    Marquita Valentine's debut contemporary romance is a fresh, fun,

    Marquita Valentine's debut contemporary romance is a fresh, fun, touching and at times laugh-out-loud read. Her characters are incredibly appealing. Christian, a Hollywood bad boy trying to make a new start of it, is delicious and one of the most romantic contemporary heroes I've ever read. His rakishly arrogant charm and English heritage remind me of the sorts of heroes more common to historical romance (which I love). Zoe is quick-witted, clever and so adorably human, and she tries so hard not to fall hard for Christian a second time, that I admired her completely. They are a perfectly matched couple.

    Valentine sprinkles her writing with contemporary references that give it a fresh, young feel, while the core of the story remains true to what I crave in a romance novel -- good old fashioned true love. I'm particularly fond of second-chance love stories, and this is a unique one. I'm looking forward to the next book in Valentine's Holland Springs series!

    Twice Tempted review

    Twice Tempted kicks off the Holland Spring series with Christian and Zoe's story. Christian Romanov has been a bad, bad boy throughout his successful acting career and needs an average, small town kind of girl to doctor his bruised reputation. But Zoe Ambrose has already played that game with Christian and lost. And what's worse, he doesn't even remember her! The author tells a heart-warming and witty tale of redemption and perseverance as Christian fights for Zoe's trust and her heart. You won't regret this read. I look forward to the next Holland Springs novel as well as anything more from this author.

    Awkward but free

    The only way I can describe the author's writing style is awkward. The book starts off oddly with a huge 'wink wink nudge nudge' moment that almost made be stop reading it by page 1. There seemed to be a few more of these weird moments throughout the book. At other moments in the book the conversation was so random i thought some editted out a huge chunk. There were too many characters introduced, obviously for spin offs/sequels, all of whom had weird interactions or conversations that left far too many questions to leave me satisfief with the ending. It was also repetitive and far too long.
    However, with all that said it was free and definitely worth the time.

    Okay

    Good book but not as good as the first. There were just too many lies between Christian and Zoe, especially on Zoe's part for the relationship to have any kind of positive start. Why she felt the need to lie in the first place is beyond me, seems to me that just being herself would have been enough. As the years passed she was like an emotional roller coaster. I swear she didn't know what the hell she wanted. At least Christian was always honest in what he wanted, her. Zoe played too many games, it just became too damn much, all to prove what?

    Overall it was an okay read, I enjoyed the sexual chemistry between them but that's basically it. Let's hope the next book has a bit more to offer.

    Great

    Loved this book. It was hard to put down at 1 a.m. I laughed so hard at the earthquake part, it was amazingly descriptive,no way yoycan't picture him sound asleep and her scaring him with her screaming. 286 pages of one of the best romances I have ever read. I will be ordering ALL of her 8 books. GJRA

    Well I can honestly say that reading the book you tell something happened however, what did happen between them was crazy and believable. Family issues are obnoxious but still family. I like that he went back to her but not after sh*t hit the fan and left for weeks. Great book. There was more emotions shown that everyone has about giving second chances. With persistence she knew he wasn't playing around and sometimes you just need that special someone to ground you from you past when it ruins your life constantly with reminders of those actions. Not always a great thing. But the end was wonderful :)

    Pretty good

    The book was pretty good unfortunately it jumped around a little and I sometimes had to go back to make sure I didn't miss anything. The story line was good and the author will surely get better as time goes on. I did like it enough to put the next book in the series in my wishlist.
