Comments Not His Kind of Woman

  • StMargarets

    I was surprised by how much I liked this. Both characters were horrible, btw. The heroine was a spoiled rich girl who pursued the hero, even though she was "not his kind of woman." She was very immature and it was no surprise that their hasty marriage fell apart after she had a miscarriage. The hero showed *his* immaturity when he gave her an impossible ultimatum and didn't follow up on her after their separation. The angst really ratchets up when the H/h meet again years later. The heroine lost [...]

    Re Not His Kind of Woman - Roberta Leigh brings the angst and pain in this trainwreck of a drama and a reversal of fortune story.The book starts with a 19ish h who is spoiled, rich and has smothering, doting, demanding leech parents. She freely admits she is motivated to do nothing and she meets the young, handsome, orphaned and working for a living H at the Tate Museum where they have a difference of opinion over Pop Art.She is inane and he is brusque and blows her off. But she is now obsessed [...]

    I basically liked this one even though it had its flaws. The hero definitely should have checked up on the heroine during their 6-year hiatus. One spoiler regarding cheating, for those who want it -- (view spoiler)[there is a point where it appears that the hero had sex (lots of it) with the Other Woman shortly after having reunion sex with the heroine. I was worried this was going to end up being true, but luckily apparently the other woman lied about it. (hide spoiler)] The descriptions of sex [...]

    Despite hating Adam's character (view spoiler)[ wanting h to get an abortion, giving an ultimatum to h particularly when her parents needed her (view spoiler)[, this book actually brought tears, it was soo heartbreaking to see them reunited in that particular way. seeing them parting again and everything else that follows is just too sad!Nice plot but cruel H (hide spoiler)] (hide spoiler)]

    Read this mainly for the angst and the chemistry – and there's plenty of it. The characters pretty much deserve each other (that's neither a compliment or an insult), though the heroine essentially bore the brunt of the dissolved relationship. I don't think the hero grovelled enough at the end!

    Disgusting, left a nasty taste.
