A Review of Sarah Morgan’s Doukakis’s Apprentice in 250 Words Even Though That’s a Really Tiny Amount of Words
Let’s get the bad things out of the way up front:
Bad Thing #1: The title. Seriously. Is it a rule that all HPs have absurd titles that don’t match the plot?
Bad Thing #2: Continuity errors. Our hero has a sister whose name changes throughout the book. Our heroine starts off a dinner in flats, and then somehow changes out of heels into flats after the dinner. But they’re relatively minor issues.
And now the good things, which is EVERYTHING ELSE! Specifically…
While the hero is an overbearing alpha male (he’s a billionaire tycoon whose had to raise his baby sister while he was still a teenager, so of course he’s an overbearing alpha male) and prone to making hasty judgments, he’s not afraid to say he’s sorry when proven wrong, and he doesn’t insist on punishing the heroine for decisions he doesn’t agree with or actions taken by her father. Quite simply, he’s good at being Not A Jerkface, despite his alphamaleness. The author makes me believe in his apologies and his changes, and that the changes stem from a desire to do what is best, not an attempt to get the girl. (Okay, there might have been a little of that in there too…)
Aaaand I’m almost out of space. Already. But rest assured, the heroine balances out our hero very nicely. She’s intelligent, caring, and independent, while still being real and remarkably not-annoying. The plot supports the excellent characters, making for a good, if short, read.
