My Review: 4/5 Stars Overall

 

Back to December- Everything is right in the world with Emily. She has a boyfriend who she loves, and her life is on a set course, until her sister gets in engaged and Emily is sitting there reeling. She needs a break and she needs to get away.
Rob only wants to be normal, but that’s kind of hard to do when he starred in a movie. It takes one them literally running into each other for their lives to start to having meaning again.
Only One- I think Liam wanted to truly find love, but with past relationships and his parents relationships, he won’t admit that he wants love. Until he meets Jenna, then that has him rethinking everything.
Jenna wants to be the only girl for Liam, but she doesn’t want to tell him, for fear of getting her heart handed to her. What is a girl to do? When something drastic happens they need to decided if what they want/have is something worth fighting for.
Only one was jammed packed and a rollercoaster of emotion. I am super happy that I got to see into Liam and Jenna’s past and I didn’t have to make up my own story in my head. I love when an author does that.
Right Here Waiting- Neil growing up wasn’t the typical guy that Meghan dated, but that didn’t stop him from loving her. If only she would look his way. After high school Neil joins the army and he’s not that boy he used to be. He has filled out and has little more confidence. When he and Meghan are at the same table at his best friends wedding all bets are off.
After two failed relationships, Meghan only wants to find the right one for her. Is that to much to ask? When seeing Neil again, she just might have hit the jackpot.
Right Here waiting I think so far is my favorite in the series. I think it’s because Neil was in the army, but shh don’t tell nobody. This one had me at the first paragraph. I mean the others did to, but I feel in love with the struggle and was like seriously like will they just catch a break and live their lives. Loved it.
The Year’s Love- Both Josh and Annie had rubbed me the wrong way in Back to December. But I really did enjoy their book. It was everything a girl could ask for. The story also comes back full circle.
I am really glad that Annie did get the guy she wanted and it helped me understand why she was the way she was in the first book. Really to loose the guy you want to your sister is a tuff pill to swallow.
Overall enjoyment of these first four books was great. I loved the emotion and the dynamics of the books and getting to know all of them. Can’t wait for the 5th book!

EXCERPTS/TEASERS


Back to December

Emily
looked at Rob and couldn’t read what he was thinking. She could tell
there was something on his mind, but she had no clue what it was.


“Care
to share?” she asked, curious.



“Can I kiss you?” he replied, his voice steady.



Em was stunned. She didn’t know what to say. It had been over five
years since she had been asked to be kissed. She nodded slowly, so as
not to appear too eager, though she was, in fact, dying to kiss him.
She had been looking at his mouth quite a bit these last few hours,
and it always seemed so kissable.


Rob
leaned toward her, and she met him halfway. That heady forest scent
invaded her nostrils more thoroughly now and her brain swam. He
looked at her with a sweet smile, just a little grin that said he was
looking forward to this. She met his eyes and his smile with one of
her own, though she suspected that, as soon as he’d asked, he’d known
what her answer would be by the expression on her face.


His
lips brushed against hers, gentle at first, with just a little bit of
pressure. The gesture implied respect without stifling the desire
that raced through Emily’s blood. Her skin heated and the dampness
between her thighs, which had been present since dinner, bordered on
embarrassing. How could she want someone so much from just a simple
kiss?

Only One

They walked back to the car,
hand in hand, in an unusual silence. Jenna started to step around the
car to the passenger’s side, and Liam tightened his grip on her hand
so she couldn’t let go. Her expression said she was curious as he
drew her toward him and leaned against the car hood. She let him
guide her until her body was pressed against his and their faces were
inches apart.


His heart raced again, which
Liam found odd – he hadn’t felt nervous before he kissed a girl
since junior high. Swallowing hard, he brushed the hair from her face
like he’d done earlier. Her breath hitched, and he knew she wanted
him to kiss her as much as he wanted to do it. He looked at her
mouth, then into her eyes. They leaned in at the same time, crushing
their lips together in a long-overdue kiss.


Heat rushed through his body and
his dick hardened before she even slid her tongue into his mouth. As
their tongues danced, one hand found her ass and pulled her pelvis to
his, while the other threaded into her hair, bringing her mouth
closer, and deepening the kiss. She whimpered and gripped his neck.


The kiss lasted a few minutes
and then they needed air. They leaned apart, touched foreheads, their
breath labored.


“Wow,” Jenna whispered.


“Yeah. I agree,” Liam said.


Right Here Waiting

Meghan stared back at him as intently. Finally, she said, “What’s going on here, Neil?”

“What do you mean?

“This. What’s happening between us? Am I reading you wrong? Are you not interested in me?”

Neil couldn’t let her think that. No. Never. He’d wanted her for too long to let her ever believe he wasn’t interested, even for a moment. He pulled back, stood still and looked at her. He looked at her mouth. He wanted to kiss her, but if he waited until they were alone, she might give up on him. Danny was right, he had to stop sabotaging this.

Neil threaded his hands in her sun-kissed hair. In her eyes, he saw a desire to kiss him as powerful as his own. He leaned in, pressed his lips to hers and a wave of heat washed over him. Meghan leaned into the kiss, opening her lips, and as he slid his tongue into her mouth, Neil had to use every ounce of restraint his military training had afforded him to keep it from getting indecent.

Meghan pulled away and saved Neil from himself.


This Year’s Love

“Are you okay?” she asked.


He nodded slowly and swallowed.


“Uh huh,” he muttered.


His dilated pupils said he liked
what he saw. She grinned. In two strides of his long legs, he was
right next to her and it was Annie’s turn to gasp – he towered over
her.


He looked at her, shook his
head, then he crushed her to his body, his face a breath away. She
opened her mouth and his tongue plunged inside. Unlike the other
morning, he knew this was her and not Em. Yet, he kissed her with
even more passion, stealing her air.


Before she knew what was
happening, he lifted her off the ground, wrapped her legs around his
waist and carried her to the bed. They collapsed onto the mattress,
and when his pelvis pressed into her core, they moaned in unison.


“God, you’re beautiful,” he
breathed around her lips.
