SPOILER ALERT: There was no sex! Ugh. Like an unfulfilled high schooler. Harumph.
Pros: I really liked how the book began giving the reader a background, which was quite believable. I'm glad the characters actually admitted their attraction. If you've read my other reviews, you know one of my pet peeved is characters that don't talk to each other. The hero was very sweet, kind, compassionate and not arrogant with his money. Very down to earth guy. It made you like him. She was very nice too even though a bit too subservient.
Cons: I'm far from being a feminist, but constantly stating that he was miles above her social class didn't seem romantic. Her eagerness to please was too subservient for my liking. She had to take odd jobs on the side to make ends meet. The explanation why she just didn't get another job the entire time she was in this house was... Decide for yourself. The characters talked to themselves a lot. Weird. Like most books, the continuous whining about their "situation" was a bit much. So, by the time we reached to the end of the book we are just relieved they ended up together. On a personal note, as a doctor there are so many other roads the author could have taken with the characters. So many possibilities that the one road she ended up going down wasn't very fulfilling.
