This book needed much less agonizing over whether Bobby was letting his best friend down by his attraction to his friend's sister, and more on something, anything else. The conflict is a good starting point, but shouldn't be the middle and end as well. A little more action would have been nice too.
Having read most of Suzanne Brockmann's books, and thoroughly enjoyed many of them, I've got to say this is my least favorite.
I hesitated to listen to this one, since the hero and heroine already experienced a "happy ever after" in the previous book (To Die For). I'm glad I listened anyway. Ms. Howard worked plenty of relationship tension and romance into the story with the requisite hot sex scenes. It wasn't all predictable, and the performance was great.
A quirky but emotionally believable heroine, a strong but vulnerable hero, a mixture of unexpected humor and sensitive feelings, all delivered by a great narration! This is not the first Rachel Gibson novel I've listened to, and it's definitely not my last.
