B.E. love - thanks for the scoop (Across the Hall) on Beau. There's something not right there and I expect him to really twist off bad at any moment. Edge of my seat on this one to see how all is resolved.

Gonna check out Take This Regret.

Ok definitely reading Take this Regret and Pulled next.

I think there should definitely be a category for these type bks just not sure what I'd call it? I'm calling it romantic drama for now. Anybody else got a better name for these and others...Like Beautiful Disaster, Unwritten Rules, etc.?

@B.E. love
Yes.
I must admit that if I had known before how the story would have unfold I'd not have read it.....a plot device I hate....but at the end I'm satisfied I read it...so many tears I shed.....

I hate when the hero and heroine are about to meet again and when they could be together after years apart he has gotten another woman pregnant ....I hate when this happens not in the past years before the re-meeting but just a couple of months before and so they had to deal with this....I hate this bad bad timing....my personal opinion...
Above all if the heroine can't get pregnant herself and the OW's pregnancy is just an expedient to give them a child I'd rather they adopted or stay childless.
Poor heroine!
Even if the hero didn't love the OW and the relationship happens before he meets again the heroine ( so there's no cheating) I still don't like this plot device when the timing is so grrrrrr.

The OW has the baby and then she leaves the hospital after the birth without a second glance. She hoped to create a family with the hero but he loved, always, the heroine. She used the pregnancy in hope to trap him but it never worked like she hoped. At the end the heroine, who at the beginning feared she'd not have accepted the baby, is the boy's mum in every sense but biologically.
She didin't have a miracle pregnancy at the end and loves the boy so much....and he'll be their only child....he has a son, she has a child to love as her own and she does, and all are happy....
But....my liking the book has been ruined a bit by this pregnancy part. I see this unecessary.
This made me shed angry, sad tears....

Someone reading my comments could think I didn't like the book...well, the fact I don't like some plot devices and consequently how the story goes on doesn't make me blind about the excellent writing....and if I cried..well, not many books are able to move me in a way or another.

Thanks for all the info. Not sure that I will read it now but I'm glad I know this before I read it I would have been mad. Sound alot like books I used to read we're there's alot of sadness in the book.

You people are costing me money! Got Across the Hall, I LOVE crazy stalker types.

Posted on Nov 8, 2011 6:00:41 PM PST
I just finished Across the Hall and am not a fan :(. I think the sex scenes were raunchy-there seemed to be zero romance. I also thought Sylvia was whiny and couldn't understand why her friends like her so much!

That is just my opinion, I know that other people love it. It just wasn't my favorite.

I'm half-way through Sweet Dreams and boy oh boy - this is the closest to BD's Travis that I've seen yet. Tate is a biker (and bounty hunter) who owns/works in a bar in a biker town (Carnal) with a LOT of baggage. Lauren is a wounded newly divorced suburbanite who decides she wants to start a new life there and she is waaaaay out of her element. But she is really genuine & can stand up for herself when she has to. Tate is rough around the edges and he and Lauren do not get off to a good start, but he's got her back when she gets herself into some interesting situations (due to her ignorance of "biker talk"). Also, he's totally amazing when she is confronted with a family crisis. He's the epitomy of possessive & protective. There's also enough humor (their conversations are very funny, as she doesn't understand biker slang and he speaks in monosyllables) to balance out the drama - which thankfully, she doesn't cause (unlike Abby). The only bummer is some editing mistakes, but it hasn't kept me from thoroughly enjoying their story.

Thank you for the rec! There is a $9.99 book I just can't pull the trigger on - I'd rather get two $3 or $4.99 books. I LOVED BD and Travis and of course am searching for more like those. This one sounds like it will fit the bill.

Edit: I'm 9% in and I LOVE it! Just what I needed. A heroine who is smart and relateable - I just adore her. And Tate is awesome. So glad I bought this book. I needed cheering up after reading both Fifty Shades - I can see the appeal of the books but they are sort of a downer. This one is more like BD, only much more positive. I highly recommend it.

Lily Rose 81 - I'd be happy to lend it to you once I've finished - unless someone else can get it to you sooner. :)

Reader - I just wanted to know how Black Butterfly by Sienna Mynx compares to BD and Thoughtless and if its characters are the same age group as BD and Thoughtless
Thanks

Beeg Panda: I'm not Reader, but I've read both Black Butterfly and BD. The characters are older in Black Butterfly -- heroine (23 or 24) and hero (27). The hero is a genius in the financial market and he's already a millionaire. I felt like there was something lacking in his personality though. He came off a little too one-dimensional and I didn't really get him. The h and H just didn't seem to click. He was definitely a man whore like Travis though until he met the h. He cried when she wanted to leave him, but it seemed so out of character for him.

Beeg Panda says:
Lulu - thats such a disappointment! Im goiung nuts looking for Travis in every book. Why does she want to leave him though?
Someone suggested this on blog - in "what to read after BD" - ANNE CALHOUN - LIBERATING LACEY - have you read it? Does it measure up? LOL @ myself but I have it already - just need spoilers before I read it
