Driving Mr. Wrong Home
This story was great, but it didn't leave a lasting impression. I enjoyed the transformation that TJ had and Gabby's reaction to it. I even enjoyed the "big gesture" he did. Something about it just wasn't incredibly special. However, this story was when the "matchmaker" was introduced. He had quite a long name: St. Clair Charles Osgood Bonaparte - isn't that adorable?
"Life's a journey, TJ. Some of us just take the long road."
The Sheriff's Secret
I definitely enjoyed Dell's confidence in the beginning. It was quite endearing, especially the way Marney reacted to him.
"...he grinned his infuriating 'I-know-your're-attracted-to-me' grin."
One scene in this story reminded me of a personal experience I had, except it didn't end the same way as the characters... I love it, in a weird way, when a book reminds me of a personal experience, even though it seems they're always the unhappy memories.
"I didn't threaten you! I was teasing you. But now that I know you have no sense of humor I'll stop. You don't have to worry. I can be trusted."
I also enjoyed the liberty that the author took in writing the steamy scenes. I enjoyed the "soup" scenes ;) I also liked that this book had a clear conflict. It broke my heart when Dell reminded Marney of it.
Second time is definitely sweeter. I loved that Gideon, even after having his heart broken, was still brave enough to try again. He kept on pushing because what he felt was love. This story taught me that you don't give up on the person you love. You also make the necessary sacrifices for them. Mia had trust issues, but Gideon worked through it, no matter how hard it was at times.
Gideon: "I don't suppose I left any boxers behind?"
Mia: "Not that either I or Charlie has found."
Gideon: "Guess I'll go commando."
Something about going commando sounds sexy ;)
Love in the Shadows
Jenny was the lucky woman who inspired the recluse to come out of the cave.
I love reading about characters who are not shallow. Characters who can see the beauty behind an obvious flaw. Jenny was that person. She saw the beauty behind the injury, behind the scars, behind the shadows. Even when it was incredibly uncomfortable for her, she told the truth to make sure that Nick didn't get the wrong idea and beat himself up for it.
