Re-read review June 3rd (2016):

It was the best decision to re-read this awesome book!!!! I'm still sooo happy about my decision!
First of all it was awesome to experience the story of Fifteen Weekends again! I discovered a few things I hadn't notice when I read it the first time.
Of course Christy Pastore is a pure genius! I love that you've got 3 stories in one book! Every lovely heroine of Fifteen Weekends has her own story but all 3 stories are somehow connected to each other. It's soooo good!

Christy Pastore seamlessly carries us through both the intertwined and separate lives of her characters, while fluidly transitioning from past and present - so, well, in fact, that you lose yourself entirely in the wonderfully written storyline. Continuing on from chapter to chapter, you never lose sight of the characters and their stories, and are excited to enjoy the ride along with them; eager to turn the page to continue the journey.

The characters are as well described as their sto

First I want to start by saying this book could not have a more PERFECT release date because this authors debut (although you wouldn't know because she writes like a seasoned pro) is the definition of a summer read! I LOVED it! Fifteen Weekends hits all the marks. It was so fresh and fun, definitely sexy and the author throws in the perfect amount of mystery to really keep you interested. And the reader gets almost 3 books in 1! Each of the characters own story helps keep the pace moving and bef ...more

Fifteen Weekends is a fantastic read! I sat down to enjoy the highly anticipated debut novel by Christy Pastore and the next thing I knew, I was done!

I found myself thoroughly engrossed in the lives of Ashleigh, Emily and Amanda – Each woman’s story interconnected, yet all experiencing and dealing with their own internal wars {of fear, doubt, loss, self-worth, insecurity, passion, lust, etc.}. And, let’s not forget the HOT MEN in their lives who inspire all kinds of sexy emotions!

I was lucky enough to get an ARC copy of "Fifteen Weekends". LOVED IT!!! It had me grinning all day, laughing out loud and I cried a little too. I'd say the perfect summer book, but because you won't stop reading it is the perfect weekend book. It was a sexy, delightful read that kept me interested and excited to see what happens next. Thanks so much Christy Pastore for giving us Liam, Ethan and Vince to drool over!!

Pen Name Publishing is a fairly new publishing company and I signed up for the early reading club, so this was given to me as a read and review copy. I will try my best to write a review that doesn't sound like I'm high on mushrooms or something.

I don't read romances very much, I have two or three romance novels that I picked purely because they happen to take place during historical events like, The Piano Teacher by Janice Y.K. Lee or This Burns My Heart by Samuel Park. So I guess I can say I'm

I absolutely loved this book! The perfect combination of sexiness, laughter, love, and twist! You get three stories tied into one, three, ok four, hot men, and three strong women.

It kept me on edge waiting for the story to unravel and find the connections between them all. I laughed, sighed, swooned, and gasped throughout the book.

Great job, Christy! Can't wait to get more from these characters and piece it all together. (Because there has to be more!)

Loved this book! Christy did an excellent job of pulling you into each character's life and keeping you wanting more. Each time I finished a chapter, I was like..."Wait!!!! Don't stop it there!!!!" And it kept me wanting to keep reading, chapter after chapter. Each character has their own unique story to share, and without giving any of it away, she did a great job of capturing their lives and keeping them intertwined, yet separate. Definitely a summer read I recommend. Great job Christy! ...more

I had a great time reading Fifteen Weekends. Christy does a great job with character and story development. The tale had so many moments that made me smile and others that had me at the edge of my seat. I highly recommend this to the reader who is looking for something to spice up their summer reading list. Great job Christy, I cannot wait to read the next installment in the series!

Fifteen Weekends was great fun to read – at times it could be light, flirty (probably an understatement…) and romantic but then it was also darker with some good twists mixed in. The three main women, Ashleigh, Emily and Amanda were very different, some more likeable than others but all their stories were interesting to read.

I loved how the characters developed throughout the book. Right from the beginning, I’d made up my mind

FINALLY! Something different than all the other repetitive bullshit out there! Bravo, Miss Pastore!

And this book was published two years ago? I can't believe it sat on my kindle for so long.

Three stories that intertwined, at first I wasn't sure how this was going to work, but it totally did.

I think Ashleigh and Liam's story was my favorite - it was a friends to lovers story. Ethan and Emily's story was layered - angst, drama, and suspense. LOVED the twist!!!

Christy Pastore did an incredibly amazing job with a 3 storyline in one book. At first I didn't know if I would fall behind and get confused, but it flowed seamlessly throughout the book. I love how it keeps you hooked from the beginning as well as keeps you guessing with all the twists that you never saw coming and trust me you'll be just as shocked as I was at some of the revelations that were revealed. I had a hard time putting it down and would often stay up late reading it.

Fifteen Weekends was a light, romantic and fun story, a true contemporary romance about a group of three friends, told from several different POV’s.

This book also had some darker moments, especially marked by the near-constant thunder and impending storms in the background. It was great to read a book from a writer that I wasn’t familiar with and I loved getting lost in the world of Ashleigh, Amanda and Emily. And their men!! They were each very different, but yet all had at least one trait or e

Not your typical romance when one man meets one woman and there are a bunch of obstacles in their way, Fifteen Weekends follows a group of twenty-somethings in their pursuit of love, friendship and fun.
With a number of twists and turns, inevitably connecting the crew in one way or another, this story is pretty hard to put down.

The characters are well developed and each scene is painted in detail, making it easy to visualize the whole story unfold. Ashleigh is such a well-thought out woman with h

You know how much fun it is to get lost in the interwoven lives of the great ensemble cast of your favorite television show? Well, reading Fifteen Weekends is just like that. Excited anticipation that builds for next week’s show is what I felt at the end of each chapter.

The book follows the love interests and life connections of three twenty-somethings named Ashleigh, Emily, and Amanda. With each chapter, the focus shifts among them. Pastore skillfully weaves an intricate web of carefully timed

Very unique stylistic choice and it works. Part Pulp Fiction and part Six Degrees of Separation, Pastore weaves together the lives and loves of three woman and their very different alpha men to paint a steamy portrait of the complexities of modern love. The book deals surprisingly well with balancing such very different issues with relationships and combining them all into a continuously overlapping story enables the characters and the issues to play off of each other so that the single stories ...more

What can I say other than Bravo! Christy Pastore for Fifteen Weekends!

This book has everything,romance,lust,suspense,sexy men and beautiful women.
Once I started reading the book I never wanted to put it down. I got so involved with the characters and their stories. I loved how they each had their own story lines but also were a part of each others as well.
This is a Must read! I do have a favorite sexy man (Liam) but you ladies can pick your own or pick them all.

Christy Pastore you are a aweso

This is a good read for sure. Characters braided together with hot men too! Always a plus. Expect the unexpected. Twists with a twist!

I gave this a 4 star review because I struggled with the 3rd POV. That's not my cup of tea, BUT don't let it deter you! You won't want to miss this read & you won't want to put it down.

Overall: once you get used to the POV you will be sucked in and not let go until the last drop. This is definitely a book I recommend.

I loved this. As a reader who loves crazy I loved the crazy pace and back and forth of this book. This is not only a story about the summer it's about each of these lovelies who have their own faults and shortcomings, hell they are human. We are shuffled between them so quickly at points that yes I had to go back and make sure of who I was reading about but the story is so well written I didn't mind. I have read a couple of this authors books and I may just have to read more. I love the failings ...more

Nothing like saving the first book written as the last book read. I’ve met some of the people in this book in other books, so naturally I will have to reread those books promptly.

3 women; 3 different love stories; each one evoking a different emotion from me. Emily is probably my favourite out of the three. Can’t put my finger on why, but I felt the most connected to her. Ashleigh was fun to read. Her “a ha” moment was great. Loved it. Amanda. Oh Amanda. 20% in and I wanted you gone. But in tru

5 Stars

Where to begin... Fifteen Weekends is a tale of three women that intertwine so perfectly. It is the debut novel by Christy Pastore but you would never, ever be able to tell. Her writing is so well perfected, detailed and fresh. I was slightly obsessed with Christy Pastore before even reading this book because she is an amazing person but after reading Fifteen Weekends it is safe to say I have moved on to pure fangirl status!!

Fifteen Weekends is like getting three stories in one! We get to follow Amanda, Ashleigh and Emily through their ups and downs (some light, some dark) of their lives and the men that they loved and are in love with. This book is told from the three women’s POV. It did take me awhile to get into three POV’s, but once I got into the swing of things, I couldn’t stop flipping the pages fast enough.

Three friends, three different lives - how can fifteen weekends change lives?

Since the official synopsis is rather long, I'm bringing you just one sentence to sum up this book! Why not more? Because in the end, that's all you need to know about this book from the start!

Going in, I seriously had no idea what to expect. Before getting to know Christy Pastore at a takeover she did on Facebook, I hadn't even heard of her. So I went in blind, hoping t

My love for fashion and romance stories drew me to this book. When I first read the description, I wondered how reading three love stories in one book would work. It was perfect. Fifteen Weekends takes you on the journey of Ashleigh Preston, Emily Greene, and Amanda Parsons and the men that they love.

Ashleigh is a workaholic who has a sexual relationship with Liam Frost. A relationship was not in her future. Liam was willing to have whatever kind of relationship with Ashleigh he could until thin
