    Powerful Stranger is the story of Lauren and Ryan.A sweet yet angsty romance between step siblings with an utterly smitten H, a totally oblivious h, loads of OW OM drama, crazy jealousy, the h behaving like a damsel every ten minutes and the H repeatedly proving his love, realizations and HEA I enjoyed it but the h s complete ignorance of the H s love frustrated me Safe SWME3 5

    Heroine got on my nerves after a while TSTL springs to mind, and if I read about her sophistication onetime I would have screamed I think Liked the hero though, and nice love story It s nice to have it the other way round for once, as in heroine not in love with hero and having no idea hero loves her

    I don t know why I keep reading Patricia Wilson I just find her stories way too obvious There s no tension for me when it s extremely obvious that the hero is in love with the heroine This one wasn t as bad as some others, but still not a very exciting read.

    Page 7, and there s already a beta fianc and a finishing school in Switzerland.where s my Harlequin bingo card Page 12 and we have an older step brother and mysterious paychecks that keep the heroine afloat p22 and we have the word tycoon and tyrant.p108 and we ve got a controlling, manipulative hero, a gold digger fianc , and punishing kiss.Heroine was annoying, but I couldn t put my finger on exactly why that was.Seriously, this book had it all.

    Typical harlequin where the much older stepbrother and the stepsister he helped raise hook up.It was entertaining, with lots of misunderstandings and a change of scene from England to California.
