Sweet Nothing

It is enough to break any man: watching what could have been my future slip away before it was ever in my grasp. The possibility of losing someone I loved, before she was even mine, is something I never would have imagined. Certainly nothing I'd ever wish on anyone. I go to her every day and wait. Wait for the impossible, for a sign, for her to look at me . . . hoping that ...more

4.5 ”penny for your thoughts” STARS


Is it possible to love a story and be confused at the same time? Going to reread and ask around on what others got from the ending. Perhaps I'll see if there's a support group some where out there? For now though, I loved the ride, enjoyed the writing and adored the characters.

Thinking there was a bit more foreshadowing than I picked up on, "fixing our memories" and of course the title itself. Still going back and forth on what Josh and Avery's end

The book starts pretty ok...with Avery and Josh's story of how they came together and their life as a couple. I have to be honest that at moments it was kind of boring and if it wasn't for the author I would have DNFed it at about 60%. I didn't understand why such a big part of

Holy good grief and have mercy on me! Just color me mixed up and completely upside down with nowhere to go in my confusion. It's hard to even know how to review the situations involved with this style of plot and book. Yes, it's mesmerizing and well written, but I'm still feeling a bit of disappointment in the ending. To be completely honest, I really prefer a more completely resolved ending than readers will find here. Not much more that I can add without giving up spoilers.

WOW, what just happened here????

I was going to give it a 3,5 to 4 stars as it was good but I expected greater (not so "smooth") from these authors and then, I reached 80-85% and BANG, the world turned on its axis!!!!

I never saw it coming and this is brilliant!

So, 5 stars it is and I won't tell anything about the story to keep the surprise. Just read it and do it until the very end, even if you think it's too "sweet and perfect" for these authors sometimes in your read because it's not what you t

Sweet Nothing was nothing like I expected, even while reading I found myself a little stupefied (by the end, a lot stupefied). It started off so strong, I felt a connection to the story, but also a strong involvement with the romance. The pacing of Avery and Josh's relationship was perfect, an instant connection, while still taking its time with development and just the right amount of tension. As the story progressed, it lost some momentum and began to stagnate. At the halfway mark, I felt like ...more

What the hell?!
I'm so angry right now...
I had so many expectations from this book and I'm so disppointed. This book was rushed. It was like a car race. Now they (Josh and Avery) were strangers and after 5 minutes they were together (I won't say more because I don't want to write any spoilers). I really didn't like this couple. Actually I didn't like anything about their relationship. I liked Deb and Quinn more.
Anyway... I read other books written by Jamie which were so beautiful, but this one

I spent the last 20% bawling my eyes out. Jamie McGuire and Teresa Mummert can write one hell of a story. Beautiful! Tragic! The feels! Maybe I can write a better review when my heart doesn't ache for more.

This plot sounds too far-fetched to be real...
If it had happened to one character, maybe... but the same thing happening to both of them at the same time sounds a bit too much of a fantasy to me...

After months of off and on reading this book I finally finished it. I really wanted to like it more than I did but I just could not connect with the characters so I wasn't invested in their story.
I had a hunch about where the story was going and I didn't like it even though I thought I would.

What did I just read??! I absolutely love Jamie Mcguire and I was so pumped that she was finally coming out with a new book but Sweet Nothing made no sense. Half way through I started to get confused and unfortunately stayed that way all the way to the end. I can appreciate the idea of a confused surprise ending but that was sort of painful. I guess I'll just wait forever for the second book amd hope it will cure my confusion. :( ...more

I was seriously impressed by most of the medical/nursing talk, for once authors did it right!

3.5/5 stars

Sweet Nothing is an adult contemporary romance. The narrators are 26 year old Josh, who is a paramedic. And 24 year old Avery, who is a nurse.

I really enjoyed the opening chapter. It was thrilling, amazing, scary and unexpected.

Both narrators have had bad things happen to them in their pasts.

For most of this book I really enjoyed both characters. But I kept wondering if something more was going to happen to make the book more interesting/different. At 60% I decided to go read the good

Holy beer cheese on tater tots, this book just blew up my brain.

Let it be known that I am a huge Jamie McGuire fan in general, but I also really loved Pretty Little Things by Teresa Mummert, so I was super jazzed about this collaboration. The title intrigued me, and now that I've finished, it's literally PERFECT. I could see both of their styles at the surface, but what was so amazing was that it blended so well that it felt like they were the same person.

When I started reading the book, it read like a love story, which I really liked except for the portrayal of some female characters (I mean come on, no one is that desperate, give our gender some credit). But it still read like a nice love story where a guy loves a girl and she loves him back, where both have their insecurities but they deal with them together.

The ending, now that's a tricky one. Here's an explanation for it by the author --> (view spoiler)

Okaaaaaaaaaaaay. Here we go. I just finished this one and I have no words. I know totally lame, but I just don´t have them. I´m still shocked what just happened and what these two authors did with my poor heart. I liked that the book is switching between male and female pov, I always like to see what´s going on in the head of the male character and I think the fact that we get a look into Josh´s head is huge reason why I ended falling for him so hard.
He seriously is everything you wanna meet in

DNF @ 15% (60 pgs.). Really slow start. I don't normally like quitting so early, but I found myself majorly skimming because I was bored. It also might've helped if the synopsis was more descriptive as to what I was getting myself into. I don't like these ambiguous descriptions! Maybe I'll come back to it some other time...

Update 11/4 - I just read spoiler for ending...definitely gonna pass on finishing this one.

Okay, I have a lot of mixed feeling after reading this. The first 80% was so-so for me. Then the excitement of the storyline picked up some pace, and then it ended. I am confused as to why I actually feel angry with the ending..... This was left up in the air and unresolved in a way that left me without some satisfaction.

I wasn't sure what I was going to think about this book. When you hear that two best selling Authors are teaming up to write a book, you want to get excited, but you're not sure if you are going to love it as much as you love their other books. I dove in anyways. (And I'm so glad I did)

This book GRABS you from the very beginning! Not only was the prologue pure perfection, but the entire flow of the book was on point! The characters are not only people you find yourself wanting to be best friends

**I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.**

I was so excited to see these two authors come together for this read and they didn't disappoint.

Josh Avery is a new to the city. He's a paramedic and a well known manwhore who has slept with most of the nurses at the hospital. He has his sights set on Avery Jacobs, someone he thinks is unreachable. When tragedy strikes, they end up having an unbreakable connection. Avery can't quite trust Josh with his past the way it w

Josh and Avery know each other loosely through their line of work, she's a nurse and he's a paramedic. Josh has a devil may care attitude where Avery has a very standoffish but hard work ethic.
She thinks she's got his number but a brief encounter at a road stop light changes everything, thrusting them into a.....I thought an epic love story.

This book will be different for I think was intended!!!! It's hard to review it without giving away things you just shouldn't even think about ahead of time. This isn't spoiler remove kind of stuff - it's bigger than that and it's not a blanket statement. So if that intrigues you pick this up! This was a page turning romance with all the everyday situations. What sets this apart is all the cute little added tokens of love, they just endeared me!!!!

“Something about being in a hospital made anything personal impersonal. Bad breath, sexual partners, foot fungus, vaginal odor, gastrointestinal noises, even past relationships and bad habits were no longer private, they were health history. In a hospital, doctors were priests, and anything less than cleansing your soul was an act of aggression against your well-being.” 2 likes
