This book started out great. After all, I am a sucker for a romance. Lisa is a make-up artist for a magazine company and her boss, Dan has a terrible reputation for being a womanizer and a difficult man to work for. So when Dan approaches Lisa to ask for a favor she is not quite sure how to react. Turns out they both seem to be attracted to one another. Dan isn't as terrible as everyone has made him out to be. Lisa is very shy and timid but seems to stand up for herself if necessary and everything is just fantastic and they could quite possibly live happily ever after but........Lisa is a pain in the butt. This character drove me NUTS!!! I just about couldn't finish the book she got on my nerves so bad.
Twenty percent of the book is about Lisa and Dan getting to know one another. Getting to know the family. A few secrets and then when it all comes out which is very early in the book. The rest is about how Lisa feels she is so independent that she can't be with the man she loves because she will loose that independence if she falls for him. She can't trust him for stupid reasons and when he decides to move on, she is upset and blames him. It was like she didn't want him but she didn't want anyone else to have him either. If this character was real, she would need serious therapy. I have to admit she did learn a few things about herself but wow! It took a whole book.
Some people may like this type of character, I'm sorry I just don't. I feel it was just too much for the storyline and would have made a great short story but too much for a novel.
Until next time, happy reading.
