This falls under the Why do I do this to myself category.

Did not like it the first time, so I've read it twice now.

i LOVE this book !!! and i think that the introduction/description doesn't do it justice ...

first of all it is an amaaaaaaaazing love story combined with lose and passion ....
and let me just say i LOVE Santiago ! he is Awesome !!!
OK back to the story >>> the story begins with a very broken Lily, she is devastated after a bad marriage that ended in divorce and on top of that she lost her child after being six months pregnant :(

i couldn't help but feel for the Heroins loss ... her husba
A great twist in that the heroine, Lily, was married when she has a holiday affair with the hero, Santiago. He finds out about her husband and was not pleased. Upon her arrival back home her hubby asked for a divorce and from that a point on her life seemed to fall apart.

A year later Santiago and Lily meet each other again through mural friends and the truth about her situation and the reason why she has gone through the changes she has.

It was a heartbreaking story and while I do not condone i

Heroine's travails were compelling, and I found her fine enough, but the tyrannical hero's misogyny and pathological need to control everything around him made this book a wash for me. No amount of handsome makes up for being a cruel creep, IMO.
Good writing style. Great characters--super alpha male, smart heroine who doesn't fall at his feet. Lots of angst. But I didn't feel a love connection--there was lust, remorse, anger, but I didn't get a sense of real love. A good read, but not very romantic.

A fast paced passionate emotional read. The wonderful heartfelt writing just brings the emotion alive so you can feel their pain and love. A great read.

Uno de los problemas de las novelas de Harlequin es que sus finales son tan... asquerosamente cutres. Sé que no puedo pedir más que el típico epílogo que te cuenta lo que pasa un tiempo después pero eso definitivamente me desanima. Esta historia empezó y siguió espléndidamente, con una narración fácil de leer, diálogos entretenidos y suficientes personajes para una historia corta. Obviamente trato de criticar sin ser exigente. Eso sí, desde hoy les confirmo que las sinopsis de este tipo de libro ...more
