That's what crosses Clint Evan's mind the minute he takes on the four thugs holding heiress Julie Rose hostage. It isn't the danger--Clint's made the reputation by being reliably ruthless, a quality that keeps his wounds deeply undercover. What's got Clint in a lather is Julie herself. The pretty, petite schoolteacher he's been hi

Just a Hint, Clint, by Lori Foster is one of my favorite books to re-read. It’s a comfort read for me, and I don’t think I will ever get sick of read this one. There's just so much I love about this one, but I especially love the characters.

Clint is just totally heroic. He’s strong and tough and totally alpha, but also respectful of others and caring, and he’s not really pushy either. Clint is sort of like a private investigator, and he’s hired to save Julie Rose who has been kidnapped. He total

Just a Hint-- Clint. Yall. This is one of my favoritest of the favorites. lol

The Gist: Clint's been hired to find a kidnapped woman and keep her safe until the culprits are found. Not too hard a gig for a bruiser of a guy. Avoiding falling for her? Well now. That might be a challenge.

I absolutely adore Clint. He's one of the most unique heroes and one that just captured my heart from the start. He'

I really, really liked this book. Clint Evans is one of those guys who thinks he isn't worth loving and doesn't need a woman except for the obvious. Enter one Miss Julie Rose who has been kidnapped and threatened with violence. Now Julie Rose is not the most beautiful or voluptuous woman in the world but somehow she gets her hooks into Clint and he's a goner from the beginning.

This is a sweet romance that shows you how falling in love should be done. This is the first I've read in the series bu

This one started out with real promise but I felt it lost it's steam somewhere there in the middle. I liked that Clint was a protective, tough character, but I found that along the story road that the antagonist's were just not believable. Just a Hint Clint started out with 5 stars, but ended on a 3 star vote.

Ahhh! Much better! I'm glad I continued on with this series. I didn't really care for "The Secret Life of Bryan." but wanted to give the series another chance and "Just A Hint Clint" has redeemed it for me. I really liked both the H/H in this book. Julie Rose had just enough feist to make me happy but not appear overbearing. And who wouldn't like a hero with a rather embarrassing side effect to beating up the bad guys?

I got halfway through and DNF'd this one. I was bored but breezing through until I hit an incredibly unwieldy patch of exposition and info-dump. I had no desire to keep going after that.

I’m going to do this review a bit different from my norm.
What I didn’t like about the story
The book can be read as a standalone but it is billed as the fourth book in the Visitation series. The heroine Julie Rose regularly mentions characters from earlier books in the Visitation series based in Visitation N.C. where I’m sure she was probably introduced to readers previously as a minor character. For me I was often left feeling like I was dropped into the middle of a social gathering where I didn

Just A Hint-Clint had me hooked from the opening page right through to that ending teaser for Jamie’s story to finally be told. It’s intriguing, intense and satisfying on so many levels. Considering that the Visitation, North Carolina series was originally released back in 2004 please don’t ever think that an author’s earlier works can or should just be left on the shelf – Lori Foster is an amazing storyteller, and she only gets better as the years pass.

Great read

Clint and Julie's story was fun and exciting. Julie really got to cut loose and enjoy life once Clint rescued her. Having Joe and Jamie show up to help really upped the excitement factor. I can't wait for Jamie's story. I would recommend this story to any adult reader that enjoys action packed books with strong heroes and heroines.

I loved this story. It was a fun adventure and I really enjoyed the interaction between Clint and Julie. I liked how much stronger Julie was in this story. Glad to see Jamie and Joe make an appearance when Julie needed them. The author kept me guessing as to who was behind the kidnapping. I look forward to the next book.

Clint and Julie both needed hints!

I can finally say i finished the whole series! Each one was great on its own but i LOVED them all! Just the right mix of, romance, humor, and suspense! Poor Clint..had to laugh at his problem but this was so good! Thanks Lori!!

Dnf. It just wasn’t enough. Not interesting enough. Not great characters, not a great story either. I put it down for a few days when I got busy and I had no interest in picking it back up again.

The back cover (and the cover colours and the title) made this book sound a bit different than what it is, they make it seem more light hearted somehow. Its a bit more serious and gritty once you start in. More 'noir' actually. I found it hard to make the switch from my initial expectations, initially. (They need to fix the title, cover & the back blurb!)

I liked it, though. Of course, I figured out 'the bad guy' right from the start, I sometimes find the plots in romantic-suspense a bit on the

This one had me to the very end. I was blindsided by both the villain and the motive. For that alone it gets 5 stars. That the story was wonderful and very sweet was a bonus. Julie Rose has been a background character in all the books of the Visitation, NC series and she was a sweet, docile schoolteacher. She was described as being plain and not a forceful personality. Well, Lori Foster decided to kick this character up quite a bit and show us that a plain Jane type woman can really kick butt wh ...more

Contemporary romance with protected sex.

I now remember why I haven't reread these books lately. Holy crap! We get another bad Lifetime Channel event.

This one is Julie's book. Julie is the very plain, skinny teacher that befriends the gang in Visitation NC. Julie gets kidnapped & her ex-fiancé hires Clint & his boys to rescue her. Clint is also not attractive physically. I only mention this because we're beaten over the head with how very ugly they both are over & over at the beginning of this

I really liked this book at the start it was quite gritty but sweet and sexy too. I loved the character of Clint who was very rugged and manly (so sexy!) A real take-charge kind of a guy but in a good way not a drag-her-off-to-his-cave-by-the-hair sort of way (that's a whole different genre!).

I initially really liked the character of Julie Rose too, she seemed really sweet and a bit kooky. But then we got half way in and it all when downhill from there. Julie Rose suddenly turned into a really i

It was a quick read. A typical romance with just a hint of danger thrown in. It was entertaining enough although it is easy to get used to the formula of romance and then it gets tired. The heroine, however is grating. Completely unrelatable and not very likeable and I usually have a low threshold for characters so that is saying something. The characters are a little one dimensional which also pulls from the lure of the book. There is a segway into the next book in the series which I may check ...more

This is typical early Foster. The hero is a super Alpha. The baddies aren’t so scary. The ending is far too drawn out.

Still, this is probably my favorite book in this series. I just like Clint and Julie so much. I’ve always like Julie with her grounded no nonsense attitude. I was a bit disappointed in her uncharacteristic clingy ways, but I might be clingy after being kidnapped, too. I really like Clint with his barfing after violence. That was a nice touch.

I loved this book. It was funny it was sexy and it was hot.

Clint Evans is a mecenary who specializes in rescues. He likes to think he's a macho manly man, except for his tendancy to throw up after beating up the bad guys. *snark* Really, I nearly died laughing at it.

Julie Rose, Clint's latest rescue, isn't delicate as Clint thinks. However, she does look at the world with rose coloured glasses. Anyway, she sees the good in Clint despite his every protest to the contrary.

But, the question still
