I can’t resist…I was completely Charmed by this book. I started this book a couple of times, not getting past the first page the first time…just not in the mood for it. I finally decided that I was going to read this book, and did just that. I loved Felicity Charm and Michael Magee. I thought they were sweet together, and the whole story just worked for me.

I borrowed this book for my Kindle, and this is one book that I plan to buy so I can read it again.
I absolutely loved this book.

It was cheesy and lacked a strong plot, BUT I just can't dock it a star. I loved it too much! It has gone into my favorites vault.

Even though it lacks in the plot department and has a cheesfest going on, it all fits. IMO the story isn't about the plot so much as the two main characters relationship with each other. It's about how they meet and change each other for the better... while falling in love and having fabulously raunchy sexcapades!

Speaking of characters, I
I absolutely loved reading this book from beginning to end! It was only second book in the genre of romance but it probably won't be my last.

The story starts when due to circumstances beyond her control Felicity Charm, a very controlled very structured business woman let's her guard down for just a few seconds and allows her inner seductress to pluck at the pants strings of what was supposed to be a wild one night stand with her savior Magee after a near death experience. Just as things are g

Great Read

I love the storyline. So easy to get lost in. The characters are well developed,you can easily relate to.The heat and drama between Magee and Lissie is fantastic.You can't choose your family right but Lissie learns that they love her and she loves them as well through all the trials they put her through. With Magee by her side she realizes love does exist for her.
Light holiday reading, about as substantial as a popsicle, but on a hot day, just the right thing.
If you want a true romance novel, this probably is a decent choice. It's not my favorite genre, unless they put more into it (Rachel Gibson sometimes does), but it's easy and quick and takes absolutely no thinking. There's a cute, predictable plot and all the usual romance novel stuff. I'd have given it three stars but it lost one for overuse of the word "womb." :)

I loved this book and have read it again. Have not read it as part of the series but it is a great stand alone book. This book got me hooked with its steamy scenes and with how their relationship develops. This book is great and has made me want to read her other books.
This was a cute, light read. If I could have I would actually have given it 3 1/2 stars instead of 4 because there were a few minor things that bugged me, but all in all I really enjoyed it.
Heroine is a dirt–poor desert rat from Palm Springs. Hero is an extreme rock climbing star who's caught up in the antics of Heroines gypsy/grifter family. Hero was hot.
