Five years ago, Emma was Charlotte, North Carolina's darling debutante and a blushing bride-to-be. Now she's the ice queen of the Manhattan dating scene.

This is my favorite Lauren Layne book, which is saying a lot because I love all of her books. I’ve probably read this five times, I wasn’t sure if I needed the audiobook but I’m so glad I bought it. Don’t hesitate, this book is amazing!

It's not actress Lily Lamprey's fault that she's all curves and has the kind of voice that can fog up a camera lens. She wants to prove where her real talents lie - and that's not on a casting couch, thank you. When she hears esteemed director Luc Savage is renovating a legendary West End theater for a lofty new production, she knows it could be her chance - if only Luc wasn't so dictatorial, so bad tempered, and so incredibly sexy.

I didn't think I could possibly like this book as much as "Act Like it,' I was wrong. This book is excellent start to finish and I would highly recommend it.

I was so excited for this book based on the cover and synopsis. Once I started it I realized that I have read Jennifer Probst before and am not a fan. Her characters are so unbelievable, immature and annoying. I still have about an hour left in the book and I don't think I can do it.

Divorce lawyer Victoria Slade has seen enough unhappy endings to swear off marriage forever. That doesn't mean she's opposed to casual dating - just not with her cocky new neighbor, who is as gorgeous and tempting as he is off-limits. But once she agrees to take on his sister's case, she's as determined to win as ever - even if that means teaming up with Ford....

This was the first Julie James book that I waited for having discovered her after "It Happened One Wedding" was released. I worried that the buildup to "Suddenly One Summer" would lead to disappointment, it did not. I loved everything about this book!

The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

First of all this narrarator was horrible. He's good with male voices but his women are whiny and when he did the yongest boys voice I cringed. (I have a five year old boy, they don't sound like that!) As far as the story goes, I wonder if I would have liked it more if I had read it. I get that it's the first in a trilogy so there is a lot of groundwork to lay for the rest of the books but it just seemed so flat. I'm not giving up on Nora, she has brought so many wonderful stories to life and I know she can bring her magic to books two and three.

I love almost all Susan Mallery books and this was no exception, but the narrarator was awful! She sounds like an old woman which meant that it was like having my grandma read me steamy sex scenes! Her various secondary charachters ended up having weird accents that did not go with the story. Read the book yourself, don't have Gayle Hendrix do it for you!!!

Call Me Irresistible is the book Susan Elizabeth Phillips's readers have long awaited. Ted, better known as "little Teddy," the nine-year-old heartbreak kid from Phillips's first best seller, Fancy Pants, and as "young Teddy," the hunky new college graduate in Lady Be Good, is all grown up now—along with Lucy from First Lady and Meg from What I Did for Love. They're ready to take center stage in a saucy, funny, and highly addictive tale fans will love.

Logan Phillips didn't expect to like his nurse, let alone find himself attracted to her. But Melissa VanFleet's gentle humor and sweet spirit soothes the architect's frustration at his temporary blindness. He finds she's tempting him down a road he's sworn never again to travel. But a little TLC can go a long way.

Reviewed: 11-19-10

I like most of Susan Mallery's books with few exceptions, I did not like this one. It's obvious that this is an early work based on the clothing that is described, it was funny at first but once the novelty wears off it's just hard to buy into. The word that kept popping into my head as I listened to this book was plodding, the build up to romance is endless! Another thing that has always bothered me about SM is her male leads unbending and unrealistic feelings toward women based on past experiences, the lead in this book is the worst by far. A bad marriage has convinced him that all women are decitful liars, hard to believe that an intelligent man would feel that way.

An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

If I had read this book not knowing who had written it I would not have guessed that it was a Grisham novel. Most of Grisham's stories follow a similar path but this book was a complete departure from the plan. I loved the way the story flowed and the charachters drifted in and out of the narrative. I loved that I found myself questioning my long held opinions on the subject of the death penalty and I loved that Grisham shined a light on some truly backward practices in our justice system. The one thing that I didn't like was that it seemed that the main villain was the state of Texas. If you are a Texan or just a fan of the state you may be upset by many of the anti-Texas references.

When history professor Alison Carter became a consultant to the film version of the Wild West legend she’d dedicated her career to researching, she couldn’t possibly have known that she would not only get a front-row seat to a full-blown Hollywood circus but would innocently witness something that would put her life in peril. Nor did she expect that a tall stranger in a cowboy hat would turn the movie — and her world — completely upside down.
