    Another winner from Patricia Ryan!

    This story drew me in from word one. I adore Tom--he's sexy, brainy and buff, the perfect challenge to Ally, who's torn between her attraction to him and protecting her family. And I LOVE the subplot involving Ally's wild little sister, Brooke. The suspense plot is exciting, with intriguing twists and turns that kept me on my toes. This story has great emotional depth, and the the icing on the cake is the touches of humor throughout. VERY highly recommended!

    Okay Read

    Pacing of story was too slow for me. The sister's relationship with the TV star was kinda distracting.

    Patricia Ryan is the best!
    I've been a Patricia Ryan fan for years and particularly love her romances. PURE AND SIMPLE is not only a romance but a mainstream book, with lots of subplots, depth of characters and intrigue. Tom couldn't be sexier, Ally more appealing and the track their relationship takes more involving. One other thing about Ryan--her craft of writing is absolutely the best. She has, as they say, a way with words and I often stop to reread a sentence or paragraph just for the beauty of it. This book is steller! A must read!
