I wanted to read this book for no reason other than because I liked the title. Me shallow? Yeah, so what's new. At least I scored big time finding this gem!

Matt & Reilly have been the best of friends since childhood; and Jessie, ten years their junior is much like the kid sister neither one of them have. The story begins 20 years after Matt & Reilly have graduated from high school. Matt, a famous photographer, is coming home to heal from a bullet wound inflicted when he was caught in the

This is one of my favorite books by this author.
It had everything that makes romance great.
The hero is just the most amazing hot guy ever and I totally wanted her to love him. How she did not have a major crush on him in high school I have no idea!? He is one of my book husband for sure.
The heroine I can totally relate to. She loves to bake and when she is stressed that her go to stress release. (My husband tells me he can tell what kind of day I have had when he gets home at night and I have
I have been looking for another Dallas Schultz book since I read Substitute Wife, which was a favorite book of mine. SW just hit the right chord for me, I have seen some mixed, average reviews for SW, but I loved it. Loving Jessie was very close. Loving Jessie was an easy, feel good book, with rich characters and no villains just a few bad choices. It starts out so light and fun, but becomes serious and much deeper.

Can you ever go home again? That is the question the hero, Matt Latimer, is goin

It could have been a 5-star read, if the secondary romance hadn't annoyed the crap out of me.

Excellent character driven book. Written superbly -- you really connect with the characters.
I typically like this author but this one just did not suck me in. The characters didn't seem to be really fleshed out. The story meandered and the romance between Matt and Jessie lacked something. We didn't really see her fall in love with him at all. In fact most of the book was from Matt's POV. We did get more insight into what he was feeling for Jessie and how his feelings were evolving. There was POV from both Matt's best friend Reilly and Reilly's wife Dana. That situation should have been ...more

The book starts off in a love tangle!
With Jessie being in love with Reilly who's married to Dana whose marriage is in deep waters and then comes in the tortured Matt. Turns out all three best friends had problems.
And then Jessie and Matt end up married. AND KABOOM!
The book turns into a wonderfully sweet read- with Reilly and Dana trying to come in terms with their marital woes, and Matt and Jessie falling for each other. No character is perfect- all have flaws- everyone's life is tangled- but t
Not the best book I could have chosen for coming back from my romance-reading hiatus.

Both H/h didn't have much going on for them besides being in the weirdest love triangle.

The best character in the book was the betrayed wife of H/h's friend.

3.5* This is the second book I've read by this author and I can recommend them both. While this one isn't humorous like The Substitute Wife, it was an engrossing story with enough tension to raise it above average.

I've been reading a lot of just ok books and finally found a really good one. Easy to read, steamy and one that I could read again in the future.

Molto carino e un vera boccata d'aria fresca dopo una lettura così laboriosa e controversa come Antony...

First romance novel I ever read. Extremely sweet story with just enough of the "good stuff" to make it even better. Very memorable and will always hold a special place in my heart.
