Another sweetly romantic Susan Mallery book. I just have an overall love of this author's sense of humor and writing style. I've listened to all of her books on audio, and she has the best reader (Therese Plummer on most of her books) that never fails to bring all the characters to life and makes her books unfold before my very ears.

This one was the last book of the Buchanan series, and one of my favorites (Dani's story). Losts of touching moments and worthy side stories. Of course she brought

Just love this family. I am sad this is the last book about them. It was even a treat to have an epilogue. Loved it!!

Okay, but not one of Susan Mallery's better books. This s the fourth in the Buchanan series and have read the first, and really enjoyed it. Based on what I previously read about Dani and what was disclosed to have happened to her since, this story had so much more potential. To have a love interest (whom I really liked) that just happened to be her long lost fathers adopted son was just plain weird. Also, the "Gloria" turnaround seemed too insincere and too unbelieable based on previous behavior ...more

What a wonderful finish to the Buchanan series! And yes, I have to admit, I'm pleased I persisted and read all four of them.

I loved Dani's story from the very beginning. As already mentioned in the review of Cal's story, it's a family story and I'm a big sucker for that! Family is big in this story as well!

Dani finds her biological father, who happens to be Senator Mark Canfield who's running for President. His adopted son, Alex, is his campaign manager.

The sparks between Dani and Alex, and the

I'm beginning to think there's nothing Susan Mallery can write that is going to impress me. It's the fourth book I've read after the Fools Gold Almost trilogy, and I just can't get into her. The plot on this was meh, and the characters were meh. I liked Katherine, who wasn't even a main. The two leads were Dani felt extremely wishy washy. She was just too good, and when she wasn't too good to be true, she was dishwater. Alex never quite captured my attention because I just never under ...more

Tempting adalah buku terakhir dari serial Buchanans. Kali ini tokoh utamanya adalah Dani, si bungsu sekaligus satu2nya perempuan di klan Buchanans. Di tiga buku sebelumnya pembaca sudah tahu kalau Dani bukan Buchanans murni. Ibunya selingkuh, dan lahirlah dirinya. Meski demikian, ketiga kakaknya tetap menganggap Dani adalah bagian dari Buchanans. Gloria, neneknya, kemudian memberitahu Dani siapa ayahnya. Dia adalah Mark Canfield, senator yang akan mencalonkan diri sebagai presiden US.

This is the 4th in the Buchanan series. But only the second that I have read and now I'm obsessed about getting the others. So I guess you can say that I loved this book. Susan Mallery is a smart and funny writer and a joy to read.

Dani Buchanan is a woman that believed all of her life that she was a Buchanan, but recently she found out that she isn't. She is the daughter of a US Senator that is running for President. She is scared to death about meeting him but overcomes her fear and try's to g

I feel like giving the book 2,5 stars but I am in a good mood so ...yeah...

Anyway, I was so excited to read this book after the last 2 books in Susan Mallery's Buchanan series were quite good but this excitement left already after a few pages. :( I confess, the beginning was funny! After that, it went down the drain. Like really...

It's like nothing really happened at all. No highlights, no nothing! I expected the book to be at least a bit funnier but even that was a huge disappointment. Maybe it

3.5 stars. This is the last in Mallery's "Buchanan" books, a good series for readers who like contemporary romances that are light in feel, but have some meat on their bones.

I read this a few years ago and thought it might improve on rereading in its proper place at the end of the series; it did, a bit. I appreciated Dani's straightforwardness and take-no-prisoners attitude in the previous books, and knowing how much she suffered in them made it more forgivable that she wimps out somewhat in th

3.5 Stars, rounded up.

Susan Mallery is my go-to for contemporary romance novels! I adore her writing, and have yet to meet a character/story I don't just adore! The Buchanan's have earned a special place in my heart now that I've finished this series!

I have loved following Dani through the series, and was excited to see her storyline wrap up! I'm so glad that she found her biological father, although I have to admit that I was disappointed with him as a whole. But his family? I loved them all,

This is a great book. I haven't read the previous Buchanan books, but this one stands perfectly well on its own. The plot is perfectly constructed, deceptively simple yet never boring.And all the characters are fun to read. Best of all, the chemistry between the two main characters, Dani and Alex, is convincing and highly entertaining. The attraction between these two comes alive off of the page and, despite their relatively brief acquaintance, you can really see them fall for each other as the ...more

Los cuatro libros que componen la serie Buchanan fueron los primero que he leído de Susan Mallery y me han dejado muy buena impresión, son muy lindas historias, contadas de manera impecable y con el aire clasico que me gusta encontrar en las novelas...quizas este libro que cierra la historia me ha gustado un poquito más pero los cuatro son muy bellos, los recomiendo si gustan leer historias de familia, a mi me encanta y disfruto mucho encontrandome a los protagonistas de otros libros en el sigui ...more

I liked the storyline of this book. Dani's search for her birth father, him being a politician with a big adopted family, Alex and Dani's attraction, the father not being perfect etc. The themes were quite dense and interesting, especially the story when it is centered around Alex's mom, she is a very interesting character.

I real page turner and it is nice to see a Buchanan lady who is as sexy as her brothers.

By far my favorite in the series. Conclusion of the four stories was done superbly. I find myself reading this one over and over.
Houve muito drama para este último volume, mas gostei do desfecho, previsível como se esperava.

I liked it. The last of the Buchanan clan was as interesting as the first. One of my favorite romance series I've read to date.

This is the last of the Buchanan Saga and as such builds on the previous books. A lot of Dani's background is covered in earlier books, but this book could be read alone but then would lose something.

Like previous books, secondary characters are important, but it is more about Dani's new family of her biological father. The book keeps things interesting and it has some interesting twists. Much of the story centers around political PR and her father's proposed bid to be President. I'm not sure I

Berturut-turut baca 4 buku Susan Mellery, rasanya keblinger juga. Jadinya agak-agak ragu mo ngasih bintang berapa ke buku ini.

Masih oke-lah dibanding Sizzling - Mendesis (Buchanans, #3) by Susan Mallery. Cuma sosok Katerine yang agak bikin sebal di awal, makin ke belakang makin keliatan kalo dia emank baik beneran. Kalo Fiona sih, emank bagian dia untuk bikin sebal pembaca, tapi justru malah gak bikin sebal diriku.

Gak ada yang paling paporit dari seri ini, tapi yang paling jelek sih menurutku ya Sizzling - Mendesis (Buchanans, #3) by Susan Mallery, ceritanya Reid-Lori.

Que buen final de serie, en esta si vimos malos malos (Fiona) pero igual fue relajante de leer

Me gusto como termino Dani y como aunque en algún momento no fue la que siempre vimos como era, fuerte y decidida, al final fue por lo que quiso y siempre haciendole caso al corazón. Aunque Alex era un dragón (el que lo entendió lo entendió) terminó siendo un oso peluche

Me gusto el final, por fin un epilogo

All the Buchanan's are either engaged

Or married and have all reconciled with Gloria. The Canfields are now part of the extended family. Katherine trusts Mark truly loves his life with her and was willing to give up his dream to save his family.
Not a fan of how wishy-washy Dani is, although I do love her spirit when it comes to fighting for her family.

Alex isn't even a Buchanan but I think he's my favorite boy from this series (I'M SORRY, WALKER).
