Apr 08, 2018 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
Now this was a book written for all those love hopefuls who enjoy down to earth characters with real problems that relate to the ordinary world, and a spicy spicy romance. Although the only thing that was unneeded were parentheses to convey the characters thoughts. Since it was in the first POV, they could have just remained short sentences without their distracting from the flow of the book. But I adored Lynn and Nick's story and I can't wait for more from the Smart Girl Mafia.

Lynn is an autho
Great Girl Mafia

If all the ladies in this series are as fun as Lynn readers are in for a treat. It took a sec for me to get invested but once I got Lynn’s quirkinesses the story flowed. Not an insta romance but definitely a rush to HEA once both realize the potential.

Great Read!

Looking forward to reading more in this series and more from this author.

Love when a couple gets together and stays together without too much angst and unnecessary separations.

Loved their interaction and verbal play! Just enough from secondary characters to foretell upcoming story arcs but not overwhelm the reader!

Break Free is Amiee Smith’s debut novel. It had a lot of good features. The story was interesting, there were definitely no cookie cutter characters, and I wanted to know what happened with this couple.

Lynn is a quirky writer who has made a good life for herself despite her own personal struggles. After losing a significant amount of weight, she is ready to let go a bit. The perfect opportunity arises when Nick wants to hook up. Nick seems to have it all. The popular ex-Olympian wit

Quirky, fun read

This story really touched home for me. I have a daughter(and son) that's ADHD and my sister is one of the leading cannibis advocates in CA. Even with that being said, this story opened up my eyes to the world of cannibis. The story between Lynn and Nick was really sweet and the only thing that made the story not flow as well for me was at times I could determine if Lynn was a recently college grad or actually a 33yr old woman. The whole "holy unicorn" on multiple occasions throug

It was very educative

First time reading MS. Smith and although I was getting annoyed with the amount of ma##### that they were doing, it was not too bad.
It was very educative, from learning about friends support and love, parents, to learning about ADHD and trying to live normally while dealing with everyday life...

“Oh My Goddess”

What can I say about this book? The title says it all. This story is smart, sassy, sexy, and liberating. I love how vivid the story is and it mirrors some of my dreams and potential ambitions. The characters just fit and the story was hard to put down. I’m anxiously awaiting the sequel 😀
I was so bored

yeah not for me. I really gave this book an effort. I couldn't finish the book I was do bored. I really want to like this book

First read by this author!! Can I say I love her writing? New Author Crush? Lynn is the woman we all see a little of ourselves. I love her strength, it comes off so quiet and mild then Bam! Nick is “EVERYTHING!” a book boyfriend Hubble should be! Love his determination in nailing Lynn down and claiming her. I adored the side characters! Everything this book was... I enjoyed!! Seriously!! Great Job Ms. Aimee!!

Very nice

I enjoyed the book and the characters. I love the music and I even picked up her favorite green juice. She made me rethink my food choices. Something I had been already thinking about. I was fascinated by their mutual enjoyment. Never knew there was so much so many to choose from. Looking forward to the next book.

4.5 Thoroughly enjoyed this new-to-me author! When I’m not writing I love reading outside of my fantasy/paranormal romance and this lovely contemporary romance did not disappoint! The characters were interesting and realistic. While I know nothing of medicinal marijuana use, I felt like I learned about it outside of the traditional negative views. I appreciated how the author wove together the vices of the couple while showing their growth throughout! I look forward to reading more of this autho ...more

Great new read and new to me author. I enjoyed both the MCs finding themselves and holding true to their path together. It made me laugh and at times I could not put it down. I just purchased the next one on the series.

Actually great.

I did not think I would like it but this book dealt with a lot of taboo issues. They learn to deal with them and enjoy a full life
