Welcome back to Friendship, Texas. A town where your best friend may be dating an Olympic swimmer and his best friend may or may not also be an Olympic swimmer you sort of, kind of did the nasty with against Nonna's goat pen.

“Is that…?” I asked, staring at Dr. Burly Santa.
He smiled and nodded. “That would be your baby’s heartbeat.”
The emotion I’d been storing away came

I had read a few books in this series, the books, however, can be read as stand-alone. In Part of Me, we meet Sofia who a few years ago went through an awkward phase and almost hooked up with Johnny - her best friend's fiance's best friend. The two went their separate way until now Johnny is back in Friendship, Texas and the spark between him and Sofia is still running extremely hot. So hot that they try to have sex by the goat pen and end up breaking the fence. I really liked this book as not ...more

Part of me was such a quirky, refreshing read.

A surprise pregnancy brings Sofie and Johnny together.

I couldn't help but love Johnny. Johnny’s reaction is not what I expected it to be. He was great about it and just went with the flow. There are times I wanted to ring his neck, but he really stepped up to the plate. Will he be able to break Sofie’s walls down?

Sofie I going to college and working as well. She is used to being let down and having to take care of herself. She keeps people at arms

This book made a solid on me.. I love the main characters and the unconventional way they fell in love.. their situation might have started as an oops, but the journey they take us in as you flip the pages, it's so much more.. there's love, friendship, family, betrayal and hurt all over these pages, but the outcome is the greatest thing of all of it!

An unexpected pregnancy puts this pair of young characters way out of their comfort zone. Part of Me is a unique story line, with quirky, fun and captivating characters.

The banter between Johnny and Sophie is completely engaging and entertaining, and moves between heartfelt emotion filled prose, to humorous fun filled laugh out loud moments.

Johnny's heart is in the right place, he's well meaning and completely endearing even if he is a bit clueless and at times frustrating, but that

Part of Me by Megan Vernon is book 3 in this series but can be read as a standalone. Sofie and Johnny met a year ago and shared a nice make out session. Sofie was the nerdy quiet girl being picked on so she thought Johnny kissed her out of pity. Now its a year later and they're attending Christmas Eve dinner with mutual friends. Gone is the braces and unruly hair for Sofie and Johnny is even more attracted to her. Taking a joke said at the table seriously, end

Part of Me by Magan Vernon is the fourth book in the Friendship, Texas series and is the story of Sofie White and Johnny Laughlin. Although part of a series it can also be read as a standalone. This is the first book that I have read by Magan Vernon and I can honestly say that though part of a series I wasn’t lost or feeling as if I missed anything by not reading the first three books. Honestly though I will probably go back and read those too since I enjoyed this story so much.

Part of Me written by Magan Vernon is book four in Friendship, Texas. (Upon further research, it is number 3 with a 2.5 that came out so technically speaking it would be number 4! :]). This was the first story I have read by Magan and while it may be part of a collection, I had no issues so I would say it could be read as a stand alone.

This was a very cute and sweet story about two almost strangers who had hooked up a few times and were now in a crazy situation. If you are looking for a

Part of Me was a great 5 star read.

Sofie finds herself pregnant after a one night stand with Johnny. The place of conception was hilarious.

Sofie was a feisty woman who was used to disappointment. She didn’t have much for a family which is where her best friends family came in. She is good at pushing people away.

Johnny is an olympic swimmer with a great personality and good sense of humor. He is

Part of Me: Friendship, Texas #3 by Magan Vernon is the fourth story in the Friendship series. Even though this book is part of a series it can definitely be read as a stand-alone book. I haven’t read the first books yet but I am so excited to do so now! Reading this book was like reading my past. Unfortunately for me, my situation wasn’t filled with nearly as many embarrassing yet hilarious hook ups.

I found the overall plotline of the book easy to follow and so much fun to read! What girl

What a great book. I love the fact that it takes place in Texas with towns that I am familiar with that makes it so much better. Sofie has been best friends with Lia since they were kindergarten. Sofie always has Christmas Eve with her best friend and loves it every year. Sofie met a guy a year ago when she thought that she was not pretty and they kissed and she has been thinking about it ever since. Lia’s boyfriend is an Olympic swimmer and has convinced her to move to California to spend time ...more

Part of Me (Friendship Texas #3) by Magan Vernon was truly a treat to read. The story is about a quirky yet funny and very blunt young girl named Sofie who made out with a very hot Olympic Swimmer, named Johnny once while she was all geeky and in braces. She never thought for a second that the next time she saw him a year later they would start an epic journey together.

Sofie and Johnny, two crazy kids having some frisky fun (and one goat pen) didn't think that sleeping together a few times

Part of me by Magan Vernon is about two people who’s casual hooking up results in a baby. It is book three in the Friendship, Texas series, but they are stand alones, though they do refer to other characters.

Sofie, a tiny 20 year old with shoulder-length curly brown hair, and Johnny, a 23 year old with spiky brown hair and a swimmer’s body, hook up around Christmas time. The first time is by the goat pen, and the picture she paints in that scenario had me cracking up! Sofie wants to know if they

“Part of Me”, is a Texas novel! Everything is definitely bigger in Texas and she proves it. Bigger friends, bigger love. This is the fourth book in Magan Vernon’s friendship series. I have never read any of the previous three books and I don't feel like this one has to be read in order. It definitely can be a standalone. Now, don't get me wrong; I'm totally going to go back and read the previous three “friendship” books for more character back stories. So with that sad I think it shows just how ...more

Part of Me was something unexpected. A pleasant surprise. So refreshing and spontaneous.

The first lines just made me laugh. The chemistry was already there. Sofia and Johnny, the weird geek and the hot swimmer! A lot of flirting and intercourse later and bam, they are pregnant.

Johnny’s reaction? Running off or assuming it?

What about being a man, taking care of a woman he barely knew? Damn I really liked that guy. Not because he was

This is the 4th book in the Friendship Texas series, but can be read as a stand alone. I say this because this is the first book of Magan Vernon’s that I have read. I really enjoyed reading this book and plan to go back and read the first three books.

I truly love a good unexpected baby romance story... and this one did not disappoint! This was also my first title by Magan Vernon and I really want to take a trip to Friendship Texas. I will be picking up the rest of this series VERY soon!

This book starts off really fast, and while I expected some insta-love, it really was a slow burn, even though things started out so fast. I loved seeing how Sofia and Johnny connected at the very beginning... they seemed like total opposites. These

Are you familiar with Friendship, TX? If you are, you will this next chapter in the lives of the residents of Friendship. If you aren't, shame on you. Okay, I'm kidding. But, seriously, you should become familiar because this series is so sweet and romantic!

Sofie calls herself the "quirky nerd." Two years ago, she shared a hot kiss with Olympic swimmer Johnny Laughlin and that kiss replayed in her head time and time again. But, she never saw him again...until he shows up for Christmas

"I never thought I would spend my nights sitting on my bathroom sink wearing only a snorkel and my bra and underwear while my powder covered boyfriend stood in front of me, ready for me to sugar wax him."

Gosh I loved everything about this book! So many laugh out loud funnies, funny flirty banter, but also packed with those real, raw, emotional times too.

I just finished Part of Me by Magan Vernon and I absolutely loved it! Poor Sophie! She had a lot of challenges to overcome and a lot of growing up to do. The recurring problems that generate are related to her dad, her new found baby, and trying to overcome all the new doubt that she feels. Sophie was awkward and left out a lot and that has dealt with her some strong insecurities about relationships. Johnny is a heart felt All American sweetheart. I couldn't believe how good he was, his awkward ...more

Magan Vernon has been living off of reader tears since she wrote her first short story in 2004. She now spends her time killing off fictional characters, pretending to plot while she really just watches Netflix, and she tries to do this all while her two young children run amok around her Texas ranch.

You can stalk or...er...find her online at all of these fun and happy places.
