Started out poorly...ended up enjoyable

From Dirt to Diamonds (Harlequin Presents (Larger Print)) - Julia James

Surprisingly this turned out to be a pretty good story. I wasn't sure at first while reading this one. At first the heroine annoyed me a bit but then the hero took the cake as a class A jerk.

 

However, as the story progressed I began to like both the hero and the heroine. Once they were in the Swiss mountains the story really got better. It was nice to see a peaceful time between the hero and the heroine with no fighting, etc.

 

There were some nice angsty moments near the end after the first love scene. Quite dramatic if a bit OTT. :) However, I enjoyed it.

 

Angelos's grovelling was excellent. I truly felt like he was ashamed of his behavior and hated himself for it. Sometimes when there is a hero grovelling scene, it still feels like he blames the heroine somehow. Not in this story. His love really shined through for me in this one.

 

Julia James is sometimes a hit or miss with me. This one was definitely a hit.
