He was everything she didn't want. Possessive, demanding, intense. Maddox "Mad Dog" Palmer wouldn't be ignored or forgotten. But Annie had to stay away. He was a cop though on medical leave and her ex-husband's best friend. He was the first man who'd made her feel passion and who'd left without going further.

Fighting for independence, for custody of her son, Annie strove t

Lizzie
Ridiculous title but decent book. I liked Annie's steady determination to turn her life around and Maddox was a good fit for her and her kid. If their abortive high school romance was rekindled a little too quickly, so it goes in series romance. The weakest part of the story was the lingering resentment from Annie regarding events of high school past- while everyone should have certainly used their words I cannot blame Maddox for pulling out so quickly given the very real legal and ethical issue ...more

Ann and Maddox reunite after 12 years. Ann, abused by her soon-to-be ex husband, is trying to learn what she is like without him overshadowing her. Maddox has his own demons to contend with. This book was sweet and angsty, just like I like it. There was misunderstandings but they discussed problems like the adults. The ex husband gave enough tension to the book. I will be reading more by this author.

This is another wonderful read by Virginia Kantra. She is a superb writer, and this one is every bit as good as the previous MacNeill Brothers novels.

Ms Kantra's plots are terrific and logical and her characters are very believable and likeable.

I only wish she could write faster!

This book feels like it shows its age more than the others in this series (in fact, it feels older than originally published in 2000.) But it was an entertaining short read while enduring a long drive so there's that.

How can you not love a book with a character named Mad Dog?

Mad Dog and Annie's love story is a story about moving on from the past and getting the second chance to fall in love. Annie Ross, whose story really begins in The Comeback of Conn MacNeill, is going through a tough divorce from the town football hero. Maddox "Mad Dog" Palmer has returned home to lick his wounds from a tough work experience. When Mad Dog finds out that Annie is no longer married, he sees it as his chance to get the girl

Ms Kantra scores again with a winner in this fourth and last book in the MacNeill series. The two main characters are well drawn and draw the reader into the conflicts each has in his and her lives. Characters from the first three novels in the series reappear so the reader is updated on the situations in their lives. For this reason, I strongly suggest reading the series in order. The story line in this novel is an extension of a situation in the earlier novels with the intro of a new character ...more

REALLY HOT, CUTE, SEXXY, ROMANTIC READ. MADDOX "MAD DOG" & ANNIE, GREW UP TOGETHER BUT DIDN'T GET TOGETHER UNTIL HE RETURNS TO TOWN AFTER MANY YEARS BEING AWAY. THE ONLY THING I DIDN'T LIKE WAS ANNIE BEING SUCH A TOTAL F-BOMB VICTIM, THAT GOT ON MY NERVES SOME WHAT. I LOVED THE STORY LINE AND EVEN THOUGH IT'S A SERIES THIS COULD BE A STAND ALONE. I LOVED THAT. I WAS SURPRISED HOW MUCH I ENJOYED THIS, GLAD I DID. ;>

Very complicated H/H, esp. the heroine. She was in therapy, and this character didn't seem ready for a new relationship. If she was a person, I'd advise her to wait and work through more of her issues prior to getting into a relationship. :D Of course, she's not real, so it all worked out. Kantra did lots of character building on this one.

I really looked forward to this book. The premise had promise. Unfortunately, it didn't deliver. I still like Patrick the best.

So good! I loved everything about Maddox and felt so sorry for Annie and Mitchell. Great eye-opener to the horrors of domestic violence

Kantra has a lush writing style that I really admire and characters who are well-rounded and believable. Not to mention that her MacNeill heroes are luscious enough to eat.

I thought this one was fine, but nothing really stood out for me either, except maybe the nastiness of the ex husband. A nice way to pass an afternoon, but not a big deal either

So happy that Annie got her HEA. Maddox was a great character, I really like him (although, like Annie, I really wished he wasn't a smoker).

Was a very nice read. The characters didn't grab me, maybe I couldn't relate? Virginia Kantra is a very good author will continue to read her books

“You’re too trusting. You ever think maybe I didn’t stop by just to light sparklers for the kid?” “Then why did you come?” His deep voice reverberated, making her shiver. “Maybe I want to see if I can light you up, too.” Her heart thumped. She twisted her hands together in her lap. “Are you talking about...?” “Sex. Yeah.” She wrenched her head to glance at the upstairs windows, as if their words could somehow penetrate her son’s curtained, closed and darkened bedroom. “Well, I’m not,” she said crossly. “I don’t talk about sex.” “Okay. Why don’t we do it instead?” 1 likes
