I liked this one. Didn’t love it, but liked it a great deal. My quibble with it was I thought the heroine was a bit too hard on the hero at times. I wanted her to cut the guy some slack.

This quick, contemporary romance was a pleasant surprise. The plot was unlike anything I've ever read as were the main characters. They were complex and interesting, with a realistic building of trust and love that came across well. I would recommend this book to any lover of romance.
Checked it out for plane reading, but I only started it on the way home. Solid writing and characterization yet again. I really like this author. She makes the emotions and characters feel so real.
The book was just ok. The heroine was too judgmental for me to like her.

Janice Kay Johnson is the author of sixty books for children and adults. Her first four published romance novels were coauthored with her mother, also a writer who has since published mysteries and children's books on her own. These were "sweet" romance novels, the author hastens to add; she isn't sure they'd have felt comfortable coauthoring passionate love scenes!
