My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’ve giving it 5 stars because I picked it up knowing I was going to read a Melanie Milburne book so I couldn’t really fault it for quirks typical of her heroines and a bit of originality pushing the boundary of a typical HQN Presents – plus there were lots of sweet moments deserving this.
This is a typical Melanie Milburne story for her fans. They will love this book- a career driven inexperienced (but non-virgin) heroine who is making it on her own terms in the world. Hooks up with a hero, then starts to question if having a successful career is all is cracked up to be with out love. Then as she falls in love and wants more – like a loving hubby and babies.
There is a very sweet moment in this book that nearly had me in tears. It was so sweet that I thought I’m giving it a 5 star just because of that gesture. Yeah, I’m an emotionally reviewer. It just proved without words by that simple gesture that hero loved the heroine. And the book is littered with a few.
There are a few unresolved issues in the end but I think this is the first of series – which in a weird way may involve Allegra’s stepmother (read the book to find out but I suspect it will as I said Melanie Melbourne pushes boundaries) and also the heroine’s her best friend.
Fans will love it, new readers will get a taste of Melanie Milburne’s typical style and storylines, and regular HP readers will have varying opinions on it.
