  11.

  12. Oh, this one was high on the angst and I loved it The story is about a marriage of convenience with a little problem The problem is that the heroine Theresa doesn t know that her marriage is fake, and the hero Sandro doesn t know that she doesn t know her father set her up The only thing he wants from his wife is son and the only thing she wants from her husband is love, and neither of them can deliver the above After a year and a half, Theresa is fed up with her miserable, unhappy marriage and [...]


  13. 4 stars Contemporary RomanceThis really sucked me in and I neglected all kinds of household tasks to finish it in nearly one sitting It s a great read with lots of melodrama and angst that makes for an addictive, fast paced romance It reminded me of a very well done Harlequin romance There were some editing errors, and I got confused when the heroine suddenly developed red hair to match her fiery temper when I could have sworn at one point earlier in the book she was described as being a blonde [...]


  14. 4.5 starsWARNING This is going to be a long winded review with a few rants thrown here and there, and will certainly contain some spoilers.I call this my angst done right book Very angsty and very emotionally charged read, which could have been a disaster if it wasn t for the fact that the author did a good job with the characterization and the pacing of the story I read it in one sitting and I was captivated with both Theresa and Sandro s story from start to finish First off, the story Sandro w [...]


  15. This book was so close to being a five star read for me, I almost feel guilty rating it four But five stars is perfection without one iota of changes I d recommend Not the case here But it IS a book I loved, devoured, wished it didn t end so quickly Why this sat on my kindle for months without reading it, I m not sure The book starts out towards the falling out period of a marriage Theresa went into the marriage thinking her husband loved her to find out later it was a contractual thing with her [...]

Where s the tissues 4.5 stars, rounded up to a 5.Decided to clean out my kindle and found this little gem.Wow this book was good It had me so emotional that I didn t know what to think and feel At some stages I was screaming in my head, don t let that bastard touch you and how can you let him touch you As the story progressed I started to soften towards Sandro, but until the end I was very much in agreement with Theresa that she should protect her heart until she knew the truth about everything.

  19. Once I picked this up, I had a hard time putting it down It was really good My heart broke for Theresa and the veil of deceit she lived under Her father was a bad and ruthless man putting his daughters happiness at stake and jeopardizing her life While at first I didn t like Sandro at all, he was a genuine ass, he transformed into an incredible and dedicated man.It was his turnaround that impressed me Believing Theresa well aware of her fathers trickery, he sought to make her life hell No touchi [...]

  21. 3.5 StarsOverall Opinion I had put this off for a while now, and I m not really sure why It might be that I saw such mixed reviews and I thought I might have huge issues with the H like I did in A Ruthless Proposition I did have huge issues with the H He was a jerk of the biggest kind, and I cried at how he made the h feel BUT once things came to light as to certain misconceptions he had about his marriage, I actually sympathized with him and ended up liking him than the h The h irritated me at [...]

  25. This made me break my self imposed reading exile What a angst filled book, almost HP ish, blackmail, a jerk hero, grovel, pretty good all around The heroine loved the hero but didn t know the hero was blackmailed into marrying her, so for eighteen months he is a jerk to her, having sex with her, never kissing her on the lips, insulting her, making her feel like a brood mare, never introducing her to his friends and family, probably cheating on her and asking for a son every time they had sex, an [...]


  26. UPDATING MY REVIEW2013 3 STARS2016 2 STARSI was really torn with my estimation of how to rate this bookDefinitely heroine let the hero work hard to get back to her good grades, hence the stars are only for her super character I did not like the Herohe calls heroine a bitch WOW charmingeven in anger you do not call your significant other that name, its offensive and disrespectful.ere is a line you do not cross, otherwise it becomes an abuse That s what happened here, he called her that once and w [...]
