View all 10 comments. However, the only good part of the whole book is when she talks down to him after he slept with somebody else after having sex with her.
He tells her it’s no big deal that it was her first time. Then, She tells him that he was great and hence would send her daughter to him for deflowing when she was old enough cause she knew he was useless as a mate in any real respect. He had the emotional growth of a flee and was the biggest jerk ever. It’s only when he thinks she has moved on cause that what he told her to do and that’s what he was done mcnaugh lost it.
Hence the name double standards. He can but she can’t. He didn’t deserve her and he should grovel more. I enjoyed it somewhat! View all 13 comments. Jul 13, Slavena rated it it was amazing Shelves: I really enjoyed this one. I know that Paradise rates so much higher and is considered best of Judith McNaught contemporary romance but I have to disagree.
I liked this one better. Nick Sinclair is a modern rake, successful, very sexy and with a trail of admiring wo I really enjoyed this one. Nick Sinclair is mcnuaght modern rake, successful, very sexy and with a trail of admiring women.
I liked Nick but he nudith not a typical McNaught character where he meets heroine and pursues her right away. No, he wants to have some fun but nothing beyond that. For the first part of the book we draw conclusions only from dialogue, McNaught never writes from his point of view or describes his feelings, which is what she bt in all other books I have read.
Lauren is beautiful, charming, witty and adorable. I standafds reviews where people stanrards not like her but I did like her a lot.
When she realizes that Nick is just having sstandards with her and had no intention of a real relationship she grows fast and this is when the book gets fun. I like it when heroines stir jealousy in the hero and prove him he is not all atandards. She turned into my favorite juditu — judirh hellcat: Also this book is not like your usual McNaught, I finished it in 5hrs, its not so large in volume as the rest but for me it was a good book, I would not compare it to her historicals because I think those will always be her best works but this book deserves attention too.
Jan 19, Splage rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book did it for me. I know it was outdated and definitely showed its age with some political incorrectness in sexual harassment in the office place, but I loved the story.
I thought Nick was arrogant and a user and pulled one over on Lauren. He lead her to believe he was really into her and more than a one night stand.
Since she was so innocent she didn’t realize what a rake he was, but once she did she was strong and lead him on a merry chase. I liked how he’d try to make her jealous, yet This book did it for me. I liked how he’d try to make her jealous, yet she didn’t cave until he fell hard. I love these kind of stories!! View all 6 comments. View all 4 comments. Mar 14, Mary rated it did not like it.
The main guy was a I don’t know about you but bad standrds are bad for the heart. They are also not good for the mcnaugnt. Totally a big no no for certified evil man pretending to be a hero at the end. Nick was such a completely ugly illustration of a man.
He was selfish, self-centered and egoistic. He had no redeeming point whatsoever. Judith Macnaught was trying to portray him as someone with a bad past because his mother abandoned him at a young age and as a result he treats wom The main guy was a Judith Macnaught was trying to portray him as someone with a bad past because his mother abandoned him at a young age and as a result he treats women like trash. It was a pain to read how the main girl “tried” to resist Nick but said yes to him over and over again.
Double Standards — All About Romance
The cycle never ends. It just gets more annoying and repetitive. Apr 23, Henz rated it it was ok Shelves: This is my first Judith McNaught book and though I have a problem with the story there’s no denying that the author knows how to weave her words and pull a reader’s attention.
Her lyrical prose is stunning. I am in love with it however I am not in love with the story’s ending or the Main Character’s love interest. Like I said, I love alpha males but I just really can’t put up with guys manhandling women.
There’s just no excuse unless it’s use for pleasure. I understand how couples are into kinky This is my first Judith McNaught book and though I have a problem with the story there’s no denying that the author knows how to weave her words and pull a reader’s attention. I understand how couples are into kinky stuff like that but this guy in the story is the worst; a guy who claims he loves the woman and then suddenly drops her, ruin her value just because he was hurt or felt betrayed.
Double Standards – Judith McNaught
Can’t a woman explain herself first? Can’t she at least deserved that? I would have rated this higher if I find justice for the ending but no can do. View all 8 comments.

Well the story was intriguing, but unfortunately the characters were lacking.
The book was a bit dated, as it was published inbut that really didn’t bother me. What did was the lack of connection I felt towards the characters. The story did kind of pick up near the end when the heroine finally developed a little backbone.
But the hero never really did much for me which is rare for me among JM’s books.
