Carly Barnett's lifelong dream was to be a journalist-tracking down leads, interviewing important people, making a difference. A job offer at Portland's Oregonian Times seemed like an ideal place to start, until she learned exactly what she'd be doing. Writing an advice column for lonely hearts wasn't quite what she'd envisioned, but it was a beginning.

Recommends it for: Anyone who enjoys romance novels.
Recommended to Dawn by: I read all of Linda Lael Miller's books.
Good romance story. It was a quick read, but I enjoy Linda Lael Miller's Western Romance more.
This one was okay, but not one of my favorites. Carly is a former beauty pageant winner (scholarship opportunity?) but is trying to move past that image. She graduated from college with a degree in journalism, anxious to make her dream come true. Hired to work at a Portland newspaper, on the way to Portland from Kansas she happens to meet their top reporter. Though sexy as can be, his rather condescending attitude toward her grates on her nerves.

I have to admit that, like Carly, Mark's attitude

I started this one thinking it was a current novel of Miller's , but quickly realized I was reading one from the 80s (turned out to be 1990, but still). The heroine gets to be feisty only for a couple pages, but is quickly subdued by the dominant hero and her own treacherous ladyparts. Plus there are other conventions in the story that don't hold up well, like the huge bags of mail she gets as an advice columnist. And one person she meets refers to her as "Miss USA, nineteen - eighty... " Made m ...more
A light, enjoyable romance. I recently bought this book at our local library book sale, in which you pay only $1.00 for all the used books you can fit into a grocery bag! What a deal! It was a lot of fun. I ended up buying three full grocery bags of books. This book originally came out in 1990, so it was interesting to compare the differences from today's current times to 1990 (no cell phones, no internet, the main character wore a "fashionable, turquoise blue jumpsuit" on a date, and their meet ...more

I quit this book after 10-15 pages. While many times I enjoy this author, this book was already "We cannot get along in the same room, but I can't keep my hands off you, (3 pages of foreplay & ecstasy) but I refuse to communicate what I'm thinking or feeling, so we'll both stay tortured". No thanks.
This book was one of the better ones from LLM. The story really started strong and great. The attraction between the two main characters was really enjoyable read. Unfortunately, the story kind of plateaued for me from there when I expected it to finish on a stronger note.

This is by far my least favorite book by Linda Lael Miller. I love the occasional romance but this one simply one sexual romp after another with very little actual story line.

a fast quick read with a predictable ending. Really not her best work but enjoyable enough when there is NOTHING else to read

I generally like Linda Lael Miller''s books. This one reflects the time it was written and had not aged well.

Quick read. Cute, funny, predicable and a bit rushed. But overall a good read.
