Harper’s Bride — Alexis Harrington
We heard all the arguments throughout the book, so by the end it gets to be an ‘OKAY! I GOT IT! They’ll never be together! SURPRISE ME! ugh.’
I actually glazed over the last 20 pages or so because I wasn’t interested, and the little wrench she tried to toss in at the end didn’t fool me either, she had us believing Harper to be a strong, noble, upstanding man, why would she then try to convince us he wasn’t? If she had done her job to begin with (which she did) we wouldn’t believe it (which I didn’t) and the only outcome to that is: an eye roll.
However, that being said, I would read this again. I really came to like both of the main characters, I enjoyed the interplay between them and the baby involved. I don’t think I’ve read a romance with a baby involved before the fact. So that was intriguing, and while it could have gone very much awry, it didn’t. I understand that for some there is a bit of the oogies with the whole breastfeeding scenario, but I thought it was beautifully written here.
So overall enjoyable. Didn’t toss it across the room, rolled my eyes only once, and no WTFckry.
