An Unforgettable Lady by Jessica Bird
J.R Ward is always a winner. No matter if she writing as herself or under Jessica Bird, her books are killer, 100 percent gold. I have yet to read a book by her that I did not like, which is saying something pretty big, since she has so many novels under her belt.
An Unforgettable Lady is a book that romance lovers cannot miss. Especially is your a suspense and mystery lover also.
Wealthy, gorgeous sophisticated woman meets a hard, wounded and unchangeable male.
At first you think, "okay, this isn't too original.." but it really is.
The only thing not original about it is the males name, John Smith. It's pretty funny actually.
John is a hard headed man, with a face and body anyone could love, but he isn't interested. That is of course until the beautiful Grace Hall walks into the room and he can't keep his eyes off her. He may think she's off limits to him, but that doesn't mean he can't look. And does he look!
At times, I found myself wanting to yell at John, he could be mean and rude and so... Hard headed. I guess that's just men for you. But although he was mean, I could see where he was coming from when he would lash out or say things he regretted. He was confused and hurt, and not used to feeling anything for anyone. And Grace made his mind and heart do a 180.
Grace a a great character. She's strong and smart, but not a kick butt type of heroine, which I liked for a change. She's not weak, but she is vulnerable. Everything is her life is making her just about to snap, between her dying father, her unhelpful, soon to be ex husband and now a death threat made out her her and all her friends, her life really seems to be going down hill. She is grateful for Johns help, and feels more protected from bodily harm, but she may be in some other kind of trouble when it comes to Mr. Smith.
What a book! I love, love, loved An Unforgettable Lady. Romance at it's finest, Jessica Bird is one hell of a writer. I'm so glad I read this book. I recommend that you do too!
