10 Days was a really funny read – I enjoyed it a lot. One of the things I really liked about the story was the setting – I don’t think I’ve read a story that involved camping – it was really refreshing to read. All the characters were great to read about – I guess some parts were a little predictable but I don’t think that made me like the story any less. I loved the connection between Alex, Luke and Penny.
Overall 10 Days was a really great read and one that I would highly recommend. I am looking forward to reading more from this author again in the future.

This is a charming friends to lovers story. I found the book to be quite entertaining. The romance between Alex and Penny was believable with just the right amounts of attraction and nervousness. The comedy relief was enjoyable. Alex is a true city boy who’s never been in the woods. Being an author, he needs to do research for his next book. Luke and Penny decide to drag him camping in the wilderness for ten days. What ensues is quite hilarious. Aside from Alex and Penny falling in love, Luke had to come to terms with his feelings about the situation; seeing as he is best friends with both of them.

The book is informative pertaining to surviving in the wild. I appreciated that because I learned a lot. It is also written from Alex’s perspective which I enjoyed. It is not often that you will find a romance novel written from the male’s viewpoint. It showed how insecure men feel as well. I found it quite refreshing. This is a really good book that I think you will enjoy.

10 Days by KJ Holliday was a great romantic read. I dug right in and immediately wanted more of Alex and Penny. Alex’s sarcasm and sense of humor reminded me of close friends and I felt at home inside his head. I enjoyed the flow and pacing of the story. I loved that there was steam, always makes for a good read.

This is a refreshing read. It is set from the perspective of the lead male which is a nice change for a story about romance. The setting of a camping expedition is also something different. The characters are well written with the lead character being  very witty and funny.

Alex Jones is an author. When he needs inspiration for his new book his friends Luke and Penny offer to help him out.
They take him on a camping expedition to show how what it’s like to get back to nature.

However Alex is a city boy. Being in the middle of nowhere, pitching tents and building fires is not his idea of fun. The only thing making it bearable is Penny.

As the 10 days progress Alex’s feelings for Penny grows but not knowing how she feels should he take the risk or keep his feelings to himself. Also how will Luke react when his feelings are shown.

This book had me laughing from the very beginning and even though there were some serious moment thrown in, they did not detract from the humor throughout the book.

Alex is a male version me in so many ways.  Lives for coffee and food and is highly allergic to the great outdoors.   But unlike me he starts to like his fact finding adventures with Luke and Penny while in nature.

Penny is so much more than she first appeared to be,  and I liked that vulnerability being shown and noticed by Alex.

I really enjoyed this book and will be keeping my eye out for others by this author.

This book was much more than I expected it to be.
There was some pretty funny parts dealing with a city boy and how things are out in the wild and his overall take on it was pretty accurate from what this country girl would imagine.
There was a great flow to the way this book was read, drama and conflict were few and far between for the most part, but boy when it was there it was THERE!
I will definitely be looking for more titles by KJ Holiday!

When Alex is suffering from a serious case of writer’s block (and the deadline for his next book is looming), his best friend Luke takes him up to the mountains to help Alex find that spark. Luke’s other best friend, and friend of Alex by association, Penny joins them on the trip.
While opening Alex’s eyes to what it takes to survive in nature, Alex’s eyes are also opened about his feelings for Penny. While there is a “bro-code” between Alex and Luke, Alex finds it harder and harder to keep his thoughts from straying to Penny. When they realize they have a mutual attraction, they decide to act on it. Should they be honest with Luke at tell him what’s going on?
When they are forced to end their trip early and come home, doubts start to creep into Alex’s mind about whether or not this thing with Penny can survive back in the city. This causes him and Lucas to argue…and Alex to doubt if he is worthy.
I found myself drawn to Alex’s character because I can see myself in him (minus the childhood and background issues). However, I believe Penny is good for him and forces him, gently, out of his comfort zone to see the person he could be. I enjoyed the story and, like most readers, want to know what happens next. Overall, a good story.

10 Days by KJ Holliday is a rom com holiday story. This fun read is about a camping trip set to free thoughts of a writer who has writer’s block and thus the fun, adventure and shenanigans begin. This city boy meets country girl story was told from Alex’s POV and I found his sarcastic inner voice funny even when I had to do a couple of double takes. The story felt like it was written for a younger audience as well. The premise is good but I found it to be missing something to take it to the next level. It’s refreshing to see a story that is not about the norm.

This fast-paced breezy romance story is about a novelist, Alex Jones, who was facing a writer’s block which was proving a hindrance to his next novel. Two of his childhood friends, Luke and Penny convince him to take a camping trip to clear up his mind and have a new perspective. Alex Jones is not very fond of countryside and camping, which is completely out of his comfort zone. However, he decides to go along with his friends. In the matter of 10 days, he ends up falling in love with Penny, which was never a part of the plan. This makes the situation even more hilarious with Alex’s sarcastic inner voice nudging him frequently. His feelings towards Penny and his awkwardness on how Luke would react if he knows the reality forms a very interesting plot. Set in the cradle of nature amidst the country side wilderness, it is a breezy love story. You will enjoy reading it.
