Liz Talley became an auto-buy right out of the gate. And he's just a secondary character. That's all Nellie Tucker wants from Jack Darby. Because she was almost thirty. Sure, their week in Las Vegas is wonderful, but Nellie has her real life to get back to. Nellie's light brown hair and quiet disposition contrasted sharply with Kate's wild, dark beauty. She pushed the cart through the romance section of the library toward the break room, swerving around blue-haired Mrs.
When have you ever taken center stage and what were the results? After all, a librarian from a small Texas community doesn't have a lot in common with a cool business guy like Jack. A picture of herself in a barely there dress gyrating next to Snoop Dogg popped into her mind. So if you are ever in Texas, definitely check out some lessons. And if you don't mind my saying, you might have better luck finding the good stuff if you would wear something a bit more youthful. Nellie choked back a laugh.
When Nellie returns home and Jack arrives in Oak Stand, I was braced for Small Town Cutesiness which, thank you very much! And who can resist a hero who moves cross-country to pursue a relationship with the right woman? So finally, one day you attend an audition. Will I trip and fall on my face? She gave a snort as she pushed past the Nonfiction section and headed toward the lone study room in the back. The smell of cigarettes permeated the place though smoking had been outlawed for several years. Oh, sure, I could wiggle my butt and shuffle around the floor, but only the drunk guys wearing toupees thought I was good this would be my family. Throw in a secondary character named Bubba, and you have all the makings for several hours of pure reading confection! So, show me your moves J Ah! Just one more thing to go wrong with this stupid trip.
Time to do something drastic. It seems she panics a bit, denies some more then manages to pull out a sexy finale. These people are fairly normal and I laughed at this comment just as smart as big city folks. Nellie wants some freedom and a change, but who isn't sure how far that change should or can go, considering her background in the small town in which she lives. A cute read, but at times I found myself frustrated with Nellie. A little dagger of hurt fishhooked her heart.
Just get your plane ticket. Because if I can bumble into publication with my two left feet, than anyone can. It was time to own it. She'd rather be comfortable than fashionable. And not only does he appear, but he seems intent on setting down roots— here.
I'm thinking sexy, hot and vampy. Score two for the juveniles. A harried voice answered on the second ring, though raucous laughter shot out from the earpiece so that Nellie couldn't hear the greeting. Then one day, I started writing a romantic suspense. I realize I'm reading this group out of publishing order, but Liz makes it very easy to love each couple no matter what order you read it in.
I found my voice with small town contemporary. And he's just a secondary character. She finally decides to take her friend up on her offer to show her a good time in Las Vegas one weekend after overhearing some high school girls mock her for her uptight and boring way of acting and dressing. I think you can all stretch the analogy there. Dawn acts very Big Sister: thumping Jack on the head for doing stupid things yet ready to defend him against anyone else who tries it.
The direction you thought you were heading moved you forward, but not as much as the new direction. I just want to do it. Nellie and Jack will grab you and not let go. Nellie and the population of Oak Stand are in for a whirlwind courtship. Marcie was just the sort of girl she remembered from her own days at Oak Stand High School. There's more to both these characters than meets the eye, and it's a pleasure watching their relationship fire up in Vegas, and again in Texas with complications when he follows her there.
Wait, they were talking about her! I danced to the tune of series contemporary for a few books. The airport bar was crowded, something that tended to happen when flights were weather-delayed. I adored her growing friendship with Bubba. Her mind took a picture—irritated blue eyes beneath slashing black brows, dark shaggy hair, and a sensual mouth boasting a fu.
