Even in his grief the hero was a little hard to take at times. The heroine was often a doormat. However, some of the supporting characters like the teenage young man, his mother and the Englishman friend and coworker added much to the story. Sweet ending to love story with hero's acceptance of baby girl.

This single gal has had enough of the games, the BS, and the endless chase. I know what I want most, and it's not true love. It's a bun in the oven, and I'm not afraid to hit up my sex-on-a-stick coworker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty, and wild - and he's also a notorious commitmentphobe. That makes him the perfect candidate to make a deposit in the bank of me. I won't fall for him, he won't fall for me, and there's no way baby will make three. Right?

Characters are suppose to be psychologists but their lack of insight is at times remarkable. The hero and heroine are appealing and their journey to true love is enjoyable.

I liked the people in this small mountain town. The twin boys are cute and funny. The widow mom is sweet and appealing. The hero, former soldier and handyman is strong and romantic. The Retired Major and former nun are two wonderful additions to the storyline and their romance as satisfying as the widow and handyman. There is much tension when town and widow is threatened by a group of villains and saved by the hero.

The first of three novels, Into the Fury follows Ethan Brodie, who's contracted as extra security for La Belle Lingerie when their top 10 models receive threatening letters. His job: to protect the ladies - and maybe find the culprit. The one rule: no fraternizing with any of the models. Having sworn off women indefinitely, he thinks he'll be able to handle it. Then he meets Val, one of the threatened models, who's just trying to make some money, go back to school, and finish her veterinary degree.

There are several men and women featured in this story of women in danger. The characters do not have a lot of depth but they do have multiple challenges and problems they face. The lead couple are fleshed out a little more. I liked the little girl but she is not developed much and not much work is put on her relationship with her Daddy, our hero.

The four women of this book are so real and so are their heroes. I feel in love with them and do will you. The author shows problems from both sides and things are often not as simple as they seem. Finances, breast cancer, lost libido, work overload and the search for a life partner are explore from both partner's point of view. Book often offers insights into problems and possible solutions.

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Robyn Carr comes the story of four friends determined to find their stride. This honest look at marriage examines the challenges, heartaches, and sacrifices along with the joy in discovering what it means to be a wife, mother, friend, lover - and most important: your true self. Gerri can't decide what's more devastating: learning her rock-solid marriage has big cracks, or the anger she feels as she tries to repair the damage. Always the anchor for friends and her three angst-ridden teenagers, it's time to look carefully at herself.

This story follows four women as they struggle and grow as women. They face real life problems and find that they are sometimes a big part of the problem. They have to go through pain and soul searching. Then they can decide what they want to change for themselves and neither give up who they want to be or fail to see what their spouse is asking from them. These are strong love stories and strong women friendship stories.
