Satisfaction was an enjoyable contemporary romance with some suspense. I didn't realize when I started the book that it was a sequel to Arousing Suspicions. I was able to feel comfortable reading the story without reading the prequel, but I believe that I would have had a better feel for some of the dynamics between the characters if I would have read Arousing Suspicions first. The characters in Satisfaction were likeable and the storyline was fast paced and had plenty of action. I liked this bo ...more

Wasn't as cracked up funny as the last one I read of hers... but I thought the suspense was good and though I thought their relationship jumped to love quickly it is hard to stretch these things out sometimes.. I am going to check for some others from her after two good ones... thought I think she goes paranormal for one or two of the series... just not my cup of tea!
I enjoyed Ethan and Georgie's story. I thought that character development was really well done and it was fun to see Ethan, whom you meet in his brother's book, so toic open and and really see his caring for both his estranged brother and love interest. Of the Darling siblings, Ethan's is my favorite. I get a kick out of his relationship with Georgie and seeing them grow together.

A yummy read!

Sparks fly when hotshot private eye Ethan Darling becomes tv chef Georgiana Mundy's bodyguard after a string of events lead those around Georgie to believe that someone from her past is out to get her.

Georgie isn't initially all that thrilled to have Ethan keeping an eye on her, and the job doesn't turn out to be quite as much of a cake walk as Ethan was expecting. But things work out nicely.

I enjoyed the overall plot, and the fact that Georgie is a chef and food is often mentioned
The plot was good as it moved along quickly. I have to admit I quit reading feng shui tips halfway through- they didn't really add to the plot.
The second in the Darling Detectives series by Marianne Stillings. Ethan Darling is hired to be the bodyguard for Georgiana Mundy, host of a popular culinary TV show.

This is what I'd call a light romantic suspense. The main focus is really the romance with a light suspense element to keep the story going. It was fun and entertaining and, well, I really liked it.

Recommends it for: Jennifer Crusie fans
I picked this book up on impulse. The author's sense of humor really shined through some parts of the story and had me laughing out loud. The plot was better than some romances but some of the development was lacking - some of the shifts felt contrived. I will be looking for more by this author. I'd recommend this author to Jennifer Crusie fan's looking for new material.

well, it's not really grand but it's an okay read. i am annoyed with the heroine sometimes, i think she is pushy as hell. if she is my friend, i would probably tell her to shut up and leave me alone, then REALLY leave her alone. but, it's a quick read, and i need quick read from time to time. so there ...
This was cute - I liked it much better than I thouhgt I would. I've been having trouble finding good Contemporary romances (at least by authors I don't know) but this was very enjoyable. The heroines obsession with Feng Shui was cute.

I haven't read anything by this author, but this sounds like a fun, light read, by a fellow DN. So I'll be keeping my eye out for this one, and others by this author as well.

Good book, I really loved the character Georgie, and thought she was perfect for Ethan.

The only complant was I felt the end was a little draged out.

Marianne entered the world in the usual way, eleven days before Christmas way back in Nineteen, uh, something. The first child born to a Santa Barbara, California heating and sheet metal contractor and a former “Rosie” (as in WWII airplane riveter), Marianne was named after a character in a book. Hmm. Auspicious? A harbinger, foreshadowing things to come?
Superfluous fact: Marianne doesn't have a
