The first book I've read by this author, and I'm bummed to report I didn't really enjoy it, as I'm always on the lookout for new non-Harlequin romances to read as palate cleansers in between heavier books, and Dorothy Garlock has apparently failed me. It IS much more well-written than most romance novels, and the "twist" at the end was interesting.

I couldn't really enjoy a book when I spent so much time disliking the heroine, however. Cammie did so many dumb things (and then downright too-stupi...more
This was maybe 2.5 stars. It was hard for me to get through, and I normally love Jennifer Blake. Although I wouldn't add her to my list of faves, she holds a special place in my heart b/c she's one of the first romance authors I ever read, starting way back in high school.

So I was pretty disappointed in this one. There were a lot of rich descriptions...that droned on and on and on. The main male character (whose name I had forgotten until I saw it in the description just before writing this - s...more

Wonderful book

The author really wrote a wonderful book. I enjoyed from the very first chapter until the very end. The characters and storyline were well thought out.
Great story, page turner. It kept me guessing throughout the story
Built on romance, devotion, love, caring, and a definite mystery and deceit
Oh their is the time I spent on this one that I'll never get back. It just took so long to me to finish it. I just could not get into this one.

I haven't read any of Jennifer's books before, and don't read much romance in general. So I wasn't expecting much from this free download. But I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the story, and the suspenseful plot twists. Really held my attention the whole way through.
i mean, come on! how wrong can you go with:

a damaged male
a female going through divorce
an ex who wants her back
history between said male and female (although its a little different to what you are first led to believe)
a shocking family scandal
and a nutter hell bent on getting what they want!

add a paper mill, a vengeful brother, and lots and lots of hot sex, and you got a winner! this books grabs you from the very first page and runs away with you right to the end! beautifully written story, a s...more
Nice Louisiana romance! This was right near my neighborhood.
Another good book by Blake.
I've read several books by Jennifer Blake and have loved them all... except this one. I was disappointed in it - it almost felt like Ms. Blake was running out of ideas for books or something. It was "just there". There was certainly a bit of romance and plenty tough guy/southern gentleman and damsel in distress to go around, but the story just didn't really "hold me" like her others books did. Yeah, I wanted to know how it ended, so I kept reading, but overall it was actually pretty predictable.
Interesting love story....but it dragged. There were some parts that lacked structure and I had to go back to reread it because the subject would change so quickly. However I loved Reid although he was broken he knew what he wanted and went for it. Cammie was a little to trusting when it came to people. You would think once she realized that people she thought were her friends and love ones were gossiping about her behind her back and telling her what road she take. Would no longer be trustworth...more
Jennifer Blake's writing reminds me a lot of Nora Roberts style of writing...little mystery...little romance. All in all I enjoyed the book and was surprised in the end to find out who the villain was (never expected this person). Passing onto a friend to read who enjoys Nora Roberts. Think she will like this author as well.
Reid and Cammie have known each other since childhood. But he went away and she married someone else. Now he is back for his father's funeral. Is the pull for each other still there. Cammie is in the midst of a divorce but her ex wants her back and 'needs' to do it before the divorce is final. Why???
Thankfully, it was free on Amazon. This book was full of flowery prose, with little else. This one was not only dull but frustrated me so much, I could barely get through it. The characters (especially Cammie) were irritating to a level that I cannot even begin to describe.
I just finished this & it was well written. I loved the mix of romance & suspense. The main characters interacted with each other wonderfully. I would recent this book to anyone who loves romance books .

I loved it every step of the way! So full of suspence and had me on the edge of me seat the whole time.

This story was not for me. I didn't like the writing style. I just could not get into the story.
A good read! Very well written. A little confusing at times. Other then that loved the story.

a really REALLY good read. a fantastically captivating story.
