Truly touching!

I enjoyed reading this story. Zeke and Sheila's story was good, with a cute baby, and blackmail thrown into the plot made a enjoyable reading rxperience.

Dear God in heaven, this was a terrible book. Period. When I saw that it had an average of 4 stars with 110 ratings, I thought, "Well gosh, I don't read many romance novels, and I'm not sure I've ever read a Harlequin novel, but it is free and so I should try it and see if I like it." Case solved: I didn't like it at all. At one point, the main character actually had "quivering thighs." Gag! C'mon people, could you get any more "purple prose" than that? And the plotline...it made NO SENSE.
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read the story and do not wish to see its plotline ruined (bwahahaha - too late!) then don't read the rest of this review. :)
But there is some conspiracy to get Brad's brother, Michael, drunk and high on drugs so he wouldn't notice that he was having sex with this skank, a skank who was being paid to seduce him. Then the drug dealer (who was orchestrating the whole thing) could blackmail Michael with this baby. First off, drug dealers have enough on their plate in terms of protecting their territory and making sure their drugs come in regularly - they are not into blackmailing high society.
Second, the book never makes it clear why, after the skank got prego with Michael's baby, that the drug dealer suddenly decides to off Michael, but that's just what they do, and they make it look like an accident. In so many ways, this is a retarded plan - what would have happened if the skank lost the baby for whatever reason? Then they would have nothing for all of their efforts. It's not like the skank was going in for regular medical check-ups, I'm sure.
But for whatever reason, the drug dealer decided that Michael has to die, and so they kill him. Then the skank has the baby, hangs onto it for five months (again, why? Why not just put their evil plan in place as soon as the baby was born?) and then the skank drops the baby off at the the Catteman's Club with a note that the baby is Brad's. Of course, Brad says it isn't, but the paternity test proves that the baby is somehow related to Brad.
The drug dealer is trying to blackmail Brad with this baby, but never does he put any sort of plan into place to actually receive money for this blackmail - he simply leaves notes about how he's going to blackmail Brad. The whole thing is just retarded. The drug dealer has to be THE WORST criminal on the face of the planet.
Oh, and at one point, they're looking at the security footage of the drop off of the baby and all they can see is the hand of the person who did it. They say something about how the person doing it must have insider knowledge of the security cameras of the club. Later, when it is revealed who did it, nothing is ever explained about how on earth this skank and this drug dealer knew anything about the security cameras of the club.
I feel dumber for having read this book, as if it somehow sucked my brain cells out of my head. I cannot more strongly recommend that all copies of this book be set on fire, and for the world to never speak of it again.
But that's just my ever so humble opinion.

    Just not my type of literature!

    Too much trashy sex in it and too much unbelievable characters. Just not my type of read.

    OK. Characters are likeable

    written on a fairly predictable paperback romance template,
    the story line is fairly good, the writing so-so. Although
    I finished the book (which there are some I have not), I
    almost decided to put it down. Doubt I would read another
    book by this author.

    Predictable

    The story here is a good one but the whole thing is predictable. You knew where it was going. I felt that The sexual encounters,which were very graphic, detracted from the story.

    Good casual reading.

    LOved the story line, but devoting many pages to the sexual act was a bit much! I skipped most fo it to get on with the story. After looking at the publisher and the series I understand the sex bit.

    Quick Read

    I had to go back and look at the plot summary to remember this book and I only read it a couple of week's ago. This was a short,quick read with a pretty weak plot. Good to occupy your time while kicking back outside with an iced tea and enjoy the afternoon when you don't want to think too much.

    Read if you are a Harlequin Romance fan.

    This had a good story line, but was a bit too descriptive in scene details for my liking.

    Dissappointing

    The story line was interesting, but I had not expected it to be a "romance novel". I would have liked the time spent on developing the plot more.

    Romance...

    Typical of Harlequin fare, this is an easy read that is mildly entertaining. It does little to challenge the reader, but has few grammatical errors.

    Same stuff, different day

    A cast of thousands. Characters are oh so perfect. Look for stories about the hero's 20 siblings in the future.

    This is not my typical read, but I tried it because it was free.

    This is not my typical read, but I tried it because it was free. I found the plot to be superficial and cliched.

    It was ok!!!

    In my opinion, it was not Ms. Jackson's best writing. It was OK.
