Got 2 stars only because Diana Palmer writes well. BUT I could not stomach her hero & heroine. What an unhealthy codependent relationship they've got going! Heroine is so codependent, obsequious, & a doormat that even when she overhears the hero blast her about how he really thinks of her she still concedes to his wishes. Ugh! The romance is just not believable. Just hard to see how hero becomes attracted to her when he still sees heroine as extremely insecure, weak, & directionless....more
si alexander awalnya bener2 bikin gw pengen getokin palanya..
abis bener2 nyebelin banget..
tp emang khas DP deh.. co2nya rata2 nyebelin di awal..
tp akhirnya malah dia yg ngejar2 si jodie..
yg payah sih jodie trll gmpg memaafkan ya..
after all lmyn terhibur juga sih walopun not my fave DP..
ga tega kasi 2 bintang jadi nambah sebiji deh.. =P
Not too shabby. But the plot is typical.

The female protagonist is a virgin. *rolling eyes* Naive but of course, she is beautiful.
The male protagonist is a jerk. OK, so in the end he becomes a reformed man. At least that's one of the reasons why I gave 3 stars to this book.

Antes de qualquer coisa devo dizer que o tempo e o dinheiro que gastei para conseguir adquirir este livro, deveria fazer deste romance, o melhor de Diana Palmer. Mas as coisas, não são bem assim.

Vamos por parte, como diria Jack.

Faz no mínimo 3 anos que procurava este livro, e como ele saiu em 2005, só poderia encontrá-lo em lojas de livros usados, procurei durante esse tempo, em todos os sebos que existiam na minha cidade, e nad...more
I was in the mood for typical Palmer, and this fit the bill pretty well. The hero is much less of a jerk than usual -- that is, he's only outrageously mean to the heroine one time, and that by accident.

The ending trails off with several plot issues unresolved, probably to come up again in later books in the series. The plot was pretty nonsensical anyway, so it doesn't matter much.

One thing that irked me a little -- Jodie starts the book having lost a considerable amount of weight, and Alexander...more

This is one of Diana Palmer's bok that not only romance but also some actions. :)

Jodie and Alexander's always fighting. They seems like they hate each other but to be honest, Jodie's in love with Alexanders since forever. And apparently Alexander's feeling the same way but he's just to scared to admit it and said bad things to her. She's hurt and flew back to her home only to find Alexander, sitting in front of her, begging her to come back..

Not exactly like that, but let's just say I like it...more
Not bad but heroine was kind of fickle, couldn't warm up to her.
Tadinya mau kasih 5 stars... emosinya kena, apalagi pas Jodie denger Lex bilang ama Adiknya kalo dia ga mau liat jodie lagi di deketnya, padahal Jodie, baru berbunga" abis Lex mau kiss dia sampe ampir ehem" segala....
hik hik hik
tapi dipikir" kok ga kena logikaku sama cerita ini... mana ada drug dealer yang bisa dibodo"in kaya Cara...:(
Jadi yah cukup 4 saja deh...

I'm lost with some of the vocabs and the plot buut the thought of what will happen to the main characters (Alexander and Jodie) haunted me so I kept reading it till the end :D She's missing some important details and the concflict is not really strong to build a solid foundation for two people go apart or even decided to go back together :D
Endingnya mengecewakan. Kirain masalahnya Cara, Brody, dan Kennedy udah bsa terselesaikan tp ternyata masih misterius. Ceritanya Derek dgn Margie jg masih gantung (bikin penasaran aj T__T). Kisah cinta Jodie dgn Alex kurang menyentuh
It was ok.. I didn't like how they made the main character. And I didn't like how Alex and Margie treated her at times.

And I got bored of it after awhile and had to skim the rest.

Typical of Diana Palmer...or Harlequin? but at least...I enjoy this one better than other book.
Diana Palmer tiene mejores historias. No sé qué le pasó con ésta, no parece escrita por ella.
