While the story was fairly good I have never read anything with quite such a dislikable female lead character! I waited throughout the book for her to show just one redeeming quality, unfortunately I was disappointed!

HASH(0x973df81c) out of 5 stars Really got me fuming 24 April 2013
By Gatorfan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is really different. I loved her hero, he was a typical bad-boy (justified) He comes from a very bad family and everything that can goes wrong does. He finally turns his life around and tries to do good by everyone. He falls for the town's rich girl. She is selfish, self-centered, spoiled, stupid and a bitch. Up to this point, I was doing okay with the story.

Then his ex-wife shows up on his doorstep 9 months pregnant and addicted to everything there is. He takes her in, pays her hospital bills, buys her clothes, puts his life on hold and the baby is born. Now he is stuck with a big medical bill, his ex and her baby by some guy she was living with who, by the way, threw her out.

Then he starts making some headway with the rich girl but she wants him to quit trying to save the world and get on with his life. So, he wakes up one morning and the ex has let town, left the baby, and stole his suped up street rod. DOES he call the police and turn her in for abandonding the baby and stealing his car??? NO, he lets her get away with it. SAP at this point.

He keeps the baby and starts to love her and be a father to her. NOTHING legal and still hasn't had the ex arrested. I'm really starting to lose patience. Then, his brother stabs him 3 times and he wants to NOT FILE charges. No choice, the police handle the matter. Then the ex shows up and her boyfriend HITS the babysitter (I think that would cause an arrest of assualt) The ex still has his car (theft charges), and he and his brother, etc. all sit around crying instead of calling the police and having both of them arrested. I am really losing patience at this point.

The only redeeming thing to this point is the hero breaks it off with the rich girl because she is basically treating him like dirt and he has had enough. At this point I don't know if I am going to finish the book or not. I just get so angry with the events that are taking place in this story. He tries everything to lead a good life and yet every character in his life is determined to tear him down and he LETS THEM.

Then there is his brother and EMMA. The preacher's daughter. God, could she be any stupidier, immature, etc. GAG, GAG, GAG. Their 6th date was with her mother and dad where the parents talked all about their getting married! She is saving herself for marriage, kissing is almost taboo, and you just want to throw up with this girl's values. Her "rules" had me thinking, Oh yeah give them a year and he will either be so whipped you can't stand him or divorced. Is there anyone in this town that is half way decent and has a brain????? I don't recommend it. It is not swdet, uplifting, etc. I wish I had not read this far!! I will read the reviews before I start another new book. Could have saved some time.

HASH(0x971adaec) out of 5 stars wanted to love it, but didn't. still ok though 1 May 2013
By Catherine Llewella - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I wanted to love this book - Arden, spoiled rich princess trapped with Travis, flirtatious, gorgeous working boy who's overcome a lot of obstacles in his life!!! Oh, the possibilities!!!

Arden just annoyed the living daylights out of me for over half of the book until she finally comes to terms with her feelings for her fiance and for Travis. And as much as I loved Travis, his need to protect everyone, even his ex-wife, pregnant with another man's child just got to be a bit more than I wanted to deal with.

Overall though, it was a good read - there was enough of a backstory with some of the other characters that kept things interesting, so I went with a 3 star rating.

HASH(0x97379b10) out of 5 stars Could not get through this 3 Jun. 2013
By MMNI - Published on Amazon.com

I was really looking forward to reading this book based on the description but was really disappointed once I started reading it. I got maybe about 20% into it and just couldn't keep going it was so awful. I didn't feel there was chemistry between the main characters, at least not enough to keep me interested in their story.

HASH(0x971d90d8) out of 5 stars OK for a first book 12 May 2013
By allygreen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Well done to Carter Ashby on her first book, it is a great effort. Unfortunately I had some difficulty finishing the story. The characters, whilst interesting needed to be more developed. The characters presented as being too shallow throughout the story (their personalities and their behavior).
The story flowed quite well for most of the book but some aspects could have been dealt with whilst developing the characters rather than abruptly introducing topics or characters in the midst of other issues.
I liked that the author tried to address different family issues and ways of thinking about relationships but it just needed a bit more rounding
Simple and easy book to read.
HASH(0x97a532f4) out of 5 stars Really good start, especially for this being the author's first time out. 12 May 2015
By CINDY F. - Published on Amazon.com

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and for this being the author's first book....I thought she did an excellent job! I totally adored Travis. Even though he and his 3 brothers didn't have the greatest childhoods growing up, after a really rocky start, he turned out to be a really decent man. He ended up being a man with just the right mix of masculine, sensitive, sexiness and sweetness to him. So really...what's not to like? And he was so funny, too. The conversations between him and Arden while they were stranded those few days in the snow storm, was beyond hysterical. I found myself really laughing so hard at some of the sparring between these two. I also loved the way that Travis was always so easily sidetracked by his libido, which is something I always find rather funny.

I also thought the secondary story involving his brother, Dustin and Emma was really good, too. I would have also liked to find out how the relationship between Alice and Vince turned out, or what happened between Shannon and Russ.

The reason for my 4 star rating, instead of the full five...was because of a few minor legalities, I just didn't understand. Like why did they not call the authorities when Tonya abandoned the baby? And why not report the car stolen? Or how about calling DCF the minute they found her and the baby living a life in total squalor, and with a man who is violent no less? And on top of all that...there was even evidence that Tonya was still shooting up. *smh* Or why when that man slapped Emma, why did they call the cops and charge him with assaut and battery? And I also thought that Arden's ex- finance should have been reported to the authorities, too. So many times they could have taken legal steps, and chose not to. That just didn't make any sense to me.
