Smittened by Jamie Farrell is both #2.5 in the Misfit Brides of Bliss series and also part of the Snowy Days and Steamy Nights: Come In From the Cold anthology which I am currently reading. You know, there is no better way to get acquainted with new authors than to read an anthology of short stories. This is how I found Jamie Farrell. This story is sweet and full of hilarious little anecdotes. The characters were loveable and heart warming.

This was a very cute and very creative story with a lot of heart, and ice cream flavors I very much want to try!

“What, was there something special in your ice cream?” he said like an ass.
“Estrogen,” she said. “You might notice some swelling in your boobs and shrinkage in your package for a few days.”

I am honestly not accustom to this type of southern dialect and writing style when I read (or speak for that matter) but it wasn't so overdone that I couldn't understa
Mickey Diamond is a country superstar in love with his best friend's sister. But, she married, had kids, and then got divorced, but somehow the two never could manage to get together. But, now he has met a really great lady named Dahlia. The trouble is he doesn't know if she is using him to help her sell her ice cream flavors or if he is really over the woman he has loved all his life.
This story made me crave chocolate ice cream and I loved the names of the flavors. Although this a really short

Yep, this is why Ms. Farrell is one of my new favorite authors! I couldn't help but love every one of the characters and it sets up the next story in the Misfit Brides of Bliss series very nicely indeed. Of all the novellas in the Snowy Days, Steamy Nights anthology, this was probably the only one that left me wanting more and I'll definitely be reading on to find out what happens with Will and his lady.

And Dahlia's ice cream... oh, wow! If you're a foodie like I am, you'll be straight off to Ba

I fell in love with this story right in the beginning. Lonely sweet small town girl falls in love with Superstar Drummer Mikey. Mikey a man-whore with a heart, who only had eyes for his childhood friend Mari Belle…until he met ice cream shop owner Dahlia, his whole world changed.

He thought he was only going to be around Dahlia to have a place to stay, after their placed burned down and she sweetly offered a room for him. But he got more t

Well this is another terrific read from Jaime Farrell. A drummer a girl and an ice cream parlor sounds like a good start to a joke huh. Well this is a story that grabs you and holds you. I love a story about finding love in the least likely places especially when you aren't looking for it. I highly recommend this story and to be honest anything by the Author she is fabulous. ...more

Another great read by Jamie Farrell! Smittened was a sweet, sassy, sexy love story. Dahlia and Mike seemed to be such an unlikely couple, but at the same time seemed perfect together. They both needed something from the other...Dahlia needed Mike's help to get to his best friend and superstar band mate Billy to save her business (Ice cream...YUMMMMMMY!!). Mike needed a place to stay after burning his house down, and though he doesn't know it he needs someone to save him from being a career hound ...more

Smittened quickly joined the books and stories that I will definitely reread again and again. Oh how I wish there really was an ice cream shop named The Milked Duck. And that they offered erotic flavors. Dahlia needs Mikey to get to Billy so that her adults only ice cream tasting can bring in the people to save her shop. Mikey needs Dahlia after watching his home go up in flames. Neither are prepared for what happens when they are together. I was so happy to be taken back to Bliss with this nove ...more

A sweet short story of a small town girl and a playboy rocker. Neither one looking for love. But when the playboy can't seem to stay away from the ice cream lady, the sexual tension between the two gets quite funny. Love this story. Jamie Farrell knocks it out of the park once again! ...more

Smittened by Jamie Farrell is a great novella.

Dahlia needed help. She was someone who helped everyone and believed in the good of people. I loved how the main character, Dahlia was making ice cream and not just ordinary ice cream - some of the flavors sounded soooo good (Chocolate Organism and Peachy Passion). She needed help to draw people in.
Mikey was a drummer and song-writer for a famous band and he needed a place to crash. Mikey was guarded and as much as he wanted to help her, he didn’t g

I absolutely adored this story. Jamie Farrell writes the best kind of characters. They are always a little quirky and a whole lot sweet, full of that Southern charm we all love. She writes the most uniquely charming stories that EVERYONE should read. I found myself smiling, and sighing, throughout this story. I love the familiarity of "The most married-est town on Earth" and "The Aisle" and can't wait to read more about the people who live there!! ...more

Smittened is a new short story by Jamie Farrel. This story is part of the Snowy Days/Steamy Nights boxed set. I enjoyed "meeting" Dahlia and Mikey. They are a fun couple. I loved the ice cream flavors Dahlia invents in her ice cream shop. I hope to read more about Mikey and Dahlia in a future book. I look forward to reading all your books, Jamie. Great new author, check her out!! ...more

I loved this book! It was the kind of book that left me wanting more, which happens to be perfect because this is part of a series revolving around an adorable town and the husband games. You know a book is good when you read it too fast right? I gobbled it up like it was the ice cream in the book. But seriously, can we get a real Milked Duck around here?
Those gray eyes slid back to her. “Your shower big enough for two?”
“Yes, but the cats don’t like to get wet. Neither does the
guinea pig. But you might have some success with the lizard.”
Bad, bad move. Because both corners of his mouth were
getting in on the smile action. He moved them one at a time, first the right corner, then a slow follow from the left corner.
And then he showed his dimple.

SMITTENED is another cute story in Jamie Farrell's Misfit Brides series. This novella features Mikey Diamond, the drummer and best friend of Will Truitt from MATCHED, and a self-proclaimed man-whore who never expected to find the woman of his dreams is the town of Bliss. Falling in Love, anywhere, was not on his agenda.

Dahlia inherited The Milk Duct, an ice cream shop just off the aisle in Bliss from her Aunt Agnes and she loves running it and creating new ice cream flavors. She's a little ditz

I loved Mickey and Dahlia's story. You sort of got hints of it in Matched but it was great to read the whole story. Mickey is really a very sweet guy and he goes out of his way to help Dahlia even though he does not want to admit to his feelings. Dahlia obviously has terrible taste in men and has previously picked the wrong guy, so she has trouble trusting Mickey expecting to get hurt by him just like all the others. Then the unthinkable happens, she lets herself fall for Mickey only to discover ...more

I'm not sure I understand all the 5 star reviews, but I guess a lot of people enjoyed this short romance novella. Maybe you have to read the series from the beginning, ( I haven't), because there seems to be a lot going on in this town that I probably needed to know before reading this story. The writing was fine within itself and there were some fun one-liners. Everything seemed rushed, including character development, so I really wasn't invested in the H/h. It felt like I was deposited into th ...more

This sweet, sexy (yet clean) romance will have you smiling over and over.
The story starts HOT, as in burning hot, immediately showing us the contrasts and hinting at complications. Mikey Diamond lived for attention and action. Dahlia Mallard knew what life was like moving around but when she inherited an ice cream parlor, she finally felt at home.
Billy Brenton, rock star, seems to be the only thing they have in common and he is missing.

Jamie Farrell has hit it out of the park with Smitten. Dahlia, an ice cream shop entrepreneur, falls for Mikey, a drummer with Billy Benton's band, striking sparks and melting ice cream between them.
When I was done with this read, also set in the same town as Blissed, I wanted to hie myself to the nearest ice cream stand.

In this third book of the “Misfit Brides” series, Dahlia and Mikey put enough passion in ice cream that it will have the reader checking their freezer for that carton they keep hidden!

I read the first two books in this series and really loved them, so I was excited to keep reading into the series, even though I wasn't very interested in this couple when they were a background couple in the second novel, "Matched". I was even more disappointed that this was more of a short story or novella, clocking in at only 113 pages. As a result, I was generally disinterested in this story. There wasn't enough time to really develop the characters past what we already knew about them from ...more

This book was a short story and followed in the same timeline of the second book in the series, Matched. It follows Mikey and Dahlia. Mikey is a drummer and Dahlia really needs him to try to get Will, the singer of his band, to attend her ice cream soiree. There's a bit of push and pull and while I enjoyed the humor, I thought that the pacing was off. The ending was, I thought, abrupt and in fact, Mikey's love of Dahlia was, in my opinion, not very strong. Read/listen to it and you'll see what I ...more
