A fun romp in the lake!

This was a fun, light, sexy read. The only problem I had with it was that it was written in first person and the present tense, both of which are not my preferred styles of writing or reading. Mainly because I'm nosy and I like to know what other characters than the point-of-view protagonist are actually thinking, I guess!

Personal style preferences aside, this was a really enjoyable read. I liked Dannie, the heroine, and felt terribly sorry for her at the beginning of the

“I will refer to you as the dumbass blond dude who’s obviously blind”

It is quite obvious that there is a lot of banter between this story’s main characters, their conversation was always fun to read and I am pretty sure if we had the chance to read about them after the point where the book ends, we would see that all that funny banter continues for the rest of their lives.

Dino was a very sweet hero, from the beginning of the story he was ready and open for a romantic relationship, as

Nadine's 4 star rating

This was a great start to a new series by T.L. Alexander, and I can't wait for the next book. I would consider this a spinoff of the Layers Series because this book's Hero is Dr. Dino Coletti and if you read the layers series you'll remember that he is the uncle of Alexia and Samantha, he has moved to a small little town in Oregon to fill a two-year medical position at the hospital. That being said you do not have to read the Layers Series in order to read this one, it can be

“Marcie said he’s the hottest thing to hit the lake since your dad. I told her, it’s not possible. You dad is and will always be the honey to my dew.”

“That’s how I knew my second husband was a keeper. I gave him the test… The third time we hooked up, I wore my biggest granniest, white cotton panties.”

“If there’s one thing I know, it’s a player. Dino Coletti is a major player, and I’m not talkin’ about chess. I’m talkin’ chest. I’m not going there again, ever. This girlfriend has
I received this book in a Goodreads giveaway.

More like a 3.5 stars. It took a little while to get into this book - could be that I just wasn't familiar with T.L. Alexander's style. BUT - once I did get into it I really liked it. I had to put it down with 25 pages left and I seriously considered shirking a few things (like sleep when I could barely keep my eyes open as it was) just to finish and see how it would end! The concept and storyline were good, although the final crisis and resolution ju

TJ Alexander has such talent. I first heard about her work on Reading Alley with the Layers series and her work in this book is just as brilliant. Dino and Dannie are hilarious with each other and you can almost feel the sparks coming off the page when they first meet. Dannie is a fascinating women that has been through difficulties that affect her self worth and it is hard to believe in herself or believe in others; but maybe she finally realizes she is perfect how she is and others believe tha ...more
Dannie O'Brien returns to her hometown of Whisper Lake, OR, after a messy divorce. She's sworn off men, but that doesn't stop newcomer Dino Coletti from trying to get her to go out with him. Dino has several strikes against him - he's male, he's a doctor from New York, and he was a man-whore - things he has in common with Dannie's ex. This story was both funny and sometimes sad with many unique characters and some awful ones (like Dannie's ex-hubby.) I did enjoy it and I'm looking foward to read ...more

Fun modern story

A happily divorced woman with money and a well adjusted child moves back to her hometown. She meets another doctor just after she swears off men. This book had me smiling, laughing, and nodding in sympathy. Amazing read read and good for the heart.

Loved this!! Dannie has moved back to Whisper Lake after a nasty divorce. Her ex destroyed her trust in men with his cheating and lawsuit to try and get her money. Dino came to the lake from Manhattan to work at the hospital as a favor for a friend. After 2 run ins (literally) Dannie can't fight her growing attraction to Dino. With meddling neighbors and the Goddesses blessing Dannie starts to let Dino in but after an incident at his house Dannie walks away despite everyone believing there is mo ...more

Small town, smaller lake.

I am officially a fan of author TL Alexander! The writing style is great without a bunch of extra characters thrown in to confuse the storyline. You learn about the people at the lake and begin to care about what each contributes to the story. One never forgets this is a romance though.

It opens with the demise of her marriage as she tells it to her therapist. (Dannie, the divorcee, has a lot of baggage to go through. A lot.) The romance between Dannie and Dino is not une

I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway, and am not usually one for romance, but entered to try to widen my genre consideration a bit, and was glad I did. This story was amusing, specifically the customary local greeting, and held some colourful language, which I always find makes for better reading. A blend of spiritualism, spunk, and swearing, to make the sappy parts more palatable. I feel this author knows her niche in romance. I enjoyed it, and will look out for the others in this serie ...more
It was a quick read. I enjoyed it looking forward towards the rest of the series.
