They get together weekly to rant and rave about men, sex and everything to do with relationships and marriage in general.
Commitment phobic Jason, a result of living in too many foster homes, each rejection making him vow never to let anyone close enough to hurt him, finds himself in a constant battle to tamp down the feelings of intense passion, tenderness and protectiveness that Sue effortlessly unleashes within him. If dry humor, a good plot line with a little mystery thrown in to perk things up in between is your piece of cake then this book is for you.

To murder mystery writer, Sue Finley, men are the questionable characters in real life. She is able to write them eloquently, then kill the, off, but in real life, she hasn't had much luck.
Until this magical kiss with Jason. The connection between this book and the first in the series Divo Rosalie's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews 4.
The connection between this book and the first in the series Divorced, Desperate, and Delicious comes into play. Sue is best friends with Lacy, who is now married to Jason - which happened after the first book ended. Jason really has no desire to be in any type of relationship. Even though the kiss with Sue was sizzling, he doesn't really want to have to rely on anyone, due to his past. However, when Sue is in trouble, Jason knows that it's his duty to take care of her and so what if more happens and the more is oh so sexy?!
I love the connection in this series. All being friends, seeing the relationships progress, is quickly making this a series that will be a return to for me. I can't wait for the next in the series!

Christie Craig has now become my go-to author for when I'm in a chick-lity mood. This is my second book of hers and to me she's given me enough evidence to say that I am happily in her corner. She has a great balance of humor, reality, a bit of suspense, and really hot couples. I can't help it, if you make me laugh out loud or cry then you've sold me, so yeah I'm gonna give her what she's due because she entertained me here.
I haven't read the first book of this series but other than their first Christie Craig has now become my go-to author for when I'm in a chick-lity mood. She kept talking about her writing and her methods and I felt like it was Christie Craig speaking through her to me. I really appreciated that because I learned a bit about how authors do what they do.

Although the heroine of this book is being stalked, it doesn't really classify as a romantic suspense because the focus of the story was on the romance not the stalker. There is basically no nail biting suspense over figuring out who the stalker is. The hero, a cop, does work at it and figure it out but it is not the important element in the book. Which was fine I believe that the author intended it that way.
I really enjoyed both main characters. They were both well written and plausible. Jason Although the heroine of this book is being stalked, it doesn't really classify as a romantic suspense because the focus of the story was on the romance not the stalker.
Jason was very sweet in the way he didn't really know how to be in a relationship but he tried really hard. Sue was a nice grown up woman. Not TSTL or a doormat etc. The secondary characters were well written and her crazy family was well done without being stereotypes. A good solid contemporary on the lighter side with a satisfying believable romance.
Sep 13, Jeanie Jackson rated it really liked it Shelves: suspense , romance. Second in the DDD trilogy. Fun light romance with a little suspense.
A lot of similarities to the first one. Enough laughs to keep me entertained. It took me a long time to figure out who was threatening Sue. Enough of the other characters to keep me happy.

Sep 25, Jane Stewart rated it it was ok Shelves: romantic-mystery. STORY BRIEF: Sue is a mystery writer. Her ex-husband and recent boyfriend were terrible choices.
Jason is a police detective who has never dated a girl for more than three months. He grew up in foster homes. As soon as he became attached to a foster parent, he was moved to another home. He was drawn to Sue and kissed her once. Now, someone is stalking Sue and sending her death threats. Jason takes some vacation time to stay with Sue 24 hours a day, while he and the police try to catch the stalker.
During these several days, Jason and Sue are falling for each other and want to have sex. Jason keeps asking, and Sue keeps saying no. This conflict based on Sue denying her desire for Jason lasts throughout most of the book. It was mostly a feeling of finally relieving the frustration of this couple denying that they wanted each other.
I was annoyed that for most of the story Sue and Jason wanted each other, but Sue kept saying no. As soon as the stalker is caught, Sue and Jason have an uncomfortable conversation where neither one of them is honest with each other page Jason says he needs to go home to check on his plants.
In summary, most of the story is conflict in the relationship based on vague communication and inaccurate assumptions. DATA: Story length: pages. Swearing language: strong. Sexual language: moderate. Number of sex scenes: 3. Total number of sex scene pages: Copyright: Genre: romantic mystery. Jun 22, Karla rated it it was amazing · review of another edition Shelves: , 3-contemporary.
Sue is a writer. Her husband betrayed her and ever since she's had trouble in trusting men. That sentiment amplifies when Jason gives her a kiss that moves the earth, promised to call and 4 months later still hasn't.
Then come the death threats. Death threats too similar to what she writes in her books. And sure she's a modern independent woman, past the hurt of her father's death, past the hurt of her husband's betrayal, past the hurt of her mother's grieving and her new boyfriend the Elvis loo Sue is a writer. And sure she's a modern independent woman, past the hurt of her father's death, past the hurt of her husband's betrayal, past the hurt of her mother's grieving and her new boyfriend the Elvis look alike.
But even she can see trouble coming her way in the form of Jason. Who just decided to appoint himself as her full time body guard. But that can lead to heartbreak and Sue knows it, but can she resist him?
Jason is a jaded man. He grew up in the foster care system and after realizing foster kids were looked down upon he started to perfect the I don't care armor. Which works until people need him, because when people need him everything is okay and Sue needs him. And he wants her, but he knows he can't get everything he wants that's why he never called her, because he wanted to much and men like him never got what they wanted.
Or so he thinks. Now they're together, with feelings they keep trying to fight, with a cucumber wielding, crazy driving old lady, with fruity dressing , bug collecting and unintentional food poisoning relatives, with some cats some with sex unknown, with some interested male prospects, and with a possible killer on the loose.
And can they get out of this unhurt, or will some heart get broken in the process? Really funny story. I found myself intensely drawn to Jason, the way he was hurt and trying to keep himself from getting more hurt, they way his feelings are clear to everyone but him ans Sue, they way he has a soft spot for animals and old people. Sue was great too, the way past hurts kept her from moving forward, the way she was so strong, they way she loves and cares. The crazy friends and relatives in the story added a nice touch as the recurring characters from previous books.
This series has become one of my favorites for the laugh factor alone, but they have a nice touch of suspense, love and friendship. Will definitely come back for more. Jul 04, Sofia Lazaridou rated it it was amazing Shelves: books-i-love.
What can I say about this book? Oh yeah I LOVED IT! Christie Craig didn't disappointed me with her second book on the divorced series like some other authors did.

This is the second book in this series and I was highly, HIGHLY disappointed in it. The first one was cute and was funny, it was slow at some points and you genuinely kind of liked the characters.
This book. Sue has annoyed me to no end. Jason is a SAINT to put up with all the mess she is dishing out. She constantly is lying, the constantly teasing and holding a grudge. I mean seriously how long are you going to hold a grudge about not calling? Sue has been annoying, I kept hoping for her to get This is the second book in this series and I was highly, HIGHLY disappointed in it. Sue has been annoying, I kept hoping for her to get better but unforunately she doesn't get it together.
She holds a grudge against Jason, then she goes after him then she starts digging and snooping. Jason he's a nice emotional sweet guy. He has the patience of a saint. I don't know many real life men who would want to deal with all of what sue has going on.
I just wasn't happy reading this book. I love the first one its funny. This one should really be the free book not the first one. This one needed some work. The mystery of it was great but Sue's character was not my cup of tea it really didn't make me want to go out and purchase the third one for fear of the female turning out like Sue.
This one was as good as the first in the triple D series Divorced, Desperate and Delicious Jason was a great male lead, his hang ups were real and relatable. Sue was also pretty great - she is by no means perfect - not when she leaks when she cries and definitely not when she's constantly saying Jiminy Crickets! But all that aside she was perfect for Jason. Their romance was full of good humor and crazy sexual chemistry. I liked that Jason had to really work for it when it came to Sue.
I loved This one was as good as the first in the triple D series Divorced, Desperate and Delicious Jason was a great male lead, his hang ups were real and relatable.
I loved the big gesture he does at the end - it helped that Sue and Maggie's conversation shed some light on Jason's past and had me melted in a big puddle of emotion for him. I loved Chase and Lacy in book one and now I'm in love with Jason and Sue. Kathy is the last single friend of the Triple D club and I can't wait to read about her and that mysterious plumber!
Sep 15, VLynch rated it liked it Shelves: romance , sexy. Cute, but repetitive tug of war. This book started out good, really good. A sweet romance between an author named Sue and a sexy hot cop named Jason. Until about ½ way through, and the tug of war romance between Sue and Jason becomes so overdone I just wanted to pull Jason from the book and take the hottie for myself and slap Sue!
The resolution of the mystery was such a sad attempt I honestly m Cute, but repetitive tug of war. The resolution of the mystery was such a sad attempt I honestly missed it, and was shocked when the book ended.
I have to admit, the sex was hot and steamy, so I would give those scenes a 4 out of 5, but the whole book only 3 out 5. Aug 25, Jaclyn rated it liked it · review of another edition. This would have been a 4 star for me because it was cute, and I enjoyed the characters and the plot. However, what really annoyed me was the basis of Jason and Sue's issues was lack of communication! Especially at the end, it got so annoying!
If only they had talked to each other, then the book would have been half as long. All of their problems were due to them not communicating!
It made them seem extremely immature, especially Sue. It made no sense that every time he asked her what she needed This would have been a 4 star for me because it was cute, and I enjoyed the characters and the plot.
It made no sense that every time he asked her what she needed she'd say "you didn't name your cat! I know real life couples have communication issues, but it became a bit ridiculous with these characters and it just got to be too much for me.
Jul 24, Cheryl rated it did not like it. I gave this book one star for the hero. I really liked his character and he was pretty much a saint to put up with the heroine.
If I based the rating on the heroine it would have a negative rating. The heroine was probably the least liked that I've ever read and I've read A LOT. She was flighty, ditzy and treated sex like an adolescent should I, shouldn't I, oh my he took my shirt off and what adult woman refers to a penis as a pencil? I almost didn't finish the book due to her but I can't s I gave this book one star for the hero. I almost didn't finish the book due to her but I can't stand to not finish a book so I plowed thru.
I have the final book in this set and keep passing over it because I'm afraid it's going to be just as bad. Dec 11, Carrie rated it liked it Shelves: contemporary , humorous , read I spent the first half of this book frustrated with both hero and heroine for NOT TALKING about what needed to be talked about.
I'm also really tired of "quirky" family used as background filler for romance novels. Other than that, I liked the main characters and the plot was decent. Apr 11, Sassafrass rated it really liked it Shelves: romance , mystery , z-ravenclaw-mmp , z-challenge-books , z-scribd.
This was really cute. It started a little slow for me, but picked up around the middle. I felt for Jason, he had a lot of issues growing up. And so did Sue, but the two of them were really adorable together. The mystery was good as well. But, I liked the banter and humor the most. This author does a great job with that.
I look forward to reading more in this series.

Not a big fan of when characters don't talk to each other but it fit here It was part of that made them who they are. It was annoying but it made the story sweeter for me. This just hit all the right buttons for me at the right time. Jul 17, Zel Polev rated it liked it.
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. It's okay. I find it similar to the first book. The beginning is interesting and it winds down throughout the book. By the time it ends, I don't particularly care. I feel like the build up doesn't really build up because I'm not attached to the characters. I feel like I should care about what happens if I consider a book to be good, so the book is just alright to me.
The story revolves around Sue and Jason. Sue is a murder mystery writer. She finds herself harassed. She has been receiving threat It's okay. She has been receiving threatening phone calls and messages. The threats mirror those of the events in her unreleased book. She went to the police but it was brushed off as a publicity stunt.
It wasn't until Jason took over and took her word for it. He went above and beyond duty by serving as her bodyguard during his time off. The suspects were the people in her critique group, an asshole-ish cover artist, ARC readers, and her ex-husband. The real culprit was the wife of one of the people in her critique group. She was jealous that Sue caught the eye of her husband. She was going to kill Sue. Her last effort was dressing up as a package delivery person. Jason came to the rescue and diverted the wife's attention.
When she was going to shoot Jason, Sue pretended a tampon was a gun and got the wife to drop her weapon. The romance side of the story was Jason not wanting to get close. He doesn't want to be vulnerable and actively avoids situations where he would be. It isn't until he finds himself needed that he gets closer. Sue wants more but he isn't forthright in his feelings.
He finally sorts himself out and she sorts herself out. They get together. There are a lot of gratuitous sex scenes, which is the same as the first book. I could have done with a lot less since they don't really advance the story. flag Like · see review. Aug 17, Larissa rated it it was amazing · review of another edition. And their connection four months ago, and their current stalker situation.
Honestly, Sue is hilarious. Jason is crazy hot. One divorced, the other is leaning towards to the relationship-phobic side, but things are about to change. Four months ago a kiss happened.

VINE VOICE. Verified Purchase. Sue Finley kills people all the time, and yes, a tampon is a perfectly fine substitute for a gun. She plots out her life with all the attention to detail of a military siege, but plotting is something she excels in, so who can blame her?
She's got a cat and an odd propensity to seek therapeutic resolve via deep discourse with her failing ficus, and her mother shows too much cleavage and is dating a produce-selling Elvis wannabe. Her ex-husband is a lesbian trapped in a man's body and he looks better in her skirts than she does. Most important, four months ago she kissed a man and he never called her like he said he would. And it was a hell of a kiss.
Added all together, Sue's life is anything but normal, and really, the fact that she kills people for a living is the least bizarre aspect of her whole existence. She is a suspense novelist, after all. But what's really got Sue in a tizzy at the moment is the dead rat that showed up in a Godiva box talk about disappointing - and terrifying with the words 'Die, Sue, Die' written in red on the rodent's corpse.
Just like she'd written in her latest book. Publicity stunt by an agent who knows no bounds? Sue doesn't think so. Someone is stalking her. Someone is intent on terrorizing her. Someone is going to kill her. Jason Dodd, a narcotics cop with the Houston PD and partners with Sue's best friend's husband not to mention the one who gave Sue that devastating kiss four months ago has no intention of letting that happen.
Sure, he didn't call after saying he would, but he'd never kissed anyone that made him WANT as much as Sue did, and as a foster kid with huge abandonment issues that got tossed around a lot, he's well schooled in how wanting something just leads to pain.
Besides, Sue won't need to call him when Jason's sleeping insi beside her. Now, if he can just convince Sue to let him in. Divorced, Desperate and Dating is my second Christie Craig book and it's even better than the one I previously read the more recently published Shut Up and Kiss Me.
I can't get enough of Craig's blend of humor, suspense, simmering sexuality, and tug-at-your-heartstrings romance. I loved the depth of the characters, and admired the way Craig portrayed these two flawed and damaged people while focusing on the fun instead of the angst even as she maintained the importance of the past wounds on their hearts and lives - because she certainly could have gone the way of pathos and angst, given the lives Sue and Jason have lived.
I also enjoyed the mystery even more than the one in Shut Up and Kiss Me , as in this book it felt a bit more personal and threatening to Sue. It seemed to focus the danger a bit more than it was in the other book and kept the storyline tighter. Actually, I just flat out enjoyed Divorced, Desperate and Dating more on every level, but that's no criticism of Shut Up and Kiss Me , because that was a great book, too.
I think I just enjoyed Sue's and Jason's journey a bit more, and think that the baggage they'd been carting around was more clearly defined and given a bit more room to be explored and that was very appealing to me for the romance aspects of the novel. It made the conclusion feel that much more hopeful and resolved. There were a couple of issues that I had with this book, though.
I have to admit, I love a romance that slow builds to incendiary as much as the next gal, but even I had more than one moment of wanting to pitch Sue through a window if she denied Jason one more time. Poor guy. I know he's clueless about things, but sheesh, cut a guy some slack. It's not like she was all emotionally healthy and mature, either. In fact, that's another issue I had - too much of the book portrayed Jason as the guy with issues that he needed to get over and not enough focused on Sue's own very large issues.
They were addressed, but not as comprehensively as Jason's were. And I know this is gonna sound a bit picky but Sue's a bit of a girly girl, crying not only at the drop of a hat, but at the drop of every hat, and too scatterbrained to remember she bought a gun to protect herself when the chips really start going down. Strictly personal preference here, but I like my female leads to have a bit more confidence under pressure and a bit more spine. Also, I think reading Shut Up and Kiss Me a couple of days ago was rather a detriment to me when it came to this book, because there were a lot of similarities between Jason Dodd and Sky Gomez from that one.
Both were foster kids. Both are cops. Both had traumatic childhoods that left them both with love-'em-and-leave-'em issues. Of course, there were differences, too, but because so much definition of the characters of both of those men revolved around those points, it was a little odd reading about them almost back-to-back. One other complaint that has nothing to do with how the story was told and everything to do with the formatting of the book on Kindle: it sucks.
I don't have a hard copy of the book handy, but on Kindle, I got very fed up with seeing 'to night,' 'in de pen dent,' and 'plea sure,' just to name a few. I don't normally comment on formatting issues heck, most of the time they're not significant enough to jar me out of the story because I get very absorbed when I'm reading.
Unfortunately, in this book they not only jarred me out of the story in several places, but they made me have to stop and concentrate on what was being written because some of the words that were split like that i. I don't consider that a flaw in the story and it hasn't affected my rating, but it was very annoying and I'm all about the warnings. Still, Divorced, Desperate and Dating gave me the most satisfying non-paranormal type romance read I've had in a really long time, and when combined with the humor and the suspense, it has really catapulted Christie Craig onto my "download everything she writes as soon as it's available" list.
And yes, I really have a "download everything she writes as soon as it's available" list - slightly better titled in reality, but that's the gist of it. Take a chance on Christie Craig if you're fond of romantic suspense, don't mind that suspense being quite a bit lighter than others in the genre, like humor mixed in with your romance, and enjoy having a good time with characters and a plot that aren't the most complex in the universe, but make you feel good darn good anyway. Divorced, Desperate and Dating is pure fun.
I almost forgot!! Check out Christie Craig's website for a non-published epilogue to Divorced, Desperate, and Dating that will warm your heart and strengthen your admiration of the romance between Jason and Sue.
