  1. I got fired from my last job It s true I know you re sitting there thinking Jenn, how could anyone in their right mind fire someone as amazing and awesome as you And i d love to give you a good reason, but the truth is being this awesome is clearly very scary to other less awesome people So I said screw them and started writing my first book And you know what I realized Writing books that mean something to me is a million times better than working for my ass off for someone who doesn t really care about anything other than the bottom line My soul feels satisfied My heart, full.So thank you for reading, loving and recommending the stories I write I appreciate it than you know.

  1. Super sigh of sweet satisfaction Remember this song, by Bryan Adams When you love someone, you ll sacrificeYou ll give everything you got, and you won t think twiceYou ll risk it all, no matter what may comeWhen you love someone.You ll shoot the moon, put out the sunWhen you love someone Those words sound so vanilla, just sitting there on the page, but with the smoky, smouldering intensity of Bryan Adams voice and the moody dreamlike flute and piano accompaniment, they convey a powerful sense of [...]

  2. READ THIS REVIEW The reason for the bold face shouty capitals is because when most readers see a 3 star rating they run screaming for the hills like a half naked big breasted woman in a horror movie Please don t run Have a seat and let me explain What I find most fascinating about Chance Encounters is that it s a new adult book that reads like a YA Raise your hand if you re an adult stuck in young adult book land You like the way they read, but you wish the characters were at least old enough to [...]

  3. What do you do if you love the one your with you adore them and love them with your whole heart but then one day you meet someone who you have an instant and deep connection with What if this person could possibly be your soulmate the person you were meant to spend the rest of your life with Could you just walk away This is the question that is tearing Caroline in two Does she stay with Clay, her boyfriend, who she loves and who she thought was her future, or does she choose Jackson, a man she m [...]

  5. Awww, man This was like a sugar overdose I am currently lying on my couch fighting away happily ever afters and thoughts of true love Most of you know how angsty I am I read dark, murky, slightly sick novels I read to feel and not necessarily to feel happy J Sterling has an eternally optimistic view of love and life Caroline and Jax are clearly meant to be together and this is a novel for those who believe in true loved maybe even those who don t Okay, I have to go exercise myself of this happin [...]

  6. Read of my reviews and ramblings at Ana s Attic Sexy Tales and ToysWhile I normally dislike books where there is dishonesty and cheating, Chance Encounters by J Sterling was different What do you do when, even though you love your boyfriend so much, and he is the perfect mate for you, but you bump into a handsome stranger and have an instant connection like one you ve never had before Can you forget that sizzle and get on with your life Or will you always wonder if perhaps you missed your soulm [...]

  7. I recently read The Perfect Game by J Sterling and I liked it a lot It had some issues with the plot that made me give it only 3 stars, but overall I enjoyed the characters and the writing.Not as much with Chance Encounters I thought the first meeting between Jackson and Caroline was awkward and unrealistic I didn t buy the progression of their relationship at all.It s also difficult to become attached to a character as unlikable as Caroline She is constantly talking to Jackson, mooning over his [...]

  8. I love YA and I love contemporary romance this book is like getting both in one It is written in a YA style but the characters are older than your typical YA book a.k.a This book is right up my alley.Chance Encounters is about love at first site, it s about wondering if you are with the right person, it is about taking chances, and it is about breaking hearts I think my favorite line from the book was Sometimes other hearts have to break in order to keep yours intact I have been in a bit of a bo [...]

  9. I have to first say Congrats to J Sterling I can see where she has grown confidence in her writing and am proud to say that Chance Encounters was a wonderful read Solid 4.5 stars I fell in love with the Characters Jackson especially, I felt the love, the heart break, and most especially the deep connection between all of them I also have to give J big props for not having Caroline physically cheat granted she fell in love with another man while in a relationship BUT she was respectful of that re [...]

  10. Talk about a guilty pleasure book Caroline has the perfect boyfriendere is nothing at all wrong with Clay Matthews J Sterling are you a Packers fan or the way he loves Caroline Even she would tell you that, before she got on a plane that is If I was her real life friend I would be kicking her ass for even thinking about another guy while she had the perfect guy at home Here is where the guilty pleasure kicks in though because the minute Jackson was introducedI was hooked Loved him, loved their c [...]

  14. Holy Tomatoes Zucchini Batman IS is a love story J Sterling very graciously provided me with a copy of her novel to review and I can t thank her enough Once again, J Sterling has floored me with a novel that was so riveting I couldn t put it down Literally, right from the very first pages, I was feeling a connection with the characters and their circumstances The characters have personalities of people you know They are so realistic and likable that you can t help but become vested in their expe [...]

  16. I feel the same way about both of J.Sterling s first two novels the bones themselves are good ones, it s the flesh around them where problems arise Caroline has a perfect boyfriend, but after meeting Jackson on an airplane, she s suddenly conflicted about where she really belongs Here are my issues with this book The initial encounter between Caroline and Jackson was ridiculous I rolled my eyes the entire time, which probably wasn t a great start With all of her books, the female lead didn t see [...]

  17. Despite the relatively lower reviews, I quite enjoyed this book a lot The book is what it claims to be a story about a girl who is in a long term relationship with her boyfriend, Clay, who she previously believed was the one for her They had everything planned out for them and didn t see any foreseeable change to their plans Until Caroline meets Jackson, a boy she can t help but feel an instant attraction to and can t keep herself away from.I don t condone cheating at all, and although Caroline [...]

  18. When reading YA books, I try to keep in mind the intended audience despite my 29 years With Chance Encounters, I didn t have to think about it I appreciate when the action starts right away, when plot tension doesn t come half way through the book, and CE hit the mark in that respect.I fell in love immediately with Jackson Parks, but, like our main character Caroline, I was also in love with her boyfriend Clay The story is real, palpable, and heartbreaking The ping pong game between Caroline s h [...]

  19. 2.5 Stars I am really torn as to how to rate this book 4 stars for the idea, I think this story had a lot of potential I liked the idea of a girl who thinks she has everything she wants until she meets a stranger who she just can t get out of her mind However I really have to say the execution of the story was 2 stars So I will give it 2.5 I am a huge fan of J Sterling s bookThe Perfect Game, I absolutely loved it So I was anxious to read of her works Unfortunately Chance Encounters did not im [...]

  20. I was given the opportunity by the author to read, Chance Encounters by J Sterling After reading the synopsis, I knew I HAD to read it I was hooked from the very start The story takes place in modern day New York and California and leads you on a young woman s journey about following your heart, wherever it might lead you I loved the main character Caroline she is a girl who knows what she wants in life She loves her boyfriend and then she meets Jackson, a gorgeous farm boy from Upstate New York [...]

  21. Together Forever They had always both known it And today was only the beginning What do you do when you are with someone you love, but meet the person you feel like you are truly meant to be with That is the dilemma Caroline has After happily dating Clay for several years, fate brings Jackson into play on a flight from New York to San Francisco From there, Caroline and Jax keep in touch for several months, falling in love and not knowing what to do about it Until Caroline s birthday view spoiler [...]

  22. I just loved this book It was so sweet Caroline has the perfect relationship with Clay Matthews I kept picturing yellow green football jersey with long hair lol Everything is the same they do they same things, he works late and she is home alone all the time, it is very secure When a tragedy brings Caroline to NY the flight there is perfect it is the flight back that is not so idea Caroline is on the plane going back to California when the gorgeous man next to her pretends to be her boyfriend fo [...]

  23. While I had previously never read anything by Ms Sterling I am very glad I picked up this book This book is probably the best book I ve read this month I finished this in just a few hours and found myself staying up a little later just to finish it The book was wonderful I definitely understood exactly where Caroline was coming from despite having never been in her situation It definitely makes her situation all the harder because Clay isn t a jerk Even though this is true about Clay, I still pr [...]

  24. Chance Encounters was a nice book with a decent amount of angst but not too much The only thing I struggled with was that I did not think that the dialogue was believable When I m reading dialogue, I want to be able to hear it People just don t talk like that.I did like the interactions between Jackson and his friends I thought that was good and I was drawn to them I actually preferred reading about them than reading Caroline lamenting with Bailey I did think that Alex might be a little unbeliev [...]

  25. I think the premise of this book happens often in life then people realize, yet I don t think most people have the balls to do what Caroline chose in the end However, considering Jackson s situation that may have been what gave her that extra little nudge Overall, this was a really sweet read I would recommend it for anyone who thinks they are happy in their relationship when really they are just settling I think everyone deserves that knock you off your feet sort of love and maybe this will gi [...]

  26. Jesus I loved the he ll out of this story.You can t help but put yourself in Caroline s shoes Could you walk away from everything and everyone bases on a feeling A pull to another person Although I feel a twinge of guilt for not really having any emotional reaction to Clay s role in this, but hurt doesn t make it right Love makes it right.Jackson was adorable and the first meeting on the flight was so sweet This was a great story of following your heart to find your happy No matter how.

  27. I have to say I loved this book so much and have to thank Elis for bringing this book to my attention Caroline and Jax have a magical meeting They meet on a plane and sparks flew between them instantly The problem Caroline is dating Clay Caroline and Jax s friendship blooms over the next months but even from the beginning it was Their are twists and turns that keep me saying why but the ending was great and I love epilogues they make a book for me.Anyone who reads this needs to pick up the book [...]

  28. A quick and easy readrmally I prefer books written in the first person, but this author does a wonderful job with the third person narrativeng all characters a voice and letting us feel their emotions in an authentic way The attraction and connection between Caroline and Jackson was wonderful I fell in love with them and rooted for them Jackson was so fantastic and Caroline was wonderful, too Highly recommend to my hopeless romantic reader friends like myself Will definitely read from this auth [...]
