it was amazing
Read from October 18 to 20, 2011

** spoiler alert ** Loved it!

I usually hate this theme, as I find it hard to like a guy who would ruin an innocent person to get back at someone else. But this one had a twist: the heroine figures out the hero's plan for revenge and calls him up on it. He sets aside his plans and pursues her for herself instead. Much better.

This book had me laughing out loud several times. Watching the hero torment Ian (who deserved it!) was almost as much fun as watching the dance of attraction between the hero and heroine.

JAL is such a fun writer--and one of the few who can make the hero doing something as innocent as touching just the back of the heroine's hand an amazingly sensual experience. This book is an example of why this author is an auto-buy for me. If an author can move me to both laughter and tears, then I've gotten my money's worth.

Jill Great review Gemma. I've heard such good things about this and never got to it.

Gemma Well, it took until October, but I finally read my first 5-star for 2011!

Jill You're as miserly as I am with those 5-star ratings. I think I've given maybe 2 this year for new releases.
