Lynne Graham finishes off her Husband Hunters trilogy with a surrogate mother forced MOC book.The h in this one is an extremely naive and conservatively raised unicorn groomer The H is the Latin Lady Lover Extraordinaire who wants an heir, but is too busy sampling the lady buffet to settle with one woman.When the h s mother becomes seriously ill and the h needs money for a Bronze Standard Livesaving HP Operation, the h agrees to be a surrogate for who she thinks is a married couple who desperately want a child.Then she winds up staying in Vermont for most of her pregnancy after her mother s operation did not work and she died hence the Bronze Standard designation, HP Gold Standard is only awarded when the patient lives While the h is in Vermont, she meets a very handsome and dashing Latin American and falls madly in love then she finds out that the dashing Latin American is the single father of her unborn child and the h is devastated and betrayed.She isn t giving her beloved baby up to some lady lurving buffet sampling playboy The h heads home for England and learns about her million dollar inheritance that is only available if she marries.The H tracks her down of course and the H and h bicker over the fate of the baby The h is in England and because British law won t enforce a surrogacy contract, the H is forced to marry her This doesn t stop him from parading a string of blonde bombshells in front of the h, nor does it prevent him from threatening bodily harm to the h if she betrays him with another man.The H s on off pursuit of the h becomes a bit tedious by the end and the h s main reaction is to have a fit and then cave in The H and h have a son and huge bursts of Patented LG Tummy Melting Purple Passion But when we finally get to the H s Valenzuelan Hacienda, the green eyed demons run rampant.The H is jealous of his stable manager, who offers to teach the h to ride The h is jealous of the H s neighbor, who heavily implies that she and the H are involved in a big romance and the h is only there because she is the mother of the H s heir.The h vacillates between disbelief and despair, her love for the H has never died and we learn that the H was actually the product of an affair between his landowning father and his neighboring tenant worker mother The H s childhood was fraught with difficulties as his mother was reviled for being a tart and possession of the H was something his parents fought over, as his father made the H and his mother live on the same land that also housed his heiress wife It was a very drama ridden and angry love triangle and the H s mother died while drinking and drowning when he was nine.This has made the H very gun shy about marriage and getting seriously involved with any woman, which is why he keeps pulling and then pushing the h away But the h does her best to be a supportive wife and establish a sense of family by reuniting the H and his maternal grandfather under the guise of building a family for their son It all comes to a blow up point at the H s big annual fiesta polo match celebration The H has actually told the h he loves her at this point, but the h thinks it is just an exaggeration after being reunited with his grandfather.The Blonde OW Neighbor shows up to make her insidious play and the h decides that she should probably sort out the OW s status with the H The H had previously lambasted the h for letting her jealousy show when OW approached him, so the h has been an internal ball of misery for several chapters, because from her POV, she is damned if she does and damned if she doesn t and what is a sweet LG doormat supposed to do To both the h s and the reader s surprise, the H is all ready to kick the OW to the curb He did have a brief fling with the older lady when he was 19, but she was grasping and greedy and soon married a wealthier man than the H was at the time.Now the OW has lost her money and the H felt a little nostalgic and sorry for her, so he leased her a home and offered to pay her to be his social hostess when he was around, but he has not been sleeping with her and he doesn t really like her as a person at all.The H does a brilliant OW dismissal and kicks her out of the big fiesta, right there in front of the reader and the h With the exposure of the OW s lies, the H and h are finally able to avow their true love for each other and the h is now reassured that she and the H have a love that will last.LG finishes off with the H buying the h s godmother s old estate in England, he figures he and the h can live there when they visit We get a little reunion with all three of the h s from the series All of them are loved up, baby blessed and happy, they are all also once again the very best of friends for another pink sparkly unicorn dancing LG HP outing

The resolution and last 3 4th was unsatisfying, and left a bitter taste in my mouth.I need the last hour of my memory bleached off.Unsafe1 5

Too childish and whiny And overall it was kinda boring. shrug

    This is perhaps the most over the top, convoluted plot with a batshit crazy jealous alphabrute hero, a naive and ends up having a virgin birth heroine in a surrogacy gone wrong taking place on 3 continents the US for its crippling health care system, the UK for its surrogacy laws and of course the Venezuelan stud farm as exotic setting I love this book muchly It is funny, melodramatic and makes me shout at inanimate objects As a reader, I put a lot of value on a book that can make me shou This is perhaps the most over the top, convoluted plot with a batshit crazy jealous alphabrute hero, a naive and ends up having a virgin birth heroine in a surrogacy gone wrong taking place on 3 continents the US for its crippling health care system, the UK for its surrogacy laws and of course the Venezuelan stud farm as exotic setting I love this book muchly It is funny, melodramatic and makes me shout at inanimate objects As a reader, I put a lot of value on a book that can make me shout at the pages, shout at the ridiculous ideas expressed in the book yet stay with the book and read it all the way through because, somehow, the author writes a story that carries you along on the sea of crazy and hope that the outcome is not what you think it will be I adore Lynne Graham She is genius

    Don t like this one The h just got on my nerves with her childishness If not for the fact that for some obscure reason the H actually fell for her it will be a total disaster Like the H accused, she practically used the baby to blackmail him into marrying her and then use sex to trade for his fidelity The very fact that she ran off and broke the contract after reaping all the benefits without a thought gave me a very bad vibe, compound to that she just refused all the suggestions the H gave Don t like this one The h just got on my nerves with her childishness If not for the fact that for some obscure reason the H actually fell for her it will be a total disaster Like the H accused, she practically used the baby to blackmail him into marrying her and then use sex to trade for his fidelity The very fact that she ran off and broke the contract after reaping all the benefits without a thought gave me a very bad vibe, compound to that she just refused all the suggestions the H gave to solve the situation which sounds v reasonable considering the fact the this was not a situation he had bargained for to begin with made her seriously self centered and self serving Seriously why does he have to marry her to get access to a baby he had paid dearly for already I think I would have feltsympathetic if it was the H that suggested this in the end, I can totally understand why he was so pissed especially when she doesn t even realize what her actions and words implied Her jealousy also rubbed me the wrong way Seriously girl you are the one that coerced him into marriage what right do you have to dictate his actions when you didn t even ascertain what he feels for you first All in all the h s so whiny all through 3 4 of the book that it gets on my nerves The latter part and the ending is better, especially when this wrapped up nicely the whole series

    Gah What is wrong with me Polly was very much like a doormat for a good portion of the book, and pretty much let Raul override her every desire seriously The guy buys her a new wardrobe without consulting her, tells her that they re going to A, B and C and expects her to jump It s one thing to be utterly in love with someone, and another to willingly do everything someone tells you without any question And RAUL Good grief If I thought she was waspish, he was nasty and awful to her The Gah What is wrong with me Polly was very much like a doormat for a good portion of the book, and pretty much let Raul override her every desire seriously The guy buys her a new wardrobe without consulting her, tells her that they re going to A, B and C and expects her to jump It s one thing to be utterly in love with someone, and another to willingly do everything someone tells you without any question And RAUL Good grief If I thought she was waspish, he was nasty and awful to her The stuff he pulled out about her made my head swim.And yet I really liked the book Stupid, but I really, really enjoyed the ride I loved and hated in equal parts how utterly weak and forgiving Polly was, when it came to Raul And I loved how Raul slowly came to terms with his feelings for her, taking it beyond just showering her in gifts The OW just annoyed me no end, but I did like that she got her comeuppance, and mostly because she pretty dug her own grave I have to credit Raul for being smart enough to at least spot that, but both H and h were pretty stupid in their own way when in each other s company

    This is fairly standard for a Mills and Boon, albeit with a surrogacy thrown in for a bit of drama That s actually the most interesting part of the story, but pretty quickly once the baby s born the focus turns back to the ex mistresses and jealousy that you d expect It s quite a sweet romance though, mainly because neither of the protagonists are bad people, just ones who make questionable decisions, so I enjoyed reading about their developing relationship Not particularly exciting, but a ni This is fairly standard for a Mills and Boon, albeit with a surrogacy thrown in for a bit of drama That s actually the most interesting part of the story, but pretty quickly once the baby s born the focus turns back to the ex mistresses and jealousy that you d expect It s quite a sweet romance though, mainly because neither of the protagonists are bad people, just ones who make questionable decisions, so I enjoyed reading about their developing relationship Not particularly exciting, but a nice, romantic read for a rainy Saturday 3 stars
