Penny For Your Thoughts: A Sweet Romance (Sand Dollar Series Book 1) by JD Boudreaux – Review by Maura Harper

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS is a “sweet romance”.  A sweet romance as defined by Cathy McDavid: “sweet romances emphasize the developing romantic relationship, focusing on the emotional conflicts standing between the couple and their struggle to overcome those conflicts. Love scenes have no more physical intimacy than kissing. They can be tender or a bit more intense but always with undeniable sexual undercurrents which are gently stated rather than explicit. The characters can have ugly or traumatic pasts, such as abuse or rape or addiction, but none of that takes place in the here and now. Mild curses like damn are acceptable if used in moderation and not gratuitously.”

The typical sweet romances that I’ve read are shorter than full length novels and have a complete beginning, middle and end in its brevity. That is not the case with PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS. This is an extremely detailed telling of a story and, at times, it is so detailed that I found myself a little frustrated wanting the story to move quicker.

I really enjoyed how the story started out. I think it’s a great look at the human condition of how people help others in distress. There is a lot good about both of the main characters, I think the point sometimes got buried in all of the details. There are some really cute and funny moments while this relationship develops. It was all just too much.

I always appreciate an author’s hard work when putting “pen to paper” and you can see the effort that this author put into the story and I will keep an eye out for future books this author writes.

Penny For Your Thoughts (Sand Dollar Series, #1) by JD Boudreaux – Review by Krystal Gaston

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Penny For Your Thoughts by JD Boudreaux is book one in the Sand Dollar Series. This is a slower paced story focused on Penny and Alex. The storyline is smooth and flows from one point to the next flawlessly. I’m not quite sure about my feeling with this story, there were some real life struggles in it that I’m sure many can relate to. Penny and Alex each have their own issues and goals with life but can their love survive it?

5 out of 5 stars

The story Penny For Your Thoughts: A Sweet Romance (Sand Dollar Series Book 1) by J. D. Boudreaux is a contemporary romance book. It is a story that grabbed my attention from the beginning and had me hooked. I loved reading about the characters of Penny and Alex. Penny is a woman who has her future planned. She has the determination and drive in order to be successful. Alex is a man that is kind and thoughtful. He has a need to help others. He meets Penny through one act of kindness. What does the future hold for both Alex and Penny? Read this book to find out. This is a wonderful story that I enjoyed reading. There is romantic, emotional, and humorous dialogue. There are moments that are sad and also moments that are heartwarming. As you read about Penny and Alex, I got a better idea of how each one of them deals with situations that occur. There are characters that I grew to care about with each chapter that I read. The book had my emotions going up and down the entire time. The story had me lost in the pages and not wanting to put it down until I had finished it. There are other additional characters that are introduced. Some have a larger part than others. Each has their own part to play in the story as they interact with either Penny, Alex, or both of them together. This was a wonderful story to read and one I would recommend to others.

Penny has her future all planned out. Her new job as a reporter is the first step toward building a successful life for herself. Unfortunately, her first day on the job isn’t going as she imagined it would. On the side of the highway with a flat tire and open trunk all she can do is silently pray for a miracle…and then gets one.

Alex likes to think he’s a good guy—the type of person who loves to help others. A Good Samaritan. So naturally when he sees a woman stuck at the side of the road, looking all helpless his first instinct is to stop and help.

Little did he know that this one act of kindness would steer both their lives in an entirely different direction.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Penny for your thoughts by JD Boudreaux is the first book in the Sand Dollar series and a first book for this author. It is a lovely story that will have you laughing and crying as we watch two wonderful people meet and fall in love. You will find yourself walking with them as they find their way to love, but is love enough? Penny and Alex have never met anyone that has ever felt so right. They have never met someone they could see a future with but loving someone and being there for someone are two different things and will they be enough?

To find out you will need to grab a copy.
