Boss Man (Long, Tall Texans #28)
Blake Kemp was a man who knew his own mind and was as stubborn as the day is long in Jacobsville, Texas. As the town's leading lawyer, he had a reputation to uphold, and he didn't want the tender ministrations of his assistant to get in his way--even if he desperately needed her, since those big boots of his did have a tendency to step on toes...
So, of course, the boss man...more
1) Hero: Definitely Jerk of the year
2) Read entire book: No. I'd read bits and pieces about him in other books and I so wanted him to be one of the good jerks but he wasn't
3) Intriguing: Uh..NO
4) Do I still have the book or did I give it away to the goodwill: Uh Yeah! Throw away a Palmer book? Absolutely not!!!!! Never!!!
5) Did she jump the shark on this one: God no! I love Diana Palmer and this was just anothe...more

Blake is an a-hole, to be blunt. If any man ever insinuated that I was fat, I'd read him the riot act and probably pour something on his head. But not Violet. She was hurt for all of five seconds and then accepts any iota of "affection" Blake tosses her way. And the whole "Oh my God, I lost control and didn't use any protection" thing grates on m...more
I loved Violet. She's strong, loyal and amazing. She just loved Blake too much to notice that Blake didn't really want to marry her. Good thing that she learned about it. I felt sorry for her.
As for Blake, he's actually a good guy he just didn't want to get married not since his ex and unborn child died. B...more
Creo que hasta ahora es mi historia favorita, y es que esta es la historia donde todo va despacio y él nunca le dice te amo, aunque si lo demuestra con sus acciones.
Disfruto mucho de estas historias a pesar de son un completo Cliché, pero es que son adictivas, desde que compre mi primer Harlequin en Walmart no paro de leer a mis Texanos. Y es que saber la historia de casi todos de Jacobsville es interesantisimo.
Veamos que otro drama-Texano me tiene en un futuro Diana Palmer.
Diceritakan si pria, Blake, coba-coba mendekati si gadis, menemukan kenyataan bahwa si gadis, Violet, memang benar-benar masih polos, berusaha menghindar, menyangkal kenyataan bahwa ada sesuatu di antara mereka, dan akhirnya bersedia menghabiskan sisa hidup berdua da...more
By contrast, Violet Hardy, Blake’s secretary, is sweet and mild mannered. Whenever there is something that needs to be taken care of, it’s usually Violet who volunteers to help out. Unfortunately, Violet has been in love with Blake for some time, but...more
1. most of the male protagonists are jerks!
2. all of the girls are either virgins or inexperienced. And the guys are experienced. The girls usually wait for the one while it seems to be okay for the guys to sleep here and there.
3. most likely the guys will do something horrible like insulting the heroines, judging them unworthy, cheap and so on. Yet the heroines forgive them anyway. GAH!
I wonder what the message Palmer is trying to con...more
Blake is lost when his assistant, Violet, quit and get a new job. He felt guilty and regrets for hurting her feeling. Violet can't handle Blake's remarks anymore. She realize that she's not pretty and not slim but she want some respects and she didn't get that from Blake. She had enough and she wants to get away from him no matter how much she loves him..
Good storyline but I don't feel the chemistry. I mean, in the end, Blake still have his former finacé haunti...more
A Tentação do Desejo
No começo fiquei muito chateada com Blake, essa mania de viver do passado e não perceber, o que o destino tava colocando a sua frente, me irritava profundamente. Mas como sempre, Diana Palmer sempre da um jeito para que nos apaixone pelo mocinho da história.
E nesse caso não é diferente. Sem esquecer de mencionar que Violet é uma fofa.
Também adoro este livro, porque além do romance de Blake e Violet, que é a história central da trama, há o...more
If I had been the heroine of this story, I'd have told Mr. Blake Kemp to kiss my grits and to go and live happily ever after with his Siamese hellcats.
And then this short story would have been cut mercifully shorter. But that's just my opinion.
