it was amazing

First of all, apparently this book has two titles. The Society Wife and also Spanish Aristocrat, Forced Bride. That being said, on with the review..

I was really confused as to give this book 1 star or 5 stars, for these reasons:

-It didn't really fall under "harlequin" status for me, the book was dark and scary at some points.

-The hero was a total douche. I mean he literally beat down the heroine and to me all the verbal and emotional abuse was over the top and too much.

-The storyline was just too cruel and didn't follow other "harlequins". I was really confused and it felt so twisted reading this novel. I can't figure out if I should be proud the author was that dark or be ashamed because of the injustice and abuse this book promotes. I certainly wouldn't want my daughter when she is a teenager reading it. I wouldn't want her to think it's alright for a man to beat you down.

So once again, this book is controversial news and I am on the fence, totally. If any man treated me the way hero treats the heroine, he wouldn't have any private parts left, I'd take a meat grinder to them!
