As I started it, I saw it was a Mira book (an imprint of Harlequin) and I was a little bit concerned because of my bad experience with Saving Max (you can read my review here). I was worried that this would be another one with a completely irrelevant/unnecessary romantic/sexual relationship. But Mira completely proved me wrong! I'll definitely continue to read the imprint - and I would love to read more from this author.
A few passages jumped out at me as really good, the rest were just average. The story was more entertaining than it was particularly beautiful writing.
Perfect! Such an engrossing read - I liked the characters and their development; I liked the story and how it played out; I liked the emotion that it brought out in me. It's one I definitely recommend. BUT, I also have to say that it is a hard read emotionally. It does deal with the murder of an infant, and it does replay that scene more than once. It's a huge focus of the book, so if you aren't sure how you will feel about a book centered around the death of a newborn, you may not want to read this one. It's not graphic or bloody, but it's certainly emotional.
