I wish that some of the details of Patience's background had been revealed in conversation rather than just in her mind (she could have told Thomas why she'd never gone fishing, instead of just thinking about it). That would have helped establish more emotion between the two.
Best about this book: I really enjoyed that Thomas got awkward whenever things started to get real. When he realized that Patience's reputation was undeserved he got as foot-in-mouth as Patience.
Minor complaint: Thomas smirked with far too great a frequency, but somewhere near the end the author poked fun at his tendency to smirk and lounge against every surface in sight which nearly made up for it.
I thought Patience's overactive imagination and her inability to keep her foot out of her mouth in social situations was fun. She felt a bit silly at times, but I enjoyed her. The same goes for the hero, Thomas. I think the title of the book is completely out of place though. The hero is far, far from wicked. He's a regular, nice guy who is very easy to like.
There were a lot of red herrings thrown around and it left the final reveal of the villain feeling a bit underwhelming. All that build up and that was it? It was a little disappointing.
I thought the interactions between Patience and Thomas were cute. I liked when they'd have breakfast together and he'd relax and open up. It was amusing how he'd act grumpy and cold again and sweep out of the room when someone else joined them. Mustn't let them know he's a nice guy, after all. ;)

Very cute tale. The plot was boring for the first few chapters, I know. But it gets better. The romance is slow too. But at the end it all comes together very nicely. Read morePublished on January 8, 2011 by T. Lee
