very entertaining slow-burn read. The banter between Jill and Milo is Fun. The relationship is both complex and multi-layered. You get back story with Snippets but it’s enough to set the stage with a brilliant story. There’s tension but Milo’s character is complex in the intimacy shared within these pages with Jill and Milo will have you turning the pages as fast as you can to find out what happens next!!!
A seaside town, a local boy named Milo who is recuperating from an accident when he meets Jill, a girl who wants to be an actress visiting with a plan to be in a movie. Their first meeting makes Milo seem grumpy and Jill reacts the same way…but is there more than meets the eye?
It’s more than a decade later and both Milo and Jill end up in the same town where they first met. They both have lingering memories and feelings for each other. However, it seems their animosity from the past is what comes out! Whatever will happen to these two?
I love how the author Sylvia Stewart walks us through the past and the present to create such amazing characters with chemistry. My first time reading a book by this author! I will definitely be checking out her other books.
This was the first one I have read in the Carolina Kisses series but I will have to go back and read the others and other titles by Sylvie Stewart as I thoroughly enjoyed New Jerk in Town! The characters were very well developed and I liked the way Sylvie revealed little bits at a time so that you learnt more about the characters as you went. I stayed up into the night reading this one as I needed to know what happened to Jill and Milo! The alternating points of view and flashbacks added to the reading experience! Highly recommended!

New Jerk in Town is the second book in the Carolina Kisses Series by Sylvie Stewart. This is a Enemies to Lovers romantic comedy. I absolutely loved this book. From the very beginning I was hooked and couldn’t stop reading till I finished. I’m going to be honest at first I thought Milo was an ahole , but the more I read the more I understood him. Then there’s Jill I’m going to be honest and I thought Wow this chick is something else but again more I read my opinion changed. These two clearly have a attraction between them. She blames him for crushing her dreams when they were younger. They banter back and forth and at times my heart ached for them. Milo really isn’t a bad guy. But has he changed? Can these two have a future together? Find out what happens next in this absolute must read. I can’t wait to read more from this Author.
New Jerk in Town (Carolina Kisses, #2) by Sylvie Stewart was a great 5 star read.
This was a great 2nd chance romance.
Jill is back in town after drifting for a couple of months. Since her car has died she has no choice but to stay in town and she ends up getting a job at a local restaurant. What she didn’t anticipate was seeing Milo. She is looking for a place to stay and he happens to be renting a room.
Milo has his niece living with him which can be challenging at times.
When Milo sees Jill he feels like he has seen a ghost, it’s been 12 years since they last saw each other. Milo agrees to help her and things get interesting from there. Being together again helps them deal with things from the past .
Overall this was a great read, I really liked Milo and Jill. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. We get to see past and present with these two so that we can get some back history on them. I was pulled in with the authors writing and couldn’t put it down. If you’re looking for a great 2nd chance romance this is the one for you. 1-click and get started today.
New Jerk In Town by Sylvie Stewart was a great read. I love the chemistry between the two main characters Jill and Milo. They had a friendship 12 years ago and haven’t seen each other since that crazy summer. Now when Jills car breaks down as she’s passing thru, the last person she expects to see is Milo. Of course they fight when they first meet but have no choice but to speak to each when they need to. This book takes you on a roller coaster. I like how the author gives the reader the backstory to help us understand why Milo and Jill are the way they are towards each other. I really loved reading this book and have quickly become a fan of this author in the few books I have gotten to read so far!

New Jerk in Town: An Enemies-to-Lovers Romantic Comedy (Carolina Kisses Book 2) by Sylvie Stewart is a light romance with a lovely seaside setting. Milo and Jill first meet as teens when Jill, literally falls on his lap, their short-lived friendship did not end on the best of terms and when Jill finds herself in town again 12 years later Milo is the last person she expects to bump into. Jill is convinced that Milo hasn’t changed, he is still the same jerk he was when he ruined her summer dreams, but desperation puts them back in each other’s vicinity, will she change her mind. This is a funny, light-hearted romance with an interesting cast of characters. I am looking forward to reading Andie’s story in the next book.
New Jerk in Town is the first novel I’ve ready by Sylvie Stewart, but it certainly won’t be the last. I really enjoyed the characters and even though I haven’t yet read Jenna and Sam’s story or Ted and Haley’s story, I really enjoyed the world that Sylvie Stewart built for this series.
Jill and Milo met as teenagers. They slowly became friends through some miracle, but a misunderstanding by Jill caused everything they built that summer to shatter.
Milo always had a chip on his shoulder. One mistake changed everything and seemed to make things in his life much harder. But Jill was a breath of fresh air that summer.
But what happens when Jill finds herself stranded back in the same beach town. Broke and with very little options. What happens when Jill and Milo run into each other again?
I really enjoyed this story. I like that the hero, Milo, had vulnerabilities that most heroes don’t have. I like that Jill, even though independent knew when it was time to go for what she wanted. I look forward to more from Sylvie Stewart!

New Jerk In Town is the 2nd book in the Carolina Kisses Series. Each book is written as a stand-alone. I had not read the first book in this series and did not feel that I was missing any information from this story. This is a very well written enemies to lovers story that will keep you gripped from the very beginning.
Milo and Jill met as teenagers and their friendship was just blossoming and moving to the romance stage when Milo moved away leaving Jill devastated.
Moving on to the current day and Jill is back in town, broke and with nowhere to live, a far cry from the affluent upbringing of her teens. A chance meeting on her return has Milo offering her a place to live as she’s been staying in a seedy motel in a less than savoury part of town.
I loved Milo and Jill’s characters. Both have very strong personalities and they clash on just about every little detail. The simmering attraction to each other is bubbling under the surface as Jill fights her body’s reaction everytime she’s close to Milo.
This book has a very good, well written storyline centred around Milo’s career in diving and this plays out alongside the romance between the pair. I really liked that this book had a great storyline running through it that kept me entertained and wanting to keep reading to see what happened next and how this story ended.
I recommend this book 100%
New Jerk in Town by Sylvie Stewart is book two of the Carolina Kisses series. This book has a little bit of everything – second chance, enemies to lovers, friends to lovers. It’s definitely a good read.
Milo and Jill haven’t seen each other in 12 years and the last time they saw each other, it wasn’t good. There’s still some resentment even all these years later but now Jill needs somewhere to stay and Milo is stepping up. With them both staying under the same roof, they have the chance to get to know each other all over again because after all, 12 years is a long time. Jill is sure Milo is nothing but a jerk but will their time together prove her wrong?
There was so much tension between these two characters but through the book you could see their feelings toward each other change and progress. You can’t help but become invested in there relationship. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next!
