    2.25/5 I was so upset! The first book in this series was so good but what in the world happened to this book?! It was a major disappointment. The first half of the story was great. It grabbed my attention and made me believe it was going to be my five-stars book. Nick and Courtney were so cute, trying to hide their feelings towards each other. Their insta-love-lust was working for me. BUT in the second half, everything went downhill! Courtney was so damn weak and stupid! She was really annoying 2.25/5 I was so upset!

She didn't want to stay in this marriage because she didn't want to have children. Such an idiotic reason! No matter how much she loved him, she had to push him away and let him go for his happiness. WTF?! I almost went crazy when she started talking about an annulment and divorce. Urggg!!! Hope the third book will be better!

    ~2 stars~ + 1 star for a great Epilogue Quick review: Courtney is an orphan at 18 and goes to live with her godmother, Justine Rule. Justine has three sons, one of them being Nick, 24. Nick thinks Courtney is too young for him. He decides to wait until she's all grown-up. Fast forward 6 years, Courtney comes back from college. During all these years, she saved herself for Nick. Needless to say Nick can't wait to get her in bed. A few paragraphs later...they're getting married.

I'm still in love with her, "Mistress Mistake", if haven't read that one, give it a try.

She sucked in oxygen as she felt heat on her neck and steel muscles at her back. A heady scent washed over her and invaded her senses. Only one man carried that amazing scent. But he was supposed to be out of town. As soon as she'd had the thought, rough, masculine fingers enclosed her wrist in a grip that she absolutely knew couldn't be broken. Not that she had any intention of trying to break it. Heat, immediate and all encompassing, ran down her spine and she had to cut off a whimper as sensation rippled through her. Nick. God. Nick. His fingers around her wrist were meant to communicate his possession, holding her tightly, just short of pain. She was hit with inconsistent emotions; she felt both defenseless and powerful as she exhaled a shallow pant and stayed perfectly still and waited for his next move. Moisture bloomed and dampened her panties as she was flooded with sexual heat. Her stomach clenched in need as he held her imprisoned by a single large hand encircling the smaller bones of her wrist. His thumb rasped across her pulse point as she felt his sinewy muscles surrounding her from behind. His mouth left her neck and roamed to her ear and she felt the dangerous sizzle of his dominant force as he hissed, "Not one sound." Her stomach clenched with need as he pulled her backwards, and within seconds he'd plucked her away from the crowd and escorted her from the room entirely. He stalled their footsteps in the darkened hallway that led to the kitchen and maneuvered her against the wall. The fingers of one hand sank into her hair and the other landed on her chin and lifted until she was forced to look into his eyes. Red tinged his cheekbones and his jaw clenched tightly as he thoroughly checked her out. His eyes ran over her face, studying her lips, her eyes, and her hair for a few seconds before saying abruptly, "Let's go." She swallowed hard and tried to gain some control over her emotions. "Go . . . where?" His mouth flattened at her question. "I haven't seen you in almost a month. Where do you think? Out of here. Back to the penthouse. Where's your purse?" "I can't leave right now," she whispered frantically. His eyes narrowed and his lips grew taut with implacability. "Oh, I think you can," he stated with a precision that had her tummy clenching.

    Wow this hero was so patient. I seriously wanted to shake Courtney so many times. Poor Nick. His devotion and utter bone deep love was so amazing. It was very angsty and wow I felt at times they were running in circles. But absolutely safe and it had one ott alpha who never wavers. One question was why didn't we get to see the Rule family's reaction to their marriage/relationship. That was a plot hole I really wanted filled.

    I lovte LC and totally adore her unpc hero's so I was really looking forward to this one it had one of my favourite plots but for some reason it just left me un satisfied. I couldn't feel a connection with either main leads to be honest I found them quite dull! The chemistry that LC does so well is missing from this book and I found the female lead quite annoying I don't know but I just found the book did not have any sizzle such a shame but this book is def not in my opinion LC'd better books.

    Alright we got a change of cover. I guess I was not the only one who did not like the old cover. I can live with this one.... it leaves each readers imagination free to make Nick look like they think he should look. Good change!!

    Why did Courtney have to turn into a moron 66% in? What ridiculous illogic. 'I can't have a baby with him, because then my kids won't ever be orphaned. He can have babies with some other woman though and ... err... what?' WHAT. That fabricated drama really ruined my enjoyment of the rest of the book. Ugh.

    Another great read from LC that I thoroughly enjoyed, until Courtney pulled her TSTL move that irritated the heck out of me. I felt it was unnecessary and contrived and something the story could have done without. That knocked a star off what would have been a 5 star read for me sadly. Nick was not the OTT alpha that I've seen in previous LC books but he's definitely one of my favourites. He was bloody awesome - patient, loving, accepting and so in love with Courtney for a long, long time.

The Good, The Bad and Everything In Between Good alpha hero: Nick is obsessed and in love with Courtney, but he is much more palatable to me than the hero in the first book, because he takes the time to care about Courtney and give her time to adjust to their relationship, as well as Frustrating but understandable heroine (for the most part): Courtney drove me a little crazy, but she was the obstacle, and without it, I suspect the book would’ve been much shorter. She does acknowledge her feelings for Nick. Her reluctance to be in a relationship to her all stems from her being orphaned and while insane, I understood it. More balanced romance: I just enjoyed the fact that Nick and Courtney had a give and take in their relationship, which is more than I can say for the first book in this series. Yes, he is possessive and alpha, but Courtney pushed back and didn’t just blindly follow his lead. The Bottom Line (3.5 stars) I enjoyed this book much more than the first book in the series. I’d recommend for those who like uber-alphas that don’t cross the line into insanity.

    I love Lynda Chance, I adore her OTT controlling alpha males so much and she never disappoints... Until now. Nick Rule is indeed an alpha male, but I love Damian Rule more from Rule's Obsession.

I wanted to slap her and strangle her. I almost DNFd this book that I started only skimming some scenes where I couldn't almost tolerate her, but because of my love for Lynda, I forced myself to finish this one. The epilogue was sweet, as usual, and that's what Lynda's novels are also known for: her sweet, passionate, romantic epilogues that would always satisfy you and would never keep you hanging. There is no cheating in this book, I don't think Lynda would ever write a story where the hero would betray his heroine. I find this book an "okay" read, still, I'm looking forward to reading more from this author <3

    4 ALPHA STARS! I'm surprised that I've seen some less than favorable reviews on this Lynda Chance book. It's one of my favorites from her recent releases (I haven't read Rule's Obsession yet but just downloaded it). The first part of the book worked much better for me than the last part. The conflict that pops up at in the last portion of the book felt a little contrived to me, like it really didn't fit the rest of the book and was just thrown in for page count or to get a longer story.

And the author defintiely delivers with Rule's Property! Overall, I didn't love the story but I did like it. I've been a bit lukewarm about some of the more recent releases from this author but really feel that Rule's Property is comparable to other titles by the author I've enjoyed like Sarah's Surrender and Marco's Redemption.

    Lynda Chance is back! Well, almost. It would have almost been five stars for me because the first half was working, especially the over-the-top possessive almost stalkerish alpha male that I craved to read except somewhere during the second half of the book I got really pissed at the heroine! Why? I didn't buy her sudden fears despite how it was hinted throughout. As the other reviewers mentioned it was contrived. Anyway, I still did enjoy LC's hero and his take-charge attitude.

    This story is so sweet...Nick is a perfect Hero and I can't wait to read about the third brother of the Rule family. The only thing that didn't work for me was the annulment/divorce part, it was a bit too long and unnecessary.

    Paused Even though Nick is probably as obsessed as his brother was in book 1,I'm just not feeling this one. I'm happy he waited for her to finish college etc before they started but I found her leaving so abruptly after the ily was weird, yes she went to work but jeeze it's just constant 2weeks/1month separations without much else happening. At this point-Courtney is also getting a little annoying, I really do not understand how they could be in love when they didn't spend much time together over Paused Even though Nick is probably as obsessed as his brother was in book 1,I'm just not feeling this one.

At this point-Courtney is also getting a little annoying, I really do not understand how they could be in love when they didn't spend much time together over the years and the biggest issue for me is that I'm not seeing him saying he was celibate during the six years though he was oh so happy to hear she was a virgin. Maybe I missed him saying it because I honestly started skimming but for me to believe "it's only you" then he needs to state clearly that that statement applied to his d**k too. So I'm out for now but moving on to book 3 searching for a repeat of the awesomeness that was book 1.

    I love Lynda Chance and her heroes, when reading her books you are assured a possessive hero who won't say no and who isn't afraid to do what he needs to to get his girl. This book has that, unfortunately this books heroine got on my nerves and I was left feeling like she didn't deserve Nick. Courtney wasn't all bad but she didn't know when to admit she was wrong and so she caused Nick way too much pain and suffering and it made me frustrated with the whole situation. After her parents died I love Lynda Chance and her heroes, when reading her books you are assured a possessive hero who won't say no and who isn't afraid to do what he needs to to get his girl. This book has that, unfortunately this books heroine got on my nerves and I was left feeling like she didn't deserve Nick. Courtney wasn't all bad but she didn't know when to admit she was wrong and so she caused Nick way too much pain and suffering and it made me frustrated with the whole situation. After her parents died Courtney having no family of her own came to live with her Godmother. With all the kids grown and out of the house it was mostly Courtney and her Godmother but Nick always seemed to be around. On her eighteenth birthday Nick game Courtney a gift and a kiss. That kiss left an impression on Courtney and made it so she could never forget Nick. As she got older she moved away against a very angry Nick's wishes with the promise that she would come home once she graduated. Looking back Courtney began to realize that Nick had feelings for her as well. With Courtney finally being home Nick can no longer deny his feelings and with her finally all grown up Nick has every plan to make her his. But what starts a a great love story may have the potential to fall apart in front of their eyes when Courtney confesses a truth that she has carried since she lost her family. This wasn't horrible but I was hoping of more from Courtney, I got her fears from the horrible loss she suffered but I want a hero or heroine to know when to give and when enough is enough. I think in the relationship Nick gave and gave and gave and after all that giving he was left still being the one to try to show his love and show that their relationship should last. I liked Courtney otherwise but this situation for the second half of the book was huge so it tainted my feelings towards her. This book has, like with all Lynda Chances books a great possessive almost cave man hero and is a quick steamy read. I have enjoyed this series and even though this isn't my favorite of Lynda Chance book's I will read the rest of this series and many many other books by Mrs. Chance.

    The first half was interesting, but the flashback method of writing was not good. The second half was awful. Courtney and Nick desired each other for years. They finally get together. Right after that Courtney decides she must break up with him “for his own good.” She believes she has a flaw and that he deserves someone better. She wants him to find another woman and be happier. The entire second half of the book is Courtney refusing to be with Nick. They both are suffering by not being together.

The entire second half of the book is Courtney refusing to be with Nick. They both are suffering by not being together. I hate that kind of conflict. I don’t want to read that kind of story. I skimmed through the second half to find out what would change her stupid mind so they could be together again. All it took was a two minute logical rational conversation. I’m not sure how I felt about Nick. He loved her and desired her, but he stayed away from her for six years until she was 24, claiming he was waiting for her to grow up. That felt unanswered or not fitting. It took away from his maleness and desire. The story is about 155 pages, half the length of a normal book.

Nick knows one thing though, Courtney is his forever and he just has to navigate through her fears to get her to understand they can have it all. Another great read in the House of Rule series. Nick is a bit darker I think, he is intense and fairly quiet about his feelings towards Courtney, only she will see this side of him. Steamy read.

    Lynda Chance is an auto buy for me. I guess I expected more from this story but it wasn't as good as other books by Ms. Chance. I hated the long separation btw the H and h. I'm not a fan of stories where the H decides to wait till the h grows up before pursuing a relationship. I like a H that goes after his woman, period. Plus, when they do get together the h suddenly decides being with him was a bad idea bc there is no future in it.

    'Q' aka CoCo

    Eh From the blurb I was expecting a completely different book. You're led to believe that the H is a demanding Alpha that "owns" the h and won't take no for an answer. I'm thinking awesome! Unfortunately his alpha-ness wanes, the h is a complete crybaby, and the main conflict in the story is utterly ridiculous and drawn out. It takes FOREVER for them to work through what should've been a five minute conversation fix and certainly not the main angst in the story. Very disappointing all around.

And on a completely random note, I REALLY wish authors would stop using "turgid" to describe aroused nipples. It's all over this book... Takes all the sexiness away. "...drag his finger back and forth across her turgid nipple" See? Not sexy.

    Yeesh! Tough story to review. This ten chapter book felt like a stymied game of chess with the hero chasing the heroine around the board. The orphaned heroine works through her loss through most of the book and that dance of grief makes her seem flighty and immature. Lynda Chance's hero spends most of his time firing up his jets or cooling them. I think he is the first LC hero in a long time, who is run ragged to win the damsel.

    Let me start by saying I love Lynda Chance books. She is one of my favorite authors and she writes great alpha male character. I also liked the first book in this series, Rule's Obsession. Rule's Property was good but I think that there is a fine line between alpha male and bully and Nick Rule crossed it a couple times. I didn't feel a real connection between Courtney and Nick. Courtney seemed very naive and overwhelmed by Nick especially since she was a 24 year old virgin. The epilogue was Let me start by saying I love Lynda Chance books.

    Started out good. Promising plot but then it went off sometime halfway through the book. I find Courtney's reason and actions childish and shallow. Like, really? Sucks to be a woman like her. Poor Nick. 75% of the book and I'm just practically skimming it until the end.

    Not much to like in this book. Few good moments but anything I liked about this book were completely overshadowed by Courtney's over dramatic nature. Just not a book that will stay with me as so many of this author's books do.

    Courtney and Nick. My first book by Lynda Chance that I did no like. Sad sad day... Funny how so many people dislike this book because of how Nick manipulates Courtney to still be a virgin at 24 (when they finally consummate their obsession with each other). IMHO Courtney was the asshat. Everything is going hunky dory til about 2/3 into the book when Courtney decides to flush her brain down the toilet and become a lunatic. I just wasn't buying her/the author's reasoning/excuse. Courtney's Courtney and Nick. My first book by Lynda Chance that I did no like. Sad sad day... Funny how so many people dislike this book because of how Nick manipulates Courtney to still be a virgin at 24 (when they finally consummate their obsession with each other). IMHO Courtney was the asshat. Everything is going hunky dory til about 2/3 into the book when Courtney decides to flush her brain down the toilet and become a lunatic. I just wasn't buying her/the author's reasoning/excuse. Courtney's parents die tragically when she is 16 and she goes to live with her mother's best friend, Justine. Justine's sons are grown and not around much. Mostly they think of her as kind of a step sister, except for the middle son, Nick. Even he doesn't acknowledge his decidedly un-filial feelings for Courtney until she's 18. Yet she's still too young to his 24. So as she grows up and goes to University in Florida, he makes sure that she stays HIS until the time comes when he can claim her for real. A lot of readers seem to have a hard time with this, but I thought the author did a fair job setting it up and making it plausible. SOoooo Courtney finally has her MBA and comes back to Missouri. As I said before, all is good, well not particularly easy, but I was enjoying the story til Courtney discovers some residual pathological fears from becoming an orphan. It was a bit much. I've read this trope before and found it hard to believe then as well, but at least that time the person got some professional help. Does Courtney get help? Nope. They could afford it, so I just didn't get why they go for weeks with her making Nick miserable. Hence the two stars. I actually skimmed most of the end including the epilogue cause I just didn't give a sh*t anymore.
