Then there's Colin Byrne. . . . Fifteen years earlier, Sugar Beth had tried to ruin his career. Now he's rich, powerful, and the owner of her old home. Even worse, this modern-day dark prince is planning exactly the sort of revenge best designed to bring a beautiful princess to her knees.

I appreciated this book because of the levity and the witty sarcasm.
I sometimes believe authors write more information about characters than what we care to know. In that sense, I thought the story was slow moving because of character details.
All in all, it was a decent read.

Not entirely believable, but such a fun read. The dialogue is amazingly snappy--Phillips is great at comedic writing.
