The second installment of the Jamieson Legacy Series, The Guilt Trip, is the story of Aaron "Ace" Jamieson. Ace is living a carefree life. He's good-looking, respectable when he's in the mood, but his weakness is women. When a woman tries to ambush him with a pregnancy, he takes off in the other direction. Responsibility as an option is something he learned from his absentee father.
Talise Rogers has a bright future ahead of her. She's pretty and has no problem catching a man's eye, which is exactly what she does with Ace. Their chemistry is undeniable and their passion explosive. Trapping Ace is the furthest thing from Talise's mind, when she learns she is pregnant. She is determined to be a good parent.
When Ace rejects her she lets him know, " I want nothing from you Ace, not even your name," and she means it. But Ace's big brother and cousins don't plan to let the child who represents the twelfth generation descendant of a royal African tribe leave the fold. Whether Ace decides to accept his responsibility or not, his family embraces Talise and baby.
As for Ace, they turn him over to the LORD. How long will he be able to endure the guilt trip he's experiencing because of his choices? What will it take for him to accept responsibility and turn from the going down the same path his father took?

When the book begins you feel that Tailie has it made with such a wonderful, caring guy...whoops! He hightails it and acts like a scumbag when she tells him she thinks she is pregnant.
I loved the people rallying around her...including Ace's family. If they were Amish they would have shunned him, and some of them did! Through out this book I could feel the hand and love of God.
We rejoin and spend time with some of the people we came to know in Guilty By Association, and they are quickly becoming old friends. I wanted to move in with them!!!
Once you pick up this book, you won't be able to put it down, and thank you Pat Simmons there is another book to be released later this year...Free From Guilt.
I received this book from Tywebbin Virtual Tours, and Moody Publishers, and was not required to give a positive review.
Cafe Lily Book ReviewsUSA4 Stars Out Of 5Started out slow, but picked up speed!June 11, 2012Cafe Lily Book ReviewsUSAQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This is the first book I've read by this author, and I was very pleasantly surprised! I didn't realize until I was finished, that this is the second book in the series.
At first, though intrigued by the book's plot, I wasn't sure if I was going to like this story. It started out a bit slow for me and as I began reading, I thought it would end up being overly predictable. The author managed to toss in a few twists and turns along the way that grabbed my attention and kept me reading.
Talise Reed, learns a hard lesson about giving too much of herself away. "Ace" Jamison is a tall, dark and handsome pretty boy, with a string of broken relationships and jilted, used, women. As Talise is processing the fact that her "baby daddy" has gone MIA, she unexpectedly finds support in the least likely places.
By the middle of the book, I was hooked and enjoyed this story right up until the end. The suspense and tension increased, and I found myself reading faster to see what would happen. The author provides a diverse array of characters, and I found myself wanting a Grandma BB!
I am looking forward to the next book in this series (Free From Guilt) - I can't wait to find out what happens with this family.
IreneUnited States4 Stars Out Of 5The title fits the storyJune 4, 2012IreneUnited StatesQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This book is about the Jamieson Family who are descendents of a royal African tribe. The story follows the brothers as they learn to face up to past mistakes and accept the Lord's forgiveness.
This particular book is about Ace and Taleigh. The other family members do play important parts but these two and their relationship are what carry this story. The story itself does not have a lot of drama but does show how important families are. The birth of a baby changes the lives of all involved and without that pivotal incident the story would not have been that interesting.
I thought the author did a good job in writing this story, it was technically well done. I thought the characters had depth and showed real emotions. This book held my attention but I only gave it 4/5 stars because I found parts to be bogged down with details.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read
