    Excellent

    A fabulous friends to lovers story that was very entertaining and left me smiling! Jack and Cami have known each other for years and have been highly attracted to each other. Unfortunately, the timing has always been wrong. Now they find themselves both single at the same time and living right next door to each other. The problem? Jack is Cami's brother-in-law's best friend so if things go badly it could be awkward and stressful. Add to that the fact that Cami's sister is adamant that Jack is a player and not for someone like Cami. Would the reward be worth the risks?? This one was very well done and I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

    Lovely warmhearted romance

    This lovely warmhearted romance is the story of Jack and Cami, now neighbours but friends for the last six years due to family connections. They've always shared an attraction for each other but due to other relationships were never free to pursue it - until now, when they find themselves both available. Is it finally their turn to see if their fantasies will live up to reality? I really enjoyed this story. Jack and Cami were both warm, friendly people harbouring this secret attraction for each other and willing to finally put it out there. Jack makes the first move and Cami is receptive, though a bit wary of Jack's playboy past and keeping it a secret from her twin sister who is married to Jack's best friend and knows how he operates. The chemistry between them is evident from the start and leads to several sweet and sexy love scenes. The author has the knack of making you feel like you are really in the story, with a well described setting of a small town in October. There isn't a lot of angst in the story, and though some of the scenes are emotional the overall feeling is lighthearted. The ending felt a bit rushed to me which is what made me give it a 4 instead of a 5 star rating - I would have liked to have seen it drawn out a bit more. Overall though, a lovely and entertaining read.

    Sweet friends to lovers story

    Convincing Cami is a sweet story of friends turning into lovers. I really enjoyed meeting Cami and Mikki (her twin). Mikki typically serves as Cami's conscience and her sounding board, but the nature of Cami's struggles in this story prevents her from turning to her sister. Cami is a bit of a neurotic, however, and her past relationship failures have left her skittish about getting involved - and she takes that a bit too far. Despite Jack's reassurances of his feelings for her, Cami is constantly questioning whether his feelings are real, and whether her feelings are real. Jack demonstrates amazing patience while Cami works through her doubts. As the reader, it was a bit difficult to understand why Cami is experiencing her neuroses to the degree that she is, because we aren't given much background on any relationships other than her most recent. It makes her reticence seem a bit overblown. I really love Jack as a character - he is strong but sensitive, knows what he wants and isn't afraid to go after he. He makes his intentions towards Cami clear and is quite intent on his pursuit of her, and it makes for a enjoyable story. Jack truly spent most of the book Convincing Cami that his feelings for her were real! My biggest concern with the book is that it has an extremely abrupt ending. While all of the questions were answered and the situations and concerns resolved, the book felt very unfinished with the way it ended so harshly. It's almost like the author felt like being done, so all of the loose ends were tied up and then "The End". If ever a book was in need of another chapter, or at least an epilogue, it was this book. The book needs a smoother path to the end than it currently has. I'm happy that Cami and Jack find their happily ever after in the end, but felt cut off by the extent to which the ending felt sudden. Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Sweet Read.

    I am new to Babette James and have read three of her books so far(Kissing Katie, Convincing Cami and Love Burns). Despite that I have come to the conclusion that each book read by her is like interacting with an old friend. Through her storytelling she makes the reader comfortable with the story and characters. Comfortable enough that although you just met them, it seems like you have known them forever. Convincing Cami embodies the feeling of small town family and friends getting together and reminiscing. This story takes the reader back to a more simple time of first loves, first kiss and a simpler way of life. I love that even though Ms. James characters have to face life's problems, they do so knowing that they have close family and friends guiding them along the way. I received a copy of Convincing Cami for an honest review.
