    "Funny, but yet Hot"

    I believe many will find at one time or another they have been in similar situations as the characters within this book. It won't disappoint! With sassy characters living in a small town and falling in love with one of the Bonner men...makes this book hard to put down. You will laugh, cry, and beg for more.

    "Not SEP's best, but still good."

    I resisted this book because the summary didn't sound interesting enough. I needed a book for a road trip and decided to go for it, and I'm glad I did. Cal Bonner is one of my favorite SEP characters and I enjoyed getting to know his brothers. The only negative would be the voice of five year old Edward. I love Anna Fields and miss her voice, but she can't do kids, they end up sounding like whining babies.

    "This is soooo not like SEP"

    I've only listened to 4 of her books and when I started this one I fully expected to have laugh out loud chuckles, but all I got was one bad thing after another happening to Rachel. I have about less than 2 hours left of the book to go and I'm guessing it will all turn out for the best, but I'm tired of it. Just when you think things can't get worse one more bad thing happens. Oh, I'll suffer thru the rest just to see how she can turn Gabe Bonner into a worthy Bonner brother. The way he treats her son ... nah, I don't even think at the end of the book I'm going to like Gabe Bonner. This is the most depressing book. SEP, how could you?

    "My favorite so far!!!"

    SEP is a master at chic lit! This is a wonderful story that involves the reader in the lives of the characters. Sassy, funny, touching, and very entertaining. Loved every minute of it!
    Anna Fields brings these characters to life. SEP GIVE US MORE MORE MORE.....

    "Great Read"

    I have bought 3 of this authors books they are all stand alone really good reads. But also a thread of gentle, strong, sarastic women that make you laugh out loud. I love the storey lines and the characters are so well developed. This is a writer that is memorable. I really have enjoyed finding these books.

    "Sweet, sexy and fun"

    This is one of the sweetest books I've ever read. The characters are really deep and troubled and you can't wait to get to the end of the book to see how it all works itself out. Funny, witty, sexy, sarcastic and sweet.

    If you like the SEP books, this is a winner. If you've never read one, this will hook you.

    "Great listen"

    I love every book that this author writes and the narrator is the very best I have ever heard.

    "Bubba Gump narrates"

    The story was fine. Predictable, but cute and sexy. But I hated the narration! I started the audio book 4 times over before I finally got through it. The child's voice was awful, whiny and baby-ish. I have a 5 year old son (age of child in book) and it just grated on me. I'd have rather heard the narrator's own voice than the false baby voice she lent to Edward. I thought Gabe's voice sounded like he mumbled all the time and hadn't graduated 6th grade. You can do a southern character without making someone sound like they just fell off the turnip truck! Finally, the character of Rachel grew up in Indiana (my home state), yet she has a hick-y southern accent, too! All southern folks do not sound like this!!! Will only read SEP books from now on. I won't buy another audiobook of her's since she uses this same narrator.

    "Passes the time"


    I wanted chick lit, and this is definately chick lit, but..it is a little overly predictable, granted it fits the bill if you are just looking for something to pass the time with a familiar story line, but if you want fireworks, this is not the book..
