There were a lot of characters but they were easily recognized and relatable. I stepped in at the middle of the series but wasn’t at all lost. There was steam but it was perfectly respectable and romantic. There was cursing but it wasn’t overdone or out of place. There was romance, fear, anger, and tears and I couldn’t put the book down for anything! I must say — I’ll be searching out Ms. March’s books for some time to come! Thanks for such an awesome adventure.

Hott Review: I don’t remember the last time I just sat and LOVED a book. I devoured every single work of this book. Yes, it’s got Ms. Mallery’s wonderful sense of humor and three sweet romances but the portrayal of friendship is what really did it for me. I’ve never enjoyed books where emotion or friendship was the forefront of the plot but I can’t say that I’ve never enjoyed a book more than this one. Oh, you so need to RUN out and grab this one!!

When Chase finally returns from his military tour he’s astonished to find that he is the biological father of the kids – his brother forged his name at the pregnancy clinic – and wants to be the father he didn’t know he was. Merri just happens to have donated her egg to produce these wonderful twins and is the biological as well as guardian of the kids so the two decide that their best bet for giving the twins the family they deserve is to marry and legally adopt them. What they weren’t counting on is a judge and entire town watching to see what the reasoning is behind the hasty marriage and whether there are ulterior motives.
Hott Review: What I liked: This was a really cute book. I like the light low-meat Harlequins when I want a quick fun read & I was disappointed in that ;) Yup! This book was REALLY good. It was intense, realistic, and lots of fun. The steam was a bit intense – the kissing was tremendously steamy – but it wasn’t graphic or raunchy, just real. What I didn’t like: The synopsis — I read the synopsis and then started reading the book and for the longest time felt like I was reading the wrong book. I did eventually get there but it was confusing.
