Rushed, unrealistic and requires too much suspension of disbelief.
on 4 November 2012
This kind of might have worked if it had been a longer tale, but to meet a stranger, fall for him, knowing nothing about him - and vice versa - and agree to marry him, to leave her job, her life and her country to be with him, was just too much.
They met in a bar. He was on business from Brazil, and wondered about sniffing her cleavage (I kid you not). She'd had a bad day at work, had been passed over for promotion, so made a booty call to her 'friend with benefits', who stood her up, and so business-guy made his moves.
The author asked me to suspend disbelief far too much in this tale, as she made the male lead seem like a miracle worker. She also threw in a red herring for no real reason that I could see. I could have done without being told about a booty call and a friends-with-benefits in a so-called romance, and for him to be about to propose, yet at the same time wondering if the latter might be called upon again whilst he was back in Brazil, made a mockery of the tale, of his so-called love, and of his proposal of marriage.
I wish I hadn't wasted time on this pretty useless tale. It's only redeeming grace is that it was well-written, and without typos.
