Book Description:
Cupid Texas Series, Book 2
The newest Cupid, TX romance, from the author of The First Love Cookie Club and the Jubilee, TX novels…

Football star Pierce Hollister has fame, fortune, and beautiful women who’ll do anything for him…whether he asks them to or not. But when it all comes crashing down, Pierce finds himself back home, running the ranch in Cupid, Texas, wondering how it all went wrong.

But one thing is right: Lace Bettingfield. The former plain-Jane has turned into luscious knock-out—trouble is, she won’t even give him the time of day no matter how many passes he makes.

Being in love with your older brother’s best friend is awkward enough, and Pierce was the cause of Lace’s most embarrassing high school moment ever when her secret letter to him declaring her love landed right on the front page of the school newspaper! Pierce is still as stubborn, sexy, and arrogant as ever…but Lace is about to see that things aren’t always as they seem…especially when it comes to love.

Idgie Says:
First, everyone sing along to Air Supply with me.... sorry, the title gave me a flashback.  :)

Second, I have the idea that Lori is turning into Barbara Cartland.  I receive so many new titles from her that she must not sleep, eat or have any life that doesn't involve a Word program. (This is my 7th book to review since Nov. 2010 and I'm not sure I have received all of her titles during that time.)

Saying that though, I admire her skills.  Her books never read like they are simply churned out for profit.   There's a lot of character, spit, fire and compassion in these love stories.  Definitely a large amount of thought and preparation go into them and the characters are always likable.  

Having cowboys in many of them doesn't hurt either!  :)

Going pool or beach-side................this book deserves a toss into the pool bag.
