Fler böcker av Alison Fraser
The h, who is anything but a tart and was massively in love with the H three years earlier, is hurt, angry and not too keen on hearing anything from the H. That these two strike lots of sparks off each other is very clear, but we have to wait a bit to get to the big misunderstanding explanation. It turns out that the h and her sister had a poverty sticken childhood. The h tried her best to look out for her beautiful, but narcissistic, younger sibling and ultimately was pushed out of the girl's life when her looks and her HP OW ways won over a young and impressionable wealthy young man.
To the sister's great dismay, the h managed to catch the eye of the H - our wealthy young man's older brother- this drove the little sister nuts and she deliberately went out of her way to ruin the relationship. The sister's lies included letting the h go to wait for the H at a restaurant, knowing that the H had to fly out of town on urgent business with the sister's husband and had asked the little sister to let the h know.
After the h had waited for an hour and returned very upset, the sister then went on about how the H had dumped the h to go to France with another woman. Then the sister manipulated the h into visiting relatives, right after she gave the h an earful about the H's womanizing ways. To be fair, the H IS a womanizer.
He flat out says he meets ladies and if he likes them, he sleeps with them for a while and then sends them on their way. So like all good liars, the sister was injecting just enough truth into the situation to make the h believe it. The h was also uncomfortable with the H and his friends because they are all wealthy, most of the H's friends seemed to be pretty snobbish when dealing with the h, so there is a bit of social class warfare going on too.
The h's sister, loving to stir the pot further, then proceeded to tell the H that the sister has lots of men and likes to drop them for the next flavor that comes along. For some reason, this really bothers the H - apparently he is only one allowed to love em' and dump them and he takes great exception by thinking that the h dumped him first. All that is in the past tho, as the h's sister is now dead after having a darling little girl. The big problem now is that both the h and the H's widowed brother are convinced that the H is the father of the sister's child.
The H's brother refuses to have anything to do with the baby and the h is up to her ears in student loan debt and getting her final qualifications. She loves her niece, but she can't help thinking that love wasn't enough to save her sister and that the H is awfully quick to jump in and care for a child that he claims isn't his. As this is HPlandia and we need to have some H and h interaction to make the romance work, the h soon finds herself drafted to be the night time nanny for her niece in the H's house.
She does her Dr. The H flitters in and out and there is lots of taunting and near roofie kissing moments, but the h just can't seem to forgive the H for what she believes is his very bad behavior. The H has his nasty moments too, his continual accusations of the h of all kinds of absurd behavior makes the h super defensive and she refuses to answer to any of them.
The h refuses to explain that the baby her sister had at 16 was NOT her child, as the sister told the H; nor will she explain her side of what happened three years earlier.
Name That Book cont. Part II
I kinda can't fault her for the first bit, because she was trying to protect the H's brother. He had asked the h not say anything. But I found the h's belief the H had an affair with her sister and fathered her child was just ludicrous for the length of time, most of the book, that the h clung to it.
AF makes it pretty clear that the h is just trying to protect herself, so I guess I can't blame her, but the h's idiocy wasn't helping me root for this couple's HEA. Which was kinda unnecessary as this book has been one looong drawn out Mopey Moment for almost all of it. Anyhows, the H's brother gets the paternity test results and we learn that he really is the baby's daddy, the h finally figures out that her sister really was a narcissistic liar no matter how much the h loved her and that the H really does care about his brother too much to sleep with his life.
The H turns all his bad behavior around by blaming the h's insecurities and low self esteem for breaking them up - even after the h explains what really happened with the sister - and the h is so overwhelmed with the lurve force mojo that when the H claims he doesn't care if she is a tart because he loves her anyway, the two of them decide to marry and keep lurvin it up for the HEA. This book isn't too terrible, even tho I was pretty snarky about a lot of it, I did have a great time reading about the shameless antics of the deceased sister and I was touched by the adoration that the H's brother felt the first time he really looked at his baby.

What I have a harder time getting over is that the h was pretty silly in her persistent belief about the H sleeping with her sister and I had a REALLY hard time with the H condemning the h for being a tart when he was no better. Naturally we have to have some conflict to get an HP outing, but the H condemning the h so frequently throughout the story for having a fling with him and then moving on was too much for me.
He spells it out that he does the EXACT same thing, yet it is his prerogative to be a Tarty Tramp while the h is a vile cesspit of moral turpitude. I am not sure I wanted this h to even be with this H and I wasn't holding out much hope for a great relationship between them once the passion died in the future.

I did take comfort in the fact that the h, like the H, did not sit around and pine for three years - she did try another relationship, but I also wasn't really feelin' the lurve OR the HEA on this little jaunt through HPlandia.

Kate McMurry B, true. Out of about books, I think I've personally rated as 2-star reads.

On re read I upped this to three stars. Even though neither was celibate while they were apart, I kind of understood it. It was because of the lies of her sister who was a truly evil person. She lied to everyone, even to herself. I felt sorry for her sisters husband who was devastated by her unfaithfulness and couldn't look at the child that she had before she died. The H and h both bought her lies and that frustrated me too. If they just would have talked to each other but then the novel wouldn On re read I upped this to three stars. If they just would have talked to each other but then the novel wouldn't be.
I did get a little frustrated with the h because she never explained anything to him. He'd ask her questions and she'd just let him think what he wanted. I wanted to shake her. It was just all so much betrayal and all by the same person, the dead sister. She wrecked everyone's life with her lies.
