    " I have mixed emotions about this story. I really liked the main character, Liz. Her actions seemed totally justified to me. I had a hard time caring about Ethan. I felt the author was trying to show his point of view as being an acceptable response. Here's the thing, it is easy to say 12 years later how you would have handled a situation but that probably would not have been your response. He says he would have married her and wanted to raise their child together. Sure he's 35 now but at 23? People want to be righteous about the father has to know but men have 9 months to get used to the idea. Women have the 3 minutes the test takes. Speaking as someone who "did the right thing" and told the father and spent 15 years regretting it because he made my son and my life hell, I say each situation is different. You want to think everything will work out but I wish I never told him. One thing I enjoyed about this story was the different perspectives it showed and the complex relationships between the characters. However, I don't buy that Fool's Gold is that small of a town. They have a community college, kid's camp, and a bike school. California small towns must be different from Texas small towns. I am also not sure at 18 Liz could have supported herself and a baby on a waitress salary in San Francisco. The cost of living is supposed to be really high there and daycare for a newborn is crazy expensive. "

    " So, I read this book and I think it is actually really, really good. It does include some sexual erotica (hahahaha, awkward) but I think it kind makes things more interesting ;) I really, really love Susan Mallery books. One of the reasons is because of her difference from others and I like it. :) "

    " More like 2 1/2 stars but much better than I expected after reading earlier reviews. The hero really really was a jerk and none of the explanations really explained that away. It reminded me a lot of The Duke by Gaelen Foley -- he treated her, in oh so many ways, like noblemen treated the "other" women in their lives. But Mallery is a terrific writer: I defy anyone to not finish one of her books and I ended up liking it a lot. "

    " Disappointed. First time I did not like the male character in a romance. "
