Journalist Samantha Jameson always wanted to be one of the boys, but Ryan Terell won't let her join the club. Fresh from the battlegrounds of Iraq, reporting on a bunch of overgrown boys playing pro football is just the change of scenery she needs. If trying to be taken seriously in the world of sports writing wasn't hard enough, Ryan, her college crush, is only making it harder. As a tight-end for the team she's covering, he is strictly off limits.

It is odd for me to say that I couldn't finish a book. In this case the narration was so bad that I just couldn't stand it anymore. The book may have been okay (not great) but when a statement is phrased as a question and the rhythm is off it is just too hard to follow.

Gideon Cross. Falling in love with him was the easiest thing I've ever done. It happened instantly. Completely. Irrevocably. Marrying him was a dream come true. Staying married to him is the fight of my life. Love transforms. Ours is both a refuge from the storm and the most violent of tempests. Two damaged souls entwined as one.

I really liked the first three books. The 4th not as much. I had a real problem getting through this one, wondering at times if it was even written by the same person. Call me disappointed.

I am a huge fan of this author and own all of her books. Her writing style is a perfect mix of suspense and hot romance. Add to this an amazing narrator and you have a series of books worth listening to over and over.

I go through a lot of book in a month, some better than others. The narration was horrible from the beginning. I tried speeding it up and even that didn't help. I kept listening, waiting for the story line to grab me but all I got from this one was whining from both of the main characters. More than half way through I just couldn't force myself to listen anymore.

Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant. While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia.

I have read other reviews and want to say I can't agree with the negative comments. I found Josie hilarious. Her,very proper, use of the English language a riot. It is not at all like Rock Chicks or Chaos but worth the time.

In a world full of willing women, I'm a challenge to the roguish and achingly handsome Colton Donavan. A man used to getting exactly what he wants in all aspects of life. He's the reckless bad boy constantly skating that razor-thin edge toward out of control, on and off of the track.
