I read this book and fall in love with Justin and Lauren. They were sweet and giving to one another. I only wished it was lobger, and we could of gotten the details of two very important events.I have not found a book yet that I've not loved by Scarlet. I can't wait to read Brett's book. Definitely a must read if you love reading about romance.

This is the first in the soul mates series. I love every book in this series but there is a soft place for these characters. I like being able to get both sides of the story since it is not writting from one point of view.Read this book and you will want to read the rest

This is the first book that I have read by Scarlet Wolfe and I was definitely not disappointed. Lauren was a strong girl, but was being pulled in two different directions and she just couldn't stand it anymore. Justin was so swoon worthy!! He was tired of being pressured about his future, and on one fateful night they meet. Sparks fly and they start a relationship. You would think that their relationship would be easy but it's not. There are secrets between them and in the end, can their love fo ...more

Another Amazon Freebie! This one was better than I expected and without reading either the synopsis or any reviews I figured from the cover alone that I was going to be reading a story laced with tons of sex and very little plot. However, I was wrong!

Lauren and Justin meet on a stretch of road when she decides to be defiant and pick up a hitchhiker... Things slowly progress from there and of course, there is a happy ending!!! it was a great read, though I was left with questions, as there wasn'

Emotional rollercoaster

Lauren and Justin.... what a great love story. I got this book as part of a free giveaway from author Scarlet Wolfe. I was unable to put it down and was.completely taken with the story and characters. I highly recommend this book because it is not only a wonderful story of blooming love but it is also an easy and quick read. Wonderfully well written. Thank you Scarlet Wolfe.

A Week for Love to Bloom (Soul Mates 101 #1) 2nd Edition by Scarlet Wolfe

I received a complimentary ARC in exchange for an honest review.

At the young age of 21 Lauren has been given a hefty responsibility. After her Father left her Mother for a younger woman, Lauren is forced to run the family gardening business that her Grandparents worked so hard to build. This leaves Lauren little time for a social life and no time for college.

Justin refused to join in the family law business and moved away f

Home from working out of state, Justin is temporarily staying in town before returning to school.

Lauren is hard at work at her parent’s nursery and Justin has returned to town to prepare to leave for college. Neither expected to find love after Lauren picks Justin up from hitchhiking one night. The sparks immediately begin to fly. Lauren’s parents are divorcing and there’s something not quite right going on at the nursery. Justin is pressured by his family to continue in the shoes o ...more

I have read a few of Scarlet's books and ALL of them have been wonderful!

This book was Funny, snarky, and just awesome!

This is very different from the first few book of hers that I read

But its just as good I love that she can write different styles of books

This is a great book and I think its a MUST READ!

I give it a 5 out of 5!!!

Scarlet Wolfe does it again! This is the second book of hers I've read and I loved it just as much as TRUST GAME but for completely different reasons! Lauren & Justin's love was so pure and inspiring. I want a love like there's someday!!!

This book is just what I needed right now. After reading a few darker, mind effing books, A Week for Love to Bloom was a refreshing romance.

Justin and Lauren meet as a coincidence one night, then again and again. Lauren is a busy girl, running her family's garden and nursery business, leaving her little personal time. Justin is heading home from California. He quit his job on an oil rig and needs to figure out what the next step for him is. His family already knows what they want for him, but it
On the plus side, I thought to myself "I'll just read a chapter or two of this book before I go to bed", and didn't put it down until 1:30, after completing it. I sucked it right in, page after page, pushing to see how the characters would react next. And I don't only mean Lauren and Justin. I was more curious to read about Brett, Emily and even Beth, who reaffirmed my belief that people do change, and not always for the worse.

On the other hand, not once did I have to go back and re-read what wa

I won this book via Goodreads giveaways. The rating is actually 2.5, but I rounded it up to 3 stars.

I really liked the premise of this book. The idea of the couple being drawn to each other from the very beginning as if with magnetism was a fun idea, and the financial issues that come up later were dramatic and riveting.

However, the execution was not what I was hoping for. The book was about 90% dialog, which made for many stilted and awkwardly formal conversations between characters as the wr

**Copy received from author in exchange for an honest review**

I really enjoyed this book. It was quite amusing at times especially the fact that Justin and Lauren fall in love after one week. Sometimes i find it hard to believe in love at first sight but the way it was written, made in so beautiful and like they were soul mates.

Justin and Lauren find an attraction between them from the moment that Lauren thinks Justin is a hitch-hiker and stops and picks him up. B

I have read a few books by Scarlet Wolfe and hate to say that this was my least favorite. Sorry!!

I found that there was too much dialogue between Justin and Lauren. This lead to awkward conversations.. I don't do well with that. There wasn't much description as to what the heck was going on in their heads. I wanted.. no needed more feeling. I loved the premise of the story. Falling madly in love with each other.. swoon, but the craziness of Lauren at times.. too much to handle. I felt confused a
Pattie (Hectic Housewife)
A more wholesome & Sweet book- . In the beginning, it sounded like they were older than they were.
I found myself wondering why she would tease him n want to shower with him, then get him all hot n bothered & then HE would apologize to her.... Huh? Why? Was it just me who thought : where are your balls?!
Overall it was a sweet debut book.

A little too much apologizing for me, but I read the whole thing. I give it three⭐⭐⭐ Stars.

A little corny for me....

But cute! Some of the dialogue sounded a bit stilted and fake, and if Lauren said "i can't be with him/you" one more time.....but the overall storyline was enjoyable. The author did a nice job.
If you grew up in a small town and you well know the way the grapevine works, I think you'll appreciate the story in this debut novel by author Scarlet Wolfe. Written with a great deal of passion, I see a bright future ahead of this new romance author.
