Terri sets out to Ecuador to see her injured ex-husband at his work firmís request. But after sitting with him for a few hours she realised that the heavily bandaged man was not her ex but his boss, Ben Herrick!


This story started out well. The setting was unusual and the idea of the floating city, which was Benís brainchild, was very promising. Although the attraction between the two main characters was good, I felt that the story was padded out quite a bit to lengthen it. The descriptions of the floating city were gone over quite a bit. I also felt the problems between Terri and Ben should have been solved long before they were - they both loved each other and married at the beginning of the story but neither told the other of their love and there seemed no real reason not to. Maybe because the chemistry between them was so good it seemed strange that neither realised why.


I would have liked Terri to be a little less perfect as well! Everyone fell immediately in love with her, which seemed improbable to me. However, there isnít a lot of depth to the story; even the villainess seems a bit over the top and only put into the story to give Ben a past which didnít even ring very true somehow.


The book should have been a quick read but I found it dragged a bit despite there only being 185 pages in it. It seemed such a short story to have to pad out with over description. Although I liked the setting and the early chapters, my interest faded quickly - a disappointing read from a good author.
