A love like that should be something that moves you like no other has or ever will. That is what Dalton Moss, assistant events planner, is looking for as she alternates between her polite, intellectual fiancť, Roman, and her rudely imperfect boyfriend, Jeremy.

One would think the acceptance of a huge diamond ring from Roman would help Dalton realize that her time with Jeremy should come to an end, but Dalton has never been very good at reading between the lines Ė most bad girls arenít. This time if she isnít careful, the bad girl may just finish last and end up losing both men.

A Love Like That. A love like what? If itís about love and especially a love like that, it has to be good, right? Titles can be deceptive because this is one book which leaves a lot to be desired.

Dalton is one of the most unappealing characters this reviewer has ever read about. It is hard to have any regard for a person who becomes engaged to one man while having an affair with another one and still manages somehow to find the time to have sex with yet another man whom she has known for less than five minutes. In addition, Dalton is shallow and has no conscience about her actions. She is a liar of the worst kind and is completely disreputable.

At least in her lovers, she is equally matched as Roman and Jeremy are just as unattractive. Roman and Jeremy are both cheaters as well, and this makes the entire novel seem almost like a sex swap.

A good book makes you fall in love with your characters. This story fails big time.
