Top international reviews
characters,this book kept me engrossed from start to finish.
3-star rating because:
(1) Add 1 star: I did enjoy certain aspects of the plot despite knowing what was going to happen. It was different to read about a heroine who was initially struggling financially. And the "threat" that happens to come in the form of her father, as opposed to an ex-girlfriend, or a crazy step-sister, or just some crazy woman who decides she wants a married man.
(2) Subtract 1 star: Even though I enjoyed the story, it was still very typical Helen Bianchin which means that you know exactly what's going to happen so there's ZERO originality.
(3) Add 1 star: Despite the zero originality, I actually like this formula that Helen Bianchin uses. If you've read her books before, you know that the couple, once married (or even before if the engagement is long-standing) move quickly into intimacy and it's not awkward. It's a refreshing change from the virgin constantly crying "wolf" or playing hot and cold. Hot in bed, cold in the relationship.
(4) Add 1 star: much less of the IMO unnecessary use of clothing, food, and house, and furnishings description that this author often overuses. That, more than the reusing of the same plot, really turns me off this author's books. Here, there was much less of that.
(5) Add 1 star: just because I did enjoy this overall.
