Daisy's Back in Town (Lovett, Texas #1)
Daisy Lee Monroe thought she'd brushed the dust of Lovett, Texas, off her high-heeled shoes years ago, but she's come back home only to find that little has changed. Her sister is still crazy, and her mom still has pink plastic flamingos in her front yard. And Jackson Lamott Parrish, the bad boy she'd left behind, is still so sexy it hurts. She'd like nothing better than t...more

It was a book hard to put aside, but also hard to read while having a big lump in the throat.
The main plot is about Daisy, Jack and Steven who were very good friends growing up. And even though both boys (and...more
Favorite lines - “Mom," Nathan called to her. Daisy pulled her gaze from the tent and the fleeting glimpse of Jack's bare back, the smooth planes and indent of his spine, the sliver of the white elastic just above the blue waistband of his jeans..."Hmm?" "What's a faaar ant?" he asked just above a whisper. "Fire." She chuckled and shook her head. "Fire ant. They have a nasty bite that burns." Nathan smiled. "Well, why didn't he just say fire?" "He thinks he did.”
I remember having an argument with a friend about Daisy's actions several years ago. She couldn't accept that Daisy had kept her son a secret for so...more
Jackson Lamott Parrish thought he'd seen the back of Daisy when she ran off with his best friend years ago. He vowed then he'd never let another woman get close to him again, and he's been breaking hearts ever since.
He loves her not...
But Daisy has a secret, one she can confess only to Jackson. So why is he the one person staying well out of her way?
He loves her?
An absolute roller-coaster of a romance, this is an addictive novel about what happens when you fall in love... with the b...more
This wasn't the part I disliked about the book, as I don't think a good book in the "Romance" category requires funny moments to be good. It's just nice when they do have some humor.
Some spoilers ahead.
I disliked Daisy's personality, and I disliked how easily Jack turned...more
Rachel Gibson, as previous reviews may also have indicated, follows a clichéd storyline with slight variations that features two independent adults who get into a relationship purely because of sex, but ‘accidentally’ fall in love. However, they continue to live in denial till a major conflict drives them apart only to bring them together forever once the problem is solved. Her books are funny but predictable. Nevertheless, they are highly addictive for some romance junk...more

I did find it a little hard to think of Daisy as a teenager who was newly married, scared and pregnant to the women we meet at the beginning who had just lost her husband and 15 year old son! I know at 18 if I was the one pregnant I would of told Jackson the truth instead o...more
Have I said before .. Rachel Gibson can write a tale? I know, so much it makes you nauseous, but it is true.
This is my first of her Lovett Texas series and I loved it. I can relate to Texas more than I can the northwest; Washington State is another of her venues. This book had the classic car loving Jack. He was a gear head from birth. He and Steven had a third best friend, Daisy. These three were like “three peas in a pod” throughout their childhood. Both Jack and Steven were in love wi...more
Daisy Monroe has come back to her home town after fifteen years to tell the man she once loved that she had his baby all those years ago, and married his best friend to give the baby and name and life that he may have not been able to give...more
jack and daisy had a secret love affair when they were in high school. jack's parents died, he wanted daisy to leave him alone for a little bit and daisy married their best friend steven. what daisy and steven never told jack is that daisy was pregnant when she married steven. steven died and daisy is back in town to give jack a letter from steven and to tell him that he is a father. jack is really bitter and doesn't want anything to do with daisy or with steven. when daisy finally gets...more
Also, the plot was shown too early so everything was calculable from page 20. I couldn't help thinking how Isabel Wolff would have written this story: she would have kept things in dark and share just a minuscule part of info from time to time, making the story exciting. (I read half of the book in one week, and...more
And I ran off with your best friend…the week your parents died. I love him but not the way I love you. But since you were sad, I didn’t want to make you even sadder so I married him instead. Then we lived happily in Seattle for 15 years and raised your son to call him daddy. Now the other guy is dead and well, you’re still really hot, so here I am! Back in town! And for 200 pages I’m not going to tell you about your son e...more
I loved Daisy. She's full of innocence and mischief all at once. She's been through a lot in the fifteen years since she's left town, and now she's returned on a mission, she plans to fill Jackson Parrish in on just what she's been up to. Things don't go qu...more
The whole thing that happened 15 years ago, bothered me so much. I couldn't look past it. What his friend did was sooooooo wrong. And to say in his letter, that he doesn't regret it? Really. Uh.. to keep a child away from a parent. I get that she was scared.. but I...more
Daisy has come back to town because Steven, her husband, who was Jack's best friend when they were younger, had died. Before his death, he and Daisy decided that it would be best to finally tell Jack the reasons they betrayed him all those years ago....more
It is funny and entretaining, and yes, sexy.
We loved all about it, from the cute flashbacks to Daisy's childhood, spending the days with her two best friends,
to listening Daisy talk about her life in Seattle (see I still remember),
and her son! he was really funny, all goth guy in Texas,
and the surprising twist about her connection to Jackson and the heart warming story
of why she left...
this book is made of awesomeness, GO READ IT...more
Daisy had 15 long years to give the news to Jack. but no. Well she says it herself she's acoward and also a tease.
[I absolutely hated when she says Jack that can have sex without protection because she just had her periods. That is so wrong. There is less chaces yes but no time is ever really safe; that is Urban legend I was really angry with that but I guess I shouldn't or just stop read chit lit because you can read that kind of stuff in so many....more
i liked the way the book started in jack's POV. it was refreshing and different. i always enjoy a good love triangle- especially when the heroine truly loves both men. i thought the way gibson told the story, especially with flashbacks to the past, was well done. it is one of those books that feels so real, it made me laugh and cry a lot.
i was disappointed there was no epilogue, but i expect i'll...more
It occurs to me it might look odd - some of my ratings - when I give a little piece of fluff 4 stars and something like The English Patient 1 star. I'm judging them against books of their type rather than against one another. Of course the English Pat...more
The love story was heart-wrenching (if a little overdone at the end) and the sexytimes scenes were awesome.
It got kind of heavy at times, what with her husband having died of cancer, but it wasn't really a downer of a book.
Really what I lived best about the book was the characters, I think the plot was oka...more

Daisy pulled her gaze from the tent and the fleeting glimpse of Jack's bare back, the smooth planes and indent of his spine, the sliver of the white elastic just above the blue waistband of his jeans..."Hmm?"
"What's a faaar ant?" he asked just above a whisper.
"Fire." She chuckled and shook her head. "Fire ant. They have a nasty bite that burns."
Nathan smiled. "Well, why didn't he just say fire?"
"He thinks he did.”
Jack swallowed. "That's good." He smiled at his son, vastly relieved that there would be no hard questions about his own sex life.
"What I want to know is..." Nathan stole a quick look back at the tent. "Where is the clitoris exactly?"
Jack's smile fell and he opened his mouth. No words came out so he closed it.
Nathan had no problem forming his words, though. "And what the heck is a G-spot?”
