Jason Thorn...my brother's childhood friend. Oh, how stupidly in love with that boy I was. He was the first boy who made me blush, my first official crush. Sounds beautiful so far, right? That excitement that bubbles up inside you, those famous butterflies you feel for the very first time - he was the reason for them all. But you get to live in that fairy tale world only until they crush your hopes and dreams and then stomp on your heart for good measure. And boy did he crush my little heart into pieces.

sometimes you just need a swoony, witty romance for a quick read. I loved the energy, the comedic underlying and the story as a whole in General! ❤ of course Sebastian York was fantastic as always. It was my first book read by Lydia, loved her!

Jake Weston and I met under a cloud of cliches: Boy meets girl. Boy charms girl. Boy screws girl. He was the sexiest, cockiest man I'd ever encountered, but I had no idea he was a senior pilot when we met. No idea we worked for the same airline, and he had secrets just like me.

pun intended. I really do love Whitney G! Great way to end my year with this one. Definitely not a typical romance story. I love the not so much friends with benefits layout of this, definitely a unique storyline that I apply to Whitney, reminds me of Reasonable doubt, she has a fantastic way of setting up the theme and plot, that keeps you attentive the entire way! You cam never go wrong with Joe as a Narrator, Erin Mallon is fantastic as well.

After moving to Austin following six months of unemployment back home, Iris Taylor knows she should be glad to have landed a job so quickly... even if the business is owned by a member of the same motorcycle club her estranged father used to belong to. Except Dex Locke might just be the biggest jerk she's ever met. He's rude and impatient, and he doesn't know how to tell time. And the last thing they ever expected was each other.

I met Bianca in an elevator. She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck. The beautiful raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed. She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she'd dubbed "Mister Moneybags" - her afternoon appointment. Bianca told me how much she hated Dex's type - snobby, over-educated, silver-spooned men who didn't appreciate the simple things in life.

Not gonna lie, I really expected this to turn into a completely smutty book from the title and cover. Fantastic story, I wasn't expecting the big twist toward the end. I love the chemistry between Dex and Bianca. It was an Insta attraction but not insta-love. which is highly over done. I would definitely recommend this to others!

Promises are lies dressed up for the party. Secrets poison the fairest of fairy tales. Lies stain the purest of loves. I've paid the ultimate price for my choices.

He awakens feelings in me I know I shouldn't have. I yearn for a future without guilt. With him, I dream of a love untainted. Regret is a far-reaching emotion. It barrels through time like a blazing comet, and its path isn't always straight.

Perfection. One word. Three syllables. Every reason why I'll never have the one thing I truly want. I stand dutifully on the pedestal he's built, waiting for the day he truly sees me. Then one amazing night, he lets down his walls, only to leave me the next day. Years have passed, and I've tried to move on with my life. But I still dream of him. I still miss him everyday. The memories haunt me. How can I look to the future when my past remains a mystery? The time has come to find the boy who stole my heart and ran away without a word.

Beautiful continuation into the over series. This very well could be read without having to read Hope Over Fear. I loved getting to know Alex a bit more and learning her story. The depiction of what Soldiers go through after war was heartening. Beginning to end had me eager for more. Beautifully written and Beautifully narrated!

I absolutely loved every thing about this book. The narrator was above par! She captured the emotions of Sarah so well, I felt beyond immersed in the story as it was told. A beautiful story of overcoming insecurities and self doubt, finding yourself and finding where you belong. I'm completely in love with every character and definitely did not want this to end but I am happy with how it ended and would recommend to anyone! This was my first time reading J.A. DeRouen and I can't wait to dive into her other works.
