Proof By Seduction by Courtney Milan
"She was his last chance for a future of happiness..."
I read this one in between reading some other books. I thought I'd try another Courtney Milan book since I enjoyed Unveiled. I wasn't a big fan of this book. I'd heard good things about it but I was disappointed. I'm really tired of jackasses for heroes and the "hero" of this book was 100% jackass. There was also lots of implausible plot antics. I got to the point where I just didn't care anymore. I didn't like Jenny (and I actually had to stop and think what her name even was!) and the dude, Blakely? I think he was a Duke but really he was so unlikable I'm not even going to bother describing him or anything about their romance. But I would like to say that when a man tells a woman that nobody would ever think she is as important as he is, he is DONE. I disagree that you can move forward after that kind of talk (and there is plenty). On a side note, I really liked the second story of Ned and Lady Kathleen and if they have a book telling their story I'll read that. I found myself wishing I was reading about them instead.
Overall, I do like Courtney Milan's writing style but this one did not work for me.
