    I wish I could bottle the feelings I experience when I'm reading a book by Christina Lauren. First there's anticipation, as I've now read eight of their books, and I just love the way they tell a story. Then there's excitement, as the main characters encounter one another and begin the awkward dance of attraction and emotion, tinged with the reluctance of acknowledging their feelings.

    Excitement gives way to complete emotional immersion, and I find myself rooting for the characters to find their

    Last year I was excited to read The Un-honeymooners and enjoy their hilarious take on weddings and the guys you love to hate.

    Twice in a Blue Moon is different. A different style of writing. A different type of story than what we traditionally see from this team. This is not the rom-com we tend to see from them. But they still managed to get to my heart.

    This is the story of second chance love. A story of your first real love and the feelings that ne

    When I first discovered Christina Lauren, I was amazed to learn that they were actually a writing duo - there is no part of their books that feels disjointed or written by multiple minds! The more I devoured their backlist, I continued to be impressed with each of their contemporary romances and even more so, the rate that they churn out these novels without sacrificing quality.

    Enter Twice in a Blue Moon, the second novel this duo will be releasing in 2019 and in my humble opinion, their very b
    I have read a few books by Christina Lauren now, and loved them!! So I was very excited to see this one on netgalley. I love a second chance romance. This one is about Tate, who is on a trip with her grandmother in London for her 18th birthday. They become friends with Sam and his grandfather, Vermont farmers, who are also on a vacation!

    Tate and Sam are smitten right from the stsrt! They feel so connected! Tate tells her secrets to Sam but then is crushed, finding out she was betrayed by him. T

    This book’s synopsis is crystal clear, so you know we’re facing a second-chance type of romance.
    They meet when she was eighteen, during a vacation in London with their grandparents. She’s the daughter of a big, famous Hollywood, but has been living a sheltered type of life, away from the public. Back to their time in London, they fall easily in love and she trusts him enough to reveal all her secrets and also gift him her virginity, only to realize he sold her story to the tablo

    I adored Tate and Sam. The chapters from the past of them falling in love were so real and heartfelt. I was so upset when the betrayal happened: thinking there must be some good explanation. Flash forward to "now" and Tate and Sam are still feeling the effects of it. I loved how the story played out and I LOVE these two characters. I was sad when I got to the end because I wanted to read about their whole life together.

    I decided I'll make it my mission to read whatever these two wonderful ladies will offer us from now on.
    Gifted authors Christina Lauren craft an emotional, heartfelt love story.

    When eighteen year old Tate Jones goes on a two week vacation to London with her very strict grandmother, she never imagined that the unexpected intrusion of two Vermont farmers would be pivotal in her life.

    During the day, Sam and his grandfather Luther join the women in their London expedition. During the night, Sam and Tate share their dreams and secrets under the blanket of the stars in their hotel’s garden. He tells h

    I've let my thoughts on this one marinate overnight but I'm still unsure exactly how I want to rate this. 4? 5? In between? The thing is that I really loved this and finished it in two sittings. Christina and Lauren did a fantastic job of showing these characters at 18 and 21 versus 32 and 35. Sometimes there's a time jump in books and the characters sound the same, but you could really feel the growth here. The situation between Tate and Sam is complicated, and the way that the authors na

    if you know me you know that I have read all of their books and haven’t had a bad word to say about a single one of them. But Love and Other Words was easily my favorite. Until I read this one. I think LAOW might have been unseated.

    The range of what these two can write about and make me love, somehow still surprises me every time I open up one of their new books. Their more erotic stuff (Wild Seasons and Beautiful series), their romantic comedies (Josh and Hazel, Half-Night Stand, etc.), and their more…poignant (?) novels (Love and Other Words and now this one) have all stuck out to me as being some of my favorite romances of all time for dif

    I am SO unimpressed with this book. I love Christina Lauren and I’ll read all the new books they write, but this didn’t even sound like it was their narrative. It was so weird and choppy and hardly a romance at all. I was bored most of the time and definitely didn’t care about 98% of the story. I’m shocked I even got through it. Which is tragic because I really do love their books.

    I had no right to love this book, this story, these characters as much as I did.
    Christina Lauren does it again. Is there anything she can’t write? Full review to come closer to publication date. Just know you want this on your radar.

    I cannot believe I'm giving a Christina Lauren book a 3 star, but alas. Here we are.

    This book was a SOLID 4 star for me all the way until the end. It may have even creeped up to a 5, but it's hard to say.

    I loved almost everything about this book. I was really hesitant about Sam in the beginning and I think knowing he betrays Tate from the synopsis made it kind of hard to like him at first, so I wish that was left out of there, but I soldiered on knowing I would probably like him by the end. He

    I'm a huge fan of second chance romance and this book absolutely has that and I've come to love Christina Lauren books but this one was just okay for me. I struggled to relate or even like Tate or Sam throughout the book. It also seemed that some things just weren't really well explained, there were several times that I went back and reread to see if i had missed something only to discover I had not. With the way the book ended I felt it really could use an epilogue, there was no real resolution ...more
