I couldn't bring myself to even care about either the lead characters. I probably would have given up on the book if it wasn't short. I did end up just skimming part of the book. I felt the plot was unrealistic for someone who has experienced some physical and quite a lot of emotional abuse. I could not possibly see the lead female character agreeing to stoop so low. As the lead male character, I have nothing nice to say about him. He had no conscience and truly was no better than the man who attacked the lead female character. The only difference was that he was a handsome, wordly Greek Tycoon. He blackmailed and forced the lead female character into his bed. What was the difference, a knife held to your throat, or someone with the power to destroy not only you,but anyone associated with you?
