Did you fall in love with The English Brothers? Were you hot for the Winslows?

Katy Regnery's Blueberry Lane series continues with The Rousseau siblings!

Jacqueline “Jax” Rousseau is vivacious, rich, smart and beautiful…but that doesn’t mean she’s lucky in love: she’s dated doctors, lawyers, actors and politicians who’ve all managed to end up disappointing her. In fact, she’s on a self-imposed hiatus from love when she has an unpleasant run-in with her neighbor’s gorgeous new landscaper, Gardener Thibodeaux. Jax is not accustomed to gruff, ill-mannered men that can’t be charmed, but something about Gard intrigues her, and if she can find her way through the armor that surrounds his heart, she also might find a love that won’t let her down.

My Review

Jonquils for Jax is another 5 star romance from Katy Regnery!

This is the 26th book I’ve reviewed from author Katy Regnery and she continues to amaze me with her heartwarming stories and characters I grow to love. Jacqueline “Jax” Rousseau is smart, beautiful and rich. From the outside it appears Jax has a perfect life. But in reality she’s struggling to decide her future. Returning home for her brother’s wedding is the perfect excuse to leave her problems behind. And meeting the sexy Gardener Thibodeaux is a welcome distraction. Gardener is hiding a painful past and tries to keep his distance from Jax. But their attraction and chemistry is too strong for both of them to ignore. I am not going to spoil their story but you have to read this to experience their magical and steamy love story.

As in all of Katy Regnery’s books I love how the characters are soulmates. Jax and Gardener not only have a physical attraction but they have an emotional connection. Both of them are hiding from the world but together they face their fears and doubts. I loved that there were sexy romantic scenes but also honest communication between them. I wished their story was longer but I know they will make an appearance in the next books. Jax loves her brothers and sister so there is no way we won’t hear from her again.

Jonquils for Jax can be read as a standalone but characters from the previous books make an appearance. It is easy to follow but I think once you read this book you’ll want to start with the first book, Breaking Up with Barrett. You will fall in love with the families of Blueberry Lane.

About Katy Regnery

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

      I agree about the emotional connection. Some romances have too many sex scenes and it makes me wonder if those couples would really last since they don’t actually talk to each other lol. Thanks Katherine for stopping by!!
