By Toni Osborne TOP 100 REVIEWER on June 29 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Even if the plot is unrealistic and melodramatic I found the story cute and the main characters lovable. If you have a taste for the dramatic you will find a bit of everything: an intense battle in what was a beautiful setting, love and romance and a fairy tale ending.

In the second installment of Dodd's contemporary trilogy, the middle Prescott sister, Pepper is featured as a hard-nosed, hard-working, wounded young woman with a tremendous amount of trust issues. Orphaned, and torn from her family at the age of eight, she had been parceled out and lived in various foster homes, none for very long as her rebelliousness caused her to be tossed around quite often. Only once, - the final foster home in Diamond Idaho, where she had stayed the longest did she feel some sense of belonging, but even from there she ran. The years in between, after reading an inspiring memoir of a woman's accomplishments, she turned her life around and started a thriving landscape business. Discovering and witnessing her hero, General Jennifer Napier, killing her aide after he accused her of furnishing government secrets to terrorists, Pepper who had been living under an assumed name herself, knew she had to run for her life because who would believe her word over that of a General. Running to the last place that had felt like a home to her, Pepper discovered that her long lost lover Dan Graham, had taken up residence and was now keeping up the ranch. Not only was Dan there, but her foster mother had died and left the ranch to her. Years before, Dan was the reason she had left, and the years in between hadn't lessened the attraction they both still felt, but trust was another matter entirely.
In this sequel, Dodd turns up the heat in some very passionate and exciting sensual laden encounters. Brisk writing, page turning action, and hot and steamy sex had all the makings of this being a stellar read, but for the fact that I was totally aggravated with our heroine and hero - especially Pepper.

Pepper Prescott had her world torn apart at a young age. Her parents were killed and she was separated from her siblings. Pepper has created a new life for herself as a landscaper. She witnesses a murder and runs to the one place she feels safe, the foster home of Mrs. Dreiss.
Dan Graham has been taking care of Mrs. Dreiss ranch since her passing several months ago. He has been recovering from a life threatening injury from his job as a Special Forces soldier.
Dan and Pepper share a past from their teen years. Dan had no idea where Pepper has been. Now that she is back he will do anything he can to make sure she realizes that the ranch is where she belongs.
As danger from both their past catches up to them, they fight to protect each other from harm.
Almost Like Being In Love is a wonderful follow up book to Just The Way You Are. These characters have such depth and passion. You feel their joy and pain.
I really hope Gabriel and Caitlyn stories will follow.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Orphaned at age 8, Pepper Prescott had a troubled youth, bouncing around the system and acting out a bit before she eventually pulled her life together to become a successful landscaper in Washington, DC. Her newly ordered life comes to a grinding halt when she witnesses a crime perpetrated by the military self-help author she idolizes. The one bright spot in her checkered past was the high school year she spent on a ranch in Idaho with a foster mother who genuinely loved her, so when she is accused of committing the crime she witnessed, it's the first place she runs to.
Enter Dan Graham, Pepper's first and only love, who was devastated when she ran away from home all those years ago. The son of the owner of the neighboring ranch, Dan felt he needed to leave town after Pepper ran away so he joined the "army". Several years later he returns home, apparently retired from the "special forces", after being seriously injured while fighting "terrorists". He's been looking after the ranch of Pepper's foster mother who has recently died.
We see a touching romance between Pepper and Dan. Normally reunion stories leave me slightly irritated that the protagonists didn't just work out their issues at the time that they split, but things are handled so well here that I really believe these two needed the intervening years to bring them to this point where they could be together. Dan has never gotten over Pepper, and almost from the moment he sees her again, he wants to be with her forever. His attempts to lure her to his way of thinking are steamy and meaningful at the same time. I adore this love story.
Things would probably be all right if that was all there was to "Almost Like Being in Love". I like both Pepper and Dan.

No one--I repeat no one!--writes better heroines than Ms. Dodd. Pepper is smart, funny and utterly adorable. And as always, the love scenes are really intense and made me blush! I love this book. It is fresh and fast-paced, and is the perfect summer treat.
