This book was such a fun and great read. At first I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to read it cause I’m all chicks before d**ks BUT I’m so glad I continued because I ended up loving it!!! I read this in one sitting, it’s a quick, short read but you get so much story. I loved both of the characters and am so glad we got both of their points of view.

One of the best collaborations so far!

A-S-S, I call Luke Wellington! His character made me so mad. The authors did very well in portraying his not so good character to stir up the female leads, Savannah and Brooke.

Bride wards came to life! I had too much fun reading Hourglass. I found it very entertaining. This is the best book to pick if you want a break from all the drama of the other books you are reading. Every scene is hilarious as well as touching. I

What can I say about this book besides the fact that I loved it and it truly was an amazing book. I have read books that have different POV's in them and some I like and some I just don't care for. It's not an easy thing to do. But reading a POV from two females I wasn't too sure how I felt about it. But once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. I read it all in one night and I even dropped my phone on my face a few times cause I was laughing so hard!!

Well what can i say... except omg i loved it!!! Two best friends, One hot guy and so begins a journey. A Journey that will test friendships to their very core, love, honesty, anger, jealousy,heart break and laughs.
Brooke and Savannah have been best friends for a long time and nothing will come between them or will it? I loved this story, although i was a little nervous to start reading it, because i am not usually a fan of triangles or cheating etc, but Hourglass captured me within the first few

When I read the synopsis for this book I was very intrigued and the book definitely delivered! I loved the way the story unfolds chapter after chapter between the two character's lives. I have read "multiple-view" books before but this one was so refreshing. The authors kept the story constantly moving forward by not going back in time to retell different point of views. This book will crack you up and make you gasp! I also had a few good tugs on my heartstrings! With two lead female characters ...more

First off I have to say that I love both of these authors individually and was excited to see what they could create together. When I read the synopsis for the book I was curious how they would pull off the dual POV. I have to say they did it beautifully. The dual POV made me feel like I knew each character. I absolutely loved this book. I read it in one night and when I came to the end I found myself wanting to read more. The main characters are funny and witty and I was able to connect with th ...more

Savannah & Brooke have been best friends for as long as they can remember. Nothing could tear them apart. Nothing that is except Luke Wellington.

Smooth talking, handsome Luke Wellington wants the best of both worlds: the sex with Savannah that has been his regular Friday night hook-up for awhile and the sweetness and relationship that Brooke can offer. Them being best friends is an obstacles but it makes the game that much better for him.

I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion...

I have to admit that I was not a fan of this storyline until about half way through the book. Two best friends fall for same guy and turn on each other and their friendship...not digging it...

Thankfully, the authors redeemed themselves and the story with a twist that peeked my interest. At least I wanted to finish the book, right? Although I was completely disgusted by the male lead Luke, I was able to enjoy the banter between the two fema

Well, let me start by saying wow. Just wow. I fell in love with Brooke & Savannah! Which is hard to do - usually in a book like this I tend to like one but hate the other. The fact that Megan & Kym were able to write two female leads who were both so likable is truly a testament to their abilities.

After interviewing at the fashion magazine she's always hoped to work for, Brooke decides to kick back and have a little fun before some much needed retail therapy. Enter - Lucas. The incredibly hot, s

I absolutely LOVED this book. It wasn't something you have read before. It had me wanting to castrate a certain someone though :)

Savannah and Brooke have been best friends forever. They are so excited that everything is falling into place with their lives. Well all except the man issue, but that's all about to change. For the better? Or for worse?

They always said friends forever and no one would come between them, but can they stick by that? They have for years until the most eligible ba

They share everything...well almost everything.

Brooke and Savannah are best friends who are total opposites. Where Brooke wants to settle down and takes relationships seriously, Savannah likes the whole “no strings attached”, or at least she thought she did until HIM.

HE is Luke. Luke is a player who obviously thought he wrote the playbook. When both girls find out they’re dating and falling for the same man, he plays the girls so expertly that two best friends wind up turning on each other. Thankfully both girls’ ties to each other is so str

This is a great story. It is so much more than the normal love story. This is my first time reading anything from these authors and I am hooked.

The main characters are best friends, Brooke and Savanah. Each of their romances is different and amazing. The plot twists are so good that I couldn’t put the book down. It kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting more. You gotta love the happily ever after and they way these girls get there is beyond word

Excellent! I read this book in one sitting. You need to devour it like that, its like having best friends in your sitting room and them telling you just what has happened over a glass of wine.

Savannah and Brooke are quite different personalities, unique, but best friends.

One likes a relationship, the other likes bedfellows.

I didn't expect the twist of events that came, very unexpected.

It was funny in parts, the set up was brilliant!

I am so glad I got a copy of this to read and review. My thanks

5-Simply-captivating-Stars. That’s what came to mind right after I finished reading Hourglass. It is a book that grabs you from the first page and doesn’t let go until it’s four in the morning and a huge book hangover is taking over! A must read for anyone looking for a quick, entertaining read!

If you cannot tolerate the idea of cheating, then I advise you to step away from this book. However, if you are a full angst lover and enjoy your heart palpating 100 beats a minute, then you need to buy this book. I am the latter and this book did not disappoint in terms of bringing out various emotions; which for the most part was anger directed towards a certain man.

Brooke and Savannah are best friends who end up working for the same fashion magazine, Hourglass. Brooke, a creative editor and Savannah, a photographer. The girls have opposite outlooks on men. Brooke is the relationship type, looking for someone to love, someone to share life with, someone to grow old with. Meanwhile, Savannah is the opposite. A free spirit. A no-strings-attached type of gal. Fun, fun fun is all that is on Savannah's radar. Until Savannah realizes that her Friday night, fun ni ...more

Brooke and Savannah have been best friends for their entire lives, so when the opportunity to work at the same magazine arises, they jump at the chance of being not only friends, but also co-workers. Hourglass is the top fashion magazine in the country. Savannah is an in demand photographer and Brooke gets the job of Design Editor.

Savannah isn’t much into relationships. She is more the kind that is looking for a good time

Brooke Reid and Savannah Prescott are best friends fighting for the attention of the same guy- without even realizing it is happening.
Brooke is a more of the "lets date for a while before we sleep together" kind of girl. Whereas Savannah is all about the physical side of a relationship and appears to be more of a "hit it and quit it" type of girl.

"You have to keep them interested, you can't be easy, but you can't come across as the Virgin Mary either"- Savannah

Hourglass by K.S. Smith and Megan C. Smith - I wanted to get my hands on this book for SO long! It was literally like watching the sands drop down in an hourglass as I waited for this book to be written and watched teaser after teaser make its way to my page! I will even admit to being a bit nervous once I finally got this baby in my greedy little hands. Would it live up to my expectations? Well... I just LOVED this first collaborative effort between Megan C Smith and K.S. Smith!
