unreasonable during the entire course of the bookite frankly Ellen was a bitchThe ILY came waaaay too To Defy a Sheikh uickly The entirety of this story takes place in less than a week A deep meaningful lasting love doesn t come thatickly I m sorry It just doesn t Giving it a try is good after a week Declaring your love after a few days is hokey and ridiculous For grown The Highlander and the Wolf Princess (Legend of the Faol, ups anywaysThe whole neighbor in love with Ellen s pop star brother thing confused me Apparently there was some kind of back story with these two but it was never fully explained From what I DIDnderstand the neighbor was also Whiteout (Threes Allowed, uite the bitch She is pregnant meets a famous pop star at a party one night has immediate sex with him in the laundry room they have a short flingntil she posts his name on her blog which pisses him off he goes back to LA End of And she has the nerve to be pissed of at HIM What I feel like I m missing something When the guy tries to come back and realizes that he has actual true feelings for a woman who is preggers with another man s child and she rejects him and makes him beg That s just dumb I had a few minor issues but I don t want to go on Suffice it to say this was not a good The Princes Ultimate Deception (Monte Carlo Affairs, un for moi I tend to have heroine issues but this chick was pretty bad I wanted the whole family atmosphere to be prevalent I wanted her kid to be involved in the story maybe bonding with Caleb There was some of that but I felt like the kid was pushed out of the story pretty often Not much of the daily grind and I hate when books with kids do that There was a convenient weekend sleepover that tookp about half of the book Must be nice this mommy saysOkay I m done I didn t like this one But I have really enjoyed the other three books I ve read by this author so I think this was just a fluke Ellen Callahan is a lawyer and single mother who could do without all the current drama surrounding her twin megastar brother Jamie and his girlfriend who lives next door What she resented even was the bodyguard Jamie dispatched when the paparazzi started getting out of hand Caleb Clark fresh out of the Army and Ira thought this would be an easy assignment but he hadn t yet come Breaking the Governesss Rules up against a woman as stubbornly independent as Ellen Nor had he expected it would be so hard to resist mixing pleasure and business For a time Ellen s stubbornness started to wear a little thin but the I learned about her past relationships I began to warmp to her character She had many layers and had learned to be self sufficient as her brother garnered most of the attention even when they were growing The Christmas Children (The Mellow Years up and her ex husband was a piece of work She had no appetite for being in another relationship and when Caleb emerges she s pretty comfortable about considering a no commitment sex only arrangement He on the other hand wasn t in the market and had a reputation for being footloose but not really a player Caleb s very sexy and clever but she had him at helloIt was enjoyable to have the tales turned for a change with Ellen not wanting a commitment and Caleb really hoping for much The sexual tension between these two was even better complicating their lives in ways they never saw coming I liked that we were able to have both of their points of view present. Urity guard to protect her from a prying press that will stop at nothing to digp dirt on him But when the tanned and toned Caleb Clark shows p at her door Ellen might just have to plead the fifth Back home after a deployment in Ira and looking for work as a civilian Caleb signs on as Ellen’s bodyguard After combat in the hot desert sun this job should be a breeze But guarding the willful beauty is hard.
ALONG CAME TROUBLE is book two in the Camelot series If you haven t read the first book in the series HOW TO MISBEHAVE fear not The two books seem so different that I don t necessarily think you need to read one in order to nderstand the other Both are good as any other standalonesEllen Callahan is a driven woman who is a single mother and lawyer She is tough as nails and Caleb Clark seems to enjoy poking fun at the attractive woman every chance he gets When Ellen s brother the international pop star hires a body guard to keep her and her kid safe from the paparazzi Caleb turns out to be that special man Lucky girlEllen and Caleb start off on the wrong foot Ellen is peeved and wants Caleb out and away from her but the persistent Caleb enjoys making fun at the The Firefighters Christmas Reunion uptight woman and soon he is able to break down her barriers For the first half of this book I found it hard to get through I wonder if it was some sort of funk I was in or if the pacing was just slower Knox spends a lot of time on dialogue in this book and while it can be entertaining I think at times it can go on for too long The conversations that Ellen and Caleb have are the way they get to know each other Caleb begins to chip away at Ellenntil she breaks into a smile so it s rewarding to see an author who spends so much time on dialogue and the romance But I also wanted something to keep the pace going Sometimes it lagged and affected my enjoyment of the bookIt picked The Life of Corgnelius and Stumphrey up though and I was glad to see the layering that Knox is so well known for I just adore the way she is able to add so many dimensions to her characters It really adds so much to the romance making it stronger and memorableI ll be looking forward to reading the third book FLIRTING WITH DISASTER From the blurb it seems that this one might just be another keeper from KnoxARC provided by publisher 4 Stars Along comes Ruthie Knox with another great book More fun times in Camelot with the scrumptious CalebYUM Review to follow ARC courtesy of Random House Publishing via NetGalley Enjoyed this in a completely different way to How To Misbehave HTM prompted a visceral reaction this was of a sitting back in awe of the skill reaction I cannot write this sort of layering for the life in me the different elements all coming together to make onenified whole and it totally slayed me reading this Also absolutely loved Ellen and Henry I know some people will find Ellen too this or too that but I m not that kind of person I won t hold a romance heroine to a different standard than a romance hero and all of Ellen s worries and struggles rang completely true to me Am tired of stories where women fall all over themselves to immediatly give in to some guy without any reservations It s good to see a bit of a caution for a changeFantastic book Is Ruthie actually capable of writing a bad one Review originally posted wwwsweptawaybyromanceblogspotcom5 BIG starsAlong Came Trouble is the second book in the Camelot trilogy that features three siblings Amber Caleb and Katie Clark Amber and Tony s story was told in How to Misbehave Katie and Sean s story will be told in the The Amish Midwife (Lancaster Courtships, upcoming Flirting with Disaster out in June and Along Came Trouble tells the story of Caleb and EllenI have been trying to comep with something that I didn t love about Caleb Clark s character and honestly I can t think of anything He is an ex military hero that has returned home from Ira to help his

to deal with Thankfully this author redeems Ellen s character just in the knick of time and all is made right by the turn of the last pageThis is a superb book that has a little bit of everything Heartache drama and family dynamics all mixed with aniue blend of humor that perfectly balances the heaviness of the subject matter The chemistry between Caleb and Ellen is completely combustible and this author pens some of the best love scenes currently being written Caleb patiently and sweetly woos.

Ed so I could be the voyeur while they figured things out Be prepared for some very steamy times though when they do decide to come together The volatile romance between Jamie and his girlfriend Carly added another level of excitement and humor as he worked to get out of the doghouse Ellen s son Henry added an interesting element as he played an important role in the story Of course his father added to the drama and not always in a good way I liked how the secondary characters were woven into the story in a way that didn t distract but augmented Ellen and Caleb s relationship I enjoyed Ellen and Caleb s story so much that I rolled right into the next book in the series It is complex aggravating at times funny and had moments that tugged at my heart I received an ARC from NetGalley This book was so so good and that s coming from someone who doesn t even like contemporary romance in general With relatable characters despi Ruthie Knox is soon becoming a favourite and this book is all Caleb the returning soldier responsible son brother and now a security expert His new assignment gives him the biggest trouble Ellen a single mother of a two year old boy and sister of super star Jamie who is in the news because of his romance with the pregnant neighbour Carly Caleb is supposed to well secure Ellen s house but she is having none of itThe heroine Ellen is a tougher nut and hard to like Her inability to give in got on my nerves despite the fact that she had her reasons a marriage to a drunk philander plus growing The Amish Nanny (Brides of Amish Country, up with a mother who only looked at her brother but despite all of that she could be a pest She was obsessive about her control and doing things her own way even when those decision were wrong Sheses the hero for sex atleast she tells herself it is just that while he wants he want to romance her take her to dinner know her son I loved Caleb s negotiating his way to get a compromiseAs I said before this book is all about the hero Can t wait for the next book ARC provided by the publisher through Netgalley This was a sweet contemporary romance If this book would have been candy I think it would have been 70 percent dark chocolate It was a sweet sexy and fun read It s going to be fantastic though when we finally do it Fireworks are going to go off Pyrotechnic kissing Your hair will probably catch on fireShe laughed and some internal switched flipped from Maybe to DefinitelyEllen Callahan is a divorced single mom loved that who grew The Healer (Borderland Brides, up in the shadow of her brother and married an abusive cheating alcoholic To say that she has walls would be annderstatement Add Caleb super sweet hot sexy guy in charge of her protection and sparks fly It started off great and I awwwed over Caleb a lot My only problem with this book was Ellen She is so damn stubborn and treats him like an indulgence I get it but I still didn t like it I think it is a general problem with contemporary romances and their story lines Everything is going great then something silly happens and they spend a chunk of time apart during which they realize they love each other They make The Slayer (Time Raiders up and decides to get married A very sweet HEA but I wish these couple could get to spend time after their big fallout before getting engaged But maybe that s just me I want to thank Random House Publishing Group and Netgalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review When Ellen Callahan s brother Jamie a famous pop singer falls for Ellen s neighbour Carly the paparazzi descend To protect both Ellen and Carly Jamie hires security Caleb Clark has spent fifteen years in the military police so knows what it takes to keep clients safe Headingp his own business Camelot Security Caleb may be a security specialist but keeping someone safe can be a whole lot of troubleRuthie Knox is one of my favourite contemporary romance authors This is book 2 in her new Camelot series but can be read as a standalone Ellen once married to a cheating alcoholic who controlled her life appreciates her freedom So when Caleb comes along trying to protect both her and Carly Ellen feels her hard won independence threatened Which brings me to the one major problem I had with this story Ellen Rarely if ever will a heroine make a story for me But she sure can break it And this heroine came this close to ruining this story for me Rather than bore you with my rant I ve spoiler tagged what I didn t like about the heroine view spoilerThe heroine Ellen is one I like least Nasty and bitchy for no real reason Arguing and fighting about the small stuff And the important stuff like deadbolts and alarm systems She s got a two year old for crying out loud Who wouldn t say yes to having that security installed with a toddler around Instead of taking it out on her absent pop star sensation brother who caused all the problems she takes it out on the guy hired to do his job and keep her safe The author has given a reason why Ellen is like this She s afraid of being controlled again like she was with her ex husband This makes sense but she was too harsh for too long at the wrong people hide spoiler. Er than he imagined and Caleb can’t resist the temptation to mix business with pleasure With their desires growing ndeniable by the day Ellen and Caleb give in to an evening of steamy passion But will they ever be able to share than just a one night stand Includes a special message from the editor as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles How to Misbehave Flirting with Disaster and About Last Night.
