Jennifer Ryder

Erotic Romance/ Romantic Suspense

Publication Date
February 28, 2014

Not many people know that I, Eevie Lawson, have a problem. An addiction to romance novels. I
eat them for breakfast. I hide it the best I can, but I need them to breathe. It’s how I cope.

I’ve had a swag of book boyfriends, but now that I’m free from the responsibility of caring for
my three younger brothers, it’s time to find one in the flesh.

In real life, no girl meets their hero on page one, or even at the end of chapter one. I should

My journey is real. It’s not perfect, and it sure as hell isn’t easy—but the fight for something
worthwhile never is.

I have no idea where to begin with this review! My brain is still trying to recover from the O.M.G and process exactly what I need to write here!!!

The first thought that pops into my mind is "good things come to those who wait", and boy does that statement cover Eevie completely!!!
She's far from your normal twenty year old.  She's overcome so much. A sick mum. Having to take over all of her mother's duties and looking after her 3 brothers. Losing her best friend because he's a douche, (lol its true) and being treated like a toy by an ex.  
Any other twenty year old would've been running for the hills, but not Eevie.  Her one escape is her "book boyfriends" and she longs for one of her very own.

But she's eventually moved out on her own, and finally started living. An accomplishment she's very proud of.
Its during this time that she meets Aidan Stone, her room mates boyfriend's friend.  He's a cabinet maker by profession and a motor cross rider, a sport he hopes to take up professionally and a super hottie.  

Her favourite book boyfriends come to life.  When they meet they're both in relationships, but that doesn't stop her from fantasying about him. virgin or not.
They eventually hook up, at the right time and for the right reasons, and Eevie finally gets her dream first time with her dream man.

This book has it all - everything a great book should have.
  • A wonderful story line.
  • Characters you can relate to.
  • Sexual Tension.
  • Steamy hot love scenes.
  • Laughter.
  • Tears.
  • Friendship
  • Love.
  • Drama. 
  • Life changing problems.
I can so relate to Eevie, I see bits of myself in her. Having to deal with things that I were way beyond my years.  The only place I could feel safe was with my nose in a book.  At least for that time I could forget about my problems and be someone else.  Its where my love of romance novels came from - being in a world where the only problems you faced were whether you could fall in love with before the end of the book!!!

Its a feel good story you wont be able to put down that will leave you wanting more.  Thank goodness this is the first book in a 3 book series, because i definatly want more Aidan and Eevie. And I'll be recommending it to everyone as a definate must read!!!!

This was the first book I've read of Jennifer Ryder's and if future books are judged by this, I'm hooked for life.  It was absolutely awesome!

***** out of 5 stars, for being an over-all feeling good love story. Can't wait for the next one Jennifer!

A sexy imagination, a life-long love of books and a sucker for romance, Jennifer Ryder couldn't
stifle her creativity any longer.

Writing steamy adult romance has become her new focus. Living on a rural property in New
South Wales, Australia, she enjoys the best of city and country.

Her loving husband is ever willing to provide inspiration, and her two young cherubs, and sheep
that don't see fences as barriers, keep life more than interesting.
