Laurens has such lovely prose, and I like her characters -- until she makes them say the same two things for fifty pages. I was having quite a nice time in the beginning. The dramatic meeting, the heroine's plight -- all of that was juicy stuff. And she has real skill at setting the scene.
Then the 6 hours of repetition begin. Hero: "We're getting married." Heroine: "No we're not."
That's it. For page after page. And then, it's Heroine: "Okay, I'll marry you." Hero: "Are you sure? You need to be sure. I can wait." For page after page after page.
And then, I don't know what happened, because I couldn't make myself listen to the end.
I don't mean to be a brat. The author is immensely popular, so there are clearly people who enjoy the kind of 'battle of wills' plot she creates. I'm just not one of them.
