    3.5 StarsI don t know why but I didn t love this one I enjoyed the first part but the second part was too much too many events, too many secrets, too many twists, too much everything And the heroine irritated me for some reason Not that she was weak or stupid On the contrary I just couldn t connect with her.I even skimmed the sex scenes Yeah, about that I read a lot of reviews here and oncomplaining about too many sex scenes in this book Seriously Did we read the same book 3.5 StarsI don t know why but I didn t love this one I enjoyed the first part but the second part was too much too many events, too many secrets, too many twists, too much everything And the heroine irritated me for some reason Not that she was weak or stupid On the contrary I just couldn t connect with her.I even skimmed the sex scenes Yeah, about that I read a lot of reviews here and oncomplaining about too many sex scenes in this book Seriously Did we read the same book I hope these people never visit my bookshelves section here on GR They may faint or get sick

    What a twisty, turny tale of what s happening now This was a pretty long bookI listened to the audio, so that made it even longer I was going with four stars, but toward the end, there is a huge twist that I promise you won t see coming And that twist made me rethink the entirety of the story, changing my perception of it altogether I LOVE when that happens It s a big WOW, and one of those things that makes Sandra Brown such a favorite author of mine I wasn t a huge fan of her early What a twisty, turny tale of what s happening now This was a pretty long bookI listened to the audio, so that made it even longer I was going with four stars, but toward the end, there is a huge twist that I promise you won t see coming And that twist made me rethink the entirety of the story, changing my perception of it altogether I LOVE when that happens It s a big WOW, and one of those things that makes Sandra Brown such a favorite author of mine I wasn t a huge fan of her early contemporary romances, but her romantic suspense is usually just flat out kick ass She excels at characterization, her heroes sometimes riding that anti hero line on a razor s edge, her heroines somehow innocent and still tough as nails One thing I thought about while reading this book is how Brown has some fairly defined gender roles, which I love I m old fashioned to a point Yet I don t necessarily see her men as being sexist at all Just very protective, and very much all about utilizing their man powers as they should be used Her women tend to be the nurturers, but they still have high power jobs, and they still have a great sense of self She just writes so good.I ve been a fan of Brown s since I rediscovered my love of reading a few years ago I ve devoured nearly all that she s written, and I think this one tops her best In addition to the writing, the narration for this audiobook was fantastic as well And it s a STAND ALONEcan t beat that Highly recommend
