*AND COLD AND RUTHLESS THE NEXT *cold and ruthless the next finally decides to confess to Ben and he insists on marriage but Katya won t do that to herself or her baby But unfortunately for Katya she and Ben do ventually resume their romance It s unfortunate because she realizes she s in love with him and leaving will be harder than And Weapons For All ever But when Katya discovers she cannot possibly leave her baby she realizes her options arever limitedstay and The Whale And The Supercomputer On The Northern Front Of Climate Change endure a loveless marriage or live apart from the man she loves while he s still a part of her life Overall a pretty good story I respect the hell out of the fact that Katya knew she didn t want to be a mother and was willing to look for solutions to her problem And the reality of the situation that was presented after she realized she changed her mind it s notasy You don t want to get married but you also don t want to cut the father out of the picture It really drove home the point that no matter what you re life is forever different because you are going to have a baby The author did an awesome job conveying the Multiple Staff Ministries emotional weight of this And while I didn t like how Katya or less freaked out and kept Ben on thedge of his seat waiting to find out if she was going to deny him his child and I didn t like that Ben used his wealth to threaten to sue for custody against Katya I can completely understand why both of them acted as they did Didn t like it but I understood it I also appreciated the fact that Ben went after Katya to apologize for his asshole behavior
So Even Though I Feeleven though I feel author did a lot of things right with the characters in this book and pretty much rocked the motional part there was something in the set up of this one maybe fact that Katya was a wealth snob or maybe that Ben was able to walk away from her the first yeah if she hadn t come after him and she HAD aborted he d never have known and they would never have had a second chance at a relationship and something about the tropes used here just don t appeal to me much That s why 3 stars I can recognize where the author did well but I still just didn t love it. For the baby’s sake But Katya soon realises that a convenient proposal isn’t nough She’s secretly longing for Ben to give her his heart as she has given him her. .
