I enjoyed one particular book from this author in the past. But I couldn't quite go through with this drivel. Winter is a famous actor who is in a relationship with another actress, Melissa Irish. But they're relationship is not real but rather a set-up by their studios. And Flynn was hired to plan a party for Winter and Melissa's son. And then the story gets convoluted after that. Half the time, I don't even know what I'm reading anymore. The writing and the plot was all over the place.

OH MY GOD, I F**KING LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a great story….
I want Winter, and a pirate ship play area….
Magic - pure enjoyable magic…humor, wit, sexual tension, sarcasm, tasteful kink (loved the Halloween scene @ Velvet Smoke.), betrayal, a character you could hate (Melissa) and one you just had to love (storm). Flynn’s parents were cool, loved the Dad. Oh and Harry, with his tats, piercings, and gentle heart…so cool
Really like the story about Winters’ name, and his son named Storm so work

Flynn Rogers (yes she's a girl) has been in love with Winter Mitchell since she was 12 years old and he was playing a vampire on TV and now 10 years later she gets to plan his sons birthday party. She's nervous of course since she not only meets Winter but his fiancé actress Melissa Irish. The situation between Winter and Melissa is not what it seems, the attraction between Flynn and Winter is exactly what it seems but since everyone believes Melissa and Winter are the perfect couple in love whe ...more

Movie star meets lowly party planner and is stabbed in the back by his fake actrice fiance.
Miss Flynn Rogers is a good person with a great family that is tight knit and loyal which turns out to be really important otherwise it would have been all too easy to believe the lies in the end of the story. I was more then a little worried that there wouldn't be a good HEA, but do not worry, this author finds a good balance of dramatic and believable.

There was just something I could not connect with about this book! Cant quite put my finger on it.

But, got to about 20%, did not particularly like either the H/h and skipped to the end to see what happened!

Just the way they spoke to each other, after about 15 mins in each others company, with a huge over familiarity! Spent 30 minutes in someone's company, and all of a sudden, you know them well enough to log onto their Facebook and post jokes and photo shopped pictures etc!

This is a decently good book with no cliffhanger. There are dual point of views. This book includes your basic Hollywood people plus your basic normal people. Winter is a handsome actor who is in a made up relationship with an actress, Missy. Let me just say that I really ended up hating Missy. At first, I thought she was a great girl, then her bitchiness came out. Flynn has come to LA to follow her sister who wants to be an actress. Flynn is hired to plan a party for Missy's child.

I had read mixed reviews about this book so I was not expecting too much when I started it.

I enjoyed this book very much! I absolutely loved both characters, Flynn and Winter. It had a good and solid storyline and a great build up.

It showed a great romance and development between them and their relationship and a lot of well written, hot and steamy sex scenes ;-) (some very kinky though and not maybe everybodys cup of tea).

I am glad I decided to read it even though some reviews were not too goo
Winter's Heart is a really nice contemporary romance, it had good mix of humor, wit, sexual tension, sarcasm but..I have to say that I enjoyed the story a lot more than the couple, I felt Flynn was to innocent, and sweet and a little bit of a door mat, Winter was ok, he didn't knock my socks off. The couple didn't click for me and I am having a hard time putting my finger on why. I did enjoy the ending and their HEA.

5 stars for the characters, 4 stars for the story, 3.5 stars for writing style

I don't usually rate books that way; I usually just give an overall rating but for this book, I felt it was important to break it down a little bit, since I liked some things more than others.

I really enjoyed this contemporary romance. I've been wanting to read it since I read the description months ago and it was available for free, even better. It was time to read something off of my TBR shelf!

I really liked the H/h.

Shows me. I bought the book as a part of a book club, and the cover didn't thrill me as much as others have, but hot damn, I loved this book. A contemporary love story, with some really hot sex scenes. Hmm, so if that isn't your thing, you probably won't like it as much.

Flynn works for a party planning / event coordination company. As luck would have it, she gets tasked with planning a birthday party for movie stars Melissa Irish and Winter Mitchell son, Storm. Flynn has always had a crush on Wi

I am so amazed at this story you have no idea at all. I started this story and thought ok this book is kinda corny. But the more I read the more captivated I got. To say I love Flynn and what she represented is an understatement. This girl was beautiful who was spunky and always put her foot in her mouth. But she always put everyone before her self she had a heart of gold. And lets talk about Winter god that man was so freaking hot and sweet and caring. I fell in lust with him lol.

There are no words to express how much I loved this book. It has been a while since I've found a book this good. The sex scenes were hot and different. Not the usual played out ones and I loved it for that. The feelings felt real. The heart break crushed my heart. I love Hunter. He stole my heart from the get go. I wish there was another book coming out with more of him. Hot, sexy, sweet, loving, and a dick of course. Every man has his dumb moments, but I still loved him. I can't remember the la ...more

Winter,. that boy just oozes sex, "trust me," he grinned, his dimples winking at her as if they were sentient. Okay, now she was just being daft. "It is." He's outspoken, "I think you are prettier than you could possibly imagine," he said, leaning back in his chair and looking at her with a solemn expression." And Flynn good lord that girl just doesn't have a damn filter, "well, you just told me Melissa had sex with a turkey baster," she said, resting her butt against the edge of the desk since ...more

I am firmly on the ACW train and I will read any book she puts in front of my face!!! Having said that, I will always give an honest review. This one was a little hard to get into. I'm not a quitter and I don't ever give up on a read and I'm happy to say I'm glad I have this philosophy.

I feel this is one of those gems I was lucky enough to catch when it was offered as a freebie, that I would gladly pay for. It kept me entertained from the first page with a great cast of characters and entertaining dialogue. I liked the writing style, and I felt the story as a whole had a good flow it it. Intimate scenes were very spicy and well done. I read a lot, and the theme of "famous actor and ordinary girl" is one of my favorites. This particular story had a few surprises in it I was not ...more

Winter just oozes sex appeal but is living a lie, Flynn is a typical girl next door, spunky,putting everyone before herself and no filter when it comes what she says.
Enter Flynn into the life of famous actor Winter Mitchell, bringing him to life in many ways that he never expected.
Beginning to read this I thought ok its your typical sickly sweet romance, however continuing to read I realised it was way more than that, heating up, becoming sexy and drawing me in even more, I eventually ended up l

Sorry ladies, but I've found my new book boyfriend. Oh Winter (sigh)...ok, focus....
This story pretty much had everything you'd look for in a book. Girl meets boys, falls in love, turmoil, corruption, a classic bitch and of course the happily ever after. But it's the way in which A.C. takes us there that MAKES THIS A FANTASTIC READ! I can't gush enough about this book. If you haven't read it yet.....WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR????!!!!

I thought this was a hot book. Winter was a hot sexy alpha male. I thought Flynn was a straight to the point kind of girl. I thought the story had some hot sex scenes and Winter has been added to my all-time Hot sexy alpha Male. Some parts annoyed me, but I realized not everything in the book had to be perfect. Anyway great story and I'm glad I got a chance to read the story. Oh yeah, Melissa reminded me of Lindsay Lohan. I just wanted to smack her.

Flynn is LA with her sister Fallon, who is an aspiring actress. Flynn works for her mom's best friend as an assistant to event coordinators but gets sent over to Winter and Melissa's home because they have turned down all the other's they have interviewed for their son's birthday party. Flynn gets the job and that is where the story takes off. I love the humor, the heartbreak and the romance. This book had it all and then a HEA. :-D

Well I have to say - I'm glad I'm done with this book. I liked the first 25% of the book, but then it just went downhill from there for me. I'm not a fan of books where there's a third person who controls the relationship through gossip or vindictiveness. It just really pisses me off.... The story itself was just so out there - and it was all over the place...and sometimes just plain out ridiculous!

Winter's Heart by A.C. Warneke
3 1/2 stars

I liked plenty of parts of this story. I liked their love story, I loved their chemistry. I just struggled with the flow and pace of how parts of their relationship moved along quickly, and how some things occurred. I couldn't stand Missy, and how vindictive she truly was. All in all it was a good story, really, it was. Hot and steamy sexy chemistry. I just didn't connect well with some of the things that happened.

3.75 stars.
I have no idea why I enjoyed this book so much. Seriously, it should not have worked at all for me. There are so many cliches played out in this book, I should have just rolled my eyes and walked away. And yet, I Could NOT. I thoroughly enjoyed reading every speck of Winter and Flynn's story. And that is all I can say without major spoilers.

I really enjoyed reading about Winter and Flynn. Although, the girls having boys names through me for a loop a few times. And I kept thinking about Flynn from the Disney movie Tangled. At points I loved Winter and at others was completely disappointed in him. But he did redeem himself. First book by A.C. Warneke, and would def read more.

Wow this is better than a Hollywood movie :-)
Absolutely fantastic. Winter is such a hottie and Flynn so innocent and loving.
Just loved it all and especially the ending. I just wish there was a follow up later.

Better than expected

Better than expected

Not only is the editing good with only occasional instances of arbitrary capitalization, but the characters are believable. Yes, we all know how the story ends, but the journey in this one is very enjoyable. Well done!
