    1. The male main character was way too much of a jerk without any redeeming qualities at all for this romance to work for me Chauvinist, mean to his kids, cheats on everyone, spoiled, selfish I didn t want these two to be together at all, but then you feel bad for their children This book made me delete all of my other e book authors from my Kindle I don t feel I have time to maybe find one good read out of every 30 I try No no no.

    6. The male protagonist is such in an idiot that I didn t carry on after about 120 pages Two dimensional, hardly believable characters Won t be reading any by this author.


    7. Just excellent I have always loved Thailand anyway, and am so glad to see a good contemporary piece of fiction set there Roger D orang hutan watchers


    8. A good holiday read the fact that it s set in Thailand and Indonesia appealed to me nice enough but not particularly memorable
