4.0 out of 5 stars Role-Reversal Romance
Lex Gibson is nervous, and with good reason. Firstly, he's sitting on a plane when he hates flying. Secondly, he's hopefully about to secure the deal that might finally make him a success in his thankless father's eyes. Thirdly, he's about to come face-to-face with the only woman he's ever loved. And who he hasn't really seen since she broke his heart twelve years ago...

1.0 out of 5 stars Worse read in a long time
The story could have been a nice romance, predictable, but nice to read on a beach during the holidays.
Unfortunately it is so badly written that after the first chapter I wanted to throw the book away. We get from the first 2 pages that the 2 characters who lived a week of passion 12 years ago are still in love with each other. So no need to hammer that every two...

This review is from: Juggling Briefcase & Baby (Mills & Boon Riva) (Paperback)
Lex Gibson is nervous, and with good reason. Firstly, he's sitting on a plane when he hates flying. Secondly, he's hopefully about to secure the deal that might finally make him a success in his thankless father's eyes. Thirdly, he's about to come face-to-face with the only woman he's ever loved. And who he hasn't really seen since she broke his heart twelve years ago. Not that he's nervous. Not at all. He's just impatient. Really.

At eighteen, Romy didn't fully appreciate Lex and all he had to offer. Not that that means anything now. She might be accompanying him on this business trup, and he might tempt her more than ever, but deep down Romy hasn't changed. She's still independent and ready to flee at the first sign of emotion. Oh, and she has a baby now. Perhaps not so unchanged, after all, but the addition of Freya can only make things more impossible... right?

An intriguing role-reversal of the old commitment-phobe and the emotionally-wounded ex. Lex is cool, sophisticated and as stuck on Romy as ever, while she's the reckless free spirit who refuses to be tied down. With a shared history and a strong attraction, everything is set up for a brief fling. And then there's Freya. And a small matter of a fictitious engagement that could help seal this deal beyond doubt.

With the theme of fatherhood running deep throughout this tale, it's surprisingly emotional at times, considering its short length. And yes I did want to give Romy a good, hard shake occasionally, but Freya is a cutie and Lex is lovely, if a little staid. At times wistful, with more than a little romance and a hefty kick of independence, this was a great read. I'll be tracking down more of Jessica Hart's stories soon.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The story could have been a nice romance, predictable, but nice to read on a beach during the holidays.
Unfortunately it is so badly written that after the first chapter I wanted to throw the book away. We get from the first 2 pages that the 2 characters who lived a week of passion 12 years ago are still in love with each other. So no need to hammer that every two pages by listening to their thoughts (once him, once her and so on) about kissing, touching or getting the other one undressed. This adds nothing to the story and feels more like the author needed to fill some pages in.
