    "I love this story because it's one of those coming-of-age tales, with a twist. The main character, Jordan, is a female football star on her high school team. She finds herself in a dilemma when a cute boy moves to her school. She has to remain competitive with him to keep her elite football position, while also control her feelings for him. What a read!"

    "The author, Penny Reid, has created a cute, fun novel with very well developed characters. It is a quickly paced romantic comedy that is easy to read and hard to put down. The leading male character, Nico, is a very strong personality and really gets under the skin of the female lead, Elizabeth Finney. "

    "Princess Academy is one of the best book that has romance about childhood friends that fell for each other. This novel was recommended to me to get it for my daughter in which I did. The characters are amazing they are young, brave, and clever. There is a bit of arguments in the novel but eventually they put aside their difference and work together. A little bit of romance between two childhood friends. Would highly recommend."

    "It seems like a good book for this topic. Personally as a guy, I prefer reading romance/erotic stories rather than using pornography. And I thought the Amazon summary for this book seemed intriguing. The problem that I have with recommending this book is that it is the 6th book in a series of 7 books. It seems like it would be much better to start on book 1 of this series rather than book 6."

    "Judging by the names of the main characters, when reading a synopsis of this I thought- and hoped- that it would be a gay romance love story. I'd heard that it was about childhood best friends falling in love, and I wanted a gift for my fiance, Derrick Henderson, that was reminiscent of our story. This book was painfully heteronormative and did not deliver. -James White"

    "This is another great read from Erica James. Paradise House tells the story of Genevieve Baxter and her family who own and run a bed and breakfast in a small seaside town. Genevieve has come home to help her father and two sisters run the family B&B after her mother takes off needing a break. Genevieve herself is trying to find an inner peace following a recent tramautic event. The situation isn't helped when an old flame from her past, Christian, re-enters their lives. In support of the two leading characters are a wonderful mix of supporting characters who are all very life-like and contribute to the storyline with their own sideline stories."
