Flirting with FortyFlirting with Forty by Jane Porter
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Meh. The ending was a little surprising, even though I should have expected it and would have been rather put out if it hadn't ended the way it did. I think the happy ending made me add a star to the rating here. But I think this is a good example of why the first-person POV doesn't work so well in romances. Too much from one person's perspective (and in this case, waaaaay too much - I ended up skipping big chunks of her repetitive inner dialog) and absolutely nothing from the other person's POV. I think romance readers prefer (and deserve) the emotions and thoughts from both characters.
