Just read Fools Rush In!  Loved it!  It's more of a chicklit book than romance even though the publisher is Harlequin.  I was laughing and crying at the same time.  Just thought I'd share.  :)

I've read a couple of her books - and really liked both!

She just came out with a new book...Just One of the Guys is the title. I'm going to read it soon. I'll let you girls know what I think of it.

I LOVED Just One of the Guys!!! It's such a cute book, with great characters. I read the whole book in about 5 hours, which is very unusual for me. I just couldn't wait to see how it ended! I highly recommend it! I'll definitely be reading all her books now and looking forward to future books!

Mary, Beth Ciotta is the same way. Published by Harlequin, more like chick lit. Maybe they are expanding since they bought Red Dress Ink?

I have Just One of the Guys in my TBR pile so it's good to hear that you enjoyed it.  I agree that quite a few of the Harlequin books I've read lately have a Chic Lit feel.

See I have Fools Rush In on my tbr and I'm not really in a rush to get to it because while I liked the excerpt of Just One of the Guys that I read, I found that I couldn't really get into it. I was on page 75 and realized I still didn't really care about the protag. So I gave up on it. Hopefully I'll like FRI better though, I liked the writing, just not the characters overly much.
