Min Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet. Cal Morrisey knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again. But Fate has other plans.

I've read the book and was hooked because of the attraction and rawness of his emotions and because she could read him well. I wanted to hear if Trent would sound the way I envisioned him to. In short, good story, awful narrator.

Two weeks of vacation with her man? Hell yeah, that is exactly what Teal Lofton's libido needs. And after surviving seven months apart, their reunion doesn't disappoint. What she didn't account for was an unfortunate encounter with people from Trent's past. A racist, a druggie, and a double-barreled shotgun, culminate into a vacation that will alter the course of her life forever.

I wanted to understand Trent's anger and what he went through. His emotions had me in a vice like grip. Everything about him was intense, even the way he fell for, loved and protected Teal.

I liked the story but I had to get used the magical realism or hearing it in Spanish but I know I will read this story again. This story requires a comfortable chair with a warm wrap and no distractions.

After a case of mistaken identity, Jessica finds herself in a massive confusion kerfuffle. She has spent her whole life paralyzed by the fantasy of Beau and her assumptions of Duane's disdain; therefore she's unprepared for the reality that is Duane's insatiable interest, as well as his hot hands and hot mouth and hotter looks. Not helping Jessica's muddled mind and good girl sensibilities, Duane seems to have gotten himself in trouble with the local biker gang, the Iron Order.

Ten years ago, Lex was forced to skip town, giving up everything he'd ever known. But even his time in solitude couldn't keep away the memory of the girl he'd left behind. The girl who'd offered him her innocence, and her heart. Thea had moved on from the boy who abandoned her. Good job, fiancé, comfortable life in New York ...until everything is ripped away from her, leaving her to pick up the pieces alone.

This was a good story. Her resilience and her focus on her daughter helped her immensely. The connection and eventual love for Christian was just what she needed.

The narrator is the only one thing that I would change. She doesn't always convey the emotions needed when telling a story.

When Ryan Beecher returns home after a long deployment overseas, Lexy barely recognizes her husband. The man who left Texas for Afghanistan was cruel and abusive. The man who comes back to her is a badly injured stranger with amnesia - and no memory of their life together. Lexy can't believe how much Ryan has changed. The wounded marine is now gentle, caring, and tender - and his touch awakens yearnings she hasn't felt before.
