After reading my last HP, this one pales in comparison. However, it's a good book.

Some of my thoughts:

*I could totally understand why Alex was unhappy with Gabriel's lying to her about his identity. It's probably a 'duh' comment, but I truly hate when people lie to you. It's usually unnecessary. And it makes a future relationship based on trust very difficult. So, I could see Alex's insecurity in her relationship with Gabriel, although I didn't like it. I felt her struggle not to be 'weak' in h

A rich man’s lie comes back to haunt him to bring both pain and an unexpected pleasure that will send him careening into personal chaos and love.

When Gabriel was a younger man he wanted to, just once, experience freedom from all his responsibilities and the expected course of his life and succeeded beyond his imagination. The pinnacle of that rebellious action was the meeting of a young woman with whom he had a passionate and wild affair unlike any he’d ever experienced. Being the man that he w

I didn't think I'd make it through the book because I found the constant bickering and fighting in the first half to be annoying. However, once they started really communicating to sort through their differences and compromise, I began enjoying the book.

I'd almost give it 3 1/2 stars, except for the fact that the hero actually says "You complete me." Yes, I know it's a romance, but I hate the notion that someone can't be a complete and whole person on their own.

Good thing I have a kindle..... I was turning the pages so fast I'd have gotten paper cuts if it had been a paperback. There was SOOO MUCH internal dialogue.. 2 pgs of internal thoughts then 2 lines of real dialogue! I didn't like the H at all and didn't believe he loved h. I thought this was going to be about revisiting old relationships, building new r/s, H trying to build trust since he lied to her, and falling in love..... not! could have been a good story,

Bu yazarın kalemini seviyorum. Okuduğum hikayelerinin çoğunu beğendim. Sahte Sevgili de bu kitaplar arasına girdi. Romanın erkek kahramanın bencilliği duygusuzluğu beni sinir etti. Bir kadın ile birlikte bir sene sahte isimle birlikte olup ortadan kaybol sonra kendini haklı çıkarmaya çalış...
Neyse bu ayın okunmaya değer romanlarından idi.

It was an ok book but god was he arrogant and I hated how she just fell back for him though he ran right over her. I liked how they had quite a few scenes with the littl boy made it a much better book.

I found this and couldn't remember if I liked it or not and so I reread it....yup, no. Not a Lenore book. Gabriel was unreasonably arrogant and full of himself. Alex was annoying and all over the place. The only good interactions were with Luke -- I tend not to enjoy children in these romance books, but this is where Ms. Williams got it perfectly right...he wasn't annoyingly sickeningly sweet....it was nice normal interactions. And both Gabriel and Alex were great with him. Unfortunately, yeah t ...more

I found it way too slow and the passion wasn't really there either for me anyways.

Não entendo pq insisto em ler livros onde há mocinhos que são espanhóis.

Se não consigo suportar a arrogância, a prepotência e principalmente o ser possessivo que são.

Pq ainda leio?

Só pode ser, pq sou uma pessoa otimista e acredito que há exceções e esperança, que um dia vou encontrar um livro onde os ditos cujos não sejam insuportável.

Sorry, 2 estrelinhas... meu bom senso não permite mais que isso...

Recommends it for: Anyone wanting a quick, easy read.
This was a typical Harlequin Romance. It wasn't an amazing story, but enjoyable enough that I got through it without too much difficulty. The characters were ok and their challenges pretty typical for this type of book. I probably will never read it again, but it wasn't an awful read.

This was not one of the best Mills and Boon I have read. In fact I found the storyline quite annoying and a bit of a drag. There are better out there. Whilst I realise these novels are cliche' in many respect this was appallingly so.
