Romantic tension was stated rather than created, giving the reader no emotional involvement in the story. Time seemed to just flow in the story without much of anything happening. There was a strange interlude where everyone went water skiing, which really made no sense, since it didn't seem as though the "sport experience" changed Kate's attitude at all. If you want a rather tame romance with no explicit scenes, and where the moral of the story is that true love doesn't necessarily have to conform to rigid rules, then this is the book for you.
Jeff is a great male lead, and should have her head over heels in love. Why is there so little ROMANCE in this romance novel?
Meanwhile, Kate thinks she has found the man of her dreams. Grayson White is handsome, successful, classy - and interested in things other than sports. He takes her to the opera and to expensive restaurants - literally sweeping her off her feet. She's immediately smitten.
I have known women like Kate - heck, she could be me! More than once in my single days what I thought I was looking for wasn't what I really needed. . . And so it is with Kate. She thinks Grayson is the man of her dreams when her real prince is sitting right next door - literally. Unfortunately, Kate very nearly gets herself in over her head with Grayson before the shocking truth about him is revealed. I applaud Sheila Rabe for not sticking with the "rules" of romance and, instead, making this book into something that is REAL. And she does this with her trademark wit and humor. Those who continually find fault with the romance genre should certainly take a look at this book. These things can happen in real life - and do. Thank you Sheila for another wonderful read.
