Grrr. I'll try this again. The review went poof when I went to save.

This was a random book I picked up off a random pile of books that were picked up from bargain bins. Had I known that this was the third book in a series and not the first, I probably would not have picked it up. Lots of characters that we can only believe who they are and their motivations were better described in prior books. Lots of ongoing plotlines that don't make too much sense here.

Eve Caruso is a man eating daughter to a

The book is a fun summer read with several smaller characters that are enjoyable to read.

I finished the book waiting for the conclusion of who the Mob boss leaves his business to, and for the third sister to have her story. It never came.

This book was OK, but I generally only read romances as a breather in between the normal stuff I read. It did make a really good point about family is not what your genetics tell you, but what those who love you tell you. How can you quit loving somone after they've been a major part of your life since you were young? How can you not love a father that took you into his home even though you weren't really his to begin with? And how can you not love the mother that raised you as her own while bel ...more

Christie Ridgway has become a go-to for excellent contemporary romances. When I saw this in the UBS the last time I was there I decided to pick it up. I'm glad I did.

At first I wasn't sure about Eve's character. It's obvious she's shallow and is used to using her looks to get her what she wants. But I was never turned off by her, I guess because I recognized her actions for what they were - defense mechanisms.

Nash I liked right from the beginning. He was the perfect counterbalance for Eve. He d

A very cute romance about a misfit mob daughter, a monster truck driver, his famous actress of a sister, and various other mysterious and sometimes sinister characters. Where else but in Palm Springs can one find the Boss of Bosses for the California mob, aging actors recovering from plastic surgery, and slightly crazy men of all walks of life vying for a gorgeous woman's attention?

I always like Christie Ridgway -- her characters are believable even in the most unbelievable situations. there are times when some of the relationships seem too forced, and then there is always the secondary ones that tie up a little too neatly but all in all it was a keeper! I cant wait to read Joey's story!

Didn't make it very far into this book before I made the decision to put it down. Not my cup of tea...

The secondary romance was more forced, but Eve was pretty deep for someone who came off very shallow in the first book. Nash was a little unbelievable. Waiting for Joey's story!
