Kyle is such an adorable dork. He's the IT guy who is not all that alpha, but rather sweet, shy and unsure. He hits it off with Haley on two fronts: at work and on the phone, only she doesn't know they're both him. Haley is getting over a bad relationship and is trying to find someone that's right for her. It takes her a bit but she realizes she's developed feelings for Kyle. After a rough start they start a relationship only Kyle has yet to come clean. Haley has trust issues so it was bound to ...more

So I have a confession to make, I was so hesitant in reading Jamie Howard's second book because unfortunately I was not a fan of her first book, Until We Break at all and found the story line and characters emotionally taxing. But OMG, I am so happy that I didn't let Until We Break deter my decision in reading her second follow up because Until It's Right blew me away and left a big fat smile on my face.

I like the idea behind this story and I enjoyed their messages at the beginning but I missed the point when their relationship transformed from being strangers to being friends who share their secrets...

Bob: C’mon, that’s so lame. You could at least come up with something cool. Like Thor.

Haley Mitchell is ready to move on from her ex and mend her broken heart. On a night out with her girlfriend, she meets a guy that just might be her "Mr. Perfect". But when he accidentally gives her the wrong number in the noisy club, the mystery man behind the "wrong" number becomes somewhat of a confidant for Haley. He is safe... a mystery to her and she is able to have a honest "conversation" with him and values his opinion. And she doesn't even know his name, so she nicknamed him Clark (afte ...more

I’m so in love right now.

So crazy, ooey gooey, hopelessly in love.

This book, you guys! It drove me crazy! It made me laugh, it made me ache, it made me want to throw my Kindle (gently, onto the couch cushions) with frustration and, just when it pushed me to limits of my patience, it took a turn that left me breathless, swooning, and so deeply in love.

Kyle Lawson is basically the opposite of alpha. He’s nerdy and awkward, and more than a little insecure. If you’re worried that this may come off a

Until It's Right by Jamie Howard is the first book I've read by Howard. Although it's a spin off from Until We Break, it can be read as a standalone and miss nothing. I received a complimentary copy for an honest review.

Haley Mitchell was beautiful, funny, sassy and still recovering from a heart break. Kyle Lawson was the attractive, geeky IT guru that Haley met the first day of her new job.

I loved the premise of the book. Haley was ready to start dating again. She met this great guy at a bar wh

Sensuality: dunno, I didnt get to that part yet.

I tried to finish this. Twice. It had a lot of tropes which I love like nerds, betas, work romances, and missives before meeting but something was missing and I couldnt pinpoint it.

Well, it becomes obvious that it is the spinoff of the previous book and you dont want to read the previous bk because the H/h sound like assholes who cheated. There is that.

“Until It's Right” by Jamie Howard is a great book. I was drawn into the story after I struggled through the first few pages.

I have to say “FINALLY” a book that again lets the reader really feel how a relationship develops.

Kyle was developed as a really interesting character, refreshingly not one of the common alpha males. Instead he radiated a quite strength that sometimes is even more precious then those alpha males, as it is a rare quality.

Haley was a likeable enough character to connect to a

I just absolutely adored this book. ADORED it. If you don't think you can fall for a beta hero, you must read this book. Kyle is wonderful!! I love that I went into this knowing nothing about the plot (I hadn't even read the back copy! Haha) so I'm not going to say anything but that I smiled through the entire thing, I could barely wait to get back to it when I had to put it down, and I loved every second of it. It was just an absolutely charming and beautifully executed read! ...more

This one was fun! I love nerds and Kyle is the most adorable kind of nerd -- smart, shy IT guy.... He's Seth from The OC all grown up and I love him.

Haley is still recovering from a broken heart and perhaps it was only a soft-spoken non-threatening nerdy guy like Kyle who could win her heart but circumstances keep getting in their way. One of them? The secret Kyle's been hiding from Haley.

See, Haley met a guy at a club and transcribed his number wrong. After texting to the wrong number she kinda

“OMG, he’s so adorable”

“OMG I’m so in love with this book!!!”

This was a book that I intended to read leisurely while I had down time at work and spread it out over the next week or so. What I didn't expect is for me to love the story so much that I couldn't stop reading and ended up finishing it all in two days.

Haley just got out of a terrible breakup that lead her to lose not only her boyfriend but also most of her friends along the way. She also hasn't spoken with her family in four years, so now

I was recently talking with some other authors about our favorite romance hero tropes. There were a lot of good ones that came up - the marine, the CEO, the jock, the best friend's brother, the band guy, the new coworker, etc.

But my favorite romance hero trope?

I like them nerdy and sweet. Give me your brainy computer geeks, your awkward nerds, your sweet boy-next-door who blushes when his crush looks at him. That is my type. The best friend who "was there all along!" The nice guy. The smart on

When I first saw the blurb I thought “yeah, this looks like a cute book“, then I was reading it and my reaction was this:


Seriously guys, this book is all kinds of cute and awesome! I somewhat wished that it had a different cover though, because that cover doesn’t go along with this book… at all!

I loved the writing and the format of the book. It was so funny! The dual POV worked wonderfully here, and Haley and Kyle’s voices were totally different. Usually the male POV is a bi

I usually like my books raw, dirty, get the idea. Yet, every once in a while, I need something that cleanses my palette. Something to bring a little bit of light back into my world. I'm so happy to say that this book did that for me. This is my first read from Jamie Howard and I truly enjoyed it.

The story is told in dual POV, which I really like. I think it helped to build both Haley and Kyle's character. To be able to experience the journey from both of their views.

I've been anxious for more from this author ever since finishing up Until We Break a few months ago. I think she completely outdid herself with this one! Until It's Right was so different than her first but just as captivating. It is filled with secrets and angst and laughter and will have you not wanting to put it down! I literally read this book in one setting, I loved it that much!

To be honest, I kind of didn't like Haley when we first met her in Until We Break, but not because of the person

Until It's Right is a sweet romance with a side of smexy providing a much needed does of warm and fuzzies.

I adored Hayley and Kyle. Both have some emotional and self-esteem issues as a result of previous relationships gone bad. It was refreshing to see a male main character portrayed with the level of romance and attachment shown by Kyle, he wasn't afraid of his feelings for the most part.
The simple use of one digit being input incorrectly for a phone number inspired the whole fate/destiny

When she meets someone in a club that sparks her interest, she takes his number and promises to be in contact. Problem is the number she saved in her phone isn't for the guy she met but after a series of funny back and forth text sessions, the guy on the other end quickly becomes someone she relies on.

Until It’s Rights is the first book I have written by Jamie Howard. The blurb caught my attention when she asked if I could review it but I won’t lie say that I wasn’t getting my hopes up for anything. And she proved that she is definitely worth taking the chance on!

I really enjoyed the story of Kyle and Hayley. They “meet” due to a wrong number fiasco. They chat here and there about things in their life but nothing ever moves beyond that friend zone. But it’s in these texts that Kyle learns who

Those who read Jamie’s first book, UNTIL WE BREAK, will remember Haley, Luke’s girlfriend until Sloane returns and claims him.

In UNTIL IT’S RIGHT, Haley is doing her best to move on and forget her heartbreak surrounding Luke. She takes a new job and meets a geeky, quirk, and oddly sexy

Utterly stunning read !!. This is Hayley and Kyle's story and the idea behind how these two meet was magical. If only all wrong number's ended this way. I smiled so much through this read I thought my face would crack.

Until it's Right is a new adult contemporary romance by author Jamie Howard. I love the idea behind the plot of Until it's Right. Girl meets guy at bar. guy gives girl number. girl gets number wrong and starts a text romance with wrong number guy. Not to mention her real life romance/friendship with her cute coworker. And oh, yea, he also happens to be her wrong number texting buddy. It was just too cute of a concept

After getting out of a long-term relationship and wanting to meet a new guy, Haley goes out with a girlfriend and ends up meeting a guy and exchanging numbers. Unbeknownst to her, with all the loud music she doesn’t get the correct number. When she decides to text the new guy she realizes it’s not him but strikes up a “texting relationship” with a guy she dubs Clark.

At the same time, she starts a new job and becomes friends with Kyle, the resident IT guy. Kyle is definitely a bit of a nerd but I
