      This is not a typical Penny Jordan. In fact I wouldn’t have put it down as one if I already dint know. It started out sweet and funny with the h trying to outwit the H on her long time bff’s (his sister) behalf. The h had a huge crush on him in her teen years that transformed into hostility as she ‘grew out’ of her crush. I liked and accepted the notion of a crush turning into bristling and hostile awareness. The h might think she is cured but that really is not the case deep down in her [...]

      Re Levelling the Score - PJ has a red haired, seekritly feisty but outwardly controlled h and a passive aggressive sorta mixed up beta H who is also a frequent sampler of the loverly lady HP buffet for this one. The h for once isn't overly neurotic, tho some readers think her behavior becomes a bit unreasonable by the end, but I liked this h and thought she did a good job of navigating around a very confusing and rather weak H. I think PJ was going for lite and fluffy funny romance here, but I h [...]

      I only liked this book when I first read it years before. My tastes must have evolved or I've become a more attentive reader because, oh my, it was lurve at second read, and third and fourth. . . . (view spoiler)[Some of my favorite Penny Jordan romances involve a plot where the hero has been in love with the heroine for years. Simon kept his love a secret from Jenna because he thought she hated him: he even tried to kiss her once at her 18th birthday party but was rejected! Although besotted wi [...]

      I loved it. Fake engagement leads to true love. Poor hero was so jealous and smitten and poor sweet heroine has been in love with our hero since forever but she had no idea he returns her feelings! Angsty and so romantic! Great read classic PJ!

    5. StMargarets on said:

      A weak three star, rounded down to two star unrequited love story with a smitten hero and a clueless heroine who is angry and snippy in her cluelessness, so that their moments of not connecting felt more wounding than angsty. The hero shows his feelings by being openly jealous, which is not a good look. There are some fun scenes (the separate trips to Cornwall to confront the sister - the client making a pass at her and the hero rescuing her) and I enjoyed watching their journey until the last a [...]

      Ummm I didn't like it too much. It was an OK reading. I am not a huge fan of "fake engagement" The plot and the reviews of other people made me curious about the story. However, it wasn't what I expected :( Hero's comments and jokes were funny at times, but I wanted him more besotted towards the heroine :) I wanted more passion and chemistry between them (ñ_ñ).He was more a betta-hero and she was Ok.

      Pretty decent HP. I would have enjoyed it more had the hero been a little more, I don't know, ballsy? He had loved this girl since she was 18 but after getting his kiss rejected at that time he never tried to pursue her so of course she still thought he didn't like her.

    8. Poonam on said:

      I really enjoy Unrequited Love stories from the Hero's end. This one fit the bill. Plus I was in the mood of a old Harle and I completely enjoyed reading this one. A short and quick read.

    9. IamGamz on said:

      I was looking for something lovely to read and found this old Penny Jordan. My first time reading it and it will not be my last. Jenna has had a crush on her best friend's brother Simon since she was fifteen. He deliberately dissuaded her from her crush and turned her against him. Many years later she is forced into a fake engagement with him and found that she was still in love with him but believed that he did not return the feeling. There was a lot of cross talk and miscommunication between t [...]

      Leveling the Score by Penny Jordan was recommended to me by KC on . I had been hankering for short reads that would deliver on the romance and the angst, something that the older Harlequin novels are famous for. I had even resorted to reading some of my favorite re-reads, books that I keep on standby for occasions just like that, where I don’t want to venture into reading anything new, all because I want to indulge in a book that I know for certain would deliver exactly what I want.Leveling th [...]

      He'd always made light of her feelingsWhen she was young, Jenna had been infatuated with Simon Townsend, her best friend's teasing brother. Then infatuation changed to a curious uneasiness, one that made her feel edgy and restless in his company.Fortunately she had little occasion to see much of him now, for, as a prominent London barrister, he moved in different circles than Jenna.

      Typical Jordan - if you've read her before, you've read this one.

    13. Roub on said:

      this was an intense read and cud easily have been a 4 or 5 star for me! however i got bored wid all the family melodrama, and i thought jenna a bit cold in her sexual attitude. i love a besotted hero when i see one ! and simon was absolutely dat! uber jealous, awfully possessive and hot! just the kinda delicious hero i love! the story seemed to drag on wid jenna not getting the meaning of a rather obvious case of unrequited love on simon's part!

    14. Dragoness on said:

      It's an okay book. My biggest problem with it is Susie, hero's sister and heroine's supposed best friend. She's been lying about heroine for years because she can't take responsibility for her own choices. Then she lied to heroine because she can't be bothered to act like someone older than 16 and they're still besties?

    15. Debra Ashwood on said:

      Levelling the ScoreHaving know each other since she was twelve. Her best friend is his sister. The sister always getting into messed where she would involve the best friend. Now the y and H must pretend to be engaged. How hard is that? What will their families say when they find out?

    16. Amara on said:

      Delicious angst. Had me squirming. But, can we all agree that sisters can't describe their brothers as "delicious"? Gross, Susie. H was swoon-worthy.

      Nem győzöm mindig elmondani, hogy ebben a műfajban Penny Jordan számomra a legjobb. Ha nem akarok zsákbamacskát, akkor mindig az ő műveihez nyúlok.A Boldogság próbaidőre kicsit hasonlít az írónő Engedélyhez kötve c. könyvéhez, de talán még attól is jobb. Lekötötte végig a figyelmemet, egyszerre volt szórakoztató, humoros, bájos, és végtelenül romantikus, mindez szimpatikus főszereplőkkel. Szívesen olvastam volna még tovább. A műfaj kedvelőinek nagyon ajánl [...]

    18. Melinda on said:

      Old fashioned of me but it's hard for me to believe that the hero loved Jenna while he was bedding all those "elegant females" that were passing through. He also states the he never went to bed with a woman that didn't mean something to him emotionally. That does not compute with him having unrequited love for Jenna at the same time he was in sack with all the OW.

    19. Marimarime on said:

      I disliked whole bunch of sudden appearances both convenient and inconvenient, as soon as they are alone someone comes along and hero seemed a bit stalkerish,wherever she goes he pops out. And though heroine isn`t too clumsy she has her moments,shivers too much as well!

    20. Dorinda Arnold on said:

      Very blahI read a lot of romance books and this was dull. The h was too opposed to the H for 99% of the book. She never had a good conversation with H and always picked a fight. Save your money.

    21. Melissa on said:

      not very much background build up and there just wasn't much chemistry between the two characters.
