“Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world…”

Oh my, 1208 was a tasty novella, that packed a little punch. From the very start we are transported into their story and experience their one night full of passion and tenderness. Who would have ever guessed that one perfect night would haunt them for months to come; but no promises were made, no information exchanged, just one blissful night and a memory to last a lifetime... But fate had other plans, planting seeds and

I felt I was in love with this book within the first chapter by mid book that one was in my favorite by the end I was sure I loved this one so much.
I felt contentment and peace + love and smile after reading this one.
It was more than a sexscapade between two people in a hotel bar/lounge meeting in a room.
It was a girl with more story behind doing something unbelievable. it was so well written and explained. Then came to him! much more in there.
.... hummm.... it was fate. yep a love story but a

5 delightful stars!

Some authors can spin magic into their short stories. And Sophia Renny did exactly that. Intriguing and riveting right from the beginning, it left me feeling contented on this glorious, rainy Boxing Day. The perfect book to curl up to on this dreary day.

Sweet yet alluring, Room 1208 tells a story of two individuals who discovered something they didn't realise were missing in their lives. Clouded by a trying past, 'Joan' and 'Don' took the first step into betterment the moment

I never would have guessed that there are so many 30 year old virgins out there, trying desperately to get rid of this colossal burden.
But in romance novels we get to meet them from time to time, and it seems not all of the female population has had sex by the age of 16 as statistics are stating.
Maggie is one of those "social misfits" and in Room 1208 we get to know how she gives this the deep sixsex...;))

Jason is her number one boy and Maggies lucky find, because such well thought plans in real

It has been a long time since I read a book in one sitting. Even a novella. Room 1208 hooked me right away and didn't let me go until the end.

It wrenched some tears out of me, and got me rather hot under the collar, too. I was so rooting for Maggie and Jason that I didn't even mind the super sweet happy ending.

There were elements that I found a little over the top, but then again, I have to say I'm a sucker for this, a too good to be true romance. So what. I was (way) into it while I read it.

At first I was going to give this story four stars only because I wanted to spend more time with these characters. But that's just me being greedy. This story was absolutely perfect from beginning to end. Without giving anything away, it's so much more than just a one-night stand. At its heart - even with the steamy *blushing* hot sex scenes - it's a sweet, old-fashioned love story, complete with a few "it can only happen in a romance novel" scenarios. But, gosh darn it, in a world that seems to ...more

This book is about two individuals, both missing some part of their life, and unexpectedly came together in a one night stand. Although this is technically a novella, the characters are well developed throughout, and there are more back story to both of the characters. Some part of the storyline is really too much of a coincidence, but all in all this is a very sensual short read.

This book was sitting in my TBR (to be read) folder on my Kindle for several months. Now it's in my Keeper (to be read again and again) folder. Wow. To say that I loved this story would be an understatement. I read it on a gloomy afternoon when the world news had me so depressed that I just wanted to escape for a couple of hours in a good romance novel. Two pages in, there could have been someone at my front door yelling "fire!" and I wouldn't have heard them; I was that engrossed.

Here are the

A very short book, but I enjoyed reading it. Maggie is 30 years old and because of a lot of issues has never had a serious relationship. She was fat as a child, felt unloved at home, had an episode of a guy trying to force himself on her. She was seeing a therapist who tried to encourage her to see herself in a better light, but it just wasn't working. So, one night she took it upon herself to find someone, anyone just to love her for that night. She saw a likely candidate in the bar and slipped ...more

Unexpectedly nice hero

The book begins with an absolutely idiotic plan by the heroine to hook up with a stranger to lose her virginity. Luckily for her, she happens upon a man who's not only gorgeous, but a nice guy. The utter stupidity of this is swallowed by the sweet romance. Yes, there's sex in this story, but it's well written and I don't feel as though I could pass an exam to become a gynecologist.

I usually don't read novellas because I feel like you can't get into the characters enough. Came across this one as a must read recommendation, and damn I'm glad I did. I really liked Maggie and Jason together and their own personal struggles. Hot and passionate. I felt so good reading this from start to finish, but now I want more. I think I'll need to take up vodka. ; )

I liked the overall feeling that this story left me with, but it was short and insta-everything. Instalove, insta-fabulous-devirgining sex, insta-marriage proposal. As a result of all the rushing the author did, we were left with sketches instead of full blown characters.

4.25 Stars. LOVED Jason and Maggie's Story!! The perfect combination of being incredibly Sweet, Tender, and Loving while being totally Hot at the same time. My only complaint is that it ended far too Soon. I Want More! Thank you Sophia Renny. It was a pleasure!

I love this story! I am adding it as one of my favorites. The story moved along at the right speed. Loved how you knew how things would transpire without the need of a epilogue. I don't recall every seeing it done that way, kudos!

Great story! Felt the attraction between the hero & heroine right from the start. Great sexual tension. Only POV of heroine, but author made it work. Will read this book again.

Lovely little story. You can guess how the story unfolds but written with feeling and depth and great ending. Plenty to sigh over in a short space of time!
A short, steamy read. Fairly predictable and nothing really special.
