sandra brown does it again I've never been disappointed by her reads!
From the cover: Jordan Hadllock seems to have it all: a great job and Helmut Eckherdt, a rich industrialist intent on marrying her - even though she hasn't said yes. What more could she want? A clap of thunder and a pounding on her door soon give her an answer.
Reeves Grant appears seeking shelter from a sudden downpour, but the real storm is inside JOrdan and the passion they share. He disappears the next morning and then Jordan receives two more shocks. Helmut publicly announces theyre to be wed - at the very same moment she spies Reeves snapping pictures of her new "fiance." Now Jordan is moving toward the altar with a man she likes but doesn't love, whie Reeves is often only inches away. And JOrdan Hadlock has to choose between a man who wants her to be his wife and one who wants her to be his lover.
Jordan Hadlock spends her days shelving books at an English newsstand and her nights avoiding talk of marriage with her boyfriend Helmut. It's not that she doesn't care for him; it's just that her first marriage ended badly. Since then, Jordan has pledged never to surrender to love again. Then comes a knock at her door. It is an attractive American stranger in need of shelter from the storm. Jordan takes him in and after a magical evening together, she is crushed to wake up and find him gone. That night, after Helmut announces their engagement, he introduces Jordan to the journalist who is interviewing him for a magazine. It is Reeves Grant, the very man who had only last night managed to reignite her heart.
USA TODAY - "A masterful storyteller, carefully crafting tales that keep readers on the edge of their seats."
I enjoyed reading Sandra Brown's book, Not Even for Love. I really do enjoy her books, but this one wasn't one of my favorites. I enjoy reading about independent women, which this book had, but I'm not a fan of reading about women who take any kind of abuse, even verbal abuse from men. I understand how misunderstanding drove the characters apart while at the same time their underlying love kept thrusting them together. However, I wish the author could have made the female lead character a little more stronger in character.
Still this book was a great read.
