THE RUNAROUND: A Single Dad Romantic Comedy (CAROLINA CONNECTIONS BOOK 6) By SYLVIE STEWART – Review by Shani Kenny

The Runaround (Carolina Connections #6)The Runaround by Sylvie Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jax is a guy who is in it for a good time when it comes to relationships, or in his case, hookups. He works hard and plays just as hard. He’s been hurt enough in life that the best policy is to keep up his walls, no matter what. He loves his work and has been a successful business owner for many years. He enjoys a good roll in the grass, whether it’s a quickie or sculpting! Things are great for him, but then he finds out he has a teenage daughter and everything is a game-changer. Looking for a way to connect with her on some level, he reaches out to Ari, whom he’s been hot for, for some time. He needs her to step in and help, but he doesn’t know what he’s asking for.

Ari is a woman who gets through life by being unabashedly herself. It’s easy to put up similar walls and keeping someone hanging that’s only temporary, so they can’t get settled into her life and screw up the relationships she has with those close to her. Who needs to be in love when you have music, good friends, and a good time? She isn’t afraid to let herself be free and enjoy who she is. Music is a big part of who she is and Jax knows it. She agrees to help him out, but she doesn’t know what she’s getting into either.

Together their love story goes through ups and downs, witty banter, frustrations, attitude problems, desire, laughter, and of course anger are all part of the journey. I loved that with this story there was focus on a single parent and what it takes to uproot your life, change it up and accept changes. I felt for all three of them as they navigated their roles in each other’s lives. Through it all it was incredible to see how hard they fought for each other, they didn’t just roll away and give up. It’s a beautifully written story that holds your attention for a long time!

What a perfect title for this book LOL I don’t know if Ive ever wanted to slap 2 people more than the two in this book. They made me laugh, they absolutely ticked me off, and I fell in love with both of them. This author never disappoints, I know as soon as I pick up one of her books that I need to be ready because you never know what will happen next, or what will make you crack up next.

This was an awesome story made even better with the friends and families, it’s been a long time since I read book 5 and I was a bit fuzzy on some of the characters but a lot of it came back and what didn’t, didn’t matter it was still simply amazing!

You can read this as a stand alone with no problem, but trust me when I say the books that come before it are worth every second of your time.

OMG some of the conversations in this book, and the pet names for lack of a better word literally had me dying..

I can not wait for more from all of these characters and after reading this I want to go back now and read the others all over again!

Loved it!!

Yes, yes, yes!! I won’t lie I live for Sylvie Stewart’s spicy romantic comedies, especially her Carolina Connections series. The RUNAROUND is the sixth book in this series and believe it or not, they just keep getting better and better. I believe that with these you could read them out of order or one, but being so good why not dive in from the beginning and follow some wonderful new friends as they navigate this messy thing called life.

In THE RUNAROUND we have the story of Ari and Jax, both strong and witty characters, and the adventure that is their lives to devour. I loved how this book took what is sometimes a typical romance trope and beefed it up so to speak. This made things so much more believable and realistic, almost feeling as if I was reading a real life story and right there with the characters. I won’t give much more details than what is already given to us in the blurb because I can’t bear to spoil this book for you, but I can promise you won’t be disappointed that you read it! I can’t wait to see what we will get next from the ever so talented Sylvie Stewart!

The Runaround: A Single Dad Romantic Comedy by Sylvie Stewart is the sixth book in the Carolina Connections series. This is a fun, romantic series and this installment did not let me down. The series can be read as a standalone, but I think better enjoyed as a series. This time around the story focuses on Jax, a single dad to a teenage daughter and Ari, a seductive songstress. I always enjoy the dialogue in this series and this one is great also. I also enjoy the lightheartedness of the series. This is always a little get away to read a Sylvie Stewart book.

The Runaround: A Single Dad Romantic Comedy (Carolina Connections Book 6) by Sylvie Stewart. From page one I knew I was going to love this book. Jax and Ari are characters I won’t be forgetting any time soon, I was drawn into their story immediately. Each one has life throwing them for a curve but they handle it as well as they can. I definitely had times where I was laughing out loud and times when I was a bit more emotional with their story. It’s a well written story, paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. If you’re looking for a great story with characters you can connect with I highly recommend this story. Five stars all the way.

This author has done it again! She has the sassy, snarky, fun loving characters down to a T. This is one of my favorite series. I love these characters. I thought I had this book figured out but then a 14 yo dropped in and woosh….everything changed. Great Story!

There is an array of funny fast talking scenes. My favorite is the fortune telling texts between Ari and Jax. I also have many passages highlighted. Words of wisdom and other amazing thoughts by the characters.

I loved seeing all the characters from this series. They still make me laugh with their antics. It’s always a good time reading one of these.

The Runaraound by Sylvie Stewart is the 6th book in the Carolina Connections series. I am new to this author and I am IN LOVE! I love her style of writing. She has a way of making the characters really come to life with their emotions and quick wittiness. I was hooked on this story from the moment I started this book until the very last page. Ariana was an amazing character all together and I loved her throughout the whole book. She is very strong and quite humorous. I felt the strong connection between her and Jax. I felt his frustration with his newly discovered teenager. I feel as if this book couldn’t have been any better… it was written perfectly. I will be honest and say that I have not read the other books in this series. However after reading this one, I’ll be going back and giving them each the love and attention that they deserve.

The Runaround: A Single Dad Romantic Comedy by Sylvie Stewart is the sixth book in the Carolina Connections series. This book can be read as a stand-alone.
Whenever I pick up a book by this author I know I am going to enjoy it. This book however blew my expectations out of the water. I loved Ari and Jax. The connection between them was fantastic. I laughed along with them, a found myself getting choked up a time or two. They really made me feel like I was on their journey with them.
I loved the story as well: it felt different to most other single dad stories I have read recently. It was entertaining and well written. This book ticked all the boxes for me and I will definitely be going back to read the rest in the series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Runaround: A Single Dad Romantic Comedy (Carolina Connections Book 6) by Sylvie Stewart is a sweet romance story. Where the man has so many flaws but they make him that much more lovable. I was in fits of laughter as I read this but there were just as many heart felt moments. It is a well written and fun story that makes for a great read. Sylvie’s stories always make me smile so it’s a no brainer when her books come along. I loved the banter between the characters and the flirtation were so entertaining. Strong and independent with lots of sass and his flirting charm will get under your skin.

Want a nice easy read? Then this is the one.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book from page one. You always know within the first 2 chapters in your going to love or hate the book. I should’ve known before I started reading that I was going to love it. Sylvie Stewart has had me hooked from the first book I’ve read of hers. I can add this to my list of faves by her.

Jax finds out he has a daughter but she isn’t a young little girl. She’s a teenager! How do you expect a teenage girl to react finding out she has a dad whom she has never met before. Jax keeps trying but, Lola wants nothing to do with him.

Jax reaches out to Ari who he knows thru mutual friends. Ari has an awesome voice and becomes Lola’s voice teacher. Jax knows getting Ari involved could be risky because there is a lot of sexual tension between them. Ari worked on creating a website for Jax last year and it was a miracle he got thru it without throwing her down.

Ari and Jax try to be friends but they both imagine more happening between them. What will happen when they slip up and give into temptation? Will it be a one time thing like Jax is used to or will he not be able to get enough. How will Lola react? Will Lola ever see Jax as her dad or will she always have the teenage attitude? I felt bad for Jax throughout the book because he tried hard to get to know Lola but she blamed him for not being around even though he had no idea about her until that phone call from her mom.

I look forward to more books by this author. I love her work. You don’t want to skip by this great read. Grab your copy today.
