Deserving of Luke

Stepping into her Oregon hometown, Paige Matthews remembers why she left. Being the subject of the local rumor mill should be old hat to her. Maybe the reason she's a little touchier this time around is her son. One look at him and there's no doubt Logan Powell is his father. With the past between her and Logan, the gossips have a field day with that.

The h initially started strong in this book of rejection and betrayal and rose to have her son and live a successful life as a set designer in L.A. The h was the daughter of the town's bad mother who bore the h while her husband was overseas. The judgemental town painted the child with the same brush as her mother and even her family treated her badly. Finally, she gave up trying to be good and acted out, looking for love anywhere she thought she could find it. The H was the town's golden boy. S ...more
It was an OK read if not a tad confusing to me. The resolution - what little there was - of the conflict within this book seemed rushed and not the least satisfying. No confrontations with those that caused the majority of the conflict and non appearing family members and friends made it rather insular around the couple, their son and her sister. Other characters where mentioned and supposedly present inside the same small town but apart from a quick mention or two (sisters parents) and a call f ...more

Hero was hard headed and tried to push his failings on the heroine but I wished he had got a clue sooner.

But he is like so many men that this behavior was pretty right on regarding women's sexual histories. I wish that guys would read this book so they can learn something instead the misinformation from society. I think Moms would do a service to their sons to have them read this book. Boys and men get off too easy after assisting in getting girls and women pregnant.

Heroine was extremely stron

Nine years ago Paige and Logan had been hot and heavy. She was a girl w/ a very colorful past and a history w/ other men….until she hooked up w/ Logan. Logan had everything pretty much handed to him, but when he heard that the girl he loved had been getting w/ the members of the football team, and she claims she is pregnant – well he wasn’t buying that the baby could possibly be his. Logan was devastated and kicked 17 year old Paige to the curb and refused to trust anything she said in her defen ...more

Shelves: paper
Although not as bad as I thought it would be, there was a lot of repetition of thoughts. I also noticed some missing words. There were some good scenes but some annoying scenes as well. The ending was rushed. Although I'm glad he eventually came to the realization by himself instead of seeking proof, I was never really endeared to the "hero," if one could even call him that.

Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her ...more
