Amazon.com Review

Delaney Shaw plans to get in and out of her hometown in the time it takes to attend her stepfather Henry's funeral, read the will, and refill the tank of her Miata. Even the pleas of her mother and the tension of an unfinished fling with Henry's bastard son, Nick Allegrezza, can't keep her in Truly, Idaho. But Henry had other plans in mind: Nick and Delaney's inheritance is contingent on her staying in Truly for a year, and him having no "sexual relationship" with Delaney. What's a girl to do? Delaney digs in, starts up a hair salon and prepares to grit her teeth for as long as it takes.

Small-town life is everything that Delaney fears it to be: high school rivalries and old rumors about Delaney and Nick resurrect themselves with predictable immediacy. Gossip nears the truth as the sexual sparks fly between Nick and Delaney. Nick's reputation as a ladies man hasn't changed, either, and Delaney reminds herself that he can love her and leave her just as brutally as he did 10 years ago. But when the two find themselves in close proximity, all their best intentions fly out the window and intense passion consumes them.

Truly Madly Yours has the same originality and sauciness that made Rachel Gibson's first work, Simply Irresistible, popular with readers. While each page brings a new take on the familiar "black sheep, old flame" plot, the main characters are at times a bit unappealing. Delaney's unqualified disgust for Truly becomes a tired mantra and no amount of biker jackets and muttered "wild things" can neutralize Nick's anachronistic womanizing. Gibson wisely focuses her attention on clever dialogue and original situations, and the overall result is a delightful and completely entertaining read. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien

Nick Allegrezza has got to be one of the sexiest guys I've ever read! He's drop-dead gorgeous (I've never come across a Basque hero before), incredibly sexy, and thoroughly infuriating. But more than just handsome and sexy, he's complicated too. He was the bane of Delaney's childhood, throwing snowballs at her and teasing her unmercifully, but did he flatten the tires on her bike to be mean or so that he could walk her home? Hmmm, true feelings and motivations can be so murky!
Delaney Shaw left Truly, Idaho at 18 and never looked back. She's been a nomad moving from place to place and job to job until she's forced to return to attend her controlling stepfather's funeral. In a last power play, his will stipulates that in order to claim her inheritance of three million dollars, she must stay in Truly for a full year! There go her plans to leave ASAP. Now if she can just avoid her nemesis, Nick for the next twelve months . . . Nick, who was Henry Shaw's unacknowledged illegitimate son, also has a stipulation to his inheritance. He will lose the lucrative property Henry left him if he becomes sexually involved with Delaney within that same year! Shouldn't be a problem, right? He's not interested in Delaney - is he?
But avoiding each other in a small town like Truly, especially when Delaney's best friend Lisa is engaged to Nick's brother Louie, and when the hair salon she opens in town is just doors away from the offices of Allegrezza Construction proves quite difficult. And as they have more and more steamy encounters we learn more about their tangled, complicated past - especially their night at Angel Beach when they were caught by Henry in a compromising situation. The repercussions from that night drove Delaney to leave town and continue to haunt both of them.

I recently read this book after a friend recommended "Simply Irresistible". I enjoyed this book more. I found the story very realistic. Who hasn't had a secret crush. The fantasy part is actually getting to fulfill your crush. I enjoyed the fact that Delany wasn't a blonde bombshell who didn't know she was beautiful. She was a real woman who had to work at being not ugly. And I especially liked that Nick was attracted to her even with 'bedhead'.
I thought the broomcloset sex scene was HOT. I have reread this book twice. And, it keeps getting better.
Sometimes soulmates can be opposites. Initial attraction isn't enough to live HEA, as one reviewer called it. But, it's what develops from that attraction that sustains this love/lust relationship.

I heavily rely on recommendation to choose my reading material. I cannot believe how much positive feedback that this book received had I know what a jerk the H was and how spineless the h would be I wouldn't have bothered with this book. Different strokes and all that I guess...

I have read books where the H is an alpha male or a bad boy or a rebel and I still felt a connection between him and the h. One never feels like a true love connection ever developed between the h and the H in this book. The H just came across as mean and although he owns his rudeness and dismissive behavior, he never really seems that remorseful. He sets out time and time again to purposely hurt the h and yet somehow that is supposed to be romantic. IMO, the bad boy persona only works when the H falls entirely for the h exposing a side of him that would be otherwise hidden from everyone else. He might hurt the h due to circumstances or by mistake but never purposely as this H does time and again. Despite the fact that the author definitely got the brooding H, she failed to develop a tender side of him that I wanted to fall in love with. New locks and snow tires did not outweigh his deliberate callous actions. It did not make me feel any better that this H was equally degrading to all the female characters he had sex with, not just the h.

I hate these kinds of H and hate books with h that put up with that kind of treatment even more. ***SPOILER*** After 368 pages of the H treating the h poorly, including the H inviting the h to join a threesome after she walked in on him almost cheating on her, there is 5 pages of a sorry and a HEA. THAT IS NOT an exaggeration, 5 pages, I counted!

I usually really enjoy Rachel Gibson's books. They have engaging characters and lots of humor. Not this one. I really did not like Nick. Yep, he had some crappy stuff happen as a kid and I totally understood why he never wanted to make amends with Henry but his complete disrespect for women including Delaney was just too strong. Maybe if it had only been for half the book and then he reformed but 95% of the book was him being an A** and then a quick oh I'm sorry at the end was supposed to make it all okay? Not for me.

This book centered around Delaney who left Truly, Idaho at 18 and never looked back. She left behind her controlling step father and a mother who wanted to change almost everything about her. She's been roaming from place to place until her step-father dies and she returns for his funeral. In a last ditch effort to control her, she has to stay in Truly for one year in order to gain her half of the inheritance which is 3 million dollars. Delaney wants nothing more than to be free but with that kind of money she can open her own salon. Nick is the illegitimate son of Henry and he was never acknowledged until Henry found out he was dying and realized with no legitimate children his legacy wouldn't continue. Nick is left two very expensive pieces of property and all he has to do is not engage in a sexual relationship with Delaney for one year. This wouldn't be a problem, except Delaney is the one woman Nick has always secretly been attracted to.

I enjoy bad boy or rebel hero in a lot of books but not if they spend almost the entire book purposely hurting the heroine.
