    One thought on “Ain't Misbehaving (Dallas Duets, #1)”

    1. I wasn’t sure what to expect from Annalee Chambers when I started this book. A wealthy family, a questionable hand in an accident, and a lawyer ready to do what it took to get her out of trouble, there was potential to not like this character.But Annalee proved a heroine worth the read when she uttered a single word. As she struggles to not only complete her service but to do it well, she grew on me (rather quickly). Yes, she’s sheltered, a bit naïve, and doesn’t think much of her abiliti [...]

    2. This is my favorite of Marji Laine's books. It's a Christian romance but one of those that could stand as an excellent story if the Christian elements weren't there. Not that I'd want them removed! But someone who is not Christian could thoroughly enjoy this novel. The characters, primary and secondary, are well developed, and the prose is a smooth read. LOVE IT. I received a copy of this book from the publisher but was not required to give a review.

    3. What an incredibly captivating contemporary romance! This is my first novel by Marji Laine and I’m so glad that her book found me. The story is well-written, the plot is intricately planned, the dialogue is so real and engaging, the characters are wonderful, the faith component of the storyline is seamlessly integrated, and the book moves at a great pace with lots of twists and turns. Annalee is such a beautiful heroine, inside and out. Granted, she’s the baby daughter of a rich attorney run [...]

    4. "Ain’t Misbehaving" by Marji Laine is a fun read about people with money and how Annalee and CJ meet each other. I really enjoyed this story. This story shows how some people judge others with money wrongly and need to realize that money isn't necessarily evil, but of course there are characters in "Ain’t Misbehaving"that show that money does make some people thank more highly of themselves than they ought to.This book has politicians and lawyers and judges. It is a story about betrayal. It [...]

    5. Ain't Misbehaving - Dallas Duets 1 by Marji LaineAnnalee did the right thing when she pled guilty.  But she sure paid the price!  She was assigned to community service at an after-school daycare.  What did she know about Kids?  What she didn't know was her life was about to change!!!!CJ Whelen loved running the daycare.  He was a vital part of the community.  He forgot to mention to Annalee that he was the wealthy son of a prominent business man.  A big mistake! I was intrigued seeing th [...]

    6. Book Review by Bree HerronContemporary fans will love reading this novel! I really loved the status and society points that drove our Annalee to see her sins and become better. This book was all about love, faith, and working to be truly one with God.CharactersAnnalee is one of those girls, now before you say “that sounds sassy” hear me out. She truly has a heart but it has been wrapped up in glitz of high society. She has to learn to be a person of God, not money. I liked her, she starts of [...]

    7. You know the old saying, you can’t judge a book by its cover? That can easily be applied to the characters in this story. This was a refreshing reminder that just because a person may be high society, doesn’t mean they are a bad person. Quite often we are quick to judge someone based on their social position, much like Margo did. And shame on us. Annalee and CJ are both prime examples of why we shouldn’t do that. Annalee was the total opposite of what I was expecting from her character. Sh [...]

    8. Because her father was a prominent businessman running for political office, Annalee’s case generated wide-spread attention and those responsible for her punishment were careful not to show her any favor. Annalee was assigned a penalty of a number of community service hours but was surprised not only by how difficult the assignment would be but the sheer animosity shown her by some of the people she would be working with and even her own probation officer.This story was so heart-warming as Ann [...]

    9. My Rating: 4 and a half stars.Recommendation: Fifteen and up; I was okay with this book as it does not too much romance for me.My favorite character/s: Annalee Chambers is trying to do the right thing, but is just getting rebuked for it. She is determined not to fail at what she has been told to do by a person who at first hates her. She is kind, nervous, and humble. I liked her a whole lot, but even more so at the end of the book. She comes to care for the kids she has to work with, as well as [...]

    10. I enjoyed this book very much. It was a cute story. I thought the interactions between the characters were well written and authentic. I liked most of the characters but the one that stood out to me was Annalee’s dad. He was supportive and there for her. The story is set around an after school program for kids. I think it described what an afterschool program is like and how hard it is sometimes to get funding for the program. This story really brings out how important it is for kids and for p [...]

    11. My ReviewAin't Misbehaving is the first book in a new series. This is a series that I want to read the next book. I really enjoyed this book. Annalee finds herself in court after trying to help a friend out. She goes against what others want her to do and chooses honesty in a difficult situation. CJ loves running an after school program in a not so safe community. Both Annalee and CJ come from wealthy families that want to help them in ways they don't want help. Wealth doesn't mean everything. R [...]

    12. This story contains a number of antagonists determined to ruin the lives and romance of the hero and heroine, either for their own self-interest or the good of the main characters. It also contains its share of humor, insecurities, bold moves, applaudable secondary characters, and spiritual insight. Ain't Misbehaving is an enjoyable start to this new series and a sweet Valentine's treat. I give it 4.5 stars for its romantic escapism as well as the author's ability to make us care for and want th [...]
