Musing Maddie's Review:

If you're looking for a quick, sweet read, grab Brenda Jackson's latest. Not only will you get caught up with the latest Westmoreland romance, but you will also be captivated by Jackson's delightfully sexy prose. This was a quick, predictable hottie.

The friendship covered between determined-to-be-single gorgeous Stern, and his best friend JoJo, will delight. It was credible, fun and at times will have your heart racing. Sheltered, independent and tom-boy JoJo, knew she was in love with Stern, but in trying to placate her heart, and maintain her dearly treasured friendship, she attempted to 'pretty up' to impress a Stern alternative.

Little did she know, that her attention to make herself irresistible, had just the effect she wanted, but on the wrong man.

The plot was predictable giving the feel of the book, a light, easy read. A little tension was thrown in to tease. Add in Jackson's well renown sizzle, and you have another delicious tale. Warning: the Westmoreland stories are addictive.

Written with Jackson's experienced and talented hand, Stern was a great read, and I know I will be back for more..

  4 STARS!

Meet Musing Maddie:

Musing Maddie is an avid reader, who mainly devours all things romance. She loves series, but only when the story warrants a few books rather than one. A strong, intelligent female with a bit of sass and wit is the preferred heroine in the books she reads, and some sizzle between the sheets is welcome too. Well, ok...more than welcome! Well, not just between the sheets is just fine too! She’s from Down Under, so her humor is on the crazy side. Captivating storylines, with well developed plot and yes, hot, hunky Heroes, is definitely a preference, but she loves it when the characters are damaged, and their story brings hope and restoration. Yes please to HEAs!
