I read and enjoyed the first two in this series. They were over the top but funny. This one was so over the top I made it to about 20% read and just couldn't take anymore, just too ridiculous and over over over the top with the pranks and antagonism. I don't read these for complete realism obviously, but there was no way two supposed professionals would behave like that even in a romance novel. I'll continue to sample this author, but this particular book was a real disappointment to me and was just unable to go any further to even finish it.
