I enjoyed it. It's a feel good story. I liked someone in disguise and a couple getting to know each other based on what's inside not outside. I'm glad there was no big misunderstanding. There was some conflict when he learned her true identity, but it wasn't drawn out into a long, frustrating separation. There are some sex scenes, but they are done with no sex words which was ok. I think that was the norm back in the 1980s when it was written.
