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.

This book did it for me. I know it was outdated and definitely showed it age with some political incorrectness in sexual harassment in the office place, but I loved the story. I thought Nick was arrogant and a user and pulled one over on Lauren. He lead her to believe he was really into her and more than a one night stand. Since she was so innocent she didn't realize what a rake he was, but once she did she was strong and lead him on a merry chase. I liked how he try to make her jealous, yet she didn't cave until he fell hard. I love these kind of stories!!
