  • Abby Jimenez Has Done It Again!

    Abby Jimenez has done it again! She continues to amaze me by writing the most wonderfully relatable characters and stories that are not only heartfelt and emotional, but also laugh out loud hilarious. After reading The Friend Zone (which is one of my top reads ever!) I could not wait to get back to this world. The Happy Ever After Playlist can definitely be read as a standalone, but it would probably be best enjoyed after reading The Friend Zone, since characters from that book appear and that is where our heroine, Sloan, was originally introduced. One of my favorite things about Abby Jimenez’s writing is her phenomenal dialogue and banter. It is brilliantly witty and so perfectly placed to bring levity to the more difficult scenes and moments. Not every author can grab your heart in a vise one moment and then have you gasping for breath from laughing so hard the next, but Jimenez does it with ease. I don’t want to be too spoilery, but The Happy Ever After Playlist starts off with one of the most epic meet-cutes. It sets in motion a story that will have you swooning, laughing, shedding a few tears, and will leave you with a huge smile on your face. A fun feature of the book is that each chapter lists a song to set the tone and mood for what’s to come. It really enhanced the emotions and experience for me and certain songs will forever be tied to those moments now. (You can find the full book playlist on Spotify and Apple Music.) I really enjoyed getting to know this new cast of characters, but also seeing some old favorites as well. Fans of The Friend Zone will love catching up with Josh and Kristen (Gah! I love them so much!) and new readers will get to experience the magic that is uniquely Kristen. One character that stole the show every time he was on the page though was Tucker. Honestly, if you aren’t in love with him by the end, I’m pretty sure you’re a monster. The Happy Ever After Playlist is more than a romance. It’s a story about choosing happiness and being true to yourself. Even if you haven't read The Friend Zone (Seriously, if you haven't, WHY??? Do it! It's amazing!) you will still love Sloan's emotional and heartwarming story! My heart is so incredibly full after finishing this book!

  • Adorable, funny, and heartfelt!

    The Happy Ever After Playlist is an amusing, heartwarming tale that takes us into the life of the vulnerable, grief-stricken Sloan Monroe as she struggles to move on from the heartwrenching loss of her fiance, endeavours to babysit a stray dog with a mind of his own, and navigates the ups and downs of falling in love with a rock star. The prose is effortless and polished. The characterization is spot on with a cast of characters that are quirky, fun-loving, wary, and supportive. And the plot is an irresistible blend of humour, heart, hope, tender moments, family, friendship, tension, attraction, chemistry, self-discovery, happiness, taking chances, and the healing power of pets. Overall, The Happy Ever After Playlist is pure magic. Jimenez’s debut, The Friend Zone was one of my favourite releases last year, and I am delighted to now add The Happy Ever After Playlist to the top of my must-read recommendations for 2020!

  • Another hit from Abby Jimenez!

    I was so excited at the prospect of Abby Jimenez's second book. Her debut, "The Friend Zone" was awesome and I had heard from those that had already read "The Happy Ever After Playlist" that it was equally as wonderful and they couldn't have been more spot on. I can say with 100% confidence that this is my favorite book I've read this year. It's been two years since Sloan Monroe lost her fiance in a tragic accident. In those two years, Sloan has become a shell of herself. She has no motivation, she doesn't want to get out of bed and she's just lost all of her joy. It's a chance meeting with a dog, Tucker, that runs in front of her car that sends her life in a totally different direction and begins to pull her out of the rut she had been in for so long. When Sloan continually tries to get in touch with Tucker's owner with no luck, she finally decides after two weeks that he's staying with her. As fate would have it, it's then that Jason, Tucker's owner finally turns his phone on and receives her messages after being out of cell range in Australia for the entire time she'd been trying to get in touch. The two begin to communicate by text and by phone and the exchanges begin to become flirty. Jason wants a date when he gets back stateside, but Sloan isn't sure she's ready. When they finally do connect when Jason is back in the U.S. is his job as a rising rock star going to torpedo the relationship before it really gets started or will he find a way to have both is career and the woman he's falling so fast for. I just adored everything about this book. The interactions between Sloan and Jason were fantastic. The banter, the easy way they had about them when they were together, the sweet and caring way that Jason was with her, just everything makes me smile thinking about it. I will say I did feel all the emotions throughout this story as well. To me if you can make me cry, you've done a great job. I don't cry all that often when I read books, but this one got me and got me good. Kudos to Abby Jimenez for penning another incredible book! I look forward to what she has to offer us next.

  • Must-read book of 2020!

    The Happy Ever After Playlist is the must-read book of 2020! I've been counting down the days for this release ever since Sloan was introduced to readers in The Friend Zone. Sloan starts off the story with a hilarious meet-cute of her own, only it's with a lost dog who wreaks havoc on her day. The bond she shares with Tucker will pull at your heart strings and draw you in to the story right away. Jason is a man after my own heart. His witty and flirty banter with Sloan will put him at the top of your book boyfriend list. I love that they get to know each other through daily questions and phone calls. Fans of The Friend Zone will love this book, and appreciate that it won't wreck your heart nearly as much as the first book does, lol. With plenty of appearances from our favorite duo, Kristen and Josh, this story was everything I was hoping for and more. A pure delight, especially if you get the audiobook!

  • Fun and delightful

    I love the way Abby Jimenez writes - humour, realistic situations, struggles of ‘real’ life, and with a talent for bringing her characters and scenarios to life. I enjoyed this second book of hers and really hope she keeps writing.

    Thanks for your feedback!
