How lucky can one girl get?
Just ask Jacqueline Croix.
She has it all. The right fiancé, money, looks, and connections.
But everything comes at a cost.
Sometimes that cost is looking the other way when the imperfections of your world start to show themselves.
When something happens that she just can't look away from, she ends up drunk in a Chanel dress at a pity party on the beach in SC. There on the beach, she finally sees the cost of having everything is too high.
Luckily, Jacqueline has one thing most girls like her do not, somewhere to run when she leaves it all behind.
That somewhere happens to be to the open arms of the New York Rangers' right wing, Mike France.
He has always been there through thick and thin, waiting for his chance to make her his.
But how do you go from being best friends to lovers, when you know all the dirty details?

以上是来自 Amazon US 的資料和簡介。

前陣子(貌似好幾個月前的事情了),亞馬遜捎來了一個信息,附送我USD3的電子書禮品卷。哦〜so sweet~3元哎,可以買到好書了! 所以其中一本就是它了。

很少看英语原文小说,所以买的时候考量是易懂的。对我的英语程度而言,只有爱情小说还勉强可以驾驭啊。這本書真的,完全不會後悔。超好看的!當時買了兩本這位作者的書,真是買對了!

故事背景

这部书故事背景有点像东方的偶像剧。说真的女主角Jack那家世显赫的背景+控制婚姻的老爸让我有点难以想象西方也有这样的家庭吗?或许吧...但也不多吧?故事背景沒有很特別,就是一些上流社會的場所,或娛樂,或生活。

角色

女主角是一位被逼婚的Jacqueline Croix,短名是Jack/JD。她爸爸为了商业利益而打算把她许配给一位男人-Phil。一开始我还以为这位Phil是男主角哎,他被JD抓到与隔壁家邻居女孩通奸的时候还说得JD在自己心中有多么重要....结果我错了,後來主角是当JD失意时,打了通电话的一位朋友-France Mike。我....還以為這傢伙是普通好朋友啊!結果他才是真正的男主角!

France這傢伙...根本就是大暖男一位。 ARGGG 作者把他寫得太癡情了吧!根本就是每個女生夢寐以求的另一半。當年他們被拆散後,France還是沒把JD忘記,他選擇默默地守護著她,偶爾接接她的電話,聽聽她的抱怨。

觸發

最後當他得知Phil是一個爛男人後,基本上他就是選擇對抗到底也要把JD搶回來。哦,太Man了。這傢伙超討喜!

故事基本上是描述他們如何為了對方而抵抗父親,JD又如何為了France而乖乖的接受被安排的婚姻。中間我實在看哭了!當France以為JD選擇了Phil而離開時,真是痛徹心扉.....

最後兩人逃出父親的魔爪後,卻出現了另一種阻礙。而他們還是很努力很努力的為了對方把事情喬好。

語錄:

  • You women are all the same, you say too much. You let us in on too many things. We’re hunters, we need the chase.
  • The years aren’t aging your face, but they’re killing your eyes. Your soul is dying.
  • “THEN EARN MY LOVE, FRANCE! STOP EXPECTING THAT YOU DESERVE IT BECAUSE WE HAVE HISTORY!”
  • “That’s what people do for you, when they love you. You don’t repay me or thank me. You let me love you.”


完。
