If you’re having doubts with your impending marriage, you go to a counselor. If the bastard hitting you doesn’t think there’s a need, you go to the police. You don’t run from the altar and straight into the arms of a guy you were having an affair with, do you? Oh wait. We’re in a romance novel, where common sense and proper behavior aren’t exactly on the menu.

Juliet Zaccaro is just this kind of romantic ditz, who lets her runaway gonads dictate falling into the bed of an investigator she once hired him to locate her missing sister—who wasn’t missing so much as refusing to be found. The backstory of the Zaccaro sisters winds its way through this frustrating tale of on-again off-again romance as Juliet decides to break up with her abusive fiancé when she finds herself in love with Reid McCormack and then allows herself to be swept back into Paul’s arms.

It’s a horrid mess that makes for an equally sloppy romance. Running away from the altar, she’s found by Reid who pushes himself into her hideaway in spite of her continued protests. He wanders through her home, parks himself on the couch, fixes her a meal, whirls her into a dance and then into bed…all the while ignoring her persistent, yet weakening, demands that he leave.

Isn’t that sweet? Isn’t that so ten
der you want to cry? Doesn’t it make Reid seem not much better than her jerk fiancé? Oh, no. Reid is supposed to be a better man because he cooks, makes love like a pro and is madly in love with Juliet. So his riding roughshod over her feelings and refusing to accept “no” as an answer and his promises (threats?) to track her down even if she runs again are supposed to be seen as the marks of true love.

The chest-thumping alpha male act never gets old with the ladies, it seems. But this female is rather sick of this particular behavior. When the man refuses to listen to you or allow you your personal space, it’s time to slam the door on him and get a restraining order not a marriage license.
