The Italian's Suitable Wife (DiRinaldi Brothers Duo, #1) by Lucy Monroe The Italian's Suitable Wife by Lucy Monroe. Well, possessive suits as a description for the hero, but not in the fuzzy wuzzy kind of way- more like in the dude is kind of creepy kind of way. IMHO. I couldn't stop reading this though, for it had that "I'm horrified but can't stop staring" kind of fascinating effect.

Lovers Not Friends by Helen Brooks Lovers Not Friends by Helen Brooks. Jealous hero. I thought this book was super romantic.

Lulu, that book IS like the proverbial train wreck...I just couldn't help but gawk, repeatedly. I've read that book like THREE times for some reason. I also have the audiobook-it was on sale at Audible.com. Actually, I got the audiobook FIRST then plopped down cashola for the Kindle version. I am sick when it comes to that book.

Ah, heck. What's the secret? No, don't tell me. Crud. Now, I gotta buy the book. Let's see....eat or read? I'll ask the family, and we'll decide together. LOL Ok. On the list for next month's reading "budget."

ROFLMAO I actually wrote that with a straight face that lasted for all of two seconds.

Alexis, you had me on the floor laughing at that one. I know, right? It's so bizarre that you can't put it down.

If you want to find out what the big secret is for Lovers Not Friends, there are some reviews on Amazon that tell you more about it.

I hope you enjoy it. I am always a bit reluctant to make recommendations because I find my taste is not so similar to most people.

I understand. I am hesitant about recommendations because then I feel all squirmy when they hate a book I recommended.

For some reason, I just love this book,maybe because LC wrote every romance cliche in this book that this book is one of my personal favs.This is also the 1st HP that she wrote also.

I did not know that. Not bad at all, for a first try.

I know I like when I find out there is honest review regarding a book.

I may have different tastes from others but I do not hold it against others who do not agree with my reading choices. I feel as long as I am reading I doing more then a lot of people I know who barely read one book a year.

I have learned a lot from others on these lists about books I do not even know about or the ones I want to avoid.

Rachel, it's great to be on a site like Goodreads. You can learn from the community and at least get some insight into different books, even if it turns out you don't want to read those books.

Glad you enjoyed it, Vashti. This one was one of the better Abby Greens I have read though I confess I haven't read all of her books yet.

Vashti | 732 comments Lulu, she is one of the "newer" authors that I really enjoy.I am dying to read THE STOLEN WIFE" by her that has the Bollywood heroine, intresting to see what the author will do with a heroine with an Indian heritage as I have one myself{can't you tell by the name,lol}.

That book does sound interesting Vashti. Bet she was thinking of Aishwarya Rai.


message 39: by Vashti (new)

Vashti | 732 comments I thought the same thing too,lol, as her background is somewhat similiar.


message 40: by Vashti (new)

Vashti | 732 comments Lulu,are you British? only asking because I don't think many Americans would even know who she was unless they saw the last Pink Panther movie.

Vashti, I know her from Bride and Prejudice and The Last Centurion. I'm a movie buff, so I try to keep up with the actors, especially multicultural ones.

His ILY was so OTT that he couldn't think of any otha way to express his intense feelings more eloquently than wrapping his paws around her pipe.

I read Lingering Melody over the weekend, and the hero definitely qualifies. I love those guys, so long as they aren't abusive.
