This review is from: Full House (Max Holt No. 1) (Mass Market Paperback)
This was one of the most awful books I've ever read, and I can't believe it came from the same author who brings us the Stephanie Plum series.
Even after finishing the book, I have absolutely no idea why a charming playboy millionaire fell in love with a divorced schoolteacher with two small children. One day Billie shows up to take polo lessons, then suddenly Nick's got his cousin moving in with her, he's in love with her, and they're talking marriage. There was no development of the relationship at all. And since the two characters hopped into bed together so early in the book, there was no buildup -- the rest of the book seemed like filler until the "big climax," which was about as predictable as I've ever come across, since it was obvious who the bad guy was the minute I first saw their name appear in the book.
The book was also poorly edited -- Nick was referred to as Neil during one paragraph, Billie's son Joel went for two or three pages being called Joey, and the lady who sold Billie her wedding dress was introduced as Emma, then became Ida in the next paragraph.
Romance is obviously not this writer's forte, nor is proofing and editing. She really should spend her time fine-tuning her Stephanie Plum series, which is starting to become repetitious and stagnant, rather than cashing in on her name putting out garbage like this to pad her bank account.
