Recommended to MelissaB by: auntee, holly

I was annoyed with the heroine for not telling the COP hero about the guy stalking her and about keeping her occupation secret when she supposedly was not ashamed of it. She seemed very selfish about those things and I didn't like how she tried so hard to make everything only about the physical because I didn't get the sense that she had real reason for that except for the author to further the plotlines. The star rating got bumped up from a three because the ending was pretty good and because Ben was hot. I did think the physical side of the romance was very nicely written, I just wish Molly would have wised up sooner.

librarygirl I agree about how selfish she came across - it wasn't as if Ben was the type of guy to tell everyone in town. Plus the stalking was sort of important to mention to him IMO.

MelissaB I did enjoy Ben and the other characterizations. If she would have had Molly tell him in a resonable amount of time and had her act less like a commitment phobic man, I would have made this five stars. Oh well, maybe her next book...

I agree about the stalking thing, it made no sense for her not to tell him about the crazy guy.

librarygirl I disliked how Molly pursued him mercilessly even though she knew he wanted to stay out of the town gossip and still wouldn't give him an inch. I enjoyed it in the beginning but as I got closer to the end it was too much! It just didn't seem *that* big of a deal anymore. I thought Ben was fantastic and loved the side characters! I also liked Molly, I thought she was pretty funny! Her selfishness was the only rough spot for me and only because it was drawn out way too long.
