I don't think I have every been so conflicted on rating a book before. Because I thought the beginning was pretty good, the middle weak with all the lies on both ends but the last 100 pages or so? PERFECTION. So I guess I'll give it a 3.5 star rating overall. (I'm not even going to tell you how long it take me to reach that conclusion. Anyways...)

What I liked so much about this book was that we got a chance to see how different Tess and Brenn were after they got married and how they struggled and worked to get back to their "honeymoon" period, you know back when Tess thought Brenn loved her and Brenn thought Tess was a heiress and they didn't have the hurt and guilt on both sides weighing them down. I feel like often in romance novels author's skip that part which is upsetting because that part is so real and so easy to relate to, the realization that the person you thought you were marrying was somewhat of a farce. And can I just say, if the author had made 90% of this book to be taken place in Scotland I probably would have adored it like crazy because once they got to Brenn's ancestral home, this story really took off. Unfortunately, like I said above, that didn't happen until the book was 75% over already. I will say however, that I don't regret this book because I adored the way everything turned out but at the same time, I think the middle could have been better. A lot better. As you can see by this review, still on the fence about this author. I think this is my third book by her and I'm still not sure how I feel about her writing.... actually I just checked and this is my sixth book. And excluding one, all got a average review of about three stars. So I think I'm going to hold off on reading more by her. Unless I stumble across them at work or at used book sales
