Giving In to You by L.M. Carr

Second grade teacher, Mia Delaney, isn't looking for love. In fact, she isn't looking for anything at all because life hasn't been fair. Everything-the idea of love, her hopes and dreams-was ripped away in a single night.
Arrogant yet sexy Adam Lawson makes the move to a small town in an attempt to escape life in the city. Here he hopes to provide a fresh start for those he loves and protects with a vow to never let anyone get close enough to hurt them again.
A chance encounter with Miss Delaney begins a relentless pursuit that has Adam breaking his own rules when he makes an offer she simply can't refuse. Despite her internal struggles, Mia knows there's no denying the attraction between them.
But when acquaintances become friends and friends become enemies, Adam's need to protect those around him becomes even more crucial. Will the tangled web of lies and betrayal combined with past insecurities become too much for them to handle?

With so many GOOD books to read, why waste your precious time on one that isn't? Right from the get-go, this book does *not* tell any kind of a clear, organized or cohesive story. It starts with a prologue scene so ridiculously over-the-top that you can't understand it or wrap your brain around it, with the event never being explained or brought to any meaningful conclusion - and then the rest of the book continues in the same bizarre, out-of-control manner. The main character's behaviors, perceptions and thought processes make absolutely no sense, and we never get any honest idea of who she is. The male character comes across as schizophrenic, angry and unlikeable. His interactions with his children are empty and insincere, with zero pretense of love that I could detect. Actually, NO one in this book is likeable, or even relateable. No clear rationale is ever provided for anything that happens. Nothing in the (sadly lacking) plot is in any way believable or enjoyable. In addition, the writing is sloppy, with words misspelled or often skipped entirely. Acronyms are used that only those privvy to a particular lifestyle would know; I had to look them up, but then was confused about why they were used at all. The whole effect is as if the author is either severely ADHD or smoking a controlled substance. Why bother? DELETED.

No cohesive storyline. No character development. The story jumps around so much and there are so many inconsistencies that are never addressed. I gave up at halfway because I couldn't it read anymore.

I quit. So far there is no point to this story. I can't stand Mia, and i think at this point I should have some idea what is going on.

Giving In to You by L.M. Carr is her debut novel and is the first book in her Giving trilogy. I was expecting quirky, steamy and quick. I was blown away by a plot that unravels slowly, a romance that will simultaneously break and mend you, and a cliffhanger that will leave you shaking a fist at the heavens screaming "Why?!?". Mia and Adam cross paths so many times that it truly does seem like fate is involved. Mia is a second grade teacher in a small town where everyone knows everyone AND their business. But it is home to her and she loves it. She has darkness in her past that slowly is revealed throughout the story. Adam is new to town. He is drawn to Mia despite her almost hostile behavior towards him. When he realizes she is the teacher to one of his children it opens up more opportunities to "encounter" Miss Delaney. There is a chemistry between these two that cannot be denied. Mia is sweet and caring AND tough and Adam is protective and willing to break his own rules for the sake of getting closer to Mia. This story is so much more than a romance. There is intrigue and danger and darkness weaved into the pages. I absolutely freaking loved it - right up until the To Be Continued notice as the 100% mark arrived too soon.

Did not like the non-ending. 'F' word was totaly unnecessary and added nothing to the story.

Great book with an interesting storyline. I hope Mia and Adam get their HEA. There are so many unanswered questions about this story, so I can't wait to read the next book in the series. Recommend this book even though there's a cliffhanger. Mjw

For this to be a debut novel this author did a wonderful job of bringing out characters, faults and all and blending them with the story. An interesting story over all with some nice blends of suspense and romance that isn't over the top. There is angst and yes there are issues and those that cause issues and there are 2 adorable kids involved as well. I like seeing where an author has come fro and how they have progressed as an author. While at the beginning stages she is more descriptive in her writing which isn't a bad thing merely an observation. I enjoyed the read and can't wait to finish the trilogy, oh yes there is a cliffhanger so you have been warned.
