Please note that this book is at least the third in a series. I didn't read the first two but I can only assume it would have helped this book.
Miranda Lee has a really good writing style and I generally enjoy her books, so I bought this book assuming it couldn't be that bad.
Megan and James were married but right after she'd miscarried her baby she finds out that her husband had deliberately gotten her pregnant and married her all so he could have children, and he didn't really love his wife at all.
Personally this book is full of things that aren't my cup of tea when it comes to these kinds of books.
By page 56 I was already annoyed with the hero, having learned through his own thoughts that he didn't love her and felt guilty when he told her all the time that he did. That all he wanted was children from her and even though she'd miscarried he wanted to try to get more as soon as possible. He also made comparisons between her and his ex-wife in bed, sometimes during intercourse that were not in his new wife's favor.
Needless to say I was ready to throw this book away but I still pushed through figuring there would be hope to make this a really good book.
Instead the entire middle of the book read like a highly edited erotica. The last quarter of the book I had no emotional attachments to any of the characters. Quite frankly I really didn't care if they stayed apart or got back together because even though I was 'told' they were tormented, they really didn't strike me as being that upset or involved in their own problems.
So while I wound up not hating the book, I didn't particularly like it either.
It's possible that reading the other two would have made this book better for me. Despite the fact that I didn't like this one very much I am still considering reading the first two, if slightly more hesitantly.
