This book was so much fun to read. It's a sizzling romantic comedy about a woman who's dog discovers an injured man in her backyard. He (Chase) is a cop that just escaped the bad guy, but who is also being framed as a bad guy. You know from page 1 who the bad guy really is, but its quite a mystery as to how they will prove it. Meanwhile, these two spend many days and hours confined together in her remote home near a lake, which creates a great deal of whitty dialog and steamy scenes as they go about trying to prove him innocent. There are a lot of secondary characters that were great. I really hope we see one or two spin off stories from this book, especially Jason's story. ;-) Fans of authors such as Rachel Gibson, (who like their stories funny but with depth to them), will love this book. This is NOT a fluff book or a book that is all about sex (which are becoming way too common!) This has a real strongly developed story that showcases a very interesting couple on the journey to falling in love. A yummy book, highly recommended!

OMG soooooooo boring. 3/4 is about sex, sexual yearning, sexual fantasies, and sex and sex. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind sex in romance novel, but this one is so saturated with sex that you forget what the story is about. I deleted from my Kindle before the end. I could not stomach this book.

If the lead character said "Jeepers!" one more time, I was ready to throw my kindle out the window. JHL's review is spot-on; all I'll add is that the author seems to try to inject some quirky minor characters, but they're so uni-dimensional that they just distract. Poorly developed characters are one of the best ways to kill a book--and the only characters who are well developed here are the main ones, who aren't even likable. It's worth the price (currently free), not the time investment.

I bought this book because the description said If I liked Janet Evanovich I'd like this book. NO! NO! NO! This is so far from Evanovich's writing style it might as well be in ancient Greek. Was it supposed to be funny? Did I miss that? The skeleton premise was used to hang page after page of what I call women's porn and what is now labeled as romance. Why not just come out and say lots of sex and barely there plot?

Take one sexually-frustrated, slightly kooky photographer dressing up her pets for a Christmas photo shoot (in February), add one injured, wrongly-accused, and ever-so-hunky cop-on-the-lam who takes her hostage, and throw in a bevy of wacky secondary characters, and you have Christie Craig's delightful DIVORCED, DESPERATE, AND DELICIOUS. This was a fun, fast-paced "cabin romance" with a bit of intrigue and a Texas-sized dollop of sexy humor.

Highly recommended.

I bought this book because the reviews were so universally positive. While I can accept that different people find different things funny, I was hugely disapppointed in it. The set-up for the story is certainly kooky - pet photographer meets cop hiding from his partner-turned-murderer - but the characters are fundamentally unamusing. Both lead characters are tortured by events in the past - a cheating husband, and a fiancee killed in a police incident. They constantly dwell on their unhappiness, and there's no evidence that they have any fun with each other except when they're having sex. They don't tease each other, they don't have clever (or much of any) conversation, they don't do anything interesting except try to get the cop's name cleared. The "humor" comes mostly from secondary characters who keep dropping by to harangue the female lead about sex. If you think sex is funny just because it's sex, then I guess you'll be amused by all this, but I was bored, and I thought it was all pretty stupid.

Detective Chase Kelly is not having a good day. A veteran cop on the force is dirty and Chase found out. He was left for dead, well trying to escape, as he was shot and jumped off a bridge into the lake down below. Plus, it is February and not the perfect weather for a swim.
Chase is found by a sexy woman wearing a huge pink shirt with "Divorced, Desperate and Delicious" on the front, and nothing else. He comes to the conclusion that he will hide out in her place and pulls a gun on her to make her see reason. But what Chase is in store for will make for an interesting few days as he hides out.
Lady Maguire is a photographer who is trying to take come holiday pictures for next year with her motley crew of cats and dogs. She has no sex life to speak of and her ex-husband likes to come around once a year for no strings attached sex. Lacy is fed up, but scared to take the plunge with another man. Her mother has been married six times and intimacy scares her because she doesn't think she is good at it. But then when Chase shows up and forces her to help him, she knows her days with only her animals for company are over.
Both Chase and Lacy are together in very close quarters. Chase wouldn't mind spending the next few days getting to know Lacy both in and out of her bedroom. And even though Lacy finds Chase to be very attractive, her own issues stop her from going to distance with him. Plus, with her mother and loopy girlfriends stopping by along with Zeke, the dirty cop on the loose looking for Chase, these two hardly have a moment for themselves! And don't forget Lacy's ex-husband who still thinks Lacy is open for him to come back into her life whenever she wants.
Christie Craig has written an unbelievable story that can only be pulled off in a comedic romance.
