I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


Jenny Fields is a crusader. The editor of her college newspaper, she never met a cause she couldn’t get behind. So when the administration announces it’s tearing down the historic art building, she’s on the case All she needs to do is get Matthew Townsend, the art department’s boy wonder, on board. They say he his talent is unbounded. It turns out so is his ego.
Matthew Townsend cares about art. And that’s pretty much it. If he has a reputation for being moody and aloof, that suits him just fine. He doesn’t have a family worth speaking of, and as a scholarship student, he can’t afford to goof off like the preppy rich kids at his school. He certainly doesn’t care about the art building. Or about the relentlessly perky Jenny, who looks like she was barfed up by Rainbow Brite. What will it take to the preternaturally cheerful girl with the massive savior complex to leave him alone?

Jenny Fields is looking to save the art building at the college she is attending. She is the editor of the college paper. She gets wind of an artist that might be able to save the building but her only way to him is through art prodigal Matthew Townsend. It’s not an easy feat as Matthew has his sites set on one thing graduating. When Jenny asks for his help he is reluctant. The more he gets to know her the harder it becomes to refuse her and her cause.

In ” an Oyster Shell – This was a cute romance, though not a clean one as I had hoped it would be.

The Pearls – The story was really cute save some explicit sex terms. It was adorable. Outgoing Jenny is trying to persuade loner Matthew to help her. The way the story progresses is endearing. The romance is nice. It’s unexpected.

The romance is nice. It’s unexpected. Which goes along with the story. A lot of things about it are unexpected.

The characters were a treat. I liked how Jenny was vivacious and Matthew was focused and moody. The contrast made for a great story.

The Sand – I was extremely disappointed that the author used explicit sexual terms in places I didn’t feel like was appropriate. It was a cute love story I think the author could have eased up a little. It made it more on the raunchy side which didn’t fit the story.

About Jenny Holiday

Jenny Holiday started writing in fourth grade, when her awesome hippie teacher, between sessions of Pete Seeger singing and anti-nuclear power plant letter writing, gave the kids notebooks and told them to write stories. Most of Jenny’s featured poltergeist, alien invasions, or serial killers who managed to murder everyone except her and her mom. She showed early promise as a romance writer, though, because nearly every story had a happy ending: fictional Jenny woke up to find that the story had been a dream, and that her best friend, father, and sister had not, in fact, been axe-murdered.

From then on, she was always writing, often in her diary, where she liked to decorate her declarations of existential angst with nail polish teardrops. Eventually she channelled her penchant for scribbling into a more useful format. After picking up a PhD in urban geography, she became a professional writer, spending many years promoting research at a major university, which allowed her to become an armchair astronomer/historian/particle physicist, depending on the day. Eventually, she decided to try her hand again at happy endings—minus the bloodbaths
