I enjoyed this book. It is well written, with good characters, some nice chemistry, and an interesting plot. This particular revenge-style plot has been done over and over again, and I find there conquesst nothing new don in this book. And as a result, the whole book just kind of felt very flat, and the ending was rushed and lacked emphasis.
This is an OK read; well crafted, but cnoquest.

As it is, I skimmed a good minority of it. Ridiculous and ridiculously boring. Dull and flat, the story made no sense. The behavior of all the characters was off for the beginning: Then the plot segues into some sort of friends with benefits arrangement that was j Add this to the list of books which would never have been finished did I not desperately need it for a challenge.

Like I said, but for the challenge this one would have been DNF. Oct 25, Rebecca rated it really liked it. This book was a fantastic read! I really, really enjoyed it!
The characters worked extremely well together, ‘Laura’ and ‘Jake’along with Laura’s mother, father and brother! The plot line was exceptional, not the typical story line that you come to expect in romantic books these days! The only downside to this book was that it wasn’t longer! It should have been a huge book, I would have loved to read more daryc the relationship between this too! Aug 21, Bridie Coleman rated it really liked it. Not too sure what I really thought of this to be honest! Have read better books by Emma.
Jun 23, Triada rated it did not like it Shelves: If she sees Jake as a vibrator. Of innocent, she doesn’t have a ONE hair Another “fantastic” synopsis, yes. She seems to just think and emms about sex. Sex, sex, sex, sex Her conversations with relatives revolve around the good sex she has with Jake Sex, sex and more sex. It seems to be the only thing in his head. De inocente no tiene ni un pelo.
