Oh My God. THIS BOOK IS ADORABLE Seriously, the most adorable HP ever The hero is so squee worthy and unlike most modern HP heroes He is a freakin farmer LOVE THAT Instead of a billionaire tycoon, PJ gives us an ADORABLE farmer who has been madly in love with the heroine for years He does drive a Range Rover, so there is that The plot is silly and contrived and WHO CARES I LOVE DREW I only wish the last chapter had been longer and that we got an epilogue. Adorbs Grade A p. s This book is SO 1980s, it s hilarious The heroine keeps talking about how avant garde she is with interior painting, like faux finishes and stuff Hee º Beyond Compare (Harlequin Presents, #1282) ↠´ Sweet romance with a hero who has loved the heroine for years He was pretty beta and should have fessed up to his love earlier But then there wouldn t have been much of a book right Not a lot of angst but no real stupidity either Fun read. A cute romance Every now and then Penny Jordan would give us a hero who is so delicious and interesting without being a jerk He demands your full attention in his so quiet way He was a perfect hero and deserved a 5 The heroine lacked self confidence and maybe that s why it took her such a long time to open up her eyes and come in terms with her own feelings and to realize who he really loved.
Re Beyond Compare Penny Jordan takes the opportunity to give us another sneaky Alpha H pretending to be a Beta to get his girl The poor H has been in love with our cuddlesome baby bunny h since she was 16 But unfortunately our h is also as befuddled as a baby bunny and thinks she is in love with another guy But PJ makes the h sweet and winsome enough to avoid a lot of exasperation with her, as the h later says, she didn t know anything else at the time. This one opens with the 22 yr old interior decorating stencil specialist h crying on her very kind boss s shoulder about how her long term boyfriend since school has dumped her for the local rich mean girl back in her home village The boss wisely doesn t comment except to say the h can do a lot better in the boyfriend stakes, but she privately thinks the h has no clue and it is only propinquit Delicious Hero, I loved it Heroine was a bit blind to what really mattered, but she got there, eventually These two had terrific chemistry.
