So before I start, you know that malaise that affects bookworms sometimes where you just can't concentrate on your favorite genre and it isn't the book's fault or the author's fault, it's just that your brain will not allow you to concentrate and you have to pause and do a palate cleanse with another genre before you can finish the one you're on? Yeah. That would have to happen with my first ever ARC. So, a book about WWII and an Urban Fantasy later and I was finally able to concentrate ...more
Lizze had a crush on her brother's friend, Nic, when she was 17 he first asked her to dance with him at Rogan and Angie's wedding.
I like: I liked the way Ms.Lexxi Callahan told story. whenever I thought, oh no, cliche was going to happen, the story line would turn the OTHER way ...more
I always find it fascinating when you read the description of a book and the actual storyline isn't quite what the description gives you. Such is the case with Solving for Nic. Honestly, I don't think my synopsis is quite what the book is about...there's a lot going on in this book; so much so that it took my a few tries to sum it all up. Very busy storyline.
Nic Maretti has craved Lizzie Sellars for years. His first encounter with her was when she was seventeen years old but knowing sh ...more
A story of Lizzie who was a smart (math genius),sweet, funny and beautiful. The hero Nic, oh my, he was incredible. Italian (need I say more) rich, sweet, alpha and knows how to get his girl. These two together where beautiful to behold.
They have known each other for years. Having met at his sisters wedding and danced one dance, they each where impacted by the o ...more
Lizzie who was a smart math teacher with a hint of sweet, funny, innocent and beautiful. Nic.....Italian, rich, sweet, alpha, playboy/bad boy rep and knows how to get the girl.
Their history are that they have known each other for years. Encountered at his sisters wedding and danced one dance, instantly attracted to each other but Lizzie was seventeen at the time. Later on in the y ...more
Here we have Nic. He's a 'love 'em and leave 'em' type guy. Seeing that Lizzie was way too young and inexperienced in book 1 to start a relationship, we learnt he held back, mind you, Lizzie's ...more
*Dreamy sigh* Nicolas Maretti... I LOVE you.
Actually, Lexxi Callahan, I love this book. While I enjoyed the first book, Sweetened with A Kiss, I felt like there was more there where this author is concerned. (As in, I felt there was a lot more potential there.) Thank goodness, I was right. I truly enjoyed this tale of a super smart woman who hides the true extent of her intelligence from... pretty much everyone. Especially Nic Marietti, who she has had a mad crush on for as long as she can re...more
I loved this story! You've got a fabulous combination of sweet virginal Lizzie and suave, charming Nic -but who is really holding all the cards? One might expect it to b ...more
Not an unbiased five star....just was in the right mood and had the right environment to enjoy this book to its full extent...or even more.
I think I am in the minority and I actually liked book 1 better than book 2. I would have liked Lizzie to respect that giant brain of hers a little more. We only got to see that side of her for a short time at the end. So far this series does have heroes that are right up my alley though. Love their growly, angry manliness. I would like Jared now, please. And maybe Grant??

This book was one of the first that I had requested on Netgalley. I love romances, where the alpha male doesn't know what hits him when he crossed paths with a strong female, who could just be 'the one'.
Honestly, speaking I never even looked at Goodreads before starting this one. It was an impulse pick late night when I was unable to sleep.
So for the first 20-30 pages ...more
Just keeps getting better. I was gifted this book for an honest review.
I hadn't read the first book before I offered to read this book, so I downloaded book one....which I encourage you to do RIGH NOW......and fell in love. So, immediately after finishing book one I jumped right in to Solving for Nic, and just fell further.
When I say that, I'm saying I'm in love with this writer's style of writing. She spins pure magic with words. The detail, the wording, the images, the Frank, the ...more
Solving for Nic is book two in the Southern Style series by Lexxi Callahan. I highly recommend reading Sweetened with a Kiss first because, well, you REALLY, REALLY want to meet Stefan Sellers. In addition, it will introduce to the characters in this story and give you a better understanding as to who people are and why they are around.
So, Solving for Nic... Excellent read for me!! I was given this book to review and realized there was one befo ...more

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Contemporary Romance.
I like books with depth, that make me think and that really get into my psyche, but sometimes I just want a fun read, one to relax with that doesn’t need too much thinking about to enjoy the story. This book was perfect for that. In fact reading it I realised I’d missed that it was the second in a series and have just downloaded the first from amazon while its free – ba ...more

I enjoyed falling in love with Nic and Lizzie. Lizzie is an adorable math genius who has been holding out for her shot at Nic for quite some time. Nic is an intense businessman who doesn't expect much from the women he normally dates.
What I loved about this book: Lizzie, she had justifiable insecurities and she dealt with them in a just the way you would expect from a 21 year old virgin. Nic, he's protective of those around him. His emotional hang-ups made sense and weren't over dramati ...more

This was very enjoyable read. I absolutely loved it. It took me a little while to figure out all the characters, but I loved everyone of them. Lizzie has had a crush on Nic since she was 17 and now four years later a passionate love affair starts. They both have doubts and reservations, but it all comes together and they find that everlasting love. This is my first book by this author and I have to give her a big thumbs up, she di ...more
Lizzie is about a decade younger than Nic. They met at a swanky social gathering years ago and danced together. At the time, Lizzie’s dad gave Nic that timeless, fatherly ...more
I liked Lizzie and Nic. I liked the POV switch off and the general plot. I loved the epilogue. I didn't like the constant thoughts of how amazingly hot/sweet/demanding/innocent the other person was. It got painfully annoying and I did end up skimming a bit here and there.
I think I would have enjoyed it more if I knew what the overa ...more
Loved loved loved Lizzie and Nic!! There's nothing better than a spin on the classic geek with a crush on hott guy story. The fact that Lizzie's a math genius who's unable to comprehend the lifestyle and amount of money Nic has is not lost on me. Solving for Nic is definitely the favorite of the two. It's pure romance and steaming attraction that you can thoroughly enjoy without all the extras and major complications you get from a lot of stories these day ...more
This book kept me awake last night because I simply could not put it down! The chemistry between Nic and Lizzie was amazing! The main reason I am giving this book 5 stars is because in most romances, alphas like Nic end up being smarter and wiser than their women. In this book, the heroine is a genius and the hero is not only supportive, but gets major points for being so proud of her.
I am so looking forward to Jared's story!
This author gets better with each book. Nic and Lizzy was such a great read. Full of smiles and some angst. Touching moments of emotional love and really two. HEA for the price of one. Rogan and Angie resolve their issue in this book also. Nic seems detached but with his background who wouldn't and Izzy is so much more than the ditzy party girl little sister than she seemed. I read in one sitting and can't wait for Jared's story.
