review: Bought With His Name by Penny Jordan

What a horrid romance… and I mean, in the best possible way. This is plain crack.

The heroine is a dumb bunny, and although in the beginning shows a bit of likable spark, by the end she’s a dizzy idiot, unable to even walk upright without falling over or feeling queasy(sort of like Bella from Twilight!). Every one of her issues could be cleared up by just explaining a misunderstanding, but she refuses to tell anyone the truth about anything.

The “hero” is a total asshole. And should be arrested. Not only does he threaten to rape the heroine numerous times, but he goes so far as to say he’s going to treat her like a prostitute (maybe someone should look into unsolved murders of prostitutes around where he lives… just a tip) and that if she continues to look at him the wrong way, he’s going to make their wedding night as horrific as possible. Real charmer. Of course the heroine falls in love with him for absolutely no reason and in the end, it turns out he loved her all along! That’s why he’s so tortured and manly and anguished!

Right.
