Beanbag Love
This is my least favorite of the Trap series by Tracy Anne Warren. I didn't love the first one, The Husband Trap, and this one has even more problems.

First of all, the heroine is the twin sister of the heroine in The Husband Trap. She's a selfish, immature snob. She's been sent off to Ireland to stay with some cousins because of the scandal she caused with her antics in THT. There she meets Darragh O'Brien, an architect who also happens to be the Earl of Mulholland. Only she assumes he's simply

After I read the first book in this series, the Husband Trap, I skipped this book because I quite simply wasn't interested in the story of the selfish twin sister who instigated the deception in the first book. (Not that the other sister was guiltless, but this one was worse.) I read the third book, which is the best in the series, and then moved onto other things. Months and months later, I remembered that I hadn't finished the series, and in the midst of a dry spell, I gave this one a try. I'm ...more

I loved the first book in this series, the Husband Trap. And I was intrigued that the second book would give me the opportunity to see 'the other side' of Jeanette, who was the selfish, snobbish, self-involved catalyst for all the action in the first book. Well, as it happens, Jeanette’s other side is pretty much the same as the first side.

There were times when I really wondered what our hero, Darragh, saw in this woman. Which is ironic, because Darragh’s primary concern is that Jeanette falls i

Gül ve Diken - Tracy Anne Warren


Tracy Anne Warren'e büyülü kalemine tekrar hayran oldum.
Serinin ilk macerasinda nefret ettigim Jeannette'nin dilinden anlayan birinin cikip ona ders vermesi cok manidar geldi bana.

Kitabin basinda Darragh O'Brien ile karsılastikları sahnede kötü ikizimizin düstügü çamurlu durum tam da layigıni buldu dedirtecek seydi bence..
Her ne kadar bu karsilasma Jeannette icin cok kötü sonuclara sebepde olsa ikili arasindaki çekimin çatirdilarını hissedebiliyorsunuz.

This is a riveting, wonderful book. I could not stop reading until I was done. The background, psychological aspects, schemas and values of the characters are so well-developed. I love a story with redemptive themes and that is exactly what this book is about. In this case, a spoiled yet beautiful young woman finds her inner beauty with the help of a patient passionate man who is fully invested in seeing her develop into more than what she is; a superficial & overindulged lady of society.

I was hoping for good things from this book as I love a regency romance. Sadly the main feeling I had during this book was annoyance as I found the romance to be unbelievable. Darragh comes across as a lovely chap and I have no problems with Jeannette falling for him but she is completely spoiled and unlikeable, I have no idea what he would see in her beyond her beauty. The plot is that due to a scandal involving her exchanging places with her twin sister (book one in the series, The Husband Tra ...more

Gönlümden geçen 2,5 !
Çok basit bir kitaptı. Ya yazarın ilk kitabını okumamış olsaydım , kesinlikle kaleminden şüphe ederdim. Daha farklı ve etkileyici bir konu bekliyordum açıkçası. -_- Boşa zaman kaybı oldu. Bi' kere aşkı hissettirmesi 0 (sıfır) , kıza Darragh'ın ders verdim dediği yerler bsaçmalık. En önemlisi de ''konu şuydu'' diyeceğim tek bir unsur göremedim...
Contessina
Bu kız bu kadar ilgiyi hak etmiyordu . Cefasını çekmeden sefasını sürmek böyle bir şey olsa gerek herhalde . Yazık oldu oğlana , evlendi bununla . Adrian gibisi lazımdı ona ki kulağını çeke çeke hizaya getirsin . Yok , yanlış anlaşılmasın , hikaye iyiydi .

Oh my God! This one ia better than the 1st.
Some people may disagree, Well, i must say even this one is longer i never bored not even one second.

Some people may dislike Jeanette, but to be honest, her character is intriguing, not average Heroine. She maybe snob, arrogant, overconfident, But she's not whining. Every obstacles and challenges she face it bravely. she's just insecure. and Darragh helps alot. I love him very much.

The one thing that bugging me *spoiler* is when Markham come to Darragh

I can't really believe the transfromation suffered by Jeanette. She really was a different person at the end of the book.
I loved Darragh and he did what he was supposed to do in order to change Jeanette

I don't care for the twin. The hero will be so much better off with somebody else.

that was a huge disappointment after the first instalment.
Éowyn
Oh dear. Not the greatest example of the genre I have ever read it has to be said. The Wife Trap is the middle book of a trilogy by this author; the first books seems to have dealt with the courtship of the twin sister of the 'heroine' of this novel, seemingly involving deception and machinations. You could read this book without having read the first one, but of course you don't know exactly what has gone on beforehand and why exactly Jeanette has been banished to stay with cousins in Ireland.

Serinin ikinci kitabı da bitmiş bulunuyor. Bu kitaptaki asıl karakterimiz, bir önceki kitabın kötü ikizi Jeannette. Jeannette bu kitabın başında ailesi tarafından İrlanda'ya sürülmüş bir vaziyette. İrlanda'yı çok sıkıcı buluyor ama yolculuk sırasında tanıştığı Darragh O'Brien aslında günlerini ilginçleştiren tek karakter. Kendisi aslında bir kont olsa da bir türlü kıza bunu söyleyemiyor, kız da onu sıradan bir mimar sanıyor ve bu böyle bir süre g

Jeannette yaşadığın her şeyi hak ettin, kocan hariç!!! Kitap bitti ama seni hala sevebilmiş değilim.. Sonunda da Darragh değil o gidi af dilemeliydi önce..
Neyse beni sinir çok sinirlendirdi, ama ilki kadar olmasa da kitabı sevdim...
Serinin son kitabı da umarım güzel olur Kit ve Eliza'nın hikayesi.. Hep sevmişimdir böyle kimsenin ilgilenmediği geri planda bulunan kadınların, sosyetenin gözdesi adamlarla olan hikayesini :D

Jeanette is a spoiled and petulant bitch. Why would I want her to get a HEA?!
Amelia
I liked it, but it just didn't live up to the first book in the trilogy.
Though the sex scenes were far hotter in this addition.

I just did not like the female lead for over half the book. She was a whiney, spoiled, snobby, immature snot. BUT she eventually grows up and becomes likable!

The plot was hilarious.

I loved Darragh! Now I want to find a time machine and go back to the 14oo's so I can find myself a sexy beast of an Irish man!

Serinin ilk kitabında bizi delirten Jeannette'ın hikayesiydi bu kitaptaki. Öncelikle çevirisinin bazı devrik cümleler dışında iyi oldugunu belirteyim. Yazarın kurgu yetenegi de ilk kitaptaki kadar guzeldi ve uslup akıcıydı. Konusuna gelirsek eger, vukuatları yuzunden ailesi tarafından İrlanda'daki akrabalarının yanına gönderilen Jeannette, yolda aracının camura saplanması sonucu, yoldan gecen bir mimarın yardımıyla yoluna devam edebiliyor. Herkesi parmagında oynatacak kadar zeki olan kızımız, mi ...more

This one was fun to read,and Warren does a good job of making an unlikable secondary heroine in book #1, The Husband Trap, someone a reader can totally come to love in the second book. Superior character growth!
Brooke Springer
Not nearly as good as the other two in the series. It was lacking something...just can't figure out what. Thank goodness she improved on her mistress trilogy.
Michelle Connolly
I've read a lot of reviews on the Trap Trilogy of people saying they're not interested in reading this book because they disliked the heroine, Jeanette, so much from the first one (The Husband Trap). And it's true... she is a spoiled, egotistic snob... BUT you won't regret giving this second one a try. I hated Jeanette from the first book aswell, but I really came to like her in this one.
A lot of reviews also say she was the same spoiled brat by the end of the book and never changed, but that i

Loved the first one in this series, such an amazing read but the second as I expected, wasn't much of a fan of. The story was interesting and fun and the hero is to die for but the heroine was what/who I had problems with. MAJOR problems with. This honestly would have been 4-5 read if it weren't for Jeannette. She kept ruining it for me.

And I tried, lord help me I tried really hard to like or even sympathize with Jeanette but goodness she really tested my patience several times to th

The Wife Trap
Tracy Anne Warren

The main female lead, Jeanette, starts out as the spoiled horrid nasty bit that she has always been in the first novels. Exiled to Ireland due to the many scandals she was involved in back in London. The switching of her and her twin when she decided at the very last moment that she didnt want to marry the man who had been courting her, the problem being they didnt tell anyone uncluding the man she was to marry!As well as another scandal involving yet another man.

This book was about Jeannette Rose Brantford and her spoiled ways. After her parent found out that she and her sister Violet exchanged places and Violet married the Duke instead of Jeannette. They shipped Jeannette off to her cousins in Ireland which is where she met Darragh O'Brien. Her carriage got stuck and helped them get moving again. But she soon saw him working as on the house construction at her cousin's estate and from them a world wind romance started.

In this book Jeannette was duped i

I rather liked it, even though it often reminded me of romances from the 80s, with the heroine slapping the hero a few times and being prevented from it a few other times, and with several other aspects in the plot. The first 90 pages or so left me wondering when the author would manage to make the heroine change and quit being the obnoxious self-indulgent self-centered brat that she had been her whole life. Her transformation, though a bit quick, was otherwise rather convincing. Some of her pra ...more

I wasn't even sure I wanted to read this book after reading the first book in the series. I really disliked the Jeanette in the first book and couldn't see how I would like her as a heroine. However, while I didn't like her at the beginning I was amused with how Darragh dealt with her when she acted like a spoiled brat and eventually I found myself rooting for her. By the end, her change from spoiled brat to one of a more compassionate nature felt good and I enjoyed the ending very much.

Tracy Anne Warren'in yazdığı ''Gül ve Diken'' arkadaşım Ebru ile okundu, bitti. :-) Kitap kendini biraz sevdirdi, biraz da hayal kırıklığına uğrattı. Serinin ilk kitabı olan Kollarımdaki Yabancı'dan sonra büyük bir heyecan ve beklentiyle başlamıştım buna. Konusu yine çok güzeldi. Yazar zaten aynı yazar, başarılı... Fakat bu sefer Tracy Anne kurguyu tam oturtamamış gibi geldi. İkili sürekli bir inatlaşma, ağız dalaşı içersinde. Kimi yerlerde eğlendirse de bi vakitten sonra sıkılmaya başlıyorsun. ...more

“Looks delicious," he lied. "A mite crispy along the edges - but then, I like it that way."

Incredulous eyes met his own. "You like your potatoes burned?"

Ah, so he'd been right about that. If he could still recognize what it was she'd cooked, then surely he could eat it.”
