Dec 07, Tanya Kaley rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this novella and the writer has a very engaging style. The setting seemed real with authentic clues such as costume and attitudes and the conflict was there from the start. I can only say a longer story would have been even better, after all who wants to put a good story down?
This is a book I came back to download after having a look inside. Jun 09, Gilgamesha rated it liked it. Ohhhh I want to weep for this book. It could've been the most endearing love story ever written. I wish the author hadn't succumb to mediocre plot devices that are generally employed by 'other' HR writers.
Then the stupid and unnecessary misunderstanding happens and Rhys starts acting like a complete imbecile and then he out of no where realizes he was wrong but continues his Ohhhh I want to weep for this book. Then the stupid and unnecessary misunderstanding happens and Rhys starts acting like a complete imbecile and then he out of no where realizes he was wrong but continues his idiotic behavior because he is scared he will further hurt Dani.
I wish the author had spent a couple of more months with this book and had written a better ending. For the author this book is a lost opportunity to have written something great. I still gave it 3 stars because I am absolutely in love with Dani's character.
Even Rhys was endearing until he wasn't. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book I had enjoyed quite a bit of it, while wanted to stomp my feet in frustration in some other.
Danielle is not a classical beauty. Danielle, or Dani as her closest people call her, is short, rather plump and all in all plain to look at. Her father died early and then her mother had bouts of depression. Dani, being the only child, was left to take care of her mother who was never much of a mother to begin with. Even though she survived but barely as her back was injured.
But it seems Dani is made of sterner stuff and a wee bit on the fluffy side, so it seems nothing ever weighs her down. At least not that much. Dani has been living her quite elderly, distant relatives ever since her mother committed suicide. Life has no prospect apart living with the Smiths as long as she can It was one of those nights when she was having trouble falling asleep that Dani saw light on a faraway castle called Falmouth. No one has since laid claim on it.
However, when she notices the light, instantly Dani decides she needs to investigate the matter. I mean seriously girl?! This is what I mentioned about being unbelievable However, the following scenes were quite funny so I instantly forgot about it. It was like a small puppy trying to nip at a big dog. He was once gorgeous and women fell at his feet.
He was a bastard er, literally and came into his title quite unexpectedly. That made him titled and rich too. The perfect combination for both hot widows and actresses and the mamas with marriageable daughters to hound him wherever he went.
He chose extremely beautiful women as his mistresses, and no less. It was his big mouth that got him into trouble with an unfortunate debutante possessing an overweight body and vindictive nature. Oh how the mighty had fallen! Rhys is still bitter about it but 5 yrs have mellowed his temper.
At least regarding that incident. He has deliberately let the gossip loose on his fictional demise. He wanted to just fade away so that no one from his previous circle could find him, only a few trustworthy people knowing the truth. Simply because of that he was now living in it. He despised that piece of junk who ruined his mother, never married her and left them in utter poverty.
He hated that outwardly he resembled the man to a fault and maybe even inherited a certain amount of his vile temperament. Now what is this little trouble doing at his doorstep in the middle of the night? Danielle is nothing at all like the women he was used to but her honesty and innocence caught him so completely that Rhys had no idea what to do about it.
It was downright funny to watch those two biker and nip at each-other. I was quite entertained. On their second day of meeting, when Dani took food with her, her injured back took another thump as Rhys tried to push her away. He was being his grumpy self, but the whole thing was completely unintentional.
But when it kept her abed the next day and night, hence her absence, he begins to grow impatient and concerned. And OMG, he was maybe missing her too! His ever-sarcastic, bolder-than-he-should-be butler certainly found it entertaining. Oh how wonderful! Rhys on the other hand was trying to justify his yearning for Dani with loneliness, forced celibacy etc.
But he knew deep inside that this was more than that. And because he was so convinced, he was also pushing Dani away a lot, hurting her in the process.
