But when her adorable Aunt Gertie—a secret romance writer—urges Jenna to embrace her wild side, Jenna tumbles into bed with Adam Thomas, a guy she’s just met, for a fun and fantastic one-night stand. Too bad Adam is the one guy who’s total...more
Well, where do I begin ? I laughed a lot when I read this book. I think it is worth reading this book for laughs and for some issues which are tackled and handled well.
This book had some winning parts and some really annoying parts who brought down the rating! But generally it was a pretty decent read.I bought this book under the kindle first offer. I would have rated this book a lot higher if the childish drama had been cut down or handled differently. The childish bits didn't match be ...more
I particularly liked Adam as a guy wh ...more
I have read a few of Tawna Fenske's books now, and one thing you can always be ensured of is that you are going be be entertained. About That Fling was definitely entertaining, but it didn't quite grab me as much as the previous books I have read by this author have.
I didn't dislike the story, far from it. But whereas it started at a great pace, there are large swathes of it where it almost slows down to a complete stop.
The premise for this one is really ...more
Overall Opinion: I hate rating so low on a book, but it was kind of...boring. I was expecting a super funny and sexy read by what the few reviewers say about it, but it just felt like the humor was too forced and the "steamy" parts that others described where non-existent. It was an Amazon first free book...so I can't complain too much!
Storyline: This is Jenna and Adam's story. They meet at a wine bar when they are both stood up by people they're supposed to meet. They flirt and end up ...more
Writing hate/love reviews is easy, but I absolutely dread writing reviews like this.
You Think So...
So, the overall plot of a taboo kinda off-limits romance is well done. There are multiple laye ...more
Browsing the kindle, I skipped to A - Z and tried to flick but my kindle decided to open this book. I took that as a sign and dived straight in.
I must say having known nothing about this book (my sister bought it as her prime download), I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy this story. I'm not sure what label to put on it so I'll break it down quickly, girl has a one night fling and is considering making it more, when she realises said man is her best friends ex hubby. Throw in work cross ...more
We have Jenna, who is sort of a crisis manager for the hospital she works for -- she tries to keep bad info about the hospital out of the news. And we have Adam, a former attorney and now sort of conflict manager... he works to help two opposing sides work toward meaningful agreement. He's been brought in to help resolve the conflict between the nurses union and the hospital, only Jenna doesn't know that yet. In a twist ...more
I am pretty picky about my heroines, and most times in books I can tolerate them or am happy if I don't hate them. I loved Jenna, she was funny, compassionate, kind of dorky, (shooting range on Friday night), selfless but a bit selfish at the same time and wonderfully flawed. I ...more
About That Fling was a good afternoon read.
The storyline held my interest even though at times the drama was a little unbelievable. The characters were likable and relatable.
Overall About The Fling was a sweet, fun and heartwarming read.
Thank you Montlake Romance via Netgalley for the advance copy.
Relationships are tricky especially when you’re dating your best friends ex-husband. Further complications follow for Jenna McArthur, including an erotica writing aunt.
Fast paced, quirky, humorous, and moments of romance, I really enjoyed this novel. There was a lot of information about past and currents relationships given, that added greatly to the overall story. Whilst easy to think it would be a typical romance, the twist at towards the end makes it far from that. Really goo ...more
The weirdness that started it all off for me was how fast they seemed to be eating and drinking at their initial "meet cute". Order a glass of wine, a few lines of dialogue, time for another glass of wine... it was strange. A few other issues like that throughou ...more
Jenna ends up having a one night stand, an amazing, out of this world - one night stand... one that she ...more
I picked up this book by way of Kindle Daily Deals. It seemed to be a lite hearted romance and for $1.99 the risk seemed worth it.
This story has a simple premise of a one night stand that turns into love. In between is complications and mild drama. The characters are cute/funny and endearing. When the story focuses on the couple in love with their cute banter and thoughts, the story is good. It's the in between stuff that just loses the way for me. I give it 2 1/2 stars and a forgettab ...more
A fun book. Oh, what a tangled web we weave. Jenna ignores everything she doesn't want to confront, and ends up with all her relationships on an edge. From her best friend, her job, her erotica writing aunt, ex boyfriend, and the man she's falling in love with, she's dug herself so deep, she doesn't know how to cope with the results of her deceit. A funny, heartwarming story about true love. The sex is there, and you know it, but no details.
