Single dad Emmett Deverell thought moving to Jacobsville, Texas, would mean "quality time" with his children. Then he realized the truth, his kids were uncontrollable! He knew the three rapscallions needed a woman's influence. But the only female available was Melody Cartman...and Emmett trusted her about as far as he could throw her.

I felt like this was a slightly more modern DP. H wasnt quite an arse and he only occasionally smoked ;) There was a large age diff - h was 20 and H was in his 30s - seemed like late 30s. And boy did we get hit over the head about her being young. Calling her 'little one' constantly, plenty of emphasis on her virginity and his protectiveness. I liked that she wasn't a doormat; in fact, she seemed much more mature than he gave her credit for.

Real Life Romance

This is a cute story about letting go of the past, forgiveness, and love. It's one of the few romance books I've read where children don't magically disappear because the adults want intimacy, which really makes it believable. The hero and heroine both make mistakes, but have the best of intentions and work to overcome their issues. The very end made me laugh too.

I'm happy that Emmet did get his own story. Cause he and his children were funny as heck in Case of the Missing Secretary. Also by the magnificent Diana Palmer.

I did not like this book. She was given a raw deal with him. She is going to have all the work and none of the joy of having her own family because he has 3 already. I hated that! Even his ex wife who left her own kids get to have more and the heroine is left without anything but the leftovers from the ex. I have only read this book once and I would not even reread it.

A história seria simples se não fosse as três crianças.

O pai Emmett é o tipo homem que deixou a educação das crianças a cargo da esposa e quando ela vai embora ele não sabe o que fazer.

Amy e Polk são demais, adoráveis, inteligentes e extremamente engraçados, me diverti muito com os dois.
Já Guy, o mais velho, sente todo o peso da separação dos pais, está perdido, ressentido e com muito medo.

Melody é um amor, apesar de ajudar a ex-mulher de Emme

I feel like I need to stop reading these romance books for a while, I just aren't over keen on the plots of the recent ones but hope that I can get back into them soon as I still have quite a few to read.

makes a person never want children. Haha. A funny romantic caring story. building a relationship with children involved can be traumatic and this put it in perspective.

A very funny edition to the Long Tall Texans series. Some laugh out loud moments from the terrible trio of children Emmett has.

Funny. Can't imagine the Emmett and his children able to be tamed.
Decided to reread it recently, and this is definitely one of the funniest DP has written!! Such an entertaining read.

Once again, I found the story too short for any real development of feelings between the characters. What made it seem especially unrealistic was how how Melody loved Guy after the way he treated her. Love doesn't just come that deeply, or that intensely that fast.

That aside, it was an okay read.
Amanda Sheila
A little bit confusing at first. Mostly because Emmett hated Melody all of a sudden and that hate turns into love and I think it's kind of funny.
But I liked the element of children in this story. So cute. Too bad the story went too soon so it's not really my favorite.
I thought this was different to most romances because of the three your kids.

THe story was sweet and i loved that Emmett was so sweet to Melody.

Emmett is a very strong hot man who actually admits he doesn't know it all

I like Melody. I also like the children and their somewhat grumpy dad. It's probably just me but I am not one to readily accept an "instant" family with not just one but four children.
