bed rest in the hospital for a pregnancy, but she lost the baby anyway hide spoiler The rest of the story depicts how they work out their misunderstandings and find love again The author did show both sides but I m still team heroine all the way She suffered a lotthan he did even if he was worried when she was off the radar for a few months This is the story of Angie and Roque, they have been separated for a year after it was reported in the press that Roque had slept with another woman Angie, a former model, has spent most off her adult life raising her younger brother and fighting to

Angie, a former model, has spent most off her adult life raising her younger brother and fighting to keep them out of debt After she had married Roque she constantly felt torn between her troublesome brother, her career and Roque Deeply heartbroken by Roque s betrayal she had retreated for a while then quit modelling to take up a regular job with her former agent She was unaware that her brother had been stealing from Roque using one of her credit cards When Roque finds out about this he uses it as blackmail in order to have Angie come back to him If you read my reviews regularly you will probably know two things about me by now The first is that I m pretty easy to please, most of the time a book just needs pages and I ll like it The second thing is that I don t like being overly negative, so I will try and contain my frustrations about certain elements of this book So, lets start on a positive note as is expected of Michelle Reid s books the writing is really good, especially when it comes to describing and setting the scene OK so here is the stuff I didn t like The premise of the story is samey, it s something that has been done many, many times before, and this has all the typical elements playboy husband, false accusations of infidelity, blackmail to make the woman fall in line etc, etc It s been done and it has been done much better than this The next thing I m going to talk about is what really killed my enjoyment It raises the question of what constitutes as an act of infidelity To me any act of intimacy with someone other than your spouse partner is infidelity, that includes kissing, embracing, sex etc In this book the hero was caught passionately kissing another woman yet thinks he has been wrongfully accused of being a cheater because he didn t sleep with the other woman He punishes the heroine for believing he cheated, but to my mind HE DID CHEAT Infidelity, to me, is a no no in books unless it had solid reasons and written with sensitivity, this is not the case with this book If you take these things and add a rather cruel hero, a doormat heroine, a crow bared in miscarriage mentioned once, then a pregnancy that happens despite a condom and the pill super sperm and you are left with a book that, unfortunately, I just didn t enjoy Originally posted at I enjoy most of Michelle Reid s books but this one just didn t work for me Angie, a former supermodel is a bit of a cardboard heroine Yes, she s gorgeous, cares for her stupid brother and is still in love with her husband the gorgeous feckless Roque He s a real jerk in my opinionwhat kind of man goes to fashion shows and involves himself only with models.right His behaviour towards Angie is so not there..i wanted to hit him on the head..She let him walk all over

is so not there..i wanted to hit him on the head..She let him walk all over herwhat a worthless guy.I don t know where the authors find names for their characters but being Portuguese I have never met a Portuguese man with a name of Roque.where did she find it and the surname Calvhos nowhere in the portuguese language have I ever seen a word with vh in it..well I guess it is only a story after allauthor licence and all that.Not one of my favourite Michelle Reid s books but I will read others of hers in the future Apparently he was faithful.Even though he thought about cheating, almost went down on the other woman on public and made out with her in a way that qualifies for grounds for arrest for indecent behaviour.Because he didn t stick his tool in apparently that s not cheating.All because heroine had to put her brother before him couple of times He needs to understand that just because they re married doesn t mean magically he is now the centre of her universe and she d severe ties with everyone else Apparently he was faithful.Even though he thought about cheating, almost went down on the other woman on public and made out with her in a way that qualifies for grounds for

to act as the ultimate stepford wife Well die you bloody fucker comes to mind Again This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Warning major spoilers ahead I am conflicted about this one I actually really liked the story overall I thought both hero and heroine were well developed and interesting.However However, I have a MASSIVE problem with the fact that the hero equated Angie driving away from his house with him CHEATING on her with another woman And yes, I consider Roque kissing another woman in a club cheating Abso freakin lutely cheating In fact, Roque admits that if he had found Angie making out with a guy Warning major spoilers ahead I am conflicted about this one I actually really liked the story overall I thought both hero and heroine were

consider Roque kissing another woman in a club cheating Abso freakin lutely cheating In fact, Roque admits that if he had found Angie making out with a guy in the same circumstance he would have gone ballistic and broken up with her.So, if she had done the same thing, he would have thrown her out.But, he did it and he equates it with her going off to see her brother He says that Angie driving away, then changing her mind, turning around, and coming back to him was the SAME THING as him making out with a woman at a club, and then deciding not to sleep with her.Oh My God WHA Sorry That is complete and utter bull pucky.If I knew how to add a volcano gif to this review, I would do it But I can t So just imagineVOLCANO EXPLODING Hee hee.Also, onething Her miscarriage was a major trauma for her, and it was never really discussed between the two of them At least, not on page for the reader to see That was irksome We needed some emotional resolution from that scenario That was a major fail for me.So, I m not really sure how to rate this Let s just leave it atwell written, interesting characters, sexy chemistry, but unfortunately, some very frustrating moments lousy hero the hero has every intention of cheating on his wife and goes half way into cheating by kissing another woman passionately and then has a change of mind and all this because the poor hero always wants to be the centre of the universe and couldnt tolerate when heroine gives importance to her brother wow what a crybaby I think he needs a doting nanny not a wife the hero blaming the heroine for straying and heroine clamly accepting it was just too much.over I hate the double sta lousy hero the hero has every intention of cheating on his wife and goes half way into cheating by kissing another woman

would have thrown the heroine out of his life if he saw her kissing another man but wants the heroine to accept him for doing the same yuck also I feel the heroine s miscarriage was glossed over, the hero should have suffered Overwritten, overwrought, yet still boring, who d have thunk it There are snippets of an interesting story here, but it s mostly drowned in endless bickering and accusations.What I liked both characters have faults The breakdown between Roque and Angie s marriage is partially caused by his threat to be unfaithful which Angie refuses to believe he didn t carry out but also by Angie constantly putting her feckless younger brother ahead of her marriage Roque thinks ruefully about Angie s Overwritten, overwrought, yet still boring, who d have thunk it There

partially caused by his threat to be unfaithful which Angie refuses to believe he didn t carry out but also by Angie constantly putting her feckless younger brother ahead of her marriage Roque thinks ruefully about Angie s fierce ability to love unconditionally so long as your name was Alex, not Roque and he s quite right she s willing to accept and forgive any amount of bad treatment from her brother, but refuses to even listen to her husband.And Roque, at least, shows some intelligence and growth I enjoyed this line, which follows the heroine having a bout of vomiting Roque viewed her pinched pallor from the taut position of a man who was recalling the times he had cut it too fine with the use of a condom By category romance standards, that practically makes him Einstein He s also concerned about possible pregnancy for noble reasons because Angie is so young and had been a mother to her brother for six years of her life She deserved a break a chance to learn how to be Angie Unfortunately, the heroine continues to court Big Misunderstandings as if they were her best friend.There was enough good points in the second half that I wasn t really sorry I d finished it, but overall, blah and not the story it could have been Broken vows don t necessarily mean a broken marriage Angie de Calvhos meant every word of the vows she shared with husband Roque at the altar Pity he

li Angie was utterly incapable of dealing with her thieving brother, and no wonder, being a wimpy ostrich coward When faced with a problem, she s totally cool and English translation da Nile ain t just a river in Egypt I didn t hate her, but her inability to handle her younger brother in a remotely intelligent way was exasperating, and she really pushed the fragile, breakable, wounded thing pretty damn far, although granted she had good cause to want to protect herself.Surprisingly, I liked Roque, although of course it was enraging that he cheated on his wife But, junkie, he didn t actually cheat Well in my eyes, a married man making out with his ex girlfriend on a crowded dance floor with their bodies plastered together and his hands gripping her ass, with no regard to photographers and leaving his wife open to public humiliation, speculation, and ridicule, is cheating So at first I was ready to wreck him, what with his righteous fury at being labeled a cheater when he hadn t actually slept with Nadia, and his blaming of Angie for pushing him away I mean, how slimy can you get However, later on he came around and realized he hadn t been totally innocent, and I actually forgave him when he fully acknowledged his transgressions and he told Angie that he d behaved badly and been a lousy husband to her Contrarily, I was mad at Angie for volte facing and saying she d forced him to do it Woman Just take his apology Don t tell him it was your fault he cheated Gawd.By the end Roque was racing around trying to make sure Angie didn t hurt herself or run away whenever something came up that might bruise her fragile feelings, and that was fun although I m not sure I like it when the H is totally aware of the h s extreme emotional vulnerability Still, very entertaining with a happy little epilogue to tie it all up
