Nanee's Review of Reluctant for Romance by Pamela Fudge - Samhain Publishing
"She meant to give him a piece of her mind but lost a piece of her heart."
Carly Ray intended to march right up to Declan O Halloran and tell him exactly what she thinks of the man who accidently put her mum in a Dorset hospital. But from the moment she sets foot on his building company s work site, she s off balance.
First of all, muddy, rock-strewn ground and power heels don t mix. Second, the man she confronts? She s seen those compelling, aquamarine eyes before when he personally delivered flowers to Mum s hospital room.
It s Declan s fault that Carly has to jeopardize her career to take over the care and feeding of three spoiled brothers who ve never lifted a finger around the house. But she never expected him to offer her a job.
In spite of herself, Carly begins to fall for the kind, rugged entrepreneur. The trick will be convincing her heart she can live without him when Mum is back on her feet, and it s time to return to London.
This Retro Romance reprint was originally published in 1992 by Robert Hale, Ltd."
I thought this story was romantic, sweet and loving. I thought the characters were good. Hal is a sexy tanned God with a sweet demeanor and a huge heart. Carly is a career minded women who wants nothing to do with being a housewife and catering to her lazy brothers until she meets Hal. Their relationship was flirty then all out I love you 's was a little too quick of a turn around to me, I did like them together though, Carly was more fun, more natural with Hal then in power suits I think. I love how Hal put it all out there, so damn sweet. The only other thing was there's no time elapsing like one minute she's gone, no sense of how long then she's back. I think the book was good, just not great. I did think the characters were good. 3-3.5 stars
