woman ven wheneven when no longer desires the man Sophia was so desperate for xcitement and adventure that I can t wait to read about her next I m sure her fantastical stories will be a trip And nothing but The Pocket Wife excitement can come from how her storynded in this bookThe only real disappointment for me was the misunderstandings that cropped up near the nd Both were so willing to believe that the other person didn t really want them that I got frustrated I just wanted to stick them in a room and make them talk with
each other They weren t a deal breaker for me and they didn t lastother They weren t a deal breaker for me and they didn t last a large chunk of the book so they didn t drop my grade for the book much Also sometimes those misunderstandings could be hilarious like when Jeremy was incredibly disappointed that there was no dessert for dinner The humor and the great characters have really made me ager to read the next book Hopefully I ll like that one just as muc. He must give his passions free rein Their sensual battle of wills is as maddening as it is delicious but the longer he succeeds in managing the headstrong temptress the closer Jeremy comes to losing control When scandal breaks can he bring himself to abandon Lucy to her ruin Or will he risk his heart and claim her for his own.
