Not one of Anderson s better books To break it down The Good 1 Molly being plump and Jake finding it sexy As a plump gal myself, I like the idea that a woman doesn t have to be built like a supermodel for a guy to find her attractive.2 The scene where Molly picks out a whole new wardrobe It was just really cute, and I loved seeing her take charge of her life even in such a small way.3 Molly meeting

went through she deserved to be happy, and reunited with her mother.5 The cooking scenes.The Bad 1 RODNEY Never before have I so violently hated a character Yeah, I know we were supposed to, but here s my stance on hateful villains Either they need to be well crafted enough that hating them means the author s doing their job, or they need to be so over the top evil that it s funny Rodney was neither The narrative claimed he had charisma, but all I saw was a blatant smug snake who walked around loudly proclaiming how evil he was no matter how well he lied Really, he did everything short of flat out raping Molly in front of a crowd, throwing her in a gutter and pissing on her while calling her a dirty sewerwhore I wish he d gotten punished way worse than he did, and considering how badly Sunset and Jake kicked his butt that s saying a lot.2 The overall plot I know this is nothing new for Catherine, but this time it felt too much like a bad Lifetime Movie No woman should have to go through that much abuse, and it felt like Catherine was piling on trauma after trauma, mostly Rodney related verbal abuse is bad enough, but then he drugged her, tricked everyone into believing she was unstable, turned her own mother against her, stalked her, and then tried to KILL HER Come on but also her having to deal with the deaths of two people she loved There s suffering builds character and then there s Deus Angst Machina, which this reeked of.3 While I can understand Molly feeling bad about her figure after all the mean things Rodney said to her, you d think after Jake and all the other men told her how pretty she was she d start to realize Rodney was full of shit and maybe they were right And while it s all well and good if she wants to eat health food, her approach to trying to get the men to eat healthier was just flat out overzealous, with her brown rice is better for you and no one was going to drop dead of a heart attack on HER watch in regards to the butter and feeding everyone skimpy lunches with fakey diet substitutes just because she thought she was too fat There s encouraging better dietary habits and then there s just being whiny about it.A minor nitpick Catherine obviously did some major retconning with the ancestry The grandfather s name was Matthew, obviously Matthew Coulter from Early Dawn , but neither of his wives were named Hattie, which was the name on the watch Jake gave Molly It s not a huge deal, but a little jarring to read nonetheless.So yeah This book wasn t bad, there are some parts I d read again, but overall it just brought out the overcritical complainer in me I found this to be a very emotional book Molly escapes from her controling exhusband by stealing his horse and heading for The Horse Whisperer She hopes Jake The Whisperer can help the horse heal emotionally and physically from abuse Of course he falls for her and he ends up helping both woman and horse I found Molly to be a little annoying at times Jake, the handsome and ever patient cowboy just let s her behavior slide Overall I was happy with the story. @Download ¾ Sweet Nothings ã When Molly Wells showed up at Jake Coulter s ranch, she had nothing but some extra clothes, a stolen horse, and a fear of her ex husband that threatened to rule her life She d heard Jake was a real life horse whisperer and perhaps the only man alive who could help the beautiful stallion that her ex husband had so bitterly abused But she had no idea that Jake s talents would work their magic on her, with the same power to gain her trust, give her strength, and whisper away her deepest fears No one writes riveting emotion quite like Catherine Anderson Her talent for delving into rich, emotional depths is unmatched Romantic Times Catherine Anderson is one of the best romance writers today Affaire de Coeur Review April 2020 I don t know about everyone else but I have been struggling to read anything over the past month I have a stack of books I checked

been struggling to read anything over the past month I have a stack of books I checked out from the library before we closed, a fewon my Kindle and yet every book I pick up I end up putting down after a chapter or two I just can t seem to connect to anyone anything.So I figured reading an old favorite I used to love as teenager would be a good choice I did read this and manage to finish it yay but unfortunately I don t think I like this book any and will probably be donating my copy to the local library once they start taking donations again sigh It wasn t awful per say, there were some really sweet moments between Jake and Molly and as a reader I really do like Molly s strength and courage especially when it comes to her horse but there were just too many other things I didn t like that lowered my overall enjoyment Jake is too aggressive with Molly, he knows she has trust issues from her awful marriage and yet he keeps just forcing her into proximity with him even when he knows she is uncomfortable around him but he loves her and he s a good guy so it s okay Molly is a bit too perfect, she is so pretty but doesn t know she is and wears awful clothes until she goes on a shopping spree She loves dogs and dogs love her She can t cook at the beginning of the story but by at the end she is feeding 11 men with no problem There was also a throwaway line to countless Indian romances that Molly used to read in college that all had a beautiful, fair skinned heroine coming face to face with a dark and dangerous half breed warrior that didn t sit well with me and yes I am aware that the author wrote this in 2002 Still doesn t mean I have to like it Also the whole plot line with the psychotic ex husband at the end was just a lot.I apologize to younger me for no longer being a fan of this book but I think I m over the whole strong men coming in to rescue the adorable damsel plot line Or the fact that Jake didn t respect Molly s space even when she tells him time and time again she needs to make her own choices Original review January 2012 I liked this one so much, I stole it from my mom and have yet to give it back or tell her I stole it But Molly and Jake s story PERFECT I love that Molly is not a tiny, petite thing and the way Jake shows her she s beautiful, with her dimpled thighs and soft skin GETS ME EVERY TIME.Original reads May 2009 February 2006 Though not Catherine Anderson s best novel that I ve read to date, I thought that Sweet Nothings was still a good book The first half of the story moves at a very languid pace as Molly goes through the process of recovering from her ex husband s extreme verbal abuse and rediscovering herself, while building a relationship with Jake I liked the way that the author mirrors Molly s recovery with that of the

good book The first half of the story moves at a very languid pace as Molly goes through the process of recovering from her ex husband s extreme verbal abuse and rediscovering herself, while building a relationship with Jake I liked the way that the author mirrors Molly s recovery with that of the abused horse she rescued from her ex husband s clutches, and how they become kindred spirits I found myself wishing that Ms Anderson had writteninteractions between them and Jake The second half of the story turns into a light suspense thriller as the ex comes back to become a menacing presence in their lives This part of the story was interesting, but in my opinion, a little too predictable Unfortunately, I felt that the romance took a back seat to these two elements of the story While there were some romantic moments, I just didn t feel like it was quite enough, and it didn t have the heart stopping quality that can be found in some of Catherine Anderson s other works In fact, readers who prefer books that are light on love scenes would probably enjoy this one Aside from one brief lustful embrace early on, the hero and heroine don t even kiss again until 3 4 of the way through the story I normally wouldn t care about the shortage of love scenes if the romance and sexual tension are good, but as I said I found this part to be a little lacking.I would predict that some readers will probably find Molly s constant self reproach annoying, and there will be others who will find her less than perfect body to be a refreshing change from the typical slender beauty Neither of these things were really make or break for me personally What I liked was how deeply nuanced the character is, challenging the reader to look well beneath the surface to truly understand her I love stories that delve into the limitless depths of the human psyche, and if the reader takes the time to look carefully, this one certainly does that Even though Molly wasn t the most memorable heroine I have ever read, this aspect alone made her fascinating to me In my opinion though, Jake is the character who really made this book a good read He is quite possibly the most perfect hero I ve ever read Jake exhibitsof a beta hero persona that always seems to be completely in tune with what Molly is feeling, but he also has a dash of the protectiveness, jealousy and confidence that alphas are usually known for Even though I usually prefer my heroes to be a littleimperfect, I simply couldn t resist this gorgeous cowboy who not only reads, but willingly read a romance novel Now that s pretty cool In spite of it s weaknesses, Sweet Nothings was, in my opinion, a very readable book and a nice addition to the Kendrick Coulter Harrigan series which I look forward to continuing soon This was my favorite of the Kendrick Series I absolutely loved Molly and Jake and watching her learn to trust and love again Jake stands out as one of the most fantastic heroes ever written in a love story He is kind, trustworthy and a gentleman above all else Yet he is one tough dude that no one ever dare cross I highly recommend this series, and the good news is you don t have to necessarily read in sequence Just dive in. Molly has an abusive ex husband who has drugged her and declared her incompetant She takes his expensive stallion because of her ex husband s abusive ways with the horse Jake is a horse whisperer and knows he is in ttrouble when he takes in Molly and the horse Just a sweet story.
