Disappointingly, this story is written totally from the heroine's POV. Also, they've already been married two years, and are in conflict, when the story opens - there's no build-up of sexual tension, and the heroine is under the (false) impression that the hero is having an affair for the whole book.
This would have been much better if only how these two people decided to marry "for convenience" was made a part of the very beginning of the story, and then it continued from there -instead of plopping the reader smack into the middle of their troubled & sexless marriage -which made no sense. Also, the hero's POV was desperately needed.
