Gag! worst book ever!!! (as of the moment) a weak MC. One of the first scenes, at the lake , the MC Maddie smatty dripping wet blah blah blah so curvy luscious blah blah blagag!!!!! so cheezy!! and then he ask her to marry him so he can be in his sons life. It got to a point where I was just like u know what?! this is exactly how it seems. She hooked up with him when she was young, got pregnant and rejected and ran away. He married lusted after another women (gag) and as soon as his wife dies, t ...more

Not my favorite of the series. Maddie had come back to Yella to take care of a friend. She neither expected or wanted to see Cole again. The people of the town had always looked down on her and she had been happy to escape. Cole's reappearance has shaken up her plans for her future and her desire to forget her past.

I had a hard time liking either Maddie or Cole, though I liked her marginally better. Maddie had grown up with a mother who was basically the town drunk and slut. She worked very hard

His For The Taking by Ann Major was a good book. Maddie Gray came from a poor family and her mother was a slut. Everyone though Maddie was also. As a teenager, Maddie had a summer fling with John "Cole" Coleman. Cole's family had lots of money. His mother wanted to make sure Cole married a nice girl. At the end of the summer one night Maddie went home and was raped by one of her mothers boyfriends. Maddie called Cole but his mother answered the phone and told her she wasn't good enough for Cole. ...more

Ugggg me desespero el libro esperaba más pero sinceramente todo va en picada desde las primeras páginas. Odié a los protagonistas, la madre, etc. A excepciones del hermanó la maestra e hijo. Definitivamente esperaba más.

I hated all the characters except, Noah(the son), Adam(the bastard older brother), and Ms. Jennie(the older lady teacher who knows everybody's secrets).

read it in a day. it was frustrating the way the characters went back and forth and back and forth and back and forth ... There's a lot to dislike about this book, and not many redeeming points ... was a good way to pass a lazy afternoon though.

I'm really reminded why I don't usually read Harlequin Desires, because they are usually so horribly written. I loved the description but this novel just sucked.

The story has its moments. But a predictable story.
