I love reading and as of now that is fiction only. Love all genres except horror and for the past few years, been gorging on romance. Thrillers are my first love and add some romance to it then all the more better.
Can't Buy Me Love - Molly O'Keefe A pretty impressive start to a new series & Molly's single title debut.
I really felt for Tara Jean Sweet, she was so messed up by her past and the life she had led, that she was her own worst enemy.
Luc was such a great guy, who was facing the potential end of his hockey career as well as having to face memories of his father he had tried to forget. I loved their romance and the real sexual pull between them even before thy hit the sheets or car in their case ;)

For Luc his struggling with his ageing body and refusing to admit he was done with a sport he loved was tied to his father who was a horrible abusive man but who had been a saviour to Tara Jean. This conflict was portrayed wonderfully. Luc just wanted out and since Tara Jean had been cast in the role of a gold-digger he wanted her gone as well. How these two go from being enemies to more is a great journey filled with growth for both of them.

His sister Victoria, god I disliked her sometimes, since she was so beaten down by life, sometimes I felt bad for her, but at the end I wanted to say Bravo to her, since it seemed she had realized her self-worth. I am looking forward to her book.
Victoria's husband committed suicide after being found guilty of running a Ponzi scheme, leaving her broke, having to pay of his debts and with a son to raise. She was ill-equipped to handle it all because first she grew up with a hateful & to escape that became a wife, so in essence she wasn't such a strong character so she again manages to get into a tangle with Tara Jean's criminal ex who uses her as a tool to get some money. The inheritance matters to her, not so much to Luc, it is her security blanket. I do wish I come to like her more in her book.



Thanks so much Molly for the ARC!!!!!!!!!!
