Wanted--to have his baby! Madeleine never dreamed she would marry a Greek billionaire--especially one as attractive as Dimitri Kouvaris. But after a whirlwind courtship and three passionate months of marriage, Maddie is devastated to learn that Dimitri only married her in order to conceive a child. Desperate to escape the humiliating charade of her marriage, Maddie asks for a divorce. But Dimitri is determined to keep Maddie at his side--and in his bed--until she bears the Kouvaris heir.
There are days I wonder why I read these books, this book is the reason I wonder. Seriously WTF did I just read?!!!  Sometimes I love books where the miscommunication is the cause of the rife between the lovers, and eventually they realize they just aren't on the same frequency, then there are these books where it's written in a way I just can't get behind and I want to demand my time back. Ugh...

I ended up giving this just one star because there were just too many things that didn't make sense and I couldn't get behind them at all. Starting with how dumb is the main character, how is home girl so naive that she never considers the source of the information that makes her flee her husband.  Why isn't she asking herself what they gain\?? And how blind and slow does he have to be to only now be coming to the conclusion that his Aunt doesn't like the bride he's chosen?? I mean she's had a bride picked for him for years, and he had the nerve to not take her choice, so why wouldn't she be upset?? Really how dumb does he have to be??

Also why is her 'self' confidence contingent on him loving her?? Last time I check "self esteem" isn't something I can give you, only you can give that you dummy that's why it's called Self esteem. UGHHUGUGUGHGHGHGHGH Another question for you, why all the hate on women??  How exactly does it make you better?? I'm a bit of a tomboy and I wear makeup and can dress whatever part I need to. It's called being an adult biotch.   Hating on the other women who like makeup and dressing up doesn't make you a better woman, it makes you a person who sucks at those things.  And hating on others doesn't increase your sense of self so go suck a bog of sour lemons and stop judging those who have a sense of fashion.

At the end of the day I just didn't like the female character enough to care, anything about her at all. I didn't care if it worked out or not. And I totally blame this book for part of my slump.
Meh, not much there to enjoy, but I hope you have a fun reading a good book anyway. 
Happy Reading
