Suzanne and Ryder aren't my favorite couple of this series and I found it rather difficult to read this book. Couple this with barbie doll Nikki's wedding planning, another hated character and this book was nowhere near as good as the first two in the series.
Suzanne and Ryder were divorced two years ago or so they thought. While working with bridezilla Nikki, they get the news that the divorce was never finalized and they are still legally married. These two fight and bicker like no one I've ever met and have remained "friends" since they travel in the same racing circles. Ryder still carries a torch for Suzanne but won't admit it to her. And Suzanne has rarely dated because she's still hung up on Ryder but won't can't express her emotions so has failed to tell him the simple truth. It was a comedy of errors without the comedy. I found myself cringing again and again when they started up. Though I will admit that regardless of their problems, the sex was hot and frequent. So hot that I found myself just turning pages because it depressed me. lol
I'm definitely looking forward to Evan Monroe's book. Mr. perpetual bachelor, I am not a one woman man is finally going to meet his match. I can't wait.
2/3s of the way into the book, the hero and his buddies suddenly become women in hairy suits when the guys (all in the testosterone heavy profession of race car driging) start asking the hero how his relationship with his woman was going. Then they tell him he should TALK to her about the RELATIONSHIP. I mean, come on. How girlie is this? Do you know any guy who would do this with his buds? I dont. Not one. (Okay, maybe my gay guy friends. Maybe.) But a hetro male? Theyd rather be boiled in oil than talk about to their wife/girlfriend/significant other about their relationship. Theyd sooner be tortured to death than offer each other relationship advice. The women, meanwhile, are having the same conversation with the heroine, and accusing her of thinking like a man because she doesnt talk to her girlfriends about the things that bug her. So its not that the author doesnt understand that theres a difference between the way men and women think and communicate. She just chose to ignore it. Even worse, if the hero and heroine had been given this advice earlier and followed it, the story would have been finished in ten pages, which would have been fine by me, because I got very tired of the talk-have sex-take offense-argue pattern that kept repeating through the story
what a fun story! I was anxiously awaiting Suzanne and Ryder's story and it did not disappoint!
