OK, this is the 3rd boring ho-hum HP I've read this week and it did not hold my interest... where is the tension and the angst??? Sorry, but I'm going back to Betty Neels again. She knew how to write.

There's a weird little thing that niggles at me about Harlequin Mills&Boons, which is the use of the word 'female' where 'woman' would have been better, IMO. Did 'woman' get over-used and have to be retired, or something? I have no idea whether it's an editorial decision or whether authors have just all decided to do it for themselves, because it's pretty consistent across the HM&B books I've read, this strange, almost clinical 'female' where the word 'woman' would have done. To the poin ...more

This one did not do it for me. I couldn't relate to the H&h. I found the story superficial with no real depth to it. The H was the guardian to the h. He lusted after her since she was 16 - mind you, he's many many years older than she is. He restrained himself until right before her 25th birthday and then decided to have a dirty affair with her.

There wasn't ever a real feeling that these two really loved each other. The H is a whore and the h is an idiot. They were just

Tener una obsesión con un tutor es algo interesante. Habia una gran conexion entre ellos, awww senti esa emocion como cuando mi zerrie estaban juntos. Lee es una gran escritora, me encanto el trama y cada uno de los personajes.Ya sabemos debemos estar frente a la muerte para reconocer si amamos o no a alguien

I have no idea what made ne rate it for 4 stars... Honestly, it's probably because I haven't read a good book in quite a while...
So, this wasn't such a great book, considering that all the little secrets and details were revealed within the first five chapters or so, but it was quite enjoyable to read.

Saw that a girl,Sarah, set to inherit from her fathers estate as she turns 25 has fallen in love with Nick who her dad appointed as her quardian. He is the one afraid to give his heart because he doesn't think he is worthy and is jealous of all her boyfriends. So romantic how they do end up coming together

I loved this book until the point where the charade was over, then I only liked it. I'd like to read a book where the charade last so much later in the book. Still, though, great HP.

Me gusto, siempre que leo un personaje así de terco pienso "que se le muera para que entienda el idiota que la ama" y fue algo así xD

I've read this one before under another title and I did think it was pretty good. Especially the dramatic ending. I was glad the heroine never gave up.
