"No one ever said finding yourself was easy, but it's definitely worth the pain and struggkes you go through to get there."

Reservation for one...please ;-)

Tara Dawn's debut is AMAZING!!! This book is a perfect summer read that will leave you feeling satisfied. Ms. Dawn has given us emotion, drama and one hell of an ending!!!

The story of Summer and Preston is a breath of fresh air. These two characters have so much heat and passion - they don't even need to see each other for the reader to see the smoke coming off the pages.

I feel in love with this story and was so sad to see it end. I was happy with the ending. Eve

I had the honor of Beta reading this book. Sojourn is a very well written and goes into just enough detail, without going overboard. Author Tara Dawn has definitely hit the nail on the head with this book. It has passion, drama, and some down right naughtiness going on lol. But she did an amazing job. Now to the book!!! Summer is trying to find out exactly who she is and what she wants in her life. So she decides to take a vaca to a sex resort. This unlike anything she has ever done. But she nee ...more

Welcome to Sojourn, just leave your inabitions at the door.

After two failed relationships Summer decides, after a lot of convincing from her friend Angel, to go to Sojourn, a sex retreat, to help her find herself again.
Even there her past loves, Preston and Brent are still on her mind a a lot of what if's invade her waking thoughts.
Can she move on from the past hurts and let someone in. Time will tell.

I loved reading this book. It is light hearted, full of angst and the sex scenes are so hot. So

Sojourn by Tara Dawn is a fun and easy to read book. It was a nice escape from every day reality and a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. I look forward to reading more from this talented author in the future.

When I think of sojourns, I think of quiet respites, escapes that will allow you to regroup, and face the world again. Tara has taken that idea and tossed it right out the window! WOW

Summer met her soulmate Preston but they broke up. It took her a while but she started dating Brent. It became obvious that they were not meant to be together and she left him. When he shows up at a bar her and Angel are at with a date, (her cousin whom she already despises) she leaves on foot. Fate plays with her a

WOW! This made me wish I was in my 20s again! Mmmhmm...pretty steamy and what a fun resort to find yourself at but who knows what else is to be found!!

Tara definitely has a knack for writing great characters...especially bestfriend relationships!! Summer and Angel have great personalities as well as the banter they play off each other...great! I really enjoyed this was fun and thought provoking *wiggles eyebrows* hehehe

The title alone sparks your curiousity. So read the story of a shy & timid 🚺 who through her sexual experiences with a mystery 🚹 becomes the catalyst for her new and emerging life and quest for the ultimate 💘er! I gave this novel 3 🌟 🌟 🌟.

So, I received this book from the author as a trade! She would read mine and I would read hers. Damn am I so glad I did!!

"The mirror shows a different woman then I'm used to seeing. This woman is confident, spontaneous, and has freewill. I can't remember the last time I felt like this."

I loved this book, especially knowing it was a debut novel. Not often can you find a book that sucks you in and leaves you wanting more, and let me te

Who hasn't had a broken heart and ended up in a rebound romance? Summer's world comes crashing down after a relationship game changing event occurs between her and Preston. Her way of dealing with it is to jump into a relationship with Brent. The day she realizes it's a dead end deal, she escapes and begins her quest to find herself. Her mind is full of doubt - did she do the right thing? Brent was someone she knew was stable and loved her - but the feelings just weren't there on her end. She co ...more

I had the pleasure of Beta reading this debut novel for Tara and can I just say how much of a privilege it was.
Sojourn is like no book I have read before, it's very different and keeps you hooked all the way through. The twists there is in this book will have talking out load and screaming "I knew it" and " did not see that coming"

So if you don't know what to read next and are looking for something exciting and different, then Sojourn is MOST defiantly your nest read!!

I couldn't put it down.

Tara did an amazing job writing this book. I read it in less than a day because I simply could not put it down. I was drawn in from the first page and wanted to know exactly what Summer was about. There was just enough suspension keep you entangled in the story. I wanted it to keep going. Great book. Definitely take a day and read it. I promise you won't regret it.

I read this book in about an hour today and really loved it.

I was immediately drawn into this book, Summer is in a relationship rut. Her bestie turns her onto this exclusive resort that makes your sexual fantasies come to life. She decides she needs a change and decides to go for it.

When she gets there she finds that she'll have to let her guard down and follow her desires. In the end she may get everything she's ever been looking for.

I had absolutely NO idea what to expect from this book. Expect a journey, there is a huge journey in this book. I'm pleasantly surprised by this story. There is an HEA, but on the way to that HEA the main character goes through many trials, huge emotional distress, lots of tears and some pretty sexy situations. ...more

I was extremely impressed by this debut novel! It was very well written and had an engrossing storyline.
I liked and found it easy to relate to Summer's character. Her friend Angel was funny and a great secondary character. I thought this was a fun, hot sexy, read! I definitely recommend checking out this new author!!

Fun & sexy debut from Tara Dawn! We follow Summer, a woman in between relationships who decides to go on a sensual retreat in order to center herself. What I liked about the book was the perspective of the blindfolded love scenes. It was so sensory and intriguing - definitely a turn on! YOWZA!
