I was quite disappointed with this book. It had so much potential, but unfortunately was filled with lots of little bits of drama, far too many uninspiring sex scenes and just not quite enough emotional depth.

Amber has had her heart broken.. Not just broken but stomped on too! Craig has a huge secret that he just doesn't find right time to tell her.
They have loyal besties that are there through it all with emotional support & friendship.
When Amber & Craig get together it is an instant attraction that slowly develops into love! There is just the right amount of romance, steam & angst to keep you hooked from beginning to end.
This book has moments that make you want to shake some sense into both Amber & Craig, it has moments that will make you want to slap them upside the head & it has moments that make you go aaahhhhh!!
If you love a good romance that has the right amount of everything then this is for you!
E.J Shortall has written a beautiful sexy love story & I can't wait to see what she gives us next!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read 10 April 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was just what I needed after a string of not so great books, I mean I finished this….I really finished it!! I put down everything I HAD to read and picked this up. I needed a good book to pull me out of the slump. Recommended to me by a friend this was a great little read.

I liked this couple together, Craig was your normal hero, good looking, rich, all around nice guy and perfect. He had his fair share of secrets and drama, but was real in the way he talked and how he reacted to things, he was good for Amber and just what he needed. Amber got on my wick a bit, I got her insecurities, hell I have some of them, and I get it she had trust issues, with good reason and I did like her but like I said she just got on my nerves a bit.

It was predictable and I saw what was coming well ahead of time but that’s ok, I didn’t need to be shocked and surprised by this, I found the pacing spot on, I liked that there was no fluffing around. They liked each other and let it flow for the most part. It was well written, funny and the world building was great. The sexy bits were well…sexy and plentiful, but not over done to the point of gross.

So yeah, I am well invested in this series now and I can’t wait for the next one! I am really looking forward to seeing how Amber grows as a woman.

If you are looking for a nice romance that isn’t dark or twisted then look no further if you are looking for a feel-good love story then this is the book for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly Sweet Story and Debut! 21 February 2014
By Karen Peacock - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved this debut novel and first book in a series by E.J. Shortall! This story is full of heartache, passion and ultimately love. E. J. created beautiful characters that you can totally relate to in many ways. She has a way of picking you up and transporting you into her story and you can so easily get lost in her characters. Her secondary characters Becki and Scott are also very integral to the story. They add an element of humor that has you laughing throughout!

Craig is a tall drink of water and the sexual chemistry between both Craig and Amber is very hot. There are lots of sexy moments throughout this book. Even though this book is part of a series, it does not have a cliffhanger at the end of this first book. It does however leave you wondering where the story is going to go.

If you love a sweet love story filled with passion, then this is the story for you. I am looking forward to more from this author in the future!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ready for the sequel! 6 April 2014
By ReadingMama - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Wow. What can I say about this fabulous read? For starters, I think I may have a new book boyfriend! This has got to be the best romance I've read yet from an Indie author. The story drew me in from the start, and the flow and pacing kept me hooked so well that I finished the book in a single sitting. Long, but single.

Ok, item of note. This author is British. The book is set in London. Why do I bring this up? Because it means that British English is used here. Words are spelled differently than our Americanized version. And you know what? I love that, and they should be. I bring it up so none of you start citing typos when there are none.

This story is all about taking chances and starting over. Amber and Craig drew me in and made me connect with them, even if some of those times I wanted to throttle them both. The point is, I FELT for them. I felt about them. That, my friends, is the mark of a successful story.

Sex? Yes please! This book had several steamy scenes and I devoured each and every one of them. They were hot, but they were tasteful. I never felt like rolling my eyes due to lewd descriptions or vulgar (in my humble opinion at least) words. Each scene I was simply left thinking — “Ohhhh yeah…!”

I am looking forward to reading the second installment of this story so I can get more of these characters. Speaking of which, I wanted to add that I absolutely adored the secondary characters in this novel. I totally want a best friend like Becki. She was full of her own quirks and personalities without coming across as overbearing or annoying.

I can honestly say without a doubt that this is a book I can give 5 Stars. Thanks so much for sharing this story with us EJ!!!!!

**I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review**

5.0 out of 5 stars Love can be the healing your heart needs. 6 April 2014
By The Book Fairy Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was refreshing and Beautiful to read. I give it the full *5* Stars. Fate has a huge rile to pkay in this story Fate and determination. When you have 2 hearts that are instantly attracted to each other that they keep meeting in the most unlikely places then you know that something greater is at play.
Craig and Amber have had to overcome some big scars that have left them unable to wither TRUST or LOVE again. But because they are so drawn to each other they have no choice but to let their hearts rule.
The story was well written and I found myself quickly drawn in. I found myself totally engrossed in the plot and fighting right alongside with amber for the one that could heal her heart. Her hero in so many ways, she learns that Craig is looking for that hero as well. I loved that this book had the happy ending I was craving that will tide me over to the next installment. I can't wait for it to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silver Lining 28 April 2014
By Denise Van plew - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a wonderful depiction put into a novel brought to life of someone's silver lining. It takes alot of talent to be able to create and enable me the reader to visualize this as this author has done using the two characters Amber and Craig. She also has some fantastic friends that travel on this life changing journey with her. After having come out of a disastrous relationship that almost resulted into marriage and having sworn off men-a woman's famous last words most times-she embarks on her own. Soon though her best friend wants to come out and play right away and will not take no for a answer with her on again off man Scott. At the club is where she first sees him and her friend calls him Mr. Sexy which by the way is he ever. Before night is over she ends up dancing with him and little do they both realize it right then their lives will not be the same again. With one thing and another they have encountered each once more at game of Scott's then the day comes at school when she looks up there he is talking to her class and she finally learns his real name. Craig has a successful business and would like to discuss more than just business asking her to dinner. That is the start of a thrilling ride two people take with each and me the reader journey's along with them. The relationship that builds between these two is more than half the enjoyment of the reading in this novel the way these two are with each other. Amber who has a hard time at first soon gives in to her feelings the strong character she is not letting the jerk of a ex keep her from love. The best friend says it best in her description with the line silver lining. But of course no relationship is worth its salt reading if there are not some rocks along the way which due to some very important info Craig and others do not tell Amber will cause her to take a big fall down the rabbit hole taking awhile for her to come out of it. Thank goodness before that happened there was alot of fire and love in this relationship even surviving the jabs the ex of hers tried a time or two. The complexities of a honest to goodness relationship given here were wonderfully written that you flowed along right with them laughing when they laughed, crying when she cried. As I said earlier wonderful example of a silver lining especially when you read the last of this novel with the outcome of what happened once she came out of her hole. But was this the final call for these two no way should of known story this good is not quite over yet.
