    One thought on “Must Like Kids”

    1. This was alright. I had issues with it because it was too fast paced. When I say that I mean that for what happened - meeting someone, falling in love etc - it happened in such a short time frame that it didn't feel believable. And then when it jumps a couple of months at the end, that also didn't feel believable because it just seemed that the author was attempting to tie up loose ends and that was the easiest way to do so.I also didn't like how the kids were written. They sounded way too grown [...]

    2. 4 Stars ~ Newly hired as CEO for a large infant product company, Best for Baby, Alec made a remark to a journalist that's sent his career and the company stock spiraling. Now every mother who buys Best for Baby products thinks the CEO hates kids. It's not that Alec hates kids, they just make him uncomfortable after all he's a product of boarding schools and nannies. With the Board of Directors anxious to do damage control, Alec is given no choice but to cooperate with the image consultant they'v [...]

    3. This book was pretty good, but it being a Harlequin KISS book brought it down a few notches. Harlequin KISS books are known to be very clean. No sex, no foreplay, and in this case, that was bad. In one instance they were kissing & the next it was a month later & your thinking "did they do it?" And a few pages later, he mentions it in an offhanded way. Well, HOW WAS IT?!?!?! They obsess over kissing each other, but not one peep about the sex? Huh?The lack of romance in this book was it's [...]

    4. An enjoyable story. The hero is CEO of a Big Baby Products company who steps into a firestorm when he tells a reporter he isn't all that wild about children. His company hires the heroine, an image consultant and single mother, to head up the damage control campaign. Liked that the author showed a single mother heroine juggling a demanding job and motherhood. Liked that the hero had baggage and, while uncomfortable around children, wasn't a jerk-face. A solid read.

    5. I liked Alec and Julia's story. Alec runs a baby department store and made an off the cuff remark about not likening children. His board hires image consultant Julia to improve is image or he is out. Julia single mother of two is trying to balance work and her kids but at times it's difficult. Alec is brought around her kids and it starts to improve his image but they both start to fall for the other. I loved the ending.

    6. Rating: 2I was expecting so much more for this book and was a little let down. It was an ok book but I really wished that the heroine and hero would have had more scenes with the heroine's kids. I realize that the heroine didn't want to intermingle the hero with her kids and all that, but I really wished she would have.Really pretty sad, it was such a blah read that I made myself finish but there was no sparkle what so ever in their relationship.

    7. The characters are likeable enough, and while the romance seemed to be based on more than heated attraction, elements were lacking. The biggest problems for me were first, the ending seemed cut short, and the second is more difficult. It's more like I can't exactly describe what exactly was missing. Because I can't define it the whole story became tainted by the vague sense that a few somethings are missing and it grates in the back of the mind because you just don't know what it is.

    8. Oh, to hell with it! This is a total five-star! :DHow I wish it wasn't over. *pout* I wanted it to last longer!I stayed up until 4am last night reading it. And when I woke up today the first thing I did after making coffee was read what I had left. Study? What's that word? This was better! ;)Ah! I loved this book. Even though I wish the ending had lasted longer. It was pure perfection. Yay!

    9. A bachelor operating a baby business states he doesn't like kids. His board hires a image consultant to help repair his reputation since the business is losing money. Naturally the image consultant has kids and is a widow. Do Alec McAvoy and Julia Stillwell find their happiness? Not without some troubles, including one child who is not in favor of the relationship. Wonderfully written!

    10. Very different concept that I liked. The hero grew on me throughout the book. There is one memorable part where he really stood up for himself that was a little gut trenching but also showed how much he had grown,IMHO

    11. This was a nice story but moved just a little slow for me. I felt it would have been better with more dialogue, but who knows what they would have talked about

    12. Enjoyable romance in the city between two professional adults. The timing was a bit off for my taste, but other than that good for a snowy afternoon.

    13. A wonderful story that was devoured in one sitting. A riveting story from Harlequin Riva series that caught my attention from the first page to the last word. A pleasure to read from Jackie Braun.

    14. This was one of those light, cute and fun reads. Not a really long book so its a great book to pick up if you just want something light and fun.
