    I really loved this story! I will forever be on the campaign that Jenny B Jones books need to be a movie or a TV show. Cause, child... I would definitely watch it every week :-). The woman knows how to combine humor and drama like a symphony. This book made me feel all the feels. The book really took on some pretty heavy issues than in her previous novels. But JBJ's humor is threaded throughout the story. I think Harper was my fav with her dog emancipation ways. I love her voice in this story. I I really loved this story!

But she also had a sweet heart and real vulnerable side of her as well. There were a few parts about her past that were just heart wrenching. And Ridley Estes... oh my! He was definitely a swoon worthy character! I can not say enough good things about this dude. I loved the way he treated Harper. I love the banter between Haper and Ridley, I was always looking forward the scenes with the two of them. And the kissing scene was the most sweet and romantic thing I have read! I'm still fanning myself. I kept thinking where was this guy when I was in high school, lol. Oh!! and I totally loved the relationship between Mavis and Harper! Mavis reminded me of Maxine Simmons from "In Between (A Katie Parker Production)" . I loved all the witty quips they would toss back and forth to each other. This book was not only a great for YA, I believe both teens and adults would love this book. My only problem with this book is that it ran out of pages for me to keep reading ;-) P.S. My only wish is I hope that there could be a spinoff book about Harper's parents. 'Cause I just want to know more about them and the future of their relationship. That would be interesting to see. Hopefully Ms. Jones reads this. (Crossing fingers). :-)

Enter Ridley, popular high school football jock. He needs help with tutoring to get his grades up, and she needs lessons on how to get a guy to notice her.

I loved the banter between Harper and Ridley. I loved the emotions that the author portrays in her YA characters. I loved getting into Harper’s head as she makes sense of her changing world. I don’t think I’ve felt as connected to a character as I have to Harper. Her reactions to her problems are so realistic and on point for her character and personality. She is not a whiny MC, but she has an inner strength that grows and matures as the story goes on. On the flip side, there are some cheesy moments…this is YA after all. The first 20%ish of the book tends to have some cheesy moments, but it gets more serious as the story goes on. Overall, I laughed and I cried (happy and emotional tears), and I fell completely in love with all the characters. I love a good coming of age story, and I’ll Be Yours hit the nail on the head. This is not a light, fluffy read. Yes, it does have a HEA-ish ending, but it’s the getting there that makes it all worthwhile. I highly recommend!

    I don't read as much YA as I used to, but there are a few authors whose new books I don't miss, and this one one of them. I love the first person POV of Harper, who is completely overwhelmed by the circumstances of her family life. I thought her character's background of being a foster child adopted into her family as an older child was so interesting, and it explained how vulnerable she is and how that insecurity manifests itself.

The unusual mannerisms and details of Harper made me completely immersed in the book. The slow revelation that Ridley is not as he seems was brilliant and shifted the dynamics of their friendship throughout the story. They challenged and supported each other in facing fears and overcoming struggles, but it is their fragile hearts that have the biggest obstacle to overcome- trust.

    Jenny B. Jones is one of my go to authors when it comes to funny and endearing stories. I can always guarantee that I'll close the last chapter with a smile on my face! This delightful story is no different whatsoever. But make no mistake that with all the sweet moments comes some really hard things these characters are dealing with. It's not an easy road for any of them, but oh so worth it to journey to the final page. I loved Harper from the first. She's riddled with doubts and fears and unknow Jenny B.

This delightful story is no different whatsoever. But make no mistake that with all the sweet moments comes some really hard things these characters are dealing with. It's not an easy road for any of them, but oh so worth it to journey to the final page. I loved Harper from the first. She's riddled with doubts and fears and unknowns, so much of her thoughts reminded me of myself at different periods of my life! Her strength though, knows no bounds, which she learns over the course of events that suddenly get thrown in her path. And her resilience and sense of humor get her through some heavy realizations and decisions. Because her past is tough and she soon finds out her present isn't all happiness and rainbows either. But she deals. She determines to muddle her way through all the yuck somehow and I loved her all the more for it. Then comes Ridley into her life and oh my! Talk about a swoony hero! Those two makes some great chemistry together, let me tell you. :) But the beauty found in their friendship is how they learn to support each other. Because Ridley is battling some hard as well and needs someone to help shoulder the burden. They seek to build on the foundation of mutual acceptance and caring they find in each other, a feeling which surprises them both. And oh how good they are for one another! Plus their banter is hilarious. Ms. Jones writes some of the best banter between characters of any writer I know! A story with lots of heart, as well as several thought-provoking moments, this book is not to be missed. Especially if you adore a cute romance and characters who make you want to reach in the pages and make everything all better. Certainly worth a few hours of your time! :) **I received a complimentary copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.

    With each new novel an author publishes, I’d imagine there are jitters. No matter how practiced one is, losing that agitation over the release of a novel likely stays with you.

No matter how practiced one is, losing that agitation over the release of a novel likely stays with you. In the Indie world of publishing, I’d guess such emotions are magnified given that, while there are many people who assist you with the story, you are in control of releasing the book you’ve poured tears and smiles into. One of my most favorite authors (ever) is Jenny B. Jones. I discovered her particular brand of bookish happiness when she was signed with Thomas Nelson (Harper Collins) and now, after many years away from the author-ing gig, she returns with a select few novels published in the Indie world. I’ll Be Yours is her latest, and by Jove, it’s not one to be missed. Harper O’Malley has scars of the physical and emotional variety. Her adoptive family has been her rock – her center, since they brought her home, loved her and accepted her when she was a child of nine. Now, as a teenager, her safe place is about to shatter her into a million pieces. Her father, the man she admired so, becomes the center of a scandal when he’s found out to be having an affair. As the football coach for a prestigious college program, Coach O’Malley’s social life is cause for immediate dismissal and Harper’s withdrawal from her father and the rest of her family which includes, mom Cristy and brothers Michael and Cole. Despite the emotional upheaval, Harper finds herself relying on high school football star Ridley Estes. Perceived as the local “bad boy,” Harper keeps her distance from him, only it turns out in order to obtain the scholarship he needs, Ridley needs a tutor and Harper needs lessons in how to snag her dream boy’s attention. Whether she likes it or not, Harper is about to discover so much more about Ridley… and in the end, his reputation just might prove her wrong. Ah, contemporary bliss. Let me count the ways I love you, dear Story. There are so many, knowing where to begin isn’t so much the challenge as knowing where to end. Typical to a Jenny B. Jones novel, the book is sprinkled liberally with darling bouts of humor that make you laugh-out-loud because the particular brand of happy she consistently spreads is that one bright spot of sunshine a reader chases. Coupled with this is a deep, poignant story I didn’t expect because I went into this novel “blind.” I knew it had something to do with football, there’d be romance and its cover bore the name of Jenny B. Jones. That was all I needed. "I think God speaks to us all differently, and I heard him first in the music." - Jenny B. Jones The heroine Harper (who, by the way has a great name) isn’t the average contemporary YA leading lady. No, Harper has a messy past, a past that leaves her guarded and careful. She doesn’t welcome forms of physical affection, and is struggling with ways of connecting with the boy she is crushing on (a boy who needed three names just to “contain all the wonder” of him). This is where Ridley’s particular set of skills come in handily and with it, a series of events are set in motion that will rework Harper’s heart. If you’re looking for something to compare this to, I was often reminded of the recent film adaptation of The DUFF. Not to slight this novel, while the surface is similar (a boy helping a girl capture the interest of her crush), this is where the similarities stop. I’ll Be Yours is about forgiveness... it’s about the healing that leads to forgiveness... and it’s about a boy and a girl discovering who they are as they step up and into a new phase of this crazy thing called life. Though the final chapter completes this story with grace, I admire that there is also an open-ended quality to it allowing the reader to assume what they will, but enjoy the warmth the conclusion wraps us up in. Sincere thanks to the author Jenny, and Rel for providing a complimentary copy of this book for reviewing purposes.

    I really, really loved this book! It's a tad bit like "A Cinderella Story", with the football star Ridley and (self-proclaimed) band nerd Harper who don't seem to have much in common but really do. The story goes deeper, though, with Harper battling the scars of her past along with a terrible betrayal, and with Ridley having some secrets and family issues of his own.

I really enjoyed reading about the camaraderie between Harper and her family, friends, dog shelter coworkers and her dad's football team, and concluded the book wishing that I could be as witty as Jenny B.

    I LOVED this book. It made me laugh countless times and made a cry a time or two as well. I adored the character of Harper. She was hilarious and spunky and my heart broke for all she had gone through in her past. The story sucked me in from the beginning and I devoured it. There is a a reason why I love Jenny's books and this a prime example. Her humor can not be beat and her stories have a ton of heart. I am only sorry it took me so long to get to it.

    You know, sometimes there will be books you come across that manage to make you both laugh hysterically at moments so funny you wonder if it’s real, tear up with empathy for characters you can’t help but adore, and overall cause your heart to swell with just so many FEELS. Jenny B. Jones manages to give us a story that does all that and more with each her books, and I’ll Be Yours is no exception. Before I get into all the reasons I loved this book, let me start by telling you a little bit on wha You know, sometimes there will be books you come across that manage to make you both laugh hysterically at moments so funny you wonder if it’s real, tear up with empathy for characters you can’t help but adore, and overall cause your heart to swell with just so many FEELS. Jenny B. Jones manages to give us a story that does all that and more with each her books, and I’ll Be Yours is no exception. Before I get into all the reasons I loved this book, let me start by telling you a little bit on what it’s about. Harper O’Malley considers herself to be a smart nerd with issues. She’s sixteen and never had a crush until now, and it’s on Andrew Levin — fellow band geek and her perfect guy. Harper wants to be his girlfriend so badly, she makes a crazy deal with popular and super-attractive football jock, Ridley Estes. In exchange for the tutoring sessions he needs for a college scholarship, Ridley agrees to teach Harper how to snag a guy. But just when things are looking up, a scandal involving her college football coach father rocks her world and brings up past fears she’s shoved back for years. As Ridley lets her into his less-than-perfect world, and she in turn begins to trust him back — Harper doesn’t know what to do. Can she let go of the past enough to realize she doesn’t need the safety of a picture-perfect relationship, just a real one with a guy who’s perfect for her? I’ve adored Jenny B. Jones and her novels ever since reading Katie Parker Production series when I was thirteen and knew as soon as I saw her latest release that I couldn’t miss it. Let me tell you, her writing magic is still alive and strong! I started cracking up on the first page. My sister even turned to look at me like, “already??” Why yes, already. This story was cute, cute, CUTE from beginning to end! The chemistry between main characters was undeniable. (Can we just talk for a sec about that kissing scene, though???) I loved Harper’s character growth — her facing the gritty past and finally realizing the strong, courageous, intelligent, and worthy person she’s always been inspired me. Everything from Harper and Riley’s dog-saving escapades to their hilarious how-to-date lessons was magnetically written and made me feel as if I was apart of the story. It was the perfect blend of humor, sweet love, and the power of forgiveness and hope. Hands down, I loved this book and would recommend it to ANYONE, but particularly to those who like YA lit (because then you definitely *mustmustmust* read this adorable book). As soon as I finished the last page, I wanted to pick it up and start all over again. Another A+ read from one of my all-time favorite authors, I’ll Be Yours is one for the books and not to be missed! *I received this book free in exchange for my honest review.

    Harper O’Malley is clueless when it comes to boys… you’d think as the daughter of the football coach she would know what to do and how to talk to them considering boys are always at her house. This year she’s ready to make the move and have her first boyfriend and Andrew Levin seems like the perfect candidate. He’s a band geek, just like her, but how can she make him hers when she can’t even figure out what to say to him? Ridley Estes is the star of the high school football team and he’s set to Harper O’Malley is clueless when it comes to boys… you’d think as the daughter of the football coach she would know what to do and how to talk to them considering boys are always at her house. This year she’s ready to make the move and have her first boyfriend and Andrew Levin seems like the perfect candidate. He’s a band geek, just like her, but how can she make him hers when she can’t even figure out what to say to him? Ridley Estes is the star of the high school football team and he’s set to go places, but only if he can get his grades up and get off the bench. He’s got his heart set on Harper’s dad’s team for reasons he can’t disclose. When he offers lessons in love in exchange for tutoring Harper just can’t decline… can she? I totally picked this book up on a whim and I’m so glad that I did. Jenny B. Jones weaves quite a story here… This book tackles quite a few heavy issues, but she does it in a way that isn’t overwhelmingly heavy if that makes sense. Adultery, Abuse, an MIA parent … those are the big ones, and I thought each were portrayed within the story in a realistic way. Very early on you find out Coach O’Malley isn’t exactly the guy everyone thought he was. He’s made some recent bad choices that have affected the family in a huge way and much of the story is Harper trying to come to terms with this. I thought Jones did an amazing job of portraying Harper’s struggle with learning the man she idealized is really just human like the rest of us. Additionally, Harper is a former foster child who was adopted into this family, but her insecurity as to where she fits in when the family isn’t as solid as it was, was really well done. Ridley was also a wonderful character. I totally had a huge crush on him for all kinds of reasons… many of which I’m not really able to spill here. I will say that even though he’s portrayed as a huge heartbreaker, he’s not exactly the person everyone thinks he is. He’s got a lot more on his shoulders than any high school senior probably should, and I loved that he was able to spill his struggles to Harper. I know I mentioned earlier the guy that Harper thinks is perfect for her, but I am happy to say that I never ever felt any kind of connection to Andrew… even when he was trying to be sweet, I wasn’t really buying it. Sure he was the catalyst to Ridley and Harper initially connecting, but he really was just a filler guy. So those of you worried about any kind of triangle, you truly have nothing to worry about here One thing I would have liked to learn more about toward the end was the fate of Harper’s parents. I will definitely be checking out Jones’s backlist as I felt her storytelling was just wonderful. I’m looking forward to seeing if I connect to her other stories as much as I did this one. If you’re looking for a sweet story filled with heart and tons of emotion, look no further and grab this one now!

    Harper is our protagonist and she thinks she has everything solved when it comes to love, when Andrew arrives at her band class she’s sure he’s the one for her; he seems calm, sweet and has good grades… until Ridley, the football star of the school asks her for help with homework, she accepts but Ridley has to help her with her crush. Harper is not so excited about this arrangement since Ridley is the type of guy she would never like to go out with he’s the handsome popular guy of the school and Harper is our protagonist and she thinks she has everything solved when it comes to love, when Andrew arrives at her band class she’s sure he’s the one for her; he seems calm, sweet and has good grades… until Ridley, the football star of the school asks her for help with homework, she accepts but Ridley has to help her with her crush. Harper is not so excited about this arrangement since Ridley is the type of guy she would never like to go out with he’s the handsome popular guy of the school and she’s ‘out of his league.’ Until things start to change and she realized that Ridley is not that bad to hang out with and that she might have started to develop something for him. He is up to Harper’s crazy dogs rescues and to share his personal life with her…eventually they see themselves sharing swoon-worthy kisses. “I smiled at my champion, but he just shook his head and muttered more words in Spanish. I was pretty sure he either called me a beautiful tropical flower or a raving lunatic. Sometimes I get my nouns mixed up.” Now, not everything is romance because Harper’s family has to confront a lot of problems and Harper sees herself trying to forget someone who hurt her all of this trying to fix the family into what it was before. I loved Harper’s determination to save dogs and I adored the relationship she had with the team how they were like brothers to her and I also loved Ridley and how he was with his sisters. I’ll Be Yours is fast, fun and romantic a book about love, forgiveness, hope and new experiences.

    I positively loved this book! I was sucked into the story from page one, and I couldn't put it down (or stop listening, actually!) until I finished it. The story was full of tension and emotion. I cried a few tears throughout the story, but I also laughed out loud at the hilarious humor. The characters were real and engaging. I will continue to think about Harper and Ridley for a long time.

The writing was absolutely superb, and I plan on reading more of Jenny B. Jones's books. If you like young adult books or if you just like a really awesome story, I highly recommend this book.

Jones is a popular author in the Christian YA market due to her humor and sass. I personally would say her books are in between the secular market and the Christian market in terms of content. I always have difficulty with some of the content found in her books and this one was no different than past books. There definitely was content I didn’t think was needed and I would have liked seeing more faith content.

    Only read if you're looking for a light, predictable, fluffy read, nothing more and nothing less. Very trope-y but I couldn't help loving it, it was just what I needed to get rid of my book slump. Only read if you're looking for a light, predictable, fluffy read, nothing more and nothing less.

    This book was... everything you could ever want in a book titled "I'll Be Yours." Really, it's laugh-out-loud funny, yet emotionally deep, with swoony romance, but also strong platonic ties. Our heroine was very relateable, though her blatant dishonesty and proneness to make superficial promises did bother me a lot.

She almost made it up with her constant clever come-backs to everyone and everything. The hero was perfection. The perfect bad boy, if you please. But there's always more underneath the initial perception... The dad. Oh my goodness. So much anger was stirred. I completely condoned every time the heroine acted out against him, which just goes to show that there's a reason I'm still being sanctified... Anyway, if you love rom-coms with heart, READ THIS. Please. Do yourself the favor.

    “The wrong boy will bore you or annoy you," Mom said. "But the right one? He'll make you laugh, make you feel special.” Stories like this is why I love to read. And when there's a good writing involved - it's a winner! I highly recommend this inspiring and sweet story. “The wrong boy will bore you or annoy you," Mom said. "But the right one?

You know how sometimes you don't realize how hungry you are until that first smell of pizza? Well that was me reading this book. As soon as I started it, I DEVOURED it. Couldn't stop reading!! I feel like it's been a long time waiting for a new full-length novel from Ms. Jones, and I didn't realize how much I'd missed her writing! She writes hilarious, romantic, real stories that leave my heart pitter-pattering...in this case, over a boy named Ridley. Ridley and Harper's story was perfectly imperfect. I love how their story began with the agreement...Harper will tutor Ridley in one of his college prep courses, in exchange for Ridley helping Harper win the guy she's crushing on. They had great banter and great tension...but they had more. They both come from backgrounds of hurt, distrust, and feelings of unworthiness. Both wanted to hide their secrets from everyone, but both ended up finding the perfect confidante in each other. And on a romantic note...that first kiss--the tutorial?? Ummm, I may have stopped breathing for a second. And I may have re-read it. It was so sweet and so utterly romantically swoon-worthy. And Ridley was utter book boyfriend perfection. Sweet, confident, puppy-rescue-aiding, football-playing, sister-caring, heart-stoppingly (stop trying to autocorrect me, iPhone. I'm going to make stoppingly work and you can't stop me)-good looking. And Harper. She was sweet, sassy, and so vulnerable, I could squeeze her (even though she'd quickly back away from me)...she wanted to rescue everyone and everything. Because she herself had been rescued. But there was so much more to the story than just Ridley and Harper falling for each other...both are dealing with major family issues. Real life issues, real life hurt. My heart broke for Harper along the way as she felt unsure of whether or not she was worthy of love, even from her family. But her therapy session where she has her major breakthrough was so great. And the O'Malley's were a great family. On a side note, I loved the relationship between the college football players and Harper. And Mavis. She was downright sassy side character awesomeness. This book was the YA breath of fresh air I needed. It's heading to the top of my favorites list along with Kasie West. Definitely a re-read for me. Well done, Ms. Jones! Please hurry and write more. Things like your normal, everyday life aren't that important when stories like this need to be told (and read). ;) And let's just close with this amazingness: “You can walk away now, and I’ll leave you alone. But you stay, Harper, and I’m not letting you go.”

    Absolutely loved this book! It was really cute, but had surprising depth that I wasn't expecting. There was enough humor to keeps things from feeling super heavy, but serious and real circumstances kept this book from being just a fluffy romance. I thought it was well balanced and I loved the variety of characters and personalities in this book. The main characters had great chemistry and it was easy to dive into this story and get lost in it! Absolutely loved this book! It was really cute, but had surprising depth that I wasn't expecting.

Harper is such a great character with an immense heart and witty sense of humor, I couldn't put this book down once I started reading her story and loved how Jones put it together :) This book made me cry, made me laugh, then made me cry some more. This is a YA book, but the story is so much deeper than any typical book of this genre. It's beautiful, it's sweet, it's sassy, it has flawed heroes, it's tender and it has a nice happy ending (would've loved more story at the end beyond what there is but only because I truly got to love these characters and wanted to read more about their lives after some much needed revelation came through). It also gets an award for THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FIRST KISS OF ALL TIME.....tender, sweet and electrifying. It was so touching it blew me away. Most adults never experience such a precious kiss, but after reading this book your standards will go up to a new level, it's just that good. Highly recommend this book and so grateful for authors like Jones who have the heart and courage to write it! Not everyone will love this book as I have, but I still think everyone should read it, the love and healing in its pages are one of a kind.

Harper will steel your heart, along with Ridley and a few others. There was a sweetness to their friendship and relationship. There were tingles too! Jones brought truths to life in a very organic way; making the themes of fear, overcoming, loving, forgiving all too real and relatable. I did not want this story to end!

    Cute, funny and a little sad in places but mainly a light fluffy read. I did skip some cheesy dialogues but I never felt the urge to DNF so overall it was an enjoyable albeit predictable book.

    I mostly wanted to read this book because of the beautiful ass cover. I'll Be Yours was a really cute book. Beyond predictable and cliche.. but cute. So it's about Harper wanting a specific boyfriend: the new guy. His name is Andrew if that helps. Unfortunately for her, she's out of his league - WHO TALKS LIKE THIS? Especially in high school.. were people really out of other people's leagues then? Even now? Are we playing baseball or soccer and I didn't even know? Surprisingly, no really.. color m I mostly wanted to read this book because of the beautiful ass cover. I'll Be Yours was a really cute book. Beyond predictable and cliche.. but cute.

Oh and his name is Ridley - which makes me think of the girl from the caster chronicles.. and I was starting to get annoyed while reading this book. Well, whatever, these two stike a weird ass deal: he gets help school wise.. and she get's help boy wise? Again, cliche AF.. been there, done that.. can I get a book with something new and different please? Do I even need to mention how this book ends? IT should be completely obvious so I'm not going to. Harper and Ridley were cute. They had fun banters with each other. Overall, it was a cute book.

    I can't. This book has such great reviews but I can't. This is going in my DNF pile. This is spoilery! Watch out. Here's the deal. Families are messy. When your dad bites into temptation & has an affair with another woman. That screws things up big time. Fights ensue. Words that should be left unsaid are thrown out like grenades. Tempers flare & it brings out the absolute WORST in people. But no the O'Malley's take this one on the chin. Yeah, Harper is mad at her dad but she's not mean to him. S I can't.

Tempers flare & it brings out the absolute WORST in people. But no the O'Malley's take this one on the chin. Yeah, Harper is mad at her dad but she's not mean to him. She tells him her hard truths but in the nicest way. She doesn't yell or throw things. Her brothers seem to already have moved on & just want to go back to being a perfect family. The book was just so cliched & awful. "I've never had a boyfriend! I don't know how to act around guys!" Says the girl who eats dinner with a bunch of football players every Sunday. Then there was her whole animal rescue. She is just the mother Theresa of animals. That lady with her stuck up nose looking for a pedigree dog in a shelter, yeah let's just show how great Harper is by throwing in the evil mean rich woman. We get it. Harper is a savior of animals. Maybe the book got better. But I flipped to the end to see and just got an earful of Marcus telling Harper how great her dad is. So he cheated? People make mistakes. He's still there for her! He's still the guy she calls when she needs help. Men are pigs. Her dads a dick & I was really hoping her parents relationship would end in a divorce. Listen there are two types of cheating. There is the I've been married for 10+ years and this seems like a good idea. And after it's done the person realizes what a giant awful mistake they made. That, IMO, is forgivable. I mean you still hurt your spouse but that is a mistake. Then there is the affair cheating. Where you are constantly cheating on your spouse over & over again both sexually & emotionally. This is not a mistake. This is a decision made over & over again at the expense of your spouse. Their is no coming back from that. Harper found a pic of her dad & the girl from when he won the championship. That would make this a months long affair. Then Harper called him out and said she saw pics of him & the woman & he straight up LIED to her & then when he realized he wasn't getting out of it he was all "You don't understand! She had no one." Barf. This man is awful. Then Marcus went on to be like "Your dads awesomeness is what makes him an O'Malley & your an O'Malley! Do what does that make you?" & Harper was like "Awesome!" I'm paraphrasing but that was the gist of it. The whole book was so cheesy it made me want to puke.

    I have complicated feelings towards this book. I know that makes it sound like I'm talking about having a crush on some weird dude that plays xbox and belches but is also really attractive , but just bear with that phrase for a second. On one hand , Jenny B. Jones is the author who influenced my childhood the most. When I was younger , I read all of her novels over and over again. My paperbacks of the charmed life series are stained and tattered. The Katy Parker series made me sob like a baby. L I have complicated feelings towards this book.

My paperbacks of the charmed life series are stained and tattered. The Katy Parker series made me sob like a baby. Luke Sullivan is still my ultimate boy crush. I can remember whole passages of my favorite scenes. In fact , I used to recite them in my head when I had trouble falling asleep. True story. I was totally obsessed. On the other hand , ( and this feels kind of sacrilegious to say) I didn't like this too much. I don't want to give it a bad review , though. It was really sweet and lovely , but maybe filled with too many conversations about the theme of the story . This hurts on so many levels , so I'm just going to say that on a whole , as an author , Jenny B. Jones takes the cake. I will always have her books on pre- order and I will always be a mega - crazy fan , even if this novel wasn't my favorite of hers. So yeah. I recommend reading The Charmed life series and The first three books in The Katy Parker series first , then Save the date and There you'll find me ( cause they are stand -alones but also connected) , then Just Between you and Me , and by then you'll probably have a brain freakout about how good they are and want to swear your undying allegiance to Jenny B. Jones. Just kidding. ( sort of)

    OH the feels with this one! I think I’ve found another favorite. Not only is this a blooming love story between Harper and Riley, but it’s about family, bonds, and obstacles they all have to overcome together. Harper was adopted by the O'Malley’s, who’s a famous coach of the state. You see the bond between her, her two brothers, parents, and the whole football team. It sucked me in from the get go! She wants to be with the new guy, Andrew, but has no idea how to deal with boys. Enter Riley, who needs OH the feels with this one! I think I’ve found another favorite.

But Riley… he has more to him and a dark past that just makes you connect with him even more. They make a deal, she tutors him while he teaches her. Yes, kind of like the other betting books you’ve read, but I think this one gives and shows SO much more. The drama with her biological mother and now her Dad, it just makes you feel it all with her. The ending I felt like I needed more, but it was definitely an HEA. I love the animals incorporated in it! Just made their bond that much stronger! Squeeee! This gets 4 PIGGIES!!
