This is a Brenda Jackson classic at it's best, it has all the great elements of a good story - passion, romance, suspense, drama, family issues and great secondary characters. Lee Madaris is the epitome on a gentleman. He has the ability to spark fire to the flame just by entering into your presence. He was such an intriguing man in this story. He wrote the book on "courting" - WOW - he has the power to make you loose your mind with all the wonderful and special things he does to let you know that you are his only desire. He chose Carly and he let her know that she was the passionate woman that he desires for now and forever. Yes, it was lust at first site with these two but it was the passion they felt for one another that kept them intriguing through out the story. This is wonderful suspense love story that will keep you turning the pages until the last word is read. You will fall in love with the main characters. This is Mrs. Jackson 100th book and it is a very good one.
Carly wanted someone to love her but was willing to except passion in its place - at least that's what she thought. Being with Lee Madaris as a playmate will definitely make you get passion and love confused. While these two characters try to figure out one another and see if passion is enough, they discover that they really like each and don't mind figuring the rest out as it comes. Since this is a Madaris story you know it's not as simple as boy meets girl and fall in love - oh no, it had suspense that could only be solved by the Madaris' and their friends - and it didn't disappoint either.
If you know anything about a Brenda Jackson Madaris story you know it's going to have drama with twist and turns that involve handsome men coming to the rescue. It was no different in this one. I love the way Mrs. Jackson brought back all of the family members with various updates in their lives. A Madaris story wouldn't be the same without Mama Laverne with her match making schemes - well watch out - she's back.
I really enjoyed this story!!!!! This is Mrs. Jackson 100th book and she still has it to make you fall in love with her characters and her writing style. If you like romance stories that captures your heart and hold it, then this is the book for you. I am really looking forward to reading more of them. Very Entertaining Story!!
