SOME DAYS, IT DOESN'T PAY TO GET OUT OF BED That's what crosses Clint Evan's mind the minute he takes on the four thugs holding heiress Julie Rose hostage. It isn't the danger--Clint's made the reputation by being reliably ruthless, a quality that keeps his wounds deeply undercover. What's got Clint in a lather is Julie herself. The pretty, petite schoolteacher he's been SOME DAYS, IT DOESN'T PAY TO GET OUT OF BED That's what crosses Clint Evan's mind the minute he takes on the four thugs holding heiress Julie Rose hostage. It isn't the danger--Clint's made the reputation by being reliably ruthless, a quality that keeps his wounds deeply undercover. What's got Clint in a lather is Julie herself. The pretty, petite schoolteacher he's been hired to return to her wealthy fiance is no fainting trust-fund baby. She's a bit of a hellcat, one who won't be deterred when she sets her sights on something. And her sights are set on Clint. The one rule Clint never breaks is this--don't get involved with the client. He can look, but he definitely cannot touch--even if it's driving him crazy. Keeping Julie safe until he can figure out who's behind her kidnapping means never letting her out of his sight. And the closer he sticks to the feisty, seductive woman who makes him feel alive...the harder it gets for him to ever consider letting her go...

    Just a Hint, Clint, by Lori Foster is one of my favorite books to re-read. Its a comfort read for me, and I dont think I will ever get sick of read this one. There's just so much I love about this one, but I especially love the characters. Clint is just totally heroic. Hes strong and tough and totally alpha, but also respectful of others and caring, and hes not really pushy either.

It’s a comfort read for me, and I don’t think I will ever get sick of read this one. There's just so much I love about this one, but I especially love the characters. Clint is just totally heroic. He’s strong and tough and totally alpha, but also respectful of others and caring, and he’s not really pushy either. Clint is sort of like a private investigator, and he’s hired to save Julie Rose who has been kidnapped. He totally rescues her (looking ever so sexy during the rescue) and it’s awesome. Clint has a weak stomach, though. He’s can kick some total ass, but then, after all the ass-kicking is over, he ends up throwing up. I love this aspect to his character. It’s something you wouldn’t expect from such a tough alpha male. Julie Rose is a teacher, and she’s wealthy, in a way, but she’s also ready to shake her life up. She’s always lived a cautious life, but she’s ready for adventure. Being kidnapped, though, wasn’t the adventure she was looking for. Naturally she’s in shock and upset by this experience. But luckily she’s rescued, and she rebounds pretty quickly. I really liked that about Julie. She is scared, but then she rallies herself.  And I love that Julie pursues Clint. Once she meets him, she knows she wants him, and she’s not afraid to let him know. Julie really understands Clint. She knows who he is, and loves him for it. I always end up completely shipping these two. I can just tell how perfect these two are for each other. The whole mystery aspect of the story really isn’t wonderful, but seriously, I am not reading Just a Hint, Clint for the mystery. I’m reading it for the romance, and the romance is awesome. Just a Hint, Clint just works for me in pretty much every way.This review was originally posted on Quinn's Book Nook

Avoiding falling for her? Well now. That might be a challenge. I absolutely adore Clint. He's one of the most unique heroes and one that just captured my heart from the start. He's not what anyone would call handsome, he's gruff and rough around the edges, gets queasy when he has to engage in violence (not an easy glitch when he's in rescue). But yall this guy. This guy is all heart. He's honorable and dedicated and is just so utterly sweet under that craggy exterior. He's every inch the swoon-worthy hero. Julie Rose is pretty awesome, too. By outside appearances she's a shy mousy thing. But the girl has a spine of steel. She fights back, has spirit and sass. Has a heart of gold and is endearingly innocent and trusting. She's pretty wonderful. And I loved their romance. They have great banter and chemistry. They're an unlikely pair with his gruff violent lifestyle and her softer safe life but they work. I loved that while neither was a knock out, exactly, to each other they were. They both came alive with that, too. With someone being there, trusting them, finding them sexy and wanting them. It was really rather sweet. The mystery was good, too. Random attacks, kidnapping, multiple suspects, them on the run and keeping Julie Rose safe while trying to figure out what all was going on. It was nicely done. So, the second time around I loved Just a Hint, Clint nearly as much as the first time. I adore Clint and Julie Rose. They're amazing people and it made me flat out happy seeing them together and finding love.

    I really, really liked this book. Clint Evans is one of those guys who thinks he isn't worth loving and doesn't need a woman except for the obvious. Enter one Miss Julie Rose who has been kidnapped and threatened with violence. Now Julie Rose is not the most beautiful or voluptuous woman in the world but somehow she gets her hooks into Clint and he's a goner from the beginning. This is a sweet romance that shows you how falling in love should be done. This is the first I've read in the series I really, really liked this book.

Her fiance' feels she is being held by a two bit thug that he owes money. But upon further investigation Clint finds her being held not by the extortionist, but by some men that are being led by an unknown someone. Clint quickly takes offense to their treatment of Julie and saves her by pretty much beating them all to a pulp. Julie Rose, a heiress/teacher is a proper woman with some spunk inside of her. She is fighting to keep some control on her situation during her kidnapping when a strange large man comes to her rescue. She is frightened and thankful that she has a strong rescuer. She is drawn to Clint from the first and can't help but try to continue their relationship outside of the rescuer and rescuee relationship. this is where the story got just too much for me. Clint and Julie start a relationship while he is keeping her safe and trying to figure out who is behind her kidnapping. For me Clint turned into a Neanderthal and wasn't that appealing anymore. I can only give this one 3 out of 5 stars.

    I got halfway through and DNF'd this one. I was bored but breezing through until I hit an incredibly unwieldy patch of exposition and info-dump. I had no desire to keep going after that.

    Im going to do this review a bit different from my norm. What I didnt like about the story The book can be read as a standalone but it is billed as the fourth book in the Visitation series.

What I didn’t like about the story The book can be read as a standalone but it is billed as the fourth book in the Visitation series. The heroine Julie Rose regularly mentions characters from earlier books in the Visitation series based in Visitation N.C. where I’m sure she was probably introduced to readers previously as a minor character. For me I was often left feeling like I was dropped into the middle of a social gathering where I didn’t know anyone. Many of those characters from her Visitation series make an appearance at the end of this story. The epilogue is dedicated more to enticing readers to read one of these character’s Jamie’s coming story than it is to giving our couple their happily ever after. Their wedding is an afterthought to what’s going on with Jamie. It’s not at all uncommon for authors to sprinkle in characters from their other series but in this story it often felt forced in a blatant attempt to promote the other books. Foster really didn’t stretch her imagination too far in creating our hero Clint Evans. In typical Lori Foster fashion he’s big, heavily muscled, extremely macho with a dangerous edge, gruff, a little crude and protective of the innocent and those he cares about. Nothing wrong with any of that except as an author of dozens of books her male leads seem to have a cookie cutter similarity. I will give Lori her profs for Clint’s little post violence issue. Now that was unique for a big, tough guy hero. What I liked First and foremost I loved the heroine, heiress Julie Rose. Unlike her male lead Julie Rose is a unique character. She’s not beautiful. She’s almost painfully slender with small breasts and a face that doesn’t turn heads. But as in real life with most people when Julie Rose smiles she’s beautiful. And her innate sexiness and sensuality comes from her attitude, not her looks. I loved her grit, fearlessness and compassion. I liked the fact that her great wealth didn’t impact her ability to interact and care about people less fortunate than her. In truth she had come to care little if at all about her trust fund. I loved the chemistry between Julie and Clint. She constantly befuddles our hero with her directness, honesty and common sense as well as her stubbornness. She has our hero turned inside out and upside down before he knows what hit him. I suspect the title Just a Hint Clint refers to how clueless Clint is regarding Julie Rose and his feelings for her. I liked the Robert Burns character. Okay, the guy wasn’t admirable or often likable, but he was an extremely well developed secondary character with a lot of facets to his character. Foster is very adept at writing romantic dramas where the heroine’s life is in danger. She spins an engrossing tale here. I honestly thought I knew who arranged to have Julie Rose kidnapped early on in the story so when the person is revealed I was surprised how well she had fooled me. All in all I found this a typically enjoyable Lori Foster story with romance, sex and suspense.

We start the story with her ex-fiancee, Robert, hiring Clint Evans to get her back...and if he happens to kill the guy suspected of it, so much the better. Clint is very suspicious of Robert and his motives, but is intent on getting Julie back. After one look at her picture, he feels more connected to her than anyone woman ever before. And once he rescues her, the connection gets deeper. And Julie seems to feel the same, pushing Clint's restraint to the very limits. But what if her feelings have more to do with his being her rescuer than really wanting him? There's plenty of time for him to figure it out, since the two of them have to work together to figure out who would want Julie kidnapped and why. So my first question in this is how Jamie, the psychic hermit, didn't spot this a mile away. I mean, he warned her that something was going to happen and told her to be careful, but he didn't happen to foresee her being kidnapped from her home at any point? Or realize it was happening and have the whole town up in arms? I found it so unlikely that I actually thought Julie hadn't actually been kidnapped and that Robert was faking the whole thing to get money. But apparently I was incorrect there. She'd actually been kidnapped. Clint and Julie have an interesting relationship - at first it feels like exactly what Clint fears - Julie being so traumatized that she transfers those feelings of security he gives to feelings of lust. But then she gets pissed because he thinks so and she acts like he's being unreasonable. And I was completely confused because she's talking like she just wants to have a little fun and experiment with him and he's pushing her away because he doesn't want her to take advantage of her and then she's all butthurt because he doesn't want a relationship with her. And this is in the space of 10 minutes or so. So I was a at a complete loss for why Julie should feel so rejected when she only wanted to use Clint in the first place and he made it clear he was thinking in her best interests. Then they get into their groove and go about figuring things out. I was totally going along with Clint's suspicions, but was surprised by the actual villain - a first for this series. So good job author! That being said, I was decidedly irritated by Julie when she'd slip into her "teacher persona." Just a hint, teachers don't actually behave that way just because they're teachers...they're normal people who are actually able to connect to kids and teens without getting all condescending and prissy... and they don't correct everyone's grammar. As a teacher myself, I felt rather put off by the stereotype the author seemed intent on portraying. Next thing I figure she'll be wearing tortoiseshell glasses, a blouse and skirt and sensible shoes (although that's not always a stereotype...).

It’s intriguing, intense and satisfying on so many levels. Considering that the Visitation, North Carolina series was originally released back in 2004 please don’t ever think that an author’s earlier works can or should just be left on the shelf – Lori Foster is an amazing storyteller, and she only gets better as the years pass. Julie has been a secondary character in this series, but she was not one that stood out or shouted for attention. She was vital for the parts she played earlier but she shines with her unique feisty, take charge personality in her own story. Julie has been kidnapped and Clint is hired by her former fiance to rescue her… which all seems rather straightforward, but the twists and turns along with some surprises start early in this one. All I’m going to say is do not assume anything and you’ll be fully engaged and entertained with the conclusion of Just A Hint-Clint. I loved the dynamic of Clint and Julie, they aren’t quite the opposites attract yet they are very different in their approach to life. I enjoyed watching Julie come alive as her relationship with Clint grew, she was fun to begin with but by the ending I was totally in love with this spunky schoolteacher. I adored Clint, and his unique symptom made him even more human. A man who can be protective and hard when needed, and tender, loving when with his woman… that’s a man I’ll fall in love with every time. We’ll run into a few familiar faces, and their appearance was timed and executed perfectly within the story. As I said, don’t make any assumptions, the villain is vile but for more than the obvious reasons. I was surprised, and I should be – and in truth here I was more involved with Julie and Clint to be trying to figure out the ultimate bad guy anyway. In all, I had a fantastic time in the Visitation, North Carolina world once again… and I cannot wait to open up Jamie next. I would highly recommend Just A Hint-Clint, and this entire series to Romance readers who like their heroes strong and tender, their heroines smart and capable, and the villains vile as can be. You’ll be hooked but I strongly suggest to read this series in order for people, relationships flow from one story to the next and it all makes more sense if you can read in order… that’s just my opinion. I own a Kindle edition of this story.

    Great read Clint and Julie's story was fun and exciting. Julie really got to cut loose and enjoy life once Clint rescued her. Having Joe and Jamie show up to help really upped the excitement factor. I can't wait for Jamie's story. I would recommend this story to any adult reader that enjoys action packed books with strong heroes and heroines.

He is in over his head… not wanting to lose his life, or to lose Marie, or lose his job. Clint Evans – special forces, homeland security… got in trouble 2 years later when stopped for a woman who ran out of her house away from husband’s beating… he stopped the husband, the husband cut him with a knife, he lost his temper and almost beat the husband to death, and then wife lied and said her husband didn’t do anything – after a week in jail, her parents and a few neighbors came forward with the truth about the husband beating, but he let go… he is saving money, living frugally, doing repo work (yachts, expensive equipment, cars, etc)… hired by Burns to rescue Julie, chosen by Burns because Burns hopes he will take care of Asa, whom Burns believes kidnapped Julie to make him pay up. Julie Rose – a schoolteacher who likes her job; an heiress, but first her father and then her uncle hold a tight rein on her money… she has taken a job in Visitation and made friends with many of the protecting men and their wives… she broke off her wedding to Robert, but not just because she found him in bed with someone else, she realized passion was missing in their relationship. Uncle Drew – in charge of Julie after her father’s death, but he goes over the deep end… he is fit to be tied because he doesn’t know how to handle her independent streak. He arranges for Julie to be kidnapped, and Burns to rescue her, thinking that will bring them back together. Asa Ragon / Marie Ragon – gangster and his sister… his beautiful sister was raped and his mother killed trying to protect her, and Asa is very protective. Marie is in love with Burns. Red Carter / Mojo – Clint’s partners from previous life… help him out with Julie’s rescue. Jamie Creed (next book?) / Joe Winston (previous book?) – Jamie knows the future, and warns Julie, and shows up when the game changes and Clint is at risk… Joe accompanies him. Summary: When Clint rescues Julie, (whose kidnappers were going to disregard their instructions and rape and kill her after they got the money), Julie only feels safe in Clint’s arms, and he is willing to accommodate her. She is positive, warm, charming, and not intimidated by him… and he is gentle with her… knowing she was scared the first night, he climbs into the hotel bed with her, tells her to ‘ignore his boner, as he would’ and holds her as she sleeps… and he has his first peaceful sleep in a long time. When she responds to the attraction between them, he thinks it is just hero worship – and he is jealous of the men she tells him about from Visitation – and she tells him about her plans (now that she doesn’t have a fiancé) to be daring and adventurous… but when Burns, buying more time and trying to figure out who in fact kidnapped her, asks Clint to keep her out of sight for a week, and Clint agrees. He takes her to his apartment, and is entertaining kissing her when he is pulled out of the car by 2 thugs who want to rob him… and she leaps out with a stick on the floor of truck and whacks one… and then he takes care of them… and he realizes her spirit is just fine… and takes her upstairs, and … they make love over the next day… ahhh and he is working on figuring out what is going on… and he goes to Robert, and gets the full story – what is missing? And Jamie shows up with warnings, someone takes a shot at him… and he kinda figures it out… they all go to Roberts – and there is Robert and Marie and Uncle Dean… and … the whole truth comes out… Dean is defeated and arrested… and Julie moves to Visitation – and Clint visits when he can… and they offer him position of sheriff, and she’s not sure of his feelings… and at a picnic, she tells him that she wants to be Julie Evans. ahhh

Of course, I figured out 'the bad guy' right from the start, I sometimes find the plots in romantic-suspense a bit on the 'easy' side. Sometimes the characters are stereotypical and lacking depth. I was worried that was going to happen here, but instead I found the characters to be unique, a bit more different than the usual, with good chemistry between them. (Like others here, I found the heroine a tad annoying in places. I liked his character better). And I did roll my eyes a bit at the whole 'she's rich but sooo down to earth' and 'she's a do gooder with a heart of gold out to reform the downtrodden' aspect. And sometimes she was a contradiction: tough but soft. It didn't always ring true. Anyway, it wasn't the greatest romance, but it wasn't bad either. I 've become intrigued enough to get more books from Lori Foster. I'm especially intrigued by Jamie...

She tells him she's ready to explore her sexuality, which considering the previous circumstances, is a little inappropriate. What's really bizarre is the crazy dialogue. Sometimes people are talking like normal, everyday folks. Sometimes it's just over the top nonsense. Joe shows up to help towards the end of the story & unfortunately brings Jamie with. The final confrontation is pure over the top drama. so, if you like that sort of thing, this story's for you!

    This one had me to the very end. I was blindsided by both the villain and the motive. For that alone it gets 5 stars. That the story was wonderful and very sweet was a bonus. Julie Rose has been a background character in all the books of the Visitation, NC series and she was a sweet, docile schoolteacher. She was described as being plain and not a forceful personality. Well, Lori Foster decided to kick this character up quite a bit and show us that a plain Jane type woman can really kick butt This one had me to the very end.

Well, Lori Foster decided to kick this character up quite a bit and show us that a plain Jane type woman can really kick butt when needed. Julie has left Visitation, NC and returned to Cincinnati, OH, her hometown, to make changes in her life. She broke up with her fiancée, Robert, and is planning to kick up her heels, experience new things and generally live her life to the fullest. At least until the fall when she will return to teaching. Right away she is kidnapped and held for ransom. Robert is frantic, and hires Clint Evans, a big, really scary dude to find her and return "his fiancée". Old Robert is not being exactly honest with Clint and Clint knows it. Clint finds and rescues Julie, losing his heart in the process. Until he can figure out exactly why she was kidnapped, she isn't safe, except with him.

    VISITATION/N.C. #4 - (Clint and Julie) - Clint saves kidnapped Julie who becomes the sheriff of Visitation. SOME DAYS, IT DOESN'T PAY TO GET OUT OF BED That's what crosses Clint Evan's mind the minute he takes on the four thugs holding heiress Julie Rose hostage. It isn't the danger--Clint's made the reputation by being reliably ruthless, a quality that keeps his wounds deeply undercover. What's got Clint in a lather is Julie herself. The pretty, petite schoolteacher he's been hired to return to VISITATION/N.C. #4 - (Clint and Julie) - Clint saves kidnapped Julie who becomes the sheriff of Visitation. SOME DAYS, IT DOESN'T PAY TO GET OUT OF BED That's what crosses Clint Evan's mind the minute he takes on the four thugs holding heiress Julie Rose hostage. It isn't the danger--Clint's made the reputation by being reliably ruthless, a quality that keeps his wounds deeply undercover. What's got Clint in a lather is Julie herself. The pretty, petite schoolteacher he's been hired to return to her wealthy fiance is no fainting trust-fund baby. She's a bit of a hellcat, one who won't be deterred when she sets her sights on something. And her sights are set on Clint. The one rule Clint never breaks is this--don't get involved with the client. He can look, but he definitely cannot touch--even if it's driving him crazy. Keeping Julie safe until he can figure out who's behind her kidnapping means never letting her out of his sight. And the closer he sticks to the feisty, seductive woman who makes him feel alive...the harder it gets for him to ever consider letting her go..

    I really liked this book at the start it was quite gritty but sweet and sexy too. I loved the character of Clint who was very rugged and manly (so sexy!) A real take-charge kind of a guy but in a good way not a drag-her-off-to-his-cave-by-the-hair sort of way (that's a whole different genre!). I initially really liked the character of Julie Rose too, she seemed really sweet and a bit kooky. But then we got half way in and it all when downhill from there. Julie Rose suddenly turned into a really I really liked this book at the start it was quite gritty but sweet and sexy too. I loved the character of Clint who was very rugged and manly (so sexy!)

I initially really liked the character of Julie Rose too, she seemed really sweet and a bit kooky. But then we got half way in and it all when downhill from there. Julie Rose suddenly turned into a really irritating cow-bag ( I think Lori Foster was going for feisty) and on top of that we were suddenly inundated with superfluous characters from Visitation (the town featured in her other books) I understand the temptation to revisit (no pun intended)characters from other books but in this context it just did not work for me - it felt silly and forced! If I had only read the first half of the book it would have been a 4-5 star review if I had only read the second half it would have been a 1-2 star review. So I have gone for the middle ground as I really did love the beginning.

    It was a quick read. A typical romance with just a hint of danger thrown in. It was entertaining enough although it is easy to get used to the formula of romance and then it gets tired. The heroine, however is grating. Completely unrelatable and not very likeable and I usually have a low threshold for characters so that is saying something. The characters are a little one dimensional which also pulls from the lure of the book. There is a segway into the next book in the series which I may check It was a quick read.

Julie Rose, a trust funder and schoolteacher is kidnapped and Clint Evans is hired to retrieve her for her fiance. But all is not what it seems and there is more wrong than right when hard nosed Clint is finds Miss Julie Rose. He not only finds her, he finds someone he can trust if only he would just get a hint.

    I was just talking with Brandi over at our blog and she was raving about how awesome Lori Foster is to work with and do blog hops with and get info from and ...you get the idea. Then she asked me what my favorite Lori Foster book or series was...and I was like, mmmm So many great books, but this one just popped up infront for the rest, and no review! I loved Clint...I still love Clint. Years later and a couple re-reads later and I still think of Clint!

While I know my use of !!! seems OTT, I really loved this book and this series, so I told Brandi...if she is going to read a Lori Foster series this summer, I would start with Visitation. I loved Bruce and Bryan, and Jamie...ahhhh, Jamie! Now that my friends is the way to cap off a great series! Enjoy

    This is typical early Foster. The hero is a super Alpha. The baddies arent so scary. The ending is far too drawn out. Still, this is probably my favorite book in this series. I just like Clint and Julie so much. Ive always like Julie with her grounded no nonsense attitude. I was a bit disappointed in her uncharacteristic clingy ways, but I might be clingy after being kidnapped, too. I really like Clint with his barfing after violence. That was a nice touch.

However, I could have done without the makeover montage. Why couldn’t Julie just stay plain? That might have added more depth to Clint’s character. He falls in love with the plain girl without makeup. Oh, well. You missed your chance, Foster.

    I loved Jamie so much I have gone back to the rest of the series. I really enjoyed this one (picked up a the grocery store the other day). This book takes place right before Jamie and I just love Clint. He is such a great alpha male and he comes with 3 buddies of his own. Also love the "bromances". The plot of the book is a bit off in spots, but I couldn't see the set up until near the end, which is nice.

Now I want to read Bryan's story...enjoy

    I loved this book. It was funny it was sexy and it was hot. Clint Evans is a mecenary who specializes in rescues. He likes to think he's a macho manly man, except for his tendancy to throw up after beating up the bad guys. *snark* Really, I nearly died laughing at it. Julie Rose, Clint's latest rescue, isn't delicate as Clint thinks. However, she does look at the world with rose coloured glasses. Anyway, she sees the good in Clint despite his every protest to the contrary. But, the question still I loved this book. It was funny it was sexy and it was hot.

Her ex-fiancee's money problems, his new girlfriend? For her money?

    I enjoyed the tension that builds between rough and rugged Clint and the petite school teacher Julie Rose. Clint a PI who rescues Julie Rose from her kidnappers and is protecting her is determined not to mix business and pleasure as a rule, but Julie does all she can to undermine him at every turn because she knows what she wants and that is Clint and she does more than give him a hint. This is another book in Lori Fosters Visitation Series.

    This is not set in Visitation but around one of its newest members who gets kidnapped. A wonderful well written easy read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I did work out who the baddie was pretty early on but it did not detract from this well paced intriguing read. I did love the way Julie kept swooning over the men of Visitation when talking about them, making Clint jealous without even realising it.. Liked both Red and Mojo, interesting characters. 2020. Ebook edition through library. Having reread this This is not set in Visitation but around one of its newest members who gets kidnapped. A wonderful well written easy read that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Hero beats crap out of baddie and has to be stopped from killing him.
