This is a toss up I can find more things that annoyed me than I can say I liked. What I didn't like here we go........I'm amazed that Julia didn't weight four hundred pounds every time they ate she was going back three or four times for more food. James seemed a little lacking as a man he was twenty seven but he came off more like eighteen. Also he had a bad choice of friends one of his "friends" got Julia drunk without her knowing it at her first ball. James realizes this in time and takes her home,but Jame never confronts his "friend" and it seemed like a lame way to give Julia and James alone time. James other "friend" outs them to the newspaper. James was always being called old man by his friends which I found annoying when they were all the same age as far as I could tell. James knows his mother is a viper but when she puts on a act of caring about him he falls for it which causes lots of trouble. I think a smarter man would have known that something was up by the way his mother was acting so different. Louisa the sister he is engaged to doesn't want to marry him and that's easy to see so you think maybe she loves someone else or there might be some mystery but no she just doesn't want to leave mommy yet. I found that to be another let down with this book she had no real reason and just comes across as a little girl not a woman. The last thing is Julia was the one to go after him when it should have been James coming to Julia this is just another way I found James lacking as a man. What I liked......ok let me think...............I liked Julia when she wasn't eating food like she had never seen food EVER. James was very likable also and Louisa was painful shy but likable. The story had a lot of potential just didn't come together to me. First time to read Theresa Romain and I will give her another try before I decide was it just this book or her writing style that I don't like.
