I was only fairly engrossed because I felt the love scenes were too many and too drawn out. I want to read about the characters talking, not just having sex. And that was the crux of my problem with this book. Not enough talking--just way too much jumping the gun and drawing the wrong conclusion. They both did it and it made me want to scream. They would start to talk and one would get offended or misinterpret what the other was saying and would storm out. This is a case of, if they had talked, they would have sorted out their problems. Of course that makes for an awfully short story. Take out the sex and there's not a lot left.
There is a good story here. IMO, it just needed a little refining. And more talking. I would rather read good dialogue from the characters than page after page of sex. That tends to blur a bit after a while. The books I remember the most and reread are the books with heartfelt dialogue between the characters.
Add to that some major editing issues - word choice (something hard to imagine is "surreal, not "so real"); extra characters in a sentence that changed the meaning of the sentence; two characters had the spelling of their names changed...within the same paragraph; and past and present tense were used in the same sentence. These are thing that should be addressed in any junior high writing class.
Overall, the writing needs rescuing - not the "heroine" of the book. Glad that I clicked through the last half quickly so I could avoid most of the writing and just see if there was a twist at the end (there wasn't).
He had been rejected 12 times and the 13th woman who caught his eyes is Miss Cassandra Chambers is betrothed. And to make matters worse, Lord William felt that Cassandra was also attracted to her!
What to do! What to do? Whatever William and Cassandra do, it would be a big scandal. On the other hand, perhaps a scandal is what was needed for them to get married. But, will they take the plunge.
An easy and fast read, "Looking for Love" is a great book to curl up too in these cool fall days that are coming. Due to several sex scenes, the book is PG 15.
Note: Some people have asked me why I give a PG 15 rating. My answer is, the accepted PG 13 is not acceptable since to me a 13-year old is still too young to be subjected to sex scenes. But, the book is still mild enough not be classified as Rated M (for mature audience only)
PG 13 is meant for movies. As movie goers, we all know that a kiss is just a kiss, and though there might be some bedroom scenes, most of the time, you don't see anything although it is implied that something happened. PG 13 (Parental guidance for children 13 and below) is enough as a rating.
But books are different. The author's description is more potent because of the reader's imagination. I had to raise it to PG 15 because I believe that 15-year olds and below need parental guidance to understand what is going on.
I found myself skipping over parts ( read sex scenes etc) just to get to the end. The end was a bit of a disappointment as well, I am assuming the author was hoping to put out a sequal. Unless you are attempting to kill time just skip this one.

I love a good bodice-ripper every once in a while, but general character development is still needed to carry the story. This book doesn't deliver.Published on December 29, 2012 by booklove
