As I child, I believed in true love and fairytales. I convinced myself that there was one special man out there, made just for me. All I had to do was wait, and one day he would appear. Then I grew up and discovered the ugly truth.

Disney movies were full of crap.

Relationships took work. People made mistakes. And sometimes, you didn’t see what was standing right in front o

Another great second chance, childhood friends to lovers story in the Girl Talk series Coming to the realization that the love of your life had always been right there in front is hard when that someone has seemingly moved on. Deacon Lockhart has loved Fiona Prentice all his life, but with the sting of rejection he’s determined to let her go. Fiona Prentice has realized her mistake. My heart broke right from the start for her. What I love about the Girl Talk series is that it is a group of women ...more

"Around the world and back again" "To Jupiter and back again"

I dont know where to start. Since the first time I read a book by Jessica Prince, I loved her writing. I loved how she can join the funny and the angst in the right amount and make something blissfully amazing to read. And since then, I couldn't find a single page I didn't love.

And that happened again with Charming Fiona. I laughed out loud, I swooned, I was mad, I was in pain, I felt bittersweet, I felt overwhelmed, I felt fullfilled,

Charming Fiona is part of the Girl Talk Series and was just as awesome as all the other books!
I've to say that Fiona & Deacon are now one of my favourite couples too!

I love how Jessica Prince writes; she’s got fantastic comedic timing, well developed characters and sexy scenes that leave my kindle smoking. Charming Fiona is a second chance love story that is funny, heartwarming and filled with angst, but there is substance and depth behind what holds these two back. Deacon…he is the most perfectly written alpha male—sexy, bossy with just the right amount charm. And Nana rocks.

What another fantastic 2nd chance, childhood friends to lovers story in the Girl Talk series . Fiona & Deacon are now one of my favorite couples coming out of this series. When I first read/met Fiona way back in the beginning of this series, I didn’t think I would like her but you know what, she totally is awesome and cooler than I thought. She has hidden depths and feels way too deeply but hides her feelings for a certain someone {hint hint}. Jessica Prince nailed this couple down totally and s ...more

Charming Fiona was exactly the book I wanted it be. Sweet, funny, sassy, angsty all rolled into one, Jessica Prince once again makes me fall in love with her characters.

You could really fit this book into a number of different tropes. Friends to lovers, Second Chance, Unrequited Love just to mention a few.

Fiona and Deacon, I loved that they were best friends and grew up together. This book does take us into the past at times and just being able to go through their history made my heart squeal

I feel like I’ve been waiting for Deacon and Fiona’s second chance romance FOREVER!! Let me tell you, Jessica Prince nailed it and it was so worth the wait! Deacon and Fiona are most definitely my favorite couple from the bunch (this book can be read as a standalone but you will definitely enjoy the entire series)!

Deacon has loved Fiona for years, ever since they were kids. However, things changed when Deacon’s older brother stepped into the picture and began dating Fiona. Since then, things jus

LOVED Deacon and Fiona's story. I feel like I waited forever for them. I love me some Deacon.

I feel like I have patiently waited for Deacon FOREVER. And by patiently I mean...tearing my hair out and re-reading all the other couples to get any glimpse of him and his brooding unrequited love sick self. I just loved him. And Fiona is one of those characters that is brought in to make you pay attention. A jealous factor that you love to hate and hate to love. Then Ms. Prince flipped the

I have been waiting on this book since the first time we met Fiona’s character in Lola’s book. If you’ve read the other girl talk books, you know Fiona is Grayson’s ex and she has history with Deacon as well. In this book you get all the history between Deacon, Fiona, and Greyson. You understand why Grayson and Deacon don’t have a great relationship and you get to see them fix it.. you also get to see two people who have loved each other for years get the HEA they deserve. I loved the dynamic be ...more

This book lived up to the rest of the books in the series! I loved it as much as i loved the others. Fiona and Deacon were so cute of a couple along with Deacon's take control attitude. I loved seeing flashbacks of their younger years, it was nive seeing those times. Seeing and hearing from the other girls and their respected spouses. Never a dull moment with all of them. ❤❤ ...more

Such an amazing book!

Full of great humor as well as sexy scenes that will
totally make your day.

We got a lot of girl action with the other girls as well and you are going to LOVE IT!

Also, there's Deacon. Deacon is hot. Deacon is amazing. Deacon is PERFECT. You cannot not love this guy!

After all - 4.5 stara from me! You can read it as a standalone, but it will make your experience easier to read the previous books.

I have been waiting for Deacon and Fiona's story in this Girl Talk series, and Jessica Prince did NOT disappoint!!! Charming Fiona picks up during the Thanksgiving scene that ends Enticing Daphne. Deacon has been in love with his childhood best friend, Fiona, his entire life (even when she was dating his brother), and has dated his way through most of Seattle trying to get over her. Fiona lost Deacon as her best friend back when she began dating his brother, Grayson, and then again about a year ...more

Annnnd, she does it again! I'll say this every review for JP books....She can't write a bad book. I've yet to read one from her.

This installment of the Girl Talk series was about Fiona and Deacon. They were lifelong best friends. Deacon had been in love with her for as long as he could remember, but they remained friends. He didn't speak up soon enough, and Fiona ended up with Deacon's older brother Grayson. After that, Deacon kind of cut both of them out of his life.

Fiona Prentice is completely thrown for a loop when her childhood best friend makes a move on her. Now, the one man who she has always wanted in her life wants nothing to do with her... and the only one to blame is herself...

Deacon Lockhart kept his feelings for Fiona quiet, until she was single and finally back in his life again. Making a move on her was his last ditch effort to get her to see him as something more... and she didn't return his feelings. Now, he's ready to move on and put his in

Sexy, funny, dirty, and just that little bit of angst-oh and don't forget charming (yes I went there lol).  This book had it all.   We got the dirt on two characters I've grown to love as well as visits from everyone who's already won our hearts.  This book won me over easily. 

Fiona is such a great character.  She started in this series as someone you hated but, quickly my opinion of her was turned around.  She was funny, fierce, loyal, hardworking, and just all around the perfect kind

I cannot believe that this series is over. I am not ready for there to no longer be upcoming books about Fiona, Lola, Daphne, and Sophia. I have laughed, snortled, felt my heart break, and fell in love with these ladies and their amazing men.

This book did not have the crazy over the top antics that the first three standalones did in this series. Yet, it worked because we had two best friends get a second chance at love. The flashbacks were a nice bonus as it allowed us to see Fiona and

Jessica Prince brings us back to the world of "Girl Talk" for one last adventure. This was the perfect book to end this series and it makes me sad to say goodbye to these ladies. Jessica Prince has been my go to author for a few years now and I can't remember a single time where I didn't fall in love with her imaginary world.

In this book we meet Deacon and Fiona. These two have known each other since childhood and there love story really resonated with me. I absolutely love childhood friends to

What do I do when I suffer from a bout of insomnia? I read an entire book written by Jessica. But do you know what happened? I couldn’t get to sleep until I was done reading the entire book. This 5 star story had me reading it in one sitting.

This is about Deacon and Fiona who have been best friends to not being anything. Then they got a second chance to be together and admit their feelings. It’s how they get there that made it quite interesting.

This is was such an amazing story, one that I co

Have you ever read a series by a single author featuring different branches of different “families”? That even though each can be read as a stand-alone, they add another delicious layer to the family tree (Hey wait, trees don’t have layers…) to the multilayered cake called life? A series where you get little glances of future characters and you think “hmmm, he sounds intriguing – I will have to remember him”? Well Jessica Prince writes JUST LIKE THAT.

Charming Fiona is book four in the girl talk standalone series. This is the story of Fiona and Deacon. I was intrigued by Deacon's black sheep of the family character since Seducing Lola and was really looking forward to his story after the glimpses in Enticing Daphne. If you love a strong determined alpha male who has been in love with his childhood best friend for years than Deacon is your man.

Is it bad that I feel like I'm a losing friends now that this series is over?! I'm going to miss the Girl Talk ladies and the alpha men who put up with their shenanigans!
Now I don't know about anyone else but I didn't like Fiona at the beginning of the series when we meet her. She just rubs me the wrong way. However in this novel we get to see a different side of her altogether. She is more down to earth and comes to her sense with Deacon.

I have loved this series! The fun filled friendship of the ladies and the swoony men they fell for.
I was excited for Fionnas book. She started as "the ex" but soon became one of the girls.
A sweet, funny childhood best friends to lovers story.
Deacon always loved her but misunderstandings and him hiding his feelings kept him on the sidelines. He was always the one for Fiona she just had to get out of her head and follow her heart.
Once together they were HOT!! An friendship bloomed to love.

Oh how much I love the Girl Talk series and everything Jessica Prince has brought with her words. Fiona's and Deacon's story was IT for me! I was on a huge emotional binge with this book! Excited and full of angst about how these two would come together again. They loved each other a long time ago and now in present time, Fiona is letting her fears come between what love was and what love is. Deacon tries his hardest to get through those walls.

Fiona grew up with her best friend Deacon Lockhart but she found out too late that her best friend had been in love with her but she didn't have the courage to be honest with him and lost him to another woman. I cannot lose my best friend for the third time so I will do anything to keep him in my life but when we crash together, it is nothing like I ever expected. Life is messy and confusing in the best of times but letting go of
