Shelves: 2012-books-read
I really enjoyed this book. I especially liked the fact that the characters just didn’t fall into bed together, even though there was a very mutual, deep, attraction. The main female character has, well, “character”, ethics, intelligence, and a strong will as well as beauty and a good heart.
Will Delaney found himself the guardian and caregiver for his 5 year-old niece, Caroline, when her father, his brother, was killed in an airplane accident, a year ago. His sweet, lovable niece is withdrawn

Shelves: read-in-2012, romance
I really didn't enjoy this story and found myself anxious to just finish it. To begin with, it makes no sense to me that Will was looking to hire a tutor for Caroline. She didn't need a tutor, she needed a child psychologist. I just don't believe he couldn't find a single one that could help her. The writing was repetitive and boring and teacher Ava bothered me in how she kept telling Will "no" and then giving in. She was definitely not a strong character. Will also annoyed me a great deal... he ...more

I liked the story in this book. Will is at his wit's end trying to help his niece, Caroline, who has been withdrawn since the death of her father. He found Ava and convinced her to move to his home for the summer to work with Caroline. Will's devotion to Caroline is very moving, and I love how hard he tries. I loved the way that Ava was able to connect with Caroline and make suggestions on how to help her. My problem with the book is the relationship between Ava and Will. He is upfront about his ...more

Relentless Pursuit by Sara Orwig
5 yo Caroline has lost her father and his brother is the guardian and he's at a loss as to what to do with her as she's hiding in a shell. He confronts other professionals and hopes to hire a kindergarten teacher who will break the shell and bring her back to what she once was.
They meet and she agrees to gather some things and meet him for the plane ride back to his home in Dallas, TX. He's paying a very high price per day for her services...

Texas billionaire, Will Delaney, finds himself guardian over his five year old niece, Caroline when her dad and his brother died in a plane crash. Caroline barely talked and was withdrawn, a total opposite of the little girl he once knew and he tried everything to get the laughing little girl back. He flew to Austin from Dallas to meet Ava Barton to see her recommendations for tutors but as his eye's locked on Ava, he was drawn into her beauty as no other woman had done and he hoped to get her t ...more
Book Him Danno
The plot was a bit over the top with the need for a tutor for a niece and then hiring an over qualified teacher for 2000 dollars a day. Lavish gifts and ridiculous need and want. I wanted to like this book -I love romance, but come on even people with this kind of money don't waste it or they wouldn't have it for long.

The romance was sweet, but a bit fast for me...maybe a bit too much longing looks and throbbing manhood for my taste. And how many Billionaires are really out there and single? We
Sep 14, 2012 Carol rated it it was ok
I got this book as part of the Tell Harlequin panel. It didn't sound like something I would have bought for myself. The story did suck me in quick enough, but about half way through, it really did seem like the book was going in circles. They were having the same conversation over and over and over and over again about him wanting her, and her kissing him but refusing to sleep with him because she wanted to start a school and wouldn't have an affair with him without a commitment. After awhile it ...more

Something was missing for me in this story between the main characters and it was hard to get past.

I loved this book. Caroline is. a precious liittle five year old who became reaeved after the death of her dad. Will tried so many ways to break her out if her shell. He met with ava to choose a tutor to help Caroline and decided he wanted her in his bed and as Caroline's tutor. I loved the relationship each adult had with the child and Caroline was adorable. It wasn't long before will decided let ava go but he still do not want any commitments while ava only want something serious and then will ...more

I wasn't a fan of this book at all. The storyline focused wwwaaayyyy too much on little Caroline. (I don't really enjoy any romance that has kids in them. I think they are a real passion killer.) I was absolutely sick of reading about her reading books. It kind of reminded me of the movie "Groundhog Day" with the same scene repeating itself over and over again. I thought the "romance" between the H/h was totally contrived. This is my first book by Sara Orwig and it is probably my last.

It was a quick read with a good heart. My biggest complaint is that because of its length everything happened too quickly and rushed. The end definitely left you knowing where the next book in the series will take you.
Sep 12, 2012 Susie rated it did not like it
Received this book free. The book was awful. The conversation was stilted and didn't flow well. The story was in no way believable.
Another rating: 4/10
It was very repetitive and poor.

(read in English)
Pretty darn ordinary and boring. Just didn't work for me.
