This book is more about the story than the spice. Gen is an illegal immigrant who proposes a marriage of convenience to Dexter to obtain her citizenship in exchange for payment of his last semesters law school tuition. These two had chemistry from their first meeting so it was inevitable that they would get together. The story is very detailed with little sex scenes that are not extremely detailed, so if you like a lot of action between the sheets then this book is not for you. If you are looking for a long story that gives you a lot of background on the characters and a lot of descriptive details then definitely pick this one up.

This book may have been good if not for the incredulous plot. The characters may have the physical attraction but there is no way in the book that you can feel they are emotionally attached.

For someone who wants a faux marriage to save her legitimacy of staying in the U.S. of A., she may have been acting so selfish. Thinking of herself instead of how Dexter has selflessly allowed her to waste his time married to her. How can she not allow him to stay with her in her apartment? How can she even not give him her address? Why marry this guy, even as fake as it could get, but not trust him at all? Of course Dexter got something out of the arrangements as well, but he at least played most of the part as her husband. At the hospital when she got hurt, I could bet that if the table was reversed, Gen will not be running to the hospital to take care of Dexter. She will have her apprehensions just like she always does. Dexter appeared to be one of the supporting role in the story rather than the hero. You have to bear with the boredom of the book to see the romance blooming at the last few pages of the book.

One lost cause of the book was with Barry. He kept on pushing for Gen to wait for his divorce to be over so they could marry. He thinks of all the possibilities that he could get Gen to marry her. At the onset you will understand that his intention was not to save Gen at all, but to get her to be his wife. He fought all the way I thought I could cheer for the guy's fortitude. It was again Gen who was giving him mixed signals and not so straight and honest answers that would stop him altogether. It seemed like Gen was playing it safe with Barry so that if anything goes bad with Dexter she has a fallback guy.

Format: Paperback
Graphic artist Genevieve L'Esperance has a thriving career and is loving her life in America until she discovers that her visa has run out and INS is looking for her to deport her. She is afraid of going back to her home country because she knows or suspects that her father was killed because he planned to expose the corrupt government and she knows she will be killed if deported. She is dating an older guy named Barry and he offers to marry her but during dinner with his friends, she discovers that he is already married. He claims that he is divorcing his wife and they can be married soon. Barry finally tells her that he loves her but Gen does not feel the same way about him. He convinces her to move out of her penthouse and rent a room from his friends to keep the INS at bay for awhile. She meets the other person renting a room there by the name of Dexter and after a awkward first meeting, they become friends. Barry's divorce is going to take longer than he anticipated so she decides to ask Dexter to marry her. She offers to pay for his last semester of law school in exchange for him becoming her husband of convenience or so she thought. The INS believes their story and they both end up falling in love for real but that does not sit well with Barry. He tries everything he can to break them up even blackmail but love conquers all in the end. Great story!

In the opening scene of Save the Best for Last by Bettye Griffin, Genevieve L'Esperance has just found out that her boyfriend, Barry, is still married and not divorced as he has told her. But this breach of trust will be nothing compared to the revelation that awaits Genevieve when she returns to her East Side condo and finds out that the INS has been inquiring about her. So, to stay in the United States, Genevieve needs to marry an American citizen, and Barry offers to marry her, once his divorce is final. Meanwhile, Dexter Grey, a struggling student with one more semester before he gets his law degree, appears on the scene, and Genevieve sees an opportunity where they can help each other out. Just who is Genevieve, and why is this polished, educated, successful graphic artist scared for her life?

Ms. Griffin has written a wonderful story which allows the reader to walk in Genevieve's shoes as she tries to make sense of her situation. Is Barry the friend he claims to be? Are the emotions she feels for Dexter real or just gratitude based on a legal agreement? How long will she have to wait before she has a loving relationship like her parents, and will her secrets be exposed and possibly harm others? Along with affairs of the heart, Ms. Griffin delicately addresses the issue of illegal immigration and shows the reader there is a fine line between the status of who is illegal or legal.

I enjoyed this book for the suspenseful elements in the story as the twists and turns had me shouting at Genevieve to see the obvious and grab the man who will provide her with true happiness. I recommend this book to romance readers and fans of Bettye Griffin. This is a perfect book to read as you wind down from the lazy days of summer.
