Disappointing contemporary romance
March 10, 2018
This contemporary romance was disappointing to me. I thought I'd enjoy the story of a single mother looking for a new start. However, I felt that the sexual harrassment angle was overplayed and inconsistent. In one case, it wasn't even clear from the story whether a past contact even knew who the heroine was, or whether he was making a comparison. I could not like the heroine for her deception, especially when it didn't seem to me that it was of any help to her previous or later job status. She was also all over the map. She apparently wanted to avoid undue sexual attention, yet in one case wore a tight skirt with nothing underneath. This made no sense to me. The hero was inconsistently alpha male then compassionate. From the cover, I wasn't expecting it to be explicit, and it was, and I mention just this for other readers who, like me, were expecting something different.
