I'm not going to give away any plot spoilers, because discovering the reasons why things happened the way they did was part of the enjoyment for me.
Now, having said that I disagree with the low ratings that a couple of the reviewers have given this book, I must agree that the hero turning up at Amanda's husband's funeral did seem rather 'off' at surface glance. However, this said, he did step in and save her from an attack at said funeral which was heroic of him, especially when she was so despised in the eyes of society at that point. I'm not sure that the other reviewers actually 'got' Jake's level of pain. Mm, he was pretty caustic with some of his remarks to the heroine when she was really at a low point, but that was his defence mechanism. I got that. His introspection allowed me to see that he really wasn't a nasty type - in fact he did some soul-searching because of his behaviour - and his character grew because of it. I think the author made it really bad at points and that just made the really good to come extra special. All up, I think Jake was a very strong character, who had really been torn apart and devastated in fact by his break up with Amanda, and he still loved her (but was afraid of that emotion when he believed her to be the sort of woman who would take advantage of that), but didn't want to love her. But...despite all that, he really was there when she needed him and his belief in her allowed her ultimately to believe in herself.
Amanda...Wow, didn't the author put her through the wringer. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse for her...it did. Then...it did again! OMG. I really felt for her. I felt her pain like it was my pain. And, ouch, some of Jake's comments reeeeeally hurt. But having been to that lowest of low points, it only made everything even brighter and happier and shinier when the resolution came. (And seriously, I believe he was remorseful and I bought that!)
Lloyd...what a pig! What a horrible, rotten, miserable snake in the grass. His death was too good for him.
Writing style - loved the chapter hooks at the end. Loved the dialogue (even that which was cutting). Totally enjoyed the line where Amanda says, "Why aren't you having sex with me?" !!! (Won't tell you how he replies to that one as it will spoil it if you read it)! I thought it was a really easy voice to read and I am now keen to read the other title by this author. You may have some critics, Alyssa J. Montgomery, but you've just won another fan.
This books seemed at least 30 years outdated. I had to check if it was a republished book but I don't think it was.
I had a lot of hope when I bought this book. The storyline was interesting and I love Aussie romances. But it's just not a book I would recommend. At all.
