    Heroine came on to her brother’s friend hero when she was 16 Hero was horrified he was attracted to an underage girl and her treated her with contempt for the next ten years To complicate matters the heroine’s brother died in a drunk driving accident and the heroine insisted everyone in the community including her parents think it was her fault Hero was also in the car and kept her secret This twisted logic was to protect her parent’s image of their golden boy Heroine had to leave town for NYC where she was lonely for ten years and finally had sex one time with a sleazy investment banker She ended up pregnant and he finally told her was married with two kidsPregnant heroine returns home while her parents are on a cruise and has to ask the hero for a key to their Napa Valley farmhouse Hero who owns land next door and is part of a prosperous Italian family wine making enterprise won’t give it to her because there had been break ins He insists she stay with him while consulting with her clients She is a landscaper – based in NYC – okHeroine’s pregnancy eventually is revealed Hero swoops in to marry her and to adopt her unborn child etc He sounds like a great guy on paper – but he was an ass throughout the entire story JP hadn’t got the hang of writing a wounded alpha who feels betrayed that his innocent love isn’t so innocent and it’s probably his fault JP tries to give that impression – but this hero slut shamed too much and didn’t show enough vulnerabilityregret – especially in his role of having the heroine run out of town and out of her own family because of his secrets Heroine was deeply annoying She screeched and said things she didn’t mean and was generally an idiot all around I suppose they are meant for each other

    Yeah that was just plain not good I can get behind a mean hero but only if he has some reason for it and the author has set it up well and rationally Here not so much This guy was a misogynistic asshole He humiliated and insulted her over and over Like somehow it was her fault that some sleazy guy and lied to her that he wasn't married and knocked her up and then demanded she get an abortion He made it all her fault and belittled her for it

    I have read several of this author’s books and liked them All; but sadly if this had been the first I wouldn’t have read any It was so bad I gave up half way through and skimmed to the end The heroine is an unsympathetic shrieky whining misery Her behaviour is simply annoying and I could not like her The hero is a total jerk He allowed her to take the blame for her brother’s death through drink driving because she wanted to save her parents learning their golden boy had feet of clay She’s now pregnant by a married man who wants her to have an abortion She didn’t know he was married but seriously at 28 could she not have found someone better? The hero forced her into marriage and then after a totally unbelievable journey we get the happy ending By which time I really didn’t care JP can write well but this first book was a train wreck Later books show she can produce nuanced and sympathetic protagonists and plot a credible and entertaining story Sorry but I really disliked this one

    The chemistry of the hero and heroine in this book was really amazing You could tell their angry lead to unmistakable passion It was amazing reading what all unfolded between them and how such a man could adopt a baby who wasn't even biologically his or even born yet I felt the emotions scorch me as I read further Especially near the end when the heroine is ignored and hurt by the hero and then goes into premature labor I was so touched by the ending and who the hero was in the book there needs to be men like him out there in the world
