Resigned to renting out a guesthouse in suburban Virginia to be closer to his year-old son, Butler sends out amateur videotapes to stations that might want a soccer commentator, but he barely has the money to make rent. Director Gabriele Muccino, an Italian filmmaker hand-picked by Will Smith to stultify audiences with The Pursuit Of Happyness and Seven Pounds , cares most about Butler growing up and bonding with his freckle-faced son, which is by far the least exciting or surprising direction the film could have gone.

She clearly wants nothing to do with him but there is that zing between them. Then, on a cold, rainy, February San Franciscan night, in the court yard of the Pacific Pier Building, he sees a little dog cowering in a corner.
Sadie notices as well and between the two of them, they coax the little thing out of her hiding place. They both fall instantly in love with this little sweetheart that Sadie names Lollipop.
So the only thing to do is agree to co-parent her. But both of these two have built up such walls around themselves that they make it nearly impossible to break through them, especially Sadie. Her past and the way her mother is broke my heart. Caleb seemed like it was a bit easier for him to admit his feelings. But his three sisters who love their little brother to pieces, get involved and nearly ruin it for him. You make life more. A book that will steal your heart, make you smile, make you swoon, and give you all the butterflies you can handle.
I want to add in here a couple of secondary characters that won my heart. First, Ivy, who owns the taco truck at the Pacific Pier Building. He lives and works in Idaho and seems like he is a bit of a cowboy. We all know I have a thing for cowboys! It seems like there might be a story there! One I am hoping with all my fingers and toes crossed, that Jill is going to explore in the near future. So, yes, I loved this book. But I might possibly say that with every Jill Shalvis review. But I mean it every time. Each book can be read as a stand alone but they do have recurring characters.
Every book will win your heart and make you smile. A Jill Shalvis book always makes your day just a little bit brighter.

So far, each chapter in the series has been a little whimsical and maybe a bit quirky.
However, Sadie and Caleb are complete opposites. Their attraction to each other is like mixing oil and water. In Sadie, the reader sees someone struggling not only with a haunted past, but with some bitterness, and the immature need to rebel, still trying to shock and offend.

Of all the books in this series, to date, this one feels a little more serious. Shalvis always has an uncanny knack for addressing uncomfortable topics, while keeping the tone light.

Her humor always offsets the heaviness in any given situation. This time, however, the whimsy, charm, humor, felt forced and often falls a bit flat.
Despite that, the story is still a very compelling read. I am glad, however, that Shalvis addressed a topic rarely explored in romance novels of this caliber. Although I found this couple to be more of a challenge than most, their happily ever after may have been the most rewarding, in some ways. Perceptions, expectations, family, acceptance, and forgiveness are adeptly woven into the story. Caleb and Sadie defy all the odds against them and at the end of the day, this is what makes this book stand out. It almost felt a little like the black sheep of the family, going off on a different course from the others.
However, I still think the outcome was worth the extra patience this couple seemed to require. Of course I was, as always, happy to see this couple, and Lollipop, get their long overdue happily ever after. View all 12 comments. Jan 21, DJ Sakata rated it it was amazing Shelves: adult-contemporary-romance , humor. Favorite Quotes: Sadie listened with half her brain, the other half wandering off. Sometimes life really bit a girl on the ass. Thankfully she had enough padding there to take the hit.

Playing For Keeps
She shook her head. She was no longer part of the circus but just an audience member. My Review: Every time I have finished a Jill Shalvis book I remind myself of the objective to clear my calendar and read the rest of her listings, which would take a chunk of time, as she has been quite the busy bee; Goodreads lists thirty books to her credit.
I was late to this party but I have every intention be that nightmare type guest that never leaves.
I am greedy and want them all, past, current, and future works. I am totally enamored. I adore her clever wit and humorous banter as much as her insightful observations and emotive reflections. Her writing is so stunningly agile she can have giggle-snorting and sniffling on the same page. Playing For Keeps was a heart-clenching tale yet well-balanced with levity, swoon-worthy romance, and sumptuous sensuality.
I delight her wordplay and worship her altar of used printer cartridges. View 1 comment. Dec 05, Stacey is Sassy rated it it was amazing Shelves: arc , cont-series , angry-fix , cats-and-dogs , dark-ish , favourites , if-this-guy-was-real , millionaire-billionaire-hero , quirky-heroine , steamy.
For years I saw my hubby with rose-coloured glasses. I thought every woman in the world would want him for their own.ignamant.cl/wp-includes/45/133-encontrar-celular-nokia.php

Finally, after 21 years of marriage, the rose-coloured glasses have a few smudges on them. Her rose-coloured glasses needed a few smudges to see him clearly…suit and all. Sadie appears a little rough around the edges, is stubborn and a wee bit prickly. After reading the little snippet at the end of Hot Winter Nights I predicted that Caleb was going to be the book-boyfriend for me. My heart melted at his thoughtfulness. I was swooning when we had his POV and I got to see him convince Sadie that her prickly barbs would not deter him.
I wanted to see him put on his Knight-In-Shining-Armour costume to fight the wicked witch. Her devotion to her knew co-owners is so cute and I loved that with a little whining, she had them both giving into her. I loved the hand-holding to calm her fears in the car and the sitting on their feet to gain their attention. So cute!! Sadie and Caleb were interesting, and I found them refreshingly real.
