I read a lot of books on the kindle, especially romances, and especially light-hearted escapist free romances. Its very rare I can't finish a book, even badly written ones I usually plough through to the end. This isn't particularly badly written, but I couldn't finish it. I kept wanting to shout at the woman to grow some backbone. A supposedly successful super model seems happy to let everyone walk all over, her family run her life, her mother puts her down all the time, and everyone constantly implies she is somehow 'difficult' or 'high maintenance' because she has fairly ordinary day-to-day problems. The hero is continously upsetting her or treating her badly and is instantly forgiven the next time she sees him because he is so attractive. In fact their relationship seems to be entirely based on physical attraction. I didn't like either of them and really couldn't be bothered to find out what happened next.

This is a light hearted book with no deep issues to trouble your mind as you read. I would have given it five stars except at the start some of the writing was a bit stilted. I understood what the author was saying but felt it was not put across in the best way. However either I became used to the style or it improved as I stopped noticing any issues as I read on. This is certainly a book worth reading.

I really enjoyed this book and I also liked the characters.
The only thing I didn't care for was Caleb's "take charge attitude" and hurtful words to Ally, which she instantly forgives him for as soon as she sees him. Bleck!
Plus their problems got solved way to easily. Then the end of the story just finished really abruptly.
Tank was definitely my favourite part of this book. Bless him.

HASH(0x99fda6d8) out of 5 stars Good premise, but missed the mark... 11 Sept. 2012
By Sparky_writer12 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I didn't mean to purchase this book, but ended up buying it by accident. I decided that since I had payed $5 for it I was going to read it no matter what. It had a slow start, but I kept reading in hope that it would pick up. Unfortunately it didn't.
The idea behind this book is that a famous model decides she wants out of the modeling industry so she can be close to family and experience quiet Texas life. She buys a huge home that is right next to a cattle rancher's spread. The cattle rancher has had bad experiences with previous neighbors so he doesn't like the idea of a famous model moving in next door. This is a storyline with promise. I thought it could be good. Here's the problems that I had with it:

First of all, the model buys a "fixer upper" mansion, which would have been fine but instead of having the model trying to figure out plumbing or painting her kitchen, she spends the whole time calling various companies to come and do it for her. She just keeps throwing money at all these different companies who are all constantly screwing her over. You'd think she would catch on eventually. Secondly, the cattle rancher is supposed to not like having her around, which gave me the impression that there would be more arguing between the neighbors. That was not the case though. He spends his time finding excuses to go over to the model's house and protect her from companies who try to take advantage of her. Finally, I had a very hard time believing the excuse that is given multiple times for the treatment of the model by her mother. Multiple people say that her mom treats her poorly because she is jealous of how beautiful, rich, and famous her daughter is.

Basically, the plot of this book just seems very poorly put together. It just doesn't flow as a storyline. I ended up giving up reading this book 50% through because I just couldn't force myself to read anymore.

HASH(0x99f7fd5c) out of 5 stars If Calamity Jane was a Hot Model-2.5 6 Oct. 2012
By bibliophile2011 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Hummmm... I am torn on the rating so this gets a 2.5 rounded up. Just how much misadventure and bad luck can one person have in the span of 2 months? I think the only thing that Ally did not experience was catching a rare tropical disease and surviving a firery car crash. Sheesh. Ally moves to Texas, where her family is, to start fresh, tired from her modeling career and hurt by her cheating boyfriend. We soon learn that Ally is the butt of all family jokes and maybe rightfully so with the amount of calamity and chaos in her life.

This was a cute romance but the constant evolving problems in Ally and Caleb's ( the convenient hottie neighbor) world start to get tiresome and by the time a new problem hits the other one is either hastily resolved or never fixed. Not to mention the overly quick ending. After I was done I said out loud..." That's it?". There were a lot of plot holes and quick resolutions that left me unsatisfied. Makes me wonder if the author was stuck on how to finish the story and randomly decided okay....that's a good spot. Not necessarily a bad read but perhaps a little less randomly forced conflicts and some more careful plot construction would makes this story more entertaining.

HASH(0x99f7fc60) out of 5 stars Too many holes 9 Oct. 2012
By daniellep59 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I wish I had not wasted my time reading this book! The author does a good job of setting up several scenarios that could give the story a good climax (The cattle rustlers, the antifreeze, the stalkerish ex-boyfriend...) but never manages to draw any resolution with any of them. Also, there were things that seemed like they needed more details to thoroughly paint a picture for the reader, but the author gives them one sentence. On the other hand, she goes into great lengths to explain seemingly pointless parts. I didn't need to read about Ally getting ready for every single day!

If the author had managed to finish more of the threads in the story, I would have given it a better review. As it was, I felt like the book got cut off about 75% of the way through.

HASH(0x99b94b4c) out of 5 stars Disappointing read 21 July 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read the book but found it disappointing on several levels. First, there were many errors, including words that were omitted or misused. In addition, I felt the story line was interesting but weak. It just had too many holes and didn't progress well. The characters and story could have been good, but, as far as I'm concerned, the author missed the mark.

HASH(0x99ba4ef4) out of 5 stars Unbelieveable nonsense 25 Aug. 2012
By CPN1970 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wow first of all I can't believe I actually read this awfully written book! Ally is a supermodel that finds out her perfect boyfriend is a cheater. She leaves New York because of that and the fact she's tired of being a model. Her sister uses that to her advantage a begs her to help her with her catering business. Kat is selfish, self centered, only thinking of herself and her business. Caleb is a hot cowboy who happens to be Ally's new neighbor, he is rude and has the raging hormones if a teenage boy when it comes to Ally. The story gets worse, Ally is a magnet for all bad things, Caleb wants to stay away from her but can't. He plays her knight to her damsel in distress. I wonder what the editor was smoking when they read this btw It's Lucy Arnaz not ArnEz. And if you think things don't get more farfetched they do 15 minutes of her moving out her house blows up, and what does she do? Faints then wants to have sex with her filthy rich cowboy, that's the end of the book!
