Heartache and the specter of revenge follow when sparring partners spend the night together two days before he weds someone else.
A deliciously romantic romp with a good dose of realism and a twist of mystery.
A clash of wits, more than of wills, drives the love story in this modern day pastiche of 19th-century romance novels by Elizabeth Gaskell (North and South) and Jane Austen.
The main protagonists deal with messy feelings and events that could happen to any of us:
The heroine, a bright young lawyer, confronts choices about career, abortion, and reactions of parents, friends, and men; while he, an alpha male haunted by past relationships, reveals a sensitive, caring side that emerges as he woos the heroine.
This is a realistic love story of two flawed characters
Greg inherited his father’s fortune and company, and Elise is a young girl still in college to be a lawyer.
They meet by chance and she dislikes him from the start. After a while they become friends and there’s an unspoken attraction between them.
Character development was good, but I would have liked a more in depth look into the background of the characters.
It was a bit predictable.
I can say that the book is well edited and written with an easy flow and detailed descriptions.
If you’re looking for a nice, modern, love story with a happy ending, you will enjoy this book.
