Review: Cole and Jillian by Jennifer Peel

Heidi Reads... Cole and Jillian by Jennifer Peel

My rating: 4 stars / I really liked it


Can a few hours really change your life?

Jillian Jones knows a thing or two about the country music scene, and she wants no part of it after divorcing her country singer ex-husband. But as fate would have it, she’s seated next to country legend Cole Pendleton on a red-eye flight home to Nashville from Las Vegas. Between her emotional state, her fear of flying, and maybe a little vodka, she finds herself taking comfort in Cole’s arms and lips during their four-hour flight.

Cole Pendleton’s life changes the night he wakes up to his beautiful seatmate, Jillian. He doesn’t know what it is about her, but he’s drawn to her like no one before. As the night wears on he’s determined to do whatever it takes to get to know her better. He finds himself promising her he’ll come looking for her once they’re both ready to move forward with a relationship. But he has two problems, his profession and his past.

Jillian finds herself wanting to believe him, but can she trust his midnight promises? Or will the piano man be like her ex-husband and let his promises fade away in the light of day?

My Review

This is a fun story with plenty of emotion as Jillian is torn between her attraction to Cole and her fears of his past and career that stem from her past. I loved their chemistry and Cole's patience with her as he shows her that he can be trusted, one day at a time. I could really sense Jillian's conflict between hurt and hope... and Cole had enough hope for the both of them! I loved how he pursued her when the time was right. It was great to see Call from the previous book in the series as Jillian's best friend and the support and encouragement she gives Jillian. We also get to see Call's relationship with Beck progress and her music career begin to blossom. Rest assured that this is a clean romance- the term "midnight promises" doesn't have to do with the bedroom ;) This story seemed to move much more quickly than the first two in the series and there was a lot of Jillian rehashing her issues, but since it's written in first person it felt more like an inner monologue so it didn't bother me as much as if it had been in third person. Overall, completely enjoyable and I recommend this entire series to fans of clean contemporary romance!

(Thank you to the author for a copy of the book; this is my honest review)

Jaime Seger has two goals in life: marry her best friend, the man that owns her heart and soul, and buy her very own grand piano. But Christopher McKay, who has no idea Jaime's been in love with him since she was eleven years old, never gets the memo and marries someone else.

When Christopher's wife dies, Jamie finds herself helping him raise his young daughter. A year later, she is on the other end of a very unlikely proposal, promising everything she thought she ever wanted.

But will Christopher help Jaime finally realize both of her dreams, or will she only be left with broken promises?

My rating: 5 stars / It was amazing

What happens when a dashing Englishman and an almost famous pianist collide? Sparks. And lots of them.
Call’s life always seems to be on the cusp of working out, only to unravel at the last moment. For instance, when she meets the guy. The man she’s been fantasizing about from afar. The one who walks his beautiful Siberian husky around her neighborhood. Their first meeting is nothing like she hoped; in fact, she wishes she never met him.

Charles Beckett is in need of a good dog-sitter, but he gets more than he bargained for when a cheeky American bartender shows up at his house fifteen minutes late. The job interview quickly turns into a sparring match and Call leaves vowing to run him over with her truck the next time she sees him.

It’s up to their dogs now to bring the pair together.

Will Call finally have one of her dreams come true? Or will the Englishman be another checkmark in her long list of unrealized promises?
