I spent (2) days reading this novel and I almost completed the book in (1) day. Just when I got to a stopping point I kept reading to satisfy inquiring mind. The reason I did not give it 5-Stars because I truly felt that Shay was a little to "flaky" that she actually ticked me off the way she kept accepting Ric's apologizes. She was such a intelligent woman I really believe if she had listented to her gut feelings . . .it would have told her that Woody was the man, and all the man she needed in her life. Thank you

I have read all of Raynetta Manees' books, and I have to say that this is one of her best. I finished this book in 5 hours. I have to say that I was not dissappointed in the least. Eventhough at times I felt like giving Shay a good shake for putting up with Ric's bs. Raynetta keep up the good work. I can't wait to read her latest novel.

Format: Paperback
Shay and Wood, in the beginning it was a relationship blooming and nicely developing. Shay and Ric what a love battlefield. I enjoyed this book of fiction as it is. Some people really do fall for the drama that a mate will dish to them.
Shay, Wood and Ric were all in the same boat confused, they had issues. I must say this book was very entertaining it had it's flaws, but sometime what we think is love isn't and sometime we settle for less and do what we have to do. Shay was living through her romance writing and got stuck in the middle of it with Ric. Shay didn't know reality was until it hit her square in the face. Ric, on the other hand was doing what he knew was best for him. Woody, what can I say about him, just that I liked him. I didn't truly agree with his actions, however, he got what he wanted. It's always a great day to wake up and see reality for what it is for.

This book is really special. It was much more true to life than most romanance novels. The characters were all endearing, even the ones who were wrong-headed, because you couldn't help but empatize with them, as another reviewer has noted. I love Manees' work, and cant wait for the next one!
