Timeline Whiplash Detracted from the Heat 3.5 stars. As always, Gates delivers with the scorching sex scenes, opening with one of hate/revenge sex, but I found this one harder to get into than others I've read. Part of it was time-jumpy - we start with the hate sex, almost on top of her husband's coffin, two years after Lujayn left Jalal (and IMMEDIATELY married his once-best friend?), which was after Jalal and Lujayn had had a secret "thing" going on for four years - and then the story picks up two years after that (the hate sex which resulted in a secret baby). It is (somewhat) easier to believe that the baby could have been hidden, since Lujayn is in America and Jalal is in Azmahar (or sometimes, Zohayd, both fictional Arabian kingdoms), but still... As always, Gates does an excellent job of sprinkling in Arabic phrases and giving the (English) reader the translation. The passion between these two characters carries well throughout the novel, but at the end I didn't care whether Jalal's evil mother interrupted the wedding, and I should have.
A beautiful love story. Very moving. Someone really needs to shoot that mother. Lol
