This is my second time reading Tara Brown, and I knew after just a few pages that she was going to keep me there, flipping the pages like a madwoman.
In He Loves You Not, we are back to the life of the rich and privileged in the Serendipity series. Lacey, our heroine, is considered one of them but she's far from that. It is in this circle where she meets Jordan, he claims not to be like the rest of them, but Lacey has been ...more
"He loves you not" was a fun read!! It was a little bit long for me and it was like watching an episode of "Gossip Girl". Overall it was well written and I really laughed in some parts!! I really enjoyed it !! ...more

Jordan Somersby is the archetypal poor little rich boy, bullied by his father into 'dating' the daughter o ...more
Let me start off with saying this was my first book by Tara Brown and I really enjoyed her writing and most of her characters. Jordan, and Monty even more so, were a dream and if there is a Monty book I will read it because he is boyfriend goals, and boy did I admire his patience to put up with Marcia.
Anywho, ‘He Loves You Not’ was very Gossip Girl feel, only with more heart than drama and scandal. It depicted the struggle of not only a middle class girl working her way to ...more
After finished reading this book, it felt like I'd just watched a whole season of Gossip Girl. The characters are the rich and famous people from the Upper East Side plus a middle-class family from Brooklyn... it's automatic.
The story is about Lacey Winters, she lives in Brooklyn, her friends are next level rich, but she’s not. And even though she likes them, she knows their lives has always been different.
Before her ...more
***ARC received in exchange of an honest opinion***
That I’m a fan of Tara Brown there is no doubt, but I have to say I LOVE what she’s doing with the Serendipity series!
They’re different than your usual NA books, they have a really good story and plotline behind the romance, they’re well written and funny as hell.
Also, they are VERY ACTUAL and, because of that, it’s so easy to relate to the story and connect with the characters. They deal with subjects that are more than trendy, they’r ...more
This story was great!
It was far from that light fluffy read I expected when starting on the book. The buildup was actually quite nice and felt much more realistic than I'm used to.
It's one of those slow burn relationship, that have always been a favorite of mine, and something that sure is a rare thing in NA nowadays.
Both main characters were lovely flawed and yet very sympathetic. Same with the oth ...more
I think Lacey’s character is super relata ...more
This is sooo much better than the first book in this series and I loved that one too.
Lacey born in a middle class family but attends an elite school and is pretty much accepted by those in her circle. I was actually happy about this because there are so many stories about awful, rich, mean girls. Lacey’s family has a tragedy happen and she needs to come into money fast. Not wanting to ask her fr ...more
I enjoyed the bits of comedy laced in the novel.
On the first night home from college Jordan meets his Cinderella but she doesn’t fit into his families plans. Jordan would do anything not to be the pawn in his families business an ...more
I think the blurb on the book should have mentioned they were in college. I think my issue with this book was mostly I couldn't get into the age of the characters.
Probably a good book for others to read though.
This is my first book by this author. ...more
When Lacey goes with her best friend Marcia on a yacht, she never thought she would run into a hot and sexy Jordan. While she knows she has seen him somewhere, ...more
Tara Brown once again dives into the world of the rich and privileged in the second of the Serendipity series. He Loves You Not packs more of an emotional edge by focusing on a young woman who rises above adversity while rubbing shoulders with people that view her as 'other' because she's not from an influential family.
Lacey loses her tuition funds to her brother's unexpected medical expenses. Raised to be independent, she devises a way to get the money she needs. H ...more
What a delicious morsel of a book. I simply devoured this book in one sitting.
Lacey is not a rich girl even though her best friends are from the upper crust. She fits in fine with that group and feels as though she belongs. After a pretty heinous break up from a rich guy, Lacey swears off dating anyone from that circle.
Jordan feels like a fraud and an outsider. He hates his upbringing and the responsibility that comes wit ...more
Serendipity Series #2
#NetGalley #HeLovesYouNot #NA #Romance #Standalone
Can be read as a standalone. I was received a copy from Skyscape via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I've read from this Author before.
Lacey doesn't have wealthy parents or lifestyle like her best friend Marcia. She's happy with having one night stands except with notorious, wealthy womanisers. Being burned by an ex. But it doesn't bother her. She's hard workin ...more
But I'll rate it anyway. Not because I want the average rating to drop or because I want my percentage on NetGalley to get higher but because I think you deserve to know why this book just didn't work out for me.
It's really important for me to enjoy the book, to read because the writing or the story got me hooked. And it needs to happen soon in the story, not too soon of course but not too late too. Because I really don't like to wait for the story to get i ...more

Tara Brown does a great job of writing from both perspectives and made me fall in love with not only her main characters but her side characters. I was ...more
Needless to say, mine saved me. After it got me into trouble first, that is. That's the problem with a vivid imagination, all the lies you tell.
According to my age, I am meant to be a responsible adult, but it isn't going well at all. I would still head off to ...more
