ARC Received from author in exchange for an honest review

I have a new book boyfriend people and his name is Tate Washington! I love when a story has me so engaged and reads effortlessly. That's exactly how Whatever You Do was to me.

Harper Lindell attempts the Internet dating world after her past failed relationships. She's the girl who has been cheated on more than once, so of course she's jaded and untrusting. She decides to mix it up in hopes of finding her special person.

Well ok, first of all I love how the author brought Harper and Tate's story, they are amazing toghether but...

I has some issues with Harper's insecurities, at some point I wanted to slap her so hard, she was trying to see thing where there were none, it kind of drove me crazy, like really crazy.

Tate is everything a super hot sexy male should be, kind, thoughtful sweet, tender and full of passion, I am sooo in love with Tate!!

He does everything in his power to keep Harper happy and secure.

Whatever You Do is the second book in Stephanie Smith's Try Again Series. This book can be read as a standalone and I think Stephanie does a wonderful job filling in the blanks from the past characters in book 1. If you want to full feel of the previous characters then I would say read book 1 before going into this book. Saxon and Brooke are in this book qu

“Andrew?” I question as I reach the table.
“Yes. Harper, hello.” He shakes my hand and the first thing I notice are his warm eyes. They are gentle and sincere and I feel instantly comfortable with him. “Take a seat, please.”
He gestures to my seat before pulling it out for me to sit in. I smile up at him in thanks for the chivalrous action as I slide into the chair.
During our emails back and forth this week, Andrew and I had figured out that we are from similar small towns

Tate Washington *sigh* Where on earth do I start, trying to form sensible comments on Tate Washington is hard. Big time hard.
Anyway, focus Louise. Whatever You Do is book 2 in the Try Again series, book 1 was Saxon and Brooke's story and I totally loved it. I didn't think, after reading Wherever You Will Go that it could get much better. I was so wrong.

This time, the story follows Harper, the bubbly, sexy receptionist who worked with Brooke and Saxon. She was sweet and funny and I absolutely k
This is a book about a sweet and kind girl, Harper, who is hungry for pure and unconditionnal love but has a very bad luck in love as all the men she's been with, despite giving off perfect boyfriends' facade, were all cheating on her. So she goes on an online dating crusade to find REAL love, the ONE. Her battle ground, her favorite cafe where she feels safe enough to meet her dates, but also where works the most handsome, hotest guy she ever met: Tate. Even if she can admit to herself, and eve ...more

In Wherever You Will Go we met Harper Lindell, friend, colleague, the kind of person you want in your corner when something goes down. In Whatever You Do, when her day goes from bad to worse, losing her job, and then her boyfriend, Harper starts to think that this may just be the catalyst she needs to effect change. Maybe the kind of guys she's always been attracted to are part of the problem, maybe she needs to change it up a bit and try new ways to meet someone.

I really enjoyed the first book in the series, Wherever You Will Go, and there was something about Tate that intrigued me, so I was very excited that he and Harper were getting their own book! Harper has the most crap-tastic day of her life; she gets fired and catches her boyfriend cheating. She's sick of falling for the wrong man so she signs up for Internet dating. She plans her dates at the Café where Tate works. Those first few dates are some of the funniest th

WHATEVER YOU DO starts with Harper having what is probably the worst day of her life. After getting fired as soon as she arrived into work, she heads to her boyfriend’s place seeking comfort, only to catch him in the act of cheating on her. Obviously she’s angry and hurt, but even more so because he’s just the latest man in a long line of men who have cheated on her.

Tate, a tatted hawtie , falls hard for Harper, who has a bucket-load of trust issues, seriously, one more jumping to the wrong conclusion and I would have had no issue with pushing her off the ledge!! Apart from Tate having the patience of a saint, they worked well together, both finding the "missing" something within each other.

There were some humorous moments around Harper's Internet dates, a few eye-brow raising moments with bible verses being flung about like heat-seeking missiles and a swif

First let me thank Between the Sheets Promotions and Stephanie Smith for providing me with an ARC of Whatever You Do in exchange for an honest review. In this book we get an in depth look at Harper who we met in “Wherever You Will Go”. I liked her from the start, she was the cute, quirky and highly love able receptionist at Argo. She’s the girl everyone could instantly love ‘cause she is just awesome that way.

This is the second book in this series. I was so happy that I was going to be able to read the second book for review because I loved the first one.

Author Stephanie Smith did not disappoint with this one either. This story is based around Harper and Tate but was really happy to see the main characters from the first book were back in this one.

Harper’s life was no cakewalk. Her father was a minister and she grew up in a very religious family. After she moved out it did

“I know deep down this is it. He’s broken me. I’ll never recover from this. The straw that broke the camel’s back. Tate Washington is exactly who I thought he was. I wish I had listened to my head all those weeks ago when it was holding up the red warning flag, telling me to stay away from him.”

If you were to look up the definition of BAD LUCK in the dictionary, next to it you would find a picture of Harper. She's got a rock chick type of vibe to her from her short black bob to her eccentric, yet fashionable clothing choices. Harper is fiercely loyal to her friends and loved ones, but she's also pretty sensitive. And she has the worst luck ever.

In the beginning of Whatever You Do, I did get a little confused. We went from her working with her closest friends at a company tha

This is an awesomely sweet and romatic read and it is funny too! I loved everthing about this book right off the bat.

This book starts off with Harper have the crapiest day with crap just piling up on top of more crap. It was enough to make her decide she needed to make a change and that change was to try internet dating. Really, she decided her way of meeting me hasn't worked out for her so she wanted to give internet dating a shot. Well, le

This had some hysterical moments. Each date that Harper had were so funny they will have you crying from laughing so hard. the one good one was when she finally realizes Tate is what she wants even after fighting it completely.

Tate is the sweet kind guy who didn’t deserve to be judged the way Harper did. this was the one thing about Harper that got to me-she judged Tate based on her past relationships and than continued to do so even after they got together. She never quite trusted him. Never qu

I absolutely adored Whatever You Do. This was a funny and cute story that had a new spin on things. Harper is having a bad day. Not correct that, Harper is having a REALLY bad day. She has been fired, caught her boyfriend cheating and now has no place to live. If it could go wrong for Harper, it does. The poor thing can't seem to catch a break from anywhere.

Whatever You Do is a perfect read for those lazy, rainy days. It's light, fun, and sexy. While the characters' relationship progresses quickly, it seems natural. The author gave the story a nice pace.

The story starts out and poor Harper has a very, very bad day. However, I did find myself chuckling at her expense. Wait. Let me back up a little... It actually starts out when Harper is working and she first meets the delicious Tate. I was honestly a little confused at the way the book started out.
