Categories are like the red-headed step child of Romances, but I read and enjoy quite a few.
Not this one.
Basically, the leads are whiny, sad sacks without reasons sufficient enough for us to forgive them for it. His reason is better than hers, but by the time we get the additional details of his marriage (the very end of the book!), we don't care any more. The female character moves from single career woman to mother of newborn twins with ZERO impact on her life. The nanny evidently works 24/7, and the loving couple can go from work to dinner to a remote cabin in the woods to make love half the night and never call her to let her know! The hero is not the usual dominant stereotype for a Category, but his behaviour in certain scenes comes out predatory. And the last page of the book is a teaser to the next story in the Donovan family, but the author chooses one of the siblings that was barely included - unlike brother Liam, for instance, who made up a lot of this book.
I suggest you pick another read.
