To Be Determined

I read. Mostly Romance. I like to talk about books. The end.

Baby of Shame (Harlequin Presents #2518)

Baby Of Shame (Harlequin Presents) - Julia James Secret baby, tortured alphahole, martyr heroine, one Big Misunderstanding one after another...typical HP in other words, and exactly what I was in the mood for. Bonus points for the heroine actually recognizing that she's beautiful and that men like her for it, because what usually happens is that we get a pages long description of a goddess and then are told that the heroine is completely unaware of how gorgeous she is. I also really liked that she knows how to hold a grudge when it comes to the Alexis, and she regularly tells him off for his behavior and assumptions about her. She's a martyr is many ways--she becomes destitute because of choices she makes to help the father who abandoned her when she was a child, FFS--but her spine makes its presence known when the hero oversteps.This book would have been 3-4 stars but the misunderstandings were too much. There was enough drama without them, and they made both characters look stupid.
