HOWEVER, MYSTERIOUS LESLIE MURRY WAS ABOUT TO CHANGE ALL THAT. FOR THE CYNICAL TYCOON'S SPIRITED NEW EMPLYEE ROUSED HIS TEMPER LIKE NO ONE HAD BEFORE. AND DESPITE HIS FIERCE DENIALS, HER SOFT VULNERABILITY ALSO BROUGHT OUT HIS EVERY PROTECTIVE INSTINCT.
AFTER SAMPLING HER SOUL SEARING KISSES, MATT WAS SORELY TEMPTED TO POSSESS THE ENTICNG INNOCENT WHO ACHED FOR THIS MAN'S TENDER TOUCH. STILL MATT WASN'T ABOUT TO LET SOWN HIS GUARD UNTIL HE CHARMED LESLIE INTO SURRENDERING HER HEART!
THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS THAT I THINK DIANA PALMER HAS EVER WRITTEN.
THE FEMALE IN THIS BOOK IS NO PUSH OVER, AS SO MANY OF HER PREVIOUS BOOKS HAVE DISPLAYED. LESLIE HAS A TERRIBLE SECRET, THAT HAUNTS HER AND PREVENTS HER FROM FINDING LOVE WITH A MAN.
MATT COULD BE THAT MAN, BUT ARROGANCE AT BEING TURNED DOWN HAS MADE HIM BRUTALLY HARD TOWARDS LESLIE AND THE MORE SHE FIGHTS HIM, THE MORE HE WANTS HER.
IF YOU WANT A GOOD ROMANCE WHERE THE WOMEN GOES NOT GIVE IN ALL THE TIME, WHERE SHE HAS THE GUTS TO FIGHT BACK, THEN THIS IS IT.
DIANA PALMER IS A VERY GOOD AUTHOR, BUT SHE HAS A TENDANCY TO VIEW WOMEN AS ALL, FRIGHTENED LITTLE VIRGINS, WHO GIVE IN TO EVERY MANS NEEDS. AT TIMES IT IS HIGHLY ANNOYING, SHE FOLLOWS SUCH A PATTERN THAT YOU INSTINCTIVELY KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. THAT IS NOT THE CASE WITH THIS BOOK, THAT IS WHY THIS ONE OF MY FAVOURITES.
THE STORY: Leslie Murray has a horrendous past that she is hiding from. She was almost raped as a teenager and then shot in a salacious event that the press is still interested in. She just wants to have a quiet life. When she does to work for Matt Caldwell's business, he is determined not to trust her. He misunderstands her confused responses and having been burned before by a woman believes Leslie to be manipulative and deceitful. When he finds out the truth about her past, he needs to earn her trust that he unknowingly betrayed.
OPINION: I enjoyed reading this book. It was a simple read and typical of Palmer's type of book. Although I was somewhat annoyed by Matt's insistence on misunderstanding Leslie, I thought that he redeemed himself well and I liked that the book resolved all the loose ends of the story. The book isn't deep and I don't think it is one that I would put on a keeper shelf, but I enjoyed it while I was reading it.
WORTH MENTIONING: While it is not necessary to have read other books in the series to enjoy this one, fans of the series will be pleased with the little updates and cameos that Palmer works into this book.
FINAL DECISION: This book is classic Diana Palmer: innocent woman who is treated poorly because of mistakes and assumptions made by the hero. This book is what I expect when I read a Palmer book. It falls in the middle of her books for me. I've read better but I enjoyed the story in this one.
CONNECTED BOOKS: MATT CALDWELL is the 22nd book in the Long, Tall Texans series. The books can be read as standalones.
STAR RATING: I give this book 3.75 stars.
