Loves Me, Loves Me Knot


Jenna Langan knows what she wants, and as she tells her best friends after their weekly knitting group, she doesn’t need a man to give it to her…only a few of his best swimmers. And just because her marriage to undercover vice cop Gage Marshall ended badly doesn’t mean he can’t still give her the baby she’s always wanted. In fact, she’s willing to bet a couple of her favorite hand-knit boas that she can tie him up in knots he’ll definitely enjoy…


An unexpected seduction is one thing, but stud service? No, thank you. Gage had his reasons for pulling the plug on his happily ever after with Jenna, and nothing that’s happened since their divorce has changed his mind. That is, until Jenna got it into her head to tie him up and drag him down. Now he has no choice but to stick around until he knows for sure if his ex-wife is pregnant. But the more time he spends with Jenna, the more his resolve begins to unravel…

I have a major problem with this book. Let me set the story up for you: Jenna is considered is sweet natured woman, who happens to be a grade school teacher. She wants a baby more than anything in the world, after a Girls Night full of Margaritas with her friends, they came up with an idea. They get Jenna ex-husband, Gage, to come to be her sperm donor, Jenna drugs him. Yep drugs him, did I mention he's a huge, hunky, vice cop. I felt that the anger that Gage had was understandable, but I thought Jenna got away with it. I felt it was just wrong. But if he was okay with it, I continued on with the book...but that just stuck in my head and I couldn't forget it.

And let me not get started on the secondary story that was going on...In one way I can understand Grace anger, and I thought that the way to "got back" at him was hilarious, my complaint was she wasn't giving him a chance to explain or to talk.

Even though I didn't care for the book all that much (or the series for that matter), I am still curious about what will happen next. I'm not sure what that says about me....funny.
