Yes the book is a typical Diana Palmer story but it does have some interesting twists and introduces some new characters that you know will have a story. What I found interesting is that for once the girl isn't orphaned but still has parents around -- not parent of the year candidates by any means - I think she's trying to flesh out the story lines a little -
Enjoyed it for what I expected -- Don't know if it really qualifies as a keeper - though they both had baggage - I wasn't totally in love with either character. I think their relationship wasn't as fully developed as some of her others, since more of the story focused on all she had gone through and was going through still - it was interesting and a little different, but I needed them to connect more and grab my attention for it to be a true keeper.

IMO, Diana Palmer is getting repetitive. This is another story about a man who thinks he is to old for the 19 year old virgin. I think it is the same as in every book she has written in the long tall texan series. I enjoy them, but she needs to try something new.

After reading through another in the Long Tall Texans romance series, I cant tell if I should be angry at Diana Palmer for writing such a bad novel or angry at myself for wasting an hour reading it.

Plain Keely Walsh is in love with her friend Clarks brother, Boone Sinclair, a handsome rancher. As the book begins, Keely is 19 and Boone is 30. As the parent of a 17-year-old, I would drop-kick a 30-year-old man who came sniffing around my daughter. Are there really no other women closer to his age that he can date? Keely is a veterinary technician and she earns Boones gratitude when she realizes that his beloved dog is suffering from bloat. And while Boone might actually like Keely, he instead insults and demeans her. And Clark uses Keely as a decoy when trying to date a gold-digging slut named Nellie.

Keelys story is a Cinderella story of sorts: her mother is a crude, obnoxious alcoholic who is hiding a deep, dark secret from her daughter; her father is heavily in debt to a drug dealer who now wants to collect, but Keely and her mother have no money, her mother having spent or sold it all. A snake bite, of all things, sends Keely to Boones home for recuperation. Keelys only friends are Boones siblings, Clark and Winnie. What angered me so much is that when Boone proves himself a noble man, he admits that hed underestimated Keely. He owns up to insulting her after having been given bad information about her from her alcoholic mother (which then leads to the question of why you would take anything an alcoholic says seriously), but he never apologizes. At no time does he say, Keely, I messed up. I am really sorry for how I treated you. Please forgive me. Is that really so hard to do?

A young woman in her early 20s might not always stand up for herself. But Keelys attitude beggars belief: she allows everyone from her mother to Boone to Clark to her boss to insult her and walk all over her. What kind of man would be attracted to that? Is there something wrong with being smart, beautiful, and a hard worker and still crave the love and affection that comes with a committed relationship?
