This book is not horrible, you have to understand the characters..its seems most of the folks on .com lack understanding of Hopes nature
Hope is sweet and is willing to let others be who they are yet she likes to hold on to what makes her happy and Andreas does that, he is also sweet with her and would prefer she remains in sleeping beauty mode../But boy is she stubborn when she has had her fill. And that shocked Andreas..lol
Andreas is aware that he takes advantage of her sweet nature but thats just who he is , manipulative and forever trying to think steps ahead of anyone else. Except hope is the complete opposite that Andreas cant seem to understand her, while she understands him really well
Andreas will prefer to wrap Hope away to keep people from enjoying Hope as he does, because he is aware that others will take advantage as he does..he is also so jealous he cant see straight and lashes out at the one good thing in his life because he wants an excuse to ignore his feelings for her.
If Hope has remained quiet about the anniversary, I get he feeling they would have made it to eternity with Hope stuck in Andreas;s bauble
Andreas needs a Hope in his life because it he is able to let go off his cunning a bit and settle into happy days with her. Its obvious he is crazy about her to have stayed so long but refuses to accept it.
I like this book because..
-They have been together for 2 years and the story covers months rather than days which happens in some harlequins
-The dialogue is hilarious
-Hopes friends are a great addition to the plot...would be fun to have more dialogue between Vanessa and Andreas. Both of whom think they are trying to protect hope from the other...:)
The cover is WRONG...
Imagine hope as scarlett johanson with blonder hair and blue eyes
Imagine Andreas as Maksim from dancing with the stars or Joe Manganeillo from true blood
