This was a fairly simple romantic story of a cold businessman who becomes intrigued by the gutsy fortitude and manipulations of a small town young woman, Emily Harris who bulldozes her way into his office to dissuade him from his forceful tactics to get her to sell her land. He wants her land---she won't sell. He puts on pressure---she outwits him. He's fascinated, amused and attracted to her and for the very first time, feels conflicted about winning. He's never cared how his actions made people feel. All that matters is winning, yet with Emily Harris, he cannot enjoy the inevitable win. She challenges him in ways he's never experienced. She insults him and offends him and it only heightens his excitement. He nor his wealth impress her.
I never connected to either of the main characters because there are no physical character descriptions...ever. I liked Emily's character. I would've liked her more if I knew what she looked like...she's a little innocent but very proud and a straight shooter. She's determined and independent and though polite, doesn't take anything off anyone, especially rudeness. But I didn't connect to her because as I've said, there were no visuals. I didn't care for Asher too much, but then you're not supposed to like him because he's the villain of the story. He admires Emily's intelligence and underestimates her at every turn. She doesn't succumb to his intimidation tactics or manipulations. On and on it goes until the predictable ending comes. It's not a story I'll ever read again.
1.) I liked the strong resistance and the push/pull of the two characters attraction. The author conveyed it so well that when they finally begin to yield and give in, it's not only NOT believable, but it happens too fast; especially for how much hate Emily had for Asher.
2.) Some authors give pages of detailed sex. This author does the opposite...the couple meet and have chemistry, but one fights the attraction, eventually giving in. Then kaBOOM...they drop their clothes, canoodle, cuddle and talk awhile, shower, dress and leave. No details.
3.) There are no physical descriptions of the main characters. None. No ages are given. Ever. Is Emily tall or short? Is she athletically built or petite or curvy? I dunno because Ms. Cardello wouldn't tell me. No height/size, hair color...nothing is ever told to us except the color of Asher's hazel eyes. Personality traits are strong. Physical descriptions are zero. Seriously. Zero.
4.) The important Auction day arrives and Emily is dressed to the nines...in what? A gown? I dunno..we're just told "a dress" that molds her curves. No description...no color...no length..nothing about her shoes or jewelry. Complete disconnect to this major moment.
5.) The marriage proposal was just sad. It's all "I" with Asher. And, not once in this story does he tell her he loves her. He talks about what she's done for him and what he loves about her...but he never says "I love you".
