As You Desire

As You Desire  - Connie Brockway This book really could have been better. I liked it well enough, was a very sweet story and Harry oh Harry so heartbreaklingly heroic. (I really do seemt o have a thing for guys named Harry.) Dizzy is alright, I don't particularly like her nor do I dislike her. It is Harry who made this story great.

But something is missing. I don't know exactly what. I am sorry this is a rather useless review. I wish I could pinpoint why this book did not get a 5 stars from me because I really liked it. I did not connect emotionally, that's why. But why was I not emotionally connected....beats the hell out of me.

But I do recommend this book. Plots are good. Harry is so charming and Dizzy is a sweet heroin. The Egypt backdrop is great, very refreshing. Writing is good too. See? I cannot tell you why I did not love it to pieces. Maybe you would have better luck.
