I think this is a shame as this book could have been a good read but I just found the male far too obnoxious - quite frankly I would have told him to stuff his job and can't understand why the heroine, who was a much better character, didn't do this. He came across as a boring, selfish, spolit, stuffy, workaholic with no life - a massive big saddo, not at all attractive in any shape or form. I thought this was a shame as her character deserved more. I appreciate that he changed his view on her once he got to know her better but the switch was a bit sudden as well - I really couldn't imagine such a creep managing to change and feel he deserved to remain as he was and die a lonely grumpy old man !!
