This is without a doubt my new favourite Jaime Clevenger novel. From the moment the book began I was hooked… I couldn’t put it down.
Julia is a work-a-holic that doesn’t think she is good at relationships. She and her two friends embark on a holiday to Hawaii and while sitting on the plane she meets the most handsome passenger, Reed. Only problem is that Reed is travelling with her twin daughter’s and Julia is not into kids… at all! As the holiday unfolds they both get tangled up together and Julia begins to bond with not only Reed but also the kids. They know that it’s no longer just a holiday romance and decide that a no-strings relationship would work best for them when they return home. But the more time spent together with the kids, the more invested everyone gets, especially Julia… Hearts may be broken!
Well this book was amazing. Honestly I couldn’t put it down from the first chapter. Three Reasons to Say Yes is written solely from Julia’s point of view and what a view on her life she has. Many of my blog readers know I am not a massive fan of one protagonist point of views but in this instance it worked perfectly.
Firstly (and this might be the mum in me talking) I want to say that the two little girls in this book stole my heart from the first chapter. Both kids are very different but very lovable in their own ways. I had some serious laugh out loud moments when they had page time. I also understood the pull Julia felt toward both children… no one stood a chance against them.
Secondly…Reed! Reed was major swoon material and definitely sits on my top ten all time favourite butch characters. She was hot, butch and such a good mum to both her kids… It was hard not to fall for her so I got Julia’s feelings and all the reasons (more than three) she wanted to be with Reed.
The chemistry between Julia and Reed is off the chart and the sex scenes left nothing to be desired. I keep thinking it couldn’t get any hotter then bang… it totally did.
Lastly the secondary characters of Mo and Kate (Julia’s best friends) left me wanting more. I mean these two had clear underlying feelings but Jaime Clevenger leaves every moment with them open and I just craved more from them. The hurrah part of the book was when I heard there is to be a sequel and these characters will get their day… not sure if it will be happy ever after but I’m already dying to get my hands on it.
It ain’t over for these protagonists just yet… major win for this reader!
All in all this book has the potential to be my book of the year. Truely, books like this don’t come around often that suit my reading tastes to a tee.
Unequivocally 5 stars.
