But when her brother's best friend, the man who's always secretly held her h ...more
"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."

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 form ...more

OFF THE CHARTS!
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 have been waiting for ...more

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 ...more
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 ...more

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.
“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.
She has ...more
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! ...more

When Daisy turns 18 she asks Jon to kiss her as her birthday present and he does, even though he ...more
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.
Daisy Goldsmith is this wonderful 17 year old with a heart of gold. She comes from a very supportive family with 4 other brothers and sisters that ...more
Daisy has a passion for cooking. She wants to be able to go to culinary school, there’s one downside though. Her parents don’t want her to go because they think that she’s to young. So, in trying to convince her parents that she I ready to go she stays ho ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
I was so excited to read this one. I really liked the first two books of this series and I had so many high expectations to "Someday Soon". And the pretty, cute cover just made me want to read it even more.
We can see Laura Ward essence here. There was a good message behind the story, there were so many good characters (I wish we have more books about Deans siblings, like Damien for example), we received more than just the romance and other elements that make her books so good.
The thing about th...more
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 ...more
