I think this is a book you will either love or hate; I am firmly ensconced in the LOVE camp. I read romance books for an escape. I suspend reality and let myself believe in the fairytale and that true love will heal all wounds and triumph in the end. The plot is one that has been done repeatedly, and a little thin, you can see what’s coming from a mile away, but that was ok with me for this book, because the dialogue between the protagonists is sparkling, witty and fun. The repartee makes up for anything the plot may be lacking, in my opinion. I just sat back and enjoyed the ride with Simon and Catriona. Simon is the typical hero, tortured from emotional wounds inflicted by his parents; he’s turned to a life of meaningless debauchery and sexual, but not emotional fulfillment. Cartonia is a doe-eye, tenderhearted optimist who forgives a little too easily anyone who hurts her. There is one particularly corny scene in a ballroom, that had me rolling my eyes, but I was so in love with Simon and Catriona by then, I would have forgiven a hundred corny scenes. This book made me happy, and that is why I read romance!

Narrator is terrible, I could NOT finish!
I have never written a review based on the narrator but this had to be an exception. Annoying voice, boring story..rather far fetched plot, and very little done to make you actually like the characters.
