Sasha and TJ are no strangers to enjoying sex with no strings attached, so when they decide to act on their mutual attraction, there should be no reason why they can’t apply that same philosophy to each other.

Money has never been an issue for Sasha, which made proving herself as a real estate dynamo a personal challenge she was determined to conquer. Raised in a gilded wor

Finally TJ and Sasha’s story.We were introduced to these characters in 8 Weeks, the first book in the “Time for Love” series. And there they seemed like really fun and dynamic characters, so I was looking forward to reading their story.


The story begins with TJ getting fired and as a result of that he has also lost his home. He doesn’t want to bother his friends with his problems though, they are just getting their lives back on track.. No, he will figure things out himself. TJ forgets that his f

This is the second book in the series and it focuses on T.J and Sasha, who are both part of the group of friends we met in the previous book. 8 WEEKS.
I really liked T.J and Sasha , they were well written characters and I was surprised at their depth, especially T.J. These two have a very different approach to relationships , or non relationships than their friends so when they each discover they have feelings for each other it is a shock for both of them. They are both pass

I really enjoyed this second book in Bethany's series. I loved seeing how Cal and Shelly were doing and finding out more about the rest of the group. TJ had a really tough childhood, and is intent on finding his own way and doing things for himself. Sasha has always had more than enough money, it's the emotional support she never got from her family. When Sasha finds out that TJ needs a place to stay she doesn't even think twice and announces that he's going to stay with her. TJ is gr

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

21 Days is the second book in Bethany Lopez's Time For Love Series. After reading Cal and Shelly's story, I couldn't wait to get to know TJ and Sasha better! I really enjoyed their story, and I love this group of characters. These are easily read as standalones, but I really recommend starting at the beginning because they are short and are worth the read.

When TJ loses his job and apartment, he has no idea what he is going to do. When his best

I received a complimentary e-copy of 21 Days in exchange for an honest review.

TJ and Sasha have been a part of the same circle of friends since high school. They tease each other, they even innocently flirt with each other, but neither one of them has ever made a move to be anything beyond platonic friends.

TJ finds his life changing unexpectedly. The shop that he works out is being closed and since the apartment he lives in comes with the job, he has no where to go. Living paycheck to paycheck,

After reading 8 Weeks, I have been dying to read 21 days!! T.J. and Sasha’s story, I knew was going to be awesome. Bethany Lopez did not disappoint!!

The story picks up with the garage that T.J. works closing down permanently . In a flash T.J. loses his job and place to live. Being very independent, T.J. does not want to ask for help from anyone. When his friends all offer for him to stay with them, he feels awkward. Then Sasha just walks by and tells everyone that T.J. will be living with him,

This friends to lovers romance is the story of TJ and Sasha. When TJ loses his job and as a result his apartment, Sasha steps in, offering her long time friend a room to stay in while he sorts out his life for an agreed upon 21 days. A friends with benefits arrangement seems ideal - but what happens when their time together is up?

I quite enjoyed this story. There is a core group of friends all in their mid-twenties and it seems only natural that romances will develop for some of the characters,

4 out of 5 Stars for Part 2 of Time To Love

*** ARC granted in exchange for an honest review ***

TJ lost his job and also his apartment, and his friend Sasha kindly offers him to stay at her place until he manages to get back onto his feet.

There's always been this special connection and sexual tension between TJ and Sasha but the two have never acted on it - now however, living under the same roof gets more and more interesting and they decide to give the friends-with-benefits thing a try.

Dani’s Review:4.5 Kisses.
Where to start with 21 days..21 Days is one of those books where it’s hard to put down once you pick it up.
Sasha is what seemed to me an over achiever when it came to her job and her lifestyle. That was until I got to know her throughout the book.

TJ is a guy that would be in my vision, should I be out looking for someone. My better half reminds me a lot of TJ’s character and for that alone, TJ gets the stamp of approval in my book.

TJ just found out he lost his job and his apartment! With little to no money he isn't sure what he's going to do. He hates feeling like he can't stand on his own two feet. So when Sasha offers for him to stay at her place he is reluctant to take it, but makes her a deal. He will only be there for 21 days before he has his own place. What the pair didn't count on was how much their attraction would grow while living together!

21 days was clearly not long enough for Sasha and TJ. I really enjoyed this! I agree that good friends make the best loves, so it was easy for me to cheer this couple on. I will go back to readbook #1 and look forward to book #3 now. I thought the way these two long-time friends fell for each other was cute. The word 'compromise' was a wonderful thing for the two of them. ...more
Audible review:

For the last few years I have jumped around reading the Time for Love series by Bethany Lopez, so I am excited to be reading/listening to the series in order. 21 Days is the second book in the series and tells the story of Sasha and TJ, whom we met in 8 Weeks. Though each book can be read as a standalone, as they are each about different couples within a group of friends, I am enjoying going through them in order.

When we first met Sasha and TJ, we learn there is undeniable chemi

TJ -
"I'd never been with a woman like Sasha before. Someone whose sexual appetite was as vast and frequent as mine. Someone who accepted me for who I was, not who they wanted me to be. It was a crazy kind of cool that this woman who'd been an important part of my life for eight years was rocking my world on every level." "We were a lot alike. Although our upbringings couldn't have been more different, neither of us had family that we claimed, at least none

Friends with benefits. Does it ever work? No, seriously, I want to know because I've never tried it. It's certainly fodder for movies, books and any other form of entertainment you can think of, so there must be people out there doing it - all I want to know is if it's successful. I do know that said entertainment is entertaining for me. I can't help it. Friends becoming lovers becoming exes the kind of story that grabs my attention and that's why I wanted to read 21 D ...more

(rating: 4.5) When I begin reading any novel by Bethany Lopez I know three things: I'll find characters to care about, the love story will touch me, and I will be entertained. After reading and enjoying her Friends & Lovers series and Indelible, Ms. Lopez is a go-to author for me. The second book in her Time For Love series, 21 Days exceeded my expectations.

Sasha is like many women I knew growing up in New York City. She comes from money, has drive, a good job and has a killer fashion sense. She

We first met Sasha and TJ in 8 weeks, Cal and Shelly's story, and I was so happy to catch up with everyone again in 21 Days.

Sasha and TJ have been friends since high school, both coming from less than perfect family situations, both guarding their hearts by not committing to long term relationships. Over the years they have flirted with each other, sexual tension simmering below the surface, but never taken that step to intimacy for fear of getting hurt and damaging their close friendship. When

When I signed on for the review tour of 21 Days I somehow completely missed it was book two in a series. When I opened up the ARC and saw that, I panicked because I had not read book one. I got on Amazon and 8 Weeks was on sale so I nabbed it and got started on it. I am NOT someone who believes in standalone series. I HAVE to read in order.

After reading 8 Weeks though, I was nervous going into 21 Days. I had issues with some of the story points and main female character. But I am pleasantly hap

I love Bethany Lopez’s stories. Love them. from the first one I read she has had me captivated. Book one in this series, 8 weeks, had me rethinking my beliefs about what would I do?? In 21 Days the drama is smaller, but it remains, what happens if your’e entire life you have felt not like your’e not enough, yet are given the opportunity to have more and be more? To grow into more- not just friendship, not just sex- but the possibility; to have a home and be with the one that gets you.

Is it hot in here or is it just me? Wow! I loved Sasha in 8 Weeks! She was admittedly one of my favorite characters. I liked that we really get to know alot about her and T.J.

I was happy to find that the series is not about two people but an entire group of lifelong friends with a family bond. It just has a get lost in me quality about it. Where 8 Weeks left me swooning and hopeful that love had a chance to outweigh the bad things in life this read left me breathless.

Sasha grew up with money and parents that didn't care. She's afriad to have any kind of relationship with just one guy because she saw what her parents went through. She doesn't want that.

TJ grew up with little money and parents that didn't care. He doesn't want a relationship with Sasha because he doesn't want to be a kept man. He wants to be able to provide for himself and not be the charity case.

TJ and Sasha, both whom we met in 8 weeks, had sad childhoods. Both basically raised themselves without love and support from their families. The only difference was TJ's parents were drunks and abusive and Sasha's parents were rich and elusive and never around.

TJ ended up living with his grandparents the last few years of their lives. He'd worked hard to get to the point in life where he had a stable job and home. Until the owner decided he was selling his shop and a

I have loved all of Bethany’s NA books that I have read, so I am always super excited when she has a new one coming out!
The Story:
This story follows the same characters as 8 Weeks, except this focuses on TJ and Sasha. Although we met both characters in 8 Weeks, we didn’t really get to KNOW them other then the superficial stuff. 21 Days fixes that for us and we get to know them and love them SO much!

Wow I loved this story, I had goosebumps reading this story between TJ and Sasha. Wow I love Bethany's style of writing, it's so hard to put her books done, I just wanted to find out what happened next.

I loved their happy ending... such a beautiful love story, between two best friends of 8 years, who just picked on each other and Sasha did her best friend a favour, when he lost his rental property and his job, as the owner sold the properties. Sasha took him in and TJ didn't want to rely on anyo

After reading Cal and Shelly's story in 8 Weeks, I was anxious to get to know TJ and Sasha in 21 Days. Both quickly became my favorite characters from this group. They're snarky and flirty and so obviously attracted to each other, their fire burned the pages. When they made their arrangement, I really hoped it would to turn into more. But underneath the snark and flirtation were two people coming from very different, but equally damaging homes. These two are the most broken of the group and mayb ...more
