Review: Love & Other Disasters by Terri Jones

Violet Murphy has just landed herself in a world of trouble.

One minute she’s out on the town with her best friend, and the next, there’s a hot guy offering to buy her a drink. Normally, a man like that wouldn’t look her way. So…she panics. After a case of mistaken identity, a fake name, and way too much alcohol, Violet’s only hope of saving face is to never see his again.

Too bad life can’t be that easy.

J.P. Harper never expected to find himself down on his luck.

After all, he’s always been at the top of his game, saving struggling businesses and being paid well to do it. But when his latest project turns into a nightmare, one with a half-million dollars missing, it’s his reputation that’s at risk of going under. But a familiar face among the staff sends him back to that night he can’t forget. Is that the same woman? With his career and heart on the line, J.P. sets out for answers.

Can J.P. trust Violet and set aside that night to work together…or will their sparks ignite another disaster?


I’m just going to keep my review short and sweet for this one. Overall, I thought Love & Other Disasters was an ok read. I thought the characters were interesting and I loved the idea of their story. I enjoyed their chemistry and banter and I was excited to see where things go. However, I did have some issues with this story. The first being the third person point of view. That made it hard to connect with the story and is something that I personally struggle with when reading books in that point of view. The next issue I had was the pacing. The pacing, in the beginning, was great. But, somewhere along the way, things just started to drag and it felt like forever before anything else happened.

While Love & Other Disasters wasn’t a 100% hit for me, I’m still glad to have checked it out. I think this author has some great potential and I’d be willing to check out another book of hers in the future.
