1. how could he have broken her heart when he left town and they had only gone to 1(one) high school dance together?
2. The reason for not wanting to be with him (a promise she made to her dead husband) was lame.
3. They didnt use any protection because she thought she was barren (what about std's)
4. And lastly.....who the hell childishly turns down a proposal from someone you LOVE without telling the person why?
I did not enjoy this book and wojuld not recommend it.
I absolutely HATE it when the heroine tells the hero to take a flying leap and then the next day she is puzzled because he doesn't call. REALLY? I thought it was rather amazing that the promises she made and felt duty bound to keep were the ones that seemed to serve her most of all. The ones she broke were to the woman that was like a mother to her, doing damage that could never be repaired but they would get over it in time, like next week. Her high sense of purpose seem to come in to play when it suited her needs.
I am 77% through with the book and I am so tempted to just exit out and move on I am so sick of her. Seems she just creates one drama after another and they all involve stuff that she has absolutely no control over. Her husband dies in an accident and she feels guilty because the town has no hospital or local doctor. Course, he grew up in this doctor less town so you have to wonder what he was thinking. But then she beats herself up on a regular basis because there was no doctor. Of course, the fact that there never had been a doctor in this town doesn't seem to matter. Just doesn't make any sense except to play into her drama.
I really want more for the hero than this chick. I just don't see what keeps him hanging on!!!
*** spoiler alert ***
How does the story start? Hot senior asks freshman tomboy to the prom. First kiss for the girl. Awesome Chemistry. But boy leaves town to be a doctor. Sounds good up to this point, right?
Seventeen years later, boy-turned-doctor comes back. Meets girl again. Now a young widow mechanic. Girl still loves boy. Boy just wants sex for now. The chemistry is boiling hot, after all. So they go out a couple of times. Except girl runs hot and cold. Hot with passion. Then cold when guilt sets in.
And that's where the stupid plot comes in --- the girl'a reasons for guilt. There's the promise to her husband to never sell the mineral rights to her land to boy's family because of an old feud; H and h decide to do some research on the feud (duh); turns out reason for feud is stupid. Ok. Issue resolved. Next. Now girl worries about boy leaving again. Initially, she decides carpe diem. The not. Then switch again. Then not. Geez, even politicians don't flip-flop like this. But when boy finds a reason to stay, now girl worries about whether boy wants her. Then boy asks her to marry him coz he now realizes he loves her. But girl says no because she can't have kids? Apparently, first husband had wanted kids but failed. Boy proposes fertility test. Does she say yes? No! I mean, if you really love somebody, can't you be bothered enough to take a silly test? No! They have been doing it for months and she hasn't gotten pregnant! What is this? The stone ages? I mean really! Is this teenage fiction? Sounds like it. Did h think that if she was fertile, she should be pregnant immediately? WTF? H proposes adoption. He loves her more than kids. Does she say yes? No! Because now she fears disappointing him! Duh!!! What if he was infertile? Would she say no too? And then she feels guilt again because she never loved her husband the way she loves H! Ugh! This guilt is never-ending!!!
I always thought that the way characters think in novels somehow reflect the author's own thought process. I mean, there must be, right? I'm not saying that if there's a megalomaniac character, the author thinks that way. No, that's not what I mean. And this book is not about espionage anyway. It's a contemporary love story. After all, the author has to fabricate the characters' thought process based on something, right? So anyway, if this is how the author thinks in real life, she must be 12. On the other hand, that's an insult to my 12-year old niece coz she is more rational than the way h thinks.
No wonder this book is free. It's too stupid to read. I actually felt my brain cells deteriorate just trying to understand the stupid heroine. At least, the boy is likable. And his motivations understandable. Nearly relatable - especially that feeling of being strangled in a small town. But the girl is just TSTL.
