Zing went the strings of my heart! I loved this book to the moon and back!! It was like a breath of fresh spring air that brings a bright bouquet of colors with it.

A cast full of delightful, sweet, eccentric characters -- both young and old(er) -- who'll pitter-patter their way into your heart with their lovable antics and helpful shoves. The main characters are vibrant and amazing. I swear Jack is one of my most favorite beta-heroes ever! Although he has his own brand of quirks, he st

If you are looking for a light read, this is the one for you! I love Hazel's humor and this one will pick you right up. Jack and Tuesday are adorable. Tuesday just wants to be heard in her field of journalism and Jack wants to stay hidden. Tuesday is the best thing that has happened to him, in my opinion, because she causes him to get out of his comfort zone and so things he is scared of. They both challenge each other in the best way, but the support they show one another is the best part. Thes ...more

Sweet, funny, and just the right amount of heat, Checked Out is the trifecta of a feel-good good story that left me rooting for humanity beyond the pages. My world just feels brighter from knowing Tuesday Collins and Jack Price.

CHECKED OUT is the first Hazel James book I’ve read, and I’ll definitely be reading more. This book is cute, sweet, steamy, and funny, which is everything I was hoping to find in it. Hazel has a talent for one-line jokes that come out of nowhere and make you laugh aloud. Her sexy scenes make you want to fan yourself. And the heart of the characters is so organic it felt like I’ve met them, or would like to meet them, in real life. Some of the lines I wanted to highlight for their beauty, others ...more

Absolute Sweet Read!!

First of all, I had to stop and go make some brownies! ;) but mine didn’t have any fun shapes!

Wow. I am so so so happy I read this book. Blown. Away. I met Hazel at a book signing last year but hadn’t had a chance to read any of her work yet. Then her book baby came out here. And it kept nagging in the back of my mind to read it. I’m SO GLAD I DID!!!

Tuesday and Jack are such swoon worthy characters. Tuesday has her own way of being comical and serious at the same time. Plus

Checked Out by Hazel James is absolutely hilarious and endearing.

You will love Tuesday & Jack. And you’ll wish you had an Aunt Alma and a niece Olivia.

These two had me in stitches!

Not to mention the other supporting characters that make this book a treasure.

Ms James does an excellent job of bringing you into these characters lives and making you invested. You’ll find yourself laughing with them, hurting with them, and celebrating with them.

But most of all, you’ll find yourself wanting more.

First of all, the branding for this book is way off. Whatever you think this is going to be, it’s 100 times more wholesome and more cute. Jack Price is the most perfect character written into existence. If people like jack existed in real life, I don’t know what I would do.
The romance in this novel is not anything remarkable, but it’s just so freaking perfect. There’s no unnecessary drama. There’s no annoying humor. There’s just a romance story that feels so genuine, and the story makes you sha

I adored this book so much. I laughed so many times - much to the chagrin of my dogs. It was nice to escape the reality of life right now. Hazel James has so much talent and seeing her sass in these characters was amazing! If you're looking for a book to help you escape for a few hours, I highly recommend reading this one!! You won't be disappointed! ...more

I wanted to love it but I didn't. But I didn't hate it either. It's most likely my mood so I'm not faulting the author for that! It was well written and I liked the characters so it's a 3.5 from me. ...more

IN RELATED NEWS: I loved EVERYTHING about this book!!!

I'm pretty easily pleased, I figure if you've taken time and effort to put thousands of words onto pages andvarranged them into a love story, then I'm already impressed. What Hazel has done here is, well, she's taken that love story and lifted it to next level. There wasn't a part of this story I didn't love.

New romance, old new romance, witty banter that was so easy to read it was effortless. And good! The goodness level in this book should

Let me start by saying, I enjoyed this book. It was adorable and cutesy and had a few laugh out loud moments. It just left me feeling like there was a little something more I wanted, but it was still a fun read.

This is a good book. Strangers to friends to so much more. There is a bit of drama added in there and some comedy as well.

I just finish Checked Out by Hazel James and could not wait to write this review! Normally when I finish a book, I take time to think it over before I write my review. But with this book I was immediately drawn to get these words down – this book filled my soul with giddy happiness! MY SOUL people! It’s ridiculous how happy this book made me.

Jack and Tuesday are two of the most amazing characters that have ever filled the pages of a book or my imagination. They brought about all kinds of emotion

Hazel James has provided us with just what the doctor ordered. In these trying times, Hazel has delivered a breath of fresh air to us. Her recipe for the love story of Tuesday and James has the exact amount of sweet and sassy, romantic and steamy, and of course let's not forget that dash of angst just to spice things up.

I am such a mood reader, which tends to make it difficult for me to find a book. Happily, Checked Out was exactly what I needed right now. It was lighthearted, funny, and romantic. Not to mention the cast of characters were a breath of fresh air. I absolutely loved our main duo, Jack Price and Tuesday Collins. From the moment they met, the sparks were flying, but the story never felt rushed in any way. I was invested in them as a couple, and enjoyed watching their relationship grow. The subject ...more

This is my first book by this author. I am not sure what I was expecting, but I am one who judges a book by the cover. Based on the cover I was expecting a fun and flirty book. And that is pretty much what I got.

There is some really great banter in this book. Banter is everything in a less serious book... okay in any book. For some books, banter keeps the book moving. The banter in this book makes the book. The characters go back and forth like it's their job. I really enjoyed the giggles and s

I loved this book, the characters, the humor!!! I read way too much, I'm actually starting to get bored with reading. I can predict alot of the stories and am usually right.

This was adorable, very believable and it flows really well. You assume there's fireworks and drama coming but you know its going to be so good for the bully to get his...hopefully. I love how the author developed so much of the story and characters before idiot people may or may not have been dealt with. Best line ever in a

Checked out is such a fun read. I laughed out loud several times as Tuesday and Jack stole my heart. I love how Tuesday helps Jack with his stage freight and the chemistry that builds between them. Tuesday is sweet and trying to get her career off the ground. Jack is this amazing guy and of course loves working at the Library. How can you not already swoon for a guy that loves books? Jack and Tuesday just have this special way about them that you will just fall in love with. Lets not forget ther ...more

Words can’t express how much I freaking loved this book. It was the perfect blend of sweet, sassy, steamy, and silly (well, funny, but I was on a roll with the alliteration). Hazel James is so talented. She’s authentic, she writes with heart, and somehow she was able to pull off a book that was both comedic and dramatic. And it was 100% believable. I loved her creative spin and storyline, I soaked in her signature wit, and treasured the characters. Love love love and can’t recommend enough 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌 ...more

This was so stinkin cute! If any two characters were ever meant to be, it’s Jack & Tuesday! They’re the perfect example of empowering your partner, giving them strength when they need it, and trusting in them to give it back to you. They’re the couple that will continue to grow together long after they’re old & gray.

I swooned, I laughed, I fanned my face when it got steamy. Not to mention the shout-outs to Friends, my fave movie The Cutting Edge, and my daughter’s fave K-pop group BTS! I enjoye

This was a wonderful and sweet romance.
Jack had a childhood of embarrassment and bullying which helped him become an amazing man he is now.
Tuesday is someone you could become best friends with. She is kind, caring, and funny.

Put these two together and they can do great things! I love how this was a light, enjoyable and funny read. No tension, anxiety, frustration here. Just a lot of feel good.

I recommend if you want a great light read with a HEA you will want to pick this up. You won’t be ab

Hazel James will continue to be one of my automatic one-click authors. Checked Out gives us everything we love in a romance. We laugh, we feel and we fall in love with her characters. Jack and Tuesday will be your new favorite book couple!

Highly recommended.

I will extend my review closer to release day.

4.5 stars. This was a great read. I finished with a big smile on my face. Jack and Tuesday were adorable. They were perfect for each other. Tuesday pushed Jack to step out of his comfort zone and Jack supported her to go after her dreams. I LOVED that Jack didn’t let his past with Ricky ruin all the exciting things going on in Tuesday’s career. This was a light lovey read that had the perfect amount of humor sprinkled in.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! One of my favorite reads this year. It was sweet, romantic, and oh-so-steamy.💨 The swoon worthy hero, hilarious and quirky heroine, and marvelously developed side characters just made this book for me though. Ahh- I just want to gush about how much I love this book... definitely will re-read in the future when I need a pick-me-up romance.
