So, I have been reading/listening to Garwood for years and love her intricate plots and rich characters. This book has none of that...started out thinking maybe...quickly learned, not so much. The characters had no fire, no heat, little interest. The plot was all over the place. Very scattered and no focused storyline at all. What's her name (already forgot the leads name) was really smart in her work and really dumb and spineless in her personal life. And not very self aware. Liam, could have been a great male lead - but not very self aware and just not around enough in the book. Kind of in and out. Very flat ending....very little tension/suspense at all. Ugh. Save your credit.

I have always loved Julie Garwood. This book didn't read like her. I found the dialogue and characters lacked interest and complexity. There was none of the humor and banter I associate with a Julie Garwood book. I wasted a credit.

I liked the beginning and was in the mood for romance. Story seemed a bit different with a computer geek and smart woman at the helm but it went downhill. She is stunning and sweet and vulnerable but wait she is also weak and needs the man to save her and we are back in the 1960s. He swoops down and saves the day and the girl. I wish the author had of turned the story into the opposite because that's real life. Woman saves man. Women are strong and don't need saving. Would have made a better story and certainly a clever version rather than old tired and old fashioned
Any additional comments?
I have only started, don't think I will finish. I went straight to the other comments to see if any one else had a problem too, in listening to the Australian accent...I can't go any further myself, it is literally hurting my teeth. Only 2 other people mentioned it, Im kind of scared that people actually think, that this is what we sound like.
For the book itself? I had to start over twice initially and that was before the horrid Liam sound came into it, so I guess it was not that interesting. Not like the usual Julie Garwood novels of the past.
