Divorced, Desperate and Deceived
Finally we get the last member of the Divorced, Desperate and Delicious club’s book. For almost three years now Kathy Callahan has been fantasising about her very sexy plumber Stan Bradley. They’ve flirted and he’s asked her out so many times, but Kathy was just never ready, until now. But Kathy’s timing couldn’t be worse, because there is more to Stan than just being good with his tools. A lot more.

A total lack of action and plot, unsatisfying uber predictable ending (pretty much same as previous book in series), and lame main characters were all huge issues for me. All of the promised "action" tended to happen without the ...more
Stars: Overall 3 Narration 4 Story 2
Not having read the first two in this series, I did have a bit of disconnect with previous events, but this isn’t a requirement to understanding most of the events here. And the simple breakdown of plot here, the three friends finding support and healing in their little group. Now, with two of the three having found new love and happiness, the only person left to find a new path is Kathy – and she’s convinced that her past relationships have ...more

This is the third of the Divorced, Desperate, and series following Divorced, Desperate and Delicious and Divorced, Desperate and Dating. I read "Dating," but have not gotten around to "Delicious" just yet. It isn't necessary to have read either one of them to get this book, but the other characters from those books do play big roles in this one.
I admit that I am a sucker for books with pugs on the cover. I love when animals, especially dogs, add to a story. The pug in this one is a 1- ...more
I liked both Kathy and Luke. This book was light hearted while also being realistic. It wasn't one of those that went for laughs over believability. The heroine wasn't running around endangering herself and everyone else by ignoring good advice and common sense etc. The hero did a good job protecting her without being superman. The sex scenes were ...more
Oh, sure, she’s had some pretty good dreams ...more
Deceived was exactly what I was expecting: humor, craziness, and sex. And the added adrenaline and the feeling like I was about to fall off the couch. Yes, that nervewracking. At the edge of my seat for a whole long while. Not to mention the extra introductions to future books (yes, there’s more, even though Kathy is the last in the club, a new club is rising!).
This book brought you not only 2 POV’s but 4. Get ready to be inside Kathy’s mind and learn everything there’s ...more
The mystery starts as Like Hunter is undercover and yet starts to fall for Kathy, a divorced mom who has resolved to avoid men for the rest of her life. Through a series of events, Kathy is caught up in Luke's undercover project and true feelings come out. Can the new found love survive undercover work?
With many hilarious moments and many emotional moments Christie Craig's Divorced series is wonderful and a very great read.
Kathy Callahan, just like her two best friends, took a vow of chastity and ignored all things men. No matter that she is now the only one left in their group since Lacy and Sue ...more
Kathy Callahan is the last remaining single woman amongst a trio of 3 friends (I have not read any books by this author, but I am assuming that Sue and Lacy, the friends each had their own story previously).
Stan Bradley is the local hottie plumber, (I imagined Mike Delfino from Desperate Housewives while reading this book) and he’s got Kathy’s plumbin’ a hummin’. Unfortunately what Kathy doesn’t realize is that he is really a Ranger and ...more
In this book the heroine is Kathy, an interesting character with a secret past that seems to overshadow any plans she has to move on with her life. She's c ...more
I enjoy Christie Craig's books, and I enjoyed this one, but I admit I didn't enjoy it as much as I wanted to. The story of Kathy and Luke could have been a really hot, sexy and witty story, but it fell WAY short.
First, Ms. Craig switched the narrative between two, and sometimes three, different stories. While this is a technique that can work, in this case the switches happened so frequently in spots that it made it impos ...more
