Derek and Piper are just starting their relationship. He is coming off a bad one where he was about to get married to a woman who was cheating on him. The whole affair had him questioning his judgement so he entered into the dating ring with no commitments but all of that changed when he met Piper through a dating app. She had him believing in himself until his ex started sending messages and arriving where he worked and lived. He omitted the truth to Piper and when she found the notes almost ...more

When I first read about the 425 Madison series, I was definitely intrigued. This series contains all standalone novels that are set in New York City. And ‘Just A Little More’ is already the tenth book in the series, and the first one I read.

This book is a little different than most books I’ve been reading. We meet the two main characters Piper and Derek when they are almost a month together in a monogamous relationship. After dating for a while, they decided to delete all dating apps and focus

I was very excited to hear that 425 Madison was going to release “season two” because y’all know how much I loved 425 Madison. Kicking off season two is Allie York who wrote book three, “Just Swipe Right,” in season one. (Let’s see how many times I can say “season” in this review. LOL). Since it feels like summer where I live, let’s grab an iced cold beverage and chat about Allie York’s “Just a Little More”.

It all started six months ago at a tiny NYC dog park. Derek, a stranger at the time,

I was first introduced to Allie York in the first season of the 425 Madison series and loved her novel, Just Swipe Right. This is also where Derek and Piper were first introduced. Just a Little More had the same light-hearted, happy romantic feelings as Just Swipe Right, but I can’t say I loved it as much. The fun and flirty banter were there, the interesting and engaging characters were there, but something was missing. Unfortunately, I can’t exactly put my finger on what it was. Maybe because ...more

425 Madison is the perfect place for love. Just a Little More is the story of Derek and Piper. They met, started a relationship, and oops… Piper is pregnant. Both Derek and Piper are not relationship people but when they met each other something changes. They committed to each other, chose to be faithful to each other, and fell in love with each other. Pregnancy is not in their plan but sometimes things are out of your control.

Piper and Derek try to figure out their way to being together,

Just a Little More is the tenth book in the 425 Madison series, but as with every book in the series it works perfectly fine as a standalone novel. For those who have read Just Swipe Right, the third book in the series that was also written by Allie York, you will recognise the characters in this one.

As I adored Just Swipe Right, I was eager for Just a Little More. I really enjoyed our leading characters when they were side characters and was eager to see how things would play out between them.

The 425 Madison Series is back and Just a Little More lets us revisit some characters from the first series while getting a look at a relationship that started out in a past book.

Remember Eliza and Murphy? Oh and sex crazed Sara? From Just Swipe Right? If you haven't read that one, go and get it! It was a fun read!

Well they are back and its Piper, Eliza's sister and Derek, Murphy's friend, who are making a go at a relationship, which is all kinds of hot and steamy. Even when the unexpected baby

I'm a HUGE fan of the A 425 Madison series, so I'm ALWAYS excited when there's a new one, and boy did I LOVE Piper & Derek's story a TON! They have appeared in a few previous stories, and the secondaries in this series (like the insane sex crazed Sara) definitely deserve their own story! Please understand that I'm not saying their journey was an easy one, because it just wasn't, as a mistake brings on some big push & pull to the table. Derek is coming off a really bad relationship, which ...more

I really liked Piper and Derek's story. If you are a fan of the 425 Madison series these characters will be familiar to you as they appear in the book, Just Swipe Right and if not, you have nothing to worry about because it stands alone perfectly well. The read offers a good blend of emotions, drama, humor, sweetness and heat. It is easy to become invested in this couple as they struggle with their own fears and emotions, while also trying to deal with a couple unexpected twists along the way. ...more

I've be anxiously awaiting Piper & Derek's story ever since meeting them in Eliza & Murphy's story...I knew their romance would be a fun story and boy was it!

Piper & Derek definitely had a physical attraction romance first but quickly found they have a lot of mutual interests and it developed into an exclusive relationship.

Major old relationship hurts and scars cause some insecurity issues for Derek especially when a surprise pregnancy is discovered.

Piper and Derek are in a new relationship. They are happy, but still in the getting-to-know-each-other-as-a-couple stage. They can see themselves falling in love, but it's still new. Then they get a big surprise and suddenly things get a lot more real for them.

I really, really liked these two together. They were minor characters in Just Swipe Right and it was fun getting a little update on the characters from that story (Piper's sister and Derek's best friend). I was also pleasantly surprised by

"Just a little more" is a first book in New edition of 425 Madison series. This is a story about new, fresh relationship of Derek and Piper. New relationship is definitely not easy from him because in the previous one, when he supposed to get married, he was cheated on instead. So that's no surprise that he may have some trust issues and he decides to enter whole dating world once again but this time without commitment. That all changes when he meet Piper thank to a dating app. She helped him to ...more

A great start for season two of 425 Madison Avenue, by Allie York through Just a little More. If you have read Just Swipe Right from the Season 1, you could have come across the lead characters of JALM, Piper and Derek as Eliza's Sister and Murphy's friend. This story is really amazing, I loved, how their relationship has grown from season1 to season 2 and how Derek handles the situations when Piper gives him the news. Both have been a different type of people before they fall for each other and ...more

425 Madison series Season 2! How excited is everyone?! And Allie York has proven to be the perfect pick for the first book of the new season.

She gives us a chance to catch up with some of the most memorable characters from the first season (remember crazy Sara??) as well as an introduction of the new leading man/lady in this novel. Derek and sweet and taking a chance on monogamy. Only...oops! Someone's pregnant. The twists, and challenges, and honesty, and steam throughout this book

After the way his last relationship ended Derek was looking for some casual fun and was determined to keep his heart protected but there is something about Piper that has him second guessing that choice. Now that Derek has come into Piper’s life she is happy both personally and professional and the future looks bright.

The feelings they have for each other and their relationship is about to be tested when not only the past but a surprise in the present will push it to the limits.

Just a Little More is the first book in the second 'season" of storied taking place at 425 Madison avenue. This one is kind of a followup of Just Swipe Right. It features two side characters from that book, Piper and Derek. I was actually really excited to be able to read their story because their getting together intrigued me in the first book. I was no disappointed! I loved them together. Their story was super sweet. I especially loved the epilogue and the surprise Derek brought home instead ...more

Such a fun book! Derek and Piper are so cool. Derek a restaurant manager and Piper a upcoming lawyer studying, are in a new relationship but things do not go smoothly. The nuts off fascinating characters and the drama development make this book an exciting and fun story. It was a fast read, romantic, little tension and a little steam but not a great deal. It was more about the relationship developing between Derek and Piper. I enjoyed this series so far both the first series of books and this ...more

Absolutely in love with this series and I couldn’t be more ecstatic about it coming back!! I love the fact that we get more of our favorite couples and now I’m curious about more people who we introduced!!

I have to say that I was a bit emotional with this one since I am pregnant as well. Parts that wouldn’t normally make me cry had me crying like a baby and then just filled with so much happiness! The struggle this young couple already have to overcome is not only with new beginnings but with

I voluntarily review an ARC.
This is the tenth book of the 425 Madison series, the first book of the second season. The books are standalones, but you should read Just Swipe Right first.
I loved this book, what a great start of the new season!
A new relationship still in the getting-to-know-each-other phase and birth control gone wrong lead to insecurities about how to plan the future in the wrong order. But there is so much chemistry and Piper and swoonworthy Derek are so cute together you won't

This is the first book I have read in this series, and the first by this author, so I had no idea if I would like it or not. Well, I loved it!! This is a fast read, so easy to pick up and finish in a day. The story involves Derek and Piper, and the highs and lows of their relationship. The story pulls you in and drags you along. This book is more about their relationship, and I believe that some of the characters in the book are from some of the other books from the first series. I am definitely ...more

I really liked this book - predictable storyline, but it was cute. Piper is a little insecure, and verbally spit out her thoughts, sometimes without thinking; and Derek was hurt badly in the past and wasn’t sure he was what Piper really wanted or needed. Circumstances, unexpected, land in their laps, which they deal with, and the past comes back to Derek - which he doesn’t deal with - Piper finds out - and the storms brews and breaks. Through some grovelling and sucking up, Derek gets through to ...more

Test in a new couple
The story is hot, sometimes funny with notably the neighbor Sara who decides to impose herself and to become the new roommate of the heroine Piper, but the story was a little too cute at the start and I did not see too much where it would go. Then, the second part becomes more interesting because the following question arises: can a new couple withstand the first unforeseen events that destabilize them or the return of their past. The story remains simple, but moving and

Amazing start to the second session of the series

I absolutely love all the 425 Madison books. I’m thrilled for a new series of them.

I really liked this story with Piper and Derek.

It was so funny and very sweet. Sara was hysterical! She lightened the moods with everything. There was so much humor as well as many other emotions-joy, sadness, fear the list could go on.

I liked catching up with Pipers sister and her fiancé.

Start at the beginning and work your way up. You won’t be sorry.

Another great book that takes place at 425 Madison Avenue in NYC. Loved the characters and the story lines. Derek and Piper both looking for a steady relationship and find so much more. Piper’s sister is living with Derek’s best friend. They all get along great and then add the mix of Sara already a tenant living with her mother who is driving her crazy.

I can’t wait until the next story comes out.

This was a cute story from the 425 Madison series! Piper is trying to live her best life with a job she loves and a man in her corner. Derek loves the restaurant where he works and the woman he adores. Everything is going their way until the tables are turned and they are thrown a complication. I really enjoyed reading their story!

Thank you for the privilege of reading this book! Well done

The tenth book in the series in the 425 Madison Avenue series. It was amazing. Following on from the first series we pick up on Eliza's sister Piper and her new man Derek. There story is one with many emotional changes but a journey but what a great one. I love Derek. Hes had a rough relationship past but he has found a great girl but there a little bump in the road. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series xx

I vaguely remembered Piper and Derek from another story in the 425 Madison series but not much, which I appreciated going in since they were already in a relationship when we meet them. It didn't bother me and I found it a nice change to jump right into their lives.

It wasn't my favorite in the series because the drama with his ex felt manufactured and I didn't really feel the chemistry between them. The story was quick and easy and fun.

A great start to a part 2 of 425 Madison Series. A story that shows that not everything happens the way we plan it or even in the order that we think life events should happen. I love Derek in this book and how he wants to be there for Piper but not seem like to much to fast. And Piper she isn't afraid of being independent and definitely doesn't want to show otherwise to the people she knows, but Derek brings out a new comfort in her and it's such a great story. I loved this story so much.

A fun filled read to add to the 425 Madison series!

I liked that the main characters knew each other for 6 months at the start of the story cause I am not a huge fan of instant love stories. Derek seems dreamy and I enjoyed the relationship dynamic between him and Piper. Add in am accidental pregnancy and you have a juicy story.

Derek and Piper are just starting their relationship. All is going well until Derek's ex shows up and starts messaging him. He decides not to tell Piper and she finds out through finding the notes. The relationship gets rocky for awhile. Just when you think things are over between the couple they manage to work it out. A good read.
