Hero seems like a complete jerk or just too proud to express his feelings towards heroine. However, his attitude makes me wonder if things would have been difference if there wasn't a third party.

Seriously, I didn't see any start or even a spark of romance between the hero and the heroine. It's just insults from the hero that you wonder why the heroine agreed to his proposal in the first place. Examples: When they first meet, he accuses of rubbing up against the father for his money. After that, he makes fun of her style of dress and if she wore something nicer then she would be considered pretty. He accuses her of taking advantage of his father's trust. Then she goes out when the boss, meaning her patient and his father, she goes to buy the dress. She wears this dress at the party and the hero asks rudely if she begged his dad to buy it for her. It never ends, not even after sexual intercourse. In fact after coitus, his words were and I quote, "Will you be my mistress?" When she says no, he tries to blackmail her, using his father as leverage but that's not enough for the heroine. Oh but he goes further to lie to the man about the heroine using the hero for sex, which horrifies her. So, she agrees but the irony of the OW who we will be discussing later, lies about the hero throwing the heroine away and it prompts the heroine run away. The next weeks are radio silence till the hero comes in and lies about the father being sick but the heroine falls for it and goes back to the mansion. Next, is the confrontation where the hero received a letter from the heroine (it was the OW) that she was going back to her ex. This is actually the first thing that the hero believes in the heroine when she denies that she ever wrote that. Then he says that he told the OW that he rather be with the heroine and tells the heroine that he's in love with her. Then the heroine says that she can't be with someone who can't get married and he responds with "marriage. That might work." Are you kidding me??!! That is not what marriage is all about, it's about making a solid decision to bonded in holy matrimony and legal papers with one person because you see, not a probable idea. I couldn't get the heroine have coitus with the hero and gave up when she said voluntarily yes to the idea of marriage. Then the two get married but I'm not done. The OW was a manipulative creature who didn't know the etiquette of being a guest because guests are invited into the house and she wasn't by the hero's father. In fact, she has done everything she could to get the hero and heroine to break apart when there wasn't even a relationship in the first place. The hero and his father, OH MY GOODNESS!! They didn't need the heroine, they needed an arbitrator to make them sit down and speak when given permission. They needed Madea, Judge Judy, Steve Harvey, and/or Doctor Phil in talking things out. It just wasn't that good of a book.
