That usually turns me off - it actually works for her books. As usual, this book caught me and wouldn't let me go until the end.
While Harper started off as an annoying person, I did enjoy her relationship with Father Bruce. Also, her proposal to her boyfriend, Dennis, along with her list of things to do related to him, was really funny.
The flashbacks/memories really gave you insight into what happened between Harper and Nick. I loved that Nick started calling her wife from the first time he met her. Both the hero and heroine made mistakes during their relationship and marriage, which is obvious during the flashbacks.
There were several times in which I did get teary during the reading of this book. It's a shame that she had a limited relationship with her father and her stepmother. Harper did go overboard on 'taking care' of her stepsister, but her realization of this seemed kind of quick.
Harper did grow throughout the book and realized some of her mistakes - related to her relationship with Nick, as well as her relationships with her father, stepmother and stepsister. Definitely liked this book.(less)

You have someone trying to kill you and you look at it as free advertising for your business? Really? You get ticked because you're told that you need to close up the business until the individual is caught? Oh - you open up a business in which you cannot even make the product . . .and only hire one person to help you! OMG! Got about halfway through . . .when she started to argue about putting on makeup to go walk on the beach - I was done.(less)

You have hot alpha SEAL who sometimes has psychic flashes when he touches someone - - something that runs in his family - - and who has been waiting for his soul mate for 10 years. He gets a flash of his buddies being killed on the flight they are about to take. The heroine is described as pretty, but not drop-dead gorgeous. Basically, a normal female, who has a penchant for paranormal romances with alpha heroes. The heroine, who has no psychic ability, dreams of a whole day of events, including specifics about the hero and his friends. She follows up on her dream of a hijacked plane only after the first 2 events of her dream actually come true. The heroine works for the airline that is going to be hijacked and decides to just see if she recognizes anyone from her dream at the gate from her dream. There's our hero and his friends . . .with the hero knowing as soon as she enters that she is his mate (however, there is no shapeshifter heritaget involved). While the story does give the reactions of the hero and heroine to each other and their developing relationship, you get taken through the whole initial capture/investigation of the now-aborted hijacking. While the storyline doesn't resolve in this book, there is a conclusion to the most immediate issues. The book's storyline took place over 2 or 3 days, but was very busy. I am curious about the follow-up books, as well as who the ultimate bad guy will be, and will be interested to see how the supporting characters' stories turn out.(less)
