Holding Out for a Hero - Vicki Lewis Thompson


Guy on cover appears to have a face made of silly putty. I'm supposed to find that appealing?!

 

I liked the kid, and I sortof liked the H. Felt bad for the h's situation but felt mostly impatient with her.

 

Apparently when she was a teen, she caught the eye of the town catch and let him sweep her off her feet. She was ok with this because he was rich. That he was a douchebag, she didn't bother to figure out until after vows were exchanged. A kid was added to this mess because reasons. Then she decided she'd had enough and divorced him. Now, because he's rich, and his father uses his money to make her life miserable, she's decided money is the root of all evil. Reading between the lines, it's *other* people's money.

 

H's age is not given, but he's built his construction company to the point it's big - really big. His attempts at dating have not been successful due to his having money - women want it more than him. So he doesn't tell the h at first. And he continues not telling her because at least once every conversation, she makes some dig about rich people. I didn't much like his deception, but under the circumstances...

 

The kid...was a pawn. His grandparents and father used him to control the h.
