    I'm all for unexpected heroines. Snarky, rumpled, shy, awkward ... bring them on. But I felt that this book was a real mismatch of cover and story. I downloaded this expecting to get a sweet, romantic wedding story. Instead, I got a first chapter set back in high school where the ma...

    While I definitely liked Nicole McLaughlin?s first book in this series, ?Maybe This Time? was a different kettle of fish unfortunately. Perhaps what made it worse was that I?d been wanting TJ to find his HEA particularly after pining after someone who absolutely didn?t deserv...

    Jen MacKenzie is your typical girl from the wrong side of the tracks, living in a bad apartment, no full-time job, drowning in debt, tattoos, no college education. She was poor but happy teaching theatre in a local community college until the funding ran out, now she's juggling two par...

    TJ's woman just frustrates him at times, "he slammed his hands down to his sides, hard enough to hold the covers down tight so that she could see the bulge below his waist. ?This is the result of waking up next to you. Obviously, there is nothing repulsive about that idea.? TJ is n...

    TJ has had a crush on Jen since high school. With Jen's scrappy,resilient personality is there even a chance of a romance between her and TJ? Her mother is battling cancer, she loses her dream job and she is really struggling financially. Her life's choices are starting to catch up wit...

    I almost did not finish this one because Jen rubbed me the wrong way. I don?t think the author planned to create a character that was so judgmental and whiney (I hope) and this could be a case of ?It?s not you but me? here but she was not an heroine I could root for. The sto...

    Physically speaking, Jen was this vibrant burst of color with her clothes and her tattoos. Yet her personality was extremely prickly-especially with TJ. I mean talk about having a chip on the shoulder! Jen had that in spades. Like massive chip. Between mommy issues and berating the one...

    Wow, someone has a chip on their shoulder. I think Jen was supposed to be a sympathetic character because her mother has cancer, she lost her dream job and she?s barely scraping by financially, but that aforementioned chip ruined everything. Because Jen feels incredibly hard done by,...

    This is the second book in the Whiskey and Weddings Series. Jen has had a hard life growing up on the wrong side of town and developed a hard shell around her heart. In high school she was the odd one. Until the entire school found out she had a talent. All she wants is to act and...

    I found this second book in the Whiskey and Weddings series tough to review. While I enjoyed most of the story and really liked TJ and even the secondary characters, I often had a tough time liking Jen. Jen's personality at times was just too difficult to like. And while she had a toug...

    What a great story! This is the first time I have read anything by Nicole McLaughlin, but I'm sure it won't be the last. I get a bit nervous reading a book by an author I don't know, but I was hooked from the very first page. While I closed the book several times to try to get some s...

    Maybe This Time by Nicole McLaughlin was my book choice for this week'sOne Wicked Romance a Weekreading challenge feature. What can I say? I'm a sucker for enemies-to-lovers, bad girl good guy tropes. Even though this is part of a series, this is standalone. Fans of Nicole McLa...

    This is a straightforward romance about whether or not to sleep with the boss. Unfortunately the boss is male and the lady is struggling, so nothing new to be found. A nice touch for depth is that our heroine is helping her mother fight cancer, with all the difficulties, loyalty issu...

    A sweet contemporary romance about getting a second chance on your forever love. Jen comes from a family struggling to get by, T.J. Comes from a well to do family. He is afraid she'll eject him as his youth was not as it seemed and she believes he looks down on her. They work in ...

    3.5 Stars How often do we hear ?Don?t judge a book by its cover?? But the thing is, a cover does give you an idea what the tone of a book is going to be. Going by the cover of this book, I got something way different than what I was expecting. In fact, I started reading this...

    I loved this book! I remember that I had some problems with the first book because although I loved the story and the author?s writing, I didn?t like the male character a lot, Dean. I felt that he dithered to much, with his hangup that he was twelve years older than Charlotte. In t...

    Maybe This Time by Nicole McLaughlin was my book choice for this week'sOne Wicked Romance a Weekreading challenge feature. What can I say? I'm a sucker for enemies-to-lovers, bad girl good guy tropes. Even though this is part of a series, this is standalone. Fans of Nicole McLa...

    Maybe This Time by Nicole McLaughlin was such a sweet, even at times a bit frustrating, second chance romance of sorts. Jen Mackenzie could be frustrating at times, but she was also fighting to be strong and independent. Her choices have not always been the best, but she likes to t...

    I enjoyed this read by this Author! I fell in love with the characters, setting, friends-- and the second chance at love romance! And that ending.... SIGH!!! I LOVED IT!!!!! I look forward to reading more by this Author!! 4 stars from me. Recv'd a copy via NetGalley in exch...

    This is a straightforward romance about whether or not to sleep with the boss. Unfortunately the boss is male and the lady is struggling, so nothing new to be found. A nice touch for depth is that our heroine is helping her mother fight cancer, with all the difficulties, loyalty issu...

    A sweet contemporary romance about getting a second chance on your forever love. Jen comes from a family struggling to get by, T.J. Comes from a well to do family. He is afraid she'll eject him as his youth was not as it seemed and she believes he looks down on her. They work in ...

    3.5 Stars How often do we hear ?Don?t judge a book by its cover?? But the thing is, a cover does give you an idea what the tone of a book is going to be. Going by the cover of this book, I got something way different than what I was expecting. In fact, I started reading this...

    I loved this book! I remember that I had some problems with the first book because although I loved the story and the author?s writing, I didn?t like the male character a lot, Dean. I felt that he dithered to much, with his hangup that he was twelve years older than Charlotte. In t...

    ARC REVIEW Whiskey and Weddings #2, First off the cover does not match the story. It just seems way to conventional for the free spirited Jen with her dyed hair and tattoos. The story was okay it was entertaining, I loved Jen, in high school we probably would have been friends and ...

    I'm all for unexpected heroines. Snarky, rumpled, shy, awkward ... bring them on. But I felt that this book was a real mismatch of cover and story. I downloaded this expecting to get a sweet, romantic wedding story. Instead, I got a first chapter set back in high school where the ma...

    Jen MacKenzie is your typical girl from the wrong side of the tracks, living in a bad apartment, no full-time job, drowning in debt, tattoos, no college education. She was poor but happy teaching theatre in a local community college until the funding ran out, now she's juggling two par...

    TJ's woman just frustrates him at times, "he slammed his hands down to his sides, hard enough to hold the covers down tight so that she could see the bulge below his waist. ?This is the result of waking up next to you. Obviously, there is nothing repulsive about that idea.? TJ is n...

    TJ has had a crush on Jen since high school. With Jen's scrappy,resilient personality is there even a chance of a romance between her and TJ? Her mother is battling cancer, she loses her dream job and she is really struggling financially. Her life's choices are starting to catch up wit...

    I almost did not finish this one because Jen rubbed me the wrong way. I don?t think the author planned to create a character that was so judgmental and whiney (I hope) and this could be a case of ?It?s not you but me? here but she was not an heroine I could root for. The sto...
