Out of the Box Collection is a three book boxed set which contains the complete Out of the Box series for you to enjoy. It is an emotional rollercoaster ride from beginning through to the end. You will have your heartstrings pulled and plucked, tossed from one emotion into another- but the story and characters will pull you back for more.
Definitely worth the read.
The collection contains:
Out of the Box Awakening (Book #1)
Out of the Box Awakening is the first book in the Out of the Box Series by Jennifer Theriot. It is an emotionally charged women’s literature/contemporary romance with an older, more seasoned main characters. It isn’t what you would normally expect from a romance, as Ms. Theriot takes us one a deeper, more realistic and emotional journey. This is a second chance romance, with new beginnings, finding oneself/self-discovery, learning and growing, and much more.
We meet Olivia Petersen who has her ‘perfect’ world turned upside down by her husband’s betrayal, leaving her out of her depth, confused, and away from her comfort zone.
Ash Harper is Liv’s husbands’ former army buddy, who has experienced much pain himself. He has baggage and secrets- but they share a connection that neither can deny.
Fate throws they together, and there will be choices to be made… so will they find comfort and happiness in each other? Is he her Mr. Right- Or just Mr Right Now?
You really should read the story/series and discover all the emotional details for yourself!
An enjoyable story, even though it was a little cheesy and predictable in place, the emotional content helped to balance the story.
Out of the Box Regifted (Book #2)
Out of the Box Regifted is the second book in the Out of the Box Series by Jennifer Theriot. This story starts off where the first book left off, so I really recommend reading Book #1 before starting this one, as there is important character details and storyline contained in that book which will give you a greater appreciation of what’s happened/happening her, and knowing all those details will enhance your reading experience of this book.
I really appreciated getting some more insight into the characters, secondary characters included. The story also was less predictable than the first book, which I also liked. We follow along as Ash and Olivia’s story unfolds, getting a front row seat to all the developments, as well as the obstacles they encounter along the way- which will test them, while also adding drama and angst to the story.
Another emotional addition to the series and has me highly anticipating how their story will play out! Bring on Book #3!
Out of the Box Everlasting (Book #3)
Out of the Box Everlasting is the third and final book in the Out of the Box series by Jennifer Theriot. It packs quite a punch, and not just emotionally. It is quite intense, suspenseful, dramatic, and nerve-wracking… and is my favourite of the three books.
It was a little bittersweet to read as I wanted to know how everything would play out, so I was completely invested in what I was reading, but also a little sad that the series was coming to an end.
There was so much character development and growth throughout the series, especially for Olivia- who grew the most. There was heartache, emotion, romance, love, mystery, suspense, tragedy, secrets, twists, unexpected developments, and much to overcome for the characters on their journey towards happiness. Ms. Theriot certainly put them through their paces, that’s for sure.
Again, this story picks up where the previous book left off. So, having said that, I really recommend reading all the books, in sequence, so you have all the details that you need to full appreciate this book, and the series as a whole.
As expected, Ms. Theriot didn’t disappoint, as this is both clever, and a fitting conclusion to the series!
If you love to read realistic and relatable stories, with plenty of drama and emotion, and interesting and likeable characters- then this is definitely the book for you. Three books in one- you can’t get better than that. #Winning!!!
Thank you, Ms. Theriot!
