Reilly’s Return is the third novel in the Rainbow Chasers series by American author, Tami Hoag. Jayne Jordan, widow of Joseph MacGregor, is hiding out in the California coastal town of Anastasia with three llamas and a pregnant teen. Zany Jayne is a film writer and director, but is wasting her talent as a scathing film critic. Aussie actor, Pat Reilly was Mac’s best friend, but when he met Jayne, neither could deny a connection. At Mac’s funeral, he vowed to return to her. And now he has. But Ja ...more
Very dated story of an '80s flaky new-age heroine and an actor with over-the-top rabid fans. I never bought into the "chemistry" between the couple, and thought the heroine's character was just silly.
Sorry. Not going to finish listening to this one. The characters are, well, caricatures. And I'm bored already, having made it through an hour. There are just too many good books out there.
Suspending disbelief has it's limits. This guy was just too hot to be in love with such a kook...and a whiny one at that!
this book was impossible to get into. it took everything i had just to finish it.

Ah the guilty pleasure of a slap and tickle book...
Reilly comes back from his Hollywood start status, being the equivalent of People's Sexist Man Alive, to a CA town his old flame, who happens to be a movie critic, is putting on a play in a small playhouse. He said he is there to get back to his stage roots, she thinks he is tanking in his career making bad movies just for the money. He is the ex-best friend of her ex-husband, and the REASON she has an ex-husband,
The sexual tension can be cut wi
I've been enjoying most of Tami Hoag's early romance books. This one was not one of my favorites at all. Jayne is a whiny, terrified, crazy woman with no real grip on life. All she wants to do is find spiritual harmony and peace and quiet with no conflict or excitement. And she falls in love with a man she doesn't respect or trust. Reilly is a chauvinist, over-sexed and inconsiderate guy who steamrolls right over Jayne's comfortable, peaceful little life. He pushes her into a relationship, out o ...more
An early Hoag. Yoga, meditation-loving widowed writer leaves Hollywood to open community theater in small town.
Then hot-shot actor comes to town: he was hubby's best friend and when he and wifey met it was instant attraction, but they never acted on it. After hubby''s death, actor said he'd be back in year.\
There's a lot of guilt, angst (and not just about their feelings for each other), but every time the MC mentioned OM, yoga or meditation, it just stopped me in my tracks and totally turned me
This was a very hard book to complete, but I finally did. The characters were bland and the plot was very predictable. I'm sad to say, of these first TH books, you can just change the characters' names & city names & it's basically the same story.
"Reilly's return" by Tami Hoag is a very early book, part of the loveswept series which I didn't realize had so much sex in it. I read it only because it is part of a series and I am compulsive that way. Anastasia, CA has become a home for 3 women who have reconnected after
life after college. Jane is a widow who had been attracted to a freind of her husband's before he died and Reilly said he would come for her in a year,and he does. Love ensues!
Not a big fan of this.

Jayne writes movie reviews and seems to be really bitchy about it.

Reilly wants to romance Jayne and is willing to jump thru hoops to do it.

Takes place in a small town in CA. I kept wanting to smack some sense into Jayne.

There's sub-plot with a pregnant teenager that added nothing.
I always find it interesting to read author's earlier books, it really makes me appreciate how far they've come. I liked the idea of Reilly's Return but I didn't like the book much. I've read other books by Tami Hoag that she's written more recently and enjoyed them far more than this one.
Jayne keeps claiming that she is doing a public service with her "brutally honest" movie reviews. I think she has honesty confused with hyperbole.
This was nice simple love story. Not necessary very special but enjoyable none the less. If you like love stories you will enjoy this book.
I liked Reilly a lot, but Jayne drove me a little crazy with all her quirks with her bracelet. It was a pretty standard older romance
Another great early romantic comedy from Hoag. I love this series! Laugh out loud funny with loveable characters!
Dated romance and very little storyline. Much prefer Hoag's later novels.
It was something to read...nothing special but not bad.
Just a glorified mills and boon. Meh
