Sigh.Another friends to lovers story bites the dust.Julie Kingston s visa is about to expire and if she doesn t do something about it, she will be deported Enter Dr Lucas Wakefield, Julie s boss and best friend who offered a marriage of convenience so Julie could stay in the States Now here s my problem with this book I couldn t connect with Julie or with Luc or with their relationship It seemed forced and contrived They had zero chemistry It was really sad This book had no real conflict All of [...]

    2. 3.75 Stars Let me begin by saying that I have a very difficult time reading any story where an ex girlfriend, ex fiance, or ex wife comes back into the picture view spoiler Since I had no idea what the ex was really after or if she had truly changed my trip through this book was not a relaxing event I was too concerned and keyed up about what the ex was really up to Had I known in advance what the outcome was I could have relaxed and enjoyed it hide spoiler

    4. More Than a Convenient Bride Texas Cattleman s Club After the Storm Book 6 by Michelle Celmer is a part of a series but because of the way it is written you can read the book alone and follow along with the story I love series books so I recommend reading the series, but if you were to pick up this book you d be able to follow.Julie Kingston s work Visa is expiring and the government will not issue her a new one She really doesn t want to go back to South Africa so her best friend Dr Luk Wakefie [...]

    5. Since this novel is a variation of let s get married for the sake of the baby trope, I breathed a sigh of relief In this modern day and age, there s not a good enough reason for people who barely know each other and shared nothing but one steamy night between the sheets to get hitched If you don t even know whether the one you re marrying is a day or night person, there s bound to be real trouble down the road No, the couple in this novel get married because her visa work card has expired and sh [...]

    7. As already stated in another review, I m a romance junkie, whether in books, movies, tv shows so on the books side of things, Harlequin has always been a go to editor for me The only problem with the Harlequin books is that the number of pages is really limited and it s difficult to make me believe that the person you met 3 weeks ago is the love of your life and, of course you want to marry the guy Really After 3 weeks So, anyway, this explains why I find the best friend or friend, or friend of [...]

    8. Ugh, what a waste of time I really wanted to like this book The basic plot was promising But I just never cared at all about the 2 main characters They both had emotional baggage that was mentioned and brought up and compared to other situations at the oddest times and it didn t make any sense Their personalities were so dull, bland, one dimensional I didn t feel anything at all for them all the way through I would say that I was hoping they wouldn t stay together, but I d have to care even a li [...]

It was so wonderful to return to the town of Royal and the aftermath of the tornado This was also a new author for me, and I was so glad for a chance to read this book.This was a fantastic addition to the Texas Cattleman s Club series The hero and heroine are both strong and capable, and watching them go from friends to lovers was really romantic.Julie s character was really quite interesting and she had great backstory Luc s backstory wasn t as intriguing, but I really liked his family and his [...]

    17.

    18. I like the storyline of friends becoming lovers especially in this book just because Julie will be deported since her visa cannot be extended.And Lucas dying to make her stay Added with his ex, Amelia coming back too.But, from all the Harlequin Desire books that I have read, I have a feeling this book falls in the wrong category, not Desire, to me should be Harlequin Romance, and not so much intense passion that I usually read in Desire category.And I think I would have given a perfect five or e [...]
