Allison St. Claire has the face of an angel. That’s part of the problem. She also sells quaint tea sets in the gift shop at Galveston’s Pearl Island Inn. It doesn’t exactly scream sexy! Years of having men treat her like a little sister is enough to drive a healthy woman crazy. Especially when a gorgeous hunk checks in and fails to recognize that Allison’s more than willin ...more

3.5 stars... because (view spoiler)

And anyway besides i didn't really like the secondary characters for some reason, they were the only reason i ended up skipping a few pages of the book so. :/

RECOMMENDATION : If u like Kristen Ashley supernatural series or Sarah M. Glover Grave refrain i bet u sponge bob's pan

In a trilogy, the second and third books normally aren't that good. But after reading "Lead Me On", the second book in the Pearl Island trilogy, I was wrong. I fell in love with this book the same way I fell in love with the first. The storyline was even more gripping that the first, urging the reader to find out what will happen next to the characters. This book was also very mysterious since many questions were left hanging but by the end, you understand everything.

Wow, I'm lovin' the Pearl Island Trilogy! Yes, I can't wait for book three. This second book was super hot and I just fell in love with the tough heroine Julie Ortolon made out of sweet Allison St. Claire.

Story goes...Ally is just your normal sweet girl with a past that she wanted to forget so she could get on with life. After meeting hunky author Scott Lawrence, who wasn't only extremely sexy but also hot for Ally's form, he makes her re-acquaint all her past ghosts and confront it to be able t

This was an okay read. It started out with a bang and I was expecting to add another book to my favorites list, but it seemed to fizzle out in the middle. The characters as well seemed to fluctuate. I started out loving Allison and not caring about Scott and by the end the opposite was true. But at least they were fleshed out well enough for me to have such passionate opinions on them. Basically though, I'm just kind of "blah" about the whole book.

Don't get me wrong, there were some really good
I really really wish I used to write reviews so I could understand the two star rating I originally gave this book... there had to be some reason behind it - but for the life of me I cannot think what it was as re-reading the book now I really enjoyed this!

In my review of the first book in the series (2014 review that is) I said I thought Allison's book was the third book in the series - totally wrong there. I also said I didn't like her characterisation in the epilogue but it makes total sense

This was probably a 3.5 star book for me. Its the second in a series set on an island just off of Galveston and covers the romance between the another sister in the B&B owning family and author who has come for peace and quiet to break his writers block. Unfortunately, it turns out his family background is a problem for their relationship. Theres a little paranormal element with a family ghost in the old house where they created the B&B but nothing too obtrusive. Its a nice romance that ...more

John Lawrence, author with writer's block, arrived at Pearl Island Inn with hopes that some relaxation will do the trick. Allison St. Clair and her siblings own the B & B with its legendary lucky ghost. As Allison decides to have a fling with John, he finds out that his estranged father is suing them and a family feud of generations is still going strong. He decides to hide his relationship to stay close to Allison. Of course this won't last. The story has subplots with his runaway niece, th ...more

This contemporary romance has it all; humor, sexual tension, tenderness and mystery. When an author with writer's block comes to the Inn at Pearl Island, he is attracted to "good girl" Allison St. Claire but does not want anything serious. So, he attempts to ignore her while she is feeling ready for a "fling". I like the heroine better than the hero, Scott Lawrence, at first, until he is revealed to be more complex. The second book in a trilogy, I can hardly wait to read the third book in the se ...more

Well while I was reading this book I went to find the house that was the inspiration for the house in the book come to find out. There was a picture on that was the house that was the inspiration for the house in the book. Only problem was I saw other pictures and one of those pictures ruined the SURPRISE Ending. So Everyone STAY OFF Pintrest and dont go looking for the inspiration. I Loved that there were some True Facts in this book

Allison and Scott both are haunted by their past and have to open up to each other and themselves if they want a chance together. I loved getting to know Alison more and get caught up on what happed since the first book.
This book is mostly upbeat but there is some heavy emotions the characters have to deal with.
This can be a stand alone book but if you want to know Rory and Chance's story read book one.

Loved this story. Allison and Scott are just going to give I to temptations once.....yea right we all know how that works. I didn't expect to find out who exactly Scott's family was. That one threw me for a loop. And of course it was hard for Alli to handle. This book actually made me cry but I did enjoy it.

Interesting story in the second book of the Pearl Island Trilogy. Fun to be reading about a writer that comes to the B & B and meets the sister Allison as they discover the puzzles of the diaries that one of the ghosts wrote. Really enjoyed this one.

It had been quite awhile since I read the first book in this series but some of that story came back to me as I read. I wasn't too fond of the heroine of this story but it had its moments that got to me.
Regina Mastrogiacomo
The series is a great summer read. I love stories that includes the supernatural, love and little naughtiness. The relationships are interesting with twist and turn and sighs. This is my third time reading through the series and I'm enjoying the story just as much as the first time.
Cute sequel and a nice book for a summer read. A stereotypical romance novel with okay characters but not much to them. My favorite part of this series is the family history and tragic love story at the house and learning more about it in this book.

Average book for its genre, but well-written enough not to ruffle all of my feathers. EXCEPT, it is "sisterS-in-law" NOT "sister-in-lawS". It is a dumb mistake & in my world, unpardonable; the editor should be fired for not catching it.

Super good book. Great character development. Dual POV but mostly in Alli.
The only thing missing is some banter.

I still believe her Perfect trilogy is much better. Especially the second book.

I don't read romances much anymore, but I read the first one of this trilogy for free and just kept going. What a terrific series! I can't wait to read number 3. Julie, you rock!

Cute story, lightweight, easy read. And as a native Texan, I LOVE that someone set a story in Galveston.

Lead Me On review

Lead Me On is the second book in the Pearl Island series written by author Julie Ortolon. I like this series.

Usually the second book isn't as good as the first one but I liked this one as well. This book is about Rory's sister Allison and it has the same twist and suspense.

Another great read! I loved the hero, who is an uber-successful novelist with writer's block, and the heroine grew on me. :D

Great book! I haven't read the first in the trilogy but after this one I look forward to reading Adrian's story. I love that the hero was a writer and all of the references to producing a novel!

Most authors will tell you they've been writing and reading since childhood. Not me. I hated reading and never imagined I'd someday be a writer. Of course, the fact that I have dyslexia probably has a tiny bit to do with my aversion to the written word.

Nonetheless, I had a very active imagination and spent most of my school years staring out the window dreaming up stories. When I finally escaped t
