The story was an interesting because in the many harlequin comics that I have read, I have never read one that had the hero slip to his mother of his sex night with the heroine and have the mother criticize him on the heroine's behalf. That was new and frankly, I smile in memory. The hero and heroine are related to each by marriage (heroine's mother married the hero's great uncle). Apparently, the heroine's mother was a real piece of work who didn't care about anybody but her lust for money and material gain. She was the representative of a true "gold digger". The heroine is 23 years old and the hero is 30. I never understood why the hero has to be at least 5 years older or more than the heroine, it ticks me off. The heroine is hated by the one person (the hero) who was kind to her when her mother first married the uncle and now since the heroine's mother is died with the uncle, the hero has released all the hatred towards the mother onto the daughter demanding why couldn't she control her mother. I liked that the heroine stood her ground against her accusations because her mother was a strong minded woman and the hero should have noticed that because if he was able to notice the mother's infidelity and spend freak she was, then he would have noted that the heroine who is the woman's child wouldn't have been to do anything. Then he comes off with the angry tone that she used his uncle's money to go to a university. Really? If a woman had been given an opportunity to go to college, get a job, and not become the gold diggers that he hates then he should encourage it. I like that the hero's mom stands beside the heroine through it all. I mean the woman is sweet, except when it comes to scolding her son. It's also fun to watch the mom make the hero stutter and get frustrated. For one thing, she doesn't judge the heroine using her mother and see the heroine's true self. I liked how the heroine was selfless in giving back the family heirlooms that the uncle gave to the mother without asking anything in return and when the hero made a negative comment about the hero and her genes to the mother, I wanted to smack him. I did like though that throughout the book, we are able to see the hero's thoughts and it makes it more enjoyable to watch the hero realize what an idiot he is. The hero is also so hot and cold to the heroine, one moment he is insulting her and then kissing her, after that, insulting. It feels like the circle of stupid life. The hero admits to himself that he has wanted the heroine for years but his excuse, "I'm a proud greek man," Hmmmm. I believe the sentence describes him better, "I'm an arrogant, stubborn, and coward of a greek man. My opinion of the hidden message within the sentence. Then the hero says something really stupid about the heroine to the mother, which the heroine hears and when the hero see and somehow that they both end up at the hero's house, no sex yet. I think the only part that I liked was the fact that the hero openly admitted to the heroine that he is a fool and apologizing with the actual sentence, "I am truly sorry", before the point of reaching half way through the book. Then right before the hero and the heroine have had sex, the heroine admits that she's never felt this way about anyone and the hero thinks that with this statement, it means she is a virgin. However, she doesn't bleed, so the hero gets all mad from not only the lack of blood stained sheets but also a letter from his uncle of his intentions to divorce the mother. The hero gets all angry and when the heroine wakes, the seven gates of hell break loose. I am going on the side of the hero because what the heroine said before could very well mean that she is a virgin but it could also mean something else and when you're lied to by the daughter of the woman that you hate, you do spit fire but he definitely shouldn't have spit fire at the heroine when she tries to explain that she was raped at 16 but the hero doesn't go for it and frankly it is hard to say how could you lose your innocence without intercourse. The hero stands his bad boy stand and the heroine runs off crying, leaving the hero and Greece behind. Next the hero gets scolded by his mother on having intercourse with the heroine through what looks like FaceTime. I have never enjoyed watching a character FaceTime another character as I did in that scene. Plus, the mom brings up some interesting information about the heroine: she is an accountant. Basically, it means that she has a job and hasn't lived off his uncle's money since graduation. I liked that the heroine's job wasn't the usual interior decorator, plus it shows how smart she is. I loved what the mom called her son "You old fashioned moron," I have heard the hero being called many things but that is definitely a new one and I love it. After the lovely talk with the mom, the hero realizes his stupidity and goes after the heroine, only find her gone, leaving behind her little box that's filled with things related to him. He tries to find her but is unsuccessful because she changed her name to get away from her mother's influence. They are more than 2 months break from each other, which I say good and the only reason, why they connect is because the hero has a heart disease and the extra bonus of being pregnant. I give brownie points to the heroine for putting her child before herself by contacting the hero so if anything happened to her after the child was born from the heart disease then the hero would take care of it. I also give brownie points to the hero for two things; not saying, "who's the father?" (so tired of that) and coming as quickly as possible to the heroine. I also liked how the heroine noted that the hero was thinner than the last time she saw me and standing her ground when the hero began pulling all the sweet greek words on her. She didn't fall into his words and think, "Oh! he loves me!". I did find the scene where the heroine finds out that the hero talked with his mother about their sexual encounter funny. Then the heroine lost brownie points for me because she allowed the man who was cruel to her after they made love to sleep in the same bed and not use the couch. I'm sorry but if the hero said those things to me then it would either be couch or floor: take your pick. What I find hard to believe is that the international detective agency couldn't the heroine. All they had to go was look up planes that left within a two to three day range from Greece to New York, ask permission to the flight companies, looking at their records to see if a woman following the description of the heroine took one of their flights. Sounds simple to me. The next morning the hero starts off nice with a having breakfast and coffee ready for the heroine. Not a bad start on the apology train but he goes off rails when he states that the heroine will marry him and in his arrogance, he believes that she wants marry him. This leads to arguing, to kissing, and then rushing to the hospital because the heroine started having negative heart palpitations from stress. The heroine does in up in Greece but stands solid against the idea of marriage when the mom comes rushing in stating that the heroine is getting married. The heroine reasons with the heroine that there's hasn't been a marriage proposal and no consultation from the heroine on the wedding itself. The hero interprets it wrong but gets the message right: court and woo the heroine. Finally!!! His first attempt is terrible because he gives her all this documents for rights to material gain, which we all know that the heroine isn't interested in; why, this is because she gave up all her mother's expensive possessions to charity. Advice to men: when you want to court a woman, find her likes and use them. We also learn that the hero was engaged to a woman like the heroine's mother and he was badly burned from that relationship and when that woman left, the mother came in. The hero tries again with flowers and jewelry, flowers work but jewelry doesn't. The hero and the heroine finally have a heart to heart conversation about each other including the heroine's rape. The heroine's story made sense and I felt terrible because of how her mother told her to deal with it. It was terrible, the both of them were shedding tears. It was a good scene, which led to the heroine finally agreeing to marrying the heroine. Plus people say that third time is a charm and the hero definitely won by giving the heroine what she really wanted: her loving father, whom she was separated from by her evil mother. The ending was sweet but I wish I could have seen the baby. It was a good book to read.
