    Each story was full of ridiculously older men insulting pathetic women who lack self confidence and claim to "love" them. I have read many Diana Palmer novels and each one limits it's heroine's character to some sad, lovesick puppy dog- willing to take any sort of abuse from these "men" as long as they apologize and say "I love you" in the end. Not about that.

    I was dissapointed

    The first story, was frustrating. How can you go from being a self professed 'woman hater' who has hang-ups about his mother because she had an affair and you were the result to falling in love right away? Give me a break. He was raised in a loving home and included in his family! Get over it! Or move the heck out. To be grown and hated women, but to find a girl and within 3 months decide to marry her. She was a beanhead! Already had a bad marriage, and rushed right into another. Geeze! Harden was so gun-ho to get her to meet his family, then treats her horribly! Treats his mother even worse. Dr. Phil, 'You can tell how you will be treated by how he treats his mother.' DU! He was verbally & emotionally abusive! Sure, it all worked out in the end, but jeeze! The second story 'Evan' started out with almost a 20 year age difference. I just couldn't read it. A grown man has no business with a 19 year old girl! I started the third story and just stopped reading it as it was once again degrading to women. (My opinion)

    Palmer Fans Only

    I've read the first two reviews and decided I needed to put my own opinion out there. First, Palmer is a best selling author. Don't let my opinion or the opinions before mine sway your judgment. I agree that the books have a huge difference in age, but you have to be open-minded about things. In reality there are many of couples who are together regardless of the age differences. Second, if you really are a fan of Palmer, you know that most of Palmer's books have a hero who is older then the heroine. Yes, it does have some sad things in it, but it all works out in the end. I also agree that the heroines are stereotypical but Palmer really writes about things that most people can relate too. All women, pathetic or not, have forgiven men and give them more then a second chance. There is no need to put Palmer on blast because she writes the way she write. I mean she gets money for it whether you like her stories or not. I'm just saying that if you don't have an opened mind about her story topics or ideas, of course you wouldn't like them. I have read over 30 of her books and have never found one I don't like, this one included. I would definitely recommend this book if you are a Palmer fan.
