Yippee! Another Calgon-take-me-away book series that gives you extraordinarily high and unobtainable expectations of men! Seriously, will you ever be able to go on a date again and not think, "*sigh* You don't have purple eyes, you aren't freakishly muscular and you rarely, if ever, morph into a god. Lame. And a buffet? Really? You couldn't transport me to India for authentic Indian cuisine? *rolling eyes*" But this story was sweet. Though I do have to mention I was amazed at how often the lead female character was sick, puking or being murdered. And as strange as this is, I found myself wondering if she ever got to eat. She ate one time, threw it up and then never ate again - and the book was very detailed about 3-4 days of their lives. I kept waiting for her to get moody from hunger as in, "How can I love you? I'm so goddamn hungry I could eat the ass end of a Buick! Seriously? Is it too much to ask for a sleeve of crackers?" But that's romance novels for you, superseding reality at ever turn.
