Out of the Box Collection was a wonderful set of stories by an author whose books I absolutely love reading! Every single book had me hooked from the beginning and I fell in love with all of the characters. The way in which the author wrote about these characters made me truly feel that I was a part of their story, feeling all the emotions that they did. The realistic feel that they had been given again helped me become fully invested in what was happening in their lives. I thought that this series was particularly well written and probably my favourite stories by this author so far. They are the kind of the stories that after you have finished reading them they make you think about what you have read, for me this shows that the author has really allowed me to connect with the characters. The storyline was captivating, I found myself turning the ages quicker and quicker just so I could find out what was going to happen next and I loved that being a box set I was able to go straight from book to book without having to wait!
Overall a truly fantastic series, one that I thoroughly enjoyed! I cannot recommend it enough and I am definitely looking forward to reading more from this author again in the future!

Out Of The Box Collection (A Second Chance Romance Series, The Complete 3 Book Collection) by Jennifer Theriot

5-stars

Out Of The Box Collection features three novels by Jennifer Theriot hat cannot be read as standalone books. I love having them grouped together since each one picks up where the other ended. The collection features the novels Awakening, Regifted, and Everlasting. The novels follow Ash Harper and Olivia Peterson. Awakening introduces these two amazing characters as Olivia comes to terms with her husband leaving her. The second book, Regifted, continues to follow these two as they live and figure life as a newly engaged couple while Olivia also embraces a new version of herself. Book three, Everlasting, continues to follow the engaged couple as tragedy strikes. Their love is challenged in this third novel more than any.

I loved the character development in all of these books. Ash and Olivia’s families become blended and I love how accepting everyone was of each other. There were many times I was literally laughing out loud and other times when I would tear up for one of the characters. The storyline was easy to follow in these books and it was edited well. The settings were descriptive and easy to visualize. I appreciated the focus on love and family. This emotionally investing collection is definitely worth 5 stars and I highly recommend it.

Holy moly, what a collection! I was so invested in this series. The writing style took a couple chapters to get into the groove for me, as they were in my opinion, talking in a way that wasn’t used in normal conversations. It didn’t take away from the story it just took a bit to get used to.
I really loved these characters and i was just along for the ride to see what happened next. The main characters were great but I wish we could be in Tommy and Todd’s heads too. Or even just Ash!
This is mainly about an older couple with grown children, but we do see new relationships blossom along the way.
This had ups and downs and man were the downs really down. But it made the story what it was.
Highly highly recommend.

This boxed set features the complete OUT OF THE BOX trilogy.

This series is almost too realistic at times. It causes all the feelings to show themselves. At times it was like being on a roller coaster and other times like being on a calm lake in a quiet boat.

I cannot have imagined reading this trilogy one book at a time. Each story picks up where the last one left off. Characters continue to grow and change during the whole story. There are layers and layers to these stories. It is absolutely a multi dimensional story that has a very defined beginning, middle and end.

4 solid stars!

Out of the Box Collection: A Second Chance Romance Series: The Complete 3-Book Collection by Jennifer Theriot

5 Stars is nowhere near enough……

Jennifer Theriot has plucked me out of my real life world and inserted me into a story that has completely consumed me for the entire time I spent reading it, and here I am afterwards still completely in awe of this author.

I chose this series because of the authors name being on the front covers, I have fallen in love with this authors writing reading a few of her other books…Reading this series has literally ruined me…I just can’t…. The other reason I chose to read this series was because of her taking a chance and going outside the box and featuring characters that I myself can completely relate to and understand.

I can honestly say I have never read a series that hit as many emotions as this series did. I felt everything deep within and seriously feel like I was transported into this dysfunctioning beautiful group of people. I love family sagas but this one went to a whole different level for me, and the bonds that were already in place and then those that were formed in this series again were perfection, one friendship in particular just blew me away. I cried so hard at times while reading, I had the air knocked out of me at times, I shook with anger at times, but I can tell you that I savored every single word on every single page.

Ive actually come away from reading this series with a few new thoughts about life and truly wish I knew how to join together the words to explain how much I appreciated this story.

This author is a master storyteller and not only will I reread this series many times but I will also own these books and will treasure them forever. I have a few favorite series and each one for reasons that keep them at the top of my list, this one as of this second and I am sure for many more seconds to come is my favorite this year and definitely at the top of my favorite series of all time.

I cant express in words how much I loved these 3 books..Thank you Miss Theriot!!!

5 +++++++ Stars

HOLY MOLY!! I so completely and sincerely utterly LOVED this book. I actually can’t believe I am able to not move on to the second one so that I can write this review. It’s already a given how much I love this author but she has taken it to a whole new level with this story.

I cried so hard when I read the last sentence..I could feel everything going on at that club, I could picture all of the kids, I could picture Ash and the love that was pouring out of him and I could almost feel the feelings that Olivia was feeling at that point.

The bonds that were written about in this story were beyond amazing and each character is a favorite for one reason or another, well, except maybe one and that one worries me just a bit so I’m bracing for that but have complete trust that Miss Theriot will handle whatever happens and comes up in the future of this series.

Saying that I am completely invested in this story is an understatement and I can not wait to begin Regifted.

I am so so happy I picked up this series, I’m not getting a whole lot done when it comes to being a real life adult but oh well, it will all be there waiting on me when I finish.

Thank you Miss Theriot for giving me a character that I can relate to!

Amazingly Awesome!!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Out of the Box Collection: A Second Chance Romance Series: The Complete 3-Book Collection by Jennifer Theriot is a box full of emotions, heartache, tragedy, betrayal and love to name a few. The characters are likable and make you feel part of the story. Olivia has uprooted her whole life to follow her husband across country to a new job. Only he drops a bombshell and turns her whole life upside down. In the midst of heartache she finds something that she never thought she would find and it turns out it is better the send time. Unfortunately not everything is smooth sailing and there are plenty of ups and downs that affect them all. The love and laughter these characters find within this motley crew of a people who chose to be a family will keep you turning the pages and following every step along the way with them.

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)

4 Stars

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)

4 Stars

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)

4 Stars

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!

Hands down, a wonderful gripping collection that should be on everyone’s bookshelf or kindle. Theriot continues to blow me away. I’m not sure I know how she does it over and over again. Wonderful characters and riveting plot development… this series … wow. Theriot will continue to be a must read author for me. And you should run, not walk, to read her latest. Just amazing.
