Their romance was a modern-day fairy tale: handsome older millionaire falls for struggling young waitress. Robert swept Elsie off her feet--and into his bed--put a huge diamond on her finger and spirited her away in his private jet destined for happily-ever-after.Eight years later, Elsie Kolstadt realizes the clock has struck midnight. The five-star restaurants, exclusive address and exotic vacations can no longer make up for Robert's desire to control everything. From her hair to her music, Robert has things the way he wants them. No matter what.But it's Robert's ultimate, unforgivable manipulation that finally shocks Elsie into action. Though divorce would strip her of everything, she can't live under his roof any more. Making her decision easier is Dion Carter, a high-school football coach with a heart of gold and a body of sculpted steel. Suddenly Elsie is deep in a steamy affair that could cost her everything--because Robert will stop at nothing to keep her under his thumb.
There was so much in this book that I could have loved. I see so much of Megan Hart in this book it isn't funny. When I say this I mean this author has the wonderful ability to draw you into a story but she hasn't perfected the art of keeping the lines blurred enough so people can jump into her characters (like Megan Hart).

I will keep an eye on this author because I think she has amazing talent. For now, this book didn't do it for me. Here are some other opinions:
