The Problem with Seduction by Emma Locke
What an interesting, fun, sexy, emotional romance! I enjoyed Emma Locke's debut but I think this one is even better frankly. It may have tugged on my heart strings a bit more since I could not imagine being separated from my son but the whole story line, from Con's delightful family and all their personal struggles to Elizabeth and her obnoxious family and her need to find her place in life was such a pleasure to read. If you have read the previous book in this series (The Trouble With Being Wicked) Elizabeth came across a bit selfish and self centered but since the birth of her son she has had a wonderful change about her, making her take stock in her life and her choices. She is bold, clever and sassy and I really enjoyed her. And Con. Sigh. Such a gentleman! He agrees to be a babies father and when he realizes that this means more than just five minutes, it means for life, he jumps in with both feet and never looks back! He loves and cares for his family so much but carries so much on himself. There are five brothers (he is the fourth) but it is his twin that is causing him the most pain, especially financially. He strives to fix this and I liked watching how all these men bounced off each other and the addition of his mother, who has no problem accepting her son's born out of wedlock son, was a nice family relationship. Together Elizabeth and Con are a good couple who have many flaws to overcome but together find the happiness they so deserve. A charming, well written treat filled with ups and downs that is sure to make you tear up, cheer, smile and sigh all along the way to a happily ever after. 4 very solid stars
