Date read January 6,2019Rating 4 5Reread factor 3.5 5The title is what caught my attention on this one, though the blurb was the usual romance plot Brie, the heroine was dumped just before her wedding and she decided to try out fling style dating instead of relationships And that s how the book started.When I began the book, I thought it was the usual run of the mill romance but as I continued I enjoyed the writing style It really added character to the tale and kept me flipping the pages to finish it The language was easy to read and really flowed and was natural At no place, was it forced or artificial That s one point which made me have fun with the playful banter between Brie and Alex The story had the right tone, appropriate to the scenes throughout the tale I loved the fact that the author wrote the book in both Brie s and Alex s POV which made me peek into their innermost thoughts This added to the romantic vibe between the two.Another point which really caught my eye was that the hero, Alex was invested in the relationship, contrary to the usual trope of the heroine falling first in love And I loved him for his patience and sexiness Was he hot Yes I was literally drooling, I tell you Brie felt a bit naive to me and she didn t measure up to Alex in my opinion But as a couple I adored them because of the sweetness And on that point, I wish the author had gone with sweet than steam Yes the romance is again super hot and that kind of put me off a tiny bit because I am getting tired of all the sensual times though it didn t keep me from enjoying the book.I didn t anticipate the twist near the end but it was a pleasant surprise which tied up all the threads of the plot Other thing I didn t like was that the author was using Max and Alex in the former and latter parts of the book I wish she had used only one name throughout the story All in all I relished the read and I would definitely check out her other books if a chance arises.All the thoughts noted are my own and aren t impacted by anything.My one line review A steamy sweet romance with playful banter between the protagonists flag 21 likesLike see review View 1 comment Jan 23, 2019

life At least that s what her friends think In fact, a relationship is the last thing she wants in her life right now, everything that happened left her with no confidence in the opposite sex But according to her friends, what she needs to move on is a lot of casual sex, several one night stands, to just relax and enjoy A pity that in practice, this decision does not go as expected.Max has given up a promising career and today is a bartender as he saves money to start his own business Coming home and finding his fiancee fucking her boss was not his best moment But he s finally single, and may be focusing on himself for a change.Brie and Max share friends in common, and so are known And for a move of fate, the two are finally single at the same time The truth is that Max has always been attracted to her, and now that he can take a chance, she does not want a serious commitment, just fun A role he can play with great pleasure, after all, being close to her, he can make her fall in love, right After all, who would resist his charm It is obvious that this casual arrangement will not last long as the two spend time together, feelings come up, and with a passionate Max and a reluctant Brie, these two will have a long journey to the happy ending.Add lots of funny and cute messages, a hilarious grandmother, a countdown to Sunday, and some perfect dates, and the book will spark romance.A situation in Brie s work will add some tension to the book The villain is predictable, but nothing to disrupt the narrative This whole situation serves to Max shows his side enchanted prince who rescues the damsel in distress.Brie was sometimes a bit annoying Max was perfect Overall, it was a good read, a good novel, light, unpretentious and funny ARC provided in exchange for an

Max was a stand out character to me and although the novel is written in dual POV, Max s chapters captivated me His humour and prose with the way Jennifer wrote his inner dialect just made for an easy enjoyable reading experience.When Brie and Max agree to a friends with benefit s arrangement, I knew things were about to get heated and there was plenty of sauce and heaps of chemistry between our two main characters The growth of the friendship and the banter over text messages, the nuances like nicknames and the element that Max is the one to fall first and work really hard to woo Brie just made me melt.There has to be a special mention for a certain secondary character who I absolutely adored and that is Nana Dorothy My goodness this woman rocked my world, so many laughs reading her scenes and the relationship she has with Max is something special.The storyline although a slow burn, progresses at a steady pace in my opinion, the characters are endearing and the story arc written well enough to hold your attention through until the plot twist comes your way The added drama was a good development and gave a new dimension to Max and Brie.Overall The Dating Alternative was a fantastic read, one I thoroughly recommend and hope to see of this style from Jennifer in the future flag 1 likeLike see review Jan 01, 2019 Miranda Knight rated it really liked it Shelves friends to

though it was perfectly obvious that the whole friends with scheduled benefits thing wasn t going to last long, it made for entertaining reading Max s grandmother was a hoot that woman couldn t have been on the page too much, IMHO She always made me smile.Some aspects of the book required a bit than the usual suspension of belief, though the drama at Brie s work especially I m not an accountant by any stretch of the imagination two college courses not withstanding but it just didn t seem like a terribly realistic situation, nor was it adequately explained in its resolution Max s reasons for staying away from Brie toward the end were than a little ridiculous get over your butt hurt self, dude, and try and see things from someone else s perspective for a change and his career shift felt a bit out of left field The Cheese nickname was cute Brie cheese get it , but seriously overused and OMG should not be used in intimate situations Took me right out of things, every time Still, this was a fun way to spend a few hours The Dating Alternative is a cute friends to lovers story that is a bit predictable at times but a fun read nevertheless It was my first from this author, but probably not my last.Rating 3 1 2 stars B I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. flag Like see review Dec 27, 2018 Loredana rated it really liked it This was one of those books where I was completely sucked in by the synopsis really well written, BTW I even liked the premiseunrequited love becomes after a start at friendship I think where I began to stumble is that my brain didn t

to love automatically And I think there were times when Brie could have let Max in , especially since it made it obvious that he was playing for keeps Yes, I know that many relationships are like this in the real world I guess I thought there would be laughs than what I found for a romantic comedy But don t get me wrong the writing is still good and the story flowed well I think there were some aspects of the character which weren t my cup of teamaybe they ll be yours I am certainly open to trying this author again, so don t let this dissuade you Just make sure you know what type of read you

still nursing a broken heart over her broken engagement When she says she s looking for an alternative to dating, Max offers a once a week fling, no strings attached He s willing to take the little bits that she gives him in their arrangement because he s THAT sure that she is The One.The flirty banter between them is fun and witty, and the excuses that they both come up with to make their Sundays last longer than 24 hours were quite clever It s not long before Brie is also head over heels with Max, but The Conflict happens that prevents her from telling him so And what a twist that was I did not see the event that ripped them apart coming Of course, Max and Cheese work things out for a wonderful HEA that is every bit unorthodox and unique as they are I received an advanced copy and

with Brie and basically laid all his cards on the table on how he felt about her and what he wanted from her And Brie kept an open mind about what he told her When I was reading the last chapter of
