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

"Seni seviyorum Mitch. Hiçbir şey bunu değiştiremez. Dersimi aldım. Neyin önemli olduğunu biliyorum. Hiçbir yere gitmiyorum. Sadece bunu bir düşün, lütfen. Bunca zaman sonra belki de yine birbirimize çıkan yolu bulmuşuzdur."

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.

Summary:
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

"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

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

4.5 stars. I loved this one. Gritty and very emotional. Both characters made mistakes but, but to me they didn't seem unrealistic. The ending was superb!

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

Evlenmeye karar verdiklerinin ertesinde Mitch'i babasının kendisini evlendirmek istediği adamla aldatarak Mitch'i terk ediyor, üstelik o adamdan hamile kalıyor.

Especially since the love of her life is back in Texas after eight long years. He won't like the answers to the questions he's asking. About why she left him at the altar.

3 1/2 stars - 4 stars
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

On the one hand, I thought Skye was such a weakling. Her father pushed her around so much. He drove Skye's mother to suicide, so she just steps in to fill her mother's place? Obviously not in a sexual way, but she was his hostess. She planned his parties. She dealt with the household stuff. And Jed deserved none of it. Oh my God, that man is an asshat! I can't believe he'd marry her off to one of his friends in the first place. She was eighteen! Her husband was much older than her. And then to d ...more

Definitely did not disappoint. I loved Mitch, Skye and Erin.

***Detailed Review***

LIP SERVICE was awesome! I absolutely loved Mitch and Skye together. Both had a lot of growing up and learning to do and the other was the perfect person to help them along.

Nine years ago, Skye followed her father’s orders and married an older man, Ray and broke off her engagement to Mitch Cassidy. As far as Mitch is concerned, she followed Daddy’s orders and broke his heart.

What he didn’t know and couldn’t fully

I enjoyed Lip Service by Susan Mallery. Skye Titan and Mitch Cassidy were going to be married until her father, Jed Titan,ordered her to marry someone else. She told Mitch she couldn't marry him; breaking his heart and hers. Mitch joined the Navy and became a SEAL. Skye married as her father ordered and had a daughter, Erin who is now almost 8. When her husband died, she took the money she inherited from her mother and started a foundation to feed hungry children in America.

I really like the sister's interaction with this series. I like how they band together (for the most part) to fight something their father doesn't think is a threat and their father himself. He is the biggest piece of crap I have seen in a long time. I find it interesting that he considers his daughters to be property and in order to get power over them he threatens them to the point where they are left no point but to walk away. Of course if these girls would realize that there is nothing they ...more
