Well... let's start with myself.
I don't trust people very easily. I don't even like people! So those I consider my friends have to go through a long process where they have to:
1. Earn my trust. (Very important)
2. Know that even though we have things in common, we all have our differences in personalities and behavior.
3. Maintain that trust.
4. Respect is highly valued.
Now, with these already stated, you ...more
I say this because the female lead of this story irritated me to no end most of the time and some really quite serious issues were sort of shrugged off after one night. I think that Cormac's turn from ruthless to loving should have been more subtle, but instead we were kept in the dark and made to feel that ...more
Ella: soy virgen a los veintiocho años.
Él: ah, mirá qué bien. Mirame las ganas que ...more
The first half of the book was difficult to read because Cormac Douglas was so intense. He was one self-assured, ruthless, harsh, uncaring man and he had a plan; he was going to fake a marriage to his secretary Lizzie in order to win a prestigious bid to build a resort. The key was the family building the resort wanted a “family ...more
Basically the hero lures his secretary onto a plane to the Caribbean letting her think she's coming on business. She can't refuse on the plane, can she? To pretend to be his wife? And being a bit of a bastard has a few tricks up his sleeve so, no she ...more
Le couple formé par Lizzie et Cormack est l'un des pires couples de romance que j'ai lus jusqu'à présent. Séparés, ils sont tout aussi pourris: elle se laissant marcher sur les pieds par sa soeur et sans beaucoup de perspective d'avenir, lui un peu taré sur les bords et utilisant des méthodes très discutables dans les affaires. Ensemble c'est encore pire: elle une vraie carpette qu ...more
Lizzie may be under duress in playing Cormac's wife. Finding out that he is using her feelings against her to win a contract is more than she can bear. Hoping that love can conquer all is a very unlikely senario.
A very touching, sweet s ...more
This is the 3rd book I read by this author and so far the heroes are so lovely that I'm left with this incredible urge to throw them of a cliff.
The way they behave is so not attractive to me and I think you'll agree, unless you're into being hurt and humiliated by men until all that is left is emptiness.
Really, I don't know why I keep trying. Definitely not recommended.
I can forgive a lot in a HP title, but a hero who constantly demeans the heroine, engages in non-sexy blackmail, and then tries to seduce her to make the thing he's blackmailing her into doing look more believable is apparently a bridge too far.
