it was ok

Sad to say that this book was a disappointment. I couldn't gel with the heroine. She was too feminist for my taste, which made the hero seem like a wimp by comparison. Another problem was the over-writing, the filling, if you like. For instance, one paragraph was devoted to the hero opening an hotel door. Something like he slid the card key into the slot, waited for the light to turn green, turned the handle to open the door, flipped on the lights.... Yawn, ok we get it. He opened the door! We don't need all the tiny details. This happened more than once, slowing the story down for no particular reason other than to stretch it out.

I kept going, hoping it would liven up, only to get to the end and find that it hadn't actually ended. There's obviously another book in the series. I didn't know it was a series and won't be looking for the next one.
