I like it! That's all l can say. Often, l have long reveiws, becae l tend to get on people about poor grammer, spelling, puncuation. Your's is perfect. It's easy to overlook a typo, l will mention, but it doesn't distract from the storyline. I think, after you probably do that mature content stuff, you may need to find something really intresting to put in for plot. It's not falling yet, but it could soon. But l know you're a superb writer, so c, sure you'll find something! I now realize that "I like it" isn't all l could say.

Okay, the story will get PG-13 with mature content in part two, so there is a warning. I am not going to go into excruciating detail, l will be keeping a minimum of select words like most best-selling authors do. <p>I drew what any normal person would draw if they have no inspiration: a heart. I used the side of the chalk to shade in the upper left part. Dust fell down, littering the air, and l coughed. I put an arm over my nose and finished up the heart with some artistic touches of shading and volume. Above the heart, l wrote, "A moon forsaken", beneath the heart, "Sun over all". I drew two bones crossing each other under that last phrase. I drew a skull above that, with two hollow eyes, a hollow nose, and a mouth crawling with dust. Death dust, l imagined. I shaded in a few outside lines a bit to give it a more realistic feel. Under the skull, l wrote: "Both will perish."<p>l walked down the never-ending, (or so it seemesd white hallway woth my therapist at my side. She strode with such confidence, with a high air. I looked down, to where l should be wearing a bra. I hated not being able to wear a bra. I kind of just stared at my bre<_>asts as we walked, despising their shape. One was larger and puffier than the other, and the smaller one just looked plain pitiful. I resolved in asking a doctor at my annual check up, which lukily happened to be next week. Ten days. I can do this. <p>I could feel my hospital gown brushing against my thigh, about four inches above the knee. I glanced up to see a teenage boy, possibly 16 or 17. A crooked and (l must admit) se<_>xy smile lingered over his lips. His gaze was watching lower down than l would be comfortable with, around my thigh area. I looked down self-consciously and was absolutely mortified to see that the gown was only covering half my thigh. I could just image that l looked like a str<_>ipper! "Miss-" l whispered, "my gown-"<br>She shot me a stern look. This was a no-talking zone, and l knew it. <br>"But, miss-"<br>"Hush," she hissed, pointing to the sign that has a big red X over the picture of a person with their mouth open, obviously talking.<br>l felt absolutely miserable. I glanced over at the boy, who was now staring at my eyes. Shaggy, brown hair partly covered his eyes, so it was difficult o see if he really waa looking directly at my eyes. He was. His dark, brown eyes were staring directly into my dull, gray eyes. I walked faster, a step ahead of my therapist. I decided that when l sat down, she would see this despicable size.<p>She led me into her office; or, rather, l led her. I quickly took a seat, waiting for her to get settled. She moved some papers around, took her time in logging into her computer, and finally sat back to look at me. I shifted self-consciously, aware without looking that l was barely covered waist-down. Apparently my brightly tanned legs showing more than normal caught her attention.<br>"Good gracious, Arianne! What are you wearing?"<br>"l was trying to tell you in the hall," l started, blushing. "A boy was staring at me. Down there."<br>"Hormones," she exclaimed in exasperation. "You wait here, l'll get you a change. Size?"<br>"Uh... five, l think."<br>She whipped out into the hallway, not even bothering with closing the door. I shifted uncomfortably, looking around the plain walls. The same teenage boy l saw earlier passed by the door. Alone. He glanced back, meeting my eyes, and the grin that as still there widened.<p>-Starry &#10023 Night

Wow! I absolutely loved this book! It was full of charm, funny and sexy! This was a great romanic comedy full of laughs and toe curling moments! I loved the characters Rick and Shannon, opposites really do attract and it doesn't hurt that Rick is sexy as sin, 'a sexy beast'. Also, let's not forget about Rick's dog Bert aka 'hard on' lol, the loveable confused teddy bear that caused them to meet, he was just adorable! I loved it! Trish Jenson strikes again with another hit! I have loved all of her books and sadly I have read them all now:( So, please hurry and write some more books. I can't get enough of them! Kelly

Just This Once is a story of people who turned lust into love and learned that sometimes it is very hard not to judge a book by its cover. - Full review available at RomanticReadsandSuch on Wordpress or BookTrib's website

This was a fun quick read with a handsome cop hero and opposites attact kind of heroine.  She is the daughter of a minster who wants  a bad boy. He's a bad boy but not really. Of course, he has a heart of gold.  I loved the secondary characters in this book and hope they got their own romance. It looks like the book sets that up.  I didn't love the book because the heroine stays on the surface of the hero for a long time. Its annoying.  I would have liked to move through that conflict to another one.  None the less, I have always enjoyed Trish Jensen's books and I enjoyed this one as well. The dog is great and funny and worth the read all on his own. I was given this book for my honest review, So, there you have it!
