I want to stab this book with knives! Then I want to rip out the last 50 pages and burn them and when they are nothing but ash, stomp them into oozing black mud.
There are going to be spoilers and I'm not going to black them out so don't come crying to me if you read further. I was really liking this book. It wasn't one of those where they've already broken up and the author goes back to tell their story or tells of them getting back together. It starts at the beginning of their relationship and t I want to stab this book with knives!
It starts at the beginning of their relationship and tells the whole thing. And then he tells her she is his mistress and she isn't good enough for him to marry. Double, triple burn. He goes on and on with the whole with the whole cold sneering condescending thing. He decides he doesn't want to see her anymore so he tells his estate manager that he'd like her to move then denies having anything to do with it when she gets evicted. When he finds out she's pregnant, he tries to get her to sign a paper saying the child isn't his.
When he finally decides to believe her, he withholds sex in order to get her to marry him. That's not cool especially when he smirked about it. At their wedding, he sees no reason that the woman he hooked up with while they were apart shouldn't be there and why he shouldn't dance with her twice. On their wedding night, he admits that he has brought the other woman to this same island house and doesn't feel the need to tell the heroine that it was years ago when they were teenagers attending a party then he wonders why Lindy won't sleep with him.
Then he decides she owes him an apology and keeps refusing to sleep with her. When she finally apologizes, for which total weakass lameness I will not forgive her, Atreus tells Lindy that he never slept with the other woman.
I'm thinking at least that's good. But no, he didn't sleep with the other woman not because he couldn't bring himself to be with anyone but Lindy but rather because he knew if he did, the other woman would "get her hopes up".
Full of yourself much? He does finally admit that it had been a mistake to let her go and that he had missed her. Too damn little. Too damn late. And to top it off, Lindy tells him it was her own fault for pressuring him. OMG fire coming out of my ears! I could have accepted all this asshatery if only the hero had realized he was the worst dick in romance land and grovelled until he had road rash on his chin. View all 17 comments.

This first half of this was -- well, let's just say not the best writing in the world, but an interesting enough story that I was willing to go with it. Then somewhere along the line we lost all input from the hero -- no POV, no indication of any kind of feeling towards the heroine whatsoever -- and the book became about as romantic as a root canal. Note to romance authors: Those long drawn-out confession of love at the end are pretty much worthless without any supporting evidence.

Good job, Harlequin blurb-writers! One day, she decides to li I am giving this book five stars just for entertaining the hell out of me.
One day, she decides to live it up by skinnydipping in the creek behind her cabin, because "no one ever comes out here during the week. I think you know, internet. Her landlord -- the Greek Tycoon, of course -- walks by and thinks she's a whore trying to seduce him, and he demands that she get her butt out of the water and walk naked past him to get back to her house. She is mortified because she's a shy, year-old virgin who is not the beautiful blonde stick figure that Greek Tycoons are accustomed to seeing, and so this whole ordeal is just plain awful, but she does it anyway and goes home to cry about it.
When Mr. Greek Tycoon realizes she's not a whore, he sends her a bouquet of flowers and asks if she wants to be HIS whore.
She is super duper offended that he would dare think of her as a sexual being and ignores him for a few days until she's looking out the window, gazing at his mansion for god-knows what reason one evening and notices that his mansion is on fire. So she runs into the mansion to wake him up and they decide to call the fire department. WAIT, that's what normal, sane people would do!
They forget that firefighters exist at all, and they try and put out the fire and get everything out of the house themselves. While in the house, Fatty McWhiner realizes that one of her decrepit animals is in the burning kitchen, so she runs inside to save it just as the support beams catch fire and crash down all around her.
But don't worry, just as she's about to be crushed by burning wood, she's saved by Greek Tycoon, who pulls her away just in time to ravish her in the middle of the burning room.
The butler busts in and is all like, "Guys, quit Doing It and get out of the damn house. This is all in the first twenty pages, I kid you not. And it only gets better from there. They talk about their awful childhoods and have sob-worthy sex. It's great. And I call her Fatty McWhiner because she's one of those heroines who wastes her energy whining about how fat she is and how no one will ever love her because she's not beautiful and blonde and thin and wah wah wah, I'm going to eat a cheeseburger and make potpourri.

This is the second HP I've read where the heroine gets pregnant in spite of the Hero conscientiously putting on a condom in a manner almost bordering on OCD so I just had to find out how effective they are against pregnancies.. So these modern Heros, supposedly with brains that can run a billio I had to stop reading this book mid-way to go google.
So these modern Heros, supposedly with brains that can run a billion-dollar company, can't seem to slide a condom properly down their penis.
Let's keep in touch!

Greek Tycoon, Inexperienced Mistress
By Lynne Graham. AS TWO of the more elderly directors of Dionides Shipping again pressed questions that had already been answered Atreus let his attention stray to the Art Deco bronze on the far side of the boardroom. It was of a voluptuous Spanish dancer, only half-clad in what might once have been a romanticised concept of gipsy clothing. Atreus could not imagine such a disappointment happening to him. The women he met these days were financially astute and a challenge to shake off.
