It was OK but not a wow for me Two thirds through the book the plot and dialogue became cliche and I started to lose interest Some fun witty dialogue in places the book the plot and dialogue became cliche and I started to lose interest Some fun witty dialogue in places ot very angsty and melodramatic near the end it felt like a soap opera plot rather than what I expected from this authorLove her Mackenzie series but not The House Girl going to keep the Riding Hard western series to reread Grant and Christina have a painful history They were madly in love but their inability to start a family drove them apart so there s a lot of hurt between them There s also still a lot of love between them so when a wedding reception brings them together they still feel that spark and one thing leads to another and before they realize it Christina and Grant are back in bed together Deciding it s wiser to leave town than figure out how to work things out with Grant Christina s plans are put on hold when she realizes she s pregnant Now Christina s has to wait to see who the father is There was so much in this one that I m just not a fan of Christina playing with Ray s emotions Christinaetting jealous of Grant for having other relationships even though she was with Ray Grant parading a string of buckle bunnies in front of Christina just to make her jealous then there was the whole who s the daddy issue It just seemed that there was a lot of high school drama from the start and it only built up as the plot progressed Plus there was a lot of moments that had me scratching my head Like Christina confessing her secrets to the woman she declared her enemy odd doctor visits used to create unnecessary conflict and a random pop up storm that just seemed out of place Oh and I can t forget the fact Christina made her sister tell Grant and Ray she Was Pregnant And That She Didn T pregnant and that she didn t which was the father I wasn t a fan of Christina She just rubbed me the wrong way She was very childish constantly putting up walls around Grant constantly trying to push him away And I didn t care for the way she treated Ray There was no cheating she ended things with him before starting something with Grant but there was still that feeling that she used Ray Even though Grant made some wankerish moves he redeemed himself I could see him The Accursed growing and becoming a stand upuy While the relationship between Grant
