This is a story of a "ugly ducking" who turns into a supermodel. She has a messy past with her meddling family and a stalker trying to kill her. The plot is a bit "choppy" and lacking in suspense. This is not one of Coulter's best, but if you enjoy spicy, mindless romances, filled with erotic yearnings, you will enjoy this quick read!

Eden, who's real name is Lindsay, has someone trying to kill her. Her fiancee Taylor is trying to find out who and stop them. There is a lot of backstory in this novel, as we go back in time to see Lindsay as a teenager and the brutal crime that takes place when she is very young. As a result, her family has more or less turned their backs on her.
I found this novel to have me on the edge of my seat and turning pages quickly. I hated almost every character except Lindsay and Taylor. There were times when it seemed that maybe Lindsay had allowed herself to be trampled on, however, that did not take away from the overall storyline.

This was an excellent read from start to finish. Having survived living in a very disfunctional family, it entails a young woman's extreme fear and distrust of all males. And how she learned from one terrible encounter to another, how to build her trust and to become a self sufficient, caring and loving woman.

One of Coulter's earlier contemporary novels -- suspenseful and romantic.

Too slow moving for me

Who is trying to kill Lindsay, a model with a past? It could be her unloving father, hateful half-sister, the brother-in-law who once raped her, or her weirdo former professor. It probably isn't Taylor, the former cop who finally unlocks her passions and marries her. The solution of this mystery is one reason to keep listening to this overlong and overwritten novel. Deborah Hazlett's decent reading is another. Her voice is clear and, while she doesn't totally become each character, she leaves you in no doubt of each one's personality and motivations.
