This book featuring middle sister Skye Titan is #2 in the "Lone Star Sisters" series and would have been just about perfect for me if not for the often aggravating actions of the heroine. This woman was your classic doormat when it came to her dealings with her bullying, callous, bastard of a father. God, how I hate this guy! I just can't understand how his daughters put up with him running their lives, or have anything to do with him for that matter. He's controlling, manipulative, and an ogre, ...more
20/1 - 3.5 stars. It's amazing how much faster you can read a book when you're not highlighting passages with editing errors in them every few pages. Just because it was such a relief to read a book free of mistakes I've rounded it up to four stars, probably more than the plot/characters warranted. Mitch was such a self-absorbed, angry bastard at the beginning that I took pleasure in his downfall. Skye was so far under her father's thumb (and not just at the beginning, she was still thinking of ...more

Ahhh, this book annoyed the hell out of me. I rolled my eyes at Skye and Izzy the entire time. Erin seemed like more of an adult than those two. In addition, Skye wasn't too interesting. It took her forever to grow a backbone. Jed once again was a complete ass. I'm amazed by how horrible he was and I wonder how the hell he turned out the way he did. Okay, actually I don't care. Besides all that I just didn't feel invested in the relationship between Skye and Mitch. I've read better reunion/first ...more

I didn't like this one as much as the first book in the series. I didn't enjoy the romance and characters as much...the heroine annoyed me a lot. But it was still a decent contemporary romance.

Series Note: this is the second book in Susan Mallery's Lone Star Sisters series. These books should be read in order because they are heavily intertwined.

Skye Titan has pretty much spent her life trying to please her father. She abandoned the man she loved and married a much older man her father p

mmmm slightly better than the previous one. The problem is that those Titan sisters are pretty lame. They are doormats :(

And Skye is a doormat. With her father, with her sister (bleah, her sister Izzy sleeps with the same man she's dating :( ) with her ex-boyfriend. I didn't like her so much.

But the story gets better and in the end she remembers to have a backbone (!).

Unfortunately I love kick-a@@ heroines, an article hard to find lately :(

"Lip Service" is the second installment of the Lone Star Sisters series by Susan Mallery. I like Ms. Mallery's books. Her characters are well written and interesting and the love stories are sexy and well thought out. Lip Service is about the second sister, Skye Titan and her "hero" is ex-Navy Seal Mitch Cassidy who owns the ranch next door to the Titan's ranch, Glory's Gate. He has come home to heal after an explosion while overseas in battle caused his leg to be amputated. He was Skye's first ...more

I have similar feelings to Lip Service as I did to Under Her Skin only sadly this time the sister relationship between Izzy and Skye was rather painful as they fell out over a man who was playing them off against each other due to their Father Jed and also due to Garth there other brother that they never knew about and who has been causing trouble for the Titan family.

Again I didn’t like Mitch but could understand the point of view he was coming across from. Skye and Mitch dated for a while and

Orjinal adı Lip Service Goodreads Puanı 5/3,91 Benim puanım 5/4,5

Serinin ikinci kitabını daha cok begendim.Ama kadın karakterin başlardaki kişiliksizliği yüzünden puanı da kırdım..

Konusu daha sert idi. Lexi ve Cruz'un hikayesi beyaz dizi tadında idi daha romantik idi. Irak savaşından dönmüş savaş gazisi Mitch Cassidy ve Titan kızlarının ortanca olanı Skye Titan'ın hikayesi idi..

Skye ile Mitch'in hikayesi daha gerçek sert bir hikaye idi.Babasının etkisinden kurtulamam

Skye Titan fell in love with the neighboring rancher's son when she was just 18 years old. Only her father put the kibosh on their budding romance and Skye was left with no choice but to leave her feelings for Mitch behind and marry the man chosen for her by her father. She had a daughter with him and they had a nice marriage, albeit a passionless one for several years until he died leaving Skye a young widow. Mitch did not take being dumped by Skye very well and left his Texas home to join the ...more

This is a well-written book, but I almost packed it in halfway through. Not only is it painfully dark, but the main characters are very hard to like: Mitch is bitter, self-pitying and mean, Skye is easily manipulated and ridiculously defensive. Both recognize their faults and grow, but I thought it took a little too long, with only a brief moment of happiness at the end. But props to Mallory for taking the story in a less obvious direction than expected, and for writing fallible human beings. De ...more

I know Lip Service is the second book in the series, and I did read the other three already, but I still loved this story. Yes, I knew what would happen in the long run, but Skye and Mitch were a lot of fun to read.

Skye is the daughter who has always done what her father has wanted her to do. She was dating Mitch years ago, they were going to get married, but Skye's father told her to marry someone else so she did. She broke up with M

I was really in the mood to read a romance novel, so I went to the book store and picked one up that sounded interesting. I had heard of Susan Mallery before as a romance novelist, but haven't read any of her work.

This was a pretty good book. I love stories about couples that knew each other/date previously, lost touch for whatever reason, and then get back together. I just find it so sweet and makes me think that if you're meant to be with someone, somehow it will happen. Yes, I under

This story I found was okay, there was a lot of angst, feelings of betrayal and lost time. An emotional ride. It was good to hear their story after having read some in the other books. Is it my favorite of the series? No, I don't think so, but it was pretty good. Why do I say that? It was pretty good when the author showed the "rage" that Mitch was going through. Rage at Skye for having no backbone, for dumping him to do her father's bidding, for being with another man instead of him. Rage at th ...more

This is the second book in this series. I enjoyed the chemistry between Skye and Mitch more than Lexi and Cruz.

Mitch left town shortly after Skye broke his heart, he is now back from war and battling some emotional damage as well as physical. I felt Mitch was a very angry character,it really hard to even like him at all until towards the end of the book.

Skye is a complex character, she has serious daddy issues. However all the daughters of Jed Titan all seem to want his approval so she fits th

İlk kitap kadar olmasada okunurluğu yüksek bir kitap. Beklentim zaten düşüktü başlarken iyide oldu hayalkırıklığını uğramadım diyebilirim.

Izzyı ve en çok Garreti merak ediyorum. Bu kadar kötü gösterirken Garreti nasıl döneceğiz onun tarafına bekleyip görecez umarım çok beklemeyiz.
Good story just too much anger in the book for me. I understand why, but I think it will be the least enjoyable in the series. Also it has a very abrupt ending. I know it is 2nd in a series, but come on just a little epilog would be nice.

This is 4.5 stars. The only reason it lost half a point is the style that Mallery has created for this series, which is to leave a major cliff-hanger at the end. I know that she's using the mystery with Garth as the tie that holds the books together (besides the Lone Star sister, of course), but it's annoying to get to the end of the story and still be totally unresolved. This would definitely not be a stand-alone book. That being said, I loved everything else about it. The romance portion betwe ...more

Pressed for time, I usually read only subjects of interest to me and my writing. Erotica has never been one of them. However, having experienced M.J. Rose's superior writing prior to discovering Lip Service, I was tempted to at least give it a go. Not only did I complete the first chapter, I couldn't put it down after.

In the past, a few other books with this subject had no storyline along with the sex and I passed. Rose's book not only has erotica, but wonderful fully-developed characters who l

The second in the Lone Star Sisters series. This is most definitely a middle book. I recommend reading the first one Under Her Skin Lone Star Sisters 1 before picking this one up. Although the romance is stand-alone, the back story of the Titan family is explained in the first book. Some of it is recapped in this book, but not enough to be stand-alone.

Mitch Cassidy was Skye Titan's first love. She broke his heart nine years ago when she caved to her father's wishes and marri
