Not my favorite of the series, but still enjoyable. It was witty although I did get tired of everyone muttering comments under their breath. I liked the premise and I was entertained by all the characters. I wouldn't mind hearing the story of her brother, Will, and Sarah, her companion and how they got together.
This was a fun read, reading how these men don't want to married and how they all fall in love and how they take to it. Lots of tension, steamy stuff and a great storyline that keeps you turning the pages quickly.
Victoria Alexander can certainly write a great conversation. I feel like I'm in the room with the characters! This book, #3 or the 4, was cute although a bit dry in some places. It certainly isn't my favorite of the four but it was worth the read. My only complaint of the series is that other than small references to their names, she rarely mentions the characters in the other novels.
On a sidenote, the women in these stories tend to be stronger, personally comfortable women, unlike other romance novels with your standard 17 year old virgin.
The story of two people lying to each other to keep their identity a secret did not keep my interest. Especially when it goes on through the entire book. I rushed to the end and that wasn't very interesting either.
