    1. This was just what I needed – a sexy and very funny romance.Lacy Maguire might be divorced and sexually frustrated but that doesn’t mean she needs a man in her life. With so many divorces under her mother and grandmother’s belts, she refuses to become the same and catching her ex with his secretary against the elevator wall she knows that men can’t be trusted. She has her dog Fabio, her three cats and her job as a photographer, she’s content with her life as it is and sex before wasn [...]


    2. This book was so much fun to read. It's a sizzling romantic comedy about a woman who's dog discovers an injured man in her backyard. He (Chase) is a cop that just escaped the bad guy, but who is also being framed as a bad guy. You know from page 1 who the bad guy really is, but its quite a mystery as to how they will prove it. Meanwhile, these two spend many days and hours confined together in her remote home near a lake, which creates a great deal of witty dialog and steamy scenes as they go ab [...]

    4. 4 1/2 Stars!! Sweet, sassy, sexy fun! Very enjoyable, feel good read!Lacy stumbles upon Chase as he's running from someone who wants to frame him for murder. Initially he forces her, albeit rather nicely, to help him, but when she sees for herself that he's telling the truth, she not only helps him, but falls in love with him too.Unlucky in love and in a sexual funk, Chase shows Lacy that there's truth in the magazine articles that she's been reading about multiple orgasmsy does he ever, over an [...]


    5. This is the third romance I have read by Christie Craig and she has a formula. Her contemporary stories take place somewhere in Texas. The heroine initially comes across as ditzy. There is a no-good ex-husband. The heroes are detectives working for law enforcement and/or are private investigators. Someone is murdered. The romance takes place within a short time span. There are humorous moments, some of which are pretty funny. There are pets with personalities. The H/h have minor communication is [...]


    6. 3.75 stars. The first of the Divorced trilogy, DD&D is a romantic comedy from start to finish. Add in a fairly absorbing suspense, interesting secondary characters, a LOT of sex, and four adorable animals, andwhat's not to like? Lots of light-hearted fun and a few good laughs, even if it reads like a French farce at times. No Spoilers.From synopsis and first chapters:PLOT: Chase is a widowed narcotics detective in Houston, Texas. He's got a huge ♥, and gives his all, so he hasn't had a rel [...]


    7. Enjoyed the book, the hero has been sleep-walking through life since his wife died, when he finds himself about to lose his life, to his corrupt partner & he realizes he does want to live and that he's been so absorbed that he's pushed his friends away, shot he makes him way to the heroine's house.The heroine has a family history, her mother & grandmother have gotten married & divorced million times & she does not want to repeat history so she's never getting involved again, one [...]


    8. It was my pleasurable read. I found the plot was simple, but a fast-paced narrative and its delightful humor kept me engaged the whole way through. The heroine, her mother and her friends; they all made me laugh out loud while reading.


    9. This was a light, funny read. I enjoyed the author's style, the interaction between H/h and although the action plot was a simple one and just accesory to the romance, it worked for me. Despite the fluffy style, characters were well written -I liked the hero and the heroine's mom the most.HERO is a Warrior, a cop who's been wrongfully accussed by a bad cop trying to kill him, still emotionally numb from the death of his wife. He forces his way into a woman's house to heal and hide until he can p [...]


    10. I'm giving this book 2.5 starsIf you want a very light read that makes you laugh (whilst cringing), with a bit of "yummy-ness" thrown in and a good cop/bad cop then that's what you'll get with this one.Lacy is a divorcee whose dog of a hubby was caught on video shagging his secretary in a lift. She is kind of gagging for it and flirts with a vet/fedex man/plumber you name it. It's pretty much all she thinks about, dreams about, talks about, etc. So yes this really annoyed me and put me off her a [...]


    11. Small spoiler (not really) given by K.:'Craig writes a love scene in the shower where the hero actually does "fall on his ass" from slipping in the moment while supporting her!!! It is HOT and FUNNY and REAL LIFE! There is plenty of good and funny stuff!!!'**********Oh man, I´ve got to get this book soon!


    12. Rosalie's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsLacy McGuire has had rough go at relationships and wants nothing to do with men, thanks to her ex deadbeat boyfriend. She's happy living her life with her dog and cats. Until she runs into the ever sexy Chase. Immediately, she worries. Why would a sexy guy be on the run? From who?! What?! But as the story develops, and we find out that Chase is on the run from another cop that did something bad, and is now after Chase because of what he kno [...]


    13. Lighthearted fun romantic suspense. The hero, Chase, is a cop who has been framed for murdering another cop. He hides out with the heroine, Lacy, after her dog drags him in wet and bleeding from an attempt on his life. This is the first of a trilogy and you meet all the characters who will be in the other books but it is not heavy handed. They pretty much all have a part to play in this one. I enjoyed Lacy's crazy mother. The writing was well done as always from Christi Craig. The hero learned t [...]


    14. 9/1 - I enjoyed this book more than a number of the previous books I've read. I guess I like the idea of being trapped in my house with a possibly corrupt policeman as a romantic situation. The romance was good, the tension leading up to the romance was good too. And of course, everyone (except the bad guys) had a happy ending.(That is a ridiculous review that I shudder in embarrassment to put my name on. If I can get a hold of it from the library again, I'll read and review it again and try to [...]


    15. I had a really hard time getting into this one. Once I did I enjoyed it enough, but it was nothing memorable. I won't go and read the others by this author either. I liked Chase, I liked Lacy's house, but I didnt like Lacy really. The supporting characters weren't so great either. I think I just kept reading to find out what would happen with Chase and Jason. Was more interested in seeing that relationship work itself out.


    16. Loved this light hearted romantic suspense/comedy from the first page to the last.I adore humour in books and this fun story had plenty of that!Lacy and Chase are great together, well matched protagonists.And the cast of secondary characters definitely need their own stories.


    17. After nearly being killed by the partner who's trying to frame him, an injured Chase is on the run with no idea where to turn. But when a dog with antlers and a woman wearing nothing but a t-shirt declaring her divorced status find him, he finds himself hiding out in a house with talking appliances and cats dressed up for Christmas. In February. Either he's lost his mind, or the beautiful woman forced to take him in is completely off her rocker. Then again, she's his only chance at coming out of [...]


    18. Feel good humor and romanceVIEWER'S OPINION:I had trouble deciding between 4 and 5 stars, but I went with 5 because it “lightened my heart and brightened my day.” Some books are hard to put down due to suspense or other intense anticipation. This book is not like that. I was able to put it down, but it was enjoyable all the way through. I was laughing out loud several times and continued to chuckle over certain conversations the next day after reading the book. It’s a feel good story with [...]


    19. This book was great . It had hmmm what's the right word ?.owww I know BALANCE :) yep that's what it had :)It had the perfect amount of sass ,suspense , romance , BFF time ,angst & uhhmm of corse "adult hot bits" lol But u wana know what bits were the best ??? I know u do lol . It's when ms Craig had me laughing & horny at the same time !! She had me laughing so much at 1 point( phone call from the ex ) I was holding my crotch to stop myself pee'ing lol 's also had me holding it for other [...]


    20. Humorous, sexy, and leaves you feeling good. It's these qualities that lead me back to reading Craig. Quirky photographer, Lacy meets Chase outback by her shed and from there the madness begins. When you take two people, each with their own peccadilloes, and add in a cast of wacky friends--voila! Instant insanity and embarrassment and humor. Ever have one of those conversations with your girlfriends that you don't care strangers overhearing, but wouldn't want to admit to? Yep. Lacy manages to ge [...]


    21. I have a new shelf in my 'GR Library' - Premature Ejaculation ;) You know, for those damned annoying books that come to an end before you are expecting it.This is one of those. Ends at 82%. It's the standard story: good guy on the run hides in house with innocent (?) naïve (?) sexy-looking female. They find a mutual attraction and she believes in his innocence although he's kept her captive. But the dialogue was far too crude to be enjoyable and some of the minor characters, (the mother for exa [...]


    22. 3.5 starsThe book started a little slow for me, so I gave the first half 3 stars. But I thought the second half was really entertaining and gave it 4 stars. Overall, this was a cute story and sweet romance. Lots of humor. Mrs Craig gave just enough info on the secondary characters to make me wonder what happened to them.This book would be a great beach read.


    23. This was cute and quirky. Had a good little plot mixed in there. Lot of sexual tension, less so with the sex. I really had a good time reading it. I had been reading some more intense books lately, so this was just what I needed to lighten my mood.I will be going forward with this series.


    24. 4.5 starsSexy, fun, great heroes, lovely dialogues and a fast paced plot. What more to ask? I'm definitely going to read the next ones in the series.


    25. Very fun chick-litish story mixed with some mystery.If you are looking for a romance/mystery light read this is the series to read.


    26. this book was insanely cheesy and childish. our characters are supposed to be in their mid thirties!! the main character is divorced and was also with. failed engagement and she can't even say condom for heavens sakes. it's way over the top cheesy there were a few very funny lines but the rest of the book the humor was forced and I was slowly over almost a month trying desperately to finish this. once it got past the 52% mark it was easy to keep reading . luckily the book ends at 82% and I thank [...]



    27. I love this! This is my first book by Christie Craig and I've come to the conclusion that she is frakking AWESOME!!Summary:Lacy Maguire has become content with her life as a photographer living with her dog, Fabio, and her three cats. She also made a vow of chastity after finding out her now ex-hubby was doing his secretary. Although she's more horny than not, she is content with keeping her vow because she doesn't want to end up like her mother and grandmother who have twelve divorces between t [...]


    28. Overall rating: 4 "Grandmaw Got Run Over by a Reindeer" stars!! Triggers:Cheating: (view spoiler)[ No(hide spoiler)]Love triangle: (view spoiler)[ No(hide spoiler)]Sex with om/ow: (view spoiler)[ No(hide spoiler)]Intimate pasts: (view spoiler)[ Chase (hero) had a healthy sex life prior to his marriage to Sarah - who died from a brain tumor two years prior to the start of the book. We come to find out that he pretty much wants to die after she dies. He eventually, I think a year later? starts hav [...]


    29. So much hate. Where to begin?The book begins down that oft-traveled plot road of the hero (Chase) on the lamb, accused of a crime he didn't commit. Okay, I can handle it. I've read this plot before, more than likely I'll read it again sometime in the future. His path takes him to the door of the TSTL heroine Lacy. Here's where my hatred begins. She's seen the news, she recognizes Chase as a wanted criminal who is suspected of murder. He forces his way into her home, he's got a gun, and he handcu [...]
