fine romantic suspense 2 Feb. 2005
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Katherine Chapelle threatens business reporter Michelle Michaels of the Manhattan Business Journal with the destruction of her career for having an affair with her spouse CEO millionaire Stanford. Michelle denies anything beyond friendship insisting to her editor Larry Morgan that Stanford is old enough to be her grandfather. Larry feels ethics was broken and arranges for Michelle to be reassigned to a sister paper, the Detroit Herald. This may be a homecoming for Michelle, but it feels like a major step backwards.

Though innocent of any ethical lapses, Michelle understands image is critical to a journalist and so vows to not end up remotely in any situation that gives the wrong impression because her goal is to return to New York City. However, investigative reporter Wesley Abbott pressures Michelle to play with him. Though she wants too, Michelle refuses even as Wesley dangles and ultimately persuades her to work with him on a case of official corruption in the court system.

Though the investigation takes a while to gel into an intriguing corruption based legal procedural investigation, fans of romantic suspense will appreciate this fine contemporary novel. The match-up between the lead characters is terrific with a player and a burned victim battling attraction in different ways. Readers will say yes to Rene Laudat's quality romance.

Reon Laudat has written a powerful story sure to capture your heart. 23 Feb. 2007
By C. Dionne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Michelle works as a journalist for the Manhattan Business Journal in New York. Shejust finished putting the finishing touches on a major story about Stanford Chapelle, CEO of Luxor Enterprises. This story would make her career, and then she receives the phone call that questions her ethics and sends her life and career into a tailspin.

Wesley Abbott is a reporter for the Detroit Herald in Michigan. His brother, Patrick,serving time in a correction facility, and his parents are nagging him to take his niece, Kelly, on the four-hour trip to visit with Patrick. Wesley's twenty-seven years old and still has no interest in committing to any woman. He adores women, just hasn't found the right one yet.

Michelle's life is going down the tubes fast. Her friend, Courtney Banks, crashed her date and stole the man away. That's one friendship down the drain. The story she was working on is shelved because of false accusations. She's forced to take a leave of absence from her job in New York, return to her hometown of Detroit and take a job at the Herald in the features department. The only upside she can see is that she'll be able to spend more time with her family.Wesley is already late for work. He was cursing himself for spending the night with Brynn before he broke it off with her. He should have gone to bed alone since he knew he'd have a long workday ahead of him. Now he's rushing to make it to work before a scheduled phone interview. Discovering another car in the slot he paid good money to park in was not a good thing... until he sees the woman getting out of that car.

Reon Laudat has written a powerful story sure to capture your heart. IF YOU JUST SAY YES grabs a hold of you from the very first sentence and doesn't let go until the very end. The characters are so "real" you just want to reach out and hug them. I was even able to feel their emotions as I read through the pages.

Love Conquers All 9 April 2005
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Michele is a smart, sexy, sophisticated and career driven woman. Her life quickly turns into a daytime drama similar to her favorite If Tomorrow Never Comes, when accusations of unethical conduct surface in her reporting tactics for the Manhattan Business Journal. Michele transfers to a local paper in her hometown where the soap opera continues and the plot thickens.

Wesley Abbott is a ladies man in the purest sense of the term. He is smooth, suave and good looking. No woman has been able to hold and keep his attention for long. That is until a reporter from an associate paper walks into the newsroom where he works as investigative reporter. Wesley is taken aback by the confidence and sophistication that Michele exudes. A man accustomed to having his way, he pursues her until she relents.

There is corruption brewing in the court system and Wesley, being the investigative reporter that he is, sets out to expose the wrongdoings of court officials. Michele, missing the excitement of big story reporting, enlists herself in Wesley's cause and along the way uncovers a jaw-dropping conflict that could tear them apart.

IF YOU JUST SAY YES is a nicely written romance with a twist of mystery. Laudat gave Michele and Wesley the perfect balance of tension and sexual energy. The subplots gave the characters definition and tied together well to round out the storyline. I love a romance with a little something extra on the side.

Easy to say "YES" 2 Feb. 2005
By Sharon J. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Once again Ms. Laudat has taken me on a joy ride, this time in the front seat. This was a true romance, where the characters didn't play games, keeping their feelings right where they needed to be, out front and in the open.

I laughed, I teared up, but all in all, it was a feel good story, that left me wanting more.......can't wait from the next ride.......
