    Great Book

    I try and write a revew every time I read a book to let
    people know if it is a good read or not for me. I always read others revews and if I see alot of bad reviews I pass up the book. This book was free book so of course you take your chances but it was over 700 pages long which that is a huge plus for me. I thought it was a good romantic story along with
    a good story line. Well worth downloading if you like romantic books.

    A Modern Screwball Romantic Comedy

    My Man Pendleton is the first Elizabeth Bevarly novel I've read, but it won't be the last! This book has all the right elements: a *sexy* leading man, a wacky heroine, an unusual situation, and *lots* of comedy! It's a definite must read!

    Wonderful romance with a little more story

    This is a great read if you are in the mood for a book that makes you feel giddy and romantic.

    Some cons are that there are parts where it feels like the author went back with a Thesaurus and picked the fanciest words. It makes some of the dialogue unnatural. There is also a theme of masculinity (specifically sterotypical "manlyness") that is off putting because it rarely flows with whats going on.

    Overall i would suggest this book to anyone who likes romantic books with a little more story. The romance between the characters is great. There is also an interesting story arc for the characters that gets a little dark and gives the story some depth.

    Not my taste, but some will like it

    Well written romance, if extremely predictable. Very, very long explicit sex scenes and a lot of emphasis on a stereotypical type of "manliness," neither of which I enjoyed. It would have been nice to read some plot twists I couldn't predict, but this isn't that sort of book. There was some humor, which helped lighten the atmosphere at times. I'm sure some readers will like this book a lot, even though I didn't.

    This was a straight romance. As a general book I give it a 3 because there was a lack of any other aspect other than romance to the book, however as just a plain romance I give it a 4. The characters were fun and had some complexity to them but I really would have liked a little more depth to the story.
