Everly is a decent heroine. She’s unabashedly kind and generous. But she’s not SO kind that she lets people take advantage of her. She let a few people know that just because she appears to be marshmallow fluff, she wasn’t going to be anyone’s doormat. I appreciate those qualities in a romance heroine.
Shepherd wasn’t an awful hero, either. I mean, he’s a bit of a cliche (it’s not like the whole-hot-billionaire-who-likes-to-dominate-in-the-boardroom-and-the-bedroom-and-who-isn’t-used-to-getting-attached-to-anyone thing hasn’t been done a million times before), but at heart, he’s a decent guy.
Now for the not-so-great stuff:
Long-story-short, this one wasn’t for me. It felt like something I’ve read a million times before. But the other reviews are overwhelmingly positive, so if it looks good to you, I say give it a read. One person’s crap is another’s treasure, and all that...
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
It’s not exactly stigma-y, but it’s definitely cliche-laden.
