Mary Calmes! There, I said it! I wasn't going to, but I couldn't hold it in anymore. This book seems to have been whipped up from the Mary Calmes cookbook. You know; take one growly, dickish alpha-male-type and mix with one adorable, naive can-do-no-wrong love interest, add several sassy female characters to taste and voila! You get a passable story with some fairly hot sex and corny, corny, corniness. However, this story seems to have added some extra ingredients that, well, left a bad (worse) taste in my mouth. At some point some stuff happens (the very new couple acquire a ready-made family) and I was just like, what the fuck? So, around 65%, I felt this very strong desire to just... stop reading. The domesticity was more horrifying than entertaining at that point. And I don't know why, but I soldiered on, feeling faintly ill all the while. Anyway, to cut a long story short, this book sucked. It wasn't bad, just unlikely. Too much so for my tastes. If the above-mentioned stuff hadn't happened and the story went in another direction, I probably would've like it more, but as it was just.. no.
