A HQN mini w/ an apt title. Finn is a 6-5, blue-eyed Irish-Italian traffic stopper (KL must be partial ‘cuz it’s the 2nd book featuring a hero w/ the same distinguished traits). It was luv & lust @ 1st sight the moment he met Adam’s (his son from previous marriage) nursery teacher. He asked Maeve for a divorce so he can pursue Emily, a 5-2, shy, red-haired looker. She was smitten w/ him too but was wary, ‘cuz she thought he’s on a rebound. It’s their 3rd wedding anniversary now & Emily i ...more

He has a very close relationship with ex-wife so much that he forgets their anniversary because he's sipping champagne with the ex. The current wife has reason to feel insecure because he spends more time with his ex-wife than with her.
I think the story is kind of silly and the motivations of the hero a little dumb. The relationship with the heroine was based only on sex he didn't trust or opened with her.
If he had trusted her since the beginning of the relationship he would have avoided a lot o

I read book a while ago and came across it again. After reading it I remember why I wanted to throw my iPad across the room. The H, may not have slept with his ex wife but to me still cheated. Did he spent ample amount of time with other women.. YES, did he have intimate conversations with OW? .... YES, did he kiss her??? YES, did he hug her/ hold her?? .... YES. so the only thing missing from this equation is the sex part. So yes in my book he has been cheating on the h for the entire length of ...more

Sorry, but there was just TOO much crammed in here to even say this was a short story much less a novella. Maybe with another 100 pages this would have been good, but the characters just came off as manic instead.

plot concept was fine but this was a poorly written story - no way to sugar coat it. No heat between H/h, she is a yelling at him over his ex and in the middle of it they grin at each other ??? - absolutely no flow to what should have been highly emotional situation.

Though lacking much authentic Welsh blood, Kim Lawrence comes from English-Irish stock. She was born and brought up in North Wales. She returned there when she married, and her sons were both born on Anglesey, an island off the coast. Though not isolated, Anglesey is a little off the beaten track, but lively Dublin, which Kim loves, is only a short ferry ride away. Today they live on the farm her ...more
