Silly things happen between the sex scenes!!!
The events are unbelievable, the characters are cliched, and the dialogue is REALLY silly! I cannot imagine anyone actually thinking or speaking those sentences! Everything seems like a bunch of fluff to link together the steamy sex scenes! Clearly, the story took a literal backseat here!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Discombobulated and not worth your money
Dodd's historicals have been going down the tube. Nonetheless, I've liked her recent contemporary romances and was intrigued by the the story premise and the 'teaser' chapter that was presented before the release of this title. I bought it only to find out that Dodd's newer contemporaries are getting just as sloppy as the historical ones. The main characters slip into sexual scenes before the story has even developed yet there is little or no chemistry jumping off the pages. The rest of the cast are only that, a cast. They don't seem lifelike, the villains don't seem real and what is Sam doing back in the end of the story for a half a page but as possible set up to a (bad) sequel? Who is really writing this? Not the same Dodd as before surely. Maybe she retired and passed the laptop to a ghost writer? If not, maybe she should . . . . Borrow this book at the library if you absolutely must read it. I personally felt it wasn't worth the money and it certainly isn't worth my precious reading time . . .Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
