I recently re-read this book (Johanna Lindsey’s MAN OF MY DREAMS) …and I kind of liked it. *g* Usually my only Lindsey re-reads are WARRIOR’S WOMAN (love that one), PRISONER OF MY DESIRE, and TENDER REBEL.
The hero wasn’t quite the asshole jerk that the cover suggests — oh, he was an asshole, alpha, jerk, Duke, whatever … but he also ejaculated (thisclose to) prematurely. And was like, “Oh, God,” when he did it, which totally cracked me up. But what really surprised me was that he was only twenty-nine (for some reason I thought he was in his late thirties, but it’s been at least a decade since I’ve read this), and was at times oddly insecure. It was so sweet. I also liked that the heroine talked to herself, because it made me feel less lonely for a brief, short time *single tear*.
But, anyway, there was a lot to roll my eyes at (fiery hair and temper, stomping of feet, lots of yelling and posturing, the pregnancy) but it was a lot of fun, too.
MISSY: (muffled through the closet door) Oh my god, I LOVE this cover!! I stared at it for hours, because she was so beautiful and I kept hoping to see some naked pop out from behind her head!
MELJEAN: *sobs with shame*
