I loved this book! It was just a cute, fun story. I couldn't put it down until I found out how it ended. I will definitely read all of Kristan Higgins books she has out now and comes out with in the future.

This is written in first person present tense which isn't common these days, so it took me awhile to overcome that. While I thought there were some things that were underdeveloped, the heroine was compelling. I deeply felt her yearning for the hero, a man she'd loved since she was ten and who fit into her family like another brother. I wish there had been more (especially earlier in the story) that showed why he was worthy of her love, but the depth of her emotion was never in doubt. In the end, I'll read more by this author.

This was an okay book. Decent story line, but I didn't think it was very well developed. The character in this book says "bleeping" all the time instead of using the actual word. At first it was cool, but very over-used by the end of the book. All in all it was okay....I'd read another by this author, but if I had two authors to chose from, I'd save this one for last.

Loved this book enough to go out and order more of the author's books. Chastity O'Neil is a big girl, not fat, just tall with the famous O'Neil shoulders. Occassionally she'd like to be a delicate flower, but that doesn't seem to be in the cards. She's a sturdy girl, athletic. And she's been in love with Trevor forever. Only Trevor doesn't seem to be in love with her... and there's this beautiful doctor who does want to get married and have the four kids Chastity is dreaming of. How long should a girl wait for true love to get off his duff and acknowledge her existance before settling for a wonderful man who actually does love her?

Love kristan higgins but the beginning of the book was slow hard to get into it didn't pick up until about 100 pages in. After that I couldn't put it down

Feel good romance! I really enjoyed this book, but my first complaint is that Buttercup (Chastity's dog) is not a Basset hound. I wish the cover really did have Buttercup's picture because I have trouble imagining a part Bloodhound/Great Dane/Bull Mastiff, even though the dog's a delightful, lovable character. The other characters are great, too, and it's an engaging, fun story. It's a nice change to read a book with plenty of sex but none of it graphic. I've given up on some authors because the sex scenes are just too graphic.

Higgins' characters are always so good, and this is no exception. I really recommend this book for fun reading!

This book was cute. I thought I would like it as much as a Rachel Gibson book, but it didn't quite meet that standard. I liked the heroine but it was quite annoying that the man she loved withheld himself from her throughout the book. I didn't feel the ending really justified his actions so it was a little confusing. I did think the book had a lot of heart.

Kristan Higgins is like comfort food. You know that you will enjoy it. Chastity has come home and really wants a family of her own. She becomes fixated on a new doctor while ignoring Trevor, her first love. You know it will all work out in the end. Alpha males, great family dynamics and just enough quirkiness to make you smile. 3.75 stars
