    Good edition to the Blackwater series, but it didn't exactly knock my socks off. Maybe I was expecting a little more because Anne Rainey has written some of my favorite erotic romances. Maybe if it was a little longer or had a subplot going on I would've bumped it up a notch. Or maybe I'm just being hard to please... Anyway, hunky dark-haired, hazel-eyed construction company owner Vance is the second oldest (I think?) of the 5 Jennings brothers, and this is his story.The story begins with Vance's old high school flame (Shayla, who dumped him 12 years ago) coming back to Blackwater, Ohio. Shayla wants to make amends and explain why she cruelly dumped him with no explanation and then headed off to Florida with her family. Vance has never really gotten over his first love and feels nothing but bitterness for her--wasn't he good enough for rich girl Shayla? Shayla is finally out from under the domineering thumb of her father and wants to live her life the way she sees fit, and that includes moving back to Ohio and seeing if her first love Vance will give her another chance. After hearing Shayla's explanation, can Vance find it in himself to understand and trust Shayla not to break his heart again?Yeah, this was a pretty simple story, with not a whole lot going on. You know of course Vance will let the curvy, readheaded beauty back into his bed, because the chemistry and lust is still there. Vance and Shay have a couple of steamy hot bedroom scenes (complete with the "I want all of you..." anal scene), but Shay wants more than just sex from Vance. The only question is if Vance wants the same thing? So not a whole lot of suspense or obstacles in their way; the family all loves Shay, and only older brother Sam, who remembers how hurt Vance was, expresses any doubt about her.Despite being a little underwhelmed by this story, I will keep reading this series. Something tells me that twins River and Reilly might have a more interesting story to tell... 3 1/2 stars

    Kitty's review posted on Guilty PleasuresWhen Shayla turns up on Vance's doorstep after 12 years of being away nothing good could happen – according to Vance. He had it all figured out in his mind and had a very bitter taste in his mouth about the beautiful red-head that he opened the door to. What he didn't know is the real reason why Shay left him in the first place, what her father had threatened or the hell that she went through.Finally, Vance relents and allows Shayla to explain all that happened in the past. What happens from there is nothing but explosive and hot. But, Shayla feels that all Vance wants is the sex when she is after so much more. He was all she dreamed about, all she thought about during her 12 years away, no other man would do. It was up to her to get Vance Jennings to admit his true feelings for her. And, she has to win the Jennings brothers over as well. They put up with him when Shayla walked out on him with nothing but a letter 12 years ago.What a wonderful book. My heart broke for both Vance and Shayla while reading this book; Vance because of the heart-break that he suffered and Shayla because of the abuse that she suffered. Ms. Rainey really brought the story together and made you feel what both Vance and Shayla were feeling throughout the book. The sex scenes were very well written and explicit. I guess HOT would be the word for them. I look forward to reading the rest of this series. The boys of Blackwater, OH are scorching and I can't wait to see what happens with the rest of the boys in the Jennings family!

    I pre ordered Vance's Rules as soon as it was available on Amazon and it was so worth the wait!This was another great story from Anne Rainey.I just love how her books are very very hot and sexy but are also full of emotions. Vance and Shayla got a second chance at love and I enjoyed reading about them and getting to see the rest of the Jennings family. I love the Jennings family and I can't wait to read more books in the series.

    Posted on http://scorchingbookreviews.blogspot.comWhen the girl who broke Vance Jennings’s heart twelve years ago shows up on her doorstep looking for a second chance, he can’t think of doing anything other than running in the other direction. He thought he had finally managed to fill the hole she left when she ran, but upon seeing her again he realises that all he had really done was disguise it. But she broke his heart all those years ago; why in the hell would he give her a second chance?Shayla had no choice but to leave Vance all those years ago, but her circumstances have definitely changed. She is now in a position to start living the live she wants and the first thing she does he return to the man she gave her heart to. She knows that it won’t be easy to win him back but the stakes are too high not to try.This is the second book in the Blackwater series and I will be reading the rest of the series. This one covers a trope that I really like; that of long-lost loves returning to throw a spanner in the world of the Hero. It didn’t have that much tension as there were no real obstacles in the way of these two getting back together. The family liked her and there were no significant others to get out of the way. In fact, the only thing that was in the way of these two getting it on was Vance’s hurt feelings. It made this one a very quick read but it wasn't as meaty as Rainey's other books.Vance was a good hero to read about. He is a strong, slightly gruff man who is complete family orientated. The fact that he is rebuilding his adopted families’ diner with his brothers as “repayment” made both my heart ache and swoon. The fact that he thought they warranted that level of thanks was alien to me, but I have never been in the position all five Jennings boys are in. I loved him as a Hero; he was everything I wanted him to be. He was strong, compassionate, sensual and reach-for-the-ice-bucket sexy.Shayla had all of my respect. She was a strong heroine; the reason that she left would have been massive to a teenage girl and she honestly thought she was protecting him. When she arrives back, it is with the sole intention of winning back Vance. She is prepared to fail but thinks the risk is worth it; this woman was pretty kickass. Of course the only way she can convince him to give her another shot is to tell him it’s all just sex. I really felt for her when I listened to the stories of her childhood. They both had experienced the kind of emotions that children really shouldn’t have to feel and I wanted them to get their HEA.The sex is awesome but I expect nothing less from Anne Rainey. There was a whole lot of bossiness going down and Vance is a pretty intense kinda lover. It is a smoking sexy book and that is the thing I went away from this book. Just look at the cover....that tells you everything you need to know *fans* Overall, this is a smoking hot book about two lovers reconnecting and second chances. I really liked it....I would love to read Vance’s twin brothers tales immediately....I think Rivers will be a very emotional book!

    And...Ms. Rainey has done it again with Vance's Rules -- Blackwater and the Jennings brothers are proving to be one of my favorite series. Full of not just steamy sexy scenes, but also emotions and full character depth. I love reunion type romance stories, and this one did not disappoint. I'm hooked! I loved Vance's resistance and Shay's persistence. Now, when is book three coming out? I'm seriously hoping River is the star of the next one. He intrigues me.

    Characters get back together after a really long separation and pick up where they left off. It worked for me.

    This one was really good. It was short as well only 11 chapters but it was good. Vance's one love that broke his heart 12 yrs ago is back. Shayla is a great character in the fact that she went from a scared young, abused woman to a strong, take what you want woman. She wants Vance back. There was a lot of angst on Vance's part & the way it ended I'm still not sure what's going to happen. Hopefully we will see them in the next book.

    HOT AS HELL! After Sam's book, Vance is coming. With who? His highschool sweetheart. How sweet is that? Very. I loved the story, but for now Sam's is my favorite. Worth reading it.

    Another sweet romance. I liked it well enough until Shayla starts pushing for an emotional commitment from Vance when I felt she had absolutely no right to. It made me not like her very much.
