Good book with both fun and emotional depth. It was a little slow to start for me, but really picked up steam by the middle. Lucas is in New Orleans looking after his niece and two nephews. He had been estranged from his brother and sister-in-law for thirteen years, but when his brother was injured in Afghanistan and his sister-in-law needed to be in Virginia with him, he went. The kids don't know him at all and Lucas has no experience with kids so he is floundering. When one of the boys drives ...more

Although I expected Lucas Finlay to call Addy his brown-eyed girl, it was the bad guy who kept using that phrase, creepily so. I knew the bad guy would show up, but when he focuses his gaze on four-year-old Lottie, I wanted to scream, "NO!"

Lest you think disaster is going to strike next, rest assured that Alzheimer-challenged Aunt Flora who still carries. But I get ahead of myself.

Lucas is challenged--hilariously--by his two nephews and niece when he agrees to care for them when his former love
When I entered the contest to win a copy of this book, I didn't realize how much of a family reconciliation book it was going to be. Nowhere in the description does that appear, it's more of a "Life As We Know It" type summary, and that's something that I'm extremely interested in.

And it's not as if that doesn't appear at all, Addy and Lucas's relationship certainly does evolve around his relationships with the children, but I certainly wouldn't call it the most important part of the book. I wou

We all need to thank Liz for another wonderful addition to our reading selection. His Brown-Eyed Girl is a real page turner. Lucas and Addy bring equal parts of heat and reluctance to their budding relationship. The kids will tug at your heart and the need to see him have his brother back will surely bring tears to the hardest hearts. Give this rough photographer and skitish florist a chance to pull you in and not let go.

An uncle comes to take care of three children when his brother is badly wounded and his wife goes to be with him. A couple of problems, the kids have never met their uncle because their father married Lucas' fiance and their mother doesn't want the children to worry so she refuses to tell the children where she has gone and why. Thank heavens for the next door neighbor.

The premise was good and the story definitely had potential but I did thing the story dragged in some spots.
It was nice to see the hero and heroine evolve as the story progressed. I enjoyed the way Addy helped Lucas with the kids. The way Lucas eventually won over his niece and nephews was also sweet.
I did get a bit frustrated with Addy as she waffled a bit in her feelings.
Lucas and Addy great characters with a good story arc. Starts slowly bit picked up the pace and swept me to the end. Equal parts heat,suspense and laughs.
The children stole my heart and Aunt Flora is the scene stealer. I really enjoyed this story.

I really like that this book had 'real characters'. They weren't cookie cutter or predictable at all. The story was refreshing and full of humor with a little suspense. If you like something a little different from the standard contemporary romance then give this one a try.
I enjoy everything that I have read by this author
