This was a very good read for me, I really enjoyed this second book of the Divorced and Desperate series. Once again Christie Craig wrote a very good book, with humor, great characters, sexual tension and heated love scenes. I must say that it was not quite as good as the first book that is why the 4.5 rating. The humor was there, just not as funny, the bad guy was t...more

This book started out good, really good. A sweet romance between an author named Sue and a sexy hot cop named Jason. When the author’s life becomes threatened the romance between the two heats up and it’s a great read. Until about ½ way through, and the tug of war romance between Sue and Jason becomes so overdone I just wanted to pull Jason from the book and take the hottie for myself and slap Sue! The resolution of the mystery was such a sad attempt I honestly m...more

That's me with this book. Both the heroine and hero have troubled childhoods, and apparently that rules them. Trust and love issues, saying what they really mean, expressing emotion... c'mon people! It should have been a deal breaker for me, really.
Ah but it didn't matter. Christie Craig, I'm discovering, weaves tales that make me bot...more

The good: Humorous, Suspenseful, tension, writing, characters (well developed).
The bad: Sluggish, (too) angsty, grammar, predictable, characters (unlikable).
Personally, I think this book would have benefited from a side romance (missed opportunity with h's mother and fruit-selling Elvis…). There was just way too much repetition with the H/h and their thought processes and issues. A nice reprieve to a sub-romance would have been ideal. Or just knock out 100-150 pages of the BS.
4 star contemporary romance
Christie Craig is a new author for me. With a total of 5 novels out so far, 3 of them belonging to the Divorced & Desperate series, this author writes with the sort of dry humor that only few can pull off and entertain the reader as much as this book has kept me entertained.
This book can be read as a standalone although it is the second book in the Divorced & Desperate series, though after reading this, my interest has been piqued enough to consider reading t...more
My review cross-posted from Joyfully Reviewed: http://www.joyfullyreviewed.com/revie...
For Sue Finley, plotting to kill someone is all in a day’s work. The talented mystery author knows all about threats, stalking, murder, and mayhem. What she can’t figure out is men, or more specifically one man – Jason Dodd. Four months ago, Jason gave Sue the best kiss of her life and then never called her. But when someone starts sending Sue threats straight out of her own novels, the man who...more
The author did have good pacing, but the bad outweighs the good here so significantly that I can't even give this two stars.
Detective Jason Dodd arrives with his detective partner, Chase, just after Sue and her mother get a dead rat death threat.
There are more death threats, family and past relationship issues to sort through.
Other than that, I liked the main characters and the plot was decent.
