JUST THE WAY YOU ARE, #1 in Christina Dodd's New York Times bestselling romantic suspense series, Lost Hearts...Mystery and misery scar their young lives. Three sisters and their foster brother are torn apart by tragedy and scattered across the country to grow up apart...

Hope Prescott lives in Boston, far from the warm, southern home she recalls. She works with one goal in mind--finding her long-lost siblings. Yet her job at the answering service and her own loving nature creates a family of friends, people she knows only by their voices. She especially likes Griswald, gruff old butler for wealthy Zack Givens.

Meeting Griswald is a shock; he is neither gruff nor old, but a powerful, handsome man. In fact, he is Zack Givens, mysterious, cold, heartless--and charmed by the artless young woman who brings him chicken soup, treats him like a friend...and falls in love with the humble man she imagines him to be. Inevitably she will discover Zack's secret and face his betrayal. Then can Zack solve the mystery that haunts Hope's past to prove their futures lie together?

Silly, naive, predictable. The one thing that I didn't expect, for some reason, was the cliffhanger ending and the unfinished story.

Four stars because, while I thought the story was just delightful, I found the adult scenes too graphic for my taste.

Loved this book
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
I love this author. This novel is not one of her best. Of course, the female lead is a virgin, and a minister’s daughter. Of course, the male lead is a tough, rich CEO. I still read it all the way through. The ending leaves massive loose threads. The sex is definitely hot. Do read a Christina Dodd novel, but don’t start with this one.

Ms. Dodd never disappoints me. I can't wait to readbthe rest ofbthe series. The heroine is sweetly innocent but not stupidly naive and the hero is very sexy. Please read this book you will not be disappointed. Ms. Dodd if you read this more Ma Monahan and Griswald please!!
