5-stars

Broken Sand Dollar was an amazing addition to the Sand Dollar series. The storyline continues to follow Alex as he faces his problems head on. I was surprised and excited for the return of Penny and this novel. Alex was faced with handling all three of the women who played key roles in the development of his character. Not once was I bored with this novel and I found it difficult to put down. Such a wonderful read and I truly loved seeing the change that occurred with each character.

5-stars

Penny For Your Thoughts is a wonderful sweet romance. Main characters Alex and Penny meet after Alex stops to help Penny with her fake flat tire. She really is doing her first news piece focusing on Southern hospitality. The two have a spark and their relationship buds. Alex was a complex character really and there was more going on with him than seen. I loved that he was an Athletic Trainer/Physical Therapist. I haven’t seen that career choice for main characters very often. Penny was very sweet and focused. I strongly disliked her family but could easily see how it influenced and shaped her. The storyline was easy to follow and very addictive. I also like how the author introduces Payton’s character and her mix into this story. Great book!

Broken Sand Dollar by JD Boudreaux is the third book in the Sand Dollar series. I have enjoyed follow Alex on his journey over the years. Of the three books this is my favorite, the changes in Alex are so amazing and he finally finds his happiness.

I saw some of myself in Alex, he was always taking care of everyone else instead of focusing on himself periodically and this is something I have found myself being guilty of. His reason comes from his childhood as does mine but I like his a lot more.

Alex isn’t the only one who has gone through changes. Actually pretty much everyone changes in some way. Some are bigger than others.

This was a great series and I hope to see more this Author in the future.

Four Stars

It took Alex a while to get where he was meant to be but the wait I say was worth it. I love reading books where people find their place. It’s almost as if your not whole until you find that broken piece. I really like Penny and Payton. Both women really cared for Alex and showed a level of understanding that most women can’t even imagine. I really enjoy books by this author. They are both sad and touching. You get to feel so many emotions and experience what the characters do. It reads like your listening to this person face to face. It made it more relatable to me.

Broken Sand Dollar by JD Boudreaux is book three of The Sand Dollar Series. To better understand the events that take place in this book, I highly suggest reading book one and two first.

This series spans over years of Alex’s life. The author effortlessly weaves together present tense with flashbacks of Alex’s past. When you read the first two books you start to get an idea of how you think the third book will go but then it takes you on a completely different journey. Alex’s journey self reflection, coupled with the therapy he does, teaches him a lot about himself.

This book was very well written. I enjoyed seeing the differences in all the characters and how they reacted to different experiences. I was hooked as soon as I started reading this book. It was a great conclusion to the series!

Broken Sand Dollar is the third and final instalment in the Sand Dollar series by JD Boudreaux. These stories are always highly energetic and extremely busy. So much goes on and the author conveys so much and gives away so little, which keeps you riveted to each page. It is almost impossible to put down and easy to lose yourself in.

In this story, the characters from books one and two all come together to give a reader a stunning conclusion to the series.  This book was romantic, emotional and totally captivating. The characters, while different, meshed together well and left wonderful memories of their journey. The tale grabs your attention and holds it captive until the last word.  Never lacking in complexity and depth, it was a great way to pass a lazy weekend. I read in in one sitting because it was that good. Sad to be at the end of the series, but so happy to have got to experience the wonder that is the Sand dollar series. 5 stars.

Broken Sand Dollar (The Sand Dollar Series Book 3) by JD Boudreaux is the final book in The Sand Dollar Series. It is a wonderful conclusion to the story of Alex and his life. It is a must that these books be read in order each book follow on and come together nicely. It is a journey of fate, faith and being and finally finding yourself. The first two books were enjoyable but JD did well in this book to tie everything up nicely but it also felt like the story had matured much like the characters. It is an emotional read but it also brings much happiness. I loved the stupid phrases the main characters sprouted at each other that had me laughing out loud.

Alex has always been a giver a fixer but not so much for himself. The women in his life leaving him in one way or another. After his last turn at love goes wrong, he packs up and returns to the one place that he feels at home, and what he finds when he finally stops is the one thing he never thought he would have. But he also learns how far back everything in his life has lead to where he is now.

A great way to finish up the series.

I was first introduced to J.D Boudreaux’s writing when I stumbled across the beautiful cover art of Wish I Had a Nickel. At the time I had read that novel I had somehow missed it was the second in a series. While some aspects left me curious what I was missing, I was really captivated by J.D Boudreaux’s storytelling and loved the story regardless. That being said, since this is a series meant be read in order I highly recommend starting at the beginning for the full picture.
I felt that Broken Sand Dollar was a fantastic ending to a unique storyline. I tend to feel that so many romances are typical and predictable, J.D Boudreaux crafted a series with heart warming characters, great twists, and raw emotion that felt new and refreshing to me. This is definitely an author I will keep a lookout for.

This book is an amazing addition to the sand dollar series. Do yourself a huge favor and read the first two books. You will get a lot of those books that will build into the anticipation for this book. Alex was a very beloved character of mine and I was so hopeful for his story to continue. You become invested in the lives of these characters and are genuinely concerned for their health and well-being. Having said that, Alex is a man who is fixing himself. His past relationships have not gone well. He feels that he needs to save everyone and as you can imagine that is emotionally and physically draining. After all of the mishaps with his relationships, he moves back to the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. The place he calls home.
The dialogue in this story is witty and sharp. The characters are on point and the back and forth is both hilarious and quick witted. This book is such an emotional roller coaster that you are left breathless yet excited to see what is next. You will not guess the ending to this book and if you did, then you cheated. I loved every inch of this book. Highly recommended for all readers of genres as this is not the typical romance novel.

Another wonderful read in this series! I loved the two books that came before this one so I was really looking forward to reading this one and I was not disappointed. It was everything that I have come to expect from this author – beautifully written, great characters, lovely plot and full of emotion! I loved how she tied up everything from the previous two books together with this one – I always thought I knew Alex and what his story would be like so I LOVED that I was wrong! The author definitely threw in some unpredictable curveballs which made the story even more exciting to read! I am really sad that the story of these wonderful characters has ended but I know for sure whatever J D Boudreaux writes next it will be equally as wonderful and I will be eagerly awaiting more from her in the future!
Broken Sand Dollar was a fantastic 5 star read that I highly recommend – I also recommend that the series in read in order.
