Mine Tonight by Lisa Marie Perry
This was, unfortunately, my least favorite of the series. Let me break it down for you...
The Bad: I didn't like Bindi. No matter how hard I tried this was one gold digger that I couldn't dig (Okay that was a bad joke!). I didn't care for her attitude and she just didn't work for me as a heroine. I kept thinking poor Santino! You can do so much better!
The Good: I may not have liked Bindi, but I did feel sorry for her. At least after her history was explained. What foul people her parents were! I also really liked the whole story arc regarding Santino, his injuries, and his bid to get some of his old life back. I thought this was handled realistically from injuries to his future. Well done!
My Final Thoughts: I really appreciate Lisa Marie Perry as a writer. She turns out books with plots that are well thought out and well executed. I mean really, this is an author who got me to read and actually like a sports-themed romance! That said, Mine Tonight just didn't hit all of my "this is a wonderful read" buttons. This is primarily due to the heroine, who fortunately becomes somewhat likeable for me as the story comes to an end. The story ties into the previous books so you'll want to read those first to fully understand what's going on.
I'm giving Mine Tonight a 3 out of 5 rating.
