4 Goodbye Common Sense Stars



My grandfather used to say "Common Sense ain't so common". No Kidding. I almost stopped reading the book several times. Not because the writing was bad...if fact, the writing was funny, quirky and fast paced. Its not that I wasn't not invested in the characters. I was so invested that I wanted to bitch slap several of them multiple times. The issue....No one in this book showed an ounce of common sense. Except maybe....well...um....nope....no one. Those boys jumping u

Ms. Ayres created a smorgasbord of delicious characters. Crazy, fast paced and fabulous.

The main character is hysterically funny and I adopted an entire new playlist of music in the process.

I loved and hated every character in this book. I laughed and cried for all of them as well. When an author can elicit that much emotion from a reader; that's real talent. Goodbye Caution is a wonderful read, the characters are well defined, I was in their heads from the beginning. Looking forward to the nex

*ARC received for an honest review*

I could instantly see myself becoming friends with Becca from Goodbye Caution. She's a hardworking, loving mother, a good employer and loyal friend. I'm going to tell you up front I'm Team Grayson. Woah momma is is HOT. I don't like giving away too much of the storyline in my reviews - but if you like an emotional, heartfelt novel, this book is for you. Expect humor, drama, love and lust.

Oh, one more thing. I absolutely love books that include emails/text messa

This book has more twists and turns then going up a mountain! You can't help but love Grayson AND Ray. I really hope that Becca comes to a conclusion soon because Grayson is a force not to be reckoned with! I am excited for the rest of the series.

I made the mistake of picking this book up late at night planning on simply reading a few chapters to get a feel for it before bed. *insert hysterical laugh here* 5 a.m. rolls around and i am reading the last words of the book. My eyes felt like someone had put sand in them. It was a struggle to focus on the words but I was hooked and could not for the life of me put the book down. After a short nap, I got up, grabbed a coffee and dove straight into the second book of the series. So, you might a ...more

I will be honest with you, this book is like finding a treasure in the middle of a garage sale. When I first started reading it, I was expecting a funny love story, what I got was intense feelings and two new characters that I adore. While there are a lot of references regarding the Fifty Shades series in the book and to be honest, I found myself having the same feelings for this book as I did Fifty Shades, don't be tricked into thinking this is an attempt to be a knock off of that series.

****UPDATE*** at first I gave this book a 4.5 stars.
I have changed that.. This book now gets 5 stars.
Only thing I want to say is read both books before you review
the first. Review them as a series and not just as one book at a time.
And keep an open mind. This Series will change your life if you let it.

This book had me captivated from start to finish!
I don't think I have ever had such conflicting emotions when reading a book like I did with this one!!!
When you read this book you don't just meet Becca & Grayson & the rest of the characters you also get to meet the Sybecca's!! They will have you laughing without warning & usually at very serious points in the book!!
Becca has lots of quirks that make you love her right from the beginning, these are what help her cope with everything

GOODBYE CAUTION by Jacqueline Ayres
Book one in series
5 out of 5
It's not often that you find a diamond in the rough. Jacqueline's writing is polished and sparkles with a great story line and characters your heart will desire. GOODBYE CAUTION is a breath of fresh air. Its main character Becca, is a strong, smart, independent, single parent who runs her own successful B&B business. Add to that, her funny inner thoughts and her 'conscious multi Sybille,( or as she cleverly calls them Sybecca)' p

I absolutely loved this book, but this is a love it
or hate it kind of book. It is love at first sight and the
relationship moves faster than most people are used to. When love is
this fresh and intense, it tends to cause extreme reactions to the
simplest of actions. Just imagine when these actions are not all that
simple. I was a little turned off by the love triangle that developed
especially when the love between the main characters was so passionate.
I believe the love triangle will be impo

Goodbye Caution is a heartfelt romantic novel that takes the reader on one hell of an emotional roller coaster ride. Author Jacquelyn Ayres weaves a thoroughly entertaining tale that is full of romance, drama, intrigue, sexy lust, and humor. It is a riveting tale that easily draws the reader into Becca Campbell's story.

Becca Campbell is a war widow (her husband was abusive) who is raising a ten year old daughter and running a B&B in New England. She meets Grayson James, who is from England,

It was refreshing and a pleasant surprise to read a story about characters who were adults and therefore aware of what they wanted (in a sense, as if the characters always knew exactly what they wanted there probably wouldn’t be much of a story to be told) and who weren’t so naive in their personalities.
Becca was a wonderful character, she was quirky, strong, funny and a lovely and caring mother. She definitely annoyed me at times with the decisions she made and her thought process but the fact

WOW! It's been a whole day since I finished this book and am still shocked by it all. Be prepared to be elated, sad, ticked off, find it sexy, and then hurting again while reading.

Becca owns her own business. She has employees and a wonderful woman to help her basically is her so called mother in a sense. She also has a daughter and a very hurtful past. Her employee has her nephew coming into town and Becca is okay with that until she meets him. He's delicious and it excites and deters her.

Goodbye Caution was a very enjoyable book. The story centers around the main character Becca Campbell who is a war widow (her spouse was not such a great guy) who is trying to make a good foundation of life for her daughter running a business.

Enter Greyson James nephew of one of Becca's employees ,Hazel who comes to vist his aunt. The thing about Greyson is he is from England. A very British type of guy.....well a very hot British guy I should say. At first sight Greyson's gets Becca's panties a

Meet Becca. A business woman, a single mother but most of all an independent lady, with a plan, a life and a daughter she dotes on.

Unbeknown to her she's also the light in a lot of men's eyes...BANG...in walk the eyes of Grayson. Now prepare yourself because you're in for one hell of a ride. Whirlwind romance doesn't even touch the sides. Cram years worth of ups and downs and things you can only begin to imagine into a few weeks and you'll be on the right tracks.

Becca and Grayson fall in love,

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoy a book where all of the characters even the supporting cast are written so you can relate to them and see yourself being friends with them . Goodbye Caution is one of those books. It is also a nice change that the main character is a widow and a mom instead of a virgin or naive and in college. Not mention that Grayson is so stinking hot

Another thing I enjoy in a book is when the characters share emails or texts back and forth. I

Ok - for a start this book is as funny as it is sexy!!

Becca has her life back on track after the death of her abusive husband, she runs a niche business, works hard and really doesn't have the time or inclination to involve a man in it.

Enter Grayson! He literally explodes into her life and turns it upside down, he's demanding, controlling and sexy AS!!

An author to look out for in the future.

Jacquelyn Ayres' voice is truly unique and her words just flow off the page in a highly amusing and individual style. But don't let this mislead you into thinking this book is flimsy chic lit. Becca has real issues that need resolving and she is a gutsy woman with all the strengths and definitely the flaws, that make us human. You can't help but get right inside all the characters' heads, and it's a roller-coaster of a place to be! All I can say is, hop on

I absolutely LOVED this book! Jacquelyn Ayres successfully tapped into every possible emotion I have. The book was hysterical as it referred to many books, movies, and music that I love as well. Becca cracked me up with her "praying". Grayson killed me with his adorable morse-code blinking eyes, sexy British accent, and "selfish" ways. Ray had me on a roller coaster ride from the get go and boy could he get my hormones a flyin'! The supporting characters like Morgan, Hazel, and others kept this ...more

A LOVE triangle for the ages....

Becca had a hard time with trust and relationships after a marriage gone wrong to a war hero who is no longer living. She was a driven mother and business owner that was swept off her feet by Grayson but he had flaws in which brought up her walls and had her leaning on a best friend who had hidden feelings. Ray feelings didn't stay hidden for long, oh NO...

To say this was a journey would be outting it lightly. To say you will be like "WTH are you thinking Becca" o

Jacquelyn Ayres' "Lost & Found" series is nothing short of amazing! It's so erotic and steamy. I couldn't put it down...I had to know how it would end! I was up until 4:30am finishing #2! I laughed, I cried, I read one-handed...everything masterfully rolled into one incredible series. When you start into #1, you think things are moving a little fast and are a little jumbled, but wait for it, that's part of the plot!

Unfortunately this one wasn't for me! I really wanted to like it. It sounded so good but everything in this book was like warped speed. Normally if you can sell me on the connection between the main couple I can buy into instant-a-love but unfortunately I wasn't sold on this at all. This was warped instant-a-love! I really hate not feeling a book and giving a low rating, but yea this was a not for me.
