    "I love rock & roll and everything having to do with it. This book seemed like a decent story about the world of rock and the life style that goes along with it. The main character is great, it's a tale of drug use and the women in rock and the background scene."

    "This is a pretty funny little story. I liked the relationship between the two main characters, and I enjoyed the humorous parts of the story. I guess it's supposed to be a little dark, but I thought it was mostly comical. I would recommend this to others because it's a fast little read and definitely enjoyable. The writing is good and the characters are well developed. "

    "This is another fabulous and flawless novel by Courtney Walsh. I absolutely love this story, and I relate to the main character, Beth, SO much. This is a redemption story, a story about taking second chances and learning to lean on God. A lesson I am personally grateful for every day. I felt the book started out slow and was repetitive. I also found the character of Molly very annoying and wanted to just throw the book down"

    "A lonely widow finds her desires bubble up to the surface upon meeting a security specialist whose dark, scary personality only serves to feed into the woman's otherwise forbidden inner fetishes. Of course, there has to be some drama, so the guy has a dark, secret past that both draws her in and pushes her away. A story of the push and pull the couple experience that pits conflict against their burning lust for each other. This book should appear to those who like a story with a bit more passion than your traditional romance novel."

    "This may have been a better read for me if I had read it 20+ years ago when I was still in college myself. Now as an old boring person of 41, though, I just found myself wanting to smack some of the characters for being so incredibly dense. I realize that I was incredibly dense myself on more than one occasion "back in the day," but those are days better left in the past. I knew when the book was given to me to review that it was a "new adult college romance" so the age difference would be drastic between myself and the characters, but I still wanted to give it a shot since I enjoy quite a lot of books written "for" my 10 year old. I think, though, I'll stick with the kids and the old folks and leave the college crowd to those who may be able to understand them better."

This romance novel is a must read for adult women and anyone that has an interest in raising children. This will eliminate any bad notions you have and completely submerse you into a world of contemporary romance that you as a reader crave!"

I'm so glad they got the chance to fix things before it was to late. I also Love the fact that he loves that little girl like his own. The fact that she looks like him helped and hindered him but he didn't let the fact that he wasn't her daddy stand in the way. You couldn't have done a better job. I can't wait to read more from Jennifer Faye."

    "The unlikely love story of Scott and Breanne was so sweet and unexpected that it was great. Breanne went on her honeymoon alone having been left at the alter for the third time. She was done with men. Scott was at the honeymoon suite mansion to decompress by his brother after almost burning out from his job. They were booked for the same room and were snowed in and then lost electricity due to the storm. Things were not looking hopeful and got worst by the minute. All of her luggage got lost at the airport and the only clothes she had were on her back since her carry on just contained nighties for her supposed honeymoon that never happened. The servants at the house were no help admitting there was indeed a mistake made and they were both booked for the same week and same suite."

    "Well like most adult women, romance novels is one of my guilty pleasures. So when looking for a novel to read of course I was not looking for something intellectually engaging. " Snowbound with the CEO" seemed like a nice title to choose to pass my time and indulge a bit on a romance novel. It was an alright novel, I wouldn't call it the best but it had its moments and some cliche passion stories that I secretly like to read. "
