Product Description

Review

"When it comes to delivering sexy and sensual romance, author Lori Foster is in a class by herself."

Product Description

"A Lori Foster book is like a glass of good champagne--sexy and sparkling!" --Jayne Ann Krentz

You first met Bruce Kelly in Lori Foster's steamy novel, The Secret Life of Bryan. Now, Bruce comes into his own--and a whole lot of trouble--when he falls for a woman who is nothing like he is, but she's everything he wants. . .

When Opposites Attract. . .

Bruce Kelly has spent most of his life helping people who are down on their luck, guiding them toward making better lives. Compassionate and kind, Bruce understands that everyone makes mistakes, even if he's never actually done anything but color inside the lines. Nobody's perfect, but Bruce is about to meet a woman who's perfect for him. He's determined to show her that he can be trusted. And if that means proving it by being the absolute gentleman at all times, then so be it. No matter how many cold showers it takes. . .

. . .Just Get Out Of The Way

Cyn Potter is a survivor, with a sassy, gallows wit and a fierce independent streak to show for it. She's used to men wanting only one thing, and this girl is no longer taking applications from big bad wolves in sheep's clothing, thank you very much, drive through please and keep on going. But Bruce Kelly is actually different. Totally hands off. Sometimes she can see a hint of fire when he looks at her, but the guy treats her with the respect she's always wanted. Maybe too much respect, because truthfully? The guy is fine. Worth taking down a few defenses for. . .and a few other things. And maybe somebody needs to help Bruce start over and discover just how perfect being imperfect can be. . .

4.0 out of 5 stars Visitation Reigns Supreme! 30 Aug. 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I must admit to being a fan of the Visitation series that started with Say No To Joe? and concluded with Jamie. I didn't read them in order the first time round but have now made amends and added this to my book collection!

This book is about Bruce who is a preacher that settles in Visitation to be nearer to his twin brother Bryan (the bounty hunter - but that's a different story!). While travelling he meets up with Cynthia (Cyn) and his do-gooder instincts aren't the only things aroused.

This is a very unusual book as the heroine is a prostitute. I was rather shocked at first but the background and subsequent information that we are given does a good job of rationalising this and in Bruce we do have a very understanding hero. That's not to say that Bruce is a doormat - he comes across as empathic rather than pathetic! It helps that Cyn is so young and has already left that part of her past behind.

I really enjoyed this - the dialogue was often snappy and the confusion over Cyn meeting the wrong twin is quite good too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not her best 12 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like Lori Foster and have enjoyed the visitation series but I struggled with this one. I think it's because of how Cyn was written or more specifically how other women reacted to her. I find the notion that women are automatically bitchy to pretty women outdated and chauvinistic. It's a shame because up until that point I had liked Cyn as a lead. Read the others in the series though

4.0 out of 5 stars You're In For A Treat!!! 27 July 2004
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
At first I was not sure I was going to like this book. Why you ask after all it's Lori? Truth was I was not sure I was going to be able see Cynthia and Bruce together but...I had nothing to fear. Ms. Foster managed to make be believe that these two very, very different people were able to fall in love.

As stated by a previous reviewer Ms. Foster's trademark sesuality was toned down a bit. Cyn is an ex-prostitute and Bruce is a preacher. Cyn has come from a very abusive life and Bruce is just the man to help her make a new life for herself. Ms. Foster was true to her character's and this has been my favorite out of the series so far.

We get to see Joe and Luna as well as Shay and Bryan again when we visit Visitation. Jamie Creed is also very much active in this story and as a result this was a great page turner that I took on the road with me to Poland. I highly recommend Ms. Foster. You will never be let down by this author and I look forward to the next in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars an amazing story of survival and healing, against all odds. 9 Sept. 2005
By Donna K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Based on my (admittedly limited) previous experience with Lori Foster's books, I was expecting another light-hearted and funny basic chick-lit story. Wow - did this book deliver so much more than that, with a deep story of substance!

Cyn admirably escapes a childhood of neglect and abuse by running away at age 17. She survives the next five years supporting herself the only way she knows how - by selling her body. With fierce determination, she saves enough money within 5 years to move to small-town North Carolina and reinvent herself, find an honest job, become a productive member of society, make friends and fall in love with the town's understanding and nonjudgmental preacher. Her relationship with Bruce is threatened because it's difficult for her to trust any man, and she feels unworthy of the love of a good man. Cyn's abuser eventually catches up with her, and starts stalkin, threatening and tormenting her. With the love and support of Bruce, and the protection of the entire community, including a mysterious clairvoyant character, Cyn finally finds safety and much deserved happiness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner from Foster 27 Aug. 2004
By Emma - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Generally, I've never read a Lori Foster book I didn't like, some are better than others but they all have a great spark between the couples and Bruce and Cyn are no different.

Cyn is a woman running from a tragic secret who's decided to give up her life as a hooker and head to Visitation to start her new, clean life.

She meets Bruce (who we meet in Secret Life of Brian), a preacher who saves her from an altercation with an angry trucker.

Immediately there are sparks but what makes this book so wonderful is that instead of rushing into the sexy heat that Foster does so well, the chemistry builds slowly, both because Bruce is a preacher and because he respects and understands that Cyn's past dictates that he take things slow with her.

The drama was good, we saw all of the great citizens of Visitation again and Foster delivers a story that is sexy and funny and sweet.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sweet, Sexy story! Loved It! 6 July 2004
By Stacy ~ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Cyn Potter is an ex-hooker who's looking to better her life. What better place than Visitation, the place that calls to her in her dreams?
Bruce Kelly, on his way back to Visitation, is a preacher who loves to help others, and when he sees Cyn Potter being treated roughly by a truck driver at a truck stop, his protective instincts kick in.
Once the matter is resolved, Cyn reluctantly agrees to accompany Bruce on his way home. She's confused by his honorable intentions, having never been treated well by men, and he's smitten with the spirited young woman who's determined to make it on her own.
As they get to know each other, it becomes obvious to everyone but them how perfect they really are for each other. Cyn doesn't think she deserves such goodness in her life, and Bruce is afraid to take advantage of her, as she'd been so many times in her young life. But their attraction is overwhelming, and hints at the love that can bring them the happiness they both deserve.
However Cyn's past is catching up with her, and with a firm warning from the mysterious Jamie Creed, Cyn knows she must face it before she can truly get past it. Only now she doesn't have to do it alone.
Fans will adore Bruce & Cyn, who bring tears to your eyes with their sweet, sexy romance, and enjoy revisiting the citizens of Visitation while longing for Jamie's own story. Another winner from the wonderful Lori Foster!

1.0 out of 5 stars Facile, unrealistic, silly. 31 Oct. 2004
By SKTCA - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm astonished that so many people love this book, although maybe if I'd known less about child abuse and prostitution, I would have enjoyed it, too. I generally find Lori Foster's books entertaining. But the whole hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold-and-remarkable-self-esteem motif is not only trite and unrealistic, it's passe. I think romance novels (especially the short ones like this) are precisely the wrong place to deal with such complex issues as a primary plot. It's hard enough to do in a work of dramatic fiction. And in the many years I've been reading this genre, I have never seen an author get it right. Either she glosses over the whole thing, as here, or attempts a more realistic portrayal which saps the romance right out of the story.

The first book about Bruce and Bryan wasn't quite as bad as this one, because the prostitutes were secondary characters, and Foster didn't delve into their psyches. But I can't tell you how many times I put this book down in horror (and even amusement) at the pop-psychology psychobabble that proxied for actual recovery. Please! The premise of even the most fantastic story needs to be believable on a fundamental level. For example (and I'm nitpicking here), this supposedly gorgeous girl starts hooking at age 17, gets effortlessly out of the game at around 22. In 5 years she has never gotten into any trouble (ie. never run afoul of a pimp), has managed to remain relatively nonchalant and well-adjusted, and--get this--has only saved about $2,000 in 5 years!! Supposedly, she was only hooking in the first place to save money, and it's not as if she were living in a city with a high cost of living. She must be the cheapest hooker in the world--which would make her clientele rather--e[...] She may as well have taken a respectable job as a waitress! All things being equal, she could have saved just as much in half the time.

Yet all this I could have overlooked, if I'd been engaged by the characters. But I wasn't. Plus, I didn't buy her relationship with Bruce. With all the amazing women around Bruce, this was the best he could do? Bruce's attraction to her seems rather...unsavory. Hey, I'm sure relationships like this happen, but that doesn't make them good reading. I guess the author wanted to write a hooker/holy man tale. But, while such a story might be more plausible in an old Western tale, it doesn't fly in contemporary romance. Not for me.

PS--I'm not a moralist, and I don't hate prostitutes. I just hated this book.
