She plays with other genres from time to time, but her first love is romance. The characters lack depth and the dialogue was stilted and forced. That was odd, almost comical.

I got a kick out of this story. Nordin does a great job with characterization. The two main characters are real, quirky, humorous, and likeable. It was a cute story from start to finish. The only thing I would suggest is a little more research on Alaska. There were a few incongruities, but those were minor in relation to the story. Overall, it was a good read. Khadija Doctor on Aug. I loved this book the best out of all Ruth Ann Nordin's books that I have read so far.
I do agree with Ms. Maahs that the start was a little slow, but it gradually became very interesting. It was funny and engaging. I think this book would help guys know the answer to the ultimate question, "What do women want? Julie Ann Maahs on April 17, After an awkward, slow start, it developed into a sweet little romance.
Yes, the hero is sort of a fantasy guy, who makes it a serious research project to find out what women want in a man. That was odd, almost comical. And yes, the premise is kind of silly.

I have read several Ruth Ann Nordin novels now. This story is categorized as a romantic comedy and I totally agree. One of the funniest moments had to have been when Ryan and Elizabeth were trying to one up each other by who could gross the other one out the most. I did think Ryan was a sweetheart. Of course through he really only read them for the sex scenes.

Oh gosh, people actually liked this book? The story is like a chick flick - actually really close to movies like the Proposal. But it drove me crazy in that it lacked description. The book was constantly "he said," "she said. Overall, I would strongly suggest you read something else - there are way better books out there. Feb 14, Nisha rated it liked it Shelves: This is the simple contemporary arranged marriage premise and abandoned in a well stocked cabin theme story.
It was quite cute, but it read like a fanfic. I liked the hero, Ryan, who happens to be a virgin. He such a good guy, even if he's little bit of a coward. I just didn't like her.
The writing isn't quality, it did no This is the simple contemporary arranged marriage premise and abandoned in a well stocked cabin theme story. The writing isn't quality, it did not sport spectacular wit or charm, but it made for a cute read that is quite irregular compared the other contemporary available. I guess, it could pass off as a harlequin if there was a pregnancy or sick family member.
Jan 26, SheLove2Read rated it did not like it Shelves: I usually find Nordin's books to be a nice interlude but this story was awful. Constant bickering, childish antics and a heroine who's so anal retentive it made me cringe. Hopefully this is a one off for Ms.
