I am the author of this book. I hope you enjoy it and are looking forward to the sequel!
Tough Critic Book Reviews
Two-star plot, five-star heat, and a four-star ending!

First let me address the plot type situation. It was literary brain freeze. I am not a fan of insta-love! Insta-lust...maybe, but I just can't do the love at first sight thing. It's like eating ice cream (hehehe...cream) way too gives you brain freeze. It needs to be savored, enjoyed, licked sensually and slowly from top to bottom, but that's just me. Some of you suck down your cream in one bite and absolutely love it. You go you!!

I'm not a big believer of love at first sight kind of thing, BUT November "Ember" Harris and Bowan "Bo" Cavanaugh were made for each other! WOW, those two had sparks the minute they touched and the first time they sang just knew something more than lust was happening. Goes to show how wonderful the writing was, to make all this believable.

November Blue is the kind of female character you LOVE to read about. She's funny, sarcastic, passionate and LOYAL! The way she is with her best

I felt the author "forced" the relationship between Bo and Ember. I got their attraction. They had many things in common. It was kinda cheesy with the words they spoke to each other and the ending I didn't get. The "OMG" moment was not what I thought would destroy their relationship. It was a meh read. Not bad but I'm glad it was a free read. I will read the second book as long as it's free or $.99. *shrugs each his own*

I bought this book not really knowing much about it's premise, and whoa nelly - I didn't see that coming. I also didn't see the cleverness, humor and down right excellent writing awaiting me with each turn of the page. When I began, I liked how Randall drew me in very subtlety, then made me really think. Humm, that's always a reader's least for me.

November Blue is beautiful, smart and incredibly witty; making her immediately likable. Her inner banter was laugh out loud funny and I lik

This is one of those books that leaves you with a smile on your face. I like that. It’s a story that made me just feel several things throughout.

November Blue is a free-loving spirit. She is intelligent, gorgeous, and has a whimsical sense about her personality. She isn’t afraid to tell it like it is, and I love that. Being raised by two hippie parents definitely has had a positive effect on her.

Bo Cavanaugh is everything a girl could ever want. He’s charming, passionate, and sensitive…not to

Different. Ten Days of Perfect? No, more like ten days of turmoil. Another bk where I didn’t exactly care for the h-November Blue/Ember but liked Bo-Spencer the H. For the sake of this review I’ll just call her Ember because she’s called by at least 3 different names during this story. Same goes with the H who also goes by 3 different names as you find out throughout the story. Like I said…different. Can’t say I really liked this bk all that much because our girl Ember is conflicted. She starts ...more

Okay- right when I finished this book I kinda freaked out, but now that I know there is a sequel I'm good... I was not okay with the ending lol. I really enjoyed Ember and Bo, the chemistry between them was great! It left me wanting more, I need to know what happens so book 2 can come out anytime :D

Ten Days of Perfect is a great story with a unique twist to the plot....I did not see that one coming! November 'Ember' Blue Harris, has a strong head on her shoulders, a great job, a pair of hippies for parents, and the support of her closest friends Monica and Josh. After an interesting event Ember witnesses she takes her troubles to her local pub and finds herself singing with the musical god Bo.

Thank the gods that’s over…

Like any other girl, I enjoy a good romance, the key being “good.” I don’t mind sappy, I don’t mind the corny. I don’t even mind the over the top declarations of love (sometimes) … but when all that’s found in one book- repeatedly mind you- well, you all should have been present to hear my absolute cheer of delight at having finally turned that last page! This book with its host of characters, each a little too closely connected to their emotional sides HAD ME CRINGING

WOW! I can't believe I put off starting this series for so long. I'm definitely going immediately into the next installment without waiting. Lots of angst and secretiveness -- I likey, I likey!! Characters that are less than honest with one another and a budding romance that feels like forever . . . but with plenty of room for doubt. Make sense - not really but that's exactly how it feels.

Good strong storyline with some musical influence that really makes the story zing and a set of hippie pare

Ten Days of Perfect is Andrea Randall's debut write. What a great way to enter the literary world. This book turned out to be so much more than I thought. I knew this was going to be romantic but there are some twists and unexpected events that made this a solid read for me.

I'm going to say if I can give more than 5 stars I would. I loved November, every single thing about her! I totally go for the love at first sight story, November "Ember" Harris and Bowan "Bo" Cavanaugh were so awesome together I gush, swoon, and have sweet dreams!! Besides the story filled with angst, there was quite a scandal and thrilling blackmail plot. I was so pleasantly surprised. You know when you read your type of book and whiz right through it.

I really enjoyed this heartfelt, musical and hot, hot, hot book! This story follows Ember as she meets and is instantly attracted to Bo Cavanaugh (oh man, he is hot!)...the story all takes place in a matter of 10 days, which is really cool concept that the author pulled off flawlessly.

I am a hopeless romantic---and I fell just as hard and just as quickly for Bo as Ember did. He is soulful, passionate and incredibly sexy. The sexual tension is so well written and Bo's sincerity oozes from the pag

When I Beta read this book, I knew this book would excite modern romance readers. I am very excited to see what readers will say now that Ten Days is available to the public.

Ember is a modern woman who doesn't need a man to make her life complete. How friggin' refreshing. She's bright as hell, talented, and supports herself. She is not "tied to the railroad tracks", nor is she wearing a chasity belt. Rock on.

Bo is a complicated, multi-faceted leading man. He doesn't fit into any mold-this was a

so....I just want to preface this by saying, I am ember. I make the wrong decisions for what I think are the right reasons and well....I love ember. I may love bo more though....or maybe Adrian LOL no matter what, this is a fabulous story about characters that are totally relatable in "real world" situations. it has the whole princess meets prince thing going on but it's totally not predictable or even all fairy tale. Andrea Randall has sucked me in. hook, line and sinker.

When I first started this book, I had a difficult time with it. It was nothing against the book or the writing, but I just couldn't get into the story or the characters. I later realized I was suffering from book hangover. You know what I mean. I started Ten Days of Perfect book immediately after finishing a book, and I couldn't wrap my head around the pages in front of me. This wasn't fair to the author or to the book, itself. So, I put Ten Days of Perfect down and didn't pick it up until the n ...more

Ten Days of Perfect is the first book in Andrea Randall's November Blue series.  We meet November "Ember" Blue, a twenty-six year old grant writer. Ember was raised by two hippy parents who traveled all over the country, never staying in one place for too long.  Though, Ember couldn't be any more different from her parents.  She doesn't want that sort of transient life for her and has done everything in her power to grow roots.  After graduating from Princeton, she and her friend, Monica, fou

I got this for free in the Kindle store a while ago, but I only just got to it.
First I want to say I really liked the way this was written. Every sentence is perfect and together they make up a little masterpiece. The chemistry between characters is great, Bo and Ember, Monica and Ember, Josh and can really feel it.

This book is also a pleaser: explosive love at first sight, awesome musical references, a little bit of drama, a little bit of suspense, a little bit of a love triangle,

There are few books which keep you hooked up from the chapter 1. There are few books which keep you hooked up till near end and there are few which hooks you up after first few chapters. And this book falls in third category. May be one reason for havin

I first read Ten Days of Perfect in it's very raw, very unedited form and it was amazing then. After it went through editing with the most wonderful editor I've ever known and subsequently published, I was floored at the finished product. This is an absolutely beautiful book by an equally beautiful author who has a major knack for writing.

I wanted to not finish this book, because it was too good to end. Yes, I know there is a sequel and I couldn't be more excited to see where Ember and Bo and A

WOW! I'm speechless.....what I thought I was getting into was a musical romance, but it was more than I could have imagined! Andrea Randall's words were beautifully written and haunting. The love turned into angst and then suspense. I found myself searching back to the first pages of the novel to read again the powerful introduction that became clear all at once near the end. The twists and turns had my mind racing and my heart fell during the last pages when the story ended. I am dying to get m ...more

Wow this book had my emotions in a twist. I was hooked pretty early on to the characters. Around 70% I had a sinking feeling and had to take a break. I could feel the forbidding future coming. It was like when you hear the music in the horror film. I didn't want to see the ending. I just wanted to cover my eyes and enjoy my happy bubble of a happy Ember and Bo. I wanted to kick Adrian's behind. In the end I'm quiet glad that he's in the book though. I am also extremely glad that my friend that r ...more

WOW...speechless! I think i need time to process this one! It was an emotional roller coaster and I loved every "page" of it! The cliffhanger at the end doesn't do anything to help me heavy heart right now either! I can't believe I got this book for free off Amazon! So so good! I need part 2 of this series so badly! March cannot come soon enough! Well done Andrea Randall! November and Bo's story took my breath away! <3

I enjoyed this book. I guess I didn't realize this was going to be a series or have a the ending kind of threw me. I wasn't expecting to be left hanging like that. I liked the "mystery" aspect that was introduced. I really felt the connection between Bo and Ember....there were countless times I got butterflies in my stomach just reading the scenes. And I also liked the musical aspect of the book. I'll definitely be reading the sequel.

I really loved to see the chemistry and pull of both Bo and Ember. It was refreshing to see how honest they both were about their feelings from the beginning, unlike other books that take forever for the characters to tell each other how they feel.

I was kind of pissed at Ember at the end. I mean I can understand why Bo did what he did. I don't think it was a deal breaker but I guess if it wasn't then we wouldn't have a second book.

What is with the cliffhanger endings lately? This was a cute little book with some amazing chemistry, well built characters, and some absolutely epic quotes!

I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the November Blue series because I am dying to know what will happen next for Ember and Bo!!!!
