A science experiment for Rina Lowell as the newly appointed advice columnist and a committed challenge for Colin as he tries to get the paper out of the red. His adoptive father groomed him to be a newspaper man/anchor man and when the world bit him on the ass, Colin left... ran far far away. Now, Colin has to save the paper from ruins as his step-mother has other ideas how to run the paper while her husband is re-couping from a stroke in the hospital. She thinks advice columns and other fluff w ...more

Loved, loved, loved this book & the way she wrapped up all the characters. I just love the character she created named Emma who was in all but one of the books & of course that was the book that was the hardest for me to get through. She just brings life to the pages a slunk that you want her as you 80 yr. Old friend. The fact that she befriends Rina just adds more levels to this book since Rina is looking to start her life over in a new town after her husband's passing & her realizi ...more

Simplemente... una grandiosa historia

Harlequin... Gue sempat alergi mendengar nama penerbit yang identik dengan novel romance yang 'dangkal' dengan plot yang tidak greget. Kenapa sih kok gue kaya gitu? Karena gue punya pengalaman buruk dengan novel Harlequin. Waktu masih kerja (kalau nggak salah waktu itu gue sedang hamil AJ), ada bursa buku murah Gramedia di ITC Permata Hijau. Gue ke sana sama seorang teman, dan seperti beli kucing dalam karung, gue membeli beberapa novel Harlequin yang dibandrol harga 15 ribu. Teman gue bilang, k

She's a great witty author, Ms. Carly Phillips. I read this last book of the series first because I couldn't find the first ones. It's a great read and very energetic. You'll love the empowerment she often gives her heroines and Rina's character is no different.

Her books are always filled with chemistry so you must read this book as well although i'd suggest you read the 1st in the series first ;0).

Rina is a columist and Colin is the head/owner of the newpaper she's currently working for. Both

I enjoyed this book very much. It about a Newspaperman Colin Lyons needs to his life out and fast because. He could be letting the woman of his dreams get away who just happens to be a advice columnist at the same newspaper Rina Lowell. Rina is waging a sexual campaign against him that he can't hold off much longer but she is as irresistible to him as her column is to her reader.

What a fast and cute read. I have to be honest, though. Since it's been a little while since I read the previous books in this series, it took me a little bit to remember who the characters were. BUT...you can read this book by itself and understand!

Quick, fun read! Definitely a keeper, as I will most likely read it again!

I loved watching Colin give Rina a reason to take a chance, and Rina give Colin a reason to stick around. Good chemistry between these two. Very hot!

Cute, funny - an easy read for a rainy day. I enjoyed it and would recommend reading it to anyone who needs a laugh.

My thoughts are this was not Phillips's best work. Seemed a bit predictable. Seduce Me is still my favorite from Phillips.

Quick read that ends w/a petty, ridiculous, passive-aggressive power play by the heroine that I couldn't get to the end fast enough.

Perfectly predictable. Some stories are ruined by the predictable- these love stories are made perfect by being exactly what I need them to be.
