I finished the book, so 2 stars.

I am addicted to Harlequin Presents but I don't like this new author at all so this is the last book I read from her. I hated the heroine, she did not have any maternal feelings for her innocent unborn twins. She had a cold robot heart! ...more
Torn between 2 and 3 stars. Really loved the prior book in the series but could not enjoy this one fully. Hero Diego is harsh.

1) story itself was a bit disjointed. As if it started in the middle or things would be raised as if they'd been explored before. Perhaps it was just trying to hard to be mysterious, bit that cause a sense of disconnection. One example of this was the dripping out of bits and pieces or the hero and heroine backstory, how they met on the cruise and why they split up...tol

Explosive! Hottt! Feisty! Passionate! A thin line between anger and passion. Nothing they did was normal and soft. Everything from,love to hate to passion was whirlwind and unstable. Perfect group of ingredients to make such a spectacular book! Reminds me of the late 80's early 90s HP....with a dallop of modern romance. ...more

I'm a sucker for second chance romance

i loved it ,enjoyable and angsty

Though both leads had lots of daddy, mommy issues.
They were perfect for eachother.

I loved Kim and Diego

I haven't read the other book in

the i wished the epilogue

was abt kim and diego

What I liked- the angst, the hero and a compelling story.
Unfortunately there were more issues which I didn't like such as- the heroine. She had daddy issues, mommy issues and motherhood issues. She needed therapy not romance. I didn't like that the bad daddy never got drop kicked by the heroine or her sister. The heroine's lack of retribution towards him really had me disliking her. I didn't like the heroine's lack of maternal love toward her unborn twins. I get pushing the envelop when it comes
I read the book after I saw the reviews and I almost believed them.
Personally, I didn't mind the heroine's attitude. Mostly because I prefer a disagreeable woman to any brainless-TSTL-doormat.
They both had unresolved personal issues they needed to deal with
As a romance, it's less than sugary and I liked it.

This author is VERY good at intense emotions. But these characters were just awful and stupid and horrible and the melodrama was dragged out too long. Still, the author's style had me reading until the very end. *shrug* ...more

I received this book from the GoodReads First Reads Program. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Kimberly Stanton is your average, brilliant, and organized CEO of her very own start-up company. Everything is going wonderful until that she discovers that she is pregnant with her husband's baby. Normally this would be fine, but they have been estranged for six years. They met up four weeks ago to sign divorce papers, and things went down a bit differently. Afte

I did not read the first book of the serie.
Hard beginning for me to be pleased with the characters. The h seems to be a cold bitch, with a lot of emotional pb and past issues unresolved. As the H at first. And the mixture of both wasn't appealing in the beginning.
The h stays obtuse a long time along the story, as for the H, he is having some kind of epiphanies, here and there, but keep going back to his old habits, to think that is not worthy of being love, so each time the h is pushing

Talk about angst! I had to read this book in chunks as it got a little intense emotionally.

Both characters were so damaged from their pasts and yet wanted the same thing- for the other to love them as they are- yet couldn't see the forest from the trees so to speak.

Kim was the over achieving perfectionist who used that to cover up a multitude of hurt and pain from her horrible childhood with both parents leaving her with a multitude of issues. On top of that after discovering she's pregnant wit

This book follows Kim Stanton, it's takes place where Olivia Stanton story ended. I enjoyed this book way more than I enjoyed the other one. I laughed and cried on some parts. I felt frustrated with the characters but that made me like this story even more. I'm giving this book a 4 out 5 stars, because even though it was better than the first one. This story does not have an epilogue which is what I what I would have loved to see for both stories. ...more

Companion to a previous Pammi I read - and just as boring. I guess I'm still getting used to the rhythm of her writing, the plot was blah, couldn't warm up to the characters, and the book just went on and on and on. Two Presents in a row - it's almost enough to make me swear off HQPs except I know when they're good they're awesome. Wish I could say that about this one. And it took me 10 days to finish it, too. ...more

"Pammi reverses the usual gender roles with an emotional, protective and tortured hero and a logical, cold and broken heroine who are pursuing a second chance at romance. These characters should probably wear boxing gloves because their battles and subsequent lovemaking are title-worthy." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 1/2 stars ...more

Normally I'm happy when the heroine is a CEO and has some power. But, the dude was an ass who messed with her company and I'm not cool with that. ...more

I didn't enjoy Kim and Diego's story, I couldn't understand Kim and her need to please everyone nor Diego's inconsistencies. ...more

Again, what a strong heroine!! I wish the hero and heroine had fought less but still a worthy read...For all her flaws, I did like the twin in the first book better than this heroine....

One in a run of average mills and boon romances. It was almost exactly what was expected. Just a little bit blah!

Tara Pammi can't remember a moment when she wasn't lost in a book, especially a romance which, for a teenager, was much more exciting than mathematics textbook. Before long, she was hiding romance novels within bigger textbooks, smuggling them into the home through her unsuspecting younger cousin’s school bag, and cycling more than a few miles to her favorite library to borrow more.
