*sigh* I love books like this. Short, sweet, and just what every romantic wishes for.

Amanda is all about work work work, but when Jake, her childhood crush, shows up what she thought she wanted quickly changes. Amanda has been in love with Jake since they were kids and has never forgotten their kiss underneath the trees after their homecoming dance. Problem is Jake took off and ran after their kiss and now that he is back begging to get into her bed she isn't so sure she can be a one night stand

When I read this I was looking for something light and this totally fit the bill. It was a friends to lovers story which is one of my favorite themes.

Amanda and Jake were best friends then one day the line was crossed.

After this they went there separate ways. Jake became a player where Amanda became focused on her career instead of love but fate had different plans. Then once again Jake and Amanda meet up but can they become more.

Because they had history together being together their re

I thought this book was great. Humorous in places, sweet in others. And some great heat too! A quick, fun read and a really cute couple.

Amanda thinks there is nothing more important than her big shot in the fashion industry and she is much too busy to be going out for her friend's birthday party. However, it is a long standing tradition and so she can't disappoint them. She never expected to run into her long-time crush, Jake, who used to live next door to her. To her surprise, her feelings have

First love can be so brutal, especially when it’s not reciprocated. Amanda and Jake grew up together and when they got older and he kissed her, then left, it broke her teenage heart. Now seven years later, it seems like Jake will be getting some of his own medicine. Amanda’s not ready to commit. She has entirely too much going on.

Jake finally finds the woman who is the ONE, only to find out he’s known her all his life. It’s his little squirt. When he’s ready to try a relationship, she’s wary. S

Oh, Jake!

I feel like I’ve been waiting forever to read this book. It’s been on my goodreads TBR for months. I read the prequel, Boy Next Door, on Smashwords two weeks ago. And finally, FINALLY I get to meet grown-up Mandy and Jake.

And it was totally worth the wait.

Melinda Dozier has crafted two fabulous characters -- one a feisty, independent woman who takes charge of her life and follows her dreams. The other a sexy, successful attorney whose heartbreaking past leaves him with a major fear of c

I was lucky to get a sneak preview of this contemporary romance. :) Fans of 'friends to lovers' stories will enjoy this sweet and sexy romance. Jake is appropriately hot and Amanda is the kind of woman you'd like to meet for cocktails. You'll enjoy watching them both struggle with their fear of commitment and their mutual attraction...especially when they visit their families for Christmas. That was my favorite part. Amanda's niece had me chuckling out loud. Definitely a good choice to bring to ...more

Rating: 5 stars

The title of this book is absolutely spot-on perfect!! I adored reading Amanda (Mandy) and Jake's story. Their history of growing up together made the tension throughout the story electrifying as they explored new ventures. Mandy's priorities and fears got a bit annoying at times, yet I also understood her perspective. I found myself rooting for the score in this book and I'm left craving more of Mandy and Jake's story.

Wow! This was a fabulous book and I am so glad that I got to know Mandy and Jake. I understand the pain of not wanting to be hurt in a relationship. Mandy and Jake both had their doubts but I liked that Jake realized how much her cared and wanted to be with her, even if it was out of his realm of experience.
I can’t help but think there was more to the Dominic relationship and that he hurt Mandy in more ways than one. I loved this story and can’t wait to read more from this great author

Time Changes Everything by Melinda Dozier Time Changes Everything by Melinda Dozier Was an entertaining book and by far and away the best part about it was the end. I LMAO! The characters were pretty well-developed and the storyline was entertaining, but I was having a difficult time with the dialogue. I kept rolling my eyes and getting irritated at what I felt were unreasonable responses to certain things. The prequel to this, The Boy Next Door had the same problem. It's why, though I liked both stories, and only gave them 3 stars ...more

Phew phew! Bestfriends turning into lovers really is one of my favorite scenarios. The relationship Amanda and Jake had and has started confusing and complicated at first but the tension is really there. It will get the readers thinking when it is really known that you are in love. When everyone around you is sure that you are, then what would stop you?

Amanda and Jake both had their issues and being with them figuring it out by reading this book has been interesting. One is afraid to co
