      Ya aşırı güzel değildi ama okumaktan büyük bir keyif aldım ben. Kitap boyunca tek sorunum kadının kendini aşırı derecede alçaltmasıydı, yediremedim nedense. Sonunda nedenlerini bir şekilde çözdüm ama yine de kızmamak imkansız yani. Neyse sonuç olarak Chick Lit'ın kölesiyim 😂 Hikaye kötü olsa bile bir yerden tutup sevdim diyebilirdim.😂

      Mon avis en FrançaisMy English reviewJe ne m’étais pas rendu compte que j’avais lu le tome 2 et 3 il y a quelques temps et j’avoue qu’après avoir lu ce premier tome et après avoir découvert les personnages ici, je suis curieuse de relire les romans pourvoir évoluer les personnages.Je pense que cette série est vraiment parfaite quand on a envie de quelque chose de léger qui nous fasse passer un bon moment. Et c’est vrai que de temps en temps c’est quelque chose que j’aime be [...]

      It's a mark of a good writer when she can make you like a heroine who logic tells you you shouldn't like.Darcy's been a trophy wife for years. When her husband absconds with everything (and I mean EVERYTHING), I couldn't help feeling for this little gold digger. The resourcefulness she shows when John shows up the first time to repossess her Mercedes coupe just makes her that more endearing. When she figures out she has no marketable skills in a world that's become high-tech and so she has no wa [...]

      1.5 yıldız.Daha önce hiç bu kadar –çok afedersiniz- dangalak bir anne karakteri ve yaşını zerre kadar gösteremeyen bir kadın karakter okumadım. O kadar abartılı derecede saçmaydı ki karakteleri, beş yaşındaki oğlumun zeka seviyesiyle kıyaslamaya bile gittim resmen.Konu olarak kafa dağıtmak için okunacak bir roman olduğunu düşünüp, biraz gülüp eğlenirim diye elime aldım ama yok, karakterlere sinir olmaktan zerre kadar zevk alamadım. Yorum dahi yazasım yok o kad [...]

      Darcy, hmmm, she was such a trophy wife. But then again she did learn a few things early on, and I did start to like her even with her flaws. I also liked that the author made her 40! I know, so freaking old ;) But comparing to other heroines it felt refreshing.John was nice, the only issues he had was with a certain headstrong trophy wife. But who wouldn't.They meet, there is anger, she gets a job, there is drama. And oh those sparks fly.There is alsomething else, I never really got that, but s [...]

      First paragraphs: On July twenty-fifth, Darcy McDaniel lost her house, her husband, and her self-respect. Then things really went downhill.I'm very glad I picked up this book - one of the best contemporary romances I've read in a long while. Normally I don't do "chick lit", but this one was amazingly well done. Certainly it's because Darcy, our down-on-her-luck heroine, is so well written that I truly liked her as a character. As a former trophy wife who's forced to move into her parents' traile [...]

      Romantic fluff, but surprisingly good. What happens when an about-to-turn-40 rich wife returns from a week in Mexico (which her husband sent her on, as a "surprise") and finds strangers living in her house and her husband nowhere to be found? What happens when EVERYTHING you had is GONE, and you are living with your very strange parents in their trailer? And what happens when a very handsome guy is trying to repossess your Mercedes, the last thing you have left? Oh, and what if you suddenly have [...]

      It had some funny moments, but I never really grew to care too much for any of the characters. I'm just glad I read Jeremy's story before I read about him here. I didn't care for him much here. All in all, a fairly entertaining, but also kind of depressing read.

      Davvero molto carino questo primo titolo della serie Plano, Texas. Ogni tanto mi lascio tentare da autrici perfettamente sconosciute e da serie fresche e leggere, perfette per una lettura spensierata. La Graves sbarca in Italia per la prima volta con un romanzo che strizza l'occhio ad autrici come Susan E.Phillips e Lisa Kleypas: l'ambientazione texana, la calura estiva e il contrasto tra casette prefabbricate e ville lussuose inseriscono la storia in quella categoria di narrativa femminile un p [...]

      This rubbed me the wrong way!Jeremy was creepy! The heroine Darcy no. She was a gold-digger willing to do anything for money and even though she kind of grew I didn't like her or her mother. I guess this would be the chick-lit genre where all of this is okay but not for me.

      First of all, this would not be my typical book to read. I had a friend offer to send me two books from her stash. This is a modern romance all the way, and it is filled with unrealistic, enjoyable romance!Secondly, I enjoyed this book even more than I thought I would. I will warn any reader of this book that there are some steamy sex scenes and they unfortunately occur between two unmarried people, but I suppose I did kind of overlook that portion of the book because it was so romantic! I loved [...]

      Darcy annoyed me so much I could barely finish this book!! She grew up in a trailer for goodness sakes but you would think she has always lived in a mansion. It just didn't make sense. Her father's sudden attention at the end was great, however, it seemed somewhat rushed and not fully developed. In fact, all of the characters, including Darcy, seemed to need a little more character developement. I just never got the feeling I knew enough about them. And the whole thing with the husband leaving ( [...]

      One of the funniest and most captivating books I've read in a long time. It was romantic, sweet and in some way very incentive. On the last page of her book J.Graves writes, "I require all my characters to have one quality: No matter how hard they're hit, they get back up again." And this is what I loved the most about Darcy: she didn't give up. I have read a couple of reviews where the readers expressed their negative attitude towards Darcy. I adored her!!! I liked the fact that she was differe [...]

      The spark between John and Darcy is right there from the beginning. This story is charming, full of wit and enjoyable situation that guarantees to at least make you smile broadly (if not chuckling in delight). It is such a fun read - and I haven't been this entertained with romance genre for quite awhile. One thing I love is that in this story, the hero-heroine in their 40's - which is like "a breathe of fresh air" for me, in category in which usually the heroine is like under 25 and the hero is [...]

      I waffle between feeling sorry for this gal and thinking she is a stupid bimbo but I stayed up late to finish so my rating is 3.5* Trophy wife Darcy loses everything and ex-cop John comes to repossess her car.

      Another romance for my class project! Not bad. Sexy repo man helps woman take control of her life after her husband leaves her with nothing. Silly at times, but I liked the characters.

      Jane Graves fait partie de mes auteures chouchous, je me lance dans ses livres en toute confiance et je suis rarement déçue. Sa force réside surtout dans ses personnages qui, s'ils sont parfois un peu caricaturaux, sont toujours attachants.Ici, l'histoire et les personnages sont rocambolesques mais j'ai apprécié de suivre le parcours de Darcy, qui s'est habituée depuis son mariage à vivre dans un certain luxe, mais qui atterrit brutalement quand elle se rend compte que son mari l'a quitt [...]

The author does an awesome job describing each of their personalities. The whole time while reading the book, I kept saying “I can totally see this being turned into a movie.

      Poor Darcy. She’s been dumped, and quite humiliatingly — her husband sold the house and absconded with all of their money while she was on vacation. Now, she has nowhere to go other than back to her parents’ trailer home, her beloved car is getting repossessed, and she finds out that not only did he leave with all of their money, he also took some of his employer’s.What a fall from the lofty heights she’d perched at, with her mansion and her luxuries and her cosmetic surgeries… Which [...]
