really liked it
Read from February 10 to 11, 2011

I loved this book - mostly. The singing took me out of the story and had me shaking my head, as did the being tied to the sofa bit (erotic? Yes, but in the context of the story, too controlling for my tastes). And the part where the world and his wife turned up at Min's bedroom door just didn't feel right.

I also have trouble relating to the 'overweight but she's so sexy and everybody loves her' type of character. I am rooting for her, don't get me wrong, but I just feel like its been done to death.

The positives are, I love the way Crusie writes her male protagonists. Ok, they are a little too perfect - and the bad guys are a little too bad - but we don't read romance novels to meet ordinary people, do we?

Despite my reservations I've still given this book a four because I read it in one sitting. Could. Not. Put. It. Down! For me, that's all I can ask for from a book.
