4 Stars! ~ Diana is a young woman whose determination and hard work has achieved professional success. Having grown up abandoned in the foster care system, she's isolated herself emotionally from everyone around her. She's witty and enthusiastic, and shows caring towards others, but as soon as someone tries to cross one of her boundary lines she instinctively pulls herself back. Alex is a man driven to succeed and having taken over a company on the brink of bankruptcy, he built up a business that soon had few rivals. When Diana hires on as Alex's right hand person, she's overwhelmed with his passionate approach to everything in his life. They work well together, finding a level of camaraderie that quickly sparks into a very strong attraction. Alex tries to act on this attraction but is shocked to find Diana doesn't believe in relationships and has no desire to become involved with anyone. Diana's resolve to remain aloof falters though when a ruthless rival attempts to destroy everything Alex has worked so hard for.
This is Ms. Carpenter's debut with Harlequin and though a little rough around the edges, she weaves a very compelling love story. She has a unique voice and remarkable talent for creating passionate dynamic personalities. Ms. Carpenter also has a delightful sense of humour that breathes life into her characters and makes the witty banter a pleasure to read. I thoroughly enjoyed Alex and Diana's story.
I did not like it!
The plot was good and it was fairly well written!
But I did not like the characters!
It was written in the 80's!
It should have stayed there!
More importantly, the author used way too many exclamation points!
I did not know you could "mutter" something, and end it in an exclamatory statement!
Even when people talked to themselves, they used exclamation points!
I felt like I was being yelled at through the whole book!
It was really annoying!
Would I recommend this book? Probably, but I hope the author finds a good editor to fix these minor problems.
at the first opportunity and get another job. Presumably she finds him appealing and loves her job. I am so glad Thea Harrison got this out of her system and learned how to write and has since giving us some terrific male characters, not this turkey.
There's a big hole in character development. We know little about Alex's family and his upbringing. His parents are mentioned, his Mom makes the meal for the picnic, but that's it. We know Diana was an orphan and had a tough time in foster homes, but I wanted to know more about how she became so strong. That being said, it infuriated me that the author had her fall for Alicia's stunt at the party. For someone so smart and always relying on herself- she would have seen that coming a mile away and known what Alicia was upto. I kept expecting her not to fall for the ploy. OUR Diana in the story never would've been so stupid to fall for Alicia's games.
Then there's continuity. That was pretty good. My only challenge in the story was I find it hard to believe that even someone who lacks social skills and guarded based on their upbringing in foster homes should try to get out of a moving car during a serious rain storm. Really? Diana never apologizes to Alex for almost having killed them both based on her stupidity of not wanting to let him explain what Alicia was really upto. I find it hard to believe a person of Alex Mason's calibre would want to build a life with someone who can't admit they were wrong, and nearly killed him.
For that I give the story 2 stars because it just didn't make good sense, and wasn't believable in 50% of the book. I kept reading hoping it would turn at some point, but it never did. The editing was a breath of fresh air as there were minimal typos. Cheers to a good effort. Better luck with the next one...

This book was too predictable from the beginning. Boy meets girl, they share, they fight, they make up. The main lady sounds more bi polar than from a foster home.Published 20 months ago by Karen J.
