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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
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!

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?

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.

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.

Sorry - very little substance here. Had to literally skim all the pages (and there were quite a few) with the sex scenes. Sure sex is a wonderful gift created by God but good grief how many unoriginal scenes can one write? Authors need to find a way to tease their audience and yet leave some things to their reader's imagination. They shuould also try to spend more time on their storyline and trust that their readers can find enough excitement on their own or with their partner.

ADDITIONAL NOTE(SPOILER ALERT!): This book is too similar to another book from this same author - Divorced, Desperate and Dating. Cop, attractive woman, mystery to solve, cop ends up living in woman's house, they have sex a few times, woman doubts cop loves her...Need I go on? I had actually given that book a good review. But a couple years and scores of books on my Kindle later, I am being a lot more picky with how I dish out my stars.

I had to stop reading about half way though. Terrible. Not even slightly believable. Who under the age of 80 says things like "Oh jeepers!"? No one. I realize it's free, but honestly, not even worth your time people. Trust me.
