There was more than one snob. 2  2

When I did this review, I researched the definition of “snob” from Cambridge dictionary to Merriam-webster. They state a snob is a person who judges the importance of people mainly by their social position or wealth, and who believes social position or wealth makes one person better than others. The hero was one of the biggest snobs ever!!! I mean, he had it out for the heroine for more than half of the novella because she has some aristocratic lineage. They see each other at his recently acquired house that she inherited but had to sell thanks to her uncle’s debts. Upon hearing the short story with her large donations to the hospital, the hero concludes she’s one of the so called do-gooder aristocrats who are trying to make up for their ancestor’s tyranny on the common folk. It doesn’t matter that she did have the common secretary job but gave it up to nurse her uncle. The hero meets with her and they have an argument with her opinion actually holding ground; yet, the hero is just plain rude to her. He not only tries to seduce her with the accessories but corners her cruel words. She tried to use the dog routine but her dog was useless. He calls her a snob, describing her as the type who would rather die than admit she feels attraction to the lower class man. Oh what sweet irony the harlequin does to snobbish heroes! Then comes the manhandling, molesting, and then backing off when he realizes she’s actually a virgin. I was surprised the heroine let the guy kiss her as his reward for self-control when I was just ready to slap the man hard across the face. And it’s not over because the hero decides hen peck the heroine even more through hiring her as his secretary. And he does it on every single thing that even his childhood friend and fellow commoner is aghast at his behavior. How did this happen? Well, it turns out the hero was the son of the housekeeper. He developed a major crush on the young miss of the household and when he achieved riches, he went back home to show off. At a dance, he asked the lady if she would dance with him. She publicly and rudely refused him because he was the common man. Then she married a rich person and started stalking the hero. I did like that despite the hero’s rudeness, the heroine calls him out on his obsession of class. Then comes in the young miss who is more snobbish than the hero; yet, the hero doesn’t criticize her crude words about even his best friend. He crossed the line when it came to the fact the dog had run home and he agreed with Young miss that it wasn’t the heroine’s home. He finally realizes he crossed the line when the heroine nearly catches pneumonia. He earns some brownie points with nursing her back to health and giving her a vacation (even though he sent her away from friends during Christmas time. He calls it his way of atoning for his behavior. Then he drops in on Christmas Eve and gets his Christmas present early. Next morning, he proposes to the heroine and I’m flabbergasted that she accepted it. I mean she asks him why but he doesn’t tell her. So, she goes with the flow and it’s no wonder she believes the young miss’s lies about the hero only marrying her for her family lineage. Even at the wedding, the hero acts all spoiled because the heroine asked his friend if her dog was alright. His words were, “just stating the obvious. I should be the most important thing in your life now.” It’s after the wedding that she tells him she can’t be with him and they separate for 2 weeks. The friend finally gets her to see the hero but she catches him kissing the young miss. He sees her and she runs off. He catches her and she finally tells him what she’s been needing to hear. He states the young miss was pushing himself and he never saw her that way. The hero confesses his love for the heroine goes way back but he was afraid she didn’t. He pushed her to marry him, so she could grow to love him later since he feared she wouldn’t with his past behavior. She confesses she loves him too, they get a happy ending, and I say good grief.

He's just a fancy rapist. 1  1

That Adam guy is just a fancy rapist. When Brooke won't act like his personal whore, he just finds another way to humiliate and traumatize her. The illustrations weren't bad, but I don't think they showed enough horror.
