Like other Morgan books, this one was emotionally involving & had passionate sexual chemistry & sex scenes. What bothered me about this book was that both main characters deceived & played games with each other. It weakened their romance & made both of them appear immature & shallow. Hero was very calculating, manipulative, & selfish. I didn't believe that he was in love with heroine all along as he later confessed, since he didn't even like her as a person & saw her as a business & pleasure tool. I was convinced that he came to love her later, after he observed heroine for himself & saw that she wasn't the spoiled & materialistic woman he thought she was. Heroine had an annoying tendency to make exaggerated threats that she didn't follow through with, especially when Hero kissed her. She was also prideful & tended to run away from Hero.
