I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
This is the first time that I have read a book by this author, but it won't be the last, well because for one this is book one and I need to know what happens between Nicholas and Olive 😍
I really enjoyed the start of this book and how it draws you in. Olive receives a cheque through the post from a mystery benefactor, it's for the exact amount to pay off her student loans. The BIG question does she use it or not? What does the mystery per

This was a good read. Olive is like most people and just trying to pay off her debts. She receives a check for a lot of money. Of course she is skeptical at first but eventually she finds out that it is real. However, there is a catch. With everything her mom puts her through it changes things. It will be interesting to see how it will all go in the next part of their story.

This was an amazing read! Of course, I don’t expect anything less with Charlotte Byrd’s books. She’s such a great author. The book starts out a little slow, but not too bad. Olive has a ton of student loans and receives a letter and check paying all them off. She finds out more of who the mystery person is and a little of why. It was so sweet and I wanted to cry. But I would still like to know more about Nicolas and the past and what role it will play. I feel like there’s more he isn’t telling h ...more

Tell Me To Stop by Charlotte Byrd is amazing.

I love the way Ms Byrd weaves in the main characters background, while pulling you deeper into the storyline.

Olive is a caring soul, and she tries to do what’s right.

But what happens when temptation comes knocking at her door?

You’ll have to read it find out!

Great start to Charlotte’s new series!

Great start to a new series! Olive is shocked to receive a check for her student loans and then a letter to meet the person who gave it to her in Maui. She meets Nicholas and is shocked to discover what he wants from her and she runs home. Her mother racks up large gambling debts and she needs to find a way to get the money. Will she go to Nicholas? Fast-paced read with lots of drama and suspense. Looking forward to more in the series. I loved it!

Nice easy read, the first of a series. The plot line is interesting and sends us on a few twists. I enjoyed the interaction between the characters and the conversations flowed easily.

OMW! What a GREAT start to a new episodic SERIES! Captivating, addictive and INTENSE!
Life or better put, living life well is not easy. For those who have little money, this can be doubly true. For Olivia Kernes, the heroine of TELL ME TO STOP, money or perhaps more accurately debts and the ability to pay them off place her in a precarious position and a player in a game she doesn’t understand. Not only is she clueless about her role in the game, but she also doesn’t understand the rules. Again,

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date August 6, 2019

I owe him a debt, but I can't pay it back with money.

He wants something else: me, for one year. But I don’t even know how he is…

“What do you mean by I have to spend 365 nights with you?” I ask.

“Exactly that," he says.

“I won’t have sex with you,” I say categorically.

“I promise you one thing," his eyes challenge mine. "You will be begging me to do it before our time is up.”

4.5 stars. The series is off to a good start! I always swear I won’t do another story where there are episodes to wait for, but she is a favorite author and I couldn’t resist. So, here we go...
Olive receives an anonymous gift of money that has been hand delivered. It’s exactly the amount of her student loans. She’s on the fence about paying them, but she relents to clear the loans. Then she receives an invitation to Hawaii to meet her benefactor. Nicholas explains he is paying a commitment forwa

Well Charlotte you’ve done it again!

This was different and yet still amazing.

Olive’s life is not all starry and exciting she is just simply a girl trying to figure out how to live her life and yet pay her bills. With a NO good mother and only one best friend Olive just goes with the flow.

When she receives a check in the mail with no explanation, she is not sure what to do but yet can only think of one thing for sure. Not knowing what the consequences will be if she cashes it in or not.

Like most students, Olive has lots of debt and she given a check by a mysterious person to pay off her student loans but once she pays off her loans, she is taken to Maui where she meets the mysterious benefactor and offers her a proposal that she isn't thrilled about but she has a change of heart when something happens with h ...more

4.5 Stars! I have read a couple of Charlotte Byrd's series and this one seems to be the start of another good one. The characters are interesting with a bit of mystery. There is a girl, Olive, who receives a check that is the exact amount that she owes on her student loans. She doesn't know who sent it and whether or not it is a joke. Should she cash it? If she does what will happen? She doesn't come from the best of families though she used her brains to get a college education and get out of h ...more

We start right out the gate with a bit of a mystery. We meet Olive and her bestie and she has just received a check for the exact amount of her student loans. This one has definitely got me shaking for more.

Getting to know Olive you will love her and feel for her. She doesn't have it easy and has alot on her plate. Not to mention ghosts of the past that she can't escape. Just as she has bad, she also has a mystery man who now wants her to meet him in Maui.

Not spoiling any more. You need to read

Wow, are you in for a treat. I have already fallen in love with Olive and Nicholas. I am already hooked on this series. I could not put this book down till I finished it and now I am trying to be calm till the next book comes out. There are so many things happening in this story it had me laughing, crying and wanting to know what is going to happen next. The characters are so well written that it is like you know them.

WHY DO I HAVE TO WAIT

Why do you do this to be Charlotte? You bring another great book out, I get comfy with my cuppa tea and my dog curled up. Before I know it, it's got me hooked and then BAM! It's finished and i have to wait for the next one!

You love to do this, make us readers wait and want more.

It's so unfair that I can not binge them all and avoid talking to my husband for several days. Now I have to communicate with him until the next one is released.

“How do you know me?” I ask.
Now, it’s his turn to look down at the floor. Now, it’s his turn to hesitate.
“You have to tell me or I won’t even entertain this offer,”

“You owe me a debt, Olive,” he says, slowly. “I don’t have to explain anything to you beyond stating the terms of how you can replay it.”
