If you enjoy immature sniping back and forth between people old enough to know better then this book is for you. He was a crude boor who cheated on his family and best friend and she was an obnoxious, childish shrew. No thanks...glad I got this one from the library. I actually came to the nook pg to check out reviews about six chapters in because it was that bad. Used to love Robards in high school but going back as an adult to read her books has been disappointing

    Frankenstein???,

    The premise was great and the book started out good, but-----Neither of the main characters were particularly likeable. He was crude & obnoxious and she did some pretty stupid things. And if she had called him Frankenstein one more time I would have screamed! However, this doesn't stop me from being a Robards fan, you can't hit a home run every time

    Okay, but not great

    This was a good book as far as action goes. The characters were well developed, but I always felt a darkness about them. Like they were both portrayed as some sort of misfits in society and, more importantly, to each other. Almost to the end the heroine refers to the hero as Frankenstein. First, because he was badly beaten before they meet, (which is understandable) and second, just because she finds him to be unhandsome. Once the bruises and swelling faded, I kept hoping for her revelation in finding him attractive, which she does. Only his muscular body, still not his face. And he¿s described to smell terrible from body odor and kerosene from the beginning, which is never remedied. I guess we¿re just supposed to have a very strong belief in love being blind. Every time they were intimate I had trouble suppressing my thoughts of how terrible they must smell and look. The action keeps the reader interested in finishing the book, even though I knew exactly who not to trust from the beginning. And after the tenth chapter I was ready to stop reading and just putting the book in my ¿soon to be swapped¿ pile. This is my second experience with this author. I previously read ¿Wild Orchids,¿ which I felt the same way about. I only read this one because the author was recommended by a sales clerk at a book swap so I bought 3 by her, and am determined to get through them, so I don¿t feel like I totally wasted my money. And what annoys me the most is the redundancy of the characters ¿feelings.¿ I continued saying to myself ¿Alright, I get it. She¿s scared.¿ It¿s unfathomable how many ways the author finds to say the same thing in different ways! I¿m Giving this book 3 stars only because after all that annoys me, it¿s not half bad. I did finish it after all¿
