    One thought on “Just Once”

    1. Reviewed for THC Reviews"3.5 stars" Just Once is a pleasant, light and easy read. It lacked some of the depth in both characterizations and story that I usually prefer in my romance novels, but I still found it to be pretty enjoyable. The first part of the book had a fair bit of action, but at the same time it seemed rather sluggish. I think this was because of the lack of depth to the hero and heroine during this part of the story. Usually an author will build characters by utilizing dialog or [...]

    2. I actually really liked this book and that surprised me. I don't remember what made me pick it up but I did and once I got it home I tried to read it. It did not take me long to decide I had to find out what happens to Jemma. Jemma is finally home from school and wants to spend some time with her father and maybe see some of the world. Almost immediately, her father tells her that he has contracted a marriage for her. Jemma immediately realizes that it is strictly to help his business and that h [...]

    3. Jemma is a feisty gal who sets her sights on a Kentucky adventurer. She is unable to convince him that he loves her too. He has rescued her from a purchased marriage to benefit her father's business. She returns to her father only to have him sell her again. She is about to escape again when Hunter comes searching for her.

    4. After her father announces that he has arranged her marriage to a complete stranger, Jemma decides it's time to make her own decisions and live her own life. So, she runs away into the darkness of New Orleans and hires Hunter Boone to escort her north to Kentucky and to the adventure she always wanted.Enjoyable historical romance. My rating: 4 Stars.

    5. I've already read this book once around ten years ago. I instantly fell in love with Hunter just as Gemma had. You root for them throughout the whole book. You get to wonder if you would have had the same courage and bravery she had. This is a book I will forever get lost in. <3
