One mouthwatering temptation...

All Daisy Goldsmith wants is to get out of her small town, leaving behind the bullies who've taunted her. Attending culinary school in New York has always been her biggest dream---a dream she's not confident enough to pursue. After all, she's nothing but a "fat cow." But when her brother's best friend, the man who's always secretly held her h

"The outside feels different," Jon said. "But it's also gorgeous. Unique. Rare. Like you. And also like you, the inside is even more beautiful. That's where the heat is. The heat can melt through anything. Even stubborn jerks who never thought they could be close friends with a girl and care about her this much."

A delightfully charming second chance romance. It is the story of 17 year old Daisy and her brothers' older best friend, Jon. They all grew up together. Jon comes from a broken, abusive home, and has been taken in many times throughout the growing up years by Daisy's family. Daisy has always crushed on Jon, but life goes on and they grow up. Jon goes off to college, but when he comes back, sparks fly between him and Daisy. Daisy is very unsure of herself and a virgin. Jon makes her feel beautifu ...more

Much like the first two books in Laura's Not Yet series, I adored this one. The combination of brother's best friend/little sister and friends with benefits tropes worked for me.

I adored Daisy and Jon. They were great, complex characters. Their chemistry was wonderful. It was painfully obvious to me that they belonged together and the friends with benefits thing wouldn't stay that way for long. Sure, there were complications — mostly in the fo

Laura Ward gets better with each book.

Daisy is Dean's younger sister. At school she is being bullied by two of her former best friends. She has the curves of an older woman and they use that to ostracize and demean her. The bullying is affecting her. She is shy, timid, and closed off from all. The only person outside her family that she considers a friend is Jon, one of Dean's best friends. Also she has a crush on him and has since she discovered boys.

Jon is back home, graduated college, takin
This is another book from within a series but I hadn’t read the earlier books and didn’t feel like I’d missed anything at all. I liked this one but didn’t love it. It’s a solid second chance romance but it didn’t blow me away. I love that the heroine is curvy and not traditionally beautiful. I love that she eats and isn’t shy about her love of food. I love that the story reminds us that we all have our own beauty, regardless of how it fits with society’s definition of beauty. My primary issue wi ...more

This was my first Laura Ward book. Where have I been? I’m kicking myself for not having read the first two books in this series. But I did love Jon and Daisy’s story. I love New Adult novels. I like the college aged first love stories. What attracted me to this book was the forbidden love and the fact that it was Jon’s best friend’s sister. Stories like this tend to have more drama and tension to them and Someday Soon did not disappoint. There was a lot of tension, secrets and drama wrapped up i ...more

Daisy has been in love woth Jon all her life. But he is her brother's best friend. And he is older than her.
They are good friends and although she dreams about being with him, she thinks she is not pretty or good enough. But Jon sees her. She is not just a friend for him.
They start to spend more and more time together and they make a deal. If she helps him to study in order to go into law school, he will help her to get more

Sometimes, a book makes you feel so much, you can't put it into words. They're there, on the tip of your tongue, and flowing through your brain, but you can't seem to get them down on paper. That's how Someday Soon was for me. I have so much that I want to tell you about this incredible, moving, breathtaking, gorgeous love story. I have pages and pages of highlights, notes, and bookmarks, but I can't seem to find the words to do it justice.

I am not a huge fan of second chance romances but this was alright. Better than I was anticipating which is refreshing. Usually it is the other way around where I am looking forward to a book and then am disappointed after reading it. I am so happy that did not happen with this book.
Jon and Daisy are great together. Jon comes from an abusive and broken home where he escapes to Daisy's family's house. No one knows Jon better than Daisy. When

This is book three in the Not Yet series by Laura Ward and the third book I have been sucked into. Ever time I read one of these books I am unsure how she can top the last one but she is just an overall great writer and it shows in every book. This one is more of a forbidden romance as far as Jon is falling for his best friend little sister.

Daisy has always had a secret crush on Jon but knows that he is off limits. She has poured herself into cooking as it is her first love.

It took me forever to get around to reading this book and I am sad that I waited so long.

This was a really great read. I loved the characters, the story line, all of it. I loved seeing the growth that both Daisy and Jon went through and how they overcame so many things.

I really enjoyed this one. This was a great friends to lovers/brothers best friend type read. It was great to see how Daisy grew and was able to stand up to her family and bullies at the end.

Really good read. Now, I need to go back and read Dean's story.

Another great book in the Not Yet series. Daisy is from a big, loving family but she has self-esteem issues. Jon is grew up with a single mom in a disfunctional home. He relied on his best friend Dean's family for a sense of love and belonging. Daisy and Jon start out as friends. Daisy confides in Jon about the mean girls at school and he tries to help her see herself as she truly is. However their feelings develop into more than friendship. The problem?

Someday Soon
tells the story of Daisy and Jon. Daisy’s just the ‘fat cow’ at school and doesn’t believe that any guy will think she’s beautiful until her brother’s best friend, the man she’s been in love with for such a long time, tells her she’s beautiful and worthy…

Someday Soon was such a cute and swoony book. I couldn’t stop reading Someday Soon, and that

I absolutely adored this story! I am a sucker for a brother’s best friend/little sister story and this one was amazing!

“I couldn’t look at her. If I did, I’d want to kiss her and make her mine. God, how I wanted to make her mine. But I couldn’t do that. Someday, maybe. But not today.”

Daisy is the black sheep of the family. She doesn’t look the same and she wants out of the small town she grew up in. But always one to please her family, she’s afraid to speak up and let her dreams be known.

It was enjoyable.....however I had a slight (I won't call it problem) wobble about a certain storyline!
Jon's mum is looking for love and has a lot of casual relationship's that never last and always start very quickly (sex on first meeting)
Jon hates this and to make sure he never turns into his mum......he only has one night stands???
What?? I was very confused, isn't this kinda what he hates about his mother?

Anyway it was only a small blip with the story, which was a solid read from Laura ward!

Daisy Goldsmith has been bullied at school for as long as she can remember by her former best friends. All she wants to do is leave town and attend culinary school but her parents don't seem to want her to go.

Jon Roberts is best friends with Daisy's older brother Dean. In the past Jon is known for getting around and never dating one girl but he knows he has feelings for Daisy but can not act on them.

When Daisy turns 18 she asks Jon to kiss her as her birthday present and he does, even though he

This is the first Laura Ward book I've read and I really liked it. Her writing flows very well and the characters are very well developed. While this book is the third in a series of stand-alones with interconnected characters, I didn't feel like I was jumping into something I didn't understand.

This is the third book in the series, but it can be read as a stand alone book. It does mention some of the characters from the previous books, but you can jump right in here and understand everything that is going on. The author writes a story that the readers immediately become immersed in the world of Daisy Goldsmith and her crazy family. It becomes an instant family to the reader and one in which t

This is one of the most perfect romance novels I've read lately. I loved everything about it. I wouldn't change a thing. The pace of the story was spot on. Nothing was rushed. It was a slow build told in such a wonderful way.

Daisy comes from a big family. She is the one girl that is shaped differently. From her sisters and her fellow classmates. She is not fat by any means, just more curvy than the other girls. Which makes her feel too different and inadequate. One thing that has been a constan

Lovely book full of love, want and heartache. Daisy wants to go to New York and study at Culinary school. Jon wants to be a lawyer.

When Daisy graduates from high school, she has a year to persuade her parents that she is mature enough to leave home and go to New York. Jon is old family friend and a little older than Daisy.

I was hooked on this book from the very beginning. I went into this book thinking Laura Ward was a new to me author until about 10% in I realized I read about the family in this series in a short story in the F'ing Awkward Holidays Anthology. I was even more excited to be reading this book after the little taste of Daisy and Jon I got before.

You could feel the pull between Daisy and Jon from the very start. Even when they claimed to only be friends and denied their feelings. I was rooting for t
