The storyline is a fairly predictable one - when a man and woman have "meet cute" in a lingerie shop, it's not hard to guess where the story's going. It drags a little in places - there's a fine line between suspense and "Oh, get on with it!", and Gaddy oversteps the mark more than once. It's a fairly short story, well under 200 print pages, so managing to make it drag is some kind of achievement!
There are some dreadfully cliched or just plain dreadful bits of writing. One of my least favourites:
"The word steamrollered through Gabrielle's mind as a double load of cinder blocks fell on her chest."
Mixed metaphors and more than a little purple prose there! Gaddy also has the annoying habit of misusing the word literally... The writing would be much stronger if it didn't feel that the author was just trying too hard a lot of the time.
On the other hand there are also some nice moments, and her dialogue is generally sparky and realistic - the exchanges between Gabrielle and Devlin were the strongest part of the book for me. Their banter, flirtation and chemistry were ably portrayed, and they have a few genuinely funny moments which always adds to the realism of a relationship.
Avid readers of romance will probably enjoy this, but it's not about to win any awards for originality, and personally I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else unless it is offered for free again.

It would have been a great story if writers would stop trying to tell us how people act in bed all the time. Heck, maybe they should warn people that they are promoting porn. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Irene E. Klein
I don't read romance novels very often and this book is why. Thinly drawn characters, weak plot lines, and a predictable ending. Read morePublished on November 15, 2012 by Ames
A delightful and sexy category romance. It's good to see so many of these classic romances back in print. I'm looking forward to Ms. Gaddy's next one.Published on August 30, 2011 by P. Van Wie
