Wicked Valentine - April Angel Snatching defeat from the hands of victory.This book was delightful: Hot, fun, playful sex and then nose dive. I was really enjoying Nina, a strong uninhibited female living her life the way she wanted. There were some maneuverings by Max to get her in his orbit the way he wanted. What follows is yummy with the tiniest hint kinky as Max tries to win Nina over. Then, as soon as the story needed to carry weight it just plummeted. Melodramatic and filled with cliches. The story was meh. It ramped up way too quick. The conflict felt contrived with a threat and illness as Max sweeps in to take care of her. Nina's now a modern woman in bed and a little girl in her life. Okay, sure. I'm still with it and then...workplace catfight...ugh. Finally, a rush to find a HEA when there hasn't been enough time for a HFN. Not my cup of tea. ~~ A copy was provided to me for a No Glitter Blown review~~Reviewed for Hearts On Fire Reviews
