Read for Readers of Romance Summer reading challenge #13 title read and reviewed in Sppring challenge.
Rated 4.5 stars
Jack Travis leads the uncomplicated life of a millionaire Texas playboy. He makes no commitments, he loves many women, he lives for pleasure. But no one has ever truly touched his heart or soul. Until one day, a woman appears on his doorstep with fury on her face and a baby in her arms. It seems Jack is the father and this woman is the baby’s aunt. The real mother has abandoned the child to her more responsible sister. And now, Jack is being called upon to take responsibility for the first time in his life.
So, I have a minor issue with the story. (it's very minor) When ella first meets Jack Travis he gives her the time of day. Any Houston CEO would never have seen her, much less let her make accusations in his office, in front of his secretary.
Other than that, I loved it. Jack was so smooth and cool. He was super hot, and I loved that he was into Luke!! Ella was cool. She was pretty self assured and I hated Dane! What a wuss! I love these Travises.
I figured out the twist but who cares. It's not about the twist, it's about the folks. It's about the journey. I gotta say, Ms. Kleypas writes great emotional journey stories. Can't wait for Joe's story.
Makes me wonder what were memorable wedding entrances you've all seen? Please comment. That'd be great.

I totally love, Harry Potter. I've read all the books and scene all the movies. I used to really like little Daniel, but he's not growing on me. I've always felt that Rupert was underappreciated. Ron is a much more full character in the books, but the movies have him acting like a real ninny. All the Weasley's are so cool. I love, LOVE Fred and George!!! Ginny, is way cool in the books too.
Now, as it comes to the actors, I kinda am over Daniel Radcliffe, and love Rupert. We don't see him very often in interviews and we never see the other characters. But, Emma does interview way, Waaaay better than Daniel. I find her to be so poised, and witty. I really hope that she goes the way of the Jodie Fosters who don't get all trippy! (Yes, Trippy. that's the technical term for drug addicted or end up in Porn or something.)
Here is an interview she did this week with David Letterman. She's soooooooo cute.

Me, my niece Mary Beth and her son Alec. His Mimi was doing the decorations for the party, and he reminded her that a party NEEDS party hats. So, he "helped" decorate hats. Yea! We know how to do it up right.Family Portrait. That's a pretty good looking bunch.
So enjoy this little trip back to yesteryear. If you need a wing man(woman)then today Carpoolqueen is it.

We (my brothers and Sisters-in-law and my husband and I) threw them a party. Mostly it was family and some of their friends from church. But it was fun.
My Brother (with microphone) and sister, with their daughters and son-in-law and 3 grandbabies. He was a great Master of Ceremonies. My sister-in-law (kinda weird to write the "in-law" part) works at a florists, woo hoo. She was so great about getting invites and mailing them out. She worked so hard to decorate and it was so great.
My brother Dave and his family worked on music. This is my brother and his wife and his son's girlfriend. They are listening to my nephews play the piano and guitar. He came up with a great playlist of music through the ages, and his sons played some music even some songs they wrote. :::Ahh!:::
I baked cakes. My husband made a great slideshow of photos from the past 50 years. It was so superbitude!!
The White cake was Carrot cake on the top layer and French Vanilla on the bottom layer. The chocolate was milk chocolate. Yum!!
My daughter and I are getting our "Party On" in this picture.
This is my nephew playing piano, and my nieces daughter is "helping" him play. She's a "Helper".
This is Alandra again. She's
getting her "Party On" too.
Yep! We had fun!
