I love love LOVE this book!!!!
This story was absolutely fantastic. I cannot say enough good things about it.
First of all, it is so well-written on a technical level. No typos, no awkward sentences or confusing paragraphs. The dialogue was VERY realistic, and written exactly the way real people talk.
I love how Alyssa didn't react in any far-fetched ways to the series of crazy events that occurred in her life. She was very level-headed, as a real person would have to be, and didn't fall apart or freak out in the way so many other heroines do in these romance novels.
Alyssa has an 8-year-old daughter, Caroline, who was also very well-written. Caroline wasn't obnoxious, nor was her presence ever "constantly in your face." Alyssa and Grant had plenty of alone-time, sans Caroline, and yet she was still a very integral part of the plot.
The plot, by the way, was one I have never encountered before. No spoilers here, but let's just say that, true to the title, Grant has a VERY hidden agenda!
In spite of this, Grant is still totally endearing, and he's the ideal hero for Alyssa and Caroline.
The ending was absolutely perfect and left me with a smile on my face. While I have no first-hand experience with a family dynamic such as Alyssa's and Caroline's, I cannot imagine a more appropriate ending for this story.
Did I mention I LOVE THIS STORY?! :)
