Take what I say about this book with a pinch of salt because beyond reading the odd gothic classic I don't read romances.
This was an easy gentle read with characters whose secrets are revealed bit by bit as the story progresses. There is a fair amount of muscle admiration going on equaled only by the frequent passionate kissing sessions. Not really my thing. I'm not averse to a bit of romance but I generally enjoy it if it is part of a story rather than the romance being the story. The writing was unpretentious and never tries to be anything other than a light romance. I did quite like Betsy though and if you never got past chapter one you probably now believe I'm completely bonkers. If you like books about young lovers who have to overcome an obstacle course of misunderstandings, bad luck and the odd snake in the grass, then you'll probably like this.
