REVIEW and SPECIAL PRICE- Between the Sheets (The Between Boyfriends Series) by Sarka-Jonae Miller!!

BTSPre-order this book today for the special price of $2.99!! This wonderful chick-lit will be released on Valentine’s Day!! The first book Between Boyfriends was just named a finalist in the MARSocial Author of the Year Competition!!

Book Description:

It’s been three years since 25-year-old Jan Weston swore off men, and her resolve isn’t what it used to be. When a family emergency diverts her travel companion to LA, a fun semester abroad in Bangkok turns into a lonely trip for one. Although she’s supposed to be studying international business at Thammasat University along with Thai massage at the famous Wat Pho, Jan finds herself studying her teacher, especially his cute butt.

But she isn’t just hot for teacher. Jan also meets an athletic Italian ready to show her a good time and an artistic Thai man who says all the right things. Can she resist the allure of dating abroad? Could she even choose which of the three she wants between the sheets? And if she does give in, can what happens in Bangkok stay in Bangkok?

As Jan struggles to finish her education amidst so many distractions, she must also deal with the loss of a friend, a deep betrayal, and news of a death in the family that could lead to an overdue reconciliation. Between The Sheets is a sensual story of making mistakes, overcoming obstacles, and finding love in the strangest of places.

MY THOUGHTS:

So we meet back up with Jan about 3 years after the first book, Between Boyfriends. She has remained true to her no dating rule. She and Becki are getting ready to study abroad for a semester in Thailand! At the last minute Becki’s grandmother has a stroke and Becki dashes home to be with her. Becki ends up having to stay behind to care for her grandmother, and Jan is left to go to Thailand ALONE! Jan thought it would be a fantastic idea when she wasn’t going alone!

At first in Thailand Jan battles depression and the urge to run home. She sticks it out and becomes close with her tutor and struggles with a wicked crush on her massage instructor.

She sticks it out and has some AMAZING experiences – both good and not so good. I assure you that you will desperately want to visit this country by the time you finish this book! The descriptions of the people, places, and way of life are captivating.

This story was a great follow-up to Between Boyfriends and I sincerely hope we get to hear about Jan and her friends for a LONG LONG time! They are so real, and deal with real issues!

REVIEW and TOUR STOP – Between Boyfriends by Sarka-Jonae Miller

BB s3At first glance, twenty-one-year-old Jan Weston has it all: a gorgeous boyfriend, fun friends, and wealthy parents who take care of all those pesky credit card bills.

Then her boyfriend dumps her, her friendships fall apart, and her parents cut her off. Suddenly without money, without a man, and without a plan, it’s time for Jan to grow up.

 Determined to get her life back on track, Jan decides it’s time to make it on her own. Can she find her way as a single lady in San Diego? Can she fix her friendships, her job prospects, and her hair? And can she keep her vow that she’ll never date again, even after she meets a guy who just might be perfect for her?

BETWEEN BOYFRIENDS is a sexy, hilarious story of living life, finding love, and growing up… but not necessarily in that order.

 Between Boyfriends new cover

I am so excited to be reviewing this book from Sarka-Jonae Miller!  I have been hearing about it and I was thrilled to get the chance to read it.  I just knew she would be a fabulous writer!

In the beginning of this book you are ready to roll your eyes at Jan and how whiney and immature she is.  This book is no holds barred when it comes to revealing Jan’s thoughts both good and bad.  We all have uncharitable thoughts that we would never actually say out loud, but still think them.

I absolutely loved following Jan through her humbling journey in the book.  I couldn’t wait to see where she ended up, if she would grow a conscience and start treating people decently.  I am happy to say she did……eventually….. :-)

This book takes you through her struggle to learn to fend for herself and the friends that were harsh when they needed to be and helped her get back on her feet.  I am so excited for the next book in this series to see where it goes from here, because I have a feeling that it will be even better!  This book does not have a cliffhanger, per se, but the story is definitely not over.  It has that nice wrap up with the possibility for bigger and better things!

Praise for Between Boyfriends
“This book is the ultimate chick-lit read–a light-hearted romp focused on the travails of Jan, a college student dumped by her boyfriend, an SDSU student. The moment proves an epiphany, as Jan resolves to stop dating and find fulfillment as a single woman.” – East County Magazine
Between Boyfriends “presents a unique twist on the chick lit genre.” – Hollywood & Vine magazine”Over the course of the book, Jan, who is in her early 20s, begins to grow as a person and even strikes up a true friendship with a man, a first for her.” – Rancho Santa Fe Review“Cut off by parents? Not got a boyfriend? That’s the formula for a chick lit hit.” – Indie Author Land

“The book teaches both subtle and obvious lessons about friendship, relationships, responsibility and decision-making.” – The Masquerade Crew
“Between Boyfriends is a delicious slice of chick-lit! Snappy dialogue sets this story apart from the pack as it follows a young woman who, financially cut off by her parents when she fails to attend school, learns that life is more than her Amex card, and reunites with a mother who has endured her own brand of pain.” – Jan Moran, bestselling author
“BETWEEN BOYFRIENDS is a great read. It’s got everything you’d expect in a chick-lit book: good friends, fun, and a little romance, but the thing Sarka-Jonae adds to this story is a journey.” – Caroline Fardig, bestselling author
I personally can’t wait to get my hands on this book!  I am quite sure you will see a review sometime in the near future!! :-)

Here is how you get it!!!
