The Plan by Tawdra Kandle

Contemporary romance. 2nd book in the Crystal Cove series. Can be read as a standalone romance. I havent read the first book but the friendship formed were well prior to the series so I didnt feel like I missed much although it was a lot of people to keep track of. There is a lot of background and history included in the first 50 or so pages. I lost track once or twice where we were in time.
Alternating first person POV by Emmy and Cooper.

Cooper is commitment shy. His
Real. That's all I can feel for this story. Real. Real life. Real love. Real emotion. Real characters. They stick with you from the first book, to this second one in the series. The author knows just where to prod the characters further, and when to pull back. Both have had a rough go in the world of life and love. But together they melt the pages and make for a very, very hot ride.

This was such a good book I started reading and could not put down.I loved seeing members of the Posse again it was like visiting friends. I Loved the Romance and as always Tawadra Kandle created characters that seem so real and makes you want to visit them again and again. Would Suggest you Read it is the perfect way to spend your day.

This book pulled on every one of my heartstrings and by the end I was crying, so I would suggest having kleenexes nearby. I could definitely relate to Emma as I have been in her shoes, divorced, mom of three and trying to keep it all together. There really is so little time for "self". I felt sorry for Cooper, a man with two failed marriages for which he takes all the blame for them failing. Cooper has decided that he isn't the forever type any more and tries to get Emma to go along with his ...more

I was gave this arc in return for an honest review. In no way was I bribed or forced to leave the following review.
The Plan by Tawdra Kandle is a story of second chance Love. Emmeline Graham has went her entire first year of high school crushing on the one person whom never noticed that she existed. Then she met Eddy Carter who was a surfer boy and eventually got married. All was good until one day her decided to leave to find better and

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Emmy made a little appearance in the first book of the series, but here we get a lot of what is now my new favorite couple Emmy and Cooper.

Cooper is completely convinced that he is too damaged to be in a real relationship with a woman. One night stands are the extent of his romantic interactions with women. Hes got his core base of friends (in the posse) and thats about all he wants to interact with on a regular basis. Emmy is a

I will start by saying that Tawdra Kandle is doing an awesome job with writing contemporary romance!!! Since this is part of a series (Crystal Cove Books) - you really need to read The Posse (the first book of the series) before reading The Plan (the second book of the series).

Tawdra does an amazing job of describing the characters and the settings in these books. You will definitely fall in love with both Cooper and Emmy while reading this book. I was so wrapped up in this book

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions in this review are 100% my own.
This is book 2 in The Cove series. I loved this story and didnt want to put it down. Tawdra is a very talented author and one of my favorites.
Emmy and Cooper both have given up on love or so they say. I loved reading their love story. I understood Emmy on a more personal level. I was single for many years with a young daughter. I gave up on love and men. Until one day I decided I was tired

The Plan by Tawdra Kandle
5 stars

Loving this series!! Emmy has survived divorce and pulled her life together to be a strong single mom that can handle it all. She's not focused on finding another man, but being alone for the rest of her life does sound lonely. Carter has been burned in his previous two marriages and doesn't believe he is destined for a happily-ever-after.
As these two find they're attracted to each other, strongly, the sparks fly, chemistry heats up, and they are a explosive

It was the best gift I have received in a while! I read The Posse (1st in series) the day before, so I was already loving the characters and the setting, but I was in love with Cooper and Emmy after 1st chapter. This book is very well written. I can't say there was ever a spot where it drug. I was enthralled throughout the entire story. Cooper had my heart ripping in two in some parts and I shed a couple tears but definitely well worth it. Emmy is absolutely perfect for Cooper. She might just ...more

this was a great book. hearing about how love makes you feel keeps hope for those that don't believe in it any longer. Emmy knew she always loved cooper and at first she thought she could love him for just the sex but then cooper's daughter made her open her eyes and realize she wanted the whole package and after a long talk with his ex wife and friends he realizes what he is missing. a must read book

I love this author. I started off reading her spin off series and had to go back and read these. Her stories captivate readers. If you like a good romance novel with adult topics, this writer is the one for you. I loved every twist and turn and enjoyed getting to know the previous books characters better. I love series and this one definitely fits the bill.

I loved The Plan! Watching Emmy and Cooper dance around each other was sweet. I love when characters are real and react in a way that is believable. When Emmy is talking to Cooper's daughter I felt her love and pain over him. I just wanted to eat Cooper up! I just really enjoyed reading these two.
