🌟🌟🌟🌟 I love Karen Hawkins, I really do!! I buy or pre order her books without a second thought. I loved this whole series but i feel that this one just had a litle bit missing, i don't know what and the heroine grated on me sometimes. I general i would recommend this without a second thought. I loved Nik 💗 #osrbc #romansty

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Really enjoyed this! Took me a while to read..between study, full time work and a family but I finally got there 😊 the stars say it all #osrbc #romansty

Chrissyreadit It looks so pretty where you are! Here is still a little cold and dreary. 5y
Chrissyreadit What are you in school for? 5y
monicab50 @Chrissyreadit that was the photo I took the day I finished the book while on holiday in January 😊 we just started Autumn but still very hot. I decided on a career change late in life and am studying for my Certificate iii in Child Care. Am almost finished and then go on to Diploma hopefully. What on earth finally possessed me to do it so late in life I really don't know... Lol 😁 5y

Chrissyreadit @monicab50 I understand! I‘m 46 and starting a second masters for LPC- and have teenagers. I am kind of cranky that I need to do this for licensure because my first masters is “too old”. 5y
Chrissyreadit But do you love your change?! That makes it slightly easier for me- I love my job. 5y
monicab50 I'm turning 51 and signed up for this as a traineeship, along with a traineeship pay. Massive pay drop. It was advertised as part time but I've been working full time hours. Alot of ups and downs but I'm almost there...I can see it and smell it but just can't grab it yet. Feeling above and beyind stressed. 5y
monicab50 @Crissyreadit That is unfair for you!! I don't see why they can just do updates/training sessions instead of saying it's to old. That's not nice. I was going to go into counselling but changed my mind 5y
monicab50 @Chrissyreadit yes I do love it!! 😊😊 5y

⭐⭐⭐⭐✨ I always give Julia Quinn's books 5 stars but this particular one started off great and it ended with you wanting more. I just wanted a little more of their relationship/story in the middle of the book. This had some real LOL moments, as thru always do 😂😂. Still loved it and will always recommend her books to everyone #osrbc #romansty

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ What can I say!! It's l a Karen Hawkins novel and not much can go wrong!! really enjoyed this story. I laughed out loud and even cried a little a couple of pages into the book. In all honesty, I would've loved to have a little more depth of the relationship towards the end of the story but have nothing to complain about 💗💗

I loved the dialogue in this book or should I say the continuous banter. Had me in stitches from her dediction to her dad all the way to the end. This is an absolute keeper and one you would revist always. #romansty #osrbc

First of all...Happy New Year Litsy friends!! 🎉🎉 I haven't been on for a while and have missed you all 😊 💗 Now about the book....what can I say...
I laughed soooo much through this book, from beginning to end, that my daughter asked about what was so funny..I gave her the parts that I had read and had her in stitches too. I now know why everyone loved it and all the puns that were used. A fabulous read which ended 2016 for me. #romansty #orsbc

Have mixed feelings with this book. Part's of it were good but for a while I just couldn't get past it. I think it's a book that you will like or hate depending on your own view...so I will leave you to judge for yourselves. Let me know what you think please #osrbc #romansty

Girl's... guess what?? I strayed away from Eligible again 😣 I don't know why!?! I had posted the pictured book on our favourite Facebook page, osrbc, a couple of weeks ago, where for the first time I had bought books from a book exchange store. I really liked this book but would've liked a couple of more chapter's to tie up some things but none the less it was very enjoyable 😉😉 #osrbc #romansty

MrBook Nice review! 6y

Marrying Winterborne | Lisa Kleypas

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 stars... I loooved this book!! Adore Rhys in every way there is...one of my top 5 H. There is another bit in this story that I wanted to post but I don't want to spoil to much....let's just say it's a letter Rhys writes to Helen. I just melted. I enjoyed this alot more than Cold Hearted Rake only because I didn't like Kathleen much as there were times she grated on my nerves. #osrbc #romansty

monicab50 Just a note that there are so many lol moments in this book! The one liners are excellent. Love Pandora, I'm sooo excited for her story as I've recently noticed that it links with the Wallflower series 💜💜 6y
Amalia94 OH MY GOODNESS I WANT TO READ THIS ONE! > 6y

KimberlyCarrington I fell in love with Rhys in Cold-hearted rake and after reading Marrying Winterbone I'm totally crazy about him! I think he'll be one of the greatest Kleypas heroes 💜💜💜💜 6y
monicab50 I so agree with you #KimberlyCarrington. It was the same for me, I don't think any other hero will compare or live up to him 6y
MrBook Great review 😊👍🏻! 6y

Cold-Hearted Rake | Lisa Kleypas
Pickpick

I had to read this before Marrying Winterbourn, which I started today 😉 Loved this book #osrbc

AWorkOfMagic90 I loved this one! 6y
monicab50 So did I... So many substories going on too 6y
KimberlyCarrington For me this one is a 3/5. I love Lisa Kleypas but I think the best of Cold-hearted rake is Rhys Winterbone and his story (well, actually I think the weakest part is the main story, I enjoyed a lot the rest). Of course I completely feel in love with Rhys in Marrying Winterbone 😍😍😍😍 6y

Christy2318 I liked Cold Hearted Rake but I loved Marrying Winterbourne. 6y
monicab50 I started reading Marrying Winterbourne today....and am enjoying it. Out of curiosity I read the few pages of the next book and was sooo excited. I thought the name of the book resembled one of her Wallflower series and omg I noticed the connection between the two series....jumping up and with glee 😁😁 6y
