You can never go wrong with a story by J.Adams. She creates an emotional and heartwarming story that pulls you in. Jewel will leave you with a happy ever after. Do you believe in love at first sight?

This is a modern day Cinderella story in which true love is found. This is a beautifully written story with beautiful characters who overcome trials in the beginning of their relationship. I can't wait to read another story by Jewel!

Another great book from Adams. This is a modern day Cinderella story emotional and heartwarming. And was nive to see Talisa wasn't the only one that was love hungry and Dylan was practically starved! They are perfect for each other, both ready to bare their emotions

I am a mother of eight, and grandmother, a published author and motivational speaker.

ATTENTION: Some of the titles showing up in my list of published books are not mine but are written by another author by the same name. I write clean romance and many of her titles are erotica. This is NOT cool and I have no idea why this keeps happening. If you are unsure about which titles are mine, please visit
