Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around. - "Vanilla Sky"

Time changes people, and in Jared's case, it's no different. High school was a struggle for him, and it was a year of heartache. He'd already lost more than anyone should have by the age of eighteen. But when he gets another chance, years later, with the one girl he has wanted from day one, he c

This is an amazing start to what is going to be one hell of a journey between the gorgeous and very sexy Jared and the beautiful and innocent Kollie!!!

One night she wakes up to a call from her friend Jamie, she gets up for a drink and her life is about to change big time, she bumps into Jared!!!

E.N. gave us two beautiful characters, Kollie and Jared, both with morals and virtues that make them loveable. Their interactions together are fun and flirty and so much sexual tension! You will find yourself wanting Kollie as your girlfriend and Jared as your boyfriend or maybe both of them together...
Kollie is funny and strong willed and she won’t take anyone’s shit. I love the relationship Jared has with his family and how his family loves Kollie.

Their pasts are haunted by personal anguish

I usually don't like books that are short because I feel like the story won't flow or it'll be rushed.. And really I just like big books(and I can not lie lol).. But, Missing Summer was well put together and I didn't feel that it was rushed at all.. I want to know more on the what happened in both there pasts.. And who is this dang older man with scars on his face??? I need to know !!

*I received an ARC of this book so this is an honest review.*

This was actually a nice little read. In the beginning, I kind of thought it was a little rushed, but then I had to start thinking that this was only part one of a bigger story. I was concerned that since it was such a quick read that it wouldn't allow enough time for the story and the characters to develop, but I thought E.N. did a really good job! This story had many high points for me but also one or two things I thought should hav
This book was amazing. It's a short read and quick witch I usually hate and I never read short books but I LOVED this book.

Kollie and Jared are so cute together. I loved there there interactions. I loved everything about them and I loved them together!

There is more to Kollie then I think she even understands right now. Something happend but she can't remember and I'm dying to know what and praying at the same time it isn't what I think it is.

OMFG what a book!!! I am loving this story between Kollie and Jared and how passionate they are together!
Vol 2 picks up a year after Vol 1 ends and it brings Jared home again, with the help of his mum.
Kollie has been dealing with PTSD regarding her past that although she can't remember during the day, it's clear in her mind during sleep!!! Still emotional at how Jared just up and left, she's shocked to pieces when he turns up at the pool house...
Jared has spent the year regretting running from

Sometimes if you're given a second chance you should walk away, other times you should run right to it. Grab it for all it's worth, all you've got because you may not get another chance. This book was a wonderful story of love, loss, and love again. Jared and Kollie are both survivors. Each find a way to make it, move on and look for something more, something that could bring meaning to their lives. Jared leaves town the moment he is old enough searching for something more. Kollie is tossed asid ...more

I enjoyed the book, found it interesting that it started in the summer of 2016, then jumped back 2 years to give you an insight in to the start if Kollie (a live in nanny with parents who kicked her out) and Jared the oldest of the Crowe family
What I want to know is whose Cara ? And whose the girl that Jared refers to when f**king up her life ? Hmmm answers needed, hopeful as this is a cliffhanger the next instalment may answer these,

Kollie is an 18 yr old, working as a nanny, looking after two teenagers, Leslie and James Crowe. She lives in the pool house belonging to Sunny and David Crowe. She loves her job and even though she has no ambitions beyond being a nanny and settling down and becoming a mum, Kollie has a deep dark secret that keeps her from moving forward and having a relationship.

It's not very often that you come across a new author and her words keep you hooked. Well this one did from page one to the last. The book is short read with a definite cliffhanger that you honestly can't wait for.
Kollie is a nanny for a family with older kids. The family takes her in because her own threw her out to fend for herself. Jared the oldest in the family had been gone for some time. There is some mystery as to why he was gone, I can only hope the author fills us in soon. They start t

A well deserved 5 stars. I literally devoured this in one sitting. I couldnt put it down. It had everything and I was hooked from the start. There is mystery and a lot of sexual tension it had everything you could want. The author threw everything in there mixed it all up and gave it a little bit of spice just enough to wet our whistles.I loved the characters and the story was well written. It has left me with so many questions to which the answers cant come soon

Wow! This book grabbed me right from the start! Right from the beginning I was trying to figure out what happened between the two main characters (Kollie and Jared). Kollie is a full time nanny to Jared's younger siblings and that's how they meet. Kollie has had something traumatic happen to her in the past but we don't know yet what it is. Jared has returned home, but it is a mystery as to why he left in the first place. Will they be able to help each other escape from their pasts and find happ ...more

Kollie is a live in Nanny for two teens at 18 years old. Her family life was less than desirable. The Crowd's seem to be the best thing that's happened to her.
Then Jared comes home...
He is the eldest Crowe child and 3 years Kollie's senior. He makes her think all sorts of naughty things. 

This is obviously just an installment, so yes, there is a cliffhanger. It definitely draws you in with the final page. It will be interesting to see how all the characters and situations interlink.

Just finished it and wow! All I can say is I need more right now. I have soooo many questions going through my head right now. I am loving Kollie and Jared, there is so much sexual tension between them. I love the banter back and forth between these two. I can't wait to see what's in store for them. This is a debut for this author and I can't wait to read more by her. Excellent job E.N. Hudgins. Go grab this book it's a quick read that will have you be

Wow! What an amazing start to this little series. Kollie and Jared are fun, easy characters that you fall in love with, and with that ending! I need to know what happens next! I can't be left hanging like this! Is it March 15th yet?!?

Read.... No... devoured this tonight, really enjoyed it... My only complaint? I haven't got part 2 yet!!
Like that there is mystery surrounding both Jared and Kollie, there are clearly things we don't know yet! Arrgh it's left me wanting more!
This is a really well written start to what I'm certain will be a fab series! I got goosebumps while I was reading at one point! It's very emotive!
Marissa Olson (readingcorner18)
Ugh leaving me hanging again!! We get our questions answered, but by the end of part 2 there's even more questions.. I do love when authors keep you on your toes and leave you wanting more. I hate that Jared ran from her in part 1, but the real question is will she run after hearing the news of what went down with Cara and Jared???
Heather Hollister
This book is a great read. I really enjoyed reading it. It is well written. The story flows great. Kollie is my character. I am really glad her and Jared are starting a relationship. Give this book a try.

A year later and things have changed and things have been discovered and just when we are learning more and Kollie and Jared are rebuilding and falling harder something might come between them. And we are left to wait.

** I received an ARC of this book, so this is my honest review. **

There's not many books that I give five stars to, but this one definitely earned 'em! Now part one was good, but this one was way better. You know with part one I was thinking it was going to be just your average erotic romance novel, but then part two came along and I was like "plot twist!" I just love how it turned into this mystery/suspense kind of thing. I just kept finding out things and things kept happening that I didn't e
