This Wentworth book was pretty good until the end. The emotional & romance build-up was good & kept the book interesting. Most of the book was focused on how Hero delayed their eventual wedding & how heroine made excuses for him. I felt heroine's desperate hopes & fears of Hero not truly loving her. When she finally snapped out of her denial & doormat phase & started fighting back, the book was almost ending but, at the very end, she reverted back to acting like a doormat. The ending was a rushed & a weak way of reconciling Hero & heroine. I wasn't convinced Hero truly loved her. He was passive-aggressive about the r/s the whole time. And, since we only have heroine's point-of-view, we never find out what was really behind Hero's passive-aggressiveness.
Sexual chemistry was ok. Love scenes were generalized & closed-door. Characterization was so-so: there was an attempt at heroine's character growth but she ended up regressing.
