Remember that Olivia swore that she would never marry? Well, it turns out she had good reason to feel that way. The "Brides" story takes a hard left with this one, veering into unexpected territory. Olivia is reading a book and walking (never a great combo--these days substitute texting) and she fal ...more

I liked the plot and the writing was great but there are times where i thought that it was unrealistic .. like the first fight that Olivia experienced in the Pirate ship, instead of being realistically worried she was excited which is something I couldnt see happening
the ending was a huge surprise as to how their relationship stopped at, it was unexpected yet interesting .i dont want to give away too many spoiler for those who ...more
The story lone was nice, but not written very good.
The feelings between Olivia and Anthony weren't described very well, the love is there, but it is not described good enough.
And the end, it was one really boring end.
I don't know of this book deserves 2 or 3 stars, but I'm giving it 3.
The only thing that I find hard to believe and ridiculous is her unwillingness to marry. Considering what century she's living in she's condemning all her children to carrying a label of illegitimacy. Ridiculous!
A fun read that I enjoyed every minute of.
