I found this to be a heart-warming story about heroine's journey to love in multiple forms. Ella cares for her sisters abandoned newborn and seeks help from millionaire playboy Jack Travis who is thought to be father. Good plot, action, relevant issues, and sex - this book had them all. ( )

You've got to love Lisa! Billionaire playboy, and all-around ladies’ man, Jake Travis has a reputation as big as the state of Texas. He drives too fast, lives too hard, and loves too many women to count. In her advice column, and her love life, Ella Varner is always practical. So when she’s left holding her reckless sister’s baby, she decides to ask Jake Travis to take a paternity test. Ella is instantly struck by Jake’s bold good looks and easy charm—but she’s not falling for his sweet talk. This big sexy tomcat needs to take responsibility for his actions, and Ella’s making him stick to his word. Now if she can only ignore the unspoken attraction that smolders between them… ( )

I LOVED the story line.

I did not even like all the detailed sex scenes.

I had just finished her Friday harbor series and was so excited that there were other books by Lisa, now I am afraid to try any of the others. I think there needs to be a sex rating on books now a days. There is a difference between what I deam ok and a fair amount and way too much.
It did not add to the story at all for me.

Ella comes to Houston to take care of her nephew who's mother has left him for a treatment facility. She takes it upon herself to try and figure out who's the baby's father is. She starts with Jack Travis and the relationship that develops is wonderful.

So much other things that I did not like about this book. Will not read any of the others in this series and now worry about her other ones.

not a fan! ( )

Got this book at CVS while I was traveling because I wanted something light and easy. What a GREAT book! I kept turning the pages, and even stopped for lunch while I was driving home just so I could read some more. When I finished it, I went to the bookstore to get the other books in the series... can't wait to read about the other characters in the Travis sphere. :D ( )

I loved this novel and it was my favorite in the Travis series. I didn't think I would, especially with a baby storyline, but it sucked me in all the way through to the end, bringing tears to my eyes with it's happily ever after ending. I loved Jack Travis! I had a harder time getting into Ella, but she won we over soon enough. Despite some minor flaws I found it an emotional, touching contemporary that plucked at my heart strings, not to mention the sizzling love scenes between Ella and Jack. A keeper! ( )
