I liked this book but it was too long, with too much description. The plot didnt make sense all the way. Why was the boy kidnapped? The author answers that but for some reason the person who kidnaps him is never told the truth, that the boy may not be his. Is it done to protect him? We don't know for sure. The man responsible for the kidnap does one thing and then another. He doesn't seem like he has a singular goal in mind and i was left wondering what exactly his motivation was for each move he made. Theres alot of description between ridge and the witch but most of it seems a little clueless as to how they actually feel about each other, as if they don't know themselves how they feel from one moment to the next. The first half they kind of treat each other like they have strong feelings for each other but both could live without the other if worse became worst.
Their feelings yo-yoed so much, neither think they deserve each other, even in the last few pages of the book. Both the hero and heroine describe how perfect they have become for each other over time, and being together has only cemented that bond, but they are both still willing to walk awayfrom each other for no reason at all.
There was absolutely no reason for them not to be together. The witch struggled with control and obssessive issues and the hero with insecurity and self-doubt, but both overcame that before the end of the book. They fell in love and each knew the other loved them, but it didnt make sense that they would walk away from each other like that. The hero and heroine should not able to live without the other. Thats mostly the point of romance novels, to show that love conquers all where in real life it often doesnt. These novels are quick, entertaining reads, partly meant to give a warm, fuzzy feeling so the real world doesnt seem so cold and partly to give the reader a nice, sexy buzz and a hope that love can be better than we can imagine, if only we let it.
