Is it too late to call social services for three kids who in 1993 are being raised by a bitter, neglectful father after their selfish mother left them for another man? The bitter, neglectful father also does the rodeo circuit because it's fun, pays a lot of money, and keeps him away from his kids who remind him of his wife and failed marriage.

The bitter, neglectful father also does the rodeo circuit because it's fun, pays a lot of money, and keeps him away from his kids who remind him of his wife and failed marriage. The bitter neglectful father hates the virgin heroine (who is the sister of the man his wife ran away with), but he has to rely on her to take care of his kids when he lands in the hospital with a severe concussion. I guess I'll have to chalk up his subsequent behavior to the head injury, because suddenly he finds himself attracted to heroine. He also decides he needs to move his kids to DianaPalmerville so he can manage a ranch there instead of following the rodeo. He even starts to rethink his decision to bar their mother from seeing her children - but that's a bridge too far until the eldest runs away. But I'm getting ahead of myself. The kids were rude and rudderless and the eldest thought nothing of losing the heroine's cat while they were staying with her. The hero makes things worse by marrying the heroine without clearing the air about their mother or making them feel secure. Threats of military school? Really, dad of the year? You're impossible and I don't see what the heroine saw in you at all except you're taller than she is in heels. *sigh* They get their happy ending when the heroine uses her brown belt in something to kick and karate chop the men menacing the eldest boy - earning his respect. The hero already knows he has a doormat who is 15 years younger than him and willing to put up with his temper and poor parenting. The selfish mother (who turned her runaway kid away on the phone) finally comes to visit a couple of months later. She's now pregnant with the family she wants not the one she walked out on. Gross.

    I don't know why I do this to myself. Unrealistic characterizations all around. Plus not as concrete as I like my stories to be. Got this in a trilogy at the UBS and I was bored I guess.

    I did not like this book. She was given a raw deal with him. She is going to have all the work and none of the joy of having her own family because he has 3 already. I hated that! Even his ex wife who left her own kids get to have more and the heroine is left without anything but the leftovers from the ex. I have only read this book once and I would not even reread it.

    Once again, I found the story too short for any real development of feelings between the characters. What made it seem especially unrealistic was how how Melody loved Guy after the way he treated her. Love doesn't just come that deeply, or that intensely that fast. That aside, it was an okay read.

    A little bit confusing at first. Mostly because Emmett hated Melody all of a sudden and that hate turns into love and I think it's kind of funny. But I liked the element of children in this story. So cute. Too bad the story went too soon so it's not really my favorite. A little bit confusing at first.

    Great book by Diana Palmer Emmett tough as nails can't resist the pull that Melody Cartman has on him. He tries to resist her because he was scorn from a woman but once she opens his eyes that it wasn't her fault what happened to him he started seeing her in a different light. The kid's loved her the two younger ones at least no the older one until he finds himself in trouble these two where made for each other Great book by Diana Palmer Emmett tough as nails can't resist the pull that Melody Cartman has on him.

    Real Life Romance This is a cute story about letting go of the past, forgiveness, and love. It's one of the few romance books I've read where children don't magically disappear because the adults want intimacy, which really makes it believable. The hero and heroine both make mistakes, but have the best of intentions and work to overcome their issues. The very end made me laugh too.

    I felt like this was a slightly more modern DP. H wasnt quite an arse and he only occasionally smoked ;) There was a large age diff - h was 20 and H was in his 30s - seemed like late 30s. And boy did we get hit over the head about her being young. Calling her 'little one' constantly, plenty of emphasis on her virginity and his protectiveness. I liked that she wasn't a doormat; in fact, she seemed much more mature than he gave her credit for. I felt like this was a slightly more modern DP.

    I'm happy that Emmet did get his own story. Cause he and his children were funny as heck in Case of the Missing Secretary. Also by the magnificent Diana Palmer.

    2,5-3 stars (view spoiler)[ I don't think this book was the worst ever (not even worst Palmer) but CPS should've kept an eye on Emmett. He's not a great dad and to Guy (once he suddenly decides he wants Melody) he was just awful. At one point (like 80% into the book) Emmett wonders if he knows his children at all and no, he doesn't. Then he goes threatening Guy with military school and tells Melody how great he himself turned out after that school. Did he though?

Then he goes threatening Guy with military school and tells Melody how great he himself turned out after that school. Did he though? Oh and when there's a misunderstanding between Melody and Guy near the end, Emmett promises to take care of it and doesn't. For a whole damn day. That's how great he is as a father and how much he actually cares about his son. If this book showed anything it's that Emmett's children come second to Emmett. He wants something so he does it, f**k their feelings if they dare to think differently. I don't remember when exactly Emmett was left by his wife but my guess is the kids were never really raised properly. So good on Emmett and Adell (Emmett's ex-wife). Ah, Adell, another "great" parent. She didn't love her kids enough to even contact some authorities to gain partial custody or at least visitation. Then she decided she wants to have a new baby (maybe she'll do some parenting with this one and won't leave it feeling worthless?). Then, when Guy is obviously feeling bad living with Emmett, tells her he gets blamed for things he didn't do, she just tells him sorry, I have a new baby on the way and can't take you?! FFS woman, he talked to you for the first time in at least MONTHS, don't you think he wouldn't call if he didn't feel like he needed to? It was disgusting to me, sorry. Her new husband doesn't look good in this either since he apparently didn't mind that three kids were left without their mother, without any contact with her. Melody clearly cared about Guy, Amy and Polk (especially Guy) more than either of the kids' parents. She's probably the best thing that could happen to them. Oh and as a bonus Adell's new husband is Melody's brother. It really it yucky. (hide spoiler)]

    Easy read, strong family issues I can understand those who had problems with this book...anyone who has been through family problems, either as a child or as a parent, might identify too much with the characters to be comfortable with the story. I enjoyed the story even though I had a difficult time comprehending how Emmett jumped from jerk to Mr. Wonderful in the story. Guess a knock on the head can work wonders.

There is also a spot where a cat is turned loose by a vengeful child...spoiler alert - it is returned. This publisher is notorious for renaming and republishing every so many years. Knowing I his I am cautious and read the samples...if it sounds familiar, I pass. The other downside to the author is by dragging up early works - a reader gets a poor opinion of the writer’s skill...the sample at the end of this work is a key example of this. After reading it, there is no way I would pick up that novel or others - if I were not a fan of Diana’s current novels. I think I have read high school stories with better skills than the sample exhibited. Diana should really object to it being attached to this story. In closing, I would recommend this book, but not if you have past family issues - it might hit too close to home.

    Two Diana Palmer stars. 1 1/2 in the real world. Melody & Emmett were introduced in a previous book. He hates her because she helped her brother run off with Emmett's wife. She's terrified of him because he's big, gruff and hates her. He's got three terrors of children. Somehow he got custody. Seems his ex didn't exactly fight for them. The kids are hellions and split their time between wreaking havoc and watching tv. Sometimes they stop to eat.

He hates her because she helped her brother run off with Emmett's wife. She's terrified of him because he's big, gruff and hates her. He's got three terrors of children. Somehow he got custody. Seems his ex didn't exactly fight for them. The kids are hellions and split their time between wreaking havoc and watching tv. Sometimes they stop to eat. For some reason the two youngest take to Melody - mostly because she feeds them and lets them watch an "educational television station". Emmett hits his head which seems to knock some sense into him. There's some lusting. Some "don't be afraid, your breasts are awesome and they're supposed to do that" - it is DP Virginville, after all. The reader also gets, in no particular order: a wedding, a runaway cat, a runaway boy, a pregnant ex, and a kick in the balls. The reader also gets a brief discussion about birth control. Emmett wants to use condoms. Melody prefers the pill. This is a rare Jacobsville book that doesn't end in the heroine pregnant.

    It kills me when details aren’t consistent but in most books it’s spaces them out. This book the inconsistency is in the same paragraph! Example: “I lost my parents several years apart, but it was pretty rough just the same. Especially my mother.” He was silent for a moment. “She killed herself. Dad had only been dead six months when she was diagnosed with leukemia. She refused treatment, went home and took a handful of barbiturates that they’d given her for pain” Last time I checked several year It kills me when details aren’t consistent but in most books it’s spaces them out.

    Divorce Is hard on everyone but especially kids. Eleven year old Guy was one of those kids. But his Dad, Emmitt, is having it just as hard swearing he would never give a woman a chance to hurt him again. Until he meets Melody. His reaction to her mystifies him and alienates Guy. Ah but Diana Palmer knows just how to make it work.

    too much fill in to make the book longer. Skipped almost a third of the book, especially the too many sex scenes. Really good books can be written without the explicit sex details.
