Daisy Lee Monroe thought she'd brushed the dust of Lovett, Texas, off her high-heeled shoes years ago, but she's come back home only to find that little has changed. Her sister is still crazy, and her mom still has pink plastic flamingos in her front yard. And Jackson Lamott Parrish, the bad boy she'd left behind, is still so sexy it hurts. She'd like nothing better than to avoid this particular man, but she can't. Daisy has something to say to Jackson, and she's not going anywhere until he listens.
Jackson learned his lesson about Daisy the hard way, and now the only word he's interested in hearing from Daisy's red lips is good-bye. But she's popping up everywhere, and he doesn't believe in coincidence. It seems the only way to keep her quiet is with his mouth, but kissing Daisy had once been his downfall. Is he strong enough to resist her now? Strong enough to watch her walk out of his life again? Strong enough to make her stay?

I'm about three-quarters through this book and I have to say I am soooo over the angst. I love Rachel Gibson novels mostly because they are fun and sexy and have characters that are easy to like. But, this one has so far been a UBER let down. Even this far into the book, I cannot make myself like or root for the heroine. I think the secret she kept from Jack is unforgivable and I cannot see this working out. All of her excuses for why she kept her secret were lame, unfounded, and completely selfish. Not only did this lowdown woman keep a horrible secret from a man she claims to have "loved, " but she married his best friend to boot. WTF, Rach? I can't help assuming at this point that any HEA would be totally forced. I want my money back. This chick is not heroine material.
*The overall 3 stars is because I enjoy listening to Kathleen Early.
This is one of my favorite Rachel Gibson books and was thrilled to see it was out on Audible now ! I loved listening to the story - it was good & entertaining. I recommend this to anyone who likes contemporary romance books. Great chemistry between the characters !
This story was perfect. Perfect pacing and characters and depth. Loved every minute and didn't want it to end. Love how Jack learned to forgive.
I didn't enjoy the characters in this story. The book was read with to much smokey breathy voice. It was hard to like Jack the main character when the voice sounded like too many cigarettes and talking sexy breathy during the regular friendly dialogue. Trying too hard to talk sexy all the time. Daisy is an idiot in this story, makes me not care want happens to the main characters unless they died..and the friends are like- I had to kill them- they were on my nerves.
This story moved way too slow. It was disappointing.
details are fine but this story was not moving at all.
Performance was okay.
The characters were fine.
It's disappointing that this book had good reviews, it hard to keep listening when nothing happens..
