why we couldn t just have a good time while it lasted For a man who s had a lot of relationships, you sure don t understand them, Jane observed.Now, there s two ways you can write an asshole hero Either you can commit and make him an asshole He knows he s a jerk, he knows what he s doing hurting other people and he doesn t care enough to stop.Or, you can be like Diamond and in a desperate

sure don t understand them, Jane observed.Now, there s two ways you can write an asshole hero Either you can commit and make him an asshole He knows he s a jerk, he knows what he s doing hurting other people and he doesn t care enough to stop.Or, you can be like Diamond and in a desperate attempt to make your asshole hero look somewhat appealing and forgivable make him an idiot who seemingly has NO idea how he is hurting people right and left and spends the whole book walking around with this Hurrr Durrr Huh expression on his face.It s your call, but I think the first one is the better option It s hard to read a book where the hero is an asshole AND a complete moron.I know that I sound like Nenia Campbell when I say this That s because Nenia is awesome Nenia is wayhardcore than me When she talks about assholes, she means men who are Really Bad I don t try not to read books that involve serial killers and or rapists, while Nenia gleefully devours bodice rippers and dark romances However, her theory is solid and it stands If you are writing an asshole hero, better just embrace it than try to weasel out of it.SO We have the titular Doctor Daddy, a callous cad who uses and discards women as if they were tissue but just doesn t understand their hostility towards him When he and Jane have a one night stand ten years ago in medical school, he is JUST baffled that she is not thrilled that he says, Oh, I enjoyed that I wouldn t mind a rematch sometime Jane is CLEARLY, CLEARLY someone who wants commitment, family, kids, marriage, etc The fact that he can t seem to grasp this concept or indeed, grasp the fact that anyone would object to casual sex seems ludicrous.Perhaps I could accept this ridiculous plot better if Diamond made it seem like he was unable to have sexual romantic relationships and beyond hooking up with Jane 10 years ago, his life has been a desolate emotional wasteland BUT NO She, of course, tries to convince us that he fucks dates lots of women Girlfriends flocked to him like iron filings to a magnet Luke genuinely liked women, and he d never have been deliberately cruel, but several times, Jane had comforted fellow med students and nurses who were bewildered when Luke ended their affairs as casually as if he were returning a library book.I m sorry, but there s NO WAY the females in question wouldn t talk about him and there s no way females wouldn t warn each other off him He would get a reputation PRETTY QUICKLY as a heartbreaker and a cad.Also, he is SO DUMB about sex and relationships that I was sure he was an alien or something Diamond tries to blame it on being raised in an all male household not true, he had a mom present until at least age 10 but that is bullcrap You d have to be deeply, deeply stupid to think treating women like this is okay and that all women will be perfectly fine with it It s not as if he doesn t care about women s feelings, it s as if he cannot even grasp the concept that a woman might be disappointed he s only interested in some casual sex for as long as it grabs his interest.There s a lot to hate about Doctor Daddy Not only is he a moron who treats women like Kleenex, but he is one of the most judgmental people I ve ever seen He passes judgment on EVERYONE He always knows best, he always has an opinion, and he s shocked, SHOCKED, when that opinion is not welcomed and his suggestions are not immediately obeyed At sixty seven, Hetty was overweight and suffered from diabetes.Luke had tried to give her advicethan once about eatinghealthily and the need for exercise Hetty always agreed to try, but nothing changed At his urging, she HAD consulted a physician and begun taking medication, but pills couldn t entirely undo the effect of her unhealthy lifestyle.Fuck you, nobody made you the diabetes police She has doctors, and you re not one of themBrian and I are going to move in together, she announced Congratulations Luke would have preferred to hear about wedding plans, but perhaps this was a first step.Teen mom happily calls him to tell him Boyfriend and her are moving in together, he judges them for not marrying.He hears rumors that Jane, on the cusp of 35, is seriously considering artificial insemination He informs her that being a single parent is a terrible idea, even though she didn t ask for his opinion and what she does with her body and her life is none of his business Doubly none of his business since he won t even commit to being Boyfriend He doesn t even UNDERSTAND that telling a woman who is considering artificial insemination that it is a terrible idea and that single parents suck is bad or hurtful Seriously, the author has him wondering why she reacts so negatively to his advice and simply states he s trying to be a good friend o.OHe just can t understand that other people s lives and choices are NONE OF HIS FUCKING BUSINESS.And he s seriously shocked other people don t judge him as harshly as he judges them In Jane s responses, he heard no hint of judgment, either for the accidental pregnancy or for his neglecting to tell her upfront that he had a daughter, even though, as his medical partner and friend, she might well be affected by his family situation.When his ex wife fucks up and makes a parenting mistake to be fair, it s bad he is very hard on her Even though later in the book he is going to fuck up royally as a parent, too He just doesn t make the connection or understand that his words and harsh judgment hurt people Why can t they just LISTEN TO HIM Why can t they be absolutely perfect, like he is I mean, is it so HARD Look at what happens when Jane tries to open up to him about her childhoodEven when my dad was home, I always felt like I was getting between him and a ballgame on TV I m sorry Instinctively, Luke leaned forward to touch her shoulder Having a dad like that can affect the way a woman relates to other men in her life She jerked away I have no problems relating to the men in my life Her reaction startled him.What an asshole.Every time Jane draws away from him, indicates that she doesn t want to have sex with him, or shuts him down, he always says the same thing We re reasonable adults We should be able to work this out like adults Implying, of course, that he is reasonable and acting like an adult, and she is being foolish and childish WHY won t she simply keep having casual sex with him He reminds me EXACTLY of this asshole I know and have to deal with in real life who is extremely judgmental and dickish.It s hard for me to believe he can t grasp the very simple concept of Jane wants marriage and kids Even though he KNOWS she does Even though he KNOWS she s at the point where she s considering undergoing artificial insemination I mean, I understand there is a difference between book learning and being people smart, but it s a wonder to me how this man even is alive at this point He s SO dumb SO, so, so stupid.To recap, he encapsulates everything that is a turn off to me in a man He s rich He s a doctor He s a pompous know it all who butts into everyone s business Arrogant He s extremely judgmental He s deeply stupid He s a rich doctor who plays tennis He fucks over women Whether he realizes what he s doing or not, he hurts them a lot.He s basically the anti Carmen It baffles me that Jane wants to be with this man I mean, seriously confuses me I don t care how hot he looks look at the way he treats her Look at the way he treats other people his alleged friends and family Would you want to spend the rest of your life with someone like this You d have to be crazy, or extremely desperate.And Jane IS given another offer in the book, when a neighbor a kind, patient man with sparkly blue eyes suggests they give it a go romantically But of course, she wants to hold out for the prick He view spoiler finally agrees to marry her, because this is a romance book hide spoiler but we all know in real life she d die alone, carrying a torch for a man who doesn t give a fuck about her or her feelings In fact, he doesn t even realize she has feelings.This is also inconsistent It seems Doctor Daddy can relate and emphasize to his seven year old daughter He understands her wants, needs, and why she s crying or happy He just lacks the ability to do this for literally ANYONE else.The man is SO DENSE that LITERALLY as she is pulling on her panties after he finally got her into bed after ten years, he pops this on herBut folks have long memories and it s a close knit community Luke scooped up his T shirt Why would I worry about people s long memories It s not as if I m going to be around here forever With her dress halfway on, Jane paused From her startled expression, he d gathered he d said the wrong thing Did she expect him to stay here permanently That had never been Luke s plan.How How can someone be THIS STUPID It s just not possible is it How can he NOT realize he s knifing her with this shit And he doesn t even have the decency to wait until she s fully dressed after sex to spring this on her For fuck s sake He hurts my brain Why on Earth she wants this guy is beyond meYou and I should maximize every minute we can spend together She stared at him as if he d insulted her Maximize our time How romantic Jane, why are we fighting Are you SERIOUS right now You fucked her, it took her like TEN YEARS to trust you enough to let you put your dick in her again, and then IMMEDIATELY told her you were leaving But might as well have fun while it lasts She s made it abundantly clear she doesn t do casual sex She has commitment written all over her I can t believe this man graduated from high school, much less medical school FFS From the moment Luke awoke on Saturday morning, he couldn t stop thinking about Jane About how incredibly right it had felt to be inside her About their quarrel, which they should have been able to resolve like reasonable adults.FUCK YOU How is it unreasonable or childish for her to want commitment from a man He wishedthan ever that they d spent the night together He d have loved to see the morning light on her face Why did she have to be so stubborn FUCK YOU How dare she want to be treated like a human being with feelings and hopes for the future THE HEROINE The heroine isn t perfect, either On one hand, I like how proactive she is Considering artificial insemination, considering marriage with kind men, putting herself on Match.com she isn t just mooning around over Doctor Daddy.But it annoys me how she talks about her dog Jane set out for a walk with her mixed breed spaniel, Stopgap She d picked that name because she d imagined the pooch as a fill in friend until she married and had children After that, she d vaguely pictured him shepherding her kids like Nana, the dog in PETER PAN..It also lowers my opinion of her considerably that she is so romantically and emotionally wrapped up in this piece of trash named Luke Sad that she has so low opinion of herself that she has her heart set on this joker.How s the sex, Carmen Too flowery for me Luke brushed back her hair, his gaze scorching across her face Then he explored her lips with his until fire blossomed within her and they gripped each other with pure liquid longing.How about this When his hardness slid inside her, Jane thought she might soar right through the roof Thank heaven for his anchoring weight and the ferocity of his thrusts.Their movements quickened, and then, in a moment of utter joy, they fused, purifying like ore into gold Jane arched against him and shudders racked them both.But they do use a condom That s good Although she probably wants to be pregnant with this moron s baby, for some reason Diamond does make other strange writing choices, occasionally For example, she tries to convince us that female med students and nurses called Luke Doctor Daddy Luke the Duke I mean, come on They did not o.O That s just NOT even remotely realistic.Also, she has baffling paragraphs like this The unit lay within walking distance of shops, cinemas and a comedy club It ought to be perfect for a bachelor who entertained hot and cold running women Make that hot, exclusively.What.Tl dr This book has a lot of problems but its main one is that Luke is an asshole AND the biggest moron you ve ever seen This is extremely frustrating You absolutely cannot understand why Jane finds him appealing Unless you want to say she married him for the sole reason of being a mother to his two daughters Skip this book and keep your sanity Full Credit to the Comics CurmudgeonROMANCE CATEGORIES Contemporary RomanceNon Virgin Heroine This book was okay I just never felt like the hero really was in love with the heroine even at the end of the book. I don t know why but I couldn t help being bored when I was a quarter of the way into the novel It seemed like everything just slowed down The story overall as a whole was indeed likable, however there were some points were I just lost all sense for the story My most negative comments would be, I felt very little emotion to the characters and the heroine was weak Just because of the hero, she decided not to get inseminated If I wanted a baby enough, I would of done it hero or not The silly I don t know why but I couldn t help being bored when I was a quarter of the way into the novel It seemed like everything just slowed down The story overall as a whole was indeed likable, however there were some points were I just lost all sense for the story My most negative comments would be, I felt very little emotion to the characters and the heroine was weak Just because of the hero, she decided not to get inseminated If I wanted a baby enough, I would of done it hero or not The silly part was at the time where she decided against it, the hero had no claim on her and didn t seem to want one Go figure
