I loved 'Some Like It Charming' and was so excited to read the second book in this series. Unfortunately I was very disappointed.
This couple was so far out in left field that I had trouble following the story and who was doing what. They were both immature and clueless, Maggie more so than Cole. Some of the language was a bit much, bordering on crude making it just raw sex instead of making love. Neither had much self control but they each sure wanted to be in the driver's seat.
I also don't understand the continual one-up-man-ship. Ex: She showed up at his home and woke him up at 5am one day. So a day or two later he showed up at her house around 4am, I think. Each of them spent most of the book making sure everything was always even.
In my opinion, this was not really a love story. It was a story about a man who was willing to destroy people without a second thought regardless of the consequences. He lied, he blackmailed, his word was no good, all he thought about was money and sex and I got so very tired of reading about how much he wanted her. She wanted him too and she was like concrete, immoveable, not giving in. But after she did give in, there were times, that as hard as she was, she gave in much too quickly.
I felt exhausted after I finished this book. When I read, I like to have a feel good moment at the end of a book, but all I felt was agitated, frustration, anger, and wondered how two people could be so stupid and waste so many years because their fathers were enemies.
First, the heroine, Margaret (Maggie) Caldwell, is one of the most unlikeable characters I've read in a while. She's cold, calculating, self-absorbed, arrogant, and often, just downright witchy. She actually knees the hero in the groin because he had the nerve to call her Baby. Seriously?
Throughout the book, I felt as if I were missing something, like maybe this is the sequel to Tanner and Ginny's story. Even after finishing the entire book, I was still a little unclear on how and why things played out the way they did when Maggie and Cole were 18. There's no explanation as to how Tanner ended up with Ginny when Maggie "loved" him enough to trade her virginity to Cole to save Tanner's family from financial ruin. Cole reneges on the deal, and the author refers to him "sneering" at Maggie that he'd always wanted to see a Caldwell beg "outside the bedroom". It may be clear in the author's mind, but not in mine. There were definitely pieces missing.
Cole Montgomery, who's supposed to be the ruthless hero is much kinder and more mature than Maggie. He had his stupid moments in the past, but seems to have grown up, for the most part (which is nice, since he and Maggie are now 30). I don't know why he kept trying to help her when all she did was get angry and say she couldn't trust him when he did try to help. I know love is blind, but in this case, it's blind, deaf, dumb, and not very smart.
Finally, this book is less than 300 pages, and the author is charging $8.99 for it? I got it for free, but if I had paid $8.99, I'd be requesting a refund from Amazon. The book is rife with misplaced words, repeated words, and misused words. To study a contract with scrutiny is to PORE over it, not pour (this was in the book at least twice). And one does not itch a scratch. The first time I read that phrase, I thought it was a joke between the H/h, but it was repeated about five or six times, so clearly the author believes this is the correct phrasing. No. You can scratch an itch, but you simply cannot itch a scratch.
I would not recommend this book to any of my friends.
This was just okay for me. The two lead characters were hard boiled wheeler dealers. We don't see enough of their softer sides. I would liked this to have seen more romance between Cole and Maggie. There was rather too much about business deals. At times I found it confusing and difficult to follow.
