Tempted Again by Cathie Linz
Contemporary Romance - Jan. 3rd, 2012
4 1/2 Stars

Tempted Again is the story of Marissa Bennett who after her recent divorce returns to her hometown of Hopeful, Ohio to recover and get back on her feet. As the new Librarian in town she's hoping for a calm and peaceful time to deal with her life. Unfortunately, that isn't entirely possible when immediately upon arriving in town she meets up with the town named, Sheriff Connor Doyle who just so happens to have been her first love and the man she lost her virginity to all those years ago!

The story is chocked full of fun and amusing situations as Marissa and Connor are constantly being forced to spend time with each other and deal not only with their past but their current feelings and attraction to each other. Marissa and Connor are great main characters to read about. Both have issues from their pasts as well as personal issues to resolve and deal with. There are also a great mix of fun and interesting characters in the town of Hopeful In the form of family and friends who try to support and help Marissa and Connor but who add piles of humor and amusement to their situations.

I really enjoyed this book and found it to be a very lighthearted and amusing story. If you are looking for a fun story with great characters this is the book to read!

A Librarian Would Never Approve 21 Feb. 2012
By Deborah Kay Griggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Cathie Linz is one of the few romance authors that I read. She tends to be playful and amusing with heart, and her books provide me with the escape I'm looking for.

Although the characters and plot line were in line with her past work, two things completely ruined it for me. First, the editing of the text was reprehensible! Missed words, wrong words, and punctuation where it shouldn't be made this book almost unreadable. Instead of an escape, I wanted to grab a red pen.

The other aspect involved the first adult romantic encounter of the characters. Per usual, the romantic interests are attracted to one another, there's a misunderstanding/conflict, they hook up, deal with their feelings and live happily ever after. In Tempted Again, Connor and Marissa are in the bedroom, when she puts a halt to it because she's not emotionally ready for it. The treatment of this decision...a brave and healthy decision...was treated with utter contempt. Marissa had to apologize profusely, and Connor, who had put up with so much until this point, considered it the last straw. Because a woman said "No"?? We need to teach women to honor their bodies, honor their own will over their bodies, and this scenario, as it was treated, was offensive.

delightful! 30 July 2012
By Jill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Between economics and politics, everything seems so DIRE these days. It's wonderful to be able to pick up a book and just 'immerse' in a world with fun characters and spanking-fresh dialogue and true-life humor. I love Linz when she does a librarian story--who could know about librarians better than Linz?! Her librarians always tear away the traditional stereotypes--just like her female characters always are like Real Life real. Not perfect. Not always brave. Sometimes so girly-girly they drive their heroes a tad crazy... but what good would a hero be if he didn't like the estrogen in his girl? !! So she gets to scream at spiders and have occasional unreasoning moments....she also gets to take on causes no one else can deal with, from lost kids to lawmen who have taken forever to figure out what they want and need....
I never miss a Linz book. Highly recommend!

lighthearted second chance at love Buckeye romance 3 Jan. 2012
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Over a decade ago Marissa Bennett left Hopeful, Ohio to attend Ohio State rather than the hometown Midwest College where her dad is a history professor. Following a nasty divorce and the loss of her job, Marissa heeds her manta to find shelter when things go wrong. Shelter has always been Hopeful so in need of R&R, she returns home as the librarian.

However, she receives quite a home greeting when she drives her rusty VW Bug in the Founders Day Parade. Former Chicago cop and current town Sheriff Connor Doyle-walks up to her vehicle and turns off her car. She recognizes the man who took her virginity when they were teens, but he fails to realize who the New York license identifies as Marissa Johnson is until her mom lectures him. Her hope for a bit of home haven is shattered as she is Tempted Again to make it with the bad boy but she fears her broken heart will never mend; he knows he wants a second time with her too.

This is a lighthearted second chance at love Buckeye romance. The townsfolk enhance the warm thin storyline by bringing alive Hopeful. However, this engaging frolic belongs to the lead couple as both are Tempted Again, but he must convince her that he has matured since they worked side by side at the pizza parlor.

Stop Name Dropping 17 Jan. 2012
By NoFNPaNts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I used to really like Cathie Linz but I got diverted by other authors. However, when I read the synopsis to this book, I decided to reintroduce myself to her. I really want to like this book but I kept getting distracted by all the difference pop culture references. It was almost like she was trying to prove the point that she was aware and up to date with recent times. What bothered me more, was that in a few years this book won't be relevant, due to all of her ridiculous references. And that is a shame because she handled Marissa's feelings over the divorce and her mother's menopausal ups and down very well. I wasn't too crazy about her and Connor's interactions all the time but for the most part it was competent. To me, this book had a lot of potential but it definitely fell short. Hopefully her next book with be better, I just won't be buying it.
