    I finished this one a few days ago and enjoyed it,just didn t have time to put thoughts to tablet.The heroine was an overworked JL heroine,working 3 jobs just to keep afloat with a dying mother and a somewhat resentful younger sister.The hero is a gentler JL hero who again does not do love because love is a bad,bad thing as it sucks the life out of you and destroys all in its path.I say he is a gentler hero because out of all the heros that this author has written,I did not see that cruelness in I finished this one a few days ago and enjoyed it,just didn t have time to put thoughts to tablet.The heroine was an overworked JL heroine,working 3 jobs just to keep afloat with a dying mother and a somewhat resentful younger sister.The hero is a gentler JL hero who again does not do love because love is a bad,bad thing as it sucks the life out of you and destroys all in its path.I say he is a gentler hero because out of all the heros that this author has written,I did not see that cruelness in him and his dealings with the heroine.I loved how the heroine dealt with her underage sister when she came in to the bar where the heroine is working and made a beeline for the hero,the younger sister wanted to have sex with the hero,become pregnant by poking holes in the condom,have his baby and live the billionaire lifestyle cause she was sick and tired of being poor.There was no mention of her ever working,just the overworked heroine.Anyways the heroine soon put the kibosh into her younger sister s plan and reveals all to the hero while the younger slinks away.But as we all know,the hero has taken an intrest in our overworked gal and sooner than you can say lurve club,after a night of snowboarding skiing,they go to his 30 million dollar ski lodge and have at it.By morning,the hero realizes that maybe,yes,he wantsof the heroine than just a ons and asks her to go away with him.She tells him no as she has responsibilities and a dying mother to take care of,but she is tempted.He leaves,she leaves only to find out her mother has died during the night.Fast forward a few months and the heroine is forced by the younger sister to tell her billionaire lover that she is going to have his baby.This was a good one,I had empathy with this couple and enjoyed them together.Some sad moments,but all turned out well.I can see a book for the younger sister and the hero s best friend Cristiano Sweet epilogue

    Solid one night stand leads to a pregnancy story The opening set in a celebrity filled ski town in Idaho was a nice change Local heroine works three jobs and meets the billionaire Greek hero when her 19 year old sister announces her plan to seduce him and have his baby She sends her sister packing and the hero is fascinated He pays off the bar owner so that the heroine and the rest of the staff have the night off They snowboard with the locals on Renegade Night at the ski hill under the Solid one night stand leads to a pregnancy story The opening set in a celebrity filled ski town in Idaho was a nice change Local heroine works three jobs and meets the billionaire Greek hero when her 19 year old sister announces her plan to seduce him and have his baby She sends her sister packing and the hero is fascinated He pays off the bar owner so that the heroine and the rest of the staff have the night off They snowboard with the locals on Renegade Night at the ski hill under the full moon This leads to a ONS for the virgin heroine Hero wants her to accompany him to Australia and offers her money so she doesn t have to worry about her sister or her dying mother Heroine is insulted and storms off Heroine s mother has died the same night as the ONS.The heroine s sister makes her contact the hero about the baby, but the heroine is adamant that she doesn t want any money from him Of course Hero whisks her off to New York where the heroine marvels at his untold wealth and all of the New York landmarks she s seen in movies This part of the story was charming as the sunny heroine befriends all of the hero s servants and generally turns his life upside down I also enjoyed her preferences for vintage clothes and the description of the vintage clothing warehouse that offered cupcakes for their shoppers The black moment is only vaguely black because it s told from the point of view of the confused hero who finally smartens up after the baby is born But not before she is given the unfortunate name of Velvet Kourakis Ah, well, he ll know better next time

novels I immediately started to read it, even though I was in the middle of another novel Such is the temptation of a new Jennie Lucas novel I did put it on hold for a short while, however and went on to finish Lynne G s new novel When I came back to this, I found myself a little piqued that the H Ares would practise unsafe sex with the heroine the guy performed oral sex on her the same day they met He has no idea what her sexual history is we know she is a virgin but he only discovers that until after they have sex This is the second time in a month that I ve come across this in a romance novel Why do men wear condoms to protect themselves from STD s if they re gonna put their mouths on some strange woman s hoo ha DUH I wish authors would not do this I know they re trying to write erotic sex scenes and I understand this fully but I can t get all excited over a hero who is not that discriminating in his sexual escapades Ares had just broken up with his former mistress two days before this encounter with the heroine Seriously He goes from one one live in lover to performing oral sex on another woman who s a total stranger in the space of 3 days Save the oral sex for after the MC s get to know each other and trust each other Sue me I m fastidious Having dealt with that, I can now go on to the actual story line and character development issues Ruby was a terrific heroine She s beautiful and built like a 40 s screen pin up goddess, loves vintage clothing, works 3 jobs to take care of her dying mother and selfish, useless teen sister Ivy In fact the MC s only meet because slutty little sister Ivy follows Ares to the club where Ruby s a bartender Ivy s dingbat plan is to seduce the billionaire Ares, deliberately poke holes in the condom and trap him into marriage via pregnancy This girl is 19 and doesn t even think that she can also get an STD by poking holes in a condom Sigh Moving onAres takes no notice of Ivy which is exactly what the little schemer deserves I laughed when Ruby actually outed Ivy s stupid ass plan and made her look like the fool that she is, in front of Ares That surprised me because usually the heroines are always willing to shelter their relatives from embarrassment but Ivy deserved that dressing down for the way she had been rude to her big sister Ares was sexy but a bit of a quiet, loner type of H He d been hurt in the past by women in two former relationships and has now become the conventional jaded, disillusioned and cynical HP hero Ares pulls out all the stops to seduce Ruby and their night together was quite romantic except for the unsafe oral sex part because it included some special moments on the ski slopes at night and in Ruby s 36 yr old truck I enjoyed how the author showed the flip side of things by letting the billionaire go on a cheap date with a poor girl and ride in her old, rusted pick up wearing vintage ski clothes It was unusual and cool The next morning, however, Ares F s things up royally by offering to pay Ruby to be his jet setting mistress His unconcern for her dying mother s welfare upset me It wasn t that he was deliberately callous but that he simply didn t know how to care or how to profess sincere human empathy for another person s predicament This pissed off Ruby and she dumped him, telling him to forget she ever existed That was a big blow to his ego but he huffed, puffed and flew away to Australia on his private jet Ruby returns to her trailer to discover that her mom had died at the hospital the night before while she was with Ares She also discovers she s pregnant and her selfish brat sister Ivy abandons her just because she refuses to beg Ares for money I can understand Ivy s arguments because Ruby was being stupid by not considering that a baby is entitled to its father s financial support However Ivy s desertion of her pregnant, ailing sister was disgusting and selfish Ares turns up again and takes care of Ruby by whisking her away with him to New York The selfish sister Ivy even starts to return Ruby s phone calls after Ares pays her college tuition fees I wish the author had just written Ivy out of the story altogether She didn t deserve to get free tuition and money after the way she deserted Ruby and ignored her text messages The relationship between Ares and Ruby was strained because of the H s inability to trust and to allow another human being into his heart I noticed a recurring motif here with Jennie Lucas this is not the first novel she s written that shows a H having a mansion whose interior decoration style is characterized by basic black, white and sharp, minimalist avant garde styles Then, in comes the heroine who adds the touch of colour literally and symbolically to his life and it all slowly begins to thaw the deep freeze within his soul and melt his frozen heart I think it s a recurring motif in a couple of Jennie Lucas novels There s a perfect example of a dialectic relationship here Ruby is the exact antithesis of Ares and it takes them coming together to forge a perfect new synthesis Ruby s love of vintage clothing, her joy for life, her pleasure in simple things and in Nature clashes with the stark, edgy, 2 dimensional nature of Ares hard, uncompromising and colorless life Ares also feels possessive jealousy for the first time in his life, when he sees Ruby s ex fiance trying to win her back.I enjoyed seeing how Ruby brought color to Ares heart and how he gradually started to soften up to her The scene at their first aborted wedding was heart breaking Ruby notices how Ares looks so unhappy and realizes that he doesn t love her and is forcing himself to marry her so she doesn t go through with the wedding I was, strangely, happy that she did that It showed she was a heroine who was not willing to settle for anything less than love I loved that She loved him with all her heart but couldn t marry him if her love was not requited Of course, it takes the absence of Ruby in his life for Ares to see what he has been missing He gets rid of all her new colorful furnishings and makes his housekeeper convert the mansion s interior back to its old staid black and white style The housekeeper gets fed up of him and quits and it takes the inadvertent interference of his former mistress Poppy for the fool to realize finally that he loves Ruby When he finds Ruby, he sees that she has opened a new store for retro clothing called Ruby s Vintage Delight That was so cute Ruby had given birth to their daughter and still found the inner strength to move on and try to build new dreams for herself.I liked the epilogue It highlights their wedding where their 6 month old daughter attends as a toddler bridesmaid and it was a perfect ending for a sweet novel Ares wasn t as alpha a H as I had hoped he would be, but he did remain celibate during the months he had been parted from Ruby That, in my opinion, counts for a lot

    After reading Lynne Graham s newest book, The Secret Valtinos Baby, and being very disappointed, I was excited to read this Jennie Lucas book This new Jennie Lucas book was just what I needed to get over my disappointment in the Lynne Graham book and I am a HUGE LG fan.Let me start off with my BIGGEST pet peeve, issue, disappointment with this book During the hero and heroine s very first sexual encounter, after only knowing each other a few hours, they have oral sex In this day and age, wh After reading Lynne Graham s newest book, The Secret Valtinos Baby, and being very disappointed, I was excited to read this Jennie Lucas book This new Jennie Lucas book was just what I needed to get over my disappointment in the Lynne Graham book and I am a HUGE LG fan.Let me start off with my BIGGEST pet peeve, issue, disappointment with this book During the hero and heroine s very first sexual encounter, after only knowing each other a few hours, they have oral sex In this day and age, who does that with a complete stranger without knowing their sexual history I already suspend my belief in strangers having sex with each other due to them existing in the world of HPlandia however, I couldn t get over them having oral sex after just meeting each other.Ivy, the heroine s little sister was a spoiled, selfish brat who left her sick, pregnant sister all alone after the heroine stopped the little sister s horrible scheme of trying to get pregnant by the hero by poking holes in the condom and her refusal to ask for financial help I guess the little sister redeems herself but only after the hero pays her college tuition and gives her a monthly stipend to live on.This book was angsty especially with the hero s upbringing with his horrible parents and the heroine having to watch her mother struggle with multiple jobs, which the heroine eventually took over once her mom got sick I appreciate the heroine not wanting to take the hero s money and her not wanting to marry without love but, to tell him via her sister not to come and visit his newborn daughter who s name he didn t know seemed especially cruel and selfish on her part The heroine was also having a difficult pregnancy and she could have at least contacted the hero if nothingthan to make sure her child was taken care of The hero s attempts to not get attached to his unborn child was a turnoff for sure.I really did like this book and though the hero and heroine are not favorites of mine, Jenning Lucas wrote a strong and compelling story.4 Stars well deserved
