Finally a book that recognises women over 25. Rebecca, at 40 years of age, decides to move 1000 miles to re-start her life.

She finds love and hot, hot, hot sex with Alexander. It's a story, and it is a good, readable, story. It was more believable simply because she is an 'older' woman.

For nearly 25 chapters the book was a solid 5 stars, unfortunately I wasn't as happy with the surprising twist just before the end.

Even so it kept me awake reading my kindle under the duvet till 3am.

Well this was rather delicious. Hot and sassy. This story didn't mince around at all.

Got right to the nitty gritty of 2 people enjoying a connection that read like an instant emotional and physical connection. It was refreshing to the point of leaving me with the thought of why the hell not.
Fantabulous saucy debut Jenna, a really refreshing read!

After moving into her apartment she makes friends with a girl who works at the local bookstore, who just happens to live in her apartment.

Definitely deserves 5 stars. Author Jenna Tyler tells a modern day story of a mom who wants the fantasy! She loves to read romances and refuses to believe that life can't be like them. She leaves all behind in search of a fresh start never expecting life to take an almost immediate turn into an adventure into that fantasy with a totally hottie name Drew. He's everything she's Dreamed about and more. This is one of the best books you will read this year! Loved her story telling and her characters ...more

Jenna Tyler has set the bar very high for her writing career. Something More is a great read and I couldn't put it down. It skips over the teasing buildup and jumps right into a whirlwind romance. I cannot wait for more novels from Jenna Tyler. ...more

A story of new beginning that rival all of our imaginations. I mean how many of us have day dreamed about picking up and starting over in a new city or town and seeing what fate has in store for us. Will it be for the better or the worst? It is the excitement that has us all day dreaming. Will we find the prince charming or book boyfriend of our dreams? I love that Jenna has taken that fantasy and given it room to grow even more in our minds.

"I know I would do anything for this man and it appears he would do anything for me. There's just something about him. Something mysterious. Something exciting. Something more."

I loved this debut novel by Jenna Tyler. Something More is a whirlwind romance that we all dream of. Mr. Chambers made my heart pitter patter from the beginning. I admired Rebecca's courage at moving across the country and starting life anew all on her own.

Rebecca is a simple, independent woman. She finds herself drawn t

Rebecca (Becca) Michaels decided she wanted something different, and finally being able to move on and be herself again, not just mom or the single, she decided to ,move from Florida all the way to Seattle. Yep pretty drastic. With her job lined up and her small apartment decorated, she had two weeks to relax and have some fun. What she didn’t know was she’d meet someone special and very well known in Seattle. Will she fall for this younger man? Will she live wildly and experience new…. t

This is a nice, romantic, steamy read! I like that Rebecca is a realistic character like your every day attractive female not some model unreal looking person and her age is more appropriate.
She loves to read her romance & longs to have her real life romance like she reads about and who doesn't?
It's written very well and does have a surprise toward the end lol however Im glad it ended the way it did.
I read this after an ugly cry read and this was just what I needed!

I would definitely refer people to read this. I loved it! From beginning to end it leaves you wanting more. The last chapter makes you go, huh?!?!?! WTF just happened! It was perfect. I so wish there was more, but alas, it is a stand alone so there isn't more. It has everything from romance, love, sex, and a tad bit of drama. Go one-click it if you want something good to read. ...more

This is a must read! I have to be honest and say that a book has to grab my attention fast in order to continue reading, and that is exactly what this did! it was an easy, erotic, fun, sexy read and I have to give it a 5 star. I sure hope there is more to come from this new author as she is on point!

I really liked the fact that the couple in this story were middle aged - gives you hope as someone that age. I found myself really engaged in the story but then felt cheated by the ending. The writing was at times stilted but was able to overcome that with the investment I had in the characters but it was for nothing. Disappointed sums up my experience with this book and I feel bad for feeling this way.

Every once in a while you find that book you’re really conflicted about. Something More is definitely one of those books. I am not sure how I feel after reading it and it wasn’t just the twist at the ending that makes me feel this way, but there is definitely a twist. Prepare yourself.

I have to start by saying that it was so refreshing to read a story about a 40 year old woman falling love.

Rebecca has decided to start afresh in a new city and a new job. Her daughter has just started college and after divorcing her husband 16 years ago, she is ready for something new. It only takes one day for that something new to happen and it comes in the form of Andrew Chambers. He is a very sexy, successful man with a very high public image. People are fascinated by him and women fawn all

ARC received from author in exchange for an honest review

What I really liked about this story is that Rebecca Michaels is a 40 year old divorced woman. It's not often that stories are written with a more mature female lead. She has moved to a new town after seeing her daughter off to college. She's ready to begin living her life now that her kid is out of the house. She's smart, confident and ready for some adventure in her life. Rebecca bumps into Andrew Chambers and sparks begin to fly immedia

It was hard not to like Rebecca in this book. She has such a fun personality. She definitely keeps Drew on his toes. I loved the witty banter between them. It kept things so fun and light. After reading a couple emotionally draining books lately, this was exactly what I needed.

I also enjoyed the fact that there wasn't any major drama between them. The attraction between the two was strong immediately. Drew would do anything for Rebecca and he proved that when events in her life took an uncertai

ehhh ..... ok what ?? totally unexpected ending I read through this book liking the storyline, at times I felt it was very fast paced and it kinda stuck out. why is it that even some of us who fall in love quickly in life don't like it when we read it in a book ? maybe we don't want the story to end , or all the goods to happen quick we want suspense, yet sometimes we don't wait till the end to judge I'm glad that the ending went the way it did because the fast paced weird world of beccas sudden ...more

I liked the book. It kept my attention and made me want to know what was going to happen next. I didn't like the way she was towards her ex-husband and thought she was too much of a smart mouth. But the book kept me interested. the author should possibly make a sequel. ...more

3.5 Not exactly what I was expecting but still good. So many scenes were hot and steamy but some were unrealistic. The ending was what knocked it down for me i was disappointed a bit and yet okay worth the conclusion.

this was an ok story...i liked the premise but the writing was a bit elementary and the dialog forced. i thought the twist at the end was a bit far fetched and silly.

I was really left speechless, and not in a good way. That was one of the worst books I've read in a long time. Ugh!

I was born and raised in South/Central Florida. Currently residing in Texas, I love spending time with my fur-baby, Roxy… and sometimes my kids (when they behave). I enjoyed writing poems as a teenager, but it was short-lived. I didn’t become an avid reader until… Twilight and became obsessed. My passion for reading led to stories and characters nagging at me.
