Employs the h. Fakes loving her. Marries her. Whisks her to an isolated cabin in a snowstorm and plans to slave her around, making her suffer to punish her. The heroine was very sacrificing, easily seduced by the hero, quick in forgiving and should have smacked both the H and her stepsister way before the end. The hero was cruel and mean, and IMO did not grovel enough. The stepsister should be been killed- I detested her so much.
Honestly, it was an overall average read- but I love me a good, heartbreaking story- and the pain the heroine experiences after learning the truth made me gobble the book up.

One night my sister Carol came home late. Not that I believed her of course. She begged me to go to the police and say that I was the one in the car. Who knew that anyone could stoop so low!

But you caused the death of my cheating brother in law, and drove my fragile sister to suicide, and I am going to make you pay! When Meg was eighteen she was in a car accident that killed her stepmother. After the accident, Meg learns that Carol used her name to get her job, seduced her employer and tormented his sick wife.
Carol is eighteen and crazy villainous. After all that went down, the press kept hounding Meg because of the whole suicide scandal. Carol went off to live with her boyfriend and do drugs, and Meg decided she would go to another city and study business, so she could make some money and eventually study art, which is what she really wanted to do. She did own a flat, and she sold her furniture, so maybe that financed business school. Simon is a famous author and from a wealthy background, and naturally he has a private investigator on tap as one does.

Simon has it all planned out. Meg will clean the cabin, which she will hate, will cook and serve Simon his meals. He will write his book and she will think about what a horrible person she is and maybe mend her ways. He will not touch her sexually, she disgusts him.
This is all completely ridiculous. Of course no one can have a rational conversation. Everyone gets into highly emotionally charged states and insists that they are right!
And the other person is wrong, and will suffer! Meg is basically a terrible person.

Of course I loved her whole terribly wounded act, but she deserves almost every bad thing that happens to her. Simon is also a terrible person. This whole long-game revenge thing is really pretty dark. Cutting yourself off from everything with a woman you claim to despise but really want to bang, and making her cook and clean for you is ridiculous. No one should buy his books, he has no idea how people really work. Simon is quietly impressed when Meg gets to work cleaning his grotty cabin, and serves him tasty meals.
I am not. I am also not impressed when she gets physically and dramatically sick from all her emotions. Pull yourself together girl. She was a terrible person, but Meg insisted on treating her primarily as a rival, which reflected very badly on Meg. Even with all that, this book is fantastic. Meg keeps making escape attempts. Simon occasionally forgets he wants to have much hate sex with Meg and is halfway decent company. The drama builds and builds until everyone needs a lengthy time out.
Crazy, but great. Jul 02, Jenny rated it it was ok. I liked the heroine and I thought that the hero redeemed himself at the end but the relationship was underdeveloped and not a well written book. I mean the heroine falls in love with the hero from day one and that made me laugh. I like unrealistic but this one was a bit too much.

The H goes by name alone creating a case of mistaken identity and tricks the h into marrying him so he can take her to a nasty remote cabin in Colorado to enact his revenge by making her clean I didn't say it made sense. I said it was a hatefest ;D Of course Mary Sue just loves to clean and she loves being with him whether he's wiping his feet on her tush or not so his revenge backfired a little.
Reversing his proclamation that he wasn't going to consumate their marriage, he then pops her cherry and tortures her nightly by making her say she wants him before he gives her any. And in case you're curious, yes, he still thought she was a hussy, despite being a virgin. Then the irrelevant, boring stuff comes in. She receives help from a bunch of practically total strangers who are all too willing to help her find convenient food and lodging. She finally decides to tell the H about the not-so-secret baby you knew there was one, right?
