Okay, this is not what I would consider your typical romance. I wont pretend the beginning was a little tedious to read (but the rest made up for that) and in the beginning the characters don¿t seem developed, but once you get into the middle and ending the books is incredible. What makes it different from other romances by most other authors is that this is an example, a true literary one that is, of what I consider unconditional love. Simon is cold at times and harsh, but once Emily knows that she loves him she doesn¿t ever give up showing him her love and trying to uncover the real Simon. This was not a battle of the wills Emily never tried to hide her feelings in fear of being hurt. It was so refreshing to read a book where I wasn¿t constantly frustrated because the main characters were trying not to get hurt by hiding their true feelings for one another. This is a real story, a real romance it makes you wish to be as trusting and open as Emily. It made me realized how guarded most other characters in romances are. Another difference was how the book mostly consisted about Emily and Simon¿s relationship, not some mystery or threat (although one comes up near the end, its brief and revealing and only enhances the real plot of the story, love). A must read and if your like me you'll soon be lining Amanda Quick¿s pockets for more of her books.

Every second of this book made me mad, i did not like how the book treated Emily, who is naive and down right stupid at times. I expect a romance to leave me in another realm of happiness, this one did not. Simon was always so dis-respectful and mean. I had to force myself to keep reading and then immediatly start reading another book. I usually love Amanda Quicks books but this one left me wanting. I wanted Emily to run and i wanted something horrible to happen to simon, i know thats sound bad but, it is the way the book made me feel.

    I Also Recommend:

    Just one more book on the shelf

    Simon wanted the ultimate revenge against the Farhingdon family. By marrying the only daughter he has taken away the gambling addicted family's only source of income. Alhough Simon comes to realize he should look to the future and not dwell on the past and inevitably comes to love Emily I found him highly overbearing and just plain cruel throughout the whole book. Even after numerous times of telling Emily he only married her as part of his revenge plan she still holds on to the notion that Simon really loves her and they are connected on some metaphysical plane. She is mostly naive and all her fantasy talk gets annoying. Unfortunately this book is forgettable.
