ALL OUT OF LOVE
The second offering in Wilde’s series set in Cupid, Texas, will satisfy any reader looking for a book with a lot of heart, sexy cowboys and small-town charm. Giving hope to all high school ugly ducklings, the awkward teenager grows up to find the unattainable boy she had a crush on 12 years ago isn’t so unattainable anymore. Wilde writes with a lot of heat, and this is a fun, romantic and passionate story readers will love.
When Lace Bettingfield’s letter to Cupid declaring her love for the handsome, popular football star is published in the school paper, the public embarrassment is unbearable. Since then, Lace has grown into a strong, confident woman who no longer has stars in her eyes. When Pierce Hollister comes home to nurse his wounds after an injury dashes his dreams of winning the Super Bowl, he has a lot of work to do to repair his family and his love life. Women still fall at his feet because of his fame and fortune, but there is only one woman he wants: Lace. She no longer carries a torch for him, but he is determined to win her heart and prove to her he’s more than the playboy she thinks he is. (AVON, Jul., 384 pp., $7.99)
