A nice way to relax for a few hours
on 1 May 2012
This is a great read for a few hours of my downtime.
I'm one of those readers that have to love the hero on sight when I read a romance novel. It doesn't matter if he's a bad boy celebrity, ruthless tycoon, alpha shifter or hard-nosed soldier, when I meet him on the page of a novel for the first time, I have to like him. It didn't quite happen at the start with the hero, Derrick.
On the other hand, I totally connected with the female lead, Eva. She is a strong character who was bold enough to do the right thing when she found out she was pregnant, despite her fears. I empathised with her right from the start.
But the beauty of this story is that Delaney manages to weave a emotional tale for both characters that transformed Derrick from cold and calculating to warm and loving in the end. And you get to watch the transformation take place bit by bit. By the time we get to the final distressing moment, you know there's only one way it can go...happily ever after.
The only downside was that I found the bit at the end about Eva's father and the private investigator confusing. Perhaps I should've read the first book in the series first. I'm going to read that one soon.
I look forward to reading more books from Delaney.
