That was my reaction when the heroine bolted after learning of her husband infidelity – without CHECKING OUT ALL THE FACTS! Taking the word of a beautiful skank for scared without bothering to confront her husband? I don’t think so. Is everything all right with her?


That was my reaction when the heroine, AFTER FOUR YEARS, finally decided to discover the truth about whether her husband had really cheated on her before or not. Uhm, couldn’t she have done that when she learned of t
After Gianna's miscarriage, she felt alone and emotionally detached from husband Raul Velez-Saldana. But when the beautiful Sierra's answer's his phone when she calls him while he's out of town for business and insinuates things are going on between closed doors she packs up and leaves. She refused to answer his calls and the one time he flew out to see her refused him then too. Claiming the next move was hers.

Now four years later, Gianna has her own successful business and a quiet life. That ch

Not bad

I had no trouble understanding who was speaking and I thought the H loved the h. What I didn't get was why psycho ex girlfriend was allowed to "stalk" him for over 4 yrs and then magically went away just because h confronted her about her lies. In typical HP fashion, the author never really explained why H took 3 yrs to reconcile with h when he clearly loved her.
Not sure what to say. . . This author used to be a favorite, but I guess my taste has changed. While I bought her books for the gorgeous heroine, and the rich, alpha hero now her books seemed filled with the same self talk from the heroine over and over and over. The plot either have an antagonist after the hero or stalker type guy after the heroine. In between a lifestyle of the rich and famous. . Not really a comfort read anymore.

Grand title! Splendid characters! And riveting plot.

Sadly the writer didn't utilize anything completely. Very poorly written. The love isn't conveyed well at all. Felt really futile. -_-
This was a quick, light read with a few hot sex scenes. I liked Raul very much and Gianna. I would have given this one 4 stars if there had been more dialog and less explanation.

I didn't hate it, but I definitely didn't want to finish it. I thought the male character of Raul was very two dimensional.
