That first time he really seemed to have an attitude that Shelly would be better off never having kids than being a single mom What s wrong with single moms exactly She was an educated financially stable thirty two year old woman His platitudes you ll find the right man and thank me later for this really seemed cheap and The Cowboy Wants a Wife! unrealistic And hisick turnaround made me feel like Oh so making a baby isn t a big deal to you then as long as you get something out of itThe next thing I disliked was that when Shelly agreed to marry him they agreed to meet the next day to talk things over and at that meeting he simply says You ll be turning in your notice on Wednesday Kurt is a surgeon and Shelly is a physical trainer He s a bit of a workaholic and has a crazy schedule because he has to rush in a lot of the times when there s been an accident It pissed me off that on the one hand his job meant so much to him and he made clear from the start that his hours were crazy and that she would have to be accommodating but then on the other hand he totally disregards her own job Shelly puts To Defy a Sheikh up a half hearted Well I ll keep it part time and then later realizes that he was right to demand she cut down on her hours because decorating the house was taking SO MUCH of her time Heaven forbid his house shouldn t be decorated She went from a physical therapist to a woman who was spent her whole day cooking her husband s meals doing housework and catering to his spoilednhappy son s needs whenever the kid s visiting In a book that was published recently that s just not palatable for me At least The Highlander and the Wolf Princess (Legend of the Faol, until she got pregnant she should have kept the job full timeSorry if I seem like a rabid feminist Things like this will really ruin a romance novel for me though To be honest this was an okay read for me at best I did look forward to reading this but there were some things that I didn t like so much about this story First I did not like Kurt because of his freaking male ego and how he never made time for Shelly when she was pregrant Okay what That s right even a person my age should know that a doting husband SHOULD take care of his wife and be there for her Second I did not like how Shelly was a pushover and she had absolutely no growth as a character And finally the author never gaves a reason as to why Kurt hated his ex wife so much We know that she s a witch when it comes to parenting and being a wife in general but That was just it No explanation whatsoever yadaAnyway the story was medoicre at best plus the love sessions had absolutely no spark Yep it was cold as a fish I hated how Shelly did everything to make Kurt happy but he never really returned the favor What was p with that Maybe she should have loved someone else because his own reason fo. O love She's had a crush on him for years He's never thought of her as anything than his best buddy So when she offers him a solution to.
