The main character Zoe, was weak, cruel and mean. There was no time in the book that I rooted for her. The one sister was manipulative and unlikeable. The only one that was bearable was Tristan. Disappointed doesn’t even begin to describe this.

Regan Elson is a rising Broadway star at the age of just 27. But it hasn’t been without sacrifices - her social life is practically non-existent with no room for a boyfriend in her busy schedule...she learns her window for getting pregnant has shrunk to just a few more years. No time for a romantic relationship, she instead looks for a suitable baby-daddy before the narrow window slams shut forever. But finding the perfect guy is no easy task.

The narrator was just terrible. It was hard to tell which voice he was doing sometimes. You literally had to think about who was speaking at the time. This being an erotic romance makes that a problem when the male and female voices are indistinguishable. Very unappealing. This took away from the storyline and the overall view.

Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

This book was about 8 chapters too long. It got to the point where I didn’t care if the lead characters got together or not. I was more interested in the secondary characters. I see there is at least another book about these characters but I truly don’t care enough to put myself through listening again about them n

The moment Sadie Matthews walks through the daycare center door, I feel my world tilt in her direction. Again. I fell for her when I was 14, and I’m still not over her. Problem: She still thinks of me as a teen she used to babysit. But I’ve learned a few things about pleasing a woman in the last 15 years. I can’t wait to show her how good it could be. I need to move quickly before I lose her again. This is more than a game to me, but I still plan to win.

The book started off ok, and promising. Towards the end I just skipped several chapters because I felt it just got off topic. It went to post-partum depression. I understand the importance and seriousness of this issue and she has another whole book to deal with this, but if I wanted to read about this for chapter upon chapter, I would’ve opted for another book.

Seriously, the story line could have been resolved in 2 chapters. The voice of the main character was slow, nasal, monotone and intimated a 90 year old woman that had a sad life. The only redeeming character voices were when the narrator did the other voices. I know this is an old narration and the series does get better. Authors in the future are going to have to have a say in the narrator, just like the voice overs in animated movies. Step up your game!

Socially awkward Joellen Bixby has a date every Saturday - with her cat, a pint of ice cream, and fantasies of the way-too-handsome Michael Maddox. She’d give anything to win over the unattainable CEO of her firm, but how can she when she blends in so well with her cubicle? The answer may be closer than she thinks. Cameron McGregor is a cocky, tattooed Scottish rugby captain who just moved in next door. He’s not Jo’s type - at all - but the notorious playboy is offering to teach the wallflower everything he knows about inspiring desire.

This story was so slow and never generated any angst or any sort of story line, other than the obvious, which was that this woman had body and confidence issues. Boring. I eventually skipped chapters and returned it. The woman’s voice was ok, but had as much energy as a snail. Boring

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.

Terrible! You’re spent 3/4 of the book explaining how hard it was for the main character daisy to give the father of her 15 year old son verification that he was a father! She couldn’t even manage to do it. Then she chastised her sister for stalking her soon to be ex husband when in fact she was doing the very same thing. She kept showing up at various events saying she had to speak with him, yet she never did. What a waste of talent. Do you really believe so little of your reader that you have ghost riders submit this trash? Please respect us enough to acknowledge that we have a brain. Whomever wrote this was sadly mistaken that we’d take it as the actual work of the author. It’s disjointed and shows that several people wrote it and the continuity and story and character development were of no consequence. Save your money. Do Not Buy!!!

Did either of you review this book before it was published? I refuse to believe that either of you wrote it and it was written by your ghost writers. The entire book dealt with the insecurities of this seemingly intelligent hermit, who did nothing to seek the help of experts. Every chapter dealt with the same on going issues of the female character. You could literally skip chapters and it’s the same whining issues from the previous chapters. There is nothing ingratiating or like able of any of the characters. Don’t waste your money. Penny Reid is better than this. I don’t know about Cosway. What happened? Don’t waste your money.
