I wanted a quick mindless read and that is what this book offered. But it was so cheesy.

The young single secretary falls for the rich boss, only the boss has been away for a long time so no one really knows what he looks like. The boss goes undercover as a mechanic and that is how she falls for him.

He reveals to her his true identity and they go for a ride in his rolls Royce, buy a 2 caret diamond ring, buy a big house complete with servants and have a baby. Most books don't have all this happ

Long time favorite now an e-book

I have been waiting for the e-release of Hoodwinked one of my favorite Palmer Books for a long time. I am not going to detail the plot as it is hard to discuss the plot without spoilers and the surprises are half the fun of this story.

Maureen and Jake are the young virgin and experienced older man that Palmer readers love and there are some really nice twists that make this one special.
Two characters who cannot be more opposites! Jake is experienced in life, work and experiences (all kinds!) Maureen has no experience at all. Isn't it interesting how that is such a turn on for Jake?

I picked up this book because my brother's an airplane mechanic, and I thought I'd send it to him for a laugh. First, though, I read the story.

Helloooooo, alph-hole "hero."

As readers of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books know, "alph-hole" is short for alpha-male asshole. And is Jake Edwards ever an alph-hole. He's verbally rude and mean, he creeps her out and stalks her, and he manhandles her whenever he starts to feel lusty. While he changes a bit by the end of the book, he's still 90% turd.

I was expecting something more dramatic, like the heroine got hurt or something like that. But apparently, Diana Palmer didn't grant my wish for now.

It's been a while since I read Diana Palmer's book and I think this one's quite good. Though I don't really like the hero. Jake's kind of annoying and I don't think his apology is enough to his way. But then again Diana Palmer's heroine always forgive easily. Maureen's typical Palmer's girl so it doesn't really surprise me.

Now I'm running out of D

É impossível não se apaixonar pelas histórias de Diana Palmer.

Como, também é impossível não ficar louca da vida, com os homens de suas tramas.

Ainda bem, que nessa história a mocinha, Maureen, não é covarde.
