    13. Paranormal romances will probably always be my favorite, but when I need a break from vampires and witches, I like a nice contemporary romance I really enjoyed Far from Perfect, the first book in the Love From the Heartland series because it was simply a sweet romance with some heat between two very, very stubborn people I enjoyed the hero of that novel, Noah, the wounded veteran This second novel follows Noah s sister, Paige, who s bummed out after losing her first job She shows up in Perfect, [...]

    16. An excellent follow up novel to Far From Perfect I loved Ryan and Paige, and loved that former characters Ceejay and Noah were still prominently featured in it as well as Ted and even Aunt Jenny Ryan was a terrific character he was lost and had so much pain from his past that you just wanted to wrap your arms around him His nightly ritual in the beginning of the book was heartbreaking To think he had been doing this for nearly three years and still survived somehow was sad yet encouraging It sho [...]

    19. 3.5 The Difference a Day Makes was a nice contemporary romance featuring a wounded warrior hero and his road back from the very edge of almost losing it all The writing is good, the story well developed, the steam level on the low side for what I normally read I d feel comfortable loaning this to my mom but overall I enjoyed it This is the second book in this series I ve read and both books are comparable in terms of quality and heat While I d read this another book in this series again if it we [...]

    20. A nice extension of the first one I like the spin with dealing with veterans although it s really hard to picture these tough military cowboy types as touchy feely as she portrays them I also wonder about the wisdom of how she portrays veterans as just needing the love of a good woman to get them through PTSD She doesn t really say that, but it s sort of a fluffy approach to something fairly serious However, it is after all a romance novel so it s just a fun read.

    21. AWESOME BOOK, AWESOME SERIESAfter reading Barbara Longley s first book in the Perfect, Indiana series, Far From Perfect, I immediately had to read this one Both are AWESOME, and I ll start the 3rd book in the series this evening I love the characters I love the business and that they only hire veterans The books are fast paced and heartwarming I laugh, and I cry for happy I ll be checking out her other books.
