This review is from: The Jet-Set Seduction (Mass Market Paperback)
Heroine tells wealthy businessman Hero from the get-go that they can't be in a relationship because she doesn't do relationships. Hero is adamant about changing her mind and wants her to give him a chance to prove her wrong. She agrees and puts him through a series of tests to prove him wrong. They meet at various locations throughout Europe and New York in between their busy work schedules. Hero's perseverance in continuing to pursue her despite her many resistances push her to show more of herself to him.
Reads more like a Silhouette romance than an HP. The first part of the book's title is correct. This book is about Hero & heroine's jet-setting around Europe to meet for their various dates. It showed how wealthy these 2 are to be able to do that at short-notice. The "seduction" part of the book's title is not so true though. Hero wasn't doing much seducing. He was too busy trying to figure out reluctant heroine and getting her to spend some time with him. She didn't give him much time with her during their various meetings and kept on warning him away from her. I think her resistance to him was new and that's a big part of his attraction towards her. She was a big mystery and challenge that he wanted to conquer. But he ended up caring about her as she slowly revealed why she was very anti-commitment.
Hero was a psychologically healthier person who sympathized with heroine's screwed-up upbringing and came to love her warts and all. Heroine let go of her defenses and started trusting Hero because he stood by her no matter how hard she made it for him to get to know her. His patience and steadfastness ultimately won her trust. The romance was touching but all their jet-setting and her tests got in the way of the emotional flow of the book. The sexual chemistry and sex scenes were tame. The sexiest part of this book was the cover.
