Catherine George: Husband for Real

It was lovely in the beginning if only cuz I love the name Sinclair cuz one of my most fave hero s named that Etienne SinClaire Anna The French Kiss Also the oung adult portion was well writtenCG can definitely write oung adult novelsIt got confusing in the end for me though what with the oh actually I wanted revenge from James That was weird Ten ears ago Rose played a game w James Sinclair a game where the Miracle of Love young 18ear old endeavored to make James Sinclair fall in love w her She began her game and played it well because soon James fell in love w the The Virgin and Her Lover Fragments of an Ancient Greek Novel and a Persian Epic Poem Brill Studies in Middle Eastern Literatures younger girl James was a serious student who didn t really go out w the girls at school and Rose didn t want their relationship to become public This bothered James even though she told him she didn t want to have everyone there speculating on what they were doing and making bets on it Soon Rose believes she is pregnant James feels honor bound to marry her and later a little twerp fills him in on Rose s little scheme w her roommates James feels betrayed says some vicious words ending w basically telling her to get out then taking off for Scotland Rose of course heartbroken obeys her husband and doesn t see him again for tenears She went on w her life and only made contact w him now because her boyfriend wants to marry her but she is already married Rose then contacts James seeking a divorce and she figures it will be an easy thing However James shows up at her door seeking answers and finding feelings are still very involved James was truly sorry for what he did but he had an alternative motive once he saw Rose again I never really understood why he got so upset about her game considering he played a few of his own Why do the H s seem to get away w holding grudges for so long and blaming everyone else for things James was a realistic man because he still had to one up in the end of course then he wants to call game after that as well I really do wish James POV had been explored Overall this was an engrossing read that kept me engaged in the story I truly liked that the h at least attempted to move on as well But of course both characters could never truly find satisfaction in any other rs because something seemed to be missing James did confuse me at one point though when he claimed that An Intelligent Life: A Practical Guide to Relationships, Intimacy and Self-Esteem you can t make someone fall in love w someone else but it didn t sound like he truly believed that This started off strong I liked the university days and the immaturity of it all I felt a hint of nostalgia for my own uni days Unfortunately while the then was entertaining the now was the complete opposite For some the marriage and subseuent relationships with others may be viewed as cheating territory I was surprised to find myself viewing it through a similar lens I think only because the h goes to such lengths to hide that fact and never addresses it At least both had relationships too often the h is the matyr while the H plays Yet my rating was primarily what it was becuase I didn t take to either character in the present As for the stalker plot line so unneccesary I picked itesterday night and I was up till 2 in the morning to finish itI liked both of them but as usual I m into h I love her independence as adult as I love her insecurities as a girl trying to make the aloof hero fall in love with herThe book had a lot of flashbacks I totally loved them I love the fact they were giving a different perspective because they were in the past I liked that they circumstances of their breaking up was in the past because I was given her point of view in the situationI loved how their story began They were wonderful even if Les Amours de Lara Jean T3 (NED): Pour toujours et jamais youngBesides I love the fact they were very normal people She was not a hysterical whining child and he was not the usual cruel abusive husbandThis was my first CG here and it was a very nice surprise I hope to read her again in the future Rose and James fell in love while in college He is fourears older and a dashing heartthrob on campus Rose is a sweet innocent 18 Eternal year old with a super big crush on James She lives with two other roommates One night they select a man s name out of a hat and dare each other to get that man to fall in love with them Supposedly this was some kind of scientific project Of course Rose picks James and her friends set out to coach her on how she can get good ole James to notice her and fall in love There are some wonderful flashbacks with some incredibly tender moments about how they meet date and fall in love However the story falls apart halfway through the book when the author stops using flashbacks and introduces us to the current James and Rose Finally after tenears of being separated and having a serious live in lover Rose finally decides to move on with her life and get a divorceUnfortunately the Rose and James in the present are nothing like the past The passionate chemistry between the two is missing and I had a hard time feeling that their love survived ten Wedded for convenienceor married for real Rose was shocked when James turned uplong after their wedding of convenience She'd loved James when they'd hasti.

Ears Especially Rose she was just one cold woman I also didn t like the fact that both of them were very cavalier about their marriage vows and had intimate relationships with other people never bothering to divorceThe author left me perplexed on a few things1 why did they stay married for 10 Gologie years and never try to reconnect2 why did James feel the need to get revenge on Rose Oheah there was some kind of revenge twist thrown in that made no sense After all what was Roses real crime Let s see she saw a Behind the Red Door young attractive man on campus that she wanted to meet She reached out to sophisticated girlfriends for advise on how to get him to notice her She worked really hard to worm her way into his heart all the while giving him hers If that s a crime then sign up me and 90% of the world s populationThe story in the past was dynamite but the reconnection in the present could have been so much powerful 37 StarsThis was a sweet second chance romance between James and Rose They met in college and are an estranged couple now Their courtship is shown through a flashback and it portraysoung love well But James is furious when he learns that Rose dated him as part of an experimentRose and her friends sketch out an experiment to make guys fall in love with them What starts out as a harmless experiment turns into a serious relationshipRose is forced to contact James when she decides she needs a divorce She does this as a courtesy and is surprised to find James at her doorstepRose is older and cautious James is persist It s hard to pull off a romance in which a couple have a fight separate for Coborîrea de pe cruce years and then find themselves getting back together when one finally asks for a divorce they re usually too implausible too sad or both This is one of the good ones in fact in basic plot outline it s uite similar to Private Arrangements the all time great of this trope Rose and James fell in love in college a relationship cunningly brought about by Rose s friends as a joke But it was no joking matter when James found out the truth shortly after they got married Tenears later Rose discovers that divorce after such a long separation is pretty simple and decides it s time to make it official causing James to reappear in her life and old feelings to reemerge for them bothGeorge crafts the story to be believable They re Matematik Startbok young their marriage is very uick they never even had a chance to live together it s understandable that a betrayal could cause a serious rift And though both hadearned for reconciliation when it appeared impossible they had each tried to move on with other partners and make new lives There s a twinge of sadness over what might have been and a bigger twinge of heartbreak when they attempt to resurrect their relationship but just enough for angsty goodnessI might have given this a higher grade but I was bothered by some huh moments during their courtship And a minor but persistent annoyance why does his last name have to be mentioned all the time He s almost never just James he s James Sinclair Pronounced weird which makes it even jarring Othewise kudos for a Harleuin Presents that s realistic To Conuer Hell The Meuse Argonne 1918 yet still romantic and passionate Ho hum reconciliation story tenears after a couple of college students uickly entered into marriage when the girl thought she was pregnant and immediately separated when it turned out to be a false alarm The guy blew up and accused her of trapping him into marriage by lying to him about being pregnant She hadn t but her credibility wasn t rating too high after he also found out that she had started dating him because of a stupid bet with her roommates rather than genuinely being interested in himTen Gardasil years later the separated couple reunite after the wife finally contacts him to file for a divorce They have been living apart without taking legal steps to dissolve their marriage uite content to pursue career goals and other romantic relationships without a thought about their short lived marriage All of a sudden though the husband seems interested in hashing things out with his wife The wife is not interested at first but eventually she can t resist him so they resume their sexual relationship The story wasn t enjoyable for me partly because I find the flashback device annoying and partly because I couldn t find their romance very plausible after such a long separation I could have believed in their once in a lifetime passion if they had not been able to blithely move on from each other and stay away from each other perfectly content for a freaking decadeThough they were separated it was still eeky that they both engaged in adultery having numerous casual relationships callously using their marriage as a shield against long term commitments and seeming to have totally forgotten about each other for ten longearsIt wasn t until heroine contacted hero for divorce after ten ears that he bothered to show up at her door and they reignited things. Ly married and she'd fought hard to put their subseuent and just as hasty separation behind herAfter all these ears Rose never expected James to arrive

When she asked him why he didn t do than a few phone calls to get in touch with her and let her know he regretted terminating their marriage so abruptly he admitted that it was because he was a coward and didn t want to face rejection Not swoon worthy hero material by a long shotShe was unlikable too by the way She may not have been guilty of trapping him into marriage by faking a pregnancy it was just a false alarm but she genuinely thoughts she was pregnant but she did set out to seduce him as a result of a stupid bet with her college roommates Maybe it was kind of understandable stupidity by an 18 Period Power year old twit but she went on lying to him about their supposed common interests even after she was starting to genuinely fall for him and he confided very private and vulnerable stuff to her including the circumstances of the death of his father To betray such an intensely private serious minded nice guy like him did NOT endear the heroine to me at all and I was not impressed by her half hearted apology tenears later eitherIf fidelity assertiveness honesty and romance are a must keep clear However if Half a Wife you don t mind wishy washy passive aggressive blow hot then blow cold dysfunctional bickerfests dive in I m going against the tide on this one because while I love second chance stories this one had too many elementstropes that I dislike for me to really enjoy itNA flashba Re Husband for Real Just call me fangirl cause I adore this one from Catherine George I gave it 45 stars I love the flashbacks which detail the start of their relationship and I love that she went out jogging to get her man This one has our intrepid h who is seekritly massively in love with a seemingly unattainable H making her own little Alpha moves to get her guy while at university The H is widely know to be all about studying and rugby so the h s flatmates tell her to do some research and learn his interests to try and make him notice herThe h starts jogging and watching foreign films which are both interests of the H As she is only 18 and grooming unicorns I forgave her little deceptions which would have been very callous in an older and experienced heroine but in this instance have all the charm of a befuddled puppy trying to win acceptance Eventually after the h does a break up with the H when he wants to publicly have a relationship with her he comes after her and they become lovers As this is HPlandia all this Lurve Force Mojo in action leads the h to believe she is preggers The H jumps up to marry her but in an unusual turn of events the h is NOT preggers and then the H finds out about the h s game plan to make him notice her The big reveal does NOT go very and the h and H split up The story actually starts tenears on the H and h haven t seen each other in all this time and the h figures it is probably time to actually get a divorce She sends a letter about it to the H who is now a Captain of Banking which prompts his re entry into her life and these two destined lovers with a thing for bacon sandwiches start their relationship up again for a nice little HEA Normally I do not approve of the h chasing the H but this is the exception that makes the rule I love how he made her bacon sandwiches and then they both reminisce about them Mud and Stars years later It is those little details that make the relationship believableI thought the h s jealousy with the H s past a bit over done but srsly that was about the only tiny little flaw in this book They both had serious relationships in theears that they were apart but I did not hold it against either of them I also empathized with both sides pretty eually they both did some stupid things when they were Culture del Giappone contemporaneo young but it all worked out in the end so I was okay with it I liked how they weren t exactly the same people 10ears later they had both grown and it showed This is my favorite kinda story we the see the beginning of the relationship then move on to ears later to see how people turned out I totally believed the HEA in this one but I also believed that they needed the time apart to grow up I am not a fan of serious commitment before our 25 I never really think they will last for the long term That is another thing about this HP it felt real so I was easily able to suspend my disbelief Tho the h wasn t exactly honorable about her initial chasing after the H she wasn t malicious about it eitherThe H took his supposed betrayal a little too dramatically seriously but he was only 22 at the time so I had a lot of empathy for his suspicions too It all boiled down to both of them being massively in love and massively insecure about it It wasn t surprising that it did not work out for them the first time they were together they weren t even fully themselves Del big bang al homo sapiens yet so how could they be secure and solid for each other But the tenear gap gave them maturity wisdom and some personal insight which makes this one a nice little outing to the nicer side of HPlandi. N person to tell her that he wasn't prepared to end their marriage Was she The hurt of the past hadn't uenched her love or their mutual physical attractio.
