  • A Great Story!

    It is not easy to be a grown up and adulting has many challenges as the heroine Dr. Lauren Dawson knows. Lauren is a complex character in a middle of crossroads in her life, trying to find her own way in a middle of assumed expectations from her family, from her boss, from her ex, and from herself. Lauren became a doctor because that what her mother wanted her to be. She has a low (read no) tolerance for seeing blood, she believes that she has to be in a close company of her family or they are going to be in harm's way and die, she believes all her ex is good for is leaving her behind, she herself is not good at finding solutions for problems or making compromises, she is all or nothing person even though life is often all about finding the middle road. Photographer Tavish Fitzgerald has traveled the world and seen it through his camera lens. The small town he and Lauren grew up in has never been exciting enough for him, but his teenage love, Lauren thought that meant her as well, even though Tavish would have rather traveled the world with her at his side, with him, as his wife. The chemistry between Tavish and Lauren is palpable, nearly a visible force in the tale. I like the honesty and openness they have between them, especially from Tavish's side. Lauren has a lot of issues, she is rather stubborn about them, and at times she frustrated me to no end. Both Tavish and Lauren have doubts about their relationship making it work, not because of their feelings towards each other, but because of their needs to live their lives in a certain way that are in conflict with each other. These questions and misgivings go on all the way towards the end and stayed in my mind as well, making the story very realistic and life-like, and raw enough to make me question the possibility of a happily ever after for Lauren and Tavish. A thought-provoking, well-written, and emotional story about choices we make in life, about responsibilities, career moves, expectations we feel, and about family, relationships, compromises, finding the middle ground, setting priorities, and daring to fall in love and act upon it. Not your typical category romance story, yet entertaining and delightfully provocative in many ways. It has witty dialog and well thought-out characters in an unexpected and awkward situation in life. ~ Four Spoons

  • ...kooky matchmaking and lovable characters.

    Their marriage may have ended, but the love affair was from over. Love takes a holiday and comes back stronger than ever in author Laurel Greer's, From Exes to Expecting. Lauren and Tavish are in for a few surprises as they make their way back to love. We all want to believe in the power of true love. Happily ever after may seem like a fantasy just out of reach, but it's hopeful optimism of authors like Ms. Greer and her motley crew of misfits in love that give us the courage to seek out our own happy ending. Small town romances with their kooky matchmaking and lovable characters are favorites of mine.

  • Just okay

    3 stars — Hmmm…this one was okay, but the characters were frustrating. At the front of the book it said it was Ms. Greer’s debut, so I definitely think her writing and characters have improved over time. I’m going to keep going on this series, b/c at this point I’m curious. But I can’t wait until we get to later books, because these early ones are…well, just okay. Both Lauren and Tavish had their faults, but if I’m being honest, Lauren disappointed me more. I had a hard time connecting with her because we didn’t quite get the full picture of what was going on with her until later in the book. It’s hinted at, for sure, but I had no idea she had so much trauma from family deaths. I feel like it would have helped me connect a bit more with her if I’d known there was a lot behind her life decisions. As it was, she just came across incredibly selfish — she claimed she accepted some of the blame for the demise of her marriage, but her actions didn’t show a willingness to change. She kept expecting more and more compromises from Tavish, even though he was trying, while refusing to make the tiniest compromise herself. I know she probably had a lot of qualities I might otherwise enjoy, but honestly? Her faults overshadowed. She did eventually get there, but it was too late for me to connect. And then there’s Tavish, with his unfortunately stereotypical belief in genetics having more control over his life than he does. I’m sure this happens in real life, but it is definitely a trope I’ve read a lot in romances, and apparently I was less patient with it…I just wanted him to wake up earlier. But at the same time, despite this belief in his own nature, he was still showing that he was willing to try and compromise, and for that reason I liked him more. Together? I don’t know. I guess because they were both so stubborn and fatalistic about their relationship, I had a hard time being excited about them as a couple…and so I didn’t really connect with the steamy scenes as much. But that’s about me as much as anything. I feel like this is such a negative review, but there were bright spots. Just not enough.
