    What happens when you can t get over the fact that a main character is a total douche or did something really douchey I like the idea of Some Like it Scottish, but I found the main male character to be such a jerkface jerk at the beginning of the story that I, found it difficult to forgive him, and if I can t forgive him how am I supposed to believe the heroine does Ramsey, goes out of his way to destroy Kit s business because it conflicts with what he wants to do He goes out of his way to unde What happens when you can t get over the fact that a main character is a total douche or did something really douchey I like the idea of Some Like it Scottish, but I found the main male character to be such a jerkface jerk at the beginning of the story that I, found it difficult to forgive him, and if I can t forgive him how am I supposed to believe the heroine does Ramsey, goes out of his way to destroy Kit s business because it conflicts with what he wants to do He goes out of his way to undermine her professionally, to make her feel small and generally unwanted, and it works Yet somehow Ramsay is redeemed by the power of love or Kit s magical boobies or both, turns from his wicked ways, ensures Kit s success, fulfills his dreams and rides off into the sunset wearing nothing but Kit and a kilt.I almost didn t finish this book because Ramsey was so awful and Kit was so stupid or entranced by Ramsey s turgid member that she easily looks past the fact he tried to ruin her and her business.The rest of the books is lovely, the setting of Scotland is deftly described, side characters are interesting and add depth to the story, while the premise is intriguing So, if you like books with Scotsmen, descriptive settings and redemption you will probably like this book I, myself, wanted to push Ramsey into the freezing ocean and give Kit a good shake

    It s a big yawn from me for these books, I m sorry Ms Griffin.They are incredibly boring, incredibly tedious in their poor portrayal of a Scottish village, but on the plus side, they sent me to sleep at night quickly I won t be finishing the series.
