    "Where to start.....Man I like romances but this one was all over the place. If you love someone why cheat with them. Where is the logic in that. This book made no sense in my opinion and I couldn't stand the fact that the hero feel in love with a player. He broke her so much he had her in his grasp at all times. I would recommend this book for people whom are in it only for the sex scenes but thats about it. 2 out of 10 would not read again. "
