MY THOUGHTS: Dreadful. I didn’t enjoy anything about this story. Both hero and heroine were very bland. The heroine had no personality and was very passive. There were no sparks, no chemistry or anything between the two. There were a few subplots, one involving the heroine’s younger sister, Rosabelle, and one involving the heroes younger twin brothers. Both of those were much more interesting than anything involving hero and heroine.
By far, the worst part of the book was the hero searching for his…….dog. Probably at least once every five pages his missing dog was discussed and this went on for the entire story and really annoyed me. I don’t ever want a pet to be featured throughout a ROMANCE book.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
