This was a sweet read. Tim, a musician from England, has swapped places with someone in New York to do some studio work for a band here. Pretty much as soon as he got off the plane, that job fell apart, and Tim has gone to a donut shop nearby his borrowed apartment. There, he meets Jenna, who he thinks is really pretty. He leaves to get some sleep, but comes back around closing time. While he's sitting there, a drunk guy comes in and starts making lewd comments to Jenna (who is there by herself ...more

5 Stars

Long-Distance Lovers is a quick, sizzling, sexy read. I absolutely loved this book.

Jenna and Tim are ideal together. Both of them bring a lot of passion and variety to the story. I love it when I get to read a book and completely adore both the hero and the heroine. This book nailed that for me. Jenna is sweet, caring and independent. Tim is sensitive, affectionate and completely devoted to those he cares for. When these two characters intertwine

Woo-Hoo!!! I am so happy that I won Long-Distance Lovers because I had never heard of the book or the authors (Karen Booth and Karen Stivali) and I would have missed out on an AWESOME read!!!! I will definitely be checking out more from both authors.

I LOVED Long-Distance Lovers!! The story pulled me in right from the start and entertained me the entire time. It had everything that I look for in my favorite books. I loved the easy, fun and romantic relationship between Tim and Jenna. Tim

I found this book while going through the promotional material from the Lori Foster Event. There was a bookmark in the bag with this book cover on it. The title peeked my interst, so I went to Amazon to check it out.

Right away I liked Tim and Jenna. The set up was nice and believable. I did think she fell into the relationship rather quickly considering she was supposed to have a 'no musicians' policy, but the storyline was still enjoyable and flowed well.

Long-Distance Lovers was a short but spicy contemporary romance that engaged me from the beginning with an in depth storyline and wonderful and caring characters – except for Rachel. Tim and Jenna were two lost souls that gravitated to each other from the start. Jenna’s horrible upbringing and family life formed her just as Tim’s close-knit family and lifelong friends made him the person he i

Long-Distance Lovers was such a delightful read. Authors Booth & Stivali have penned a charming contemporary romance with this one. I was captivated by the story very early on. Filled with sweet, romantic, sexy, fun, & heartbreaking moments, this story was impossible to put down. The characters, Tim & Jenna, were both realistic, well-developed & likeable.

The plot & storyline were nicely crafted & delivered. I loved the progression & development of Tim & Jenna's r

I was eagerly looking forward to the release of Long Distance Lovers after thoroughly enjoying one of the authors previous books, Always You, and it certainly didn't disappoint in style or plot. The characters, Tim and Jenna, are rich and vibrant, the story more than just sex - although there was plenty, thank you very much - and the romance and conflict tugged my heart strings in many different directions. I highly recommend this novel if you want to travel with a couple as they fall in lust an

I won this book on good read. It was an excellent book and I was upset when I had to put it down to study for my finals. I want a Tim for myself. You will fall in love with the characters. I am defiantly buying more books by these authors. The only issue I had was it was not a longer book. But on the other had it was written well and the love and emotions was captures perfectly. I have to say thank you so much for the book. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND PICKING UP THIS BOOK!

I loved this book. Tim and Jenna are both sweet and likable characters. The sex was hot and the conflict realistic. The story is delivered at a comfortable pace, not too slow so that you lose interest but just fast enough to keep it an easy weekend read. I've read everything by Karen Stivali and she never disappoints. Not so patiently waiting for her next book Leave The Lights On.
This is a fast paced read that pulls you in and keeps you engaged until the very last page. I highly recommend this. You will get a remarkable tale packed with humor, romance and a scorching loveable couple.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a nice light read. The authors did a nice job in taking you from beginning to end with the story of Jenna & Tim. It was a love story through and through and didn't leave you disappointed.

Nice quick read. Predictable and heart warming. I do love how Karen Stivali enjoys including hot Englishman in her stories. And why not I say!

Loved it! This made me want a sexy Englishman in one hand, and a pile of chocolate in the other. It doesn't get much better than that.
