You had me at naked handstand...
11 August 2018
Bought the book based on the blurb alone, because there is nothing funnier than a man's dangly bits, especially if they are upside down. Final review to follow.
Post purchase review - angsty disappointment.
First the blurb is deceptive. It implies they are part time lovers who have a marriage of convenience. Like many marriage of convenience plot lines, the reasons pretty weak but anyone who has read more than 3 novels of this type knows that going into it.
The heroine is annoyoying. She's constantly reminiscing about moments in her life that seem better than now and comes across as a much older person, more like a bitter 50 year old divorcee than a hot shot ad exec. The pacing of the book is also vey slow, the Part time Lover doesn't even get a kiss until about 28% of the book.
Overall, I'm disappointed. I was expecting a fun romp, after all it did start with a large naked Danish exhibitionist on a boat dock but it seems as though the blurb and the first chapter were written by a different person to the rest of the book.
As a reader... I wanted the first author back.
