They're so awful that I've gotten this book and taken by her greek boss mixed up...

It is this book that is improbable and not logically sound (even for a trashy romance novel!).

I think I've kind of tortured myself in reading Williams' books because I was hoping that perhaps out of the gazillion books she's written, something would be different. But no... all four male protagonists are exactly the same, the female protagonist, while slightly different, are essentially the same - the way they act

Really, the only thing that saved this book from no stars, or, like, negative stars, was that I ctrl+f'd through the doc and replaced the main characters' names with Tony Stark and Pepper (I would say Potts, but whoops, she never did become important enough to rate a last name!). So instead of a truly horrific romance novel, it became a delightful badfic! That was shockingly IC for a lot of it...

I recently read this book but can't seem to remember much about it. I remember being upset that she never seemed to broach the subjecdt of "so, NOW you want me that I'm slimmer and attractive to you"?

I remembered being bothered with his flippancy towards her feelings-big surprise-regarding working for him. He was such an ogre!

Then it became...I think I've always wanted you and crap, and I was like; so, what were you waiting for? Again, it was okay.

Çooook klasikleşmiş bir ugly betty hikayesiydi ama sevimliydi bazen tanıdık hikayeler okumak ihtiyaç haline gelir ya o zamanlar için ideal bence

¿En verdad soy la primera en agregar la historia a Goodreads? (ni idea de si es la única versión del sitio) ¡Estoy impresionada, jamás me había pasado!

Bueno, ahora me veo obligada a por lo menos, escribir algo: "Los hijos lo serán todo, excepto PEGAMENTO" o algo así es la frase.

Y sobre la autora, me han gustado la mayoría de los protagonistas e historias que he leído de Cathy, definitivamente es una de mis favoritas.

Por otro lado, tengo un amor literario que también se llama Gabriel y también
Glad I didn't buy this book, a friend handed it off to me and now i know why. It's a bit on the unbelievable side. Traveling to a tiny island when you know a hurricane is about to hit it is just downright stupid, but hey, it's fiction. This wasn't a great read, but it did help me kill time while riding the subway and it was free. :)

No bad no good. Has a very good tension. But I need more sexual scenes and more tender. I think is necessary know more about feelings of Gabriel.

For me the book starts out very dull and slow moving.
It was a good story, for me I just had to keep reading it
