Product Description

JUST THE WAY YOU ARE, #1 in Christina Dodd's New York Times bestselling romantic suspense series, Lost Hearts...Mystery and misery scar their young lives. Three sisters and their foster brother are torn apart by tragedy and scattered across the country to grow up apart...

Hope Prescott lives in Boston, far from the warm, southern home she recalls. She works with one goal in mind--finding her long-lost siblings. Yet her job at the answering service and her own loving nature creates a family of friends, people she knows only by their voices. She especially likes Griswald, gruff old butler for wealthy Zack Givens.

Meeting Griswald is a shock; he is neither gruff nor old, but a powerful, handsome man. In fact, he is Zack Givens, mysterious, cold, heartless--and charmed by the artless young woman who brings him chicken soup, treats him like a friend...and falls in love with the humble man she imagines him to be. Inevitably she will discover Zack's secret and face his betrayal. Then can Zack solve the mystery that haunts Hope's past to prove their futures lie together?

Too explicit sex for me. I liked the story but ended abruptly. I would like to have. Read more of their life together.

Took way too long, to get to semi-cliff-hanger. Unlikeable H & h. Sorry I wasted my time slogging through to the end.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring 6 August 2016
By my thoughts - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Boring, repetitive and absolutely no suspense. A complete waste of my time and money. The "bad guy" who was supposed to add the suspense was insignificant to the story. Could have taken him out the story and never noticed part of the story was missing.

2.0 out of 5 stars I love this author 1 August 2016
By Haelee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I don't even know what to say. I love this author, the book was free for download, and I just couldn't get into it. The story never evolved and the characterization was mediocre at best. I need to check the date of publication; I know Christina Dodd has better works published. I can always get into far fetched tales of romance...if they have me excited or emotionally invested. Grateful, at least, to have a free read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Zach and Hope's Saga! 3.25***** SPOILER ALERT 3 August 2016
By SoCal Gigi - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Zach Givins, wealthy mistrusting billionaire, and Hope Prescott, down-to-earth, helpful, yet mistrusting of humanity, orphaned, poor waif, met over an answering service line. From cloaked lies to protect his heart, Zach led Hope down a seduction path, while Hope slowly and unwittingly became his lover, and his moral and social compass. Once the truth is unravelled, his Aunt Cecily and his parent confront Zach with the facts that he has fallen hopelessly in love with Hope, he rescued her from the mobster, Janek, with her friends, located her half brother Gabriel, and continue to search for her sisters, and the truth behind her parents' murders.

The character development was well done, the plot predictable yet charming. Leaps of faith and trust are the cornerstones in any relationship are the prevailing novel's themes. Can't wait to read about her sister's and Gabriel's journeys into adulthood!
Romance novel readers will love this book, it's a quick beach read!!
