I didn't like this book. I'm not sure if Baxter couldn't broaden the characters behavior repertoire or she deliberately made them appear limited. Either way, Hero & heroine had a set cycle of Hero demanding & heroine avoiding. It happened so many times. It got very annoying. It was made more so with heroine's constant crying. All she seemed to do was work, get tired/sleepy, faint, & cry.
I didn't like both main characters. Aside from heroine being a big cry-baby, she liked to deny & avoid problems. When Hero tried to confront their issues, heroine unfailingly interrupted him. She didn't want to hear it or know about it. She herself kept secrets from Hero. She didn't even tell him she got pregnant or miscarried. She wanted him to somehow know something was wrong & chase after her. Hero was better about getting things out in the open. But when his efforts failed, he resorted to threats & blackmail. I don't know if he got tired of heroine's immature antics or didn't care enough for her but he also didn't make an effort to discuss their r/s problems with her when she suddenly moved out of their house 2 years before. They were both emotionally unhealthy people.
CAUTION: annoying characters.
