Self-defense instructor D.J. Monroe would do anything to be the best. Even if it meant asking super-sexy military expert Quinn Reynolds to demonstrate some of his finest moves...on and off the mat! Normally, D.J. didn't date, didn't trust, didn't let anyone in. But when she found herself falling for Quinn, could she let go of her past and embrace a future with him?

Mit seinem farbenfrohen und frischen Cover sprang mir dieses Buch direkt ins Auge. Dann habe ich den Klappentext gelesen und meine Neugier war geweckt. Ich habe auch gesehen, dass es der 11 Teil der Hometown Heartbreakers Reihe ist und da hatte ich schon ein wenig Bedenken. Aber jetzt kann ich sagen, dass man die vorherigen Teile nicht gelesen haben muss, denn dieser Roman ist in sich abgeschlossen. Wenn man die vorherigen gelesen hat kann man allerdings sicher die Namen besser auseinander halten, weil jeder Roman sich einer Person widmet, hier war es Quinn. Die Anzahl der Personen und alle ihre Namen sowie die dazugehörige Familie auseinander zu halten war für mich bei mancher Szene schon etwas zu viel. So ohne Vorkenntnisse fühlte ich mich da doch leicht überfordert. Ich konzentrierte mich also bei der Handlung mehr auf D. J. und Quinn, na gut ihre Freundin und seinen Bruder konnte ich mir dann auch noch merken. Ansonsten war der Familien- und Personenkreis doch recht groß und für mich etwas undurchschaubar. Aber diese Szenen hielten sich in Grenzen und fielen dadurch nicht so sehr ins Gewicht. Nun aber zu den beiden Hauptcharakteren. D. J. ist eine starke und selbstständige Persönlichkeit. Sie hat klar ihre Vorstellungen von ihrem Leben und ihrer Zukunft. Sie lässt Nähe gar nicht zu und wirkt ziemlich emotionslos, sicher sie hat ihre Gründe, aber das man sich so sehr verschließen kann war für mich unglaublich. Ich fand sie als Person schon sympathisch, aber in diesem Roman ist eindeutig Quinn mein Lieblingscharakter. Er war mir direkt sympathisch, denn er kommt mit viel Humor daher und bei dem ein oder anderen Satz von ihm musste ich schon laut loslachen. Aber auch er schleppt so einiges mit sich herum und ist daher ein Einzelgänger. Er ist der Inbegriff eines taffen, selbstsicheren, klugen und muskulösen Mannes. Aber im Verlauf des Romans lernt man auch die weichen Seiten von ihm kennen und die haben mir sehr gut gefallen. Ich habe zeitweise nicht gewusst, ob ich mit D. J. soviel Geduld gehabt hätte.
Insgesamt hat mir der Roman wirklich gut gefallen und bis auf die vielen Nebencharaktere habe ich an diesem Buch auch nichts zu meckern. Ich habe mitgelitten, mitgefiebert, mitgelacht und ich bin sicher, dass ich noch das ein oder andere Buch dieser Autorin lesen werde.

I read this book only because the name of the hero - Quinn - was in the title, which I needed for a challenge. In general the book wasn't bad but I didn't see the need of parading most of the heroes of the previous books in the series with their women. And how many times did we need to hear the strange business of the hero's parentage? They discussed it 3 times - almost word for word. I got it the first time! The book would have been way better if there hadn't been so much nonsense.
This is the story of D.J., who has serious problems with men. A childhood trauma makes her think that most of them are maniacs in training that will jump out of the hedges to beat women. That she works rescuing and training abused women and children haven't help with that. Although her behavior was extreme at times, you can understand where she was coming from, specially because the hero was a Special Forces kind of dude who could kill people in his sleep.
Quinn himself has some issues with his job and is wondering whether he can live a normal life. This reminded me of another book by Susan Mallery I recently read and really liked - Surrender in Silk - but this wasn't as well handled here. If only there hadn't been all those unnecessary parades of past heroes and their HEA, this could have been really good.

It was diamond find that I wasn't looking for and didn't know it existed ! I loved this book from the beginnning to the end. This was an amazing story: Personal struggles of two people' with voids in their lives and haunting issues they were hiding ! They had friends and family encouraging and there for them, but really not know what their issues were. I will come back later to fill in a little more about D.J.and Quinn.... but just read this and enjoying this love story. thanks Susan Mallery for this great book.
I didn't want to give anything away.... Just read the book everyone. !
I just noticed it is an updated book of two stories written by Susan Mallery. I should have paid more attention to that also.

Quinn's Woman
A terrific story with lots of surprises. Great action and love. The characters took a long time finding their truth.

This story had an interesting beginning but I found it a little slow and boring, to be honest.
Here we have two people who are quite similar. D.J is a security expert who teaches women and children self-defence techniques and specializes in "abducting" children from an unsafe environment for a fee. Tough and pragmatic, she runs into (i.e knocks out and ties up) our Hero, Quinn (government assassin), during the middle of a war game.
Much to her chagrin, Quinn manages to escape his bounds while she's asleep and recognizing his formidable skills, she offers him sex and cash in lieu of receiving some training from him.
I'll pause there for a minute. The way DJ's character reacted in certain situations was a little strange to me. She was deeply suspicious of men (understandable considering her background) yet, she was extremely competitive with Quinn and used sex as a means to stay in control. She refused to derive pleasure from her sexual relationships (have an orgasm) as it "weakened" a woman. -_- Why bother having sex at all?
And, that crying jag she goes on after letting down "her wall's" and enjoying a night of hot sex...really? From the start she's portrayed as someone who is conservative with her emotions and you're going to turn her into a weepy female and justify it with the cringe-worthy excuse that she'd been "holding herself together for too long". I call, b******t!
