I seriously want to write a review of this book-I genuinely enjoyed the read, but I can’t remember any juicy details to share at the moment. I feel a re-read coming on!!

Oh, I do remember that I did NOT like the whole plain heroine, plain deceased wife angle. Kinda creepy what he did to make the heroine feel better. Maybe it’s just me.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Even though I had a hard time getting into this book-I just usually associate virgins with HPs and this heroine would have to be the most blatant, free-spirited, sensual non-virginal heroine in HP history.

Hmm..Better ask Lady D or Boogenhagen about that one.

Anyway, there is love from the beginning but we have to throw it all away because of fear. Well, duh! Anwyay, the coming back together-literally and figuratively-is explosive and a joy to read.

Wow! Not since Adam Black in The Immortal Highlander have a read this good a description of a heroine losing her virginity! Jeez. If I hadn’t wanted a do-over before, I definitely want one now.

Whew! Give me a minute.

Ok. What a fun, sexy, oftentimes deeply introspective book. Having had the privilege to play a small part in the nursing of aging relatives, I can understand where this heroine is coming from. I also deeply respected her basically putting her life on hold to take care of those she loved. That part reminded me slightly of Roanna in Shades Of Twilight, but that is where those two heroines part ways.

Our Roxanna is no push-over. She knows what she wants and goes after it. Truth be told, it is a bit cliched and over the top, but it’s an HP and it feeds my selfish need for the same. Well done!

“The Ex Factor” by Anne Oliver

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I just couldn’t get into this one: didn’t really care if the couple got together. I kinda just wanted it all to end. The heroine, former party girl, is now a work-a-holic nurse.

There is so very much I did not LIKE about the heroine that it really ruined the read for me.

Probably just need a re-read.
