It was such a fun premise, that I decided to pick it up and give it a try. Now I know romance novels are not known for their creativity, but the writer lost me at every turn. It was as though she was trying to be funny instead of actually being funny. People don't really think like that, these characters (who are supposed to be doctors!!) think and act like people who cannot tie their shoes. It could have been clever and fun, two really smart people trying to outwit each other. The only problem is, neither of them were written as though they had any brains at all. It was really disappointing.
I listen to a lot of books on tape. I chose this book because I love Susan Bennet as a narrator and I though the story looked interesting. I have to say I enjoyed this book in a way I haven't enjoyed one in a long time. It was funny, sexy, exciting and frankly a lot of fun. I hope the sequel comes to audible sometime soon!
I was unaware that this was a Christian book. Even so, are people of faith really that vanilla and boring? You really want me to believe that a Chicago homicide cop doesn't swear and is so wholesome that he could give Ward Cleaver a run for his money? Not to mention that the heroine, who is apparently a master at a million activities that are in no way related is a 40 year old virgin ?!? I know this is fiction, but the reason I like fiction is it is more exciting than real life. In this book, there is no chemistry, little action, and creepy "dates" where they watch each other do nothing via webcam. Also, the narrator has no ability to do a female voice.
I got this book based upon all of the rave reviews. Personally, I found the story a little depressing and I was not a fan of the narrator, especially when she attempts a British accent.
