Melanie: I can’t even believe I didn’t make eye contact with the guy on the elevator. I’d seen him before in my office building and he was totally awesome to look at. From what I could tell by the way his suit clung to him, he had a hot bod, too. Another missed opportunity! I’m so lame. Next time, I’ll see if he wants to do lunch. I wonder if he listens to 80s music when h ...more

Simply Irresistible: A Totally Sweet Love Story, is my very first book by Jennifer L. Allen. This book completely lived up to it’s title. It was totally sweet, and so much more.

Tyler Scott doesn’t have any trouble finding women, it’s staying with them that is his problem. He can finally admit to himself that he self sabotages his relationships. Maybe he just hasn’t found the right woman yet. He works as an executive assistant to the editor of a men’s magazine. Tyler hates his job. His boss is no

What can I say about this story to give it justice? I've read a few Jennifer L Allen's stories and this one blew me away. I think because it was so incredibly relatable. Was there conflict? Yes, but in terms of relationships, it was perfect for the story. They stumble and fall - but in the end, you love their HEA.

Melanie is a heroine many women can relate to in grabbing their 'dream' job. She is responsible - has bills, an apartment to pay for - her job is good, even great. But isn't her dream.

4 Star Review Simply Irresistible A Totally Sweet Love Story by Jennifer L Allen

Jennifer L Allen is a new author to me. This was a sweetly romantic story that left me with a smile on my face.

Melanie and Tyler both work for the same publishing company and when they finally meet after eyeing one another off and lamenting missed opportunities they go on a date. She loves 80’s music and he loves the 90’s. Can they overcome their different taste in music or is it destined to ruin their relationship

I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. This is one of my favorites by this author. It is a sweet, heartwarming romance that starts out as friendship but grows into something so much more. Tyler and Melanie are strong characters that bring this story to life and made me feel as if I was right there with them. I enjoyed watching their relationship grow throughout the story as well as their chemistry. Will they find their HEA and have their dreams come true? I highly recommend this book.

Simply Irresistible: A Totally Sweet Love Story was my first read by Jennifer L. Allen. It is a super sweet, slow burn, contemporary/friends to lovers romance- with humour, emotion, and fun.
Tyler works as an executive assistant for the editor of a men’s magazine. He really hates his job- and his boss is quite a dislikeable person. Tyler has dreams, his ambition is to use this experience to propel him to greater things. He is quite popular with the ladies, but so far has been unlucky in lo

Simply Irresistible is the first time I have read anything from Jennifer L. Allen, but I can promise you that it will not be my last experience doing so. I must start with that gorgeous and eye catching cover that graces the book. I probably didn’t even need to read the blurb to know that I needed to find out what the story behind the beautiful cover was like. I am so glad that I jumped right in and can only say that I wish I had found Jennifer L. Allen sooner. I loved that this book incorporate ...more

The story Simply Irresistible: A Totally Sweet Love Story by Jennifer L. Allen is a new adult/romantic comedy. It is a book that I found when reading I frequently had a smile on my face, laughing out loud, or saying “Aww.” It is a story that had my emotions going up and down the entire time.

Simply Irresistible: A Totally Sweet Love Story by Jennifer L. Allen is a new adult/ romantic comedy. I didn’t know what to expect when I started this book but that didn’t matter because it would have met and exceeded any expectations I had. This book was so enjoyable to read.

Tyler Smith is not someone you would say has trouble with women. The only trouble he has is keeping them but he can admit to himself that’s mostly his fault. Then he sees the green eyed girl on the elevator and he’s intrig

Jennifer L. Allen is a new author to me and after reading Simply Irresistible I’m struggling to understand why she hasn’t crossed my path before now and I will certainly be checking out other works by her. This is a fun sweet romantic story that will certainly leave you smiling.
Tyler and Melanie work for the same publishing company just on different floors, they are constantly bumping into each other but it takes a while for a date to be organised. They may have a lot in common but the music th

Simply Irresistible: A Totally Sweet Love Story by Jennifer L. Allen was a fun 5 star read.

Melanie and Tyler work in the same building, they have seen each other several times on the elevator. Tyler finally works up the nerve to ask Melanie to lunch, where they quickly learn they were decade geeks, Melanie the 80’s and Tyler the 90’s.

They both have taken their current jobs, executive assistants as stepping stones to what they really want to do. Tyler does most of the work for his boss and hates

Simply Irresistible: A Totally Sweet Love story by Jennifer L Allen is exactly what the title says – a totally sweet love story that will pick you up when you feel down and makes you feel good! I have read couple of other books by the writer which I liked very much so I knew when I picked up Simply Irresistible that I would spend couple of fun hours with Melanie and Tyler who are THE couple of the story.
I loved how the writer threw together two nerdy professionals – a 80ies fan and a 90ies fan a

I really loved this book! Two closet decade loving "nerds" meet and it all goes from there.
I will say it read pretty fast and that was a sign of a great book.
I loved how similar yet different these two were and how well they just meshed.
Melanie, loved her. We've all been too nervous in certain situations but going to your boss with something so near and dear to her heart, I loved how that played out.

The only other book I've previously read by Jennifer L. Allen was Say Something -- it was dark, intense, emotional and gritty. On the flip side, Simply Irresistible is simply sweet, funny, lighthearted. Melanie and Tyler are all kinds of flirty fun, and I loved all the ’80s and ’90s references sprinkled throughout this book. They start off with a genuine friendship and build their relationship from there. They are a great support for one another throughout the story, and even though they hit a f ...more

What a fun book! The set up was cute, the interaction between Tyler and Melanie was realistic, and the overall story was well-plotted. I am a huge fan of the 80s and 90s movies, and as I was reading, I felt like I was watching one of those – there was no profound message, or complicated issues or angst. Just a simple romance with two people falling in love and following their dreams. I highly recommend this book for an excellent, light read.

Simply Irresistible: A Totally Sweet Love Story by Jennifer L. Allen. This is such a cute and easy read, it easily sweeps you away into the lives of the characters.
The blurb utterly hooked me straight away. I wanted to see how things ended up and how these characters made things work. I instantly fell in love with them and their story.
I have read a few books by this author now and each and everyone I have enjoyed, this one being no exception. I would definitely recommend anything by this author

Awww I really enjoyed this story. It’s a sweet fun little read that you can just pick up and get lost in and not have a care in the world. The characters are great together and I loved the ups and downs they have with their jobs, their lives, everything.

I lovely 5 star read. One I would recommend to others.

Such a cute book with loveable, quirky characters. I adore Tyler and Melanie. I would definitely visit the other characters in their own stories. Quick and Easy to read. As a 30-something, I loved all the references to the pop culture of my youth. Perfect light reading for a lazy afternoon. Solid work. Three stars.
