This novel just doesn't get off the ground. It's weighed down with a seriously improbable plot, and for me, two extremely irritating central characters. I found Veronica's unbearable snobery and Cooper's utter destain of women, distastful in the extreme and although reasons and justifications are provided their illogical and immature behaviour was far from endearing. I had to keep skipping paragraphs to avoid becoming too irritated to finish the book. At one point, angered by the Cooper, Veronica immediately takes steps to uproot her bewildered and traumatised niece which translates, given the circumstances as both impulsive and selfish. Andersen does create endearing child characters and maybe if we'd have seen a little more of them, we would have forgiven the adult's childish behaviour.
The theme of the man that's been burnt and won't let himself love again and the woman that will do anything to protect her child, was done well in Andersen's "Exposure" and even better by Jennifer Crusie in "Welcome to Temptation". Read either of those or Ms Andersen's "Obsession" that has similar themes examined in a much more skillful way. There is still Ms Andersen's characteristic hot sex but that is not enough to make this anything more than an average read.
this book is the first in Andersen's 'Marine' series, the following book being 'getting lucky' (Zach's story-who we have briefly meet in this book).
It was fast paced and got into it fairly quickly.
I liked the characters of both Coop and Veronica and their insecurities etc were very well written because most a lot of ppl can probably relate to them.
I will definately be keeping this book on my bookcase.
