Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kate Donovan is vacationing in Anguilla after the death of her beloved father. Feeling lost and out of sorts, Kate hopes that having time away with her boyfriend, Evan, will be exactly what she needs to get back on track. What she doesn't expect is Mitchell Wyatt.

Mitchell Wyatt leaves Chicago to travel to Anguilla so he can oversee the building of his home. When he meets a charming red head in a bar after she spills her drink on him, Mitchell is intrigued and wants to know more. After befriending her, he convinces her to have dinner with him.

What follows is a love story that is poignant and romantic. As in most romances, there is certainly no lack of misunderstandings between these two. When Evan finally arrives on the island, Kate is ready to tell him that she has fallen in love with Mitchell. She is unprepared for the information he has regarding Mitchell and who he is. Kate is soon convinced that Mitchell came to Anguilla to single her out and get revenge. She flees the island, leaving Mitchell waiting at a pre-arranged spot, never guessing what lies ahead.

After two years of separation, Kate and Mitchell must unite together to overcome an event that has the potential to be life-altering. It is in this part of the book that Judith McNaught has added to. While I enjoyed the first edition, this special edition really delves into the reunion between Kate and Mitchell and clarifies the misunderstandings that the two had.

There is a small part that is suspense, but it is minute compared to the romance.

I really don't understand the pans the new paperback edition is getting!

Like some others, although I liked the hardcover, I was a bit disappointed with it. But - lucky for us - Ms. McNaught rolled up her sleeves and delivered a true Grand Slam with her revisions!

The new edition is FABULOUS, with a fully fleshed out love story, satisfying explanations, and plenty of tugs at the heartstrings. I read it straight through, it was so good. I can't recommend it highly enough.

By the way - what other author do you know who actually listens to her fans and rewrites a novel? Ms McNaught is definitely 5 stars in my opinion! (Oh - and read the teaser at the back of the book for Can't Take My Eyes Off of You - it's a tearjerker!)

Although reading "Every Breath You Take" is not a total waste of time as it does provide a few hours of mindless entertainment, it is certainly not Judith McNaught at her best, nor even her second best! Ms. McNaught is probably my favorite romance writer. I have read every single novel she has published. Her three dimensional characters, complex, original plots and intelligently written narratives make her work stand out for sheer excellence. However, the characters in "Every Breath You Take" are as flat as cardboard and totally predictable. The storyline is so cliché I am sure I have read numerous versions of same many times over. (Probably on airplanes). This is billed as a romantic suspense (riveting?) novel. There is no suspense whatsoever here. The murder suspect is so obviously the wrong man it is ludicrous that he was even brought in for questioning.

Mitchell Wyatt is a self-made man...sort of...with a lot of help from his anonymous friends. He was brought up to believe that a wealthy American "patron" took an interest in an orphaned baby, (him), and so sent the infant boy to live with a family in Italy when he was just a few months old - room, board and loving care paid for in advance. He was also sent to the best schools and wound up a wealthy hunk of an Alpha male that women of all ages drool over across five continents. Imagine his surprise when William Wyatt, blue-blooded grandson of philanthropist Cecil Wyatt, pays him a visit. It seems that William and Mitchell are half brothers. Just when they are getting acquainted their mutual father takes a dive out the window. Then William disappears. Thus Mitchell stands closer in line to the family fortune. Foul play is suspected - obviously. Ta-da.

Format: Hardcover
First, ANY J. McNaught novel is worth reading, but having read ALL her novels, I give this a mediocre rating. I liked the characters and the romance part between Kate and Mitchell is GOOD. But the first 4 chapters seemed choppy -couldn't get a handle on personalities - I thought at first that this was going to be another typical romantic suspense novel - but surprise- there is NO suspense - this is just a romance novel. (Which is fine, but misleading when you read the cover) The scene with the DA explaining to the police WHY they are tailing Mitchell was contrived (just a way for the author to get us in the know) At least half of the book is the meeting and love story with Kate and Mitchell. That part is excellent, but the reason they "broke" up?? Too predictable - why can't characters in love ever TRUST each other?? All could have been explained so easily - instead it takes 3 years before they get back together. (I guess that's how you keep the story going) And when they DO get together, it's too short, too fast. I thought Kate and Mitchell's characters seemed very similar to Sloan and Noah from Night Whispers (Good romance there, too - I love Noah!) But STILL, despite all, McNaught is the best at capturing feelings - you always like her characters, no matter what storyline or setting she gives you.
