Review Irresistable Susan Mallery

Cover comment: Boring, and not related to text, but easy to buy without embarrassment

Setting: Contemporary Seattle, switching between a working class hood, a middle class suburb, and the well do to Buchanan clan (although class is never an issue for the leads)

Series: Yes, this is book 2 in the Buchanans series. Book 1 is Delicious, Book 3 is Sizzling.

Main characters: Elissa Towers, waitress, single mom in her mid twenties to 5 year old Zoe, with checkered past, and Walker Buchanan, early thirties, retired Marine with some PTSD and an incident in his past. His family owns 4 well known restaurants in Seattle.

Plot: Straightforward romance plot (no spies, blackmail, or paranormal elements, although there is one violent scene involving harm to the heroine and her child).

Distinctive features: None, actually.

My take in brief: This is an adequate contemporary. It reads very much like the kind of solid series romance for which the author is well known. Well written, with likable characters and believable, if less than compelling, internal conflicts for both.
