SURE THING by JANA ASTON

Standalone swoony romantic comedy with a sexy Brit boyfriend!

SYNOPSIS

Have you ever set out to have a one night stand with a sexy stranger?
No? I’m the only one?
Just kidding, I would never.
Ever.
Not usually.

But then I figured, why not? My entire life I’ve been good and it’s gotten me nowhere.
No job.
No apartment.
No boyfriend.

I’m owed a little fun, aren’t I? A reward for being good.
Sure, a new pair of shoes would be more appropriate, but Mr. Sexy Stranger is more appealing. And when he speaks—in that British accent—it’s a done deal. Every American woman has a hot British guy fantasy. Well, most do. I haven’t taken a poll or anything, but I’m pretty sure it’s a fact.

Except…
You know that saying about best-laid plans?
Good, because I don’t either, but I assume they go awry.
Like my one night stand…

“Is this real?” I whisper it, meant more for myself than him, but his eyes answer my question; his gaze moves across my face with tenderness before a, “Yes” is pressed onto my lips.

We were a bit late to the Jana Aston party, only sampling her work in the short story, Times Square which we both thoroughly enjoyed. And whilst it may have been a little taste, it was enough to have us swooning big time over her male hero and ensuring we were desperate to read more of her titillating, sweet, swoony, feel-good and very sexy stories.

Jumping on the chance to review, Sure Thing, we once again fell head over heels for her hero. Seriously, Jana Aston writes a gorgeous book boyfriend that’s for sure and this time around it was the sexy, swoony delectable Brit boyfriend, Jennings Anderson who made us weak at the knees. Can we take a minute to appreciate all that is Jennings…right down to his talented tongue and sexy dirty mouth…..oh good grief, that mouth of his! We died!

‘Such a gentleman. Such a filthy, dirty gentleman.’

There are times when you need to escape everything around you, and immerse yourself in something that makes your heart happy, filling it with warmth and Sure Thing was exactly that. This book came at the right time and satiated our mood perfectly.

The Brit humour was spot on, the banter between Jennings and Violet was giggle inducing – we loved the dry wit that came so easily to both characters. Nothing felt forced. And the chemistry…wooahh!!! That…and the sex was off the charts! What started as a one night stand soon turned into a lust and need for repeat performances and what performances they were! Talk about a standing ovation…Jennings hit all the spots…and more! Forget about the G Spot…he found the woooweee spot! Time and time again! So posh yet so delectably dirrrty when he wants to be.

‘I love women. I love taking them to dinner. Walking them to their door. Caressing their cheeks as I cup their jaws and kiss them before they invite me inside. Most of all, I love fucking them. I love discovering what gets the wet. What causes their breath to hitch and their toes to curl.’

Twenty six year old Violet needs an adventure! She needs spontaneity. Violet is the thinker, her sister Daisy is the doer. Violet decides she needs to follow Daisy’s lead and decides on a one night stand, and the hot thirty six year guy at the bar looked like the perfect candidate…and when he opened his mouth with that Brit accent…Violet was a goner! The outcome of their meeting is hilarious, sweet and sexy all rolled into one.

‘Do not let me down. You are my first one night stand, don’t be my last. Don’t be the reason I give up entirely and take up knitting and invest in a vibrator collection. Don’t be….Never mind.’

Sure Thing gave us a bit of drama, a couple of twists and a great day of reading. We honestly didn’t want to put this down as we wanted to immerse ourselves in everything Jennings and Violet, two wonderful characters who were perfect for each other, but due to a few little secrets they’re both hiding, their path to a happily might get a little rocky. We’d recommend this book in a heartbeat! Fabulously funny, sizzlingly sexy, wonderfully warm and enjoyably entertaining!

“Daisy.” I say softly and wait for her eyes to return to mine. “You’re the most fun I’ve ever had.”

Oh and pssst…Jana Aston, we’d LOVE Daisy’s story..juss saying’.

LOVE IN TRANSIT by VARIOUS AUTHORS

Find out what happens when you give six authors the SAME blurb and they write their OWN story.

SYNOPSIS

You know those people that have a house full of motivational slogans? Embrace Every Moment, stamped on their coffee mugs. Always Kiss Me Goodnight painted above their perfectly made beds.

I’m not one of those people.

This morning I overslept, then slipped on a stray sock and banged my toe into the nightstand. The elevator in my building broke and I had to run down six flights of stairs. And then my local coffee shop was closed. For health code violations.

What’s that? Not the end of the world? You want me to suck it up?

Did I mention I’m wearing a wedding dress… on the subway?

It’s a Good Day for a Hot Mess.

Someone embroider that on a pillow.

Love In Transit is a fabulous unique idea which grabbed our attention the moment we saw how six Authors each wrote a novella with the same synopsis, the cover is gorgeous too! We managed to inhale a few of the stories which were deliciously different and well written. Without question we highly recommend picking this book up if you’re a romantic at heart and you’re looking for short sharp romantic, emotional and sexy hits that without question will each satisfy a lunch hour read or commute.  So, jump on board- wedding dress optional!

Times Square

‘Is there anything sexier than a man absorbed in a book? Not to this self-confessed book nerd there isn’t.’

Well, Jana Aston just satisfied our book loving hearts. Firstly, we have to admit it was our first time with Jana but what a fabulous first time it was. We laughed and swooned in equal measure. It was quick witted, very book-ish (if you read it you’ll know what we mean) and sexy. Loved it!

Wall Street Station

‘To save an angel, I prepare to make a deal with the devil.’

Liv Morris gave us her own version of a sweet fairy-tale mixed with poignant moments of ‘Pretty Woman’. So much packed into this one, which was a more emotional read; we swooooooned and fell in love!

The Hammersmith & City Line

“What’s so funny?”

“You’re wearing a really shit wedding dress on The Tube.”

Kitty French gave us….well Kitty French; and as we love her we inhaled her dirty and quirky reality TV romp with laugh out loud moments! LOVED this one.

Capitol South

‘My heart requires more time to heal before I try to open it up to another person.’

Raine Miller brought us pomp and grace with a real personal romantic touch. A swoony romance ultimately borne out of an upper class family commitment. Loved it.
