    Where do I even start? This book is everythingOkay so I've been waiting since March to have this book in my hands and I finally received it last night Now considering how much I had to wait being in the same room with it and not reading it was impossible So of course I read it in a day Let me tell you the wait was so worth it It kept me grinning from ear to ear all the wayThis is my second book by Julie and it just deepened my love for her writing This is the first firefighter novel I have read and boy am I addicted now This book succeeded in making forget about the world and reeling me in as if I was part of the story I could only be so lucky I mean c'mon FirefightersIt's impossible not to relate to the main character Lizzy as Ryan likes to call her Women that see themselves as 'not good enough' and book nerds alike will agree with me Who doesn't love a book where the characters love to read as much as the reader? Especially when there are book clubs in the euation I'm inSo in comes Ryan My life He has a heart of gold worthy of the swooniest swoon and a body worthy of being in covers all around the world Every woman needs a man like him in their lives I can't even begin to tell you how much he made me tear up with his beautiful words and they weren't even directed at me Thanks a lot Julie Now all I can think about is the fact that I don't have a Ryan in my life I will keep waiting for him though mark my words Lizzy's relationship with Ryan is the one I will compare every relationship I come across from now on Real and fictional all of them I absolutely love these two together The pace their relationship takes is perfectI've never been in SO MUCH NEED to get my hands on the second book to a series before I called that epilogue but even then it didn't take away from the experience of officially reading it It was a bombshell but SO SATISFYINGLY UNSATISFYING I need And goddamn I'd be lying if I said I didn't fangirl hard in my room I'm definitely going to stalk Julie's every move now AH JULIE I hope it comes out soon because I'm going insane I don't even know what day I'm on any

    Slick‘s review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews45 STARSReview copy provided for an honest reviewReviewers note Author Julie Prestsater asked me to read the first two chapters of this book way back when she was first developing this series I fell in love with the characters immediately but my one uestion to her was if the heroine was going to cheat on her husband which she assured me was not going to happen That was a very long time ago and I’ve thought about these characters a lot since then so I was really happy to get an ARC for review so I could finally find out what happened nextIt is really hard being in a marriage that doesn’t work; this I know for a fact so yes Tell Me You Love Me kind of hit home with me While this is the first book in a new series and we meet a lot of characters I wasn’t overwhelmed in fact I was completely intrigued by this zany and interesting group of friends and the firefighters they befriend that work at the station in their neighborhood I loved that the women were part of a book club that met in a spot so they could watch the firefighters do their PT and that the guys became unofficial members of their club The easy camaraderie between them all the teasing and the general affection was easy to see right away and I immediately felt like part of this group I have no doubt the firefighters of Valley Creek Drive will be heating up book clubs around the world and producing some smokin’ hot book boyfriend fantasies as this series plays outLizzy is one of those heroines most women can associate with; fighting her weight and trying not to let her husband’s hurtful words affect her and fighting a losing battle on both fronts When she meets the new firefighter of the group Ryan Lizzy feels things she knows she shouldn’t and notices that he doesn’t look at her with revulsion There is no doubt that Lizzie’s self esteem has taken a hit and she’s not in a good place mentally or physically and she harbors a lot of anger towards her husband so I had to wonder at why she hadn’t made a move to leave; she wasn’t without skills and I came to the realization that she felt trapped and she just needed something or someone to set her free and feeling better about herself was the first stepIt is so easy to love a hero like Ryan; one that appreciates everything about a woman not just her dress size I love that he admired things about Lizzie from the start like how she looked natural didn’t wear a ton of make up let her hair down and ran her mouth giving as good as she got He enjoyed her wit and sense of humor as much as he lusted after her luscious curves Most of all I loved that he didn’t let anyone talk bad about her or her weight including her ass of a husband the one he didn’t know she hadI really enjoyed watching the easy friendship these two fell into and the fact that the want was there on both sides from the beginning Both Ryan and Lizzy made mistakes that cost them time they could have been together yet it was time they both needed to understand the feelings they had for one another and the way their former relationships impacted their future This book spans over a year and while this couple does finally act on their attraction it is a slow build up and I for one loved that it simmered slowly until the heat engulfed them and then it raged out of control Pretty damn satisfyingAs with any book from this author the secondary characters played a huge role in moving the story forward and by offering support help and some sage advice when needed From Lizzy’s friends and book club members to the other firefighters and to Ryan’s mom and sister they added so much fun and color to an already spectacular storyOne thing I have always appreciated about this author is her ability to write what I like to call “real” dialog; dialog most of us use and hear when we are with our friends and family In Tell Me You Love Me Ms Prestsater has done that again as well as given her readers exactly what they expect from her; a sweet sassy and sexy as hell romance and the start of what promises to be another fantastic seriesPS—Readers take note this author through her characters gives you a list of books she obviously has loved reading which is another reason to love her because she promotes other author’s work within her own

    Review Originally Posted at Book FreakPURCHASE IT ►►► Rating 45 StarsWe get to meet set of friends whom you will adore Not to mention a whole lot of book recommendation from these girls some of the books I have already read and these girls do have tasteThe first book is all about Liz and RyanLizzy is an amazing girl with a great wit She had some weight problems and it is putting some weight on her marriage Anyone can see Jace is a total a who doesn’t deserve this wonderful woman I wanted her to leave him to leave his house and to finally see herself the way I see her Abuse comes in different forms and hers the emotional one is just a little heartbreaking It was breaking her spirit and her esteem She deserves to be love fullyGood thing she has her friends Molly Rachel Rose whom she meets for the book club meeting and to ogle sexy firemen who come along their way It was usually the highlight of her week and of my read Who doesn’t want a glimpse of these gorgeous and hot fire fighters?What she didn’t expect was to meet the newbie Ryan and the sparks that ignite between them No this is book doesn’t have a ‘cheating’ involve in it I swear Or I wouldn’t have loved it There was some flirty banter every now and then she might have forgotten to tell him about her civil status – but there was no incidence that she had crossed that line Her husband might have treated her like trash but it didn’t occur to her to cheat on himI wonder when she would finally see herself – on how great and wonderful she is rather than believe in her husband’s words When would she finally break it off with him and be with Ryan? It took some time and some heartbreaking moments before she had finally woke up – but at the expense of her heartWould she be able to make it up to Ryan after all of this is finished?It’s a fun easy on the heart and short read I fully enjoyed this book because of the great hilarious and real characters You can easily identify yourself with one of the characters and tell yourself – that’s definitely me Julie made her characters with flaws imperfect and just the usual baggage any one of us can relate too No unnecessary drama which I am so thankful forTell Me You Love Me tells its readers that no matter what you have to love yourself and be with the person who loves your imperfectionsI can't wait for Molly's story the epilogue had me excited yay•Complimentary Copy was given in exchange for an honest review•More of my reviews at

    PLEASE TELL ME THIS SERIES CONTINUES SOON I am in love with this book Ryan is my new book boyfriend and WOW I can’t say enough good things about him He can save me any day of the week Liz is married to a jerk named Jace It takes a lot for me to truly hate a person and I HATE him Yes I know he isn’t a real person but if he was he would be hated Liz is a bit overweight according to her husband and he makes sure that his disgust well known Like I said JERKRyan has just come back to his hometown and is working at the local firehouse He and the guys are out on a PT run when they come across Liz and her friends having a “book club” meeting He is instantly attracted to her and her luscious curvesI wish I could live in this town The Hill of Death becomes Lizzy and Ryan’s spot; they become fast friends and they have a chemistry that can’t be hidden It becomes almost unbearable to see them grow their friendship and not act on their feelings I wanted to shout at them to just say something to each otherOh and the epilogue I did not see that coming at all I can only hope to get book 2 in my hands ASAP Devlynn 5 starsAll Liz ever wanted was to be loved Adopted as an infant she’s felt unwanted since her father passed away In seeking solace Liz met and married Jace but through his cruel comments and actions Liz is wondering if any of her memories of her once happy marriage are even real Liz and her “Fired Up Book Club” schedule their bi weekly outdoor meetings around the fire department’s physical training schedule The women have been meeting for over a year and have established a fun relationship with several of the firemen Enter Ryan—the newbie in the fire department Ryan and Liz become fast friends but what happens when Ryan learns Liz is married to asshole Jace?I loved this book from page one and couldn’t put it down once I started I really identified with Liz What woman hasn’t struggled with her weight? I know I have but I’m fortunate enough to be loved by a man who could care less how big or small I am—he loves me for me Ryan is that type of man too—Liz immediately recognizes that and openly flirts with him Add in the crazy personalities of the rest of the women in the book club and the firemen and you have one heck of a great book about self acceptance forgiveness unconditional love and kick ass friendshipBe sure to read through the epilogue—you’re in for a big surprise setting up for book two in the series Missy 5 stars

    I had read basically ALL good things about this one so I was a little disappointed when I only found it okay It's not a bad book but it failed to really capture my interestI completely get that abusive relationships take all forms eg not always physical and that every person will have a different reaction So I feel a bit hesitant to say that Liz didn't feel like a woman who was stuck in her marriage and scared to get out She felt like someone who knew she was being treated like crap by Jace who felt like she didn't deserve Jace's vitriol and yet she stayed with him anyway I would have liked examination of why she stayed because there are definitely valid reasons why she might have and there are so many mindsets where I could understand why she would but in this particular book I didn't buy itSo it's clear from the beginning that Lizzy and Ryan are totally into one another and they spend a ton of time together Ryan is falling in love and Lizzy just doesn't bother telling him she's married She justifies it by keeping things platonic I put platonic in uotations because you can cheat emotionally just as much as you can physically I mean I wouldn't blame Lizzy for straying from Jace because the guy's a total asshat but let's call a spade a spade And this is a small thing but after all of their time together I'm supposed to believe that Lizzy has to ask someone for Ryan's phone number? It's a small detail but it stuck out in an odd wayAnyway the relationship between Liz and Ryan with how Liz withholds the truth and Ryan runs away felt very juvenile I liked the two of them together but I would have liked it even under different circumstances

    I don't like the new trend of authors making the heroine 'into books' or the hero having a huge library at his house that just bugs me I think it's stupid and overused This story is NOT like that Lizzy works at a library she goes to book club she fantasizes over book boyfriends she's one of usI really enjoyed the dynamic of her group of friends and their interactions with the hot firemen Yes I repeat HOT FIREMENThis book is sweet and easygoing yet hits its objective spot on Love yourself and if others don't love you for who you are and how you look then they aren't worth your timeRyan is a sweetheart He was raised right and this book will have you swooning for himSuper cute funny uick and sweet read

    I loved this book It's a uick fun read with some angsty parts I only wished Lizzy would have stuck it to her husband some Can't wait for the rest of the series two years to wait is too long

    DNF at 25%I understand that her husband is mean and not nice to her but unfortunately she’s still married So flirting and going out for coffee with this other guy she’s drooling over doesn’t sit right with me Maybe she decides to leave her husband eventually in the book but I just don’t like the possibility of the angst

    Love itThis book reminds me so much of real life that I enjoyed it tremendously It gave me the sense of good things can happen after all Everything is possible and this can become a reality Phenomenal
