Until her—the woman I want—but can never have.
My ex’s sister wasn’t supposed to be stirred into the mix.

Even though I try to push her away, my son falls in love with her.

Stirred is the first book in the Twisted Fox series of interconnected standalones. It is a single dad, small town romance with a forbidden/taboo aspect to it. It has a great mix of sweet and heartfelt moments as well as drama and angst.

Jamie is an ER doctor and hasn't always had the best relationship with her sister which was made worse when her sister abbondend her new born son and boyfriend saying she didnt want anything to do with them. Jamie is a strong, kind, level headed, ra

If you want angsty single dad and his ex’s sister, then you’ll enjoy this, because Ms. Ferrell provides. The ex is a total DEAD BEAT MOTHA, so literally I was rooting hard for this couple. They were sweet and I loved the connection the heroine forms with the child. I can’t rate it higher, because there were character traits/choices that just annoyed the eff out of me. And even though I did like this couple together they really didn’t spend any time on page just falling in love. It was told to us ...more

Single dad/ mom romance novels are something that I really like to read because I love seeing how the h/ H will interact with the child or children of the other person. This book has this trope and I was immediately interested to read it. I was a little hesitant though because of the whole it’s the sisters ex that is the single dad and H. However, I didn’t mind it as much as I thought I would. I don’t normally like them because of the DRAMA that it brings. But the drama in this didn’t

I'm a newbie to this author. I saw this book in a Facebook giveaway. The blurb captured my interest. Forbidden romance. Falling for your ex's little sister. Single Dad. I would like to say this book was written for me. I couldn't wait till the giveaways was closed. I bought stirred. Best decision.
The prologue starts with Cohen begging Heather to be with him and their son,Noah...but as we know Heather leaves..Fast forward to 5yrs later, Jamie,our heroine meets them at the hospital where she is wo

This book was a definite trip in every sense of the word.
First, it’s a sexy single daddy romance. Cohen is a broody, dedicated family man, his life evolves around his son and his bar.
Second, it’s a forbidden romance as well because the heroine Jamie, is Cohen’s ex girlfriend/baby mamma’s younger sister. She’s a Doctor by day, sassy spitfire by night.
Third, things get complicated when Jamie and Cohen start spending time together and their hatred for one another turns into an all consuming, off

Put together some Angst, a forbidden romance, great side characters and so drama and you have this single dad romance! Charity put together a great romance that will keep you wanting more. This is the first book in the Twisted Fox series and now I can’t wait for future books! Jamie is sweet, caring and has been in love with her sister’s ex for a long time now. Cohen is closed off to his ex’s family, he is a single dad to the most adorable little boy Noah and he’s doing all he can to manage the b ...more

Last year, I read a book by this author, and even though I didn't hate it, I felt that there were no good reasons to read another book by her. A couple of days ago, that changed... mainly because everything in my kindle seems boring (yes, there are about 300 or 400 ebooks in it) and I just couldn't find anything interesting by looking here in Goodreads. That's why I started Stirred.
I think I have said this before, but I don't really like romances with single parents. Mainly because I can't imagi

Stirred by Charity Ferrell was enjoyable read. I think this series is off to a great start. I look forward to other books in this series.

If you are a fan of the single father romance with a hint of forbidden in it, then this is a book you should read. I really liked this storyline, it was something new that I hadn’t read in awhile. I liked that because of how the Her

I picked this one up primarily for the cover, but ended up really enjoying this single dad, forbidden romance. I definitely plan to continue in the series!

Cohen was such a protective, nurturing father, always ensuring the top priority was his son. Left with a lot of resentment since being left as a single father five years ago, he unexpectedly crosses paths with Jamie, the sister of his ex-girlfriend, during an ER visit.

With their first interaction fuelled by hatred, promising to never let any c

Book 1 in the new Twisted Fox series and it was such a great start. Single dad with a forbidden romance theme was all I needed to see to know that I wanted to read this story. Jamie and Cohen stole my heart and had me rooting for them the entire time I read their story. They had some much history between them and not all of it was good. When he needed help for his son, Jamie was the one who ended up helping him. They started to slowly navigate around each other and get to know each other again a ...more

I love love loved this book! I loved the characters (except Heather the hoe bag), I love the storyline, & I loved the love! I’ve never read any of Charity’s books before but she’s got a new fan for life from me.

First off I love a good single dad romance, their always so fierce & protective & I really really like that. Secondly love the name Cohen & Noah. These two were absolutely adorable together & I sided with Cohen throughout the entire book.

Jamie, sometimes family sucks & you can’t change
Jess (ireadergosum) Reviews
There is just something about a wounded single dad that pulls me right into a story. Cohen is all broody with a wall up that no one is supposed to break through, but with good reason. His son Noah is the freakin' cutest and I love how he adds to the story along the way. And of course Noah totally falls for Jamie, because who wouldn't. Jamie is a doctor that's sweet and just wants to be apart of her nephew's life. The journey these three go on definitely has its ups and downs, but I really enjoye ...more

If you haven’t heard of Charity Ferrell or haven’t read any of her books, than WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Charity Ferrell was such a surprise author for me. I randomly found one of her books and then I just couldn't stop reading and reading. Finally I had read them all and now I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Stirred (Book #1) in the Twisted Fox Series. Which by the way made my day❤️ I remember reading Just Roommates and being introduced to Jamie & Cohen. From that moment on I was hoping t ...more

I'm a sucker for a sexy, single dad and Cohen Fox was the epitome of these characteristics! He'd been wronged in the worst possible way, was raising his 5 year old son alone and trying to run a successful business. Love wasn't even on his radar when a chance encounter in the local ER with his baby mama's little sister happened. But seeing Jamie brought back a ton of emotions for Cohen, and not all of them were good.

The history between Cohen and Jamie was complicated but with the past behind them

I loved loved loved this book! Stirred is a spin-off off Charity’s Blue Beech Series where we had briefly met Cohan and Jamie. I love this little world that Ms. Ferrell has created with her characters. All of their lives tie together in someway and I love that.

These two characters were so prefect for each other and as to work through some very big issues. Noah, Cohan’s little boy was my favorite character in this story. He was so adorable and fun, very much like how a young child is in real life

Oh my gosh you guys! This book was magic! It was pure break my heart, melt my heart, put my heart back together again gold! Jamie and Cohen’s story is gut wrenching at first , but then it gives way to this phenomenally beautiful journey of love, and healing at the same time. Cohen and Jamie’s story is anything but a traditional boy meets girl romance.

From the outside looking in these are two people who are so wrong for each other for many reasons, but from the moment the

I can never resist a single dad romance, so when I first read the blurb of Stirred, I was already interested. Add to the mix the sister’s ex trope and I was really intrigued. This was my first time reading Charity Ferrell and now I’m hooked. This book was a pleasant surprise!

Jamie’s big sister broke Cohen’s heart five years earlier when she left him and their newborn son. Needless to say there’s some tension between Jamie and him when they have a chance encounter a

Stirred is a sister’s ex-boyfriend, single dad and forbidden romance and is the first in the Twisted Fox series.

After having his heart broken and abandoned by the mother of his child, Cohen steps up to be the best father for his son. His determination to provide a happy for life for his son was admirable and shows just what type of man he is.

Jamie has been in love with Cohen ever since he started dating her sister. Years later, fate intervenes and brings them back together. I must admi
I’m giving this book 4.5 stars. I really loved it but it didn’t evoke quite the feelings that a 5 star book does for me. But I loved the story, the characters...everything! Cohen Fox is the lead male character and owns his own bar. Even his name is smokin’ hot! Jamie Gentry is the lead female character and a kickass doctor!

I live for books like this. A forbidden romance with all the angst and tears, GAHHHH I love it. This books was so so good. The author took my heart on a ride and at times I thought it would be completely crushed, but that's the beauty of books like this, even if they crush you a little they also have a way of making your heart completely soar!

Charity Ferrell always has a way of wringing the emotions from me, and this book was no exception. I fell hard for Cohen right from the prologue, and the complicated, kind of forbidden romance between him and Jamie was an angsty, emotional rollercoaster that had me hooked.
Loved it (apart from Heather, who made me angry every time she was mentioned 😠😂) and can't wait for the rest of the series!

Charity, has a way to weave what are ordinary storylines and make them extraordinary. I love her reading her books, they are packed with all the feelings that makes them hard to put down.

Jamie & Cohen's story is filled with angst, forbidden, and its addicting.
This was a great first book to this series.

I need all the others now, please. lol
