I have read this author's YA books wow totally different writing and man can she write. This book was hot hot hot smoldering hot. Certain things the author wrote about in the book I can never look the same way again. (Clothes dryer) lol. I love how the author mixed sexual scenes with comedy.

I can not get enough of this author and Natalie's story!

There have been so many times I really felt like one of the girls in these books and that doesn't change in Almost Too Far. The dialogue is amazing, banter is hilarious and the chemistry between Colin and Natalie is HOT!

We are introduced to Colin's family in this one and let me tell

OMG! Loved this book. By far the best in the series, but I do hope there is more to come. Natalie and her girlfriends were freaking hilarious!! I laughed so much through this book.
Ms. Peart starts this book out hot and steamy for sure, no holding back. Then kicks into fun, then action and then more fun only to finish it out with more hot & steamy!!
I read this so quick, only because I just couldn't put it down. It felt very short but fully loaded.
We get to see the whole gang again, not just N

Almost Too Far is the continuing story of Colin and Natalie… Well, really it’s another installment of the predicaments of Natalie and her girl posse – Caroline, Jena and Ali, and their newest addition, Svetlana This time, however, there are some new characters added to the mix – Colin’s incorrigible great grandmother, Helga, and her band of uninhibited, sassy-talking, octogenarians. When the elderly crew lead Natalie and company to Las Vegas on something of a wild goose chase, they find themselv ...more

What a wonderful conclusion to this highly entertaining and deeply touching story of finding a love that shines brighter than the sun, completes you in every way, and promises a future that you never dared dream of. This is what a great love story should feel like!

What starts out as a fun birthday for Colin’s great grandmother Helga turns into an all-out frantic search when the feisty old lady goes missing. No one, least of all Natalie, is prepared for what they find along the way. Mix in the za

Writing Style:
What amazes me about A.O. Peart's writing style in this series is her ability to squeeze such a wildly crazy fun story in such a small number of pages and have everything just feels so right. These books never disappoint, you won't believe how much can happen in under 200 pages.

My Opinion:
Let me put it to you straight, if you pick up this book make sure you have nothing planned to do because once you pick it up you won't put it down! It's becoming pretty customary for me to read an

I just finished Almost Too Far and I really liked it. This is a series so it cannot be read as a stand alone. Almost Matched is the first one followed by Almost Broken. This is a story about Natalie and Colin's journey into something new and exciting into something familar and safe. They have both been through alot and had to break down their walls and learn to trust again. The story starts off with Colin and Natalie going to see Colins grandma Helga. It is her birthday and this will be the firs ...more

A couple of hours into the party, everyone notices that Helga is missing and so is her friend, Stella. Colin, Natalie and the rest of Helga's friends start searching for them and phoning everyone they know trying to find the pair. Natalie calls her girlfriends to help with the search too.

Can I please just say first off....... OMG Heck yeah! This book starts out with an absolute bang that hooks you, reels you in and never lets you go. I read this book in one sitting. I just couldn't put it down.
When Colin's great grandmother goes missing from her own birthday party, an issue that has been ignored or unacknowledged in their relationship comes to light. Now Natalie must decide if she is going to continue allowing things to go as they were or to stand her ground and make things cha

I was given this novella by author A.O. Peart for an honest review. This is book 3 and the last novella of the Almost Bad Boy series. This series was a total delight to read and I am so glad I was able to share my reviews.

Colin and Natalie are still together and this time the book takes another character into the mix. Colin's great grandma Helga who is over 80 years old but feisty as all get out. Helga along with her friend Stella take off to hit the casino with out letting anyone know during He

Almost Too Far was a fun, wild ride. It wasn't quite as crazy as Almost Broken Up, but it was still exciting to read. I continued to love Natalie and all of her friends. I swear, this series should be called Almost Bad Girl instead of ...Boys. The girls' insane antics made me laugh. I especially liked Svetlana. I could see her having her own series with her Russian mafia goons.

Natalie and her friends weren't the only funny characters in the story, though. Colin's grandmothers and their friends

4 Entertaining Stars!!

Almost Too Far is the third book in the Almost Bad Boys Series. Almost Too Far is a very quick read, but I found it to be very entertaining. The main focus of this book is Colin's grandmother's 85th birthday and the crazy events that take place.....It appears to be a normal birthday party until someone notices that Helga is missing and that's when the fun begins. It's a race to find her.

There were a few new characters in this story. Most of them were Helga's friends and tho

This was a quick read for me because I so thoroughly enjoyed previous books was quite happy to read this one. Once I began I was immediately caught up in the heat between Colin and Natalie before they head out to a birthday party for his great grandma. Most of the characters have been introduced in previous books and so this was a smoother read because to me it was all about the fun. They get to the party things are going along but then two of them disappear -Helga and Stella. It is soon apparen ...more

Colin, Natalie, and all their friends are back in a new installment in the "Almost Bad Boys" series. They have overcome most of their issues that haunted them from the past and start this book a solid couple in love. It's incredibly fun to read. One of the things I love about this series is you can really see how the characters grow in personality as time goes on, and how friendships remain rock solid throughout, especially including Colin's great grandmother, Helga, and her friends.

I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. I loved the first two but this one was so much better. It was funny and seeing how much trouble Nat and her friends could get into. There is always something and this time, they are searching for Colin's grandma Helga and one of her best friends. When they find them, trouble is close at hand. Colin and Nat still have the chemistry that burns off the pages. There is still the trust issue for Colin towards Nat. Can ...more

Everyone starts to search for her with no results. Colin leaves Natalie with Libby, his grandmother, while he goes to check on a friend that may have some information on where Helga may have gone.

OMGOODNESS, I believe this one is the best in the series yet!! I have a thing for the elderly getting into trouble LOL.

To me that is the highlight of the book.

Trust me there are a lot of scenes between Nat and Colin. Very heavy scenes..wink wink, nudge nudge.

This starts out going to Colin's Great Grandma's birthday party, however it all goes down hill when the birthday girl comes up missing!!!

Trust me when I say that Nat's crew are all ready to help find Helga and her friend Stella, including

This story is hilarious, hot, & has plenty of action. Although the beginning felt as though we were walking in mid scene, quickly becoming hot & heavy, I consider this the best yet of the series. I've enjoyed joining these characters on their adventures, & believe me they have plenty! I could not contain my laughter!! Nat's ability to attract trouble astounds me while Svetlana & her "escorts" bring more spunk to this tale.

Just finished reading and I have to say I really enjoyed it. Natalie and her girlfriends are crazy so it makes for a good funny book. Plus Colin is super hot!! Now the reason this didn't get a 5 star is because I'm screaming for more Colin. When hes there and present i freaking love it when hes not I'm wishing he would come back. The only thing that this book lacks for me is more of just them and there relationship. Now don't get me wrong everything else that's go

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
This is the third book in this series. This storyline spans over a 24 hour period, so it is fast paced, and action packed. In this story Natalie and her merry band of great friends are on the hunt for a missing great grandma, casino’s, and gun toting Russians. The chemistry is still steaming between Natalie and Colin, and the sex scenes are hot. As with the other books in this series, the banter and humour is great.
This is a well written story,

Almost Too Far is another great installment into the Almost Bad Boys Series. It will have you roaring with laughter and squirming in need.

Colin is as hot as ever and shows us a softer side in this book. He introduces his family to readers and the craziness that is them. They’re hilarious and will draw you into their circle in no time. Natalie and her friends join in the fun as they search around for more trouble.

Each page will elicit laughter of some sort which is only rivaled by its sexual inte

Almost Too Far is book three in A.O. Peart’s Almost Bad Boys Series. This book takes place in the space of 24 hours and theres a lot packed into that 24 hours. Missing grandma’s, casino’s and gun toting Russians. Sounds like something out of the movies. However this book is one that shows how close family and friends can be and how much it means to be a part of a tight nit group of people.

I enjoyed this book as much as the first two and I recommend this series to anyone looking for a good funny and steamy read that will make you laugh and have you wanting more. Colin definitely shows how much he loves Natalie and you can't help but love him just as much. Helga and her friend are just as funny as Natalie and her girls.

Ok so what I said about book two Almost Broken is like reading a suspense novel well that is nothing compared to this book Almost Too Far.

Now Colin's great grandmother Helga has disappeared and it will take not only Colin but Natalie her new found gun moll Russian friend Svetlana along with Natalie's girlfriends to help find her.

OMG this book has it all! Twist, turns, ups, downs and all arounds. It's like "Where is the world is Carmen Santiago" only is grandmom Helga!

I loved this book. Of course I fell in love with Natalie the first time I met her but my love for her has grown. Her feisty spirit, sarcasm and the friendships she has are great. Not only are all her friends along for an adventure but we meet another group of female friends that are a bunch of spitfires. There is laughter, a little drama and a whole lot of fun. Also, there is Colin, hot hot, Colin. Where can I find a Colin of my own? Another home-run in my book.

The chemistry between Colin & Natalie is as hot as ever! It was a fun read. As the book takes you to the journey to Colin's greatgrandmother's Birthday. Between Helga & her friends they were an absolute riot! I laughed out loud often in this book. I loved it!

Almost Too Far is the third installment in the Almost Bad Boys Trilogy. It's a mystery, thriller/suspense (which I love) about an organized crime family. It's very well written, I enjoyed the characters, and it's full of drama and humor. I admit, I'm going to miss Colin, Natalie and their cray-cray families.

I was given this book by author for honest review. The high jinks continue in book 3 of the Almost Bad Boys series by Angela Orlowski-Peart. This time Colin’s family is the instigator. Natalie collects her friends and if off to the rescue or so she thinks. I loved reading about Colin and Natilie and all her exploits. Her gang of friends and the Sisterhood of Sorority young or old.

Angela has done it again with a funny comedy. It was beginning to end non-stop to put down. Parts will leave you laughing and you have to keep on reading to find out where these grandma's went off too with hidden twists and turns. I cannot wait for the next one in the series.
