## Meh, not great. 2 stars was all I could manage. I enjoyed Gracie's story which I accidentally read out of order, but this one...not so much. First of all, there wasn't all that much to like about this hero. He was incredibly moody. Hot, cold, hot again. During their first sex scene the heroine says "no" about something she doesn't like several times and even pushes him away and tells him that he's ruining the experience for her. But instead of letting her go (because he knows her body doesn't lie) he holds her tighter and laughs in her face. Say what? Not bloody likely. That on its own was bad enough. However, when he said he had zero compunction about sleeping with married women (several in fact), he lost all my respect. There was just too much turmoil and arguing in this relationship (mostly on the hero's part). There need to be some redeeming qualities and some happy times for them to fall for each other. Instead of this book, I recommend Shane and Gracie's stories. However, I won't be buying Evan's story because in the sample the heroine walks in on the hero having sex with another woman and I just can't stomach that.

Hot but not so overwhelming that it took away from the plot line

Ever heard the saying “like nails on a chalkboard?” Therein lies the problem with this book. It was steamy, sexy, romantic and even funny, BUT the overuse of the “f” word and the bad clichés nearly killed what could have been a good story. Three times I counted the phrase “like nails on a chalkboard,” and it wasn’t because one character overused the phrase. It was because the author did. She also used the phrase “hit her like a ton of bricks.” Then there were the stereotypes. The most overbearing was the good Catholic girl gone wrong. This characteristic of the main character, Maddie, was repeated so often and in so many different ways that I wanted to yell, “Uncle! I get it already!” I actually liked the plot and the characters for the most part, but the writing was indeed “like nails on a chalkboard.” Granted, I was reading an uncorrected proof, so the end product may be somewhat better. I sure hope so. In accordance with FTC guidelines, please note that I received a free advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review.

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 1/4 REVIEW:  I really enjoyed this book. I loved the beginning, nothing sets a scene like a runaway bride, who has sore feet, a dirty ripped up dress and needing a drink badly walking into a bar. I really enjoyed Maddie, except the references about how much she was sinning. At that point she had not done anything wrong. Mitch is just yummy. I love that he keeps Maddie on her toes, that he knows when to push her and when to pull back (well most of the time).  These two are just so cute together. They both would have never thought that the thing they need to help them heal would come in the form of a broken down care and a determined runaway bride who wants a drink.  I can’t wait to see where this series goes. Maddie has 3 brothers that I think will need some very amazing women to wrangle them in. Disclaimer:  I received a complimentary copy of the book from NetGalley & Kensington Books (Zebra) in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

I enjoyed this book, looking foward to the second in the series to come out. Sex scenes were a bit overdone for the good girl to go that bad so fast but I was brought into the story line quickly.
