I did like the H in the story. He was actually quite smart and did try to communicate although he was quickly thrown off his mission by inane things such a breasts, touching, no talking rules, and commands. Ah what is a man to do? After all this is the man that wanted family, home, and Fido but married a desperate housewife instead. Hmm.
The story overall is charming, well written of course, as expected of a Tracy Solheim book. My views are my own and feel that others are entitled to their own opinions. The deduction of the two stars is based on the character of the h and the subsequent impact on the story line.
Aww, I really liked the backstory on this one. Merrit and Heath dated while they were in college. He was her first lover and she thought they meant everything to one another, but that all ended when she found out about a humiliating bet among the jocks. She was shattered by the revelation and took off never giving Heath a chance to explain.
For Heath, she was the one who got away. For Merrit, he was a humiliating awful memory that she wishes she could forget. So when they run across one another 10 years later, there is a lot to get past and work through. Heath has a marriage and divorce under his belt. Merrit is fresh off another humiliating experience...the betrayal by her fiance. Heath sees this as a second chance, but Merrit sees this as a way to prove to herself that she's not the cold fish that her fiance said she was. She could never trust him again.
The emotion to this story felt very real. My heart hurt for Heath because it sounds like he did everything he could to fix the original hurt, but she had left the country and her family was over-protective. On the other hand, I also could completely understand Merrit's complete humiliation. It was one thing when it was just a vague bet, but when the details of what all was on the list came out, I could most definitely see her point. It's a no-win for both of them...until they talk. And that's all I'm gonna say because it's a story worth reading and exploring yourself.
I did really, really enjoy it. I read it out of place in the series order, but that didn't affect my enjoyment of it one bit. It's certainly part of the Out of Bounds series, but it absolutely works completely and totally as a stand alone. In fact, if you've never read Tracy Solheim, this would be a good "feeler" novel to see if you like her style (hint: I think you will.) AND...I still need to know who the blogger is and wonder if we'll ever find out.
