Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Once they were inseparable...Matt Latimer, Reilly McKinnon, and little Jessie Sinclair. Jessie was younger than the boys, part tag-along pest, part honorary little sister, part mascot. Then life led them each along different paths. Reilly, whom Jessie has loved since she was 16, is trapped in an empty shell of a marriage. Matt is a prizewinning war photographer. Injured, he comes home to refocus his life and reveals a new interest in his old friend Jessie. Matt's among the first to hear that Jessie is through living on dreams of a yesterday that never was and wants a baby more than anything else in life. The only question left is -- who is going to be the father? Loving Jessie is more than just the story of three old friends, it's the story of three remarkable chances for new beginnings, told with all the heartwarming passion that bestselling author Dallas Schulze can command.

    I loved it!

    As her thirtieth birthday approaches, Jessica hates that she is still a virgin, and starts wanting a baby. A man would be nice too, but if she could have a baby, that would be enough. Her old friend, Matt returns to town about that time, unable to get Jessie off his mind after years away and going through many traumatic situations as a reporter. He loves her even though she was still a child when he left. Now, seeing her as a beautiful woman, he is stunned. <BR><BR>When Jessie asks him to give her a child, he at first storms away, but then comes back with a counter offer. He will do it, if she marries him and they do it the old fashioned way. She agrees, and two weeks later, they are married. <BR><BR>Life is for the most part ideal, yet there are some bumps in the road. Matt's abusive childhood, the things he has seen, all have left scars on his soul. Then, Jessie's first crush kisses her, and Matt is enraged.Can he forgive her? Since she has gotten pregnant by this time, does she even need his forgiveness?<BR><BR>***** This book has all the things fans of this author have come to cherish and look forward too, both sweet and heated, with gentle humor and appealing side stories that enhance the story. To some extent, it will remind you of the classic SARAH'S CHILD, but only superficially. There is a kindness to this story that will be soothing to you. ***** </p><BR> Reviewed by Amanda Killgore.

    amusing and ardent relationship romance

    In California, her loving grandfather, who raised her, died six months ago leaving Jessica Sinclair all alone in her grief. Almost thirty, Jessie realizes she wants a husband and children, but as the world¿s oldest virgin sees no chance of that happening. Of her childhood pals, Reilly McKinnon married five years ago the lovely Dana though he is having marital problems and Matt Latimer left eons ago rarely returning as he photographs the hot spots around the globe. <P>However, Matt has come home after being airlifted out of Kosovo. He is burned out and needs to heal when he becomes distracted by how beautiful Jessie has become. She decides to persuade Matt into giving her a child before he traipses off to his next assignment. However, Matt asks Jessie to marry him as he concludes their friendship can evolve into a loving relationship if he can convince her that he needs her in their bed forever. <P> LOVING JESSIE is an amusing and ardent relationship romance starring two charming couples. The Jessica-Matt diameter takes center stage while the Reilly-Dana coupling provide two additional angles to the relationship rectangle. The characters appear genuine making the tale filled with angst by underscoring the need to communicate between partners. Though the woes of the support duet are well written and intriguing it feels unnecessary to the prime narrative. Still Dallas Schultz has provided her fans with a robust read focusing on friends and lovers. <P>Harriet Klausner
