Maria Rose
This lovely warmhearted romance is the story of Jack and Cami, now neighbours but friends for the last six years due to family connections. They've always shared an attraction for each other but due to other relationships were never free to pursue it - until now, when they find themselves both available. Is it finally their turn to see if their fantasies will live up to reality?

I really enjoyed this story. Jack and Cami were both warm, friendly people harbouring this secret attraction for each o

3 1/2 stars for Convincing Cami. Convincing Cami is a sweet story of friends turning into lovers. I really enjoyed meeting Cami and Mikki (her twin). Mikki typically serves as Cami's conscience and her sounding board, but the nature of Cami's struggles in this story prevents her from turning to her sister. Cami is a bit of a neurotic, however, and her past relationship failures have left her skittish about getting involved - and she takes that a bit too far. Despite Jack's reassurances of his fe ...more

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Even though this author has written many other books, I had not heard of her before. However the summary sounded interesting so I thought I would go ahead and read this books. And I was not disappointed.

One of the things I like about this books is that the heroine, Cami, and the hero, already know each other. Cami has a twin, Mikki. Jack is the best friend of Mikki's husband. Jack and Cami have known each other for five years.

Great story. Mikki and Cami are twins, Mikki is married to Ray and Jack is Ray's best friend. Cami and Jack have had feeling for each other for years but were never at the same spot to pursue them. Cami is staying with her sister to help her out while she is pregnant with twins of her own. Cami has just been dumped by her boyfriend via text and is finding herself attracted to Jack in a more then friends sort of way but Jack's reputation is not one of staying with one girl l

Cami is moving behind her twin's family home and right next door to Jack. They have all been friends for six years, but now Jack and Cami are both single at the same time and Jack is ready to claim Cami, but she definitely needs some convincing. His past relationships haven't lasted and she hasn't picked well in her previous relationships. Even though they both feel more than friendship, they don't want to destroy their current friendship with each other, their families and friends.

This is a wel

I am new to Babette James and have read three of her books so far(Kissing Katie, Convincing Cami and Love Burns). Despite that I have come to the conclusion that each book read by her is like interacting with an old friend. Through her storytelling she makes the reader comfortable with the story and characters. Comfortable enough that although you just met them, it seems like you have known them forever. Convincing Cami embodies the feeling of small town family and friends getting together and r ...more

This is my first book by Babette James and I truly enjoyed this light hearted secret relationship troupe. It's the second book in the series but it can be read as a stand alone book. I didn't at any time feel that I was missing out on anything.
Cami and Jack have secretly pined for each other for years but each had other relationships and were never unattached at the same time until now. They finally give in to their feelings but there is so much going on in Cami's family that she asks Jack

A fabulous friends to lovers story that was very entertaining and left me smiling! Jack and Cami have known each other for years and have been highly attracted to each other. Unfortunately, the timing has always been wrong. Now they find themselves both single at the same time and living right next door to each other. The problem? Jack is Cami's brother-in-law's best friend so if things go badly it could be awkward and stressful. Add to that the fact that Cami's sister is adamant that Jack is a ...more

Fun story about life and love. It is definitely your boy/girl next door story, as Cami and Jack knew each other long before they started dating. Their relationship has a realistic feel to it as they are friends trying to fight their attraction for each other. I like that the author is clear about how neither character has been in the right place/right time of their life to let the romance begin. Both have had other relationships, etc. The book is well-written and light hearted. It is one of thos ...more

"I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.”

After knowing each other for years, Cami and Jack share a moment. That moment has them taking their relationship to a whole new level. The guy next door wants the whole shebang while Cami has her doubts if the relationship will work. There were times I wanted to hit Cami upside the head but in the end she eventually came around. Great moments had with the twin sister and brother in law. A quick read that I was able to finish

This was a sweet book about two people who have had the trouble with 'the perfect timing'. When I first started reading this book, I knew what the outcome would be right away, but it was a sweet/nice read. I needed this because I have been reading really emotional and gut-ripping novels lately. If you're looking for a quick/easy read, then this book is for you. It all played out a little too easily for me, and I found myself skimming, but none-the-less, it was okay.

What a warm, feel-good story to read over a long weekend! I was instantly sucked into Cami and Jack's story! Despite Cami's twin sister's pregnancy with twins, there were very few complications in their love story so it just made it an enjoyable and relaxing read. Definitely a fun new author for me that I will have to keep my eye on.
