Now that Constantine has summoned Laura to Greece, she's more stubborn than he recalls. Det

Things I didn't like:
1. She's not even his mistress - what's up with HQN titles OMG. They make us romance readers look so trashy and superficial -.-
2. H is too snobby
3. The narrative describing every single move + belonging of the heroine as 'cheap' pissed me off
4. Character development of the son wasn't done well, nor was the relationship. The child was more like a side-theme instead of a major one, used just for the sake of the trope.

Things I liked:
1. Sharon Kendrick, because, well, she's old
Esta novela de Sharon Kendrick mejoró sólo al final. El durante fue con ganas de estampar a la heroína contra una pared, porque podés querer a un hombre y hacerlo todo para estar con él, te aplaudo por perseverante. Lo que no tolero es que ella sea la única que se hace cargo de todo cuando él no hizo nada. No la ayudó con su embarazo a pesar de que ella fue la que contactó con él a través de siete años para decirle que esperaba un hijo suyo y luego se lava las manos diciendo "no fue mi culpa".

I had no idea what the hero saw in this heroine. She looked washed out and old for her age from having a hard life, and the hero didn't even think twice about her after taking her virginity in the past. At first I was enjoying the story because it didn't seem like the run of the mill. It had a jerk of an hero that I wanted to see get taken down a notch by the heroine, but I didn't see one thing about the doormat heroine that I could believe would have made the hero fall for her, so I lost intere ...more

You know I couldn't tell if the heroine was deemed attractive or not...there seemed to be some ambiguity then moments of clarity.

This book was your typical of its genre with a twist that I enjoyed...the heroine didn't seem to be as much of a pushover as these heroines can be.

At the same time, she had sex with this guy afer he'd flat out told her that she was here as the hired help (a deal they made for the son to come out there under the guise of the mother taking a job in his home) and to not f
Very middle of the road secret baby book. Not bad but not great. I didn't enjoy the hero not really remembering the heroine. It did have the element that I like in secret baby books. The heroine had tried to contact the hero but wasn't able to because he was so rich and she couldn't get through his security etc. I like there to be a decent reason for the secret baby.

So readable and enjoyable but probably not ever a reread

Shelves: steamy
Steamy love story full of passion but don't read this if you don't like cruel alpha heroes.
2 1/2 - I enjoyed this book but I just couldn't help thinking of the supposed "hero" as an arrogant, self-centered, crude, women-hating asshole and the "heroine" as a weak, pathetic, self-depricating wimp. He was horrible to her!!! He insulted her, belittled her, mocked her, and even enjoyed watching her serve him like a slave, and she just stood there and took it!!! And then let him screw her senseless over and over again. Don't get me wrong, I thought Constantine was hot. More than hot. Unbeli ...more

I enjoy book but I did think Constantine was a dick the whole way through. Not much goes on in book. Very quick sort of HEA. I think he should have grovel more.

Wow! Have I enjoyed this book! It was so straight forward, or was it? They loved each other, or did they. And so believable. Yes, definitely a book to read if you are a romantic at heart. Nice job, Sharon Kendrick!

Si no leía el periódico a causa de su dislexia, cómo hacía para investigar en internet? Sé que no es un impedimento pero ni siquiera se vuelve a hablar de la dificultad y quedé con la curiosidad. Y disfrutar mientras ella le servía, go and f#ck yourself dude.

I was told off as a child for making up stories—little did I know that one day I’d earn my living by writing them!

To the horror of my parents, I left school at sixteen and held a bewildering variety of jobs: I was a London DJ (in the now-trendy Primrose Hill), a decorator and a singer. After that I became a cook, a photographer and, eventually, a nurse. I waitressed in the south of France, drove a
