Comments Justin

  • Preeti ♥︎ (Romance She Reads)

    Much better than Book #1!I so wanted to read the Justin-Shelby story and it almost didn't disappoint. If one leaves out the dragged out feel and the silly sexual fears of the h. What was that all about?There's something about star crossed lovers getting a hea that is very satisfying.


  • Zoe

    Ahhhhh why is this a contemporary romance? This would have worked a lot better in a historical setting. I am of course biased, since I have almost never liked contemporary stories. I am trying (very hard) to read some works by Diana Palmer and Linda Howard. Somehow their western romances could almost fool me with their ultra alpha males. But honestly, I have yet to get pass the fact that they are all actually contemporary. I read about Justin and Shelby in the first book of the series. They caug [...]


  • Yolanda

    me río lo más grande con las cosas de estos hombres, no he visto cosa igual XDDDD


  • Booklover

    This one disappointed me.The reason for their seperation was repetative,Justin's mistrust over Shelby even after she tells him the truth about what happened 6 years back,the way he kept cruelly taunting her and Shelby's silence irritated me.How much i adored and liked Justin in first book i disliked him here so much.Also there was no grovelling at all she just took him back:(


  • willaful

    I can't honestly call this a good book; it's very formulaic and ridiculously repetitive. How often can one short book contain variations of the word "intimate"? You'd be amazed. But it tugged fairly successfully at my heartstrings. Palmer's cruel hero/downtrodden heroine formula works better than usual here, because Justin is driven by insecurity and low self-esteem, which makes him a little more sympathetic. Also because Shelby actually takes some action instead of just being increasingly pathe [...]

    Poor hero and rich heroine were in love years ago but she left him for another man or so he thinks. In reality she was blackmailed by her evil father. Now years later she is penniless he is rich and offers her a MOC. She still adores him, he has been celibate for six years but he is still bitter and suspicious about her past betrayal. Another super romantic book by DP. Beautiful love story!


  • GuisBell

    Vayaaaa, Justin es más terco que su hermano, claro como es el hermano mayor jajajaja, y otra característica a agregar a los hombres de texas es ser muy rencorosos no olvidan nada, pobre de las protagonistas, no se como aguantan tanto reproche llena de palabras crueles :O


  • Pam

    I enjoyed Justin. He was of course a first class jerk but 5yrs of celibacy can make anyone in a sour mood. Parts were definitely ridiculous

    May have slight spoilers.In author Diana Palmer’s novel Justin, the second book in her Long, Tall Texans series, we have Justin Ballenger and Shelby Jacobs story.We met them in the first novel Calhoun which was about Justin’s brother Calhoun and Abby. Justin is a bitter man not to mention lonely and he has been for six long years ever since Shelby Jacobs broke off their engagement for another man, a man she admitted to having been sleeping with the whole time she and Justin had been together [...]

    I've been trying to see what it is about Diana Palmer that gains her such legions of fans. So far, I'm fairly sure I'm never going to be one of them. I guess she's just not for me. YMMVThis one was better because, at least, it wasn't all about a poor, downtrodden heroine chasing after and worshiping some jerk who ran hot and cold mostly because he felt she wasn't good enough/pretty enough/glamorous enough for him and he resented the fact that he could even be attracted to someone so far beneath [...]


  • Kari

    This one was a bit better than the first one, but not by much. Justin and Shelby have a past. They are still in love but both refuse to let the past go and move on. I thought that Justin was a jerk through pretty much the whole book. Even when she had proof that she didn't lie about what happened to break them up, he still didn't trust her. I didn't blame her in the least for leaving him. Although, I probably would have done it a lot sooner. I also probably would have made him grovel a little mo [...]


  • Laura

    I felt sorry for Justin while reading Calhoun's story. So it was a bittersweet reading. He's been tormented for six years, ever since Shelby broke up their engagement and destroyed his pride. But now, he proposed to marry for convenience. The problem is that the past is very difficult to forget, and when there are secrets, misunderstandings happen. Delightfully lovely.

    Shelby Jacobs father was a very cruel and uncaring man. Maybe that was why he made the love of Shelby's life, Justin Ballenger, believe she betrayed him and slept with another man.It broke Shelby's fragile heart to hear Justin believed her father's wicked lies. No matter how she tried Justin never listened to her and promised to despise her forever. Now Shelby's father is dead and Shelby and her brother, Tyler, are loosing everything.Justin decides marrying Shelby is the only way to keep her out [...]


  • Dani "The REAL Cullens_Girl since 2002"

    I am not sure how I feel about reading Justin and Shelby's story. I am much more satisfied with their ending than I initially was with Calhoun and Abbey. I will say that all through Calhoun's story I just assumed (even though the book says otherwise) that Calhoun was the older brother because Justin really does act pretty juvenile in both Calhoun's story and now his own. Diana Palmer has a habit of creating loveable characters in one book and then turning them into total jack-asses (its the only [...]

    Série Homens do Texas 02Apreendendo A AmarDiana PalmerInsegurança, ciúme, paixão e amor, são os sentimentos que se encontra neste romance entre Justin Ballenger e Shelby Jacobs. Acredito que esta história seja uma das melhores da série Homens do Texas. Apesar de todo sofrimento, da rejeição de Shelby, de se transformar num descrente, um recluso. Justin nunca em momento algum deixou de ama-lá. Já Shelby, não acreditava que algum dia pudesse obter de volta o amor de Justin. Doce engano [...]


  • Dayna

    Justin was as hardheaded as they come that’s for sure. Too hardheaded for my taste, to be honest. I just wanted to thump him one all throughout the book. The heroine stood up to him on occasion, so that was nice, but I find that DP books hinge around the heroes, and if I struggle with liking the hero, then I struggle with the book.


  • Caitlin Wyatt

    One of my favorite LTT books to be honest I love Justin he is one of my fave characters. This was just a great story. I just loved everything about it. Justin was so standoffish but I loved him. I grew to love him in Calhoun's book & it just continued on into his own story.


  • Amanda Sheila

    I liked it but I was expecting more. In Calhoun's story, Justin was described as big and warm man who carry a scar from his past. But in this book Justin's nothing but cold and merciless man. Very typical of Diana Palmer, but still, I was expecting more. But so far so good, as usual. :)


  • Julie C-F

    Too much drama that repeats the "accusations" and mistrust. Their love for each other was intense and however it seems great that it is like so, going through so many painful scenes just made this story too heavy to read.


  • Kathleen

    Gana puntos extra gracias a Justin, por aguantar todo el bulling que le hacen. Pronto reseña en kathlr95.wix/esquinaliteraria
