The Case of the Confirmed Bachelor (Most Wanted #2)

Nick Reed, private investigator for the Lassiter Agency, wasn't the marrying kind. He craved excitement, change, and he never stayed in one place too long.

Unlike Tabitha Harvey. Tabby had lived in the house next door to Nick's childhood home for years. Stable and understated, she craved a home, children and a man who would love her. Too bad she'd already given her heart to

Same old same old DP!
We follow the H round and round in his convoluted thinking and reasoning on whether he feels something for the h or not, and the depth thereof. That is staple DP fare. It is interspersed with cruel put downs (not as much as usual) and hot making out sessions, while he also does a bit of detective work to exonerate the h from theft charges.

Their sex in the park scene made me perk up, as DP’s mcs are usually a moral lot so this transgression was crossing certain boundaries. An

Great read. Alpha sexy hero falls hard for innocent heroine who is engaged to another man. Loved the angst and passion!

To me this one was not the best of the series most wanted by DP but I was happy that she did not end up pregnant with his bastard child! Can't believe I said that!? He was a total asshole who comprised her twice in a public place. Omg so gross and without any emotions he just pulls out of her like it was all good. Omg!!! I was so mad at her for falling for it a second time!!!! News flash DP you can get a woman pregnant by pulling out!!! There is such a thing as pre-ejaculatory sperm and it is po ...more

I enjoyed reading Nick and Tabby's story. I always love a story where the hero tried his best to stay away from the heroine but he just can't.

Tabby has been in love with her best friend's brother since forever without knowing that Nick secretly wants her but won't make a move because he thought Tabby didn't want him. Years later, Nick realized that he still wants her and finally made her his woman. I'd say that its about time Nick make a move. It should have been done long time ago.

I liked Tabb

Dari 3 buku most wanted series ini, buku ke-2 ini yg paling gw suka, knp? krn co-nya playboy hehehee..n playboynya disini tuh bener2 cowo yg suka tebar pesona, jd asik bgt bacanya..
Buku ini tentang Nick dan Tabby yang sudah saling kenal sejak mereka masih remaja. Di malam tahun baru, Tabby, yang diam2 jatuh cinta pada Nick, karena mabuk malah kelepasan mengungkapkan perasaannya pada Nick. Kontan saja Nick yang shock langsung menolak Tabby dan hal itu membuat Tabby malu dan melukai hatinya.

It's just didn't work for me. *sigh*

Tabitha or Tabby's been in love with Nick, her bestfriend's older brother, since forever. But apparently Nick didn't want her as a girlfriend. And they grew apart after Tabby kissed him while she drunks and he said awful things to her. And now Nick's back and find out that Tabby's getting engaged. Plus people accused her for stealing stuff. He's going to clear up her name and claim her heart all over again..

It's not my favorite. In fact I skipped a lot while r

1993 condensed re-release under the title Marriage, Not for Me as a magazine give-away.

Nick’s had his eye on his sister’s best friend and childhood neighbour Tabitha for years but he didn’t think she was attracted to him. Incurably restless Nick leaves but when his sister goads him to return home for a much needed break Nick resists until he learns Tabby is engaged.

I did laugh when Nick switched roles and got all all angry and righteous, it was quite cute and funny.

I can recall at least
Nick Reed/Tabitha Harvey (Tabby)-he worked for a private eye and she was a college teacher..they had been next door neibors growing up, she was his sister best friend and she always had a crush on him, after their parents death Nick went home to get the house ready to sale...Tabby was accused of stealing a artifact from the school and she asked Nick to prove that she didn't steal the artifact...they spend time together and because she was in love with him they made love...Nick did prove that she ...more

lebih seru baca yang ini dibanding seri 1 nya ^^ co nya playboy en anti komitmen sedangkan ce nya sebaliknya, konservatif. asyik bacanya liat Nick emosi en cemburuan liat Tabby sama si daniel walaupun sebenrnya tipe daniel ini nga yang bisa dicemburuin, apalagi buat co kayak si Nick, but love is blind kan... :p Belum lagi salah paham akibat bedanya cara pandang hidup Nick en Tabby yang membuat keduanya mengira masing2 nga suka satu sama lain...gemessss banget sampe >,< finally happy end, i ...more

Sudah baca versi manga terbitan Level Comics-nya dulu. Adegan 'iklan buku berikutnya' menjelang tamat sempat bikin bingung, kok mendadak melantur jalan ceritanya. Maksa banget deh. Mungkin lebih bagus kalau agak subtle, seperti adegan pertama bertemunya James Malory dengan Georgie Anderson di Malory Saga-nya Johanna Lindsey.
this is related to the long tall texans - I think its the most wanted series.

This story was ok and there wasn't anything really wrong with it, but it didn't do it for me.

This is the first DP to really not entertain me, hopefully the last too.

Proud of the confirmed bachelor finally committing

Nick and Tabby were both in need and afraid of their feelings for each other but they got past their fears and now they have a wonderful future together.

Another enjoyable Diana Palmer. This is a reprint of an older book of hers, although some of the characters appear in her Long Tall Texans series at times.
