This book has an unimaginably thin plot. The principal female characters also suffer from arrested development.

Why do so many romance novels match the Strong Perfect Man with the Weak Pathetic Woman? Is this really romantic?

Great fast read, but way too short for a "novel." Patterson should release these as a novella."
