After reading the mixed reviews I got this book mainly because it was free, also it is part of a series so I knew if I liked it I would download the rest. It started promisingly but then unfortunately it just faded away. Whilst the story was a predictable M & B format I found it so boring in places I like other readers was skipping chunks of it. If you like your heroine to be independant, spunky and confident dont bother with this, there is nothing I hate more than a heroine who is so timid and shy that they struggle to speak at all, the phrase "doormat" has been used and I agree. Whats the fun in a story thats so onesided. I am not tempted to pay for any further books by this author but would consider a free one again to see if this was just a one off or if all her heroines are so boring.
