Hic ummadigim kadar zevkli bir okuma oldu.

Maybe a 2.5 but not higher. The book was slow and boring until the last 120 pages which isn't very good when there are 370. I wouldn't recommend this book. ...more
Şu anda bütün yorumlara canıgönülden katılıyorum.Pek bi beklentim olmadan başlamıştım kitaba.İyikide öyle başlamışım.Vasat bir kitaptı çünkü.Aksi olsaydı hayal kırıklığım daha büyük olurdu.Okunamaz diyemem kitap için ama ben olsam merak ettiğim ve almak istediğim diğer kitaplara yönelirdim.

Allahtan da tek kitap.Seri olsaydı biraz zorlama olarak okunur ve biterdi benim tarafımdan:)

I really enjoyed this debut book from Robyn Dehart. It was a cute story with a touch of intrigue. The dialogue between the H and h was cute, sweet and sometimes touching. Super great H, likeable and realistic h. There were some minor flaws, but a very likeable book.

A sweet love story. As a debut novel there are a few rough spots but overall DeHart's voice is engaging. I fell in love with Derrick and Claudia and enjoyed reading. DeHart navigates the changes in her hero and heroine well. ...more

Por mais clichês e previsíveis que esses romances de banca sejam me divirto muito com eles. Fast food literário kkkk
Derrick é sedutor... muito por sinal. Cláudia é bastante insegura e sem atitude, mas como culpar alguém que só recebeu críticas e nenhum amor? Não dá. Mas ela melhora muito depois. Achei diferente o quesito aparência (a mocinha é cheinha). Derrick fez a "corte" que muitas sonham rsrs.

Maybe a 2.5. The best way to describe this book is muddled. The characters, the plot, the romance, all muddled. I think the story had good bones, and maybe with a different author, or a more developed author, could have been quite strong. Unfortunately this just didn't have it.
The third act picked up slightly, and it would have been better if we'd had some of that intrigue earlier in the book.
Back to Lifeline with this book.

Really enjoyed this book.
Gerçekten beğendim kitabı karakterleri de çok sevdim özellikle tabii Derrick sevilmeyecek gibi değildi:)

Kızımızda bildiğimiz mükemmel çok güzel bayan karakterlerden biri değildi fiziksel kusurları olan(ufak defek kusurlar tabii) bu kusurlarıda bence biraz fazla takmış bir karakterdi ama yinede sevdim hele Derrick'in onun kusurlarını görmeyen hallerine bittim kızımızı çekici olduğuna ikna etmesi biraz zaman alsada sonunda halleşiyorlar:))

kısacası konudan bahsedersem

I cannot rate it because I stopped reading it after few pages.

I like curvy heroines but I have to the draw the line somewhere and "apple-round cheeks with just a hint of an extra chin" is just not the way I wanna picture the leading lady.

Come on romance authors, write about a H with a beer belly. I dare you.

Hard to get interested for the first half of the book but the last half was good. Don't know if I will read anymore from this author. Guess I am getting tired of all the passion overriding a good plot. ...more
