Let me share with you some of the Wonderful reviews we have gotten.

The first review for the anthology came from Dirty Girl Review:  http://dirtygirlreviews.blogspot.com/2008/11/one-touch-onr-glance.html

This anthology really touched my heart, which is why I am giving it a four star rating. It was an above average read, focusing on the emotion and romance not the physical side of love. So it was very satisfying to read.. Not only do I recommend you buy this for yourself, but also for your loved ones. It’s a romance book that won’t make you blush when you hand it to your mother-in-law. The book is sure to leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside after you are through reading.

4 Stars

The second review came from Cocktail Review:  http://cocktailreviews.wordpress.com/2008/11/24/one-touch-one-glance-freyas-bower/

This is what they said about my story: 

Forever Guy by Jambrea Jo Jones

Sheriff Samantha Reynolds has a lot on her plate and mind, ensuring that the town of Port is free from crime. So, after being covered in mud after being knocked down by a pig (LOL), she is shocked to find that her brother’s best friend, Jack, has arrived back in town. She’s had a crush on him for years. Has she got a chance with him now he’s back, or will she have to forever hold her feelings inside?

An enjoyable tale in many respects, especially the pig image.

The whole anthology received:One of the highest honors. 

The Whole Bottle of Champagne—These books far surpass 5 flutes of champagne. This is for exceptional works only. (From their site)

 

And the last review we received came from Dark Diva Reviews:  http://darkdivareviews.webs.com/romance.htm

(Scroll down, it is the second one)

 

This is what was said about my story:Title: Forever Guy
Author:
Jambrea Jo Jones
Summary:
Sam has always known what she wants, and that’s Jack. All she has to do, now he’s back in town, is convince him.

My review: Another gem. This story has all the elements I love. This story has it all, real characters, real relationships, and true love. What’s not to like? The author paints a vivid picture of small town life and community, and doesn’t sugar-coat the realities of coming home from war, knowing how impossible it is pick up where you left off. Starting fresh just might lead to forever, though. 

Here is what she said about the whole anthology:This book is full of great stories. I flew through it, laughed, teared up a few times, and generally, had a great time delving into each world, meeting each new couple, and sharing their journeys. There are so many wonderful stories; I had to give them each a little bit individual attention. This is a terrific compilation of sweet, honest romance like I haven’t encountered in a long time.

My recommendation: Curl up with this one, folks. There’s something for every romance lover, and you’ll not be disappointed.

 Rated 5 Delightful Divas by Jaime!

So we’ve received some great reviews and I’m very proud to be a part of this wonderful anthology.  The thing that makes me the happiest is I get to share this anthology with a great friend, wonderful author and amazing critique partner Kensana Darnell.  She is one of my partners in crime! 

I don’t only share this day with my fellow anthology authors, but also with the hubby.  He received his first contract as well and…guess what….His book comes out today too!  lol  His buy link:
