This book is just plain BAD. First of all, the entire premise of the book is weak. Connor was dumped by Anne a decade before and had his heart broken. Anne is throwing herself at Connor and basically intent on "winning him back". However, the spineless woman is unwilling to actually tell him (or indicate in any way, for that matter) that she wants another chance with him at love. Instead, her approach is to basically just tease him into arousal and then expect this to make him fall back in love with here. She's like some strange combination of naive idiot and slut. Secondly, nothing seems to happen until the last 50 pages the book. Most of the book is just one scene after another of the almost exact same conversation between Anne and Connor being held over and over in different locations. The most grevious problem, however, is that the reader is left completely mystified as to Anne's reasons for dumping the poor boy in the first place, especially since it is implied over and over again that she didn't really want to in the first place. The purpose of this, I assume, was to create some type of suspense by leaving the question hanging. However, this completely backfired and the only result of the "drama" was to leave me entirely unsympathetic to Anne and allow me to give a silent cheer every time Connor rebuffs Anne's advances! By the time the "mystery" is finally explained (and any idiot could have guessed what happened by the time the authors deigns to inform us), it was way too late to get over my dislike of Anne. As for the actual content of the "mystery", I guess I can believe that 18-yr-old Anne may have actually been that naive and stupid. The real problem is that naive young Anne has supposedly matured into confident, self-assured Anne and she STILL isn't the one to tell Connor the truth. Connor's behavior is not completely flawless either, but the poor man deserved so much more in a woman than what he got. And, of course, somehow he ends up in the position of apologizing and groveling. Unless you're the type that actually LIKES the romances that are completely one-sided and where the woman can do no wrong and everything is always the man's fault, do not waste your time or your money on this book!
