"...so give up on him and get on with your life. He will only break your heart, My conclusion as to his ability to commit is...Diagnosis Terminal!"

The Love Doctor

Daffodil "Daffy" Landry stared at her words of advice to the lovelorn and pressed her hand against her breast. Was she writing about this unknown Casanova...or about herself?

Broken Hearts Mended Here

Diagnosis Terminal! Charming, sexy, and self-made Hunter James isn't one to back away from a challenge. Slapping his copy of the New Orleans Crescent against his thigh, he approached the newspaper's outer office. How dare that anonymous, autocratic, and insufferable Love Doctor label him as incapable of commitment? Did she ever consider that he simply hasn't met the right woman? He'll uncover the author's identity and give her a piece of his mind. But first, appreciating an opportunity when it presents itself, he's got to meet the beckoning blonde behind the reception desk.

Who knows? Maybe the Love Doctor has led him to the woman of his dreams after all...

Erin: Dear Love Doctor is a re-release; the original book was written and published back in 2001. This is the story of a commitment phobic woman named Daffy who hands out advice on love and relationships, while being unable to maintain one of her own, coupled with a love them and leave them man named Hunter. While these two had a bit of a spark, they didn’t seem to have a whole lot of depth. When Hunter sees himself referred to in Daffy’s advice column, well what else is a guy to do but go confront the woman who has him figured out all wrong?

This was a cute story, way too sappy and overly sweet for my tastes, but not bad. There is definitely some charm going on throughout the book, and in their own way both Daffy and Hunter had their appeal. It was a bit slow in places and the only encounters between Daffy and James that had plenty of spark were the ones between the sheets. Which while steamy, doesn’t make for much else going on in the rest of the story. The writing is well-done, but the story line and the characters just weren’t for me.

Erin

Erin is a book addict! She loves books of all kinds, but her favorites are Contemporary Romance or YA (and she reads both boy/boy AND boy/girl, sometimes even girl/girl!) She's been reading since she could hold a book in her hands and doesn't see that changing any time soon. Give her a Coke, kick ass tunes from her favorite playlists, and a book, and she's in reading heaven.

She's a Texan, though she drinks her tea plain and NOT sweet. She loves cheesecake, strawberry limeade's from Sonic and her favorite color is purple. In her books, she loves an HEA, but she never minds if the road is rough to get there, as long as the reward is worth the struggle.
