Overall, I think if the hero wasn't so jealous of everything and they had fallen in love a little more reasonably, I would have given it a fourth star.
There are a LOT of characters and they flit in and out of the story; more cameo's than anything and yet they are introduced as important characters, only to disappear.
The story line is plausible, but the paragraph development is disjointed. A few paragraphs on one subject, then suddenly jumping to another which leaves the reader a little confused. More than once I had to go back and reread something because it wasn't clear.
The end of the story though is really weird, and here is where I will cite something directly from the book, so if you don't want to know STOP HERE!!
Near the end of the book, the rescue scene, the hero climbs up to the balcony, only to be followed by his brother and Sister!! How is the sister, in a long gown going to climb anything much less up a building to a balcony. From there the other good guy "leapt" from the other balcony...Seriously!!
The close of the book, everyone loved everyone and all was good...and all unexplained. Just a little to contrived.
I think that this author has a good idea and a good start, but this book could have been so much more had she taken the time to flesh out the characters and story line. Sometimes less is more, but this time less is just less.
The hero, was insipid @ best. He had his moments, but for the most part I didn't care if they were together or not. I enjoyed his best friend and and the sisters. I gave it three stars, because I did complete it, and overall I found it an OK way to pass the time.
Bottom line: What could have been a strong story of revenge leading to love was nothing more than a weak tale punctuated by fairly typical sex scenes between two people whose emotional connection is, at best, illogical and tenuous.
