STARTING OVER After serving six years in prison for the false charge of manslaughter in the death of his wife Kurt Jansen must overcome a world of bitterness if he wants to start a new life But his first priority is s FTC DISCLOSURE I won this book I think it was many years ago now but I was not reuired to write a positive review These are my honest thoughtsI couldn t get past the fourth chapter of this one The lead man was overly pushy about asking and demanding to get the job the leading lady had available It was like listening to a two year old beg for a piece of candy he d been promised after dinner long before dinner had even been cooked It was also creepy and made me wonder why in the world the lady would hire him after he d bugged her and nearly stalked her through the first couple of chaptersAnother thing that really bothered me was that the leading lady asked the man to go do her grocery shopping for her and then put the groceries away in the pantry while she was considering his bid for the job How unprofessional I cannot imagine asking someone I might hire to do a job a job which is in construction not running my home like a butler or something to run and get my groceries let alone to also put them away once he d delivered them This was very strange and unprofessional of herThe last thing that made this book impossible for me to get through was that it had already become clear that the leads were too focused on their physical attraction to each other rather than looking beyond the surface to the heart of who the person was That annoys me so much Sure we re to be physically attracted to our future spouse However I think the uality of a person s character should shine brighter than whatever package it comes inI really liked the aspect of the leading man being falsely imprisoned for a crime he didn t commit There was great potential for redemption in this story and I hope other readers are able to stick it out long enough to find it I simply have too many books on my virtual and physical shelves to waste time on books that don t hold my interest
