Okay, this is a relatively standard romance setting and plot... but, it is so well written and the characters are so vibrant that I am sure that I will be reading more of this series.

I loved the main protagonists and the incidental characters.

It did feel slightly packed in - i.e. a heck of a lot happens in the week plus that the main characters are cut-off, but I am looking forward to the next in the series to see where it goes next.
The general story was ok but the constant repetition of the housekeeper scolding her employer (Lex) like she was a little girl is just stupid. If I had an employee that talked to me that way, they would be fired immediately. I suspect it is supposed to be cute but I found it tiresome. The story also talks about the housekeeper beating the child Lexie with a wooden spoon. I found that offensive also. Not sure how this writer was raised but that is generally unacceptable throughout the U.S.

I've read the entire Lex & Amanda series so far, and I'm very happy I did. I know there are people who find the "love at first sight" thing naive or sappy or unbelievable. But, I for one, believe it can happen. I like the fact that while there is angst in all of the books, the couple gets through it all together instead of breaking up for a bit just to find each other again. I mean, if you're going to fall in love at first sight, you should be able to handle anything together. :)

Romance, a bit of adventure, a rural setting, horseback riding, yet another headstrong lead who looks suspiciously like Lucy Lawless ... by the set-up I should have loved this. Unfortunately the writing itself got too much in the way.

I loved this book.

Great book. Of course, when the rescuer is strong, handsome and female, who would complain. Very enjoyable read.. Can't wait to get to the rest of the series.

I don't think I'll be moving on to the other books. Great idea, just not crazy about the execution.

I love a good romance and this story is a good one. I like the main characters. I like the idea of love at first sight. In particular I like the fact that Lex & Amanda see strengths in each other. Although Lex has skills that a person may envy. I also like the secondary characters. They are funny as well as interesting.
