Story was very good, lack editingI really loved the story However, the flow of the story was rough, it needed a lot of editing I had to re read several passages because the change was so abrupt that did not make sense.

Liked this one eventhan the first of this author s books I read yesterday Definitely will readof her work Fast read, enjoyable Nice pace. Wow I m a fan What a good story, start to finish The characters were well developed The story had interesting and exciting twists and turns, a good romance and plenty of steam.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book I couldn t put it down I love nearly every character in this book but especially Patrick and Clay They were such adorable young men and I just wanted to squeeze them tight Kate s world is turned upside down by discovering her dead Husband s infidelity and that he left her with no financial safety net She starts to build her life back up again for her and her boys She decides to have a one night stand with none other than Randall Johnson Randall is a hot, arrogant CEO of RJ Enterprises He meets Kate and sparks fly But at first Kate turns him down but his curiosity gets the better of him, when she asks if his offer of a date is still open Kate did my head in sometimes though blowing hot and cold but I understood why she didn t want to get to close She is fantastic and a brilliant mother to her two boys I loved her sassy side that she showed Randall And I loved how he bantered back with her Randall can t understand how Kate got under his skin She seemed to get past all his defences, when no other woman could He showed her a side that no one got to see and I loved that vulnerable side of him All he needed was the love of the right woman Even though he told Kate that he was a bad man , he was nothing of the sort I loved him pretty much from the beginning I don t think he realised how sweet, caring and wonderful he really is and Kate points it how to him and shows him and how her two boys show him How they make him feel human. Kate Chilton is a widowed mother trying to survive the death of her husband and reignite her passion for Engineering Randall Johson is the owner of RJ Enterprise and has a lot of irons in the fire One quick meeting between them, a refused dinner invitation and then the discovery that her marriage was not all that it seemed to be, spark the beginning of a passionate and tumultuous relationship The fire between them is undeniable The battle of will is entertaining And the ways in which he can make her blood boil are unending Add in 2 easily impressionable boys and a couple of scorned business associates then you have the makings of excitement, laughter and a bit of danger.I really enjoyed this story very much Being Nancy Herkness debut novel it was surprisingly fun to read She has been a favorite of mine for a while and I love being able to read her 1st It left a few questions unanswered and I will be looking at her other early works to see if those are answered. A Bridge to Love received THREE stars A good book that could ve been great if section breaks were used A scene would end on one line and a new one immediately began on the next I was CONSTANTLY thrown out of the story, having to reorient myself of who was speaking and where the speaker was The only thing that didn t make me thrown the book against the wall was the relationship between Kate and Randall I adored them The novel gained stars for these items gained for The book caught my interest in first five pages gained for I thought about the book when I was forced to set it down and re enter society gained for I was sad when the book ended I wantedThe novel failed to gain stars for these items NO STAR gained for There were no info dumps, poor writing, or copy edit mistakes that jerked me out of the story NO STAR gained for That s it I m hooked on this author I will automatically buy anything s he writes.
