Book Review "Lip Service" by Susan Mallery

Book Description:

Who wants to marry my daughter?

Skye Titan's wealthy father thinks he can still dictate his daughter's choice in men. Now widowed and a single mother, Skye isn't the yes-girl she once was. Especially since the love of her life is back in Texas after eight long years. He won't like the answers to the questions he's asking. About why she left him at the altar. And about her eight-year-old daughter.

Former Navy SEAL Mitch Cassidy comes home to find nearly everything different. His wounds from battle have changed the way people treat him. His cattle ranch is suddenly organic. But time hasn't touched his desire for Skye—or the sting of her betrayal. Forget lip service. He’s asking that luscious mouth of hers to reveal the truth. But will Mitch be able to put the past aside to help Skye get out from under her father's thumb -- and help himself recover from a broken heart?

This is the 2nd in the series by Susan Mallery. This story is about Skye and I am SO hooked on this author. I couldn't wait to see how this one would turn out. There are some unfinished stories so I can't wait for 'wish' to come true on PaperbackSwap ( so I can finish up this series.

Happy Reading!

"Under Her Skin" by Susan Mallery

Book Review: "Under Her Skin" by Susan Mallery

Book Description:
Lexi Titan can just see the headlines. All of Titanville will be buzzing. Not that she has any other choice. Faced with exactly thirty days to come up with two million dollars, she is out of options. Marry Cruz Rodriguez or lose everything; the successful day spa she built herself, her tyrant of a father's respect. And the long-standing competition with her sisters for the family business.
Cruz has money, success, smoldering good looks; everything but the blue blood needed to become a true member of Texas society. If Lexi agrees to be his fiancée for six months, lending him her famous father's influence and connections, he'll hand her a check on the spot. And in six months they'll go their separate ways.
But neither one is prepared for their long-ago shared passion to throw a wrench into what would seem to be the perfect deal…
This is a 1st in a new trilogy by Susan Mallery. I really enjoy her writing. Some people compare this author to Debbie Macomber or Susan Wiggs. I think that is pretty accurate. "Under Her Skin" is about Lexi, one of 3 sisters. The storyline and characters will keep you reading until the end.
Happy Reading!
