3.5 Stars for a great hero,
This review is from: Her Secret Fantasy: A Novel (Mass Market Paperback)Book two is miles better than one, however, not a GF keeper for me. I was not wholly convinced I could tolerate either Knight brother after reading the first in the 'Spice' trilogy, but Derek has changed personalities. Major Derek Knight was the best part of "HSF" although I felt strongly for Lily as well.
What was missing was the dialogue. The reader was in the heads of the characters more than they were actually communicating. Also, lacking was the taut sensual tension I have grown to anticipate from a GF read. The love scenes were warm but I was left cold. I kept waiting for the big Kama Sutra sex scene I've been expecting from all the teasers and was again disappointed.
Normally, I enjoy the plots where the heroine is already betrothed because it usually induces hero-jealousy. Not in this instance. GF merely glanced upon it. The last 50 pages should have been summed up in an epilogue after the final resolution. I found them completely unnecessary.
That said, would I recommend 'Her Secret Fantasy'? I'd say read everything else by Gaelen Foley first. This series just hasn't been my favorite.
