Book Description

She’s trying to forget the pleasure in her ex’s arms
He’s doing his damnedest to remind her

Fledgling entrepreneur Samantha Riverà is in charge of her own life for the first time and determined to keep it that way. She’s attempting to banish her call-all-the-shots ex-husband from her dreams, but it’s kind of tough forgetting the Zorro look-alike who’s willing to do anything for her, except give her the only two things she wants—another baby and his love. When their 14-year-old daughter Dani—who’s maintaining a shaky remission from leukemia—rebels, Sam foolishly seeks advice from her Don Juan ex, who, incidentally, could charm the knickers off a nun.

When Nicolàs Riverà returns to Redemption, PA, to help control his defiant daughter, he discovers he not only has serious competition for Sam’s affection, but Dani has a crush on a boy who is the last kid Nick wants her interested in. The boy is a horn-dog rebel who reminds Nick way to much of his teen-aged self.

Sam never understood that, to a second-generation Latino man, familial responsibility is número uno. She also has no concept of how terrified this reformed bad-boy and businessman is of losing her to another high-risk pregnancy. The death of their premature son devastated Nick, and his refusal to sire another child incited The Great Bedroom War that ultimately destroyed his marriage. Now, he’ll stop at nothing to get his family back—even if it means blackmailing his way back into his ex-wife’s home to become a greater presence in his sick child’s life—and, with any luck, Samantha’s bed and heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hero After My Own Heart! July 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I was THRILLED to see another book by Laurie Kellogg! And equally thrilled to enjoy the read once again.

This time, Ms. Kellogg has her hero and heroine stuck in a Mars versus Venus situation, only with stakes that are MUCH higher than who holds the TV remote control. In The Great Bedroom War, the hero and heroine divorce because of an impasse in the bedroom involving TWO life and death situations. (I don't want to give too much away, but just know that the battle lines in their bedroom weren't drawn simply because they disagreed on its paint color.) Their journey to remarriage includes all the elements I've come to expect from Ms. Kellogg. It's funny, sexy, and -- most importantly -- incredibly touching.

Being female, I really related to Samantha, the heroine, and her challenges, but I absolutely LOVED Nick, the hero! Every woman should have a man love her as much as Nick loves Samantha. Communication definitely isn't his strongpoint, unfortunately, but that's very typical of some flesh-and-blood men, too, and it just makes Nick all the more realistic, and thus lovable, in my opinion.

Along with Nick and Samantha, The Great Bedroom War has a wonderful cast of characters that includes their teenage daughter and her friends, as well as Nick and Samantha's friends and neighbors, both old and new, including ANOTHER of Ms. Kellogg's fabulous heroes -- Jake Manion from A Little Bit Of Deja Vu. (I love revisiting old "friends.")

Despite its serious plot, The Great Bedroom War was a quick read with snappy dialogue, the perfect book for the beach or poolside. Laurie Kellogg's The Memory Of You still remains my favorite book from her Redemption series, but I enjoyed this one, too, and have already recommended it to many of my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gives a new meaning to "The Battle of the Sexes" July 26, 2012
By PJD
Format:Kindle Edition
When love is mutual but unexpressed, things can go VERY wrong. Nick shows his love, but circumstances cause Samantha to file his actions under Responsibility and Honor, setting the stage for a plot fraught with tension. Add a sick child, heartbreak, and a continent, and everything is in turmoil. Nick wants to protect Sam but, in doing so, convinces her he doesn't care. Sam wants to move on, but how can she when her heart cries for what might have been? Funny, sassy, and poignant in ways sure to touch you, augmented by the appearance of old friends from previous books, Laurie Kellogg has another winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Great Bedroom War--sometimes, love isn't enough July 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another wonderful read by Laurie Kellogg. "The Great Bedroom War" tells a heart-warming, often heart-wrenching story of Nick and Samantha, a couple who--while their love has endured fifteen years--their marriage hasn't. Unable to let go of each other, Nick and Sam are thrown back together thanks to the angst of their teen daughter and find the assumptions they've made about one another throughout their marriage were often times the wrong ones, even though they know each other quite well. In a nutshell, "The Great Bedroom War" tells a story where love may not conquer all, but being committed to that love, does.

I got this book as a freebie thru the bookbub app. After reading this book I'm glad I didn't pay anything for it. I was under the impression that it was going to be a great story based on all the 4/5 star reviews. I must have had blinders on because I had to force myself to finish the book in hopes it was going to get good.

The main character Sam starts off as an okay character, a little guarded and humorless, and somewhat one dimensional. Toward the end of the book I just felt all she was doing was crying poor me. It's safe to say if she were real we would not be friends.

The husband, who is CLEARLY a Latino man is nothing more than a typical guy...nothing special. I felt forced to swallow the almost constant feed of a cultural reminder that he's Latino and they all have pride for their family....except for his sperm donor to his mother. Ridiculous.

The scenes between these two are all primarily about poorly attempted sexual comments about his wiener, el captain. when they do finally come together it again feels forced, cold and boring. Nothing to light my fire by that's for sure....I'm not even talking sexual fire, more like a general 'aww how sweet is that' type of fire.

The daughter character seems like any other hormonal teen. Again nothing too special to make her her own character. She's just tossed to the side between all the other characters. There is one scene between Dani and her wanna-be boyfriend where they are talking about a homemade video of his recent gig.... the boyfriend says "Bethany uploaded the clip to several video hosting sites late last-night without telling me"...I actually snorted, not because it was funny, but because I have NEVER heard a teenager talk like this, I so badly want the conversation to sound realistic.

1.0 out of 5 stars *Yawnnn* July 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a great bore. I'm sorry to the author who probably spent a lot of time on this but there were too many story lines to follow. I lost track of who was pregnant with who's baby, who was getting married, divorced or dying. And I didn't find it at all steamy like the other chick lit books I read. It took me so long to read this book due to the unattraction I felt to the male character. I don't know if it's my taste in men or how annoying this character seemed. The whole premise of "latino pride", naming his male parts and the cheesey sexual innuendos just threw me off. There were no "moments" for me in this book- just torture. I think the only character I minded reading about was Sam and Nicks daughter Dani. I was interested in her illness and how she was going to progress.

If you want to read a book about a couple that gets divorced after 14 years of marriage due to horrible communication skills- go ahead. If you're looking for a book with steamy hot men and love scenes- go somewhere else.
