A rare hero's POV, and what a hero.

James, our stuffy stuffed shirt was abandoned by his mother and raised by the cold father that drove her away. He's slowly slipping into his father's life: rude to his employees, an eye to what's proper, and a non-sexual dating relationship with a icy blonde cold stick named Fiona.

A spunky redhead named Patience literally jumps into his life as intermediary for the mother who was dead to him. Not only is Patience raising her pretty adorable plot moppet siblings, but she has taken on what amounts to a surrogate family in elderly renters. She's pretty cute, and ole grumpy, shut down James falls hard and fast.

It's hard to point to what makes this book so charming as the contact between James and Patience is limited. No steamy sex scenes, no ridiculous adventures. What works and makes it so poignant? James opening eyes and inner monologuing fears about turning into his father; his conflicting emotions about seeing his mother after a couple of decades, and his longing to be near and with Patience. He dodges the poor pitiful Heathcliff big fat jerk role as he is really damaged. His mother left him to the cold man that drove him away! Charlotte Lamb, as always, provides details about him as a child that humanize the cold jerk he is now. He can hear sounds of the London zoo from his home and recalls how frightened he was as a child. He thought the animals would hunt him down and eat him.

James falls for Patience and her crazy life but fights it all the way. He bonds with Patience's siblings when they show them their secret den in the garden, and Emmy, Patience's younger sister, takes him under her six year old wing and she's pretty adorable.

All in all a winner, but what stops it from being a four star is the abrupt ending and losing sight of some of the secondary characters that made this so much fun. I also had a very difficult time with the concept of the mother that could abandon a child like this. He is the product of his parents, and his mother did double damage by leaving him in the first place and leaving him with a emotionally abusive man.

P.S. On more than one occasion I had to check to make sure I was actually reading a Charlotte Lamb.

Loved it. Funny n thought provoking. Good for several giggles. Believable and nice. Wouldn't have minded it being a bit longer.

I thought this would be a good book because I like Charlotte Lamb. She should not be writing from the man's view. No storyline, no dating, no passion. It was difficult to finish the book. Do not waste your time. Patience and James do not have a storyline worth reading.

just not as good as earlier ones maybe because it was written from male perspective and not as realistically passionate
