Broken Sand Dollar (The Sand Dollar Series Book 3) by J.D. Boudreaux – Review by Maura Harper

Broken Sand DollarBroken Sand Dollar by J.D. Boudreaux
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

BROKEN SAND DOLLAR is the final story in a trilogy and it’s important to read these books in order.

As with the other two books in the series, this is an extremely detailed story. It’s one of these stories that brings everything full circle and while I wasn’t sure what to expect – it all makes sense in the end.

Once again, the story is told from the male POV (side note: the prologue is a scene that features the cover of book 2 which I thought was super cool) and at times is a travel journal as we ride up the coast.

This whole series has been written with morals and values and is very clean.

Penny For Your Thoughts, Sand Dollar Series Book One, by J. D. Boudreaux

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!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Broken Sand Dollar by J.D. Boudreaux a four-star read that will put the broken pieces back together. This is the third novel in the Sand Dollar series, and I would whole heartedly recommend that you read them in order as they do flow and tell the whole story. Alex tells us his story and takes us on his journey, its one that will bring tears as well as laughter and joy. We watch as he learns and grows stating his own path that will bring him to what he most deserves. This is a beautiful story and one that will take you on a great journey.

5-Stars

Wish I Had A Nickle by J D Boudreaux was an amazing novel. It was a sweet and emotional read that I could not put down. I was fascinated with Alex and Leigh and totally forgot that he had written his story down for the therapist. Alex definitely was an interesting character and I lived how kind he was. I also loved that he was a Physical Therapist and found that something I had in common with him. This was the first book of this series I read and I am definitely going to check out the rest of the series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wish i Had a Nickel is book two in the Sand dollar series by JD Boudreaux. It is a tale of friends to lovers that was full of drama and feelings. This author brings the characters to life in a very clever and enthralling way.

Alex and Leigh were joined at the hip until separated by miles. They finally reunite, and begin on a journey of rediscovery and capturing back the connection they had so long ago. This story happened fast. So rast, I wasn’t ready for the finish. Each character is highly detailed, leaving no questions about who they are and what they want. Learning about them was exciting and breathtaking. The connection Alex and Leigh shared was riveting and certainly kept me glued to every word. I absorbed all that they felt, all that they wanted, all that they could give each other. It is always bittersweet when the end of such quality stories comes before you are aware it is happening. So engrossed with their story, it comes out of nowhere. What an experience it was to read Wish I Had a Nickel. I cannot wait for the next story in the Sand dollar series. 4 stars.

Penny For Your Thoughts: A Sweet Romance (Sand Dollar Series Book 1)
By J D Boudreaux
4 Stars

Penny for Your Thoughts is 1st book in the Sand Dollar Series for J D Boudreaux. A quaint southern romance This was a cute and totally enjoyable story with not only charming characters but with interesting secondary characters that capture your interest.

Penny is a planner. She has planned out her life and is taking the first step by getting a new job as a news reporter. She’s always been able to achieve success because of her determination but things aren’t going smoothly for her new start. Stranded on the side of the road Penny gets help from a passing motorist. But there seems to be more than meets the eye with this handsome Good Samaritan.

Alex thought he was your average good guy. So, when he spots a car stranded on the side of the road, he doesn’t hesitate to stop and assist the motorist. He’s not expecting this one act of kindness will irrevocably change his life. But isn’t that how fate works??

While I enjoyed reading this book, I was disappointed that there seemed to be items that were just left dangling. I don’t know if these will be addressed in the next book but I felt I was left with a lot of “what happened next” times during the book. The scenes Penny and Alex were priceless, I could have read more of those, for sure! This book has all some good feels, friendship, romance, and the story comes together nicely. Looking forward to having these characters pop up in future books.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Penny For Your Thoughts is a simple sweet romance. J. D. Bourdreaux is a mastermind at writing characters that are complex but, in the same fashion able to relate to them. I felt such a connection with Penny. I could see me being with her on this journey of a relationship with Alex. Alex is one who likes to help people in need and that is what Penny was a lady in need. Who would have thought that a simple random act of kindness would bring two people close together to form a bond that will test the age of time?

Penny For Your Thoughts (Sand Dollar Series Book 1)Penny For Your Thoughts by J.D. Boudreaux
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Penny for your thoughts was a good four star read and book one in the Sand Dollar series.

Alex notices a woman on the side of the road with a flat, he turns around to help her and gets more than he bargained for.

Penny is a reporter and when Alex stopped to help her she let him in on a little secret. It seems she had been on the side of the road for hours and he was the only one to stop.

Fate steps in and these two end up running into each other at the mall getting lunch. They move forward from here and get to know each. They both have some things in their past that they are trying to move forward from. It was great reading how their relationship developed and the things that were challenging them.

It may not always be in front of you, but it’s there. My love is always there. -Alex

Maybe not every question leads to an answer, and maybe not every answer stems from a question.

Alex was very kind and had a big heart. Penny was up and down for me overall she was a strong character. The secondary characters added a great element to the story. I was emotionally spent by the time I was done and the ending really threw me for a loop. I need to see where this goes and hope it continues in book 2. J.D. Boudreaux does a great job of pulling you in with her writing. Overall I enjoyed this book and suggest you 1-click and get started today on this series.

5 Stars

I started this series with Book 2 and I know better than to do that but I really was excited to get the history of these characters as I had a few questions when I finished book 2, I did get some of the answers I was looking for and it’s really hard to judge but I really liked booked 2 better than this one and I can’t fault the author for that since Im out of order.

The writing in this one was just as fantastic as the other and flowed smoothly…It did drag just a bit in some places but I found I still didn’t skim ahead.

I do know that I can not wait to jump in to book 3 as I’ve become completely invested in these people and this story…I’m most interested in Payton, she has had me the most confused through this story and I need to see where Alex ends up and if he can ever find his happily ever after.

Loved this book and absolutely adore this series.
