    This author has a strange writing style Hard to explain, sort of poetical and not necessarily in a good way The hero was pretty darn beta, an absent minded professor who is always backing his car into things etc She was his ward, but is now 22 and on unemployment Lots of stuff happens that you re not interested in And sometimes you re not sure what exactly is going on The writing sometimes is just vaguely unclear And then there was a scene from page 42 to page 62 of the hero and the villa This author has a strange writing style Hard to explain, sort of poetical and not necessarily in a good way The hero was pretty darn beta, an absent minded professor who is always backing his car into things etc She was his ward, but is now 22 and on unemployment Lots of stuff happens that you re not interested in And sometimes you re not sure what exactly is going on The writing sometimes is just vaguely unclear And then there was a scene from page 42 to page 62 of the hero and the villain playing cricket Seriously, you got 189 pages to tell a story and 20 of them are an incomprehensibl...

    The style of writing is different in this book It was written in a conversational tone part of it worked great but part of it dragged like the scene and chapters dedicated to playing Cricket I am a sport enthusiast but even I was bored..The relationship between the various characters was complicated It isn t your typical ward guardian story The promise Alexis gave to Nico, Natasha s dad made him feel like a creep when he started realizing the nature of his feelings for his ward Natasha s The style of writing is different in this book It was written in a conversational tone part of it worked great but part of it dragged like the scene and chapters dedicated to playing Cricket I am a sport enthusiast but even I was bored..The relationship between the various characters was complicated It isn t your typical ward guardian story The promise Alexis gave to Nico, Natasha s dad made him feel like a creep when he started realizing the nature of his feelings for his ward Natasha s interaction with the strippers and how much she came to care for them was interesting It isn t until the very end th...

    I loved this one satisfying older Harlequin The hero is maybe a titch too absent minded professor, and the guardian first cousins once removed angle really adds to the ick factor, but still, I really enjoyed the chase of the romance in this one.

    This guardian ward romance had a little bit of everything in it, from the tame to the scandalous unrequited love, matchmaking, a cricket match, strippers, etc It even contained a chick lit vibe at times What s not to like Well, the writing style mainly The plot rather than the characters drove the story, resulting in less angst and emotion The writing seemed convoluted as well Some passages were verbose and poetic, without making much sense or supporting the narrative Alexis and Natasha This guardian ward romance had a little bit of everything in it, from the tame to the scandalous unrequited love, matchmaking, a cricket match, strippers, etc It even contained a chick lit vibe at times What s not to like Well, the writing style mainly The plot rather than the characters drove the story, resulting in less angst and emotion The writing seemed convoluted as well Some passages were verbose and poetic, without making much sense or supporting the narrative Alexis and Natasha s big argument at the climax lost its emotional impact because of the wordy, vague writing And while I appreciated that the cricket match was included to highlight our beta hero s prowess on the field, as a cricket virgin I would have been happy to have read a shortened version.The best aspects ...

    I can t believe this is a 1985 Harlequin Presents It s pretty scandalous for the time and for Harlequin specifically.Strippers and homosexuality it s like reading a Rock Chick book.I have to say I liked it, but my favorite character was the 8 year old William and his scheming ways I would have liked a lotof him in the book since he was the best character.My favorite part was the surprise towards the end when the H and h are leaving the strip club Didn t see that coming at all And, of I can t believe this is a 1985 Harlequin Presents It s pretty scandalous for the time and for Harlequin specifically.Strippers and homosexuality it s like reading a Rock Chick book.I have to say I liked it, but my favorite character was the 8 y...
