Funny, sexy and just plain wonderful. I really needed a feel good book this week and this one was just perfect. Both the hero, Jack Tolliver, and the heroine, Samantha Monroe, were great together as they found their way from a contract farce to true love.When Sam tells her best friends after one to many margaritas that she would love to be a "Kept Woman" her life changes forever. Friend Kara is looking for a way to humanize her soon to be candidate for the US Senate, womanizer, rich, bad boy, fo [...]

Light and fun but well written. The story is a bit unreal, you know the heirstylist with three children and the ex-football player, a bit of bad boy and womanizer, it seems strange ;)But really it was a good story, full of good characters. I liked it very much.

I think I may have found a new favorite in Ms. Donovan. She manages to weave a great tale around characters that, as a reader I feel I could like in real life. Sam is a divorced mother of three just trying to keep her head above water. She has bills to pay, a 60 hour a week job, two tweens, a toddler, and very little time for herself. You can feel her pain.Jack is your typical pretty boy former athlete politician. He goes through women like most go through under ware. He has really never had to [...]

This one just didn't do it for me. I knew from the back cover blurb that the premise (playboy politician gets a fake fiance to clean up his image) was silly, but I know of several authors who could have pulled it off with clever writing, endearing characters, and playful humor. Susan Donovan just wasn't up to the task.The writing in this novel was passable, but far from perfect. Donavan did a lot of telling rather than showing, and I got tired of her fondness of exclamation points. The pacing of [...]

This was one of the two Susan Donovans I brought with me on holiday to Thailand. The other was an older title, Take A Chance On Me. I liked both though I think most Contemp Romance fans are likely to rate the older book higher. It's just that I'm a sucker for Cinderella-type stories and this is what The Kept Woman is even if the heroine gets her prince by agreeing to be "kept" by him temporarily.I found this a fun book and just right for a holiday read. Donovan reminds me of Susan Andersen's and [...]

I've read Take a Chance On Me by this author and LOVED it, so I was very excited to read this book. I expected the same stuff that I got from TACOM.r, emotionally tormented characters, and a decent plot line. This story gave me only 1 out of the 3. It was funny. I laughed out loud at several of the scenes in this book.whether it was Sam's little toddler who was having difficulty potty training or her hilarious best friend, this book certainly had the humor. What it didn't have was likeable chara [...]

2.5 stars: Humorous romantic comedy--light beach readI deduct some stars due to the predictability of the storyline and I wasn't a fan of the lead guy (cheater/womanizer and coniving politician). However romance left you feeling good after reading it and the hero was sexy/hot, bad points aside. I also liked the interactions with the kids and friends. This book was similar in style (but not quite as good) to books by Julie James, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Jennifer Crusie, and Erin McCarthy.

Another good book by Susan Donovan. It took a little bit for this book to get going for me, but once it did, I really enjoyed it. Initially I was not a fan of Jack's but then he grew on me especially when he interacted with Sam's kids. He never knew what he was looking for until it was standing right in front of him and then he embraced it all, Samantha, her kids and her friends. A lot of feel good moments, and a sweet HEA.

Gostei imenso do livro. Foi uma leitura leve e divertida, com os seus pontos mais sérios mas, em geral, um romance tranquilo. Apesar disso, valeu a pena como leitura mais leve e aconselho para quem está à procura deste tipo de livros.

I would really give this one 4.5 stars. I liked this book so much better than Take a Chance on Me. Jack and Sam are great together and you will find yourself energized as their love story unfolds. It's a fairy tale come true!

3.5 stars. I read this book on Valentine's day, while on a business trip-it was a great fit! This book was a lot of fun, and the characters were more engaging than usual. Especially considering that I really didn't like the last Susan Donovan book I read, this was a lot better than I had expected. I've read this at least twice, and I'll probably read it again, once I forget the details enough. I would recommend to any looking for a fun, properly distracting yet minimally taxing romance novel.

I like the idea of pairing light chic reads with complex classics but oh my a beautiful romance is becoming rarer and rarer the plots are so unbelievable, the characters have no depth, there is simply nothing to induce one to keep in reading , I need to find another category of light readswonder what it will be tsk tsk I disliked everyone in this novel the jock politician, the naive princessy mum, the rude kids, the nosey friend, the ill-trained dog, the ex with the persona of a female dog. and [...]

I would give this 3.5 stars. The book was charming, the characters evolved throughout the book, and I especially liked that the main character spoke open and honestly about their feelings throughout the book rather than keeping secrets like an angsty teenager.

One of Susan Donovan's best works. I liked Jack and I loved Samantha. I equally like Tara and Monte and Dakota. A great story with nice epilogue. Fantastic book.

Deff a good read that kept your interest. The multiple POV's killed the ambiance and suspense of it.

It was an okay book.Very idealistic. Very Cinderella-ish except in this story Cinderella is a divorcée with 3 kids.

The Kept Woman is the story of Sam Monroe and Jack Tolliver. Sam is a divorced mother of three working as a hairdresser at an upscale salon in Chicago. Jack is the privilege son of a former senator. Injured in a football accident while he was in the NFL, Jack turns to politics because that is what Tolliver men do, football and running for office. Jack, however, is somewhat of a playboy and has a variety of girlfriends who are not necessarily suitable to his senatorial aspirations.That’s where [...]

Truth be told, I picked this book among the many title of little black dress books because I craved for a plot that revolves around a playboy guy falling head over heels for a simple woman. And this book just gave me what I wanted for the moment. The plot was nothing out of ordinary. Its almost as predictable as it can get. Yet, I guess what kept me from reading was the author's very profound description of the scene. Its detailed enough that we can imagine the whole scene playing out. As I may [...]

The Kept Woman is a humorous book by Susan Donovan. Samantha Monroe is barely keeping her head above water trying to balance a full time job as a hair stylist and raising three children as a single woman. Her husband, Mitch, left just after Dakota was born saying he could no longer live a lie. He was gay and was tired of pretending otherwise. This was the first of many shocks Samantha was to get. He disappeared and has paid no child support to help her out. :No one can locate him. Jack Tolliver [...]

This is what I consider one of my "comfort reads", a book I read just because I love it so much and one that I pull out anytime nothing else would seem to do.The story is excellent with just a touch of "pop-corn" read to it. The characters are well developed and they grow even in the short time this book allows us.The premise may not be a new one, but it is handled perfectly, giving us laughter and even some tears.When a comment is made in passing (and jokingly) in front of her friends about bec [...]

If a story that runs the gamut of emotions is what you like, then this is the story for you. It’s funny, sad, poignant and silly. It’s a story about a down-on-her luck single mom of three, Samantha Monroe . She works as a hair stylist. Her husband suddenly realized he was “living a lie” when he figured out he was gay and left her at the same time she found out she was pregnant with their third child. They got a divorce and he was supposed to pay child support to her for the children. He [...]
