This book does not even deserve 1 star.

Jenna and Ross Grantham have been divorced for two years. After she had a miscarriage, he had an affair. Now Jenna is the matron of honour for her cousin's wedding, and Ross is the best man.

I normally like stories involving broken marriages being reconciled, but this was awful. Jenna finds out that Ross only slept with the other woman once, and that's enough for her to forgive him, accept all the blame on herself, and agree to marry him again. Yuck. Ross' e

Normally I really don't mind this author's books, but this was an absolute waste of time. I'm an insomniac and this was one of those books I wasted a whole two hours I'd have spent reading something else! it was also one of those books that leave you depressed when you're done reading and utterly hopeless on the gullibility of some women.
like most Mills and Boons, the blame on the marriage's failure was put on the heroine. like WTF??! She wasn't the one who CHEATED on her spouse. The hero (well

Shelves: 3-star-good, hq
A realistic look at the breakdown of a marriage.

I could understand why this book has mixed reviews. There is a thread of realism that you don't read every day in a HQ. The H comes across as a somewhat insecure man. He loves the h and he translates that into giving her whatever she wants while burying his own emotions. The h has a very specific dream (house, husband, 2.5 kids). And she presues this without caring about the H feelings. (view spoiler)

Gah, the hero was a slut. I just need to put that out there! I couldn't believe how he acted and that the heroine even thought about taking him back. It was sad too cause how he confronted the heroine about what a fail their marriage was, he made it sound like cheating on the heroine with another woman was his fault. Yeahhh, I wanted to punt him..

i'm usually a great fan of sara craven. unfortunately here, she totally lost it. the book was plain boring and the hero seemed like a cold fish
Despite the typically absurdist plot that governs such stories, there was a streak of realism in this novel that I appreciated. Sure, the hero, Ross, does cheat on the heroine, Jenna, and it's discussed fleetingly and swept aside a tad too quickly in the denouement, but I'm wise enough that such things happen more often than not and the hero had enough self-awareness and shame to be believable. I think Craven gave them the right amount of physical and emotional torment to justify them getting ba ...more

This is by far her worst book in my opinion!
This book has been one of the worst romance book I ever read. The hero was awful! I hate him! He didn't deserve the heroine. Poor girl :(
For books like this is why stopped to read this author. I still love her, she was one of my first Harlequin authors in 2007, but nowadays when I pick up a book by her I skimmed them very carefully :D

I have got to stop taking these books personally. Even at the really weird and out of left field end, where he talks about her best friends "beautiful" and "spectacular" naked body looking "amazing" spread naked over his bed. Even when he says said best friend was a "spectacular lay", and this is at the end, after they had "made up". Even then. I really need to stop using quotation marks too, but her spectacular nude and amazing body made me do it, like how the heroine made him cheat. But, serio ...more

I think it was the most different book that I've ever read from Sara Craven.I usually don't like a book that is full of inner thoughts, but this one an exception for me... I could really share the same feelings as the heroine. Both the H and h committed huge mistakes in the marriage. The H slept with other woman and the h got pregnant on purpose so she could hold the H, of course the Hero's betrayal was the most painful.

There is a saying that my mom likes to say that is "se melhorar estraga", an

This was a case of like attracting like; both selfish, self-centered and immature, with the hero having the advantage of age and therefore sharper weapons to maim with. Ugly relationship, ugly marriage, which will result in two bitter and malicious old people. I do predict this marriage will last; once a man finds a woman who allows him have his cake and eat it he knows his set, and she will end up a vicious, neurotic, insecure mess...sad, like real life.
