Two lovers strive to trade a grim past for a bright future in this story of bittersweet yearning.
Tina Jenson belongs to the same social stratum as Harris Chapman, but he’s out of her league—at least that’s what she thinks before they jump in bed together. It’s the perfect night, but when she overhears crude, hurtful comments the next morning, she can’t get away fast enough.
Ten years later, Tina’s life is a mess. That night with Harris didn’t just hurt her feelings; it started a cascade of disappointment and heartbreak. Every time she bumps into Harris, her heart twists inside out. She still wants him, but she’s harboring a painful secret from their night together that she’s not ready to reveal.
Crossed signals, high-society whispers, and shame have kept Tina and Harris apart for years, but deep down, they’re hungry for each other and eager to write their own rules. Can they let go of the past and find their way back to each other, or are the barriers between them too high and too strong?
I absolutely loved “The Unwanted Wife” by this author. I read it multiple times a year. So naturally, I had to give this one a go in the hope it turning out to be another favorite.
Now even though I did enjoy reading this one…it didn’t top any of the other books I have read by this author. In all the former books I really felt bad for the heroine… I wanted her to get all the grovel she deserved !! (which they all did 😉 )
Unfortunately, that wasn’t how I felt about the heroine in this book. Sure, I understand that she got her feelings hurt, but I just think she took things a bit too far. I actually started to feel annoyed and that is never a good sign.
I still enjoyed reading this story but in all the other books I was really rooting for the heroine and in this one… I felt the hero might be able to do better.
I am however very excited to read the next book…Which will “hopefully” be about Libby and Greyson.
