awww damn!

the emenies to lovers trope is definitely my weakness!

so, I went in blind, and then...booom!

I loved it, at first...

these two were like water and oil, until they became fire and gasoline....and that was perfectly fine and sexy and hawt, until the second half of the book, wheer they turned into a mush.

well, their stubborness, that was angsty at first turned them into annoying mess.

especially the guy...gah

yeah, could have been better

My 100th review and that too for the kind of mushy stuff i really adore.. :)

Ok this was just the kind of sweet delicious fare Linda Kage knows how to serve and I love so much. A hot surly deputy Sheriff completely smitten but unwilling to go down without a fight and a smart-alecky sassy lawyer who knows how to push his buttons. The H is all mush inside but does have some serious ass-y moments when his commitment phobia kicks in and brings on some real shitty sexist stuff. Sample this…

Rating 1.5 stars
I have enjoyed other books by this author but in this book I was like WTH all the time. Where was the romance in this one? The only thing I found was that the hero kept dropping by at the heroine's place for a booty call. They didn't talk, go out in public, exchange life stories, they just insulted each other and had sex. I found no emotion in the book and the hero was a major jerk, he as good as called the heroine a slut and I never saw him apologizing for his rude words. Hell,

Raith Malloy does not like lawyers in fact they were an irritant he could do without. They were a sanctimonious bunch of hypocrites.

When he found a BMW parked illegally he decided to unleash his anger on the unsuspecting “idiot”.

Pen in hand he started writing the ticket when he heard a voice shouting at him. “Excuse me” he turned and holy hell - instant lust. Sex in a business suit appeared in front of him and was the unexpected “idiot” parked illegally.

I could not stop reading this book. The way that the author put the two main characters together is full of chemistry and suspense.
Willow DeVane is a hotshot divorce lawyer who has a judge as a father. She is so used to doing everything for herself that she does not know how to receive help well. Some of her clients do not like how she defended them; they even threatened her because of it. She also leaves her home open, there is always an unlocked door so that her family can come and go as the

I loved it. The chemistry between Willow and Malloy was epic. Their fights were frigging awesome. The hotness aspect was way up in the stratosphere.

Willow meets Malloy when she illegally parks the car at a handicap space. Malloy being the good cop he is wait to give her the ticket, little knowing that she was going to change his life. They fought the attraction from the beginning. And boy were they really entertaining to read. What I loved about Malloy was his honesty and
I was going to give it 4 stars, but the end disappointed me. I hate reading about 15 years later, 1 do 6 yes but not 15 and (view spoiler) after all they just can't keep their hands away from each other.

I enjoyed reading the book - it was funny and interesting if only the end was better....

More Romance Than Suspense But...
Police Lieutenant Raith Malloy hates lawyers. He puts his life on the line every day to drag criminals to jail, only to watch them saunter out the door on the way to their next crime courtesy of some lawyer making a deal or winning a trial. It's enough to make a good cop sick. And a lawyer like Willow DeVane? She's the worst of the worst.

Not only is she a divorce lawyer, which is its own zip code of badness, but she's so damn good looking, so high class and sexy,

Raith Malloy is a tough cookie. Hot, too. What’s he doing for a living? Wait for it.....he’s a COP! It’s no surprise Malloy holds a bit of a grudge against every attorney he sets his eyes on. How dare they try to bust out the scumbags he sent on a supposedly one-way trip to the pokey! Of course this maddening woman Willow DeVane is one of them.

I have to fan myself after finishing up this read; it was incredibly hot and steamy! The main characters, Raith and Willow, certainly did not experience love at first sight. Lust, yes, but not love. For over half the book they were constantly getting on each other's nerves, biting back with snarky comments, and trying to convince themselves that they actually hated each other, all while having mind-blowing sex. It drove me a bit nuts at times; they both clearly were developing strong feelings fo ...more

The Right to Remain Mine was a good story, but it wasn't my favorite Linda Kage novel. Hey, it has some tough competition. The Trouble with Tomboys, How to Resist Prince Charming, Delinquent Daddy, and Hot Commodity were all spectacular, 4-STAR novels. All four novels were sweet, sexy, funny, and touching. I became invested in each story, and I came to deeply care each character.

Great book! Its a lts as simple as that. The book was great. Loved the characters. Loved the plot. Made me laugh. Didnt make me cry but i was sad in some places.

I knew that the stalker wasnt Theo Franklin. I didnt think it was in the begining, but when it got to about 40% of the book i knew it would be Theo. when Hilton confirmed that Theo had been locked up so it definatly wasnt him, that was all the confirmation i needed to know that it was Max Kettle behind everything.

I was grinning so much

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

This was a quick paced book with lots of heat, suspense and family members and was not what I expected at all. The sparks flew whenever Willow and Raith were in the same room whether they were together or not and when they did get together their chemistry became explosive.

They both fought commitment as much as possible and had problems communicating their wants, needs, desires and feelings partl

Surpreendentemente, o livro foi uma leitura agradável, divertida e prendeu a minha atenção.

Willow DeVane é advogada. E não há outro tipo de profissão que Raith Malloy detesta mais do que advogados.

Malloy é policial, divorciado, rude, grosso, orgulhoso, mal humorado, mas se vê completamente encantado por DeVane.

DeVane é exatamente o tipo de mulher perfeita para Malloy. Ela é independente, trabalhadora, linda, corpo perfeito, sabe conversar, mas é advogada.

Os dois não se suportam, apesar de se

The plot sounded interesting and the writing was good but I highly disliked the main characters.

Willow was immature and stubborn in a stupid way , also the whole not locking the door thing is ridiculous .. she's a lawyer who had enough encounters with people to know exactly how messed up they could be yet she does something like that which is plain DUMB , even people who are too trusting know better than to leave their door unlocked and for a single woman living alone .. really??

My first book by this author. The heroine is exactly what I needed to remind me that there ARE gorgeous, self assured heroines out there who are not defined by the men they love. She is sexy and confident and her connetcion with the hero is intense, just how I like it....He is a dedicated cop, a jealous, possessive lover. Shes a divorce lawyer who, despite falling hard and fast, remains tru to herself and her goals. Their attraction is electrical. Theyre addicted to each other. Yummy sexy scenes ...more

Linda Kage's one of my favorite authors. I absolutely love her Forbidden Men series so I decided to read some of her older books/writings. First of all, I've noticed that her writing's really, really different in this one, which makes sense because hey, this book's published in 2012(?). I can honestly say, in terms of writing, Linda's really grown mature so kudos to you, Linda!

This book is okay -- I'm not like in love with it but I don't hate it. The characters'

Way to go, Linda Kage!

It's been a while since I read Linda Kage's book and reading this one feels like coming back home. I loved it. I loved how familiar the characters are and how easy to caught up in the story in a very typical of Linda Kage's way.

Willow and Raith are stubborn in a different way. But they have one thing in common, they both attracted to each other. Willow is charmed by Raith Malloy's charisma but when the sparks fly, apparently Malloy's not ready to settle. He refuse to bent

My review:

I have not read many books by this author, yet the ones I have read have impressed me very much. Her books have a bit of everything. Intrigue, romance (very hot) and the normal misunderstandings and insecurities. I could also not guess the identity of the stalker until the very end. I loved it!

This was an entertaining read. I liked Raith. He was a good man…with the propensity to say and do the wrong things at the most inopportune times. Strong, sexy, intelligent - it baffled me that he thought he wasn’t deserving of Willow. His vulnerability endeared him to me, but the man had some serious trust issues. I wanted to hug him as much as I wanted to choke him. Willow was strong, feisty, sexy, and determined. She was perfect for Raith. I liked that they challenged each other. They were so ...more

Linda writes romance fiction from YA to adult, contemporary to fantasy. Most Kage stories lean more toward the lighter, sillier side with a couple meaningful moments thrown in. Focuses more on entertainment value and emotional impact.
