There was a naked man in her bed...

And she didn't know who he was. But the strong line of his back, the curve of his neck and his tousled hair drew her even closer. Until she remembered her two kids in the car. And the mountain of luggage to be brought in. And the men her late husband had owed money to. Remembering all that gave Rachel Fuller the nerve to wake the sleeping...more

So here's the thing: when I decided to keep track on Goodreads of everything I read, I promised myself I would be honest. The good, the bad, the ugly. Everything was going up. But I almost chickened out on this one. I mean, good lord, LOOK at that cover. WHY do publishers do this to romance readers? You want a fluffy little interlude in a made up life, but you have to face total humiliation to get it.

Title and cover aside, the story isn't bad. My dignity, however, has suffered a blow.
This is the third in the MacNeill series, and it is as good as the first two.

As was true in the first two books, the storyline here is well developed, the characters are likeable and realistic. I came to care about Rachel, her children, and Sean. I also enjoyed catching up with Sean's brothers, Patrick and his Family (Patrick was the brother featured in Book #1) and Conn and his Family ( book #2).

The book has been well written and edited.

I've loved all of the MacNeill brothers, but Sean? He's something special. The youngest of the brothers, he's been drifting from job to job on construction jobsites, barely scraping by, having short term relationships with beautiful women. So why, when he meets sensible, responsible single mother Rachel is he suddenly smitten? He's a great brother and a wonderful uncle, but there's no way he wants to be responsible for a widow and her two children - that's more of a job for his dependable brothe...more

I did not like the main character Rachel's actions.

She was being threatened by small time loan sharks, but she would not seek help or advice in dealing with them. The reason she gave was that she didn't want anyone to help her because they might end up getting hurt. Sean helped her in many ways and loved her but she refused to be with him saying "I can't let you in and live with the fear of losing you." She was not following her true feelings and did stupid things. I couldn't enjoy a book with a...more
Sean is my absolute favorite of the MacNeill brothers, and I guess I wanted more for him. Rachel was so bland.....

Simple, uncomplicated, and reasonably interesting. I didn't always agree with the motivations of the heroine (stress and lack of sleep probably compromised her logic, we'll say) and there were some moments with her mother that I just couldn't get behind. Myra was either warm&fuzzy mom stereotype, or slept-around-throughout-my-childhood mom stereotype based on convenience - only she didn't really stick with either one very well. Maybe in this line the secondary characters are supposed to stay...more
Snooze. This is one of the less compelling books I've read in my recent Virginia Kantra glom. Rachel doesn't have that much to her and Sean reminds me of a pale ghost of the delicious-and-misunderstood Michael Fury from Finding the Dream. The whole 'I can't love you because of the Mob' did less than nothing for me.

Kantra has a lush writing style that I really admire and characters who are well-rounded and believable. Not to mention that her MacNeill heroes are luscious enough to eat.
I absolutly love her books!! Another great read by this talanted author!

“Sweet Mother in Heaven, please don't let me be dreaming." He raised his hand, stopping Rachel's interruption before she could get it properly started. "Or if this is a dream," he continued, "then don't let me wake up. Amen.” 5 likes
