She is the one. I knew it then, and I know it now.

It has been ten years since I first laid eyes on her, ten years since I’ve held her, ten years since I’ve been inside of her . . . and ten years since I broke her heart.

Now she’s back. And when I look into the eyes of my first and only love, I

Having read countless 2nd chance romances & 99% of time came out always disappointed, I went into this one cautiously & hopeful because the childhood/first love trope is my own go-to. So for the first 30-35% I was sure that this would be a winner, but as always these days, the Author had to go and use the old cliché & tiresome trope (more on that later) and ruin it for me!

This review will contain some MAJOR SPOILERS, so for anyone interested in reading it, please stop now

It’s Jack Prescott’s time to get his happily ever after and he’s holding nothing back when it comes to the woman he let get away. 𝐒𝐭𝐢𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐝, Joanne Schwehm’s latest SWOONY standalone romance, brings us back to the amazing family that I've come to absolutely ADORE!

Jack and April have quite the history together, and Jack is on a mission to claim the woman he has loved from the very start. April isn’t going to let him back in her heart so easily. There are things he doesn’t know

This series is so very near and dear to my heart. Mainly, because I was there every step of the way, reading every wonderful word Joanne Schwehm wrote down, unfolding every remarkable page until Jack's story was complete. Like his brothers and sister, before him, I was hooked at the very start. I can't recommend this book, this series, enough. Stiffed is a heartwarming story between childhood sweethearts who have a second chance at happiness. Whether they achieve it or not is part of the fantast ...more

With every Prescott Sibling you can’t help fall a little more for this fantastic family. We have loved and met Drake, Dane & Gretchen and how each of them have found their other halves but now we have Jack Prescott and his story starts from when he is seven years old. When Jack meets April they are just kids but they are each other’s firsts. Friends, boyfriend & girlfriend even lovers but life takes different roads but sometimes that road leads back to where it all started.

H and h met when they were 7 years old, eventually they started dating. When they turned 18, h’s father had to move to Idaho for professional reasons. H breaks up with h, since they would not be together in Washington anymore. Here, I want to ask the author, had her characters not planned on going to college? I mean, does it matter if the family was relocating? I’m sure H and h had discussed college plans. Anyway, I suppose then maybe there would be no story.
Ok, so now 10 years later, H bu

I’m new to the Prescott’s but after reading Stiffed by Joanne Schwehm, I am a fan. I want to go back and start at the beginning. Which, is good in a way, because I get to see more of Jack. To see how he was before April came back into his life.
This is a very addicting story, Jack is a man on a mission to win back the love of his life. He’ll literally lay down his life for her and not blink an eye.
Jack and April have a long history together, but for as long as they have known each oth

With every word, every page, I fall more in love with the Prescott family. Joanne Schwehms' telling of the life and love of Jack Prescott was a complete and utter surprise. Although featured in her other Prescott stories he was guarded emotionally. You knew there was something hidden down deep but when she opened him up in his story, I fell hard for him. I have to say for me, he gave older brother Drake a run for the money in the book boyfriend category. Jack and April met as children and it loo ...more

Stiffed had a couple of my go-to genres:

Friends to lovers and Second Chance...oh wait and one HOT ALPHA man!!!!

First, Chapter 1 had me hooked!!!! I just loved how Ms. Schwehm grabbed my attention and emotions right from page one.

Stiffed is all about Jack and April....so let me begin...

DNF... sorry not a fan of anyone using their money and power to bulldoze his way thru someone’s life. I don’t care how much history they have. Too much time has passed and he fucked up. That’s not how you win the love of your life back. Weak woman call that persistence and romantic, strong women call that bullying and coercion. Not being given a choice is not romantic. Sorry not sorry.

If that above doesn't get you to read this book just so you can find out what I'm talking about, let me tell you all the reasons you MUST read Stiffed by Joanne Schwehm....

Jack and April truly are the ultimate second chance that is meant to be. When this book starts we get their first meeting and I was already swooning, he was so caught up in this sweet little girl with pigtails that moved next door. When we next see Jack it's ten years after

Stiffed is one of those books that grips your heart and squeezes real tight. It is sweet, sexy, and intense with a whole lot of love. The story line is so very compelling and meaningful. It's a cross between childhood sweethearts and a second chance romance. Joanne did a really nice job of bringing Jack and April's story full circle. It was not drawn out, and Stiffed flowed the way it was meant to. Stiffed is about, staying true to your heart even though circumstances get in the way. It is about ...more

STIFFED is the 4th book in the Prescott Series by author Joanne Schwehm. This is a beautiful , emotional and charming 2nd chance romance that enticed my heart from the moment the prologue started.
Jack fell in love with April the day she moved in next door when they were 7. From that moment on, they were inseparable until Jack broke up with April when they were 18. That was THE biggest mistake Jack ever made. Fast forward 10 on and Jack is this super millionaire while April has come back to

I love this series and this new installment does not disappoint.

Sometimes when we're young we make decisions that we live to regret a few years down the line, this was the case with Jack Prescott. He let go of the woman he loved and now that she's back in his life, he'll do anything to show her, not only that he loves her dearly, but the future they can have. April Johnson has always know that Jack was the love of her life, but circumstances in life may prevent them for having their

J+A......A+J. Firsts and Lasts. Swoon. I read this as an arc and can’t believe I was lucky enough to get my hands on Jack and April’s story before the release date. This is my honest opinion of the book and exactly what I would have written if I had purchased it.
Jack and April met when she moved in to the house next door. She also moved into his heart and took up permanent residence there. My favorite scene was when 7 year old Jack knocked on his neighbor’s door. He was hoping they had kids - s

She is the one. I knew it then, and I know it now.

It has been ten years since I first laid eyes on her, ten years since I’ve held her, ten years since I’ve been inside of her . . . and ten years since I broke her heart.

Now she’s back. And when I look into the eyes of my first and only love, I know she is the one for me. She is still the most beautiful woman, and she can still make my body come alive with just a glance.

If I feel this way, she must too . . . rig

I so love the Prescott family, every brother is wonderful, sexy, caring and Gretchen ( the baby sister) is great fun. But this is Jacks story, and what a brilliant story it is. Jack is sexy, assertive, successful, rich, charming, romantic but he is missing something or rather someone in his life. When jack was seven he met ( without knowing) the love of his life, her name was April. They were inseparable for years and they became childhood sweethearts. However life got in the way and they went t ...more

So this was my first "Prescott Family" book and lord I'm going to have to go back and read the other three.  And not because I felt like I missed anything or was lost but because this book was so freakin awesome I need more of The Prescott's!!! Especially those men,and the man to win the woman Prescott has got to be worthy!! So yeah I'll definitely be picking up those books. This was one of the best second chance love stories I've ever read. It had the perfect blend of angst, romance, suspense a ...more

Joanne Schwehm is absolutely a one-click author for me (I always like to disclose upfront because I never want to come off as a "biased" reviewer). I like the way she writes and I have absolutely enjoyed the Prescott Family.

STIFFED is the 4th story in the Prescott Series AND IS ABSOLUTELY MY FAVORITE!!! It can be read as a stand-alone as long as you know that the Prescott Family is everything you would think an "All-American" family is.

This is the perfection of second chance romances. Joanne Schwehm has outdone herself. She has written a truly heartfelt romance.

Can I get a Jack Prescott? Y’all are going to fall in love with him even more than you already do. He’s made lots of appearances in the other books and when we finally get a chance to get into his mind, and see his love for April your heart will be full.

We follow as Jack pounces on a chance to get April back home in Virginia. He has loved her since they were 7 years o

I loved this beautiful story of friendship, love, and redemption! It is a sweet and emotional second chance romance that captured my heart from the very beginning! Jack and April have been best friends since they were kids. That close bond turned into a love that would never die. Unfortunate circumstances tore them apart and Jack didn't handle it well, breaking both their hearts. Now years later, Jack has his second chance to make things right, to prove to April he will neve

Maybe my most favorite Prescott Novel yet. It was warm and funny. Hot and sexy. Sweet and naughty and oh so romantic.
Jack fell in love with April the day she moved in next door when they were 7. He brought brownies and asked her to play in his back yard with him and they've been inseparable ever since until she moved and he broke up with her when they were 18. The biggest mistake Jack ever made.

Well , to say I loved this book wouldn’t do it justice I really am not great at writing reviews but here goes . Joanne has done it again , writing and bringing to life another Prescott who is no doubt a dream come true. He loves his family , he loves his job but the one thing he needs is his childhood best friend and soul mate , April, who he hasn’t seen in 10 years. This is an amazing second chance story. To be so engrossed in Jack and April’s story was so easy, relatable and just a damn good b ...more

So very good! I am now in love with two Jack’s. Well actually all of the Prescott’s. I love stories that start out in the characters childhood or youth and then ages the characters through the books’ storylines. This story has moments of hardache and love. The kind that girls and women dream of. I started reading Stiffed and thought I would just read a few chapters then go to bed. Didn’t happen. Each chapter drew me into the next. This is a must read if you like strong characters that love with ...more

Eeeekkkk!!! I’ve waited so long for Jack’s book and it was everything!!!

Jack and April meet when they are kids. They started out as friends and ended up being teenagers in love. Unfortunately they get split up and ultimately live their own lives before reuniting. The chemistry between the two leaps off the pages!!! Jack is such a great and romantic guy! April is a head strong woman with a heart of gold. The banter between them is easy going and I found myself literally laughing out loud!

What an awesome story this was! Jack and April had a young love. Now, it's time to see if they get a second chance. The characters are very likable. We met Jack in the other Prescott books. Now, if you haven't read the other books, you may get a bit confused on the other characters' storylines, but it is ok if you do. That doesn't take away from this storyline. Jack is alpha male, but a patient alpha. He knows what he wants and who he wants and will let nothing stop him, not even April. That is ...more
