This is book 3 of 4. Obviously I have read the first 3. All the males are alpha, arrogant, egotistical and all the books start with the males wanting a female for only a one night stand. All the men in this series (as of book 3) have series 'commitment' issues. None want to commit. In books 1 and 2 the females was strong and sassy. They stood up to the males, gave as good as they receive.
Now in book 3 the male was widowed, his wife having died in childbirth. The deceased wife was the 'love of his life', first love, childhood sweethearts, mother of his child and after 12 years was still mourning her and declaring to every female he had sex with that he was not in for anything except sex as he had already had love and no one would ever replace her.
On a personal note I have to say that if a male told me that I would have to say well OK, hi and bye.
The female takes one look at the male and is in love with him, no kiss, no handshake, no hug, nothing but a look. The male was rude and a total jerk to her throughout the entire book and she took it. It was only about the 7 pages from the end in which the female is leaving to go spend Christmas with her parents and she is being flown by the jerks brother and the plane crashes that jerk thinks - oh I love her, nothing can happen to her I can't live without her. So he rescues her, his daughter and his brother where the female promptly tells him that she loves him and passes out. When she wakes up he tells her he loves her but his first wife will always be his first love and then he asked her to marry him and of course she said yes.
Now I was just not feeling the love in this story, it just didn't hold you. I was actually speed reading pages just so I could finish the book and go on to something else. This book did not hold my interest and it didn't make me feel good about them either.
