3.8 Good with a couple of Hmmms. 4  4

It was an interesting story, but I wasn’t too pleased with the heroine on a number of things from her behavior to the hero on the baby and how she wouldn’t step in the hero’s shoes to see his perspective. So, we start out with the hero and heroine working at the same law firm. The heroine is a lawyer and the hero is a barrister. What’s the difference? I did an amateur search and it seems the term lawyer is a generic term that covers the legal bases, whereas a barrister specializes in one particular field along with receiving tougher cases. Our hero and heroine have been a couple for 2 years, much to the joy/chagrin of their peers and friends. They live together, participating in couple’s activities and; yet, it’s not definite of whether they’re seriously committed to each other. Now, some of their “activities” have gotten the heroine pregnant. From the heroine’s perspective, it’s SHE who labels their relationship as a “Friends with Benefits”, which leaves her wondering on how to break the news to the hero that he’s going to be a Dad nor can she predict his reaction to the news. The woman doesn’t drag it out, thankfully and waits for his response. His response wasn’t the worst if you have read multiple harlequins, it just wasn’t the best. He says, “Let’s get married. That would be the best choice,”. This was NOT the BEST CHOICE of WORDS and I had to remind myself the hero is human since he made the mistake of phrasing it in wrong. From then on till 80% of the book is finished, has the heroine stonewalling the hero on anything concerning the baby or their relationship. I understood her fear of uncertainity in holy matrimony commitment and supported her decision to get some distance between the hero by renting an apartment for herself. However, most of her attitude towards the hero and their baby didn’t leave a positive impression on me. The heroine complains if the hero had the same mindset as her then he would have proposed a long time ago. Oh Please!! You’ve been dating for two years, building the connection, meeting his family and, vice versa. If the someone of your mindset was suddenly proposed to by a guy you were only dating for a few weeks then you would have flat out rejected him!! I mean the hero tells her straight that he wants a marriage emotionally and legally (you can’t put it into better context). However, the heroine accuses him of using court tactics on her (probably sees her excuses crumbling) and almost completely shuts out the hero from there. So, the hero works tirelessly for the next few weeks in proving he’s worthy. He starts by sending roses to her office everyday. He helps her with moving out of their apartment to her new apartment and tries to balance between expressing his thoughts and respecting her thoughts and boundaries. The heroine barely meets himself halfway for mediation, requesting they bring in an arbitrator, or even be open to couch talk. The heroine is just comparing the hero to her philandering dad who walked out on her family when she was a kid. This is basically unfair for the hero, but the man presses on. In addition, there’s also another colleague we title as the OW. She has her sights locked on the hero like a lioness on a gazelle. The OW makes numerous attempts in seducing the hero, staking her claim before the heroine when the hero’s back is turned. And the heroine becomes jealous and thus takes it out on the hero who has no idea why till she confronts him with what’s going on behind his back. The one person who was my absolute favorite was the hero’s mom who supports both hero and heroine, but she has the common sense not to intervene unless one of them asks for it. One of the biggest Fopas I noticed in the book was the titling on the heroine’s food on page 77. I’m serious, she says that she went out for Chinese takeout but the titles on the food are Karaage, yakisoba, ocha drink. Those are Japanese food dishes, not Chinese Takeout!!! I think this might by been an accidental mistake, although, I can’t say who did it. This stonewalling the hero only goes on till page 102 when the heroine gets word the hero’s plane crashed. And she’s suddenly faced with the frightening reality of a life without the hero. She rushes to the hospital, titling herself as the hero’s fiancée to get in and see him. And then he appears before her alright with some bruises and scrapes. They confess their love to each-other and I became really impressed with the heroine on the next page. She sets up the dinner, gives the hero a rose and asks him to marry her. He says yes, and it’s a shotgun wedding with the end being them cooing over their newborn baby girl. I felt the story was good in focusing on this part of their relationship as they face the new unknown of becoming parents. They were able to work out the big kinks before deciding to commit and a positive was the fact it was in a few weeks rather after the heroine had the baby.
