Tess walked out on her marriage when it became clear that her husband was more devoted to his military career than to her. Nat had assumed that Tess understood the demands of his job, and didn’t quite get why she left, but his marriage and Tess are the most important things in the world to him, so he’s going to do whatever it takes to get her back – even if it is kind of extreme.

Three Days, Two Nights is a short, sweet, romantic, sexy, second chance story and I truly enjoyed it. I find that ofte
With Three Days, Two Nights which is set to be released from Carina Press on the 24th of this month, MJ Fredrick once again proves the reason why I just flat-out love her stories so much. She has a talent for giving depth to her characters and has a way with squeezing out every bit of feeling from the reader that just makes for a heady reading experience.

Three Days, Two Nights is a novella, though short that managed to satisfy me in every way that counts. Nathanial Reis is a retired Air Force pi

Three Days, Two Nights by M.J. Frederick was way more graphic where the first novella was subtle. What I found to be shy or tense in the first novella was completely different in the second. In this novella, Nathan is trying to reconnect with his ex-wife Tess. With a long, complicated back story in the military that led Nathan to put his wife on the back burner as he dealt with difficulties of his career, Tess had moved on to become a powerful career woman in her own right. Nathan found an oppor ...more

MJ Frederick's Three Days, Two Nights is a fun romantic read. The story of Nat and Tess is a familiar one to me. Nat spent his life building and developing his career, and in doing so, he chose the Air Force over his wife, Tess. Eventually, it was too much for Tess, and she left him, filing for divorce soon afterwards. A year later, Nat realized his mistake and is taking the steps to win her back. Tess, however, has moved on and is on her way to work retreat. A mishap has l

So this book, ok fine, not really a book, a novella, it was pretty good actually. Nat is really sweet. After his wife leaves him, he realises that she is who he wants to be with. Hence, he comes up with this weird plan to 'kidnap' her and bring her to this island where they will fall in love again. Yes, I know I made it sound really creepy, but its actually pretty sweet!

So when they were on the island, they were practically having sex every second. I'm not joking. Every few pages or so, they wo

For being a short story, I thought the story was okay. I had a little bit of a problem with Tess and the reasoning behind why she left her husband in the first place. I guess with me being a military wife, I expect long nights and days where my husband doesn't come home. It is part of the job. So for Tess to leave Nat because he was spending too much time at work just didn't seem like a good enough reason for me. With that being said though, I did find that the story was entertaining for being a ...more

Three Days, Two Nights by MJ Fredrick
* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Tess can’t believe her luck when the pilot scheduled to fly her to her work retreat turns out to be her ex-husband, Nat. When a storm blows them off course she has to rely on Nat to keep them alive until help comes. She never expected her feelings for him to come back to the surface but she can’t lie to herself anymore, or can she?

Nat knows he screwed up and didn’t put enough eff

My Review:
At only 19,000 words, this is a really short read, but I don't feel like that fact hurt this book at all. This is a book about a couple that had a 10 year long relationship, so the time wasn't needed in the book to establish their connection. These two were already very connected...and still very much are... through their hearts. Tess and Nat were together for 10 years, when she finally got fed up with placing last against his career and divorced him. Quite honestly, the divorce blinds

Nat chose his Air Force career one too many times over his wife, Tess, basically inviting her to leave their home and their marriage.

A year later, he's realized his mistake and has come to sweep Tess off her now corporate feet. Working with her assistant, he's devised an elaborate seduction scheme that involves a missed flight to her retreat, a coincidental assignment that leaves him as her new pilot, and an "emergency" that has them landing on an island that is stocked with tents, sleeping bag

Three Days, Two Nights was okay for a short novella, but it didn't do much for me. I felt like the heroine, Tess, was whiny and selfish. She divorced her husband, Nat, because his Air Force career caused him to work late sometimes, making her decide he placed his career above her. Some of Nat's decisions in the book were questionable, making me feel that neither of them deserved too much empathy. The storyline was pretty simplistic, probably in part due to the length of the novella.

3.5 stars. I would've given this 4 stars if the author had given us an epilogue. C'mon, people, sometimes epilogues are quite needed.
This was one of those short but sweet books that make you sight in the end, even thou you will not remember them tomorrow.

The hero was a bit pushy at times and a little to much of a wanna-be-alpha but I got over it, because the heroine was no withering flower. As a whole they were flawed as much as possible and I loved them for being realistic even thou the setting was not.

I only hope that the future holds more lengthily novels from this author that will show me if she really is something specia

Nathaniel and Tess have split up due to a major lack of priorities and communication. Nathaniel wants Tess back and has cooked up a scheme to win her over. A storm throws his plan off track, but he makes due and gets busy trying to win her trust back. This is a great story to read on a rainy day. What could be more romantic than a tropical island with a waterfall? I liked both characters. Because of their past history, I believed their HEA. I recommend this one. It is pretty short with a sweet e ...more

Three Days, Two Nights was an okay read. Tess walks out on her marriage and Nat realizes to late that he wants her back he comes up with the elaborate scheme to get her back that backfires a bit, and in the end they are together. Both characters made decisions/took actions that were questionable so I had very little empathy for either of them. That being said, it’s not a bad book, would recommend to friends who like the “second chance romance” and are looking for a quick read.

This was a nice short story. I always like stories about married couples reuniting after they divorce or separate. I thought it could have had a little less sex since it was such a short story and it was back to back scenes, but overall, I thought it was a good read and would recommend it to my friends that like a little steamier reads. :)
A short, sex-filled read. Despite the short page count the story was pretty engaging. A married couple reunited theme. Their last connection came through and made the feelings believable. There was a lot of sex however. almost too much for the story.

This was no gentle kiss, but one filled with hunger long denied, lips crushing, tongue sliding deep, as if he couldn’t get enough of the taste of her.”
