Putting aside the premise of cheating, this was a well-written book. I read reviews saying this was a sad story, but it's not. It has a surprising HEA ending.
I will never understand why people are desperate to have children, usually once it appears

I'm a huge Courtney Milan fan and this is, I believe, her first foray into contemporary novels. Just as with her historical romances, Trade Me was full of smart women and entertaining humor, plus a couple of surprises along the way. I look forward to ...more

If you have read the Calloway Sisters spin-off series, this book does not add a whole lot of new content. If I had to choose between this book and the spin-off series, go with the spin-off. Lily and Lo get a bit dull. I have the next book in the seri ...more

While I love the Beauty Series, this epilogue was anticlimactic. The same issues of class difference are rehashed.

Even though I'm a huge fan of Ryke, I'm not a fan of Daisy. I was willing to give her another chance since she has aged 2 years since we first meet her in Ricochet. It was hard for me to get a sense of Daisy's personality outside of her psychological ...more

I've always been fascinated with Connor. It's so refreshing to see a guy who enjoys the challenge of a strong, intelligent woman and knows exactly what she needs but isn't pushy about it until the time is right. That kind of confidence and determinat ...more

I was convinced until the very end of this book that I would rate it 4 stars. I really liked it. But it really is amazing. The psychology addresses not only sex and alcohol addictions, but codependency as well. This story provides more than just read ...more

Linda Howard
“Is it time for your period, or something?"

With unerring instinct, he'd found a great big red button, and pushed it. Wyatt fights to win, which means he fights dirty. I understand the concept because that's how I fight, too, but understanding it didn't stop me from reacting. I could practically feel my blood bubbling with steam. "What?"

He turned around, all controlled aggression, and damned if he didn't push the button again. "What is it about having a period that makes women so bitchy?"

... It was an effort, but I said as sweetly as possible, "It isn't that we're bitchier, it's that having a period makes us feel all tired and achy, so we have less tolerance for all the bullshit we normally SUFFER IN SILENCE." By the time the sentence ended the sweetness was long gone, my jaw was clenched, and I think my eyes were bugging out.

Wyatt took a step back, belatedly looking alarmed.”
Linda Howard, Drop Dead Gorgeous

Gary Chapman
“Encouragement requires empathy and seeing the world from your spouse's perspective. We must first learn what is important to our spouse. Only then can we give encouragement. With verbal encouragement, we are trying to communicate, "I know. I care. I am with you. How can I help?" We are trying to show that we believe in him and in his abilities. We are giving credit and praise.”
Gary Chapman, The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate

“I don't think Harry cares about being forgiven," Poppy said glumly.
"Of course he does. Men love to be forgiven. It makes us feel better about our inability to learn from our mistakes.”
Lisa Kleypas, Tempt Me at Twilight

“Children who experience anxious or ambivalent attachments to their primary caregivers may "fall in love" too easily, seeking extreme closeness right off the bat and reacting intensely to any suggestion of abandonment.”
Adam Cash

J.D. Salinger
“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
