and do not read this ...more
She stepped aside and let him in, then took his jacket and hung it in the closet. When she turned, Nick was leaning against the closed front door, his arms crossed over his chest. "On second thought," he grinned, "I take part of that ba ...more
But c'mon, who doesnt like a man brought to his knees over his own actions? So, though it's certainly not one of her best, I liked it. (I read the entire thing in one sitting.)
Imo, a "bad" Judith Mcnaught, is better than most that are considered "good" in romance novels now-a-days. S ...more
His treatment of her from the beginning was terrible. She was very naive. I was glad to see that she stood up to him for the majority of the book. There were some of her comments that I wanted to stand up and cheer.
The end was too abrupt. I know this is JM's earlier writing, but I know that some of her newer offerings don't always give enough ...more
The heroine seems very grown up for her age. One wonders sometimes when she comes up with replies that would more a thirty something heroine instead a twenty year old.
Besides the characters, I liked the story. You saw the train wreck coming from the start and Mrs. McNaught ma ...more
As far as contemporary romance go, the story truly delivers. But there's no element of surprise as the plot is pretty cliche and cheesy. Not that it is bad thing, especially when your own love life is non-existence. So, this is a great book to be used as an escapism :)
Maybe it is just me because I can't seem to get enough of JM's story, but I find the endin ...more

I love these oldies. Even when I know it'll be like a train wreck approaching and I still can't look the other way.
And so it was with DS, written in 1986. The good thing about it, when I am brave enough to tackle a romance written in the bad ol '80s is that I can't complain about any nasty surprises. I am prepared for the nasty and all that I judge the book on is whether the story's compelling and whether I find the male lead attractive (or ...more

Kitabı bitirdim ve bilemiyorum belki uzun zaman oldu Judith McNaught okumayalı, tarzını unuttum veya bu kitap gerçektende diğerlerinden farklıydı. Kurgusu olsun, karakterleri olsun değişikti. Severek , beğenerek okudum. Nick'in kendinden emin tavırları, konuşmaları, hareketleri kimi zaman beni benden alacak kadar sinirlendirsede, iş tatlıya bağlandığı için mesudum. Yazarımızın bundan sonra çıkıpta okucağımız kitaplar arasında kötünün iyisiydi ...more
* Lauren is a secretary with stenographic skills and uses a typewriter ... not a computer in sight!
* Lauren wears velour shorts with a matching top ... I remember that fashion!
* Lauren drives a six month old Trans Am.
* Nick is an experienced 37-year-old; he's intense and carrying the hurt of the abandonment of his mother ... our typical hero from that time.
* Lauren is a 23-year-old virgin (our ...more

I don't know what to say about this one .
first of all , I picked up this book because I was planing to read another book of the same author.
as I started reading it , it was okay ..
but as I reached 25 of the book , I realized that it is kind of mature .. there were lits of description and sex scenes going one .. it ruined my mind , thanks Judith .. and it went on and on.. not once nor twice ... so , if u are the kind who doesn't read or like reading about sex , this is totally not ur kin ...more
I am tired reading the same kind of recycled stories, it's so repetitive that I feel they are the same characters with just the name changed.
Meet Nick an extremely wealthy, successful, handsome and charming business man. Meet Lauren an extremely beautiful and talented young woman. Lauren comes to work for Nick's company but there is a catch she is there to spy. The usual happens Nick finds Lauren attractive she resists, he falls in Love only to realize that she might be a spy and cruel ...more
My review: http://bit.ly/bO0ZQd
First of all - can Judith M. write a book that does not revolve around a HUGE (but usually stupid and easily avoided) misunderstanding!? If so, I have yet to read one!
Secondly - the hero was an a**hole, through and through...
A) He seduces a virgin, pretending that he really likes her and wants more from her than a one night stand, only to dump her the mor ...more
