The first 15-20 minutes of this book were clever & humorous, when Josh Blackthorne met Caitlin outside her popular night club and sparks flew.
From that high point, the book sunk into immature melodrama involving an ex-fiancé, an unbelievable crush, the tabloid press and the down side of being famous. Josh, son of a rock legend, was basically given the lead spot in his dad's old band, becoming rich and famous without much effort. While basically a nice guy, Josh wasn't all that captivating.
Caitlin (27) was presented as a strong, intelligent entrepreneur with business savvy and determination. Yet she allowed her fiancé Matt to dump her as he was leaving the country but agreed not to tell anyone about their split-up until he returned. What kind of jerk would ask a woman to put her life on hold for months?
Yes, Matt was volunteering with Doctors Without Borders, going to dangerous places to help the sick & needy. That made him a compassionate doctor and generous human being but he still sucked as a friend & lover, obviously not caring that Caitlin would have to live a lie - she couldn't date if she was engaged.
While I didn't really enjoy this novel, I did appreciate that Lexxie Couper gave Doctors Without Borders some excellent publicity. What a wonderful organization!
