I thought I was in love, I thought I was happy, I thought everything was perfect.

Dating isn’t easy but it’s especially not easy for a single mom of twin boys, with a soon to be ex-husband who’s still ar

Emily’s life collapses when she discovers she has been cheated on. Her world falls apart and she’s utterly distraught. Her husband, Conner, has betrayed and hurt her to a degree beyond her comprehension. Everything is so hurtful. She’s devastated that he decided that their relationship is over and is going to end in such a horrible way. He does say though he’s sorry, but that really is an empty word for the immense pain that he has caused her and their children.

She’s miserable that s

Holy Cow!! This book gave me a serious case of whiplash!!!!

Pretty much as soon as I started this book I knew my poor kindle might not make it and would end up being thrown against the wall. There is so much I want to say but don’t want to give any of this insane plot away!!!! As I sit here writing this review I am still seeing red and feel emotionally exhausted. I was not expecting all of these plot twists. This author had me afraid to flip to the next page because I was afrai

This was my first book by Jasmine and I was so sucked into this story I read it in less than 3 hours. I just couldn’t put it down. I remember thinking ok just one more chapter and the next thing I knew the book was over and I was screaming NO!!!

This book is a crazy ride and it’s so hard to describe it without giving too much away. Emily has been happily married to her husband for years and they share two beautiful children. She knows things have been different with her husband but she would have

My Review

I really loved this book... although it had cheating in it... which I normally HATE in book's I read... I still found I really enjoyed it

Emily finds out that her husband is cheating on her (PRICK)...

she knew he marriage was in a bit of a rut.. but she never thought he would actually cheat on her...

Now she is left hurt and betrayed ... she feels alone and also has twin boys to think of ...

Then she meets Travis... her husbands cousin...

Emily goes through so much in this book I really felt

Reviewing on behalf of Relentless book chics ramblings and reviews
Emily thought she had the perfect life. Married for 6 years with twin boys, she was happy. Then her life was turned upside down when she found out that her husband Connor was cheating on her.
She needed a fresh start, to rebuild her life, so she moved out, got a job and was prepared to be alone.

Now she’s a single mom, trying to get back in the dating game which isn’t easy and at times, very messy.
After a few disastrous one night st

I really wanted to love this book. I mean, really LOVE it. Don't get me wrong, I like. I do, but in the end it just became a so so kind of read for me.
I'm just not sure how much I believed the story in the end. There was so much going on, so many little bits of storyline crossing here and there. Too much betryal, too much everything.
It's a story choc a block full of chaos and turmoil; love lost, found and lost again.
Don't get me wrong, I was drawn into it, I read it quickly, I enjoyed the premis

All I can say is this book is wow. Emily is really put through the ringer during this book. At the very beginning of the book she finds out her husband, Connor is cheating on her. When confronted he denies it then calls out the other woman’s name when they have sex. Emily packs things for herself and her twin sons and leaves. They can never be what they were again. Trying to find a way to move on and be herself again is harder than she ever thought or realized it would be. She tries the one ...more

I received a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.

Let me just say this was my first book of Jasmine Lee's to review, and I have to be honest, it was quite the roller-coaster of emotions. But Holy Shneikies, Holy Batman, Holy Moly, just doesn't cut it for my elation for this story! I had a hard time starting the book, since I was easily distracted by my children. Once they were asleep, the gloves came off! I could not put the book down, until I finished the whole story. Even in th

I enjoyed reading this story, I was pulled into the story right off, it's a pretty short read and it goes by quickly. I felt that I t was very well written, the story is intriguing and keeps you turning the pages. Also there is a lot of things going on, I mean a lot. The characters were also well written wether you loved them or hated them. Emily is all about the men in her life, and I think she needs to be more about the Emily in her life. I really do sympathize with Emily though, she's been ...more

First I am not crazy about the cover and would not have stopped to read what it is about. Saying that, I am surprised on how much I enjoyed reading this book. Reviews and warning stated Emily would be a character you were going to like or loath. She she made some bad choices after being humiliated by her husbands affair but she had only been with Conner. What I didn't read hear much said about the selfish men in her life. All knowing what she went through with her husband but didn't stop them ...more

I was torn on how to review/rate this book, so I decided to break it into two separate parts, the story vs. the editing.
As far as the story goes, I was drawn in from the beginning. There was something about Emily that reminded me of myself in my younger days. She seems to feel that she needs a man in her life in order to be worth something, and at times she is willing to accept any man who comes along, no matter how he treats her. She seems to have a knack for picking men who are either cheating

Oh no you didn’t end Emily (Skipping Stones) the way you did! Huge cliffhanger alert!!! I am totally left hanging and I sure hope it won’t be long until the next book comes out! Book hangover for sure!

Emily is a hot mess but, all the situations that happen really makes her like that! I really feel for her. I think all the men need to step out of her life! Just so she can get a handle on her life and then she might be able to get her head together. And, what her supposedly best friend did to her!

I give this 5 love triangle stars.

Emily and Connor have been married a for a few years when she find out that he is cheating when he says another woman's name during sex. Emily had no idea that night her whole world would change and she would be on a roller coaster of a life when all she wanted to d was live a simple life with her boys.

Connor made a mistake and is now paying for it. He has tried to win back Emily but every time he gets there is one person who throws a wrench into his plans. He w

I really loved Emily's story! I still am not too sure which I want her with, Connor or Travis!! I know I am dangling off this cliff right now where the book left me and so I'll just hang on until book 2 comes out. There is so much turmoil going on in this one. Everyone has their problems and poor Emily is almost at the center of it all. I was definitely drawn in and help captive by Jasmine Lee from the very beginning. At times I wanted to shake Emily and maybe move her marbles around a little ...more

This was the worst book I've read in a while. Due to the poor editing and grammar, I struggled with picking it up to read but in the end I skimmed through it to see how it ended. I couldn't get past the grammar and spelling errors every few pages enough to enjoy anything. The story itself was also pretty far fetched, I don't understand stories where all the guys want in her pants yet the girls hate her. Sorry

This story drew me in. I read it right through and it was quite a emotional roller coaster. This book was a good drama. There is a lot that happens squeezed in. You can't help but feel for Emily and what all she goes through. I'm having a hard time with the love/hate I feel for these characters. But I do love the story. AAHHH omg I need book 2 now!

Emily (Skipping Stones Book 1) is a well written story full of pain, betrayal, and indecision. I enjoyed reading this book, though at times I wanted to smack Emily, the main character, and get her to see reason. There were times I cried with her as well. All in all, Emily is a good read, and left me wanting to read the next book.

Jennifer ~J & J's Southern Spice Blog
This is the first book that I've had the pleasure to review for Jasmine. I must say this book hit close to home for me because I'm living through exactly what Emily is. I was so connected to this story that I felt every single emotion and cried my way through this book. It sucked me in and wouldn't let me go. Definitely a must read and I look forward to reading more.
