Review

He was her mate and her nemesis!
She had been young, in awe of the older man who swept her off her feet. He'd lifted her into a bright  world full of glistening new experiences. But now, she found herself  fearful of totally disappearing, becoming nothing more than an extension of her husband. Panic-stricken, Gina ran--three thousand miles away.

David was as resolute to win her  back as she was to shed his influence.  Their war of wills was on. What a shame their sex life held explosive passions so thrilling, Gina feared his soft seductions might weaken her resolve. David counted on it.

It's probably not a good sign for your romance when your hot date begins your relationship with the promise "I'll teach you". He did. Their courtship and marriage was one long series of tips, corrections, and lectures on which organizations to join (or avoid), on how to dress, what to eat, how to fix her hair, how to impress his colleagues, how to be everything but herself. Sometime during their ten year marriage, she grew up and he failed to notice, continuing to treat her like the bewildered 19 year old girl he married and transplanted into a very conservative and uptight academic community. I liked this book for a nice easygoing summer read. There wasn't buckets of angst or terrifying threats to overcome (unless you fear death by lecture about the necessity of sufficient roughage in your diet).

It's something of a cautionary tale on two very mismatched people. He was a 30 year old physics professor and she was a backward 19 years old when they met. She was dazzled by him and he doted on her, seeing a gem that he could polish into the perfect dean's wife. Trouble was, he never stopped trying to polish, reshape, and educate his now mature and increasingly unhappy wife. She had visions of herself ending like her mother, so subsumed by her husband's dominant personality that hers withered away and she simply had nothing left of herself to live for when he died, so she followed him. the pressure has been building for a while and it finally blows at an award dinner when hubby makes one too many comments on what he thought she should have worn. Gotta love a woman who will bash her husband over the head with a tray of tomato aspic at his own banquet and run wailing into the night.

Unwilling Wife by Renee Roszel
Gina Baron had been married for ten years. In that time her handsome husband had started to suck her dry. He told her how to dress, how to wear her hair, what charity work to do or not and more. Gina had been left a lighthouse on the beach all the way across the country and she ran there, away from being the Dean's Wife. To become her own person.

Dr. David Baron had his PH.d but lost his wife. He gave her a month and then went to bring his wife back to Boston. The chore wasn't as easy as he thought. He was a brilliant scholar but found it difficult to find the best way to win his wife back.

This story was unique and a bit of an emotional roller coaster. It wasn't about a couple who fell out of love, but a couple deeply in love with a passionate sex life. Only David thought he was helping his wife and missed the fact that he was slowly strangling her. Definitely a great read.

I know about the feminist movements and the "I am woman - hear me roar" chant, but really have to feel for men like those in this book. Marriage is all about compromise, but in this book, it's all about me, me and me as far as the heroine is concerned. Expecting a man to change completely overnight and give up a job that he loves for her? Seriously???

SPOILER

The heroine's not likeable at all. I hated her attitude, from start to finish. I know that what she wanted was compromise from his husband from the start, but to the extent of making David jealous by using Paul is really childish of her. I mean, hurting a lot of people so that she could get her freedom, is low. I thought that I'd like the book based on the 5 star reviews, but maybe this isn't really my thing. I think the author wanted to make the story light and funny but I was so angry of her, that I didn't enjoy the book. I skipped it til it is interesting; and when it is, it made me want to slap the heroine so hard. I kept on wishing for the hero to leave her be already, but this is a romance book so there is a happy ending for the 2, even losing something the hero loves in the process. Oh Renee, why?

Younger wife has had it with her husband's manipulation of her life. He is controlling and ignores her continued attempts to make decisions for her self, her clothes, her hair, the volunteer work is what he thinks is "best" for her as "his" wife. I especially liked the part when she told him it was impossible to thank him for the yellow roses he sent to her, his favorite color, when she preferred pink roses. But more than that he didn't know that a box of chocolate would have really been the gift for her. She did a lot of growing and he had much to learn.

While a bit on the steamy side, this book raised some interesting questions about marriage. Gina is feeling smothered by her husband who clearly is the dominant person in their marriage. She asked for red plaid luggage and he got her brown leather--more practical, more appropriate. She wants chocolate; he buys her roses. He is into eating healthy; she wants chocolate. When he won't listen to her, she basically runs away from home and then files for divorce. It is not that she hates him; rather she just wants an opportunity to be someone other than his other half. He follows her across the country to try to woo her back, but won't leave her alone. Where does wooing stop and stalking begin? One of the places he tries to woo her is in bed; is that a good idea? If the main place a couple is happy together is in bed, does that mean they should split?

The book is a little different than your average romance novel and while I found some of the scenes improbable, it was an enjoyable read. Grade: B.
