    Oh no, not another one!

    It seems lately when I send a review that I've read a different book than everyone else. I found the female lead in this book unsympathetic and the male lead a bit of a wimp. Torie has been with Brett for four years. The last three, they¿ve been living together in ¿his¿ apartment. In Torie¿s mind nothing is theirs or even hers. Everything is Brett¿s. Brett¿s bed, Brett¿s chair, Brett¿s bedroom. Speaks of a lack of commitment or permanence on her part. Torie keeps simply disappearing from Brett¿s life with no warning and rarely even leaves a note. She never bothers to tell him where she is and he has no way to get hold of her in an emergency. Jeez he could be dead and buried for all she knows. Occasionally, she might send a postcard, letter or leave a message on his answering machine. On very rare occasions he actually gets to speak to her! She`d be gone 6 or 8 weeks, stroll back in, and never tell him where she was, what she was doing or if she¿d been with someone else. Or not. Yet Torie makes Brett constantly promise he¿ll never leave her. She has a problem because of being left in her childhood. Why then would she constantly hurt the man she cares about by doing the same to him? Probably because she knows she can. Yes, she had horrible, horrible things happen to her in her childhood and they needed to be worked out. But Torie wasn't interested in getting help. If she¿d really cared about Brett she would have broken it off with him completely so he¿d have a chance for a life with someone who truly cared about him. She even leaves him shortly after he¿s been shot. She later admits ¿I come and go with no regard for your feelings. I act as if I¿m the only thing in the world that matters.¿ Ya think? But in all fairness Brett let her use him. He took whatever she wanted to give him and was her willing doormat. He spent half his time in fear that he¿ll wake up or come home from work and she¿ll be gone. Yes, he loved her. But after awhile he was just being a fool. There is a line between loving someone and remaining loyal to them and allowing a person to walk all over you. And as a twist on the usual ¿woman apologizing to man for what he¿s done wrong¿, Brett apologizes to Torie for what she does wrong. I just couldn¿t have much respect for either one of these people and by the end I didn¿t really care what happened to them.
