Well... this has to be one of her earlier ones. The characters are kind of weak. The man in the story would be what I would consider emotionally abusive, and the woman too fickle. Otherwise, the plot was ok. 2 1/2 stars.
For the most part I enjoy JAK's novels, however, she sometimes creates scenarios where a little common sense on the heroine and/or hero's parts would make things less complicated for her characters. I know this would make for a much shorter book, but this novel left me cranky that everyone was so dopey.
