The Ladies' Man (Positively Pregnant #2)

She'd resolved to "act more sophisticated" and "get out more." But the rumpled bedding, the coffee brewed by other hands and The Note reminded Rachel Harper that she'd done something completely out of character. She'd brought a man home from a bar.

And apparently made a baby.

She'd been nervous to tell Carter Brockett the news. Oh, she felt strangely safe with him despite hi

Rachel, the heroine, is a conservative kindergarten teacher. She doesn't even kiss a man she doesn't know pretty well. But...the night she meets Carter Braddock she not only kisses him but she has hot sex with him and makes a decision to never see him again. Three weeks later she realizes she's pregnant. She contacts him to inform him of the pregnancy and to get him to sign away his rights to the baby. Carter isn't a marrying kind of guy and is relieved that Rachel doesn't want marriage either b ...more

I'm sorry but this book totally kills me off.

Cute story. I really enjoyed the story and the characters, however it was quite dated (getting married because your pregnant).

No me han gustado los personajes. Rachel me ha parecido una mujer caprichosa que quiere las cosas como ella quiere, cuando ella quiere. Puedo entender sus miedos e inquietudes, porque tiene un pasado bastante complicado, el problema es que no me ha parecido nada creíble y no he simpatizado con ella en ningún momento.

Carter quizás haya sido el que mejor ha caído de los dos protagonistas. Puedo entender que el amor no se le de bien y que tenga miedo de enamorarse porque piensa que nunca se va a en

The second in this series, Rachel Harper meets Carter Brockett. Both of them have trouble dealing with their relationship. Although Carter comes to his senses first, he has trouble convincing Rachel that it's okay to risk love.

A little odd, a lot of spelling errors.
Melody Cox
Rachel Harper, a naive kindergarten teacher, woke up one morning in her rumpled bed with fragrant coffee brewing in the kitchen. She had certainly stepped outside of the box when she spent the night in the arms of Carter Brockett, something she had never done before. He left her his phone number but she did not call, old fashioned not only in how she dressed but also in believing that the man should make the phone calls at the beginning of a dating relationship.

Carter Brockett is a ladies' man,
The realisations and resolutions just...the pacing didn't work for me. I liked the characters, and I know guys like this who really do stay friends with their exes and the exes become part of the family so I liked that bit. Yay polyamory! Not in the story, of course, I meant the people I know. But the pacing and resolutions cost a star. I love Mallery, but not her finest work.

Recommends it for: Everyone
Another interesting approach to romance for Susan Mallery. It's not often that the Hero is still so attached to his ex's that they remain good friends, well maybe a few but this was way more than a few. It seemed the community was quite small when in fact it wasn't which gave me mixed signals. Overall the story was good.

I liked the knitting connection.

Recommended for everyone.

Read this in a double book with Some Kind of Wonderful, light and fun. A kindergarden teacher and a police detective meet in a bar and...they're both so charming and likeable, you'll wish they lived next door.
Ninguno de los personajes era atractivo, nada interesante sobre ellos, no generan interés alguno y todo se da en un abrir y cerrar de ojos como si fuese "lo que debe ser" y por ello será así, aburrido.

It was a quick, easy read. I liked it, but didn't love it.
Jun 15, 2012 Katria rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
I'm not sure about this one. It's not as realistic as it supposed to be. I don't like that some characters especially Carter's family are being all too nice and Carter having ex girlfriends who still try to cling on to him and Rachel for being a kindergarten teacher who is stupid to be a scaredy cat in love.

It was really a very nice book. Even though I read it last and I knew some facts about what had happened, it didn't make me enjoy it less. Rachel's story was not my favorite in the series but still it was a nice one.

Fast,light read. Strong characters, great family. Totally predictable ending, but that's one of the reasons I read romance novels isn't it.

3.5 stars. it is Susan Mallory, so it is good, but a few parts are painful to me.
Pretty good story if your looking for a light read with a tiny bit of hot sex.
