1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't finish it, March 28, 2006
This review is from: Deep, Dark & Dangerous (Paperback)
I usually look forward to Jaid Black's novels, but I couldn't finish this one. The reason? Because I already read it. Basically it's just like the short story she wrote for the Tie Me Up Tie Me Down anthology with the same premise and same characters. Another factor working against it: it's too long. The original story was easier to read because it was so short.

This time around the forced marriage thing and the limited to no rights allowed women really got to me. I had trouble getting into the romance when the woman's whole life is being forcibly taken from her. If this kind of thing works for you, go for it, the first story of this same premise was somewhat interesting, despite it being very frustrating and infuriating. If you've already read the other one, then avoid this one.

I couldn't figure out why the story seemed so familiar! Thanks for the info! I couldn't finish the book either because I felt I had already read it!
