When I went in to read the book I wasn't sure I would like it since both the h/H had a lot of baggage and the hero once an army Colonel and astronaut famous for rescuing 14 people, fell from grace eight years ago when he was caught cheating.

This had an impact on the heroine as well, since like many people she idolized him and had a crush on him and his fall from grace made her question her fiancee and discover that he was cheating on her with her half sister. Now, the heroine is at a c...more

This book was good, but didn't keep me hooked on a viceral level. Warning: you might want to steer clear of the "dear reader" letter at the beginning. I read the "Dear Reader" letter at the beginning, and it actually detracted from the book for me because it references the author's inspiration for the hero, who's one of America's most notorious "fallen" celebrities. It took me a while to get over that ick factor with the hero of her book and stop thinking about him as the real-life celebrity.

This was a different kind of book. Gabby needed to convince Jamison to finish the autobiography he had committed to before the scandal that destroyed his reputation. When she went to Hawk Island to confront him, he wanted nothing to do with her, refused to talk to her about it. She tried running with him (couldn't keep up). When she finally bargained him into giving her two weeks to try to convince him, she thought she'd have a shot at it. She learned how to run with him, and watched him with th...more

The book’s premise is one you don’t find so often which is exactly what made me want to read it. The hero used to be a national hero, but everything came crashing down when his infidelity was publicly displayed for the entire world to see. So yes, interesting premise, but also a tricky one, I honestly thought this was going to be a train wreck. I’m glad –and surprised- to say that against all odds, and because of a great talent, Ms. Doyle managed to...more

Fabulous book! I loved it. Great characters and great revelations at the end. Kept me guessing.
First book I've read of this author. Liked it more than I thought I would. Washed up tv host starting over at a publishing house is given the assignment to try to wrest the memoir of Jamison Hunter, a famous astronaut and even more famous cheater, who had become a recluse after news of his infidelity was all over the papers. She is determined to write the memoir with him and he is determined to send her away. She falls for him and vice versa but the story of his purported infidelity is tough to...more

can't wait for this book! Great cover too! finished this last night - great book. Great, different characters - you don't see these people in romances all that often - people with real faults and real problems. The questions kept the pages turning. Loved the secondary characters. Another great one by Stephanie!

I didn't really like the heroine, but the plot was unique and I did enjoy that.

It all started with Shanna and Star Wars. An odd combination, I know, but what people don't appreciate about Star Wars is the deep romantic element between two of the lead characters. I wasn't seven years-old when I was able to clearly spot that Han and Leia were supposed to be a couple.

Sure most of my friends, who at the time weren't nearly as mature as I was – after all some of them were still s...more
