Where to start with this book? I've never read Catherine Anderson before -- I'm a big Lavyrle Spencer fan and it was interesting to read something by someone else. Let's start with the characters. Molly annoyed me to no end. For someone who already has an extremely timid, unsure, and in my opinion annoying personality, the fact that she's named Molly made it impossible for me to like her. Jake was hot stuff of course, but I quickly grew tired of the constant reference to his "blazing eyes, roped arms", etc, etc, and his way of ALWAYS being completely on Molly's side was tiresome as well. I disliked how Molly was always squeaking. This sounds overly picky, I know, but it's the little things that make me like or dislike a novel. Another one of my peeves about this book is the way some of the writing is done. The first sex scene between Jake and Molly is fine until the writing takes a turn for the tacky and overdramatic. I want a climax to be heavenly and sweet, not, I quote, "Molly shrieked -- shrill bleats of sound emitted with every compulsion of breath". That just made me think of a sheep being killed. Lastly, the writing is often repetitive. "Zigzagged" is used a lot in reference to sexual sensation, and the characters are often found saying or thinking "Holy hell" or "Sweet Christ". Now -- finally! -- to the good. I did appreciate Molly being shapely and I didn't mind Jake finding her dimples a turn on. When you love someone, everything about s/he is sexy, and clearly this was the case with Jake. What kept me going was the story of how Molly had so much she was hiding, so much to fear, and it didn't seem like it would be possible to right everything. The suspense kept me going.
