I really liked this book. The hero was not nasty to the heroine at all except he didn't realize that he loved her. There is a big grovel scene at the end that was very well done. I liked the whole story. It was well written and made sense. There weren't any of those bits where you were wondering WTF? High drama and a satisfying HP read when you just need to be swept away.

This story was somewhat similar to James' For Pleasure...Or Marriage? (a fav of mine,) but not so much that it's boring. Both feature lovesick, doormat, rich man's mistresses who redeem themselves by eventually growing a spine, and jerk tycoons who also mature.

There were several surprises here, one which I thought very well done, another which was inadequately foreshadowed and came off as pretty implausible. But mostly it was just the sort of Harlequin Presents I love: lots of drama and heartac
Alexeis is bored with his smart gorgeous girlfriend, because she is so pretentious with all her art knowledge and her desire to talk about her job all the time. He’s with her at a party at an art gallery, and she’s at it again, off talking to other pretentious art people about pretentious art. He doesn’t like it. Maybe he needs a girlfriend who will stand silently at his side, and occasionally gaze up at him adoringly? Maybe that waitress? She has really smooth hair and she’s in that tight white ...more

A solid four stars for Julia James. This is my second HP from this author and I am quickly becoming a fan of hers. I really liked the story. Though I wasn't always happy with either the hero or heroines decisions and actions....I have to admit, it added the necessary tension that kept me flipping the pages!

I especially liked that the author gave us so much more than the typical one dimensional view into the characters. For example, The hero was not a ruthless jerk, but he made some truly ruthle

Carrie is a stupid dumb girl. She meets a guy, gets into a car with him, goes to his hotel, sleeps with him then jets off to New York with him for two weeks all in the space of 24 hours - probably less, taking out the shopping spree in between the sex and the flight.
I'm sorry, but to me that's just laughable.
I couldn't bring myself to feel any form of sympathy for her as she brooded.
She annoyed me from the first page to the last.
I can safely say that this is one of the worst book I have ever rea

The worst Harlequin I've read lately. Zero love scenes, zero chemistry and the plot twist was ridiculous.
Started off great but fizzled due to hardly any dialogue from the hero and heroine. It was page after page of only their thoughts, then skip to weeks or months ahead. I love Cinderella stories and love to see the hero spoiling the heroine but you were only told what happened and never really got to see the heroine enjoying the attention. I was very frustrated and eventually bored to tears.
Some interesting twists. I just wish the h hadn't have fallen right back into the hero's arms the minute he tracked her down. I do think he fully recognized his mistake and was truly remorseful, but (as usual) he got her back far too easily.

I think this is one of the worst HP's I have ever read!
It was so awkward, I could hardly go on.
