Pretty dreadful plot.
If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
People that don't think very much.
Has The Dom Who Loved Me put you off other books in this genre?
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The cropping scene was quite good, even if I didn't like the plot points around it.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Yes, the book had moments and hence why I didn't give it one star, but they were few and far between in my opinion.
Any additional comments?
The major problems with this book is that the author was not smart enough to pull off the plot she imagined. You have a group of ex-special forces guys working for the CIA chasing down a supposed terrorist group. This would be ok except for the fact the CIA has no legal ground for operating on US soil. Add in that the brother of the person they are chasing is known to them, the person they are chasing they see on numerous occasions and yet for some reason they all focus on a PA instead. This made ZERO sense, as they knew who the bad guys were, but did nothing to capture them when they could have with ease. They didn't even bug the brothers office or home, but do so to hers. This again makes no sense other than to provide a reason for a romance story. I guess realism be darned.
Also, this book shows the flaws of a woman writing about men with no idea of them clearly. The men in the book all fighting over a woman unprofessionally, or punching each other at random times for very little reason. I just don't believe in it.
Then there was the spy craft in the book. It's the modern age, but at the end when they were staking out a party they have to run to and from a room a floor below to report to the guy running the operation. These are supposed to be special operation trained guys and the CIA and yet they don't even have communications tech to talk to each other?
The final straw is the relationship between the two main characters. A DS relationship is largely built on trust and honesty. In this it could not be further from that. At one point the male MC actually says, "Tell me how I lied other than my name and what I do for a living." Add in investigating her and sleeping with her under a heap of lies and I didn't believe in her responses to this at all.
Also, the male MC reads her like a book when they first meet, and again towards the end. He can tell every time she lies and knows every emotion she is feeling. Then in the middle he suddenly can't at all when it matters. It just boggles the mind the inconsistency. All in all I just found myself irritated with the plot and the characters.

Annoying H and h
The storyline wasn't that bad I just found the heroine extremely annoying. They made her out to be bratty, but I didnt see that at all. Grace was extremely weak in her mannerism. She forgave too easily for a woman who was suppose to be strong in character. What woman would allow someone even the one she suppose to have loved, let them walk out of there life with a note, then completely back in because he demanded it! What person would forgive friends who completely lie to them? It wasn't just Sean who betrayed Grace, they all did and she just forgave them, I didn't respect the character of Grace. Sean wasn't much better, he blamed everyone else for his decisions, he let his brother come between him and his woman, he didn't know what he wanted.
I wish Grace would've made them all work a lot more for her friendship and her love, she was worth more.
