Within Six Months was such an incredible story! I was so excited for Tommy's story ,and it was definitely my favorite! I fell in love with his character in the Miss Taken series and was so excited when this author announced that his story was in the works. Jade and Tommy were two broken souls that needed to find themselves as well as each other. Jade was perfect . Sweet, beautiful, and had so much love to give if she just opened up. Their story was an extremely emotional one. And their journey ...more

Read For Author:
Cleo Scornavacca touched the very heart of me with this book. It touched so many emotions throughout this book. For me, that's the sign of a good book.
Tommy wanted a fresh start - he didn't tell anyone where that was or what he was doing. Only two people knew Viv the woman he bought the Beach house from and his friend Daniel.
Jade, three years later still closed off from her brother's death is upset to find out someone is "renting" her brothers house little does she know it was

Tommy wanted a new start, so he did not tell anyone who he was or what he did. Tommy only knew two people at the beginning of his new start. Viv, who bought the beach house, and his friend Daniel.

I loved Jade and Tommy. Tommy buys Jade's brother's house, then the secrets and lies start. When I read this story, I experienced many emotions: My heart hurt, I was angry, I was happy, and so much more.

Their story is full of love, where they forget the painful memories and surrender to true

I had been dying to read Tommy's story since finishing the Miss Taken Identity Series last summer.
Tommy made a very powerful declaration at the beginning of the book about wanting to start over and begin anew. It really set the tone of his feelings going forward. I have loved his character through all of the other books and wanted him to achieve the happiness that he sought.
I liked Jade instantly, yet knew that she was going to be a challenge. Tommy meeting her on the dance floor was so

From the moment Jade fell into Tommy's arm a connection was made. They both felt it, especially while they were dancing the first time they met. An emergency pulls them apart, not knowing if they will ever see each other again. The next day proves they will, and will be neighbors. Many Ups and downs will be in their future. Friendships are made, relationships are tested, pasts are revealed. All that left me on an emotional rollercoaster that I loved. But could Tommy and

From beginning to end this book captured my heart. The familiar setting of the Jersey Shore made me remember places I had gone to when I was younger. The love Story between Jade and Tommy was amazing. The tragedy that Jade went through and still was able to fall in love and find the perfect guy for her is the best kind of story. This was my favorite read of the summer hands down.

What a great read from Cleo Scornavacca. Tommy and Jade's story takes you on a very emotional journey, learning to deal with grief and finding love when you least expect it.

He decides to buy a property on the beach it's needs renovating but it's the beginning of his fresh start.

From Miss Taken series comes the stunning story of Tommy Conte, best friend of Rain...
While I was Mr. Kane's "captive", Tommy has alwyas be a mistery for me, he was an intriguing character, and I wanted to read about him, dig into his story, his background. In Within Six Months, we see Tommy as a man, full of redemption of what he did and what he wants in his life. Yes, Tommy did things, but who is saint? He is kind, loving, loyal, strong man.
When he meets Jade, it is instant, their attraction

This is author Cleo Scornavacca's newest series, it does have a tie in to her Miss Taken books, but it can easily be read as a standalone and the reader will have no problems catching up or even just starting here. If you haven't read her other books, you should! They are amazing!

This book is about Tommy and Jade. Tommy is running from his life and Jade is just barely making it through hers by just going through the motions. Tommy buys Jade's brother's home and the secrets and lies begin. Tommy

Tommy stated at the very beginning of the book that he was ready to start over and find his happiness. I loved that and knew right away what he was looking for. I love his character. I fell in love with Jade as soon as I met her. Beautiful and sweet. The instant connection between the two told me that they could be something fantastic, if only Jade would open up and let it happen. They had a rough road to travel, but all the hard times is worth it in the end. Beautifully written, emotional and a ...more

This is the first book I have read/reviewd of Cleo Scornavacca. It will not be the last. It stands alone very well but I must read the Miss Taken stories soon so I can get the history of these characters..
Tommy and Jade meet and the sizzle is mutual.. They part without knowing the mutual connection that exists between them. This story is a beautiful slow burn story so well written I was hard pressed to put it down for any reason.
Read it, you will not regret it.

This was the first book by Cleo Scornavacca that I have read, however I will now go back and read the Miss Taken series. I really enjoyed this book and the characters. I thought they were very well developed and the book was well written given the seriousness of the back story of both main characters I look forward to reading more books from this author. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book for an honest review.

Hmmm...where to start...this book just hit me wrong kn all kinds of ways..I couldnt connect with any of the characters and it was just odd...there was a very serious storyline involved but it lacked all the emotions that should have come along with it...the hero calling someone else baby made it hard for me to see a real connection between him and the heroine...and then there was Reece who it seemed was some big important person and was more alpha than the hero...just not for me..

Tommy and Jades story was so sweet. I was rooting for them through the entire book. Six months is a short time to rebuild a house, fall in love, and start a life with someone. Tommy was determined to do just that. Will Tommy find everything he is searching for within that time frame or will it take him longer?

This is a new to me author and this is the first book I have read from her. I was so surprised at how drawn in I was finding out that there was story before this one. I was able to enjoy the story and not feel like I was missing something. I was so glad that I was able to read such a book that gave you all the warm fuzzy a good read should.

A enjoyable read that is filled with powerful emotions. These two characters are both wounded and that just makes the growing romance between them all the more poignant. I really liked Tommy and Jades chemistry. This is a book that deals with lots of emotions and the sweetness of it will melt your heart. I'm voluntarily posting an honest review.

Tommy and Jade are both broken characters and they work hard at trying to move on with their lives. This is a beautifully written story, which is raw, gritty, heartbreaking, emotional, and with twists which all had me totally captivated throughout. This talented author has done an amazing job in penning this story, and I look forward to reading more from her in the future.

This is my first book from this author. and this story pulled me in. This story flowed well and had a great storyline. I really enjoyed this book. I did not feel that I missed anything by not having read Miss taken first to get more of the characters background story.

This book gives you all the feels a wonderful romance novel should give you. You get struggle, acceptance, hurt, pain, and then love when you least expect it.
Tommy and Jade both are running from things in their lives and we will go through it with them. It's like you can feel their emotions pour off the pages. A pretending
