Unfortunately LA's take on the damage to the h is probably very accurate, no woman came out a situation like that unsullied back then and probably still wouldn't even today. Which is a depressing thought in the midst of a depressing book. However, the h's insistence that the H not address the situation with his relatives really, really irked me. Multiple Tim Tams and Captain consults were being conducted at this point.

The H also admits that his ex-wife sins were heaped in coals of fire upon the h's head, so the h's assessment of him was true and he refused to admit it. It took him over half a year to get over himself, but now he loves her, even tho he hasn't really changed and will always be a workaholic harasser. He essentially hunted her down cause she was great in bed and he finally figured out she really meant it when she said she wasn't coming back.
But he just figured he would look her up to see if she changed her mind yet and was ready to crawl. Sadly, the h did. The h thinks they can just work together and he can continue to harass her all he wants, if she can have a few babies. The H thinks that is great, he can send any future offspring off to boarding school with his other kids. So the final bit is the H and h and new step kids and the h's family all attending the H and h's wedding at the mountain lodge where they met.
The H is busy groping the h on the dance floor and the hotel staff is gazing upon the gruesome twosome fondly and we can finally close the book on this very degrading and depressing HP outing. This book would never make it past the first reader's desk if it was published today and even back when it was first published, it was definitely pushing the sleazy side of HPlandia. Unfortunately, certain aspects of this story still hold true even now on the harassment front and as much as I like LA, this is not one of her better offerings.

We didn't even get more than a word or two about the h's dog to relieve the sheer disgust of this situation. I absolutely did not see a happy ending here, the H's lack of remorse, his lack of decency and even his lack of parenting skills were not boding well for the HEA believability. The h was likable, but ultimately her career ambitions, combined with her utter, utter stupidity, made her seem more like the gold digging tart that the H initially assumed her to be, rather than a lady I could root for on this HPlandia outing.
View all 7 comments. Nov 30, Vanessa rated it did not like it. When he decides to buy the resort that she is working at he feels he must check her out as well. Grant is extremely attracted to Briony and he sets out to attain her. He finds that she is great at her job, but he would much prefer her at his beck and call! So many times and in so many different ways, it is proven that Briony is NOT what Grant thinks her to be, but he is so idiotic that he continues to believe the worst of her.
When Briony talked about the OM and his pursuit of her it sounded so similar to what Grant had done, but neither of them correlate that. He just bugged me a LOT! He decides that she needs a man to take care of some frustration so he offers to be that man, and I think she should have just bought a toy and left him to his own devices.

Grant denies that he carries anything over from the past when Briony calls him out on that. Yet he does. He wants to be in complete control of this relationship, and he does not mind being a jerk to get what he wants. I want to smack him more than anything and perhaps shake some sense back in to her! He is constantly staring at her breasts as well. While he acts as though he respects her and her mind he seems more enamored of her chest!! He lied! He also tells her that he will not marry her and to not hold out for a ring. She says Gee grant you going to give me a puppy every two years to make up for lack of children?
He gets mad and spouts off telling her she should find a man to give her children and when she has that out of her system they can do a deal! She calls it quits then. People are out sick so she has to work to cover for the shortage by working longer hours and helping out where the shortage is. Grant shows up thinking she has had plenty of time to rethink her position — still no kids by the way — she tells him they are short staffed.
Then he says he has friends for dinner and they need a private dining room. So of course, Briony has to fill in again so that they can provide staff for Mr. What does this winner say later? You should have told me that you were short staffed! Is he an idiot?

Still no wedding ring from him he tells her. Aug 07, Helen Moulden rated it really liked it. I think the story was a bit long winded and empty. I enjoyed it but found that I was surprised how slow it was.

So many holes. Too few morals, plot too easy to guess, relationships stereotypical and stilted, , better than sitting in a waiting room without a book but not one you'd truly miss if you forgot and left it behind.

Surprisingly I liked this book. The story was cute and not over complicated and the characters were likeable if a little two dimensional. I know my review is scathing but most of the writing disasters just made me laugh. That being said, reading this was a little tedious. This book needs major editing to make it easy to read. The run-on sentences were literally full paragraphs and the phrasing was often confusing. Most of the book was written in past tense which I find extremely annoying.
