IN THE GAME OF SEDUCTION, HE WILL ACCEPT NOTHING LESS
THAN TOTAL SURRENDER.

When prim and proper Lacey Wright decided to start a new life, she never dreamed she’d be managing a sports bar. But she is determined to make it work even if she is a bit out of her element.

_yay_
When star quarterback Bobby “Mac” McIntyre comes home to get back on his feet after a particularly bad injury he is shocked to find that his sister Beth has fired his long time bar manager Gator and given the job to – wait for it – a woman.
Single Mom Lacey Wright’s biggest priority is to take care of her fifteen year old daughter Robin, and to land the job as manager for “Bobby’s Place” sure is a lucky break - being allowed to move into the apartment above, icing on the cake!
These two individual

I like this, it was cute and kinda funny. I was surprised that it was released in 2003 though. I would have pegged it from the clothing descriptions and attitude towards single parents as a couple of decades earlier. It's this last one that really bothered me, the fact that the main character is a single mum is really a huge deal. Here's a excerpt:

Anyone who said that times had changed, and unwed mothers were no longer thought poorly of, had never been an unwed mother. Rich and famous people in

It's been a while since I read this one, but I'm here at work on a Sunday afternoon with nothing to do - so I'm killing time going through some of the books I read but never actually rated. I've read this one a couple of times and loved it. Lacey Wright is prickly and straight laced and not at all impressed with Bobbie Mac, the owner of the bar she works at. Bobby Mac is a charmer and not used to being turned down so of course when she does turn him down - a number of times, well, that makes her ...more

I am so in love with this book, can i just say that i feel so GUILTY in saying that i loved the daughter's story soooooo much even though she was 16 yrs old, i think the author did a great job touching on teenage love it was just right. Both mother and daughter were well written and thought out because to have written a story also about the 16 YEAR OLD daughter was excellent and unexpected and i wish the daughter's story could have continued on with another book with the daughter being older of ...more

Bobby "Mac McIntyre, famous all-star quarterback for the Texas Lone Stars (that's right, THE Texas Lone Stars) has trouble letting people get close. But that gruff exterior is about to be challenged by the new manager of his sports bar, Lacey Wright. Sparks fly as this no-nonsense mysterious woman has the brass to stand up to the famous football star. But will he let Lacey in? And will he find Lacey?

A romance novel for staunch Catholics. Lacey's big shame is that she is an unwed mother. The boo

(3.5 stars) Looking for Lacey is my first book by author Linda Francis Lee and I will definitely be reading other books by her, though this one was not all that great. The relationship between Bobby and Lacey seemed forced and I found Lacey annoying at times.

I normally don't like secondary romances, but in this instance I enjoyed the developing relationship between Kyle and Lacey's daughter Robin better than the book's main one. Their secondary romance is what made the book 3.5 stars for me, ins

I thought my standards were pretty low when it comes to chick-lit, but I was wrong! I have standards and this book didn't come close to meeting them. I bought it to read on vacation, but I was so bored that I didn't bother finishing it. The characters were poorly conceived and the plot was less than believable. If you're looking for something in this genre, try one of Susan Elizabeth Phillips' books. Her books have a similar plot, but add a great sense of humor to the storyline.

Pretty good reading to pass the time. Once you get used to an author's writing style, it can be hard to stay interested. This book follows Lee's formula often seen in her paperback novels: repressed female working to survive against all odds meets sexy man who can 'unlock' her desires. CONS: not enough humor, predicable story line. PRO'S: at least it doesn't read like a typical Danielle Steele book.

I adored this book. It has a character from her Sexy series, (which was a fun series.) This book was a little edgier than the other series, which I liked. I was able to relate to the characters, and felt their emotions with them. I am still thinking about the book almost a week later. Highly recommend!

Linda Francis Lee ist für mich eine neue Autorin. Ich werde definitiv weitere Bücher von ihr lesen.
Looking for Lacey erinnerte mich ein wenig an die Romane von SEP. Besonders gut gefiel mir das Teenager-Paar.
