I absolutely love Jennifer's stories. She writes some of the most heart warming, sweet romances out there and when I saw that she had a new series, set in a small town with a sexy brooding cowboy, I was completely sold. Really, what more could a girl ask for?

This was everything I was hoping it would be from the wonderful small town feel to the sexy slow burning romance between Cord and Lexi. Throw in the tight knit family feel of the residents of Whistle Stop and the fierce love of a man for his
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

I was in the mood for a good contemporary romance, so I decided to read this book. While I had some issues, overall it was a fun and enjoyable book. I had some issues with the main conflict, as it seemed mostly for the sake of conflict. There was a story behind it, but I felt that if the characters just talked about it more, they could find a way out of this. And then in the end it got solved so fast it all seemed pointless, like they lost nothin

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

You know you have just read a really good book when you hate to see it end. This is Jennifer Faye's first book in the Whistle Stop Romance series, but each can be read as a standalone.

Whistle Stop, New Mexico has not been kind to Cord Lawson. He is the owner of an extremely large farm/ranch that has been in his family forever part of which includes an old ghost town. He was bullied in school and all the townspeople think he i

I was given this book in return for an honest review, and I have to read the rest!

Cord Lawson grew up in Whistle Stop, New Mexico, and as his relatives died off one by one he gave his word that his family's land would never be sold. He'd hastily married Susan who was dirt poor, but she'd turned the whole town against him with lies and they ended up in a bitter divorce once she knew he'd never sell his legacy. That was five years ago and he swore to never let another woman near his heart. He had

Oh my goodness. Have you ever gotten a book you can't but down once you start reading it. I started this book last night and couldn't but it down, which was 2 in the morning. It was wonderful to read a book where I could picture everything that was being described due to growing up in New Mexico and can picture the little towns that have had it hard due to mines and business closing down.
It was a wonderful love story. It started off with Alexis coming from NY to buy what she thought was a Ghost

Jennifer Faye has done it, again!! A Moment To Love is her best book yet. Her writing style is so beautiful and her characters capture your heart in every book she writes.
The beautiful, although sometimes turbulent story in A Moment To Love, will melt your heart and make you believe in the power of love, trust, and preserving what is dear to one's heart.
It's one of this years most romantic books. It will leave you setting on the edge of your seat wondering if Cord & Lexi can really hash out th

A very smart and hardworking woman !

This is a good book to follow in a series! I liked that she was taking care of her business , but was also interested in helping the community . This added to the romance between the major characters!

‘A Moment to Love’ is about the third or fourth book I have read by Jennifer Faye. I was excited to start this series, because it is takes place in a small town called Whistle Stop in New Mexico. I have visited New Mexico, and it is beautiful. So it wasn’t hard for me to visualized the scenery as I read.

Cord Lawson has lived his whole life in Whistle Stop. The Brazen H, his ranch, has been in his family for as long as he could remember. His great, great grandfather founded the first town, Hagge

This review was originally posted on my blog,The Turning Pages..

Sometime you just need to pick up and read a good romance novel. I love knowing the happily ever after is bound to happen, but what I love even more is the trials that have to take place in order for that happy ending to take place.

A Moment to Love is my third…maybe fourth (oh my goodness, I’ve lost count!) Jennifer Faye book and I love how they make me feel. I tend to read romance novels in between my more heavier reading choices,

When Alexis Greer arrives in Whistle Stop, New Mexico to try and close a land development deal she is in for more then she bargained for. Her dad had been ill and so she is really running the company and they need this deal to work or the company might not survive.

Alexis is taken by the old beauty and charm of the town, as she feels as if she is going back in time. The only problem is many of the stores and businesses are closed. The economy in the town is bad and many people have moved away in

I received this book as part of a goodreads giveaway.

This book was very enjoyable and overall a great contemporary romance. It's a must read, I was sucked into the story within the first few pages. Jennifer's writing style is amazing and has a way of capturing your heart. Throughout the story, you could feel the tension building and see the relationship between Cord and Lexi unfold. Compared to many romance books out there, this book was not raunchy at all. It was very tame and the romance was p

Another winning book by the wonderful author Jennifer Faye. Cord and Lexi both believe strongly in their love of family and will do anything for them. They are both determined people with their own agendas. When they meet because of a business deal, their relationship starts off on the wrong foot. They are both strong willed and are determined to get what they want. This is a fantastic story of how people can put aside their differences and see the other person for who they really are.

Recommends it for: Classy romance fans
Shelves: won
This is a beautiful romance novel! It isn't as naughty as some romances tend to be. Instead, the author presents to you a romance that is as possibly real as the relationship you're in now. Then, before you know it, you've fallen in love with the story! No matter how many or how few of the naughty details are given, you know these two are in love and you can't help but root for them! A very Classy Romance novel! ...more

I love the book - although I did have some minor aggravation by how impeded Alexis was by her emotions concerning her father. Both Cord and Alexis are wonderful characters. The promise of future stories concerning Whistle Stop is set up throughout the book. I enjoy how Alexis tackles problems with sensible, realistic solutions. Jennifer Faye has created a wonderful start to a new series of books. I look forward to the coming books.

This is what I would characterize as a "sweet" romance story. I loved the characters and think these two are my favorite for the series, so far. Both had family issues, of course, and manage to (eventually) bring out the best in each other. Looking forward to the third book (already read the second!) ...more

New York meets New Mexico. What a wonderful love story. Devotion to one's family can be limiting to one's love life. Entertaining and a real page turner and may also cause one to shed a tear or two. I am eager to read the next one in this series and see how romance blossoms for Tony and the teacher. ...more

Great story!!

Loved the small town and it’s characters. Cord and Lexi were perfect for each other. Two strong bullheaded people fighting for everything and everyone but themselves. When they both give in to what makes them happy, the pieces fall together.

A sweet summer romance with a cowboy with a golden heart. When two impassible minds bicker over land, the hearts are set alight. I cannot help but be charmed by a convincingly head-strong and smart woman falling for a man whose humanity is defined by actual struggle, not story props.

I enjoyed reading this book. Cord is a very believable character as the loner dyslexic cowboy. Alexis as the New York business woman. The story was just a bit too drawn out for me but still good.
