Gwen Lacrosse has no reason to doubt that famous novelist and infamous womanizer Luke Powers is taking advantage—romantically—of her mother. His name is mentioned in fawning terms all over her mother’s letters to Gwen, which is why she now finds herself jetting from Manhattan to her hometown on the outskirts of New Orleans.
But her mother’s new boarder is not what Gwen imagined. With an uncomplicated masculinity and searing wit, Luke makes her feel like she’s losing all of her dependable common sense—and all of her inhibitions...
Gwen comes back home to Louisiana to end her mother's affair with a writer who she thinks is merely using her, and ends up falling for the guy herself.
A premise (and plot) that could be solved with a single conversation (between mother and daughter or the hero coming clean from the start), an idiotic heroine that thinks she's all that but in the end really is just a child, and a story so paper thin it was laughable.
I rolled my eyes at the dialogues, I rolled my eyes at the heroine's inner monologues...
This certainly hasn't aged well.
