I was very excited to start reading Tamara Lejeune's Surrender to Sin, the sequel to Simply Scandalous. The mixed reviews put a damper on my excitement, but - after hearing that the hero and heroine from the first book temporarily break off their engagement - I knew I couldn't rest easy until I read the book and found out what had happened with the secondary storyline. Twenty percent into the novel, however, and I couldn't force myself to continue reading. The comedy is there and the heroine is adorably sweet, but the hero is an unbelievably randy, conceited ass with no signs of changing. To make matters worse, when I skipped ahead to find out what goes wrong with the former hero and heroine I found out that the former heroine has suddenly become completely TSTL. She's visiting her favorite actor at all hours of the night and is clueless as to why her (now ex-) fiance is so upset. No more cute misunderstandings, instead they have wholeheartedly inane fights. Why couldn't their happy ending be left alone? Oh, and by the last few pages the two heroines hate each other to the point that they start calling each other "bitch"... something I severely doubt is authentic Regency behavior. The negative reviews for the third book clinches my decision - I'm tossing out this whole series as a storyline gone terribly, terribly wrong.
