Last night I got married.

But, I woke up with a ring on my finger, a marriage certificate, and a sneaking suspicion I had a wild wedding ni

I actually nabbed this one up thinking it was going to be a novella, so imagine my surprise when it turned out to be a full-length book. Despite that, I decided to give it a go and BOY am I glad I did because this turned out to be one of the most enjoyable books I have read in a long while.


It was freaking HILARIOUS. It had the perfect amount of angst. It had two fantastic main characters (even if Titan was a HUGE bipolar a$$ sometimes). It had a great cast of secondary characters. There was a b
5 ‘Big Daddy’ ⭐ omg I LOVED this book from the first to last page. It was hilarious with just the right amount of angst. I don’t have words for how much I loved both Titan/Big Daddy and Faith/wife. That doesn’t happen often for me, when I love both equally. The secondary characters added so much to this story. I’ve read most of this author’s Savage Brother’s MC series and loved it but I remember those being more full of drama and angst without the comedic relief. I have to go back and read the r ...more

Big Daddy ===> Yuck!

Each time the expression "big daddy" appears I roll my eyes.

Titan Marsh… pro football player, a hell of a good time in bed, and … my husband.

This was so good. I couldn't stop reading until I finished. It was funny, sexy and entertaining. I loved both Faith and Titan. They were a perfect match for each other.
I loved to meet Lucas family, the crayon gang, again. Where that family, there will be craziness involved. And I can't wait to hear more from them.
This book is absolutely a mustread.

"If the stupid fits wear it!"

It wasn't until I started reading Taking It Slow that I realized it was part of a series that I'd already started. That just made it even better as I got to catch up with some favorite characters, especially Aunt Ida Sue and her cow, Hamburger. I really dig her kind of crazy, she's very entertaining. Actually, the whole Lucas family has the crazy gene and I laughed my way through the story, start to finish.

As I got further into the story I realized that I'd already

5 Stars to Taking It Slow (Doing Bad Things Book 3) by Jordan Marie.
This book was hysterical! Loved it!

This is one of the funniest books I've read this year so far. I can say with honesty that I loved everything about this book. Both characters were fun and likable. I felt from the beginning they were perfect for each other. Of course there were times that both Titan and Faith got on my nerves because neither could see what was right in front of them.

Their banter was hysterical. I loved them to

Sometimes, I’ll start a book on a whim without reading many, if any reviews - and I love it.

It was not the case with this book.

Don’t get me wrong, it started out great. Both MC where something different, the heroine especially, and I was quite enjoying it for a little while there.

But then, somewhere halfway through, the book was completely ruined for me. Within just a few pages, I instantly hated both main characters (although it had already started with the hero since he is a pathetic desperat

What happens in Vegas doesn't always stay there. Sometimes it takes off running.

Jordan Marie earned a spot as one of my favorite authors because of her amazing storytelling abilities in her gritty, gripping, emotional MC romances. She has written several books that have become all-time, top favorite books with stories that have moved me and will stay with me forever. When she announced that she was branching out into romantic comedies, I was very excited. If she could make that big an

Waking up in a luxurious Suite in Vegas with a wedding band encasing her ring finger and a steaming hot naked God next to her is that little something that pushed Faith to run and run FAST... nothing new in her story book... she spent her whole life running because she never felt like she belonged anywhere. Of course, being a "Lucas" only goes to prove that she is her own special brand of crazy and when her "husband" Titan

Alright now..

Let's start with..


I really really,from page one, was like.. these two need each other!!!

Faith needs an anchor.
Titan..okay that name...Gahh..
Titan needs his legit happiness..

Not some string along wife that comes with a business deal and is totally obnoxious.

And also that he isn't related to her anyway.. that is.. they are in the talks of getting married and thankfully not even engaged..

And then fate intervenes and I was like YESSA GAAWWDD! WOOT WOOT!

This was a crazy entertaining read! I really liked Faith and Titan. I finished this book really quick because I kept reading and reading. I didn't know where this book would take me and that was half the fun. Now I want to go back and read the first two books in this series.

Jordan Marie has quickly become a favorite author of mine and has easily landed herself in my top ten of all time. There are some authors who just have that spark and she matter who she writes with or what she's writing, it's pretty fucking amazing and magical.

Taking It Slow is the third book in the Doing Bad Things series.... and if a guy like Titan is bad then y'all I definitely do NOT want to be right. Sexy. Sweet. Fun. Complicated. Hilarious. Marie delivers the absolute bes

Taking It Slow is a cute and sassy story that gives you a Vegas Wedding and a whole lot of chasing. We get insta-love, the fight against it and the emotions that go with it. I'm used to reading novella's from this author so it was my first full length that I've read from her work.

Titan & Faith met in Vegas at a wedding, and after a tequila filled night, Faith wakes up married to him. She panics, and gets in her car leaving him asleep. When Titan wakes up, he thinks he just took a hot blonde to bed, but as the nights events start to resurface, and seeing the marriage certificate, he is flipping out, especially since she left without a word.

I haven't read the first two books in this series. As it turns out you don't really have to, these can be read as standalones.
We have Faith & Titan who drunkenly tie the knot in Vegas, as you do. Faith leaves before Titan wakes. Titan wakes & everything comes back to him so he's slightly put out to be chasing his 'wife' down for a divorce. As it turns out that he's 'engaged' to marry for business reasons.

Can you hear that people, that is the standing ovation that Jordan Marie is getting for one of the best rom coms I have read. Taking It Slow does not accurately describe how long it will take for Titan and Faith’s story to bring a smile to your face and have the laughter bubbling out of you. This is one of those books that no matter how bad your mood is it will have your soul shining so bright they will see it from the moon.

Oh my god, I loved this book. I love this family. I love this storyline.

Faith and Titan have one wild night, which in the first chapter you can figure out all on your own. Jordan is not afraid to describe in detail what these two do :) But when Faith figures out that they are married, she hits the bricks. There is no way she is going to stay around and be told she isn't wanted.

Titan wakes up and finds he is married but no wife can be found. But when he does find her, HAHA now the fun begins. Not

Taking It Slow by Jordan Marie was so good. It is a mix of sexy, steamy, flat out funny, and wildly witty. I loved the main characters of Faith and Titan. They complimented each other and played off each other well. I've been waiting for this book to come out since In Too Deep came out. Titan and Faith's love story was definitely unique but hey I love unique and unconventional love stories.

OH MY HOLY "HAMBURGER"!!!! (And if you've read Jordan Marie's Lucas Brothers series, you'll know that reference.) I laughed so hard I cried all through this book!!! Faith is most assuredly a Lucas, through and through!!! I adored her, and MOST of the time Titan was absolutely swoon-worthy (but considering her was dealing with that special kind of Lucas crazy, he can be forgiven for when he wasn't).

I became a fan of Jordan Marie because of her MC Romances, but this author has one sassy brain and

4 entertaining stars! This was a funny, yet sexy read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Titan and Faith had some amazing chemistry that made this book so easy to read. The pacing was on point and I have to say, many of my favorite parts had Faith's aunt Ida Sue in them! Another great read by this author that I'd definitely recommend.

OMG this book was so unbelievably good that once you start you will not be able to put it down. Its laugh out loud funny with tears leaking from your eyes and not all of it is due to the main characters. Titan is a Alpha that could rev any woman's engine and Faith just so happen to be the recipient. They say what happens in Vegas stays there too bad Faith never got the memo.
