Wanting What You Get. Now, meet baby sister Marty, a savvy city girl with a score to settle who's about to get more than she bargained for. . .


Fate, You Are On My Bad Side

You have got to be kidding me! On a night like this, when most sane people are home to escape a blinding snowstorm, I happen to run into Millbrook's biggest jerk, Nathaniel Peck, the boy who broke my heart at my junior prom. The one who kissed me on a dare and let his buddies laugh at me. Well, eat dirt, Nathaniel Peck, because you might have noticed me on the covers of a few magazines under the heading: Supermodel. I live in New York City now. I will be leaving as soon as the weather clears. And frankly, if it were a choice between kissing you or braving downed electrical wires, I'd have to think about it.

It's official: I've regressed. It's just that I can't stand the Cult of Nathaniel Peck that has come over this town. Okay, so he is Chief of Police. So he did make sure I got home safely. So he didn't try anything funny with me. So that old smirk has been replaced by a sexy, sad smile. . . No. People just do not change that much. Somewhere inside Nate is the same leering, conniving womanizer I remember. And I intend to prove it. . .

Critique for: Wanting Something More By: Kathy Love Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars SYNPOSIS: It¿s a snowy December evening when supermodel, Marty Stepp, drives through Millbrook, Maine in her jaguar. She¿s left her modeling agency and career with no notice to spend the holidays with her family, sisters Abby and Ellie. On her way home, she encounters Nathaniel Peck, Millbrook¿s chief of police. She remembers him as a being conceited, but unknown to her, Nate¿s had a life-altering experience, and is not the person he once was.___ Nate follows her home that snowy evening, concerned she won¿t make it in her jaguar. When he approaches Marty, all she remembers is a time in high school when he humiliated her. Nate doesn¿t recall the high school incident at this point. Months ago, Nate was attacked while he slept in his home and almost died, going into a coma. When Nate woke up, he was a changed man. He grew out his hair, became a vegetarian, and is now a ¿big brother¿ to a couple of hard-luck kids. Despite the change, Marty is reluctant to believe it, even though the sparks fly between her and Nate from the moment they meet.___ Marty tries to fight her attraction to Nate, but its futile. She¿s hopelessly fallen for him. Nate, who is really a great guy, can¿t help but be attracted to the supermodel. He finds her gorgeous ¿ inside and out. They go out on a series of dates, and Nate tries to go slow for Marty¿s sake, letting her set the pace. Finally, on New Year¿s Eve, Nate and Marty consummate their relationship.___ Nate¿s old friend, Jared Nye, tries to come between Marty and Nate. His sister, Josie, tells Marty lies about Nate, which scares her so bad, Marty leaves to go back to her modeling career. Nate learns of Jared and Josie¿s deception, and follows Marty to New York where he wins her heart.___ CHARACTERS: Nate and Marty ¿ The Main characters Mary Stepp is pretty, personable, and ready to settle down after a high profile career. She wants something more out of life than modeling can give her. Nate Peck is a changed man and a very likeable guy. He¿s very contrite over his past hurtful actions and he¿s good-looking to boot. Abby, Ellie and their families - Supporting characters It¿s nice to catch up with Marty¿s sisters. Abby and Chase are expecting and while Abby tries to knit a blanket for the new baby, she realizes she¿s not much of a homebody. Ellie and Mason are very happy together. They have a daughter, Emily, who is adorable and precocious. Jared Nye ¿ The bad guy Jared wants everything Nate has ¿ his land and Marty, and will stop at nothing to get it. Through the course of the novel, it is revealed that he¿s the one who attacked Nate and almost killed him. PLOT AND PACING My only complaint with the pacing is that by page 200, I was as frustrated as Nate. Still, it¿s not enough to take away my five star rating. When Marty and Nate finally consummate their relationship, its very rewarding. The plot is perfect for ¿Chick Lit¿. It¿s a very engaging novel. DIALOGUE Crisp and sharp, it easily moves the story forward. DESCRIPTIONS Love gives the reader enough to allow the reader to picture snowy New England in the winter. There¿s not too much or too little. She¿s found the perfect balance and sets the novel well. THOUGHTS AND IMPRESSIONS ¿Wanting Something More¿ is a very easy read. Love is a master at Chick Lit and the Stepp Sisters series is very enjoyable. If you want to take a time out for an evening, this novel is the perfect one to do it with. Mary and Nate easily pull you into their world.

Id likle to see a fourth book telling whats going on with all 3 stepp sisters & their new families down the road if not then id like to see more books along the sane lines rather than all the vampire/supernatural ones. Some of us arent into all that even if they are romance

I love the story of the Stepp sisters. This last one was bitter sweet. So sad to think that they're stpries are done but each one had lovable characters and and easy read story that kept your attentions till the end. Even in the end i wanted more of it. I didn't want to stop reading. I loved all three stories. But the love story for this one was more gentle and romantic. I think because Nate'character was, out of all three leading me, he was the most romantic and such a gentleman! My second fave would be Chase but Mason is almost a tie. Read this book, they're great!
