First off, I love Judith McNaught! I have read all of her books now and have found the characters come alive with the stories. However, this is not an example of her work. In fact, if this had been the FIRST book I read of hers, I would never have continued to read her at all! Kate is the main character and is whiny, racist, and just a spoiled brat. Throughout the entire book, I disliked her and found her manipulative, shallow, and self centered. Her romantic interest, Ramon, is charming in every way, except he likes HER and it never makes sense. He is so brilliant in all other parts of his life, yet I was angry at him throughout for falling in love with her. She is repulsed by his darker skin - she fears him. Yet she agrees to try out marriage to him within a week of meeting him. At the most "heart-wrenching" scene, I started laughing out loud! Yes, it IS that bad. No, you shouldn't judge her based on this book - ANY of her other books are wonderful (Perfect is my favorite.)

Judith McNaught happens to be one of my all time favorite authors. There isn't a book of hers that I don't absolutely love. However, this one really was a disappointment to me. The heroine was so frustrating. I had a really hard time trying to finish the book.

While the book did help get through a rather drab Sunday, it didn't really match up to other McNaught books. Typically, I re-read a lot of her books, but not this time around.

Great writing overall...some of the storyline was a little hard to swallow at times but then we all want a happy ending don't we? :-)

Just a wonderful book...lost in the fantasy of instant love. Seems a little farfetched but a great ride. Tall dark and handsome gains new meaning!
