The Man She Loves to Hate

The Man She Loves To Hate (Harlequin Presents) - Kelly Hunter Since Goodreads keeps putting this book on my recommendations list, I figure I'll go on and post my review since, as it turns out, I did like this one! I gave it a B+, so we'll call it 4.5 stars. Here's what I had to say about the book at AAR:Broken record time: Harlequin Presents are my guilty little romance reading pleasures.

Jolie now makes her living as an artist in Christchurch, but when she comes home to see her mother, she also struggles with a lot of her old demons, and at the beginning of the book, she spends a fair amount of time trapped with one of them.This is a partial review, and you can find the complete text here: http://likesbooks.com/cgi-bin/bookReview.pl?BookReviewId=8579
