Wow, what a little scorcher! Ty and Claire had great chemistry together and their love scenes singed the pages, no doubt about it. I wasn't completely sold on the insta-coupling in the beginning - I can't put my finger on it, but something didn't work for me - but I had no problems believing their falling in love later. It was fast and furious, but I was OK with it. I also had a bit of a problem with Claire's behavior near the end, as I'm not a fan of ultimatums and what she did came close to be ...more
Actually this book is more like a 2.75* . . . but I always believe in rounding up the stars on a review for an author just to be fair. I think KarlynP was pretty spot-on in her review of this one . . . it started out with some great potential storylines that just felt very "flat" and unimaginatively executed on in the long run. The story became more and more boring, and the sex scenes were cliche' and just fizzled for me (same words, same scenarios and nothing new or interesting - seemed to come ...more
This story was slightly tied in with Ms. Kenner's previous HB, Starstruck where friends Alyssa and Claire made a Christmas pact of going after what they want. Alyssa got her friend-turned-boyfriend Chris, now it was Claire's turn.
But unlike Alyssa and Chris' story, this one packed quite a punch.

There was no skirting around the sex issue with Claire and Ty. Once they set eyes on each other, all bets (and clothes) were off, making this one a smokin' scorcher of a book. I wish it was longer, becaus
Moonstruck is my first Julie Kenner read... I got the book in 2010 from Paperback Swap and had it sitting on my shelf until pulled it down to read to sort of put me in the mood for Valentine's Day... It did, oh boy did it ever!
I loved the beginning where Claire and Ty meet, a crowded room on New Year's Eve and their eyes meet and POW a connection is made... When the two actually bump up against each other and Claire goes up on tiptoe and lays one on him at Midnight you can see the fireworks go o

Seriously...this was the dumbest book I have read in a long time. The heroine, Claire, is an attorney who one day wants to be a judge. She meets a handsome, rich...did you hear RICH, successful, respected businessman, Ty, who happens to have a bit of a playboy reputation. Some paparazzi shoots a picture of them kissing on...wait for it...New Year's Eve...GASP!...posts it on an internet blog and suddenly her pristine reputation is in peril. Really??? Give me a break. It's not like he's not a rich ...more

Wow! Very steamy little audiobook - and the narrator did a fantastic job with it. The chemistry between Ty and Clair was electrifying, and sizzled throughout. I personally would have liked to learn more about these characters, as I believe I would really like them. Clair is strong and determined, and, I felt, a bit diminished by the fact that very little took place outside of the bedroom (figuratively, as they certainly did not contain themselves within bedroom walls!). I also would have liked t ...more

This was the first Blaze book in a long time that I didn't really care for, and I love the Blaze line. I think for me Claire and Ty's story felt too blazing for me. Their relationship seemed more based on mutual desires rather than any other interests that the two might share.

Sure Claire & Ty hooked up on New Year's Eve as a result of Claire seeing her ex with a hot new girlfriend but the relationship that follows just seems hurried. I wanted to know a lot more about both characters who were

Definitely naughtier than the rest of her books. It was seriously hot and very detailed. Good storyline and her characters are interesting and for the most part realistic. The dialogue is fun as always in a Julie Kenner book. The only thing in the negative I could say and I apply this to all her Harlequin books, you really feel that Harlequin has had her stick to a certain formula. It really says a lot for Julie's writing that it is not as obvious as in many Harlequin books.
I enjoyed the second installment of this series. It's nice to have a hero who can admit his feelings instead of runnig from them and being mean to the heroine. Also, liked the fact the heroine didn't have to choose between love and career.
Stand-alone Story.

This is a quick, fun read about an up-and-coming lawyer and a club owner. If you're looking for a short, steamy story, this is the book for you.

Fluff romance without most of Kenner’s usual flair. Still a solid story with decent characters, it’s not something that’s going to bear reareading.

A fun romp - despite the premise, it somehow managed to avoid a cliched ending and present a believable dynamic between the characters.
