Like most Harlequin presents the author can only jam so much into the 185 pages allotted. Unfortunately for this book there just wasn't enough room for the back story, the couple meeting again and the reconciliation.
Paige is forced into a "Fake" Marriage to save her families struggling company. Nick Destry comes to the rescue. He makes certain that she does not forget that this is a marriage in name only.
The story starts after the couple has separated; they have been separated since their honeymoon. Much of the story is told in Paige's memory and the entire story in her point of view. I personally prefer a story that lets me see what the Hero is thinking.
Because the story is completely in Paige's point of view we never quiet see why she suddenly decides to forgive him his atrocious behavior. The reconciliation happens as usual in the last 20 pages but we are thrown another twist, which is never completely resolved. They simply seem to through it under the rug.
Ms Craven's story is a great writer and you feel for Paige's plight. But she needed at least another couple of chapters to end the book in a way that would have justified it all.
