Hello, Mr. Right... for Now.

She’s definitely off limits…

Kira Archer has done it again – written a highly entertaining romance with great characters, humorous interactions, plenty of twists and turns and that oh so important HEA ending – but not until there have been lots of diversions en route!

Jenny is back home for a month from studying at a Parisian culinary school. She’s determined to have fun and is even more tempted when the handsome hunk, Jared Crew, literally lands in her lap! He recognises Jenny from his best friend’s wedding and knows she sh

Jenny Boyd has decided to come home for the summer over her school break in Paris to have sort of working vacation helping out in the bakery at home. When she gets back though Jenny goes out for a night of fun and runs into the sexy Jared Crew and one thing leads to another between the pair but what Jenny doesn't realize is she already knew Jared and he's not just a sexy stranger.

Jenny and Jared are both young and commitment phobic free spirits but after their wild night together they have a bi

I've enjoyed some of Kira's other books and I love that cover, so I quickly requested without reading the synopsis. Admittedly, if I would have read it, I'm not sure I would aren't my thing.

Thankfully, Jenny and Jared are both fun characters. They have a boatload of chemistry and the banter was delightful. And I loved seeing the couples from the previous books.

When the waiting period started, it got a bit dramatic. Jenny was rightfully thinking some of the things, but I ha

MY RATING: 2.75/5 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. 

This book was a bit tricky. It wasn't a bad book that deserves a really low rating but it also wasn't a good enough book to reach the coveted average rating of 3/5 stars in my records. 

Let's get into why I gave this rating. First of all, we have two characters are that flirty with each other but lacking the intensity and heat I wanted. There was no yearning between our heroine and

Jenny is happy she finally has a bit freedom. She's studying in Paris to become a pasty chef, but she's back home for the summer. She's found work at a bakery, so things couldn't be more perfect. She also has time to party again and that's exactly what she's doing when she meets Jared. They know each other, but Jenny doesn't seem to remember him. She's his best friend's sister-in-law and she's actually off-limits, only Jared can't resist stealing a few intimate dances.

3 stars -- I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.

*sigh* There were a lot of things going for this book, not the least of which was the fun banter between Jared and Jenny. But in the end, I just wasn't captivated. Now if I can just figure out why.

OK, on the good side is Jared. I thoroughly enjoyed his charming, flirtatious, playboy self. He was hilarious when he was trying to be all charming with ever

“Sweetly, Deeply, Absolutely” is book 3 in the Sweet Love series by Kira Archer. The books are set in and around a bakery, and if there is anything I love as much as romance, it may be cooking. Plus, isn’t the cover so fun and pretty?

The Story-
Jenny is home from Paris on a break from culinary school for the summer and will be helping to run her friend’s bakery while the owners are on their honeymoon. Jenny has always been a bit of a wild card, and while she gives lip service to laying low this

I enjoyed this one so much! The story was fun, sweet, and definitely sexy. Jenny Boyd is in town with a month off from the culinary school she attends in France. Looking for a little fun and games during her downtime, Jared Crew seems like the perfect partner in crime. He's a carefree, go with the flow kind of guy. Since they both shared the no commitments philosophy there are no worries about getting too serious. That is until things get real serious real fast!

A very entertaining read that ever
Ralou by Collector Of Book Boyfriends


It definitely justifies the name of the series it belongs since this has SWEETNESS written all over it. And then some more. Add some swooning too and you got the perfect treat.

Sweetly, Deeply, Absolutely is the third installment in the Sweet Love series and it can be read as a standalone, though there are some teasers/spoilers about the couples in the previous books. And since I’m a weird human being as it is, I decided by mistake to start the series

Two people, both allergic to commitment, meet up at a bar. The attraction is intense and obviously leading toward one hot night together. There are some complications though.

Jenny, home for a month from her Paris pastry school, is visiting her brother, Rick, and his wife, Gina, and will be working at Sweet Treats Bakery with Gina while she's there. She's having a girls' night out and, determined to behave for once, tells her friend, Gretchen, to rein her in if it seems she might revert back to h

A sweet story!

I was really looking forward to Jenny's story after reading her big brother's ( Totally, Sweetly Irrevocably ) and seeing all of the mayhem she managed to cause there. And the Jenny of the first few chapters didn't disappoint. Their meet (meet again, technically) cute was especially entertaining:
He was even hotter closer up. Who was she to turn away a gorgeous man who introduced himself with his face in her lap? That would be rude.

This was just a case of not finding anything really clicking for me. The characters were likable and the story line was realistic and handled with little to no drama but it didn't leave a big impression on me. It was a sweet and to the point romance with plenty of heat and some funny moments to balance it out.

The opening scene is our h, Jennifer, recounting her most wild sexcapades with her friend. She's twenty three and very experienced. Then there's the H, Jake, a thirty year
Not having read the earlier titles in the series, I did find that some of the early interactions felt as if I was missing something – but the clear definition of Jenny’s personality was apparent, and her rather scattered approach to her night (and her life) was up front and quite clear.

Jared, after a rather awkward introduction was (as expected) intriguing and attractive with one bit of puzzlement – and yes, they had met before even if Jenny doesn’t remember him.

Oh it was cute and light, more
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Jenny and Jared get themselves an eyeful of what happens when the carefree lifestyles decides to come back and take a bite out of your life. Jenny for the most part did not stick to her plan to not be so carefree. She needs a bit more growing up and developing maturity. Jared on the same hand needs some grow up time. They both felt that a relationship was not what either wanted but of course life happens. This was a cute read with real life encroaching in on the fun.

Jenny Boyd and Jared Crews are like two peas in a pod: they like to party and have sex and not necessarily in that order. Their attraction to each other is instantaneous and the only thing that is keeping them apart is that Jared enjoys living and he’s sure that Jenny’s intimidating older brother, Rick, will end his life if he and Jenny did anything. “It’s all fun and games until the condom breaks.”

When I first started reading Jenny’s thoughts and actions, I had this moment of: oh, no. This is g

I was really excited when I saw that Jared and Jenny were getting an HEA together because I definitely see them as a couple. They have so much in common being free spirted commitment phoebes. Side note with you don’t have to read the previous books in this series, it would definitely help with backstory and to be more connected to the characters. Jared has always had my heart and he’s beyond funny. Jenny is a character that I would love to be friends with. She is awesome. I love this story becau ...more

I finished this late last night since I had trouble falling asleep, and I have to say, I am glad I stayed up to finish it :) Watching Jared and Jenny, two adults who have a good time and shy away from commitment, fall in love and decide they need to change their lives was great. Jared was caring and sweet and I *might* have swooned for him a couple of times. Jenny was the one to run and it made me a little mad, but I have to guess she did that because she was the younger person in the relationsh ...more

I have to admit, this cover made me SO. VERY. HUNGRY. And the story? Just as delectable! The story was fun, entertaining and full of sparks too. I liked Jenny and Jared. These two characters were wonderful and full of sizzling attraction and both were just so interesting.

I was not at all disappointed with this book. In fact, I loved it so much I am going to be following the author, Kira Archer for now on and watch out for more books from her. Especiall

I really enjoyed this book with it's unique and refreshing plot and characters. I liked the fact that both of the main characters Jenny and Jared were players rather than just one of them; this made the plot a lot more interesting. There were many funny moments throughout the book and there was a good mix of romance as well as character development. I loved the setting of the bakery and quite a few times I wanted to eat some

Jared and Jenny are both like minded people. They aren't looking for a relationship and are enjoying a causal relationship until a pregnancy scare arises. During this time they both are forced to evaluate things about each other and what the future would hold. Jared was a real stand up guy but Jenny wasn't even trying to give the guy the benefit of the doubt. That was my main issue with her in this book. Overall the book was cute and funny but I wish we had an epilogue. It would be nice to see a ...more

I enjoyed this book. It was a sweet story of meeting an acquaintance and giving in to feelings that wouldn't necessarily be well received. I enjoyed the characters of Jenny and Jared. It was refreshing to read a romantic story of a girl who hadn't had her heart broken, been wronged, or was a virginal angel. Jenny was a normal 23 year old girl who enjoyed sex and that isn't something I find in a lot of characters in romantic stories I read. I enjoyed this quick, sweet read.

Thank you to NetGalley

It took me a bit to get into this one. I wasn't sure about the characters at first, but I was quickly won over. I liked their banter/flirting. This was a fun easy romance. Exactly what I was look for to read. I was drawn to this book because Jenny is a pastry chef. Both Jenny and Jared aren't looking for anything serious just some fun. What do they when they want more? Can they take that leap or will they let insecurities rule?

Jared could be real sweet, “the last thing in the world I want to do is leave you right now. In fact”— he turned her around and planted a trail of kisses along her jaw—“ what I’d really like to do is get you back in that bed and make love to you until the sun goes down.” I liked this book.

There was a lot to like about this story. Archer is a great writer and I've loved Jared since the first book in the series. The main reason I didn't give this a higher rating was due to Jenny.

She just came across as incredibly judgmental! It was okay for her to be capable of change and maturity, but inconceivable that Jared might make those same changes when confronted with exactly the same circumstances!? Also (and this isn't really a spoiler as this is a ROMANCE novel) the grand gesture at t

Cute, fun, sexy and of course sweet, just as the title suggests! Jenny and Jared are both looking for a bit of fun with no strings attached, but soon, they are both feeling more than just attraction. I loved seeing the way their feelings for each other developed, especially while they wait to find out if they are or aren't having a baby. The only reason this is not a five star read for me, is that Jenny did not give Jared the benefit of the doubt when it came to him changing his lifestyle the wa ...more

This is a quick read , which is pretty fun about two people (Jenny and Jared) who never had planned to get together as a couple. They like playing the field and they really like going out clubbing and dance clubs and the like. They begin to work with one another when sparks fly between them yet When they eventually make it to his bed , there is an “accident”. Will real life get in the way of a budding relationship?

Great romance. This book is about fear of commitment and love. Jenny and Jared both like, and are accustomed to, a "no strings attached" relationship. When they see that the condom is torn, things become dicey. Many questions run through Jenny's mind. She is not ready for this, as she has two more years of culinary school in Paris. It is a scary situation for them both. The story flows smoothly throughout. It's easy to read. I didn't want to put the book down, because I was afraid I would miss s ...more

Sweetly, Deeply, Absolutely by Kira Archer is Book 3 of the Sweet Love Series. While this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone.

I’d place this read in the young adult/new adult section more than anything else. While the characters were entertaining and there was balanced chemistry, shenanigans and drama throughout the story, I didn’t feel connected to the characters and their situation as a whole. They were way too young and immature imo and that’s not what I’m looking for in
