Actually I don't really like established couple. I mean what do you think could really happen, right? Thank goodness, I feel encouraged to read this. This is their journey to the wedding day. All of that disagreement come crashing down until they got their well earned HEA.. :)

Review: These were super cute, super fast, and super short stories that developed quickly and moved along at a rapid, but totally fun and entertaining pace. The titles, as you’ve probably guessed, are based on the songs from the musical Grease.

Jason and Paul are complete opposites…in almost every way, but they are truly so complimentary and perfect together. Jason is an insecure, goofball accountant who loves musicals. Paul is the gorgeous guy from the upper echelon of his offic

(Based on Short&Light Read Category)

The One That I Want & Hopelessly Devoted To You by RJ Jones is a series that I read and read and then read again. Yes, it is one of those things which automatically become a favorite read, especially since singing in my mind are two of favorite songs from a favorite play made into a movie s

To be honest, it was such an enjoyable read, I almost didn’t notice when I’d reached the end and then went, “That’s all of it?” They dance to their own tunes, bend their own rules for each other and tried to hold on to their secrets with all they had. I loved the two main characters, Jason and Paul; also how they danced around each other shrouded in their own insecurities.

A very happy-making tale, aided by amazing audio-visuals and a determined cat. I’m sure there will be more than one humming t

Paul is obviously crazy about Jason.
Can't get rid of the cat, Dave. He has to deal with it. :)

I really enjoyed this series !
3.5 (4.0) stars

We revisit with Paul and Jason for their wedding. I loved this series but I wish it was longer.

Bottom line: Sweet!

This was very short and caught us up on what happened between Jason and Paul from the end of the first book to their wedding in this one. Jason's parents are bigoted a**holes, or at least his father is. His mother might just be under his thumb, which is sad, since she let that come between her and her son. Dave the cat was a real hoot, a fearless killer of spiders, although he did tend to piss in unwary shoes. One thing that really impressed me was that Jason was willing to draw the line when it ...more

This short story is the sequel to The One That I Want and should not be attempted as a standalone. Basically, it’s one big, squishy, feel-good epilogue that is a must read for anyone who read and enjoyed that first story.

Jason and Paul, our loved-up main characters from the previous book are back. They’ve been together for a year and are preparing to walk down the aisle and become husband and husband. Jason is trying (and failing) not to panic at the thought of being married in a church packed t

In this second installment of the story of Paul and Jason, a year after the initial story, we get to see the road to the wedding. Can upper crust Paul meet Grease loving Jason in the middle when it comes to the wedding plans?
This is a short story and it’s a lovely continuation of their story. I would suggest reading the first, The One That I Want, to fully appreciate this one. It’s very sweet and fluffy. We get to see where Dave came from (and an awwww is required) and why he’s so important. We

From that review: "With Hopelessly Devoted, R.J. Jones merrily brings us back into the lives of faithful and true Jason and Paul who meet, romanced and fell forever in love in The One That I Want (The One That I Want, #1). With fingers snapping, hips a swaying, and melodies playing everywhere, its time for the boys to get hitched! And the plans are for them to do it in grand style.

I was pleasantly surprised to know that there was a sequel to “The one I want” – this cute couple so deserved a sequel!

After one year together, Paul and Jason’s wedding day finally arrived, but, even marrying the man of his dreams, Jason’s life is not only roses…

Being together on a day by day routine, showed them the struggles, adaptations, concessions that they would have to face if they want their relationship to work. They will get some things right, ot

Hopelessly Devoted is the follow-up to The One That I Want by R.J. Jones. In the sequel to Paul and Jason’s story, they continue their obsession with two characters from Grease.

The story starts on their wedding day with a nervous Jason talking to Paul’s sister. Jason, though, is distracted by the thought of not having any family there to support him. Paul’s family members have taken to him, support him, and love him like he hasn’t been loved in a long

Hopelessly Devoted follows on the heels, well one year later, of RJ Jones' The One That I want. Paul, one of the city's most eligible bachelors, has proposed to Jason. Jason wants to marry Paul but the stress of a big wedding, with all the luminaries, political and societial, in attendance, Jason begins to get cold feet. It's up to Paul to convince Jason that this wedding and this marriage is for them alone, nevermind who is watching the proceedings. And, like he did in the first book, Paul step ...more

Oh I wish these two were in a full length novel, I just love them.

In hopelessly devoted we get treated to the many disagreements and arrangements that need making for a wedding and of course the sweet making up.

There's so much love seeping out this book it really warms my heart. The humour is mixed in with the banter between Paul and Jason.

The wedding is so sweet, you won't be left wanting.

Just loved it - enough said!

This book is one year after Pauls proposal( and what an epic one it is ) you must read Your the one that I want first to get the full effect of the story, but if you accidently grab this one first you can still follow quite well. ( I do suggest you read the other its so much fun and you find out more about why these titles are so cool and understand the significance of the wedding party.

This book was just as funny as the first.

This book picks up 1 year after "The One That I Want" left off. Paul and Jason are preparing to walk down the aisle.

As Jason is getting ready he flashes back to all the important moments that got them there. The fights about pre-numps, Jason's non-existent relationship with his family, and Dave the cat.

I love that Paul made sure the reception was all about Jason and his love of all things Grease.

This is super sweet and low angst. I love the hilarity that surrounds Dave! He very well could be one

This was a good follow-up to Jason and Paul's story. This story tells some of what has happened to them since we last saw them and leads up to their wedding. I loved that everything didn't come up roses for them. They had to fight for their relationship. They faced trials and tribulations, but they make it through with love.

This was a sweet ending to their story that I really enjoyed
