Observations: This is the latest Harlequin Mini-Romance and I enjoyed it. It was very narrative-heavy, but that didn't bother me. It was also much more emotional than the normal Woman's World story. I wouldn't necessarily recommend leaning that way because I feel these stories from Harlequin authors are sort of a subset unto themselves.
The only thing that kind of bugged me was when he prompted her to "say something." And she said, ""Where's the waitress? I'm hungry." I often use humor to lighten up a heavy moment, but this felt weird to me. The guy had just laid his heart bare and she notices how nervous he is. So what does she do? She makes a joke. (Her matching declaration of love comes after the joke.) I felt bad for James and felt she was a tiny bit insensitive.
Other than that, though, I thought it was well done.
