the fascinating, politically incorrect world of yester year s Harlequin Presents This novel was so trainwrecky that it kept me turning pages just to see what was gonna happen next Yeah this novel is not for everybody If you re an extremely somber, serious person who analyzes every romance novel for Gender Studies thesis debate topics, then stay away from this PLEASE But, if you re a joker like me, who reads drama filled, OTT novels just for a good laugh then you might have fun with this disasterfest We have a H called Mark, who is the 18 yr old heroine s big bad boss Mark is one of those super cynical and entitled chauvinists who break young Sara s heart because he s also a selfish prick He s one of those guys who are allergic to saying I Love You and are afraid to fall in love Sara is a wonderful but not too smart Mary Sue She s come to London to work in the typing pool of Astro Chemicals, which is owned by the H She lives in an old fashioned ladies hostel and is courted by an adulterous dirtbag called Dickie Gordon Dickie aka Richard White is also Mark s brother in law but our Sara Sue doesn t know that Dickie has a wife.Sara is not attracted to Dickie and only goes out with him a few times because she has no friends in London She s unaware that Dickie is only using her for his own master plan to get his wife to agree to divorce him Dickie has his own secret OW but this marriage wrecking whorebag doesn t want to be named in a public divorce scandal so Dickie decides to cultivate a friendship with the clueless heroine Sara and Dickie meet each other and become platonic pals long before she encounters the H Her relationship with Mark soon goes from the fond pseudo older brother category to full blown platonic romance The H doesn t strong arm her into a relationship but he does do a few politically incorrect things that present day readers will interpret as a mild form of sexual harassment The MC s date each other in secret, for a few months, because they don t want anyone at work to know they re together The relationship takes a dramatic turn when Mark invites Sara to spend a weekend at his love shack in the country Sara thinks it s going to be a cute platonic little trip and Mark doesn t actually come on too heavy until a make out session heats up They re about to insert body part P into V when the heroine stammers out a comment about it being her first time The asshole H goes into full retreat mode and starts to get angry we all know how these skankaholic guys have a love hate obsession with virgins Mark s shock is amusing to me This novel is set in the 70 s after all does this guy really expect this sheltered, 18 year old country girl to be an experienced sexpert The entire episode ends in an ugly argument that has me feeling a lot of pain for the poor heroine, because Mark makes demeaning comments about her innocence They return to London and their parting is hostile She doesn t see him for a week and decides to go out on a date with the Dickie the dirtbag This is all part of Dickie s big master plan of course They end up listening to music at Dickie s apartment and Sara makes a huge mistake by letting the dirtbag kiss her The H and his sister aka Dickie s wife walk in and all hell breaks loose I felt sorry for Sara and Dickie s wife because Dickie is a lying asshole who throws Sara under the bus He states calmly that Sara knew that he was married Mark believes Dickie and is mean and cruel to poor Sara He fires her Sara begs him to keep her name out of any divorce scandal and he agrees The novel actually begins 3 years after this disaster has happened Sara is back home in Coventry and she is shocked to discover that her elderly boss has sold his firm to Mark The H is now gonna be Sara s employer again Most of this new story line deals with the usual love dance where the MC s are fighting their attraction for each other but failing miserably Mark inserts himself into Sara s life and refuses to mind his own business There are the usual jealous misunderstandings about a wannabe OW called Dolores and Mark s assumption that Sara s cousin Claude is her OM In the end of the novel, Mark claims that he knew Sara wasn t involved with Dickie because he had forced the asshole to tell the truth years ago The H also adds that he had made a noble sacrifice I m holding Harold s furry head while he pukes right now to give Sara a few years to grow up before re entering her life What I find difficult to understand, however, is if this is true, then why does Mark still act like a major asshole when he does meet Sara again But, I will go with the author s rationale, of his male pride taking precedence over a minor thing as true love The author does not mention anything about Mark s sex life during the 3 yr separation period but I guess the reader can use common sense and work that out herselfThis isn t for everybody because some readers will not be entertained by the OTT drama and a H who s a bit chauvinistic But I choose not to dig deep when I read romance novels I just read this stuff to be entertained in the same way that a tacky soap opera can be riveting

    In a kingdom of dim witted, fluttering, sputtering Mary Sues, the heroine of Margaret Pargeter s Only You is the reigning idiot queen And let s not forget the pig of a hero, he was no prize either

    This novel seemed so familiar to another I ve read and for the life of me I can t remember the other novel I have read a lot of vintage harlequins, so it doesn t come as a surprise that I have no idea Anyways, it was a likable novel but the hero was all sorts of an asshole, he basically destroyed her so badly at 18, that she didn t even want to deal with another male EVER Fucked up
