this was too light, nthg much happening n they were in love ! i was especially shocked by madison's sudden insight dat she was in love wid gideon. i was like what !? hate at 1st sight, love in a few days lol !? add 2 dat she had emotional baggage; she was just out of a relationship n needing some serious TLC according 2 edgar(her godfather). yet here she was, very much in love wid gideon !? then at the end, too much drama !as if the author had just remembered some drama was required n packed in ...more

Once upon a time our heroine' s mother met the hero's father. She refused to have an affair with him because he was married. He left his wife for her, and still she refused him because he was now 'divorced' and her religion didn't approve of divorce. She started seeing heroine's father but still slept with the hero's father. And had his baby.

Many years later hero meets and falls in love with his half-brother's half-sister.

All I can say is, ick.

Definitely not my favorite Mortimer book. No one can bat a 1000, but bleh. This just really didn't work for me, and I think one of the primary reasons was the huge age gap (16 years) between hero & heroine. Maybe if she'd been a little older, the 16 years wouldn't have felt as squicky, but at 22 and 38...yeah, really icked me a lot.

It had potential, it really did. But the ending just ruined it for me. To me, it seemed as tough the author wanted to wrap things up quickly, and disregarded everything logical about the psychology of the characters. Which basically made my rating for this book plummet.

Madison is bound by contract to work -- and live! -- with the director for the next eight months! How will she keep her true identity a secret for so long? She knows Gideon will sack her if he finds out, but she's also irresistibly attracted to him -- ever since their first steamy kiss....

Most of it was uneventful but towards the end the drama got very good. The cause of the drama was a bit silly, since the events that caused grief happened when the protagonist was 6 and now he was 38, so surely he had some time to get over childhood trauma, but the way the drama was presented with all the twists was engaging.

The last part was the only time I didn't have to force myself to turn the page, although it was still ridiculous. Melodramatic insta-love with a controlling creep, oy vey.
