25This book annoyed the living hell out of me Rating 2I was expecting so much for this book and was a little let down It was an ok book but I eally wished that the heroine and hero would have had scenes with the heroine s kids I Défendre Jacob realize that the heroine didn t want to intermingle the hero with her kids and all that but Ieally wished she would haveReally pretty sad it was such a blah ead that I made myself finish but there was no sparkle what so ever in their elationship The characters are likeable enough and while the Black Gold in North Dakota romance seemed to be based on than heated attraction elements were lacking The biggest problems for me were first the ending seemed cut short and the second is difficult It s like I can t exactly describe what exactly was missing Because I can t define it the whole story became tainted by the vague sense that a few somethings are missing and it grates in the back of the mind because you just don t know what it is Another Mills and Boons typeom com that sure will keep you occupied and help bring a smile to your face This book was pretty good but it being a Harleuin KISS book brought it down a few notches Harleuin KISS books are known to be very clean No sex no foreplay and in this case that was bad In one instance they were kissing the next it was a month later your thinking did they do it And a few pages later he mentions it in an offhanded way Well HOW WAS IT They obsess over kissing each other but not one peep about the sex HuhThe lack of omance in this book was it s downfall And the cover he looks nothing like that On the cover he looks a guy who works for a fashion magazine And the lack of descriptions put me a littleoff kilter I have no idea what she looks like The only adjective I got was stunning and gorgeous Nor do I know what his color of hair is just that he was gorgeous and has green eyes Not good I liked Alec and Julia s story Alec uns a baby department store and made an off the cuff emark about not likening children His board hires image consu.
