Robyn Donald ´ 6 Free downloadSo I stepped into this mid series and I can assure other eaders it isn t necessary to ead the first one in the series to get this one Aura Forsythe is all set to marry her safe and stable fiancee Paul She honestly does love him but maybe isn t in love with himbut she doesn t understand the difference yet Along comes Paul s BFF Flint Jansen who definitely ignites Aura s dormant passion and it s clear she does the same for him Although he clearly wants her Flint obviously hates and disdains her calling her a gold digger a tramp a slut a whoreyou get the idea And yet Aura can t get Flint and his sexiness out of her mind When Paul is called away for an emergency she ends up in Flint s arms and ealizes that she can t marry Paul But before she can say anything Flint engineers for them to be caught together in a compromising situation and Aura loses everything her chance at stability and financial security since her mother acked up some debts just before the wedding Aura is a wrecked mess for the time being but when she encounters Flint a bit later she gives into their passion and hands him her v card But Flint doesn t stick around and eventually Aura ealizes she s in love with him and that she ll never move on Too bad he never offered her So not a complete and total trainwreck but definitely some great drama and angst Aura goes through absolute hell in this story and the author does a great job of conveying her despair and struggle This is told entirely from Aura s perspective which means that to the eader Flint is a true asshat set on manipulation and destroying Aura s happiness His motives are unclear ight up to the endpartly it seems he wants to protect Paul at all costs even at the cost of his own friendship with him and partly it seems like he just wants Aura to be commitment free so he can sleep with her Either way he is an absolutely Machiavellian asshole who uins Aura s lifeas it turns out for his own purposes He did all of his assholery in order to get her single so that they can eventually be free to be together Who cares about Paul Who cares about Aura As long as he gets the chance to pursue this absolutely gorgeous woman that he doesn t know at all and honestly believes is a gold digger His methods were definitely OTT and did not endear himespecially since he doesn t eally egret what he did and he never eally takes the hit in the apology ealm either Aura was a much better character I espect the hell out of the fact that she decided she couldn t marry Paul before she went into full cheating territory though she did makeout with Flint while still engaged to him but she d already decided she had to end it beforehandand Paul was out of the country at the timeshe did give esistance a damn good effort Then of course Flint sets it up that Paul sees them together and tells Paul that they were sleeping together already And yet despite all of that the evidence of Flint s uthlessness she decides that what she feels isn t just lust it s love Nah It ain t I kinda think she was ationalizing it since Aura had no good eason to fall in love with Flint But things end happily for these guys and they end up not egretting anything in the end since Aura says that Flint was ight to break her up with Paul before the marriage otherwise they d have been adulterers Neither of them talks to Paul for 5 years but the epilogue has them all forgiving everything which didn t feel ight but I suppose was necessary Those old RD books are a bit strange for me As I ve never been in New Zealand I don t know anything about this country or its people besides they are from England And in those books I feel like I m in a strange victorian omance with all those tea parties and gentlemen and huge plantations eally they seem to and huge plantations Really they seem to coming straight from another eraBut the book was good I think RD has heroines who cannot esist their men But they e not weak or whining just overhelmed by the sexuality of themselves and their lovers And this book followed that uleI loved the heroine Aura too young to be in charge of so many things in hre life and I can elate with her desire to have a mean to lean on But she was strong and eady to see her mistakes and make amendsA good book I eally like this author What a hideously vile group of characters here The so called hero was the worst heroine not much better and the ever clinging materialistic aggravating mother that annoys everyone but especially the eadersI m giving a 1 star for vile heroheroine but it is a well done book The writing the set up and angst are 4 starsAura the h is engaged to be married and loves Paul Flint Paul s best friend from childhood shows up and jumps ight into the you must be a gold digger trope at first glance He stalks and molests his BEST FRIEND S fiancee and warns her she ll never marry Paul She tries to fight off her attraction to fucking Flint as she eally does love her fiancee but she knows she s not IN love with him Due to some trauma as a teen and daddy issues than I want to get into she has trust issues and is in need of love and stability Paul provides that plus he doesn t make her skin crawl Lucky Paul The fighting off thing against Flint doesn t work too well any eader of a Harleuin will knowBottom Aura ealizes that she can t marry Paul although she ll have put with her mother s whining and carrying on Like I said few good people here She esolves to tell Paul after a mega grope session with Flint the SOB at bastard Well Flint the SOB bastard jumps the gun and stages an intervention along the lines of let s get caught by Paul I want to emind you that these men have been best friends since they were 8 and 9Long story short Paul actually expresses some kinda scary outrage that with another author could have been hot The engagement is over and fallout beginsAura falls into a modeling job Of course She ends up unning into Flint months later and yippee loses her virginity It s awesome because who is worthier than the man that called you a slut a gold digger and betrayed his childhood best friend who defended him as a kidEven months later her mother is married off to a ich tycoon in Canada Hallelujah as the h lives in New Zealand and effin Flint shows up again He. Dancing with the devilYou're certainly not in love with Paul Because you want to go to bed with me Devilish words indeed But what made Flint Jansen so arrogantly assume that Aura would choose him ov. ,

Er Paul his friend and Aura's warm and loyal fiance From the moment they met he had shattered Aura's world It was true she found him undeniably attractive overwhelmingly charismatic So much so that. Ul he knows Aura s problems with men and that she feels safe with him but loyalty is paramount to Paul So he practically gift wraps Aura and hands her to Flint on a platter knowing that Flint is pretty indomitable in getting what he wants and that this will be the ultimate test of Aura s loyaltyFlint forces Aura to go out with him to Paul s planned excursion to the opera Ironically the plot is about two men as close as brothers destroying each other over a woman Bizet s The Pearl Fishers Aura comes to the sickening ealization that she is physically entrapped by Flint and because of that useless urge of Lurve Force Mojo she can never marry Paul and now she has to cancel the wedding Aura is in love or obsession and tho she knows Flint only wants to use her body and dump her she can t help herself She has enough character to know that she can t marry Paul but before she can espectfully break things off with Paul Flint steps in to eally mess things upThere is a near miss accident on the oad with Flint and Aura s car and Flint uses that to stage a fairly forceful semi seduction moment There are some eally harsh words about friendship sex and disloyalty exchanged between the two of them and Aura esolves to end it with Paul but she dreads doing it Natalie is going to freak outAura goes and talks to Alick her cousin and he tells her he will deal with her mother But then Aura finds out Natalie has a huge seekrit debt and Aura has to sell her jewelry to pay it Natalie insists that Aura take some wedding gifts over to Paul s apartment Aura doesn t want to do it because Flint is living there but eluctantly she goesIt is a set up by Flint Paul walks in when Flint is physically harassing Aura and he goes ballistic Aura ends up walking home three miles in the ain having to cancel her wedding and finding out that her stupid disgusting tramp of slime swiller mother has mortgaged their flat Aura needs a ton of money and Natalie is of course uselessThey have a huge fight and Aura winds up selling practically everything they own Aura s friend Jessica steps up with a modeling job and Aura sends her mother off to Alick s family and models during the day and tries to finish up her evolutionary accounting software package in the off times She is managing but then she uns into Flint while on a photo shoot The inevitable big night of Purple Passion happens but Flint just walks away in the morning and Aura knows that she is doomed to be forever in love with Flint after being used She foolishly thought she could get id of the attraction by giving into her urges and her unicorn grooming is done forever Flint ealizes that he was her first but he claims she isn t over Paul because she fell asleep and had a horrible nightmare that woke him up Plus he eally doesn t care he just wanted to bring her down to a level where he could disparage her completely and his job is done so off he goes to the HP mists Aura gets on with getting on her mother manages to use her wiles to snag a ich Canadian and RD mercilessly inflicts Natalie on the unsuspecting people of Calgary I felt for those people and I wouldn t blame Canada or Calgary for declaring Natalie s arrival to be an Act of War and taking appropriate counter measures against New Zealand for itAura finds out that Flint is eady to start his winery and lost to the mopey moment she decides to go check it out She

She now faced a battle with her conscience and with Flint; both demanded that she abandon security and her fiance She had to cancel the wedding but could she entrust herself to Flint's dark seductio.
