Jane (PS) | 20399 comments I finished this one yesterday. Loved it. It has a great storyline with two lovely characters who reach a resolution and happiness (of course ;)!


Breann | 0 comments D'aaaaaaaaawww! I loved this! I thought it was so cute and I had a smile on my face the entire time!

Dawn I loved this one so much, and looked forward to her next book Off Campus, but I was disappointed with it. It was just ok.

Same for me. I did however love her M/F/F or F/M/F (idk which one to use but they're all mixed up with each other lol) book Callie, Unwrapped.

Jane (PS) | 20399 comments I smiled the entire way through as well. Jay was seriously cute, but Devin was so sweet and humble he just crumpled my heart on each (view spoiler)

I've had Adventure in Beginnings on my TBR for a while. I think that one might be the more "d'awww" inducing :D

That one sounds good to me, and so does Brandon's Laughter. They're both really short, under 100 pages combined - maybe we want to do 2 next month?

BTW, I just realized I never came back here after reading this month's book. I agree with everyone else - very sweet, and I loved all the characters. Amazing to have such great secondary characters in such a short book.

Dawn An Adventure In Beginnings was good.

I have Brandon's Laughter on my tbr for next month.

MountainKat | 21443 comments The ones that caught my eye are Brandon's Laughter, The Executive Lounge and An Adventure In Beginnings. Any of those would be fine with me!

I like this idea

I did! I loved the story from my prompt last year so I had to do it again :D

MountainKat | 21443 comments I'm not creative like that either, I can alter patterns and such but I need a starting platform to work from. It's cool that you have done it Breann!

Dawn I didn't feel like the ideas that I had were all that fabulous like some of them are, but the reality is I like nice contemporary romance and am not big on fantasy and sci-fi. That said I decided to dip my toe in the pond this time and picked one of two pictures I liked with a couple sleeping in it and wrote 52 words about who I thought they were and hit send. So we'll see if it inspires someone.

It feels like having a baby--you have all these hopes they're going to be fabulous and great when they're born, but you can only sit back and wait for what will be.

Brennan, your story is on my tbr. Hopefully soon I'll get to it.
