Knock Me Off My Feet
This was me while reading:
I confess, I haven't read an oldie for a while, but damn! This had all kinds of great surprises in it :)
I'm gonna keep it short and just say why I loved it so much :)
- The hero
He isn't some larger than life ultra-badass dude who doesn't know how to communicate other than with swearing and saying the word: MINE!!!!!!!!!
He's a cop, he's really smart, and he's a normal guy!
And I loved the hell out of him!!!!!
OMG he is perfect <3
How he was with her and what he did and just ...more
There was something about Quinn that completely unnerved her. He was a very basic man ... What he was, she decided, was incredibly male. He oozed it. He knew it.
"I don't know much about Ireland. I suppose you're Catholic."
Most of us are!!
We had a little bit of a mystery element. A litt ...more
Re-read 9/17/13! I love this book as much, maybe even more than when I read it the first two times. Stacey Quinn is a man's man, but even better he's a woman's dream man, my dream man!! There is something about him that touches me deep in my soul and takes my breath away. He treats Audie like she's a precious gem. He is at the top of my all-time favorite heroes list. I can't get enough of him! This is without a doubt, my favorite Susan Donovan book!
5 Stars...WOW!!! I loved this book. It had ever ...more
Will read more Donovan in the future.
Autumn Adams is Homey Helen, the Chicago maven of helpful home tips, like how to clean anything and what tricks to use to polish the floor. She inherited the job from her imperious mother as a death-bed commitment and has been miserable in the roll ever since. She's the antithesis of Homey Helen, with her horrible cleaning habits and her disregard for order and neatness, her spaz-girl ways, and her tomboy recreations. She's a mess and she knows it; horrible at relationshi ...more
Autumn Adams is a syndicated columnist known as Homey Helen. Homey Helen was Audie's mother who was killed in a random mugging in a bad area of Chicago. Helen's last wish was for Audie to take over the column. So, Audie quits the job she loves as teacher and soccer coac ...more
What I enjoyed:
* All the characters. I love that Quinn came from a big, warm family that totally contrasts with Audie's cold upbringing.
* Seeing the characters fall in love instead of it just happening in an instant.
Happy Reading Lisa
The problems and past of the characters are not exaggerated, but credible. I loved to follow the development of Audie and Quinn’s relationship: how they learn to trust each other, adapt to each other.
Pretty good mystery plot, with a surprising twist.
A steamy and emotional read!
Even though I know that it's a nice story, I couldn't get in the story. I stopped reading and started again a few times because I know it was worth to try. I think it was about my mood or we didn't click...
Someone is sending Homey Helen threatening letters. Who could it be?
The heroine is Autumn Adams b.k.a. Audie and Homey Helen. She inherited her mother's company, after her mother died. The company was a Martha Stewart type of show. She would provide viewers with help on how to do "?". Her mother was the real Homey Helen. Helen wanted Audie to take over her company, so Audie did. She wanted her mo ...more
I'm looking forward to reading more books by Susa ...more
Like I said, it was good, just not great. I did enjoy the story, but not enough that I will read it again just to relive the high's and low's of the characters.
I have to say the bad guy took me by surprise. I was not expecting it to be who it was!
Audie Adams has taken over a housekeeping column from her mother. Her mother was murdered and now she is receiving threats from someone. And now the police have gotten involved in the case. Detective Stacey Quinn is trying to figure everything out but he didn’t think he would fall for Audie. Something about her beauty mixed with her clumsiness is endearing to him. But Audie is not used to be lov ...more
I liked this romantic suspense. The plot and storytelling were good although the grammatical errors - and there were many - really irked me. I thought the MCs were great although Audie got on the nerves at times with her mood swings - one minute laughing and enjoying whatever she was doing, the next minute, crying over the same thing. I would take Quinn as one of my book boyfriends, definitely! Quiet, and yet during intimate moments, he says a lot of sexy and emotional things. Those...more
It is a decent story but it just didn`t do it for me.
One of those books that will not stick in your head for long.
The villian was predictable and motive too. Infact I was leaning in that direction as soon as the childhood stories started.
