Mick and Alice, sigh. I read this as a serial in the three parts that are being released. I have mixed feelings about the story as a whole, and this is really annoying me because Megan Hart is one of my favorite authors. But I don’t think this is the best example of her work.
So Mick and Alice used to date. They had a bad break up and haven’t communicated since. But they are still friends with the same group of people and there’s a weekend getaway coming up that they are both attending. Mick wants another chance with Alice. Alice doesn’t want to get hurt again. And that’s where they’re at in the first part. I actually enjoyed the premise up to that point, without knowing the past and what they had gone through.
As the story progresses, going back in time and what broke them up I couldn’t help but first be sympathetic to Mick. Yeah, he has some issues but wow Alice was just a bit too much and too needy for me to handle. She made me want to pull my hair out at times. But then he showed his true colors as well, and he wasn’t any better than her!
By the time we get to part 3, I just wanted a resolution. I wasn’t necessarily so invested as to the result, will they end up together or not. But I guess they are both thick-headed enough to deserve each other. Instead of growing to like the characters despite their flaws, I just wanted to be rid of them. And that is hard for me to say about a Megan Hart book.
While still showing a glimpse of Megan Hart’s flair, DON’T DENY ME just didn’t quite connect with me. I’m sure the next one she writes will!

Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
