I found it way too confusin and at times was thinking, oh hurry up and just g to the end .... I know what 's oing to expec.

Alex has a best friend Tom who she is not attracted to but she knows Tom has long had a thing for her.

Alex is devastated and realises she 's blown her chance to find love with Tom. And so it drags out with things going bad for her and great for Gail and Tom. Until toward the beginnin of he ook he comes after Alex.

I 've read al of Louise Bagshawe 's books reviously and enjoyed them in that ort of light hearted, not much thinking involved sort of way.

Anyway if I 'd given it time, I might have seen more depth to the main haracter and maybe even her boss, but I just did n't care enough about ither of them to mak out.

Over the course of two or three month, the MC falls out with the ride, her fanciable old friend, her ister, her boss, and most of the variou house guests.It 's a foregone conclusion who the MC ends up with, but the wa to true love ne'er did run smooth, and a nove is no exception.A few things left me unsatisfied- there was no real denouement with the relationship with the boss, which left my revenge reflex itching; the sister 's nasty treatment of the MC felt like a device after a while, because there seemed to e no motivation for her to be so bloody about it; and again, the sex, which was more or less glossed over in the early going, but inished up with a surprisingly evocative session of animal sex ( complete with talking dirty) that made the MC realize that love makes sex better.

I have the book by he same uthor, so will see how I like thi one.
