This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

What the eye cannot see...

Colin Gerrard has everything. He is a handsome, charming, and unattached gentleman in possession of a fortune. What nobody knows, and would never suspect, is that he is not nearly as carefree as he seems, nor is his heart free for anyone’s taking. It was already taken long ago, and when his lost love unexpectedly reappears, in London of all places, he’s very much afraid she still has it.

...the heart already knows.

Lady Susannah Hawkins-Dean had no intention of ever seeing Colin again after their terrible departure 16 years ago. She never wanted to see anyone who knew her in the past. There were too many secrets, too much shame, and he, of all people, could not know them. But when Colin refuses to leave her in the past, Susannah finds she is just as in love with him as she ever was, and it could ruin them both.

Maybe It’s Just Me But Did This Book Have A Cast of Thousands?

This book reminded me of the Soap Operas I listened to on the radio. No one should suffer the way the heroine of this installment of this saga did. I enjoyed the first three books of this series. I missed the fourth one and somehow got pitched into this mess. If you enjoy other people’s pain, read it. If you can keep the stories of more characters than Dowton Abby straight, read it. Otherwise skip it

Good Story!

I liked this story. Colin has always been the fun, less serious one of the group of friends. This story tells his true side. It includes a lost love. A woman he has loved since he was a teenager has now returned to London. She has a son and many secrets. She doesn't want anyone to know of her past but with the help of "the Gent" Colin finds out and secretly helps her.
One thing that bothered me was how long the misunderstanding and refusals went on. It bogged the story down just a bit. The drama picked back up to a very satisfying conclusion.

Overall an entertaining read

I enjoyed how the two main characters didn't jump in the sack all the time and that the ways in which he helped her weren't how I predicted. Though it took me a couple chapters to feel the hook, I was glad I stayed with it. All the supporting characters were unique and interesting. The writing and narration were both good. My one disappointment was that, in many parts, I had to play it at 1.5 speed (or more!) and sometimes fast forward it to get through some of the interminable internal dialogue and mental ponderings. I prefer more real dialogue and action than listening to characters overdo the mental angst. In this case, a bit repetitive and overused.
