Thomas Eriksson thinks he has it all figured out.

"People crossed the street when they saw me. I’m not really sure why that was. I mean, okay, I might have looked a bit intimidating if I was being truthful with you. I’d changed since New York. New York represented a life that wasn’t real, not truthfully, anyway. No, New York was the “young, immature, in love, idiot" side of

Ok so I just loved Callum & Harper which was book 1 in this series by Fisher Amelie so I was so excited to start Thomas & January and although I enjoyed it, I didn't love it. The story seemed a bit rushed and I would have loved to actually get to know Tom and January better. That being said this story has drama and yummy romance, and I loved that the characters from book 1 were in this one too!

January comes from a huge family, she is the oldest of 10 kids. I really liked her, she was int

Let me start by saying that when I got out my Kindle I had intended to read The Understory by Fisher Amelie. However, I had no idea that Thomas & January was already released and since I had just read Callum & Harper last week I was more than excited to continue with "the family." I was super surprised and excited and the book did not disappoint. Tom and January are so sweet and feisty they are perfect for each other, and the ending was perfect. I love how January's siblings all have mon ...more

Awesome. Of course. This is freaking Fisher Amelie we're talking about.

What can I say? I loved it. It was perfect. Had me smiling one second and then crying the next. Her characters are always so levelheaded and that's my favorite thing about them. They make mistakes and are completely normal. But they fight for what they want and admit when they make a mistake. But not just that, there's no crazy unreal circumstances. I can totally see all these playing out in my head.

This book is absolutely adorable. The chemistry and banter between Thomas and January is fantastic and boy does Thomas have a way with words! The two of them just had me giggling myself to death. A somewhat word of caution to those that read Callum & Harper. Do not go into this book thinking it is going to be the same caliber book. On a scale of 1 to 5, C&H is a 6+. There just isn't any way to follow C&H. This is not a dig at T&J, just not fair to compare. Put C&H out of your ...more

I am a big fan of Fisher Amelie’s Callum & Harper, and was excited to dive back into her world and the eclectic group of friends that I came to love in the first book.

Tie-dye Tom is now Thomas Eriksson – successful music scout, snarky, with a massive chip on his shoulder and nursing some severe hatred. His heart was broken when the woman he loved chose someone else, and now, determined not to be hurt again, he has completely closed himself off, acting like a “hulking beast who hates the wor

Yeah! This is bittersweet! In a really good way.
I was really hooked in Callum & Harper's story and this one did too!

January is a very sweet innocent girl. I like that about her. She's pure and friendly. She's a crybaby but not in an annoying way. Yeah. I like her. the b

As soon as Fisher Amiele posted that this book was released I went straight away and bought it, I could not wait any longer. It was a long wait but damn it was so worth it. This book that I could not put down was amazing. Then again that's only to be expected from the great Fisher Ameile , she can write no wrong in my eyes . Once again she has created must read masterpiece. This is why she is in the top two of my fav authors.

I laughed. “I don’t think you want what I’m having, sweetheart.”

January is quite a typical heroine. At first. A bit of sass, plenty of innocence, and a good dose of cheekiness. But when she pulled out statements like this, I knew we were going to get along very well.

Oh Fisher Amelie. I kind of love you.

Tie-Dye Tom is no longer Tie-Dye Tom. After being forced to feel what its like to have his heart broken, he has left New York to go to Austin to be a music scout. He has left that loving persona and pretty flowers behind (from Callum & Harper) and now dresses in layers of dark clothing with a permanent scowl on his face. No longer lanky gentle Tom, he is buff, don't-mess-with-me Thomas.

January is the oldest of ten siblings. She is a masterful pianist an
“How did we both sleep on this tiny nothing,” I said out loud, my voice hoarse from disuse.
“Well, that leg was wrapped around mine,” he said, pointing to each part as he continued his explanation, “that stomach was pressed to mine, that beautiful face was buried in my neck. It was the best and worst night’s sleep of my life.” I smiled. “Good morning,” he said, smiling back.

"I knew nothing of romance, but it was love at second sight."- fun.

I went into Thomas and January's story with some extremely high expectations. How can Tie Dye Tom hold up next to Mr. Callum Unbelievably Amazing Tate. Spoiler: he's not Tie-Dye Tom anymore he is yummy Tommy ;) And you know what. Fisher did it again. She took my heart and played kick ball with it, yes you-you devious author you. It's still what I would call a Fisher Story, it's her style and feel, but it's its own in its own way.

I'll start by saying...thank goodness this book released. Last year I read Callum & Harper and quickly became invested into the lives of this group of friends. So, Fisher, THANK YOU for making this book happen. I was really looking forward to more.

We meet tie-dye Tom in C&H, but I really felt like he was still a bit of a mystery to me. In this book, I really found myself drawn to Tom. He is hurting from a broken heart. The woman he loved, loved another. So, Tom takes off to Austin to sc

Few months ago I've read Callum and Harper aka the first book in this series and I adored it. It was so heartbreaking and I couldn't stop reading it. I've realized that I have some thing for books that deal with people form dysfunctional families and hard lives. So I was so excited to read this one.

Thomas and January was a really interesting book. We have Thomas who is a guy with huge circle of friends and works in music industry but at the same time he looks so

Tie-Dye Tom. Who knew he would be so wonderful? We got a small glimpse of how amazing he was during Callum and Harper's wedding. I was surprised to see out of all the characters Tom was getting his own book. It was something I didn't know I wanted until it was in my hands. Thomas and January were a great couple and I loved them right away. I was very happy to see the whole gang again...especially Callum and Harper. Their book is one of my favorite books ever!

Finally!! Thomas & January was finally released today! This is one of those books I've been patiently waiting for since It was announced that the release date was pushed back. For those of you who are not aware of Fisher Amelie and her works, you should really change that and reader her wonderful novels.

I was thrilled to download Thomas & January today when I saw Fisher post that it was now available. I dove right into it. This book is similar to Fisher's previous novel Callum & Harp
“You revived me. You saved me. You did what I’m convinced no other person could have done and believe me they’d tried.” – Thomas

Alrighty, I just want to start out by saying this: Don’t go into this book and expect another story like Callum & Harper, or I think you’ll unfortunately be disappointed. This book’s issues aren’t nearly as heavy as in Callum & Harper; it’s a lighter romantic story. I put Callum & Harper out of my mind and tried not to compare to the two books, because they

I think that a great injustice given to books, especially those in a series, is when they are compared against one another. Such could be the case with Thomas & January. Taken on its own, if I hadn’t just read its companion book #1 Callum & Harper I would have thought it was so great. And it was a great book. But in comparing the two in the series they make up, it’s not on the same level of Callum & Harper, but honestly, not many books are

Let me start by saying that Vain and Greed by Fisher Amelie were both 5star reads for me and I truly loved them but this book for me was stupid. The context was stupid, the characters were stupid and the writing was stupid. This book was stupid.
By 5% I had nearly given up on it twice and that right there is a sign of a stupid book. As I hate giving up on a book and baring in mind my total love for Fishers writing in both Vain and Greed, I decided to bravely plow on in the hope that Thomas and J

This book was so freaking good. I fell more in love with Tom and loved January so much. Unlike Callum and Harper in which tragedy and survival brought these lost souls together, Music and attraction brings them together. Thomas is nursing a broken heart and left New York and his friends to help with it. One night he sees January and for that moment he forgets about his broken heart. January is instantly attracted to this man and wants to see more of him. One passionate kiss freaks Tom out and it ...more

Thomas and January is a great quick read, and kept moving with a decent pace. I think what kept me moving through this book was the palpable sexual tension in this book that was so similar to Callum and Harper that it could only have come from Fisher Amelie. Though I didn't feel the gripping suspense I did with Callum and Harpers story, I still enjoyed it so much I found my self reading at work on the down-low so I could find out what happened next.

Why in the heck didn't I read this sooner? I freaking LOVED it!!! It was so good. Thomas was broken hearted and a little emotional damaged. But when he meets January boy oh boy is he in for a wake up call. I loved how he fought tooth and nail with the feelings that he had. The more he felt the meaner he was to her. January gave it right back and tried her hardest to act unaffected by him, that is until she realizes its all a mask he wears.

The only thing standing in the way is something that is the hardest thing to fight. Thoughts, doubts and insecurities. Basically ones self.
