Judith McNaught was not her best with this one. Aside from the fact that I devoured this in one sitting without thinking, I found myself outwardly cringing. The roomie had already read this one and we got a kick out of how bad it actually was. We both enjoy Judith McNaught tremendously, but this is the worse book of hers that we've read. It was cheesy, overly dramatic, completely unbelievable, and just plain silly.
This has always been one of my favorite McNaughts. Nick and Lauren are absolutely magic together. I especially enjoyed the interaction of the other characters such as Jim and Mary, too.
Not as engaging as some of McNaught's other contemporary books, somewhat dated, and her characters lack their normal color and depth, but an engaging story and quick read.
