One of Gibson's better books. Poor girl is saved, gets pregnant, gets dumped by guy fighting his own demons- they meet up years later when she has made a success of herself. There are a few obstacles here they each overcome which makes them stronger as characters. This helps to make the novel very likeable.

I enjoyed this book in spite of its flaws. The runaway bride plot is more than a little tired and cliche, but the characters were strong enough to pull me through that. The flaw that was more difficult to overcome, for me anyway, was the complete reversal of the heroine's speech patterns when the story made a 7 year jump. It felt to me as though the author just got tired of writing the character's speech the way she'd introduced it, so she just dropped it, hoping the reader would see that as part of a maturation process. I didn't and I don't, but I gritted my teeth and accepted it. I also felt that the issue of the heroine being dyslectic wasn't "paid off" as it should have been. The emphasis it got at the beginning of the story made it deserve more than the shrug off it got later. Had these issue been handled more effectively, I wouldn't have been bounced out of the story as often as I was. It was only the strength of the characters that got me to finish the story at all.

2nd Rachel Gibson book I've read and I loved it. While the cover looks like the book is mostly fluffy romance it is deceiving. Yes the story is pretty much the same formula for a romannce novel but Gibson is funny, sexy and serious. Really enjoyed this book as much as I did the first one I read. I'm looking forward to reading more of her work. Carol

I enjoyed the first book of this series.

Series romance is not reality TV...they're supposed to transport you to a fanciful scenario that's different from your everyday routine. This book did it well for me and was often laugh-out-loud funny, which I love in a book!

This is one of those "kick your shoes off and live someone else's life for a few hours" books, and I found it great fun.

I really like Rachel Gibson as a writer, this book was good but not as good as some of her other books. I look forward to reading more of her books.
