For those of you who don't understand that warning: GEGs=Strong language, gut-busting LOL moments caused by best friends who check their maturity at the door when they're together, and impromptu Kegal exercises.

The GEG ladies are back and this time, it’s time for CiCi O’Brien to shine and get her story heard. So if you are looking for a shy, timid heroine, I am sorry to disappoint you because CiCi is none of those things. She is loud, unfiltered, and loves her dirty talks. She has no problems telling you how things are and serving your balls in a platter if you cross with her. This loud and sassy GEG lady owns her sexuality and has no

Man, I love CiCi! She's always good for a laugh. She truly believes that everyone should live in the moment. You're never promised tomorrow. CiCi is also pretty much crazy and thats what we love about her. I mean... lets not forget what she told Lindsey AA stood for. CiCi has actually had it harder than anyone knows. I wanted to tell Kyle a few times to stop pushing her so hard, but I guess Ms Aryes knew exactly what she was writing about. Kyle was exactly what she needed. Even if he didn't real ...more

This is my second book from this author and it was just as Great as the first one was. I found myself laughing out loud at their antics and crying the next. I suggest you read the first book Under Contract to get the background on the story and the characters and what the jist of the story is. This book had it all for me, dual points of view, lust, romance,humor and drama and it was hard to put it down.

My Review:

**Review is slightly spoilerish for Book #1: Under Contract**

Bloody Hell, CiCi O’Brien may be one of the funniest female characters to come along in a long time! I loves me a woman who isn’t afraid to speak her mind, owns her make-a-sailor-blush mouth and, is fiercely loyal to those she calls her own. From the moment In the Mix opens, CiCi is on fire and she doesn’t stop until the moment th

"Life is made up of all these events that happen. I think of them as ingredients. Everything we go through: joy, sadness, what have you; they're all ingredients. They get thrown in the mix. That batter, with all those ingredients, makes up who we are and who we end up being."

Appearances can be deceiving, and that is the case with CiCi O'Brian.

She has the spirit of a brave fighter, a fantastic sense of humor and the ability to grab men by the balls (literally) and bring them to their knees. That is the CiCi she lets everyone sees.

On the inside, there's a broken woman, a woman who was taken advantaged of, used and who had to make a difficult decision, one that marked her deep and one that she regrets to this day.

She dates and enjoys male companionship but usually one

Wow! Just Wow! Jacquelyn, you did it again. You knocked me off my feet with another amazing book!

CiCi...she's such a hoot. Spunky, outspoken, not afraid to grab life by the balls or men for that matter. What people don't see is the scared, broken young woman she is on the inside. The side she desperately hides from everyone. For 15 long years she's hidden behind walls she built so no-one could learn her secret. No-one, not even her own family. Then she meets Kyle.

If you thought Under Contract was good, I can promise you In the Mix is even better.
In fact I think this is Jac’s best book yet. Cici is hysterical and she has certainly met her match in Kyle.

CiCi has built a wall around her so high that Kyle is going to need mountain climbing equipment to scale that sucker. She uses her innapropriate mouth to deflect any attention people throw her way, giving her an air of confidence I certainly wish I could pull off.

But dig a little deeper and she is covering

“As much as I want to be in a relationship with you, I need to think of protecting myself, too. There is an expiration date on how long you can string someone along and mine is just about met.”

This is the second book in the GEG series, you don’t have to read the first book to enjoy this book but I recommend it. This is the story about CiCi and Kyle. CiCi has a mouth on her and a witty sense of humor too. Having the best friends and family has been enough for CiCi for the last fifteen years even though she has been carrying around a horrible secret that no one knows.

Carissa Catherine, CiCi, says what's on her mind. Sometimes it's for shock value other times it really is just what's on her mind. CiCi was hurt, devastating hurt, the kind that doesn't let you open yourself to someone else, no matter how much you want to.

When Kyle first lays eyes on CiCi he is done for. This is the woman he wants and he will do everything he can think of to make her his. Kyle is Mitch's best friend. We

I fell head over heels in love with the GEG's from book 1, and couldn't wait to get my hands on this story! CiCi was one of the most original, hilarious character EVER. She's snarky, she's bold, and just fantastic.
She is in NO way looking for love or a relationship - she's care-free and not looking to be tied down to anyone. Unfortunately, Kyle has caught her eye...and she is trying to ignore the pull -but he is a very persua

This is the second in the series, and I do think that you need to read book 1 to actually appreciate the story fully.

I don't think I enjoyed this quite as much as the first in some ways and yet in others it was even better. I thought Lindsey and Winnie were a great addition to the cast. I found CiCi's outrageous manner a bit grating at times, but it was the perfect foil for Kyle. Knowing more about his family made his natu

Romantic comedy doesn't get much better than this. The second book in Jacquelyn Ayres GEG series had all the right ingredients for me. It is dual point of view, lots of dialogue, and plenty of interesting and funny secondary characters. The author also gives us more of Mitch and Charley from the first book in the series, and hints of what is to come with the relationships of the other three GEGs.

In the Mix was laugh out loud

Oh, I loved this one a lot! It's freaking hilarious, swoon-worthy romantic and a little dramatic (in a good way). The story will send you to hysterics and then to ugly crying tears in a matter of minutes. A really good read. So, if you love foul-mouthed, blunt and crazy girls who don't hold their horses for snarky comments and witty comebacks, this book is perfect for you. Just make sure you read the first book, so you'll get the best experience.

This installment of the "Green Eyed Girls" seemed a little forced, a lot over the top and didn't really come together until 85% of the book was through. The last 15% of the book was so good, I just didn't connect with the couple until the book was almost over. I was really looking forward to this book, I'm not sure if I will continue with this series.

Jacquelyn Ayres knows how to win my heart over times ten when she writes a book.

How’s that you ask? Well with gut busting, heart melting, and laugh out loud humor that could make even the toughest person crack a smile. My cheeks hurt from how much I smiled and cracked up reading In The Mix, and the first book in her GEG Series, Under Contract.

But it wasn’t just the humor that won me over repeatedly in this book, it was so much more.

It was the characters she created that never failed to bring on

The story In The Mix (Standalone) (The GEG Series Book 2) by Jacquelyn Ayres is a romantic comedy. I loved the second book in the GEG series just as much as the first. I couldn’t help but smile and laugh through most to the book. There are also some moments that are touching as well. I loved the characters of CiCi and Kyle.

In the Mix (Standalone) (The GEG Series Book 2) by Jacquelyn Ayres is the second book in her The GEG series. This story can be read as a standalone but I highly suggest that you read the first book too as it is just as enjoyable. Plus this author does one of the things I love most about series. She brings back some of the characters from the previous books. I want to know what happens to the characters after I close a book.

Even though I'm only on the second book in the series, this is my favorite so far, because I LOVE Cici. She is strong, feisty, and says ALL the things we want to say but shouldn't. She has no filter and is hysterical. She's also the one with the big heart who has loved the wrong man, so now her wall is sky high. But Kyle is the man to break it down while building her up, brick by brick.

Cici & Kyle… A match made in heaven.. or not!!

Kyle is a gorgeous man who is smart, funny and a successful business man. He has the world at his feet. All he wants is Cici. He has wanted her (not just in his bed) to be in his life from the moment he laid eyes on her and grabbed him by the balls.. No really, she literally did!

Cici is complicated. She has allowed a traumatic event from her past dictate her life for 15 years. No one knows what happened and if she has her way no one

In the Mix is the second installment of The GEG series by Jacquelyn Ayres and let me just say that I LOVED IT! This book made me laugh with tears of joy as well as touched my heart.
