A summer job.
That’s all it was supposed to be.
It never crossed my mind that I was about to collide with a man who would obliterate every plan I ever made.

This is what I think of as the perfect 3* read. Nice easy story, nice likeable main and secondary characters plus of course the Gentry family, a little humour and some sex.
I’d hoped for more and at times I thought it was heading somewhere else. The story build but then it just kind of fizzled out and while I liked both Dalton and Cami I never really felt the connection or the pull like I had with their parents.

Ultimately this was an okay read.

I read this book because I’d noticed Turn and figured

I'm a little disappointed with this one - I expected an epic love story like Cord and Sawyer had but I didn't get that feeling between Cami and Dalton, and even by the end it sorta felt like a HFN. Something was missing, even the suspensy bit fizzled out to nowt.

I had hoped for more .... more of their love, more of their relationship, more of the twin bond between Cassie and Cami, more passion, more depth, more of the Gentry brothers because I can never get enough of them!

I can't believe I've slipped and haven't read anything from Cora Brent in so long. Strike brought all the reasons why I love this authors work so much rushing back and I can't wait to see what she'll come up with after this. In the mean time I will definitely be going back to read the books I missed though.

Cami and Dalton were amazing characters and I really liked seeing them together. Dalton seemed a little lost in life before Cami came around and we got to watch

So I'm at 65% and I can't finish it. I just don't think this book is for me. It's lacking depth in the story and the characters and I'm just not finding Cammie and Dalton's relationship believable at all. Some of the vocabulary and the way the author is wording things I'm finding really cheesy and over the top. Just not for me.

Started slow, I put it down and when I tried again, I got into it. The h is very young, and like her parents she falls fast for the older H. He is mad for her, but is also trying hard to get his life plan into play. She sees things happening, which evolves into a dangerous mystery and when they starting working together, they solve the mystery and how they can make it as a couple. Sweet story.

Sigh.... I love the Gentrys, but I swore they ended with the Conway boys, so I was SUPER PUMPED when I learned that the kids were getting stories and wed have all new generations of Gentrys!!
This one, is about Cami, who was one of the twin girls that Cord and Sayer had. And don't you worry, you get plenty of the original Gentrys, but seeing them as dads are so much hotter.
Who doesn't love a hot dad???

Gentry Generation’s book one. I don’t know how long I waited for this one to hit my kindle. Probably since I tapped the last time on Edge and Snow and closed the stories about the first set of Gentry’s. Their children were meant to have a better life. Not only do they have loving parents, no, they never had to live with the shame of being a Gentry. That being said, I was still intrigued on how Cora would spin their stories.

Cami and Dalton were a perfect couple to usher in the newest Gentry Generation! Cami has always been the Lois Lane of the Gentry brood. With her inquisitive nature and desire to delve deeper she was always on the path to be a journalist. With her internship having fallen through for the summer, Cami is spending the summer break from college home with the family and working at the Spa of the local resort.

I am a huge fan of the Gentry Boys series by Cora Brent, so I was so excited when I found out that she would be writing the Gentry Generations series. Strike is the first book and it features Camille, or Cami as she prefers. She one half of Cord and Saylor's twin girls. She is home from college for the summer. Cami is what you would expect of a Gentry. She is strong, independent and sassy. Her uncle Deck got her a job as a receptionist and on her first day of work meets Dalton Tremaine, former p ...more

This story hooked me in right from the get go. The characters are likeable and really fleshed out so it was it was easy to connect to them and I really bought into the romance and these characters.
The story flowed really well, it was engrossing and a lovely angst free romance. There was a nice little mystery side story to add something extra, although, I will say this fizzled out a little too easily for me at the end. All in all, this was a great start to the next generation of Gentry's and I lo

I love the Gentry series and I was very excited to find that there would be a second generation series. I love the family aspect of this series and for me I love the atmosphere of the series more than the individual books (although, they are all really good as well).

Strike is the 2nd in the spin-off of the Gentry series, which features the children of the gorgeous, diamonds-in-the-rough triplet sons of derelict prison-town parents.

This story has heroine, Camille Gentry, a twin and daughter of one of the triplets, Cord Gentry. Camille, or Camie, is shrewd and fiery, but she is very young, with more guts than caution. So, I think it was kind of apropos and served her right to meet up with Dalton Tremaine (what a name!), a guy who has known family d

It wasn't bad, but I am pretty disappointed.
I loved the original Gentry Boys Series and was super excited to discover there was to be a spin-off series. Sadly, book one of Gentry Generations didn't live up to the hype I had built up in my head.
This was actually pretty fluffy. There was so much that could have happened in this story, but didn't. There was almost no angst, and the suspense fizzled out before it had a chance to go anywhere.
I really liked Dalton, and Cami was a couple notches above

Finally I had the time and the right frame of mind to pick up the spin-off of the Gentry Boys Series (which is currently ranked number two in my favorite series ever list after Nalini Singh’s psy-changeling series). I was so afraid to read these books because the last time I read a next-generation-spin-off (the Hope Town Series by Harper Sloan), I hated the books and they ruined the original series for me. Luckily, this experience wasn’t repeated and Gentry Generations did not disappoint me at a ...more

I was so excited that the Gentry kids were getting their own books and of course Miss Brent did not disappoint.

Camille Gentry has been my favorite Gentry kid since always. In other books she always appeared to be a very inquisitive child. Always asking questions, somewhat of a smart ass and very sassy. Glad to see she remained the same through adulthood. Still sassy, still nosy...you get my drift. She comes home for the summer after an internship she really wanted fel

You wonder how can anyone top some of my great loves. All I can say is this author did not disappoint. This is a wonderful stand alone and it is not necessary to read the others. It does make me bit sad if you don't cause they are AMAZING!!! This story involves Cami, a daughter of one of the Gentry Boys, and Dalton a retired baseball player. Cami is ...more

I love wild romantic stories, grunge era flannel, my vintage Kenmore sewing machine, embroidered dishcloths and absolutely everything that has to do with 1980s pop culture (i.e. leg warmers, scrunchies, big hair, early Madonna, boom boxes, wood paneled walls, stonewash jeans, etc).

If you believe in Happily Ever After and the unique magic of a John Hughes film, chances are I'll love you too!!
