The smoking-hot one-night stand I was never supposed to see again? Yeah, well, I might be pregnant, and he's my OB-GYN.

What would have made The Soul Mate better?

The hero of this story is an OB/GYN who makes mistakes when he is distracted and regularly blows off appointments to chase after the heroine. This really bothered me, a man who is unable to do his job when life gets in the way is a major turn off for me.

Would you ever listen to anything by Kendall Ryan again?

Kendall Ryan is a hit or miss for me, I would be less likely to try her books after this experience.

What didn’t you like about Ava Erickson and Jeremy York ’s performance?

Jeremy York was awful. There were scenes where he voice made me incredibly uncomfortable, I kept flashing back to the serial killer in "Silence of the Lambs." I ended up speeding up the book so that his creepiness was less noticeable.

They called him Mack Daddy. No, seriously, his name was Mack. Short for Mackenzie. Thus, the nickname. Perfect, right? So was he: perfect. The perfect physical male specimen. At the private school where I taught, Mack Morrison was the only man around in a sea of women.

What was most disappointing about Penelope Ward’s story?

I didn't like or care about either of the main characters. The guy was creepy and spineless and the girl was so thinly drawn that all I remember about her is that she has red hair and a "pudgy" nose. The sex scenes were uncomfortable, and I am not a prude.

Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right? Not when it's Justin...the only person I'd ever loved...who now hates me. When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.

Any additional comments?

I liked some parts of this story but the helpless, whiny female lead drove me crazy. I also have a huge problem with characters continuing their relationships with previous partners once they have started having feelings for their ultimate "happily ever after". Maybe i'm too old for NA books, because the angst was over the top in this one!
