    One thought on “Finding Jordie”

    1. 3.5 starsThis book was kind of silly, kind of OTT but still cute and enjoyable. With the direction this went in the last 10% I definitely want to read the next book.

    2. First off, let me say, coming from a thirty-one year old from New York, I was CRACKING UP at all the references to my teenage years, NSYNC and Backstreet Boysw If H.J. would have talked about NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCKat would have been extra points. BUTe does reference my BF, Zach Morris A+ to that!! LURVE me some Mark Paul Gossilar. Jordie ROCKED! I liked her from page one, her abrasive nature (being from NY/NJ), her hard-working mind set and the way she cared about her daughter, friends and family [...]

    3. OMG!!! OH EM GEE!!! This book was amazing! It has all the great characteristics I love: intrigue, mystery, love, and friendships. This book took me along the emotional rollercoaster and left me feeling anxious and relieved among many other emotions. When I finished this book I was clapping my hands together. Harley takes you along a fantastic journey of struggle, triumph, love, sadness. The characters are easy to relate to and fall in love with. Throughout the first part of the book, I was think [...]

    4. Finding Jordie is unlike other romance novels I've read. The lead, Jordie, is tough and author, HJ Harley, shows that throughout the series. She's not a damsel in distress but she learns to connect with Nathan despite her being so tough. A great read with a combination of laughs and "awws". Cannot wait to see what H.J. Harley has planned next.

    5. ☆☆☆ 3.5 STARS ☆☆☆H.J. Harley gives us romance, mystery, and raw emotions in Finding Jordie, the first book in the Love Lies Bleeding Series.Jordie is tenacious, feisty and bold. Having suffered a major loss eight years ago she holds a lot of vulnerability inside. Not only owning, but running a bar in NYC her only other focus is her daughter Emma. Everything that comes out of her daughter's mouth is priceless, at times a little too sassy. But, hey! Kids are sassy these days, mine is, [...]

    6. Title: Finding Jordie Author: H.J. HarleySeries: Yes Release Date: October 4, 2014Rating: 4.50 - 5 stars Cliffhanger: NoSpoiler-free reviewHidden Gem Alert –If you like celebrity/ordinary girl romances.look no further. Finding Jordie by H.J Harley is perfect. Finding Jordie is a fairytale love story that will tear your heart in two. I cried a few ugly tears until I reached an emotion packed Hollywood-style HEA. I loved everything about this book – the plot, dialogue, angst…and especially J [...]

    7. I thoroughly enjoyed Finding Jordie. The heroine had this gritty, tough exterior hiding a tender vulnerability on the inside. Her life wasn't ideal, but it was hers. Devoted to her daughter, fiercely loyal to her friends, she'd learned how to pick herself up and brush herself off. Jordie endured and her heart was perfectly safe for years - until the right man came along.Nathan has his own trust issues and protective barricades, but those collapse when they meet and he feels genuine sparks for th [...]

    8. OMG – can I give this book six stars…please??? I loved this book! Fast-paced, funny, sweet, full of tension, smart – did I mention I loved the heroine, Jordie? Sassy, smart, full of piss-n-vinegar and strong as the day is long. Makes me want to go to NYC for a girl’s night out with her and her BFF, Rachel - now that would be a fun night! Holler! And then there was Nathan – purely scrumptious! Ms. Harley has hit this one out of the ball park! I’m jealous of all those who are just abou [...]

    9. NB: In the interest of full disclosure, I edited this novel for the author before she found a publisher. HJ has a naturally good sense of story, and although she claimed to me that her New Jersey upbringing had destroyed her use of the English language, she writes in a very natural and charming voice. I will use this book as an example of an author finding her voice to future clients. I am asked to look at a lot of romance novels as an editor. This one won my heart because it feels real. It's no [...]

    10. Three words to describe this book- Love, Humor and Heat. This book is just too fun and will make you laugh and laugh. Jordie is so sassy and so funny, she is a single mom widowed who owns a bar in New York. Nate is a mystery man who steals her heart. These two together equal lots of heart and heat, they also embark on some crazy antics and situations that will keep you reading and you won't be able to put the book down! The dialogue in this book is simply brilliant humor at its best. 5 star book [...]

    11. FINDING JORDIE is a wonderfully well-written story about a woman who finds love, when she least expects, in a man whom she has no idea who he truly is until she's totally unable to resist him. Nathan Harper is a good man who has feared letting anyone get too close because of trust issues, but opens himself up completely to Jordie and her daughter. He then finds himself in the unexpected role of lover, protector, friend, and father figure. The secondary characters are equally stars in this contem [...]

    12. What a ride!!! The characters are so real you can almost touch them on the pages. The narration is told to the reader, Jordie is telling you her story, as if over coffee or, better yet, a drink at The Post! Conversations flow off the pages with such fluidity I became involved with the entire cast, with the entire story, and Nathan oh my!!! These two had more sex than gerbils under a full moon! Real, believable sex, the kind you have when you are just starting in a relationship and can't get your [...]

    13. A friend of mine recommended this book to me after her book club read it. She is not a romantic suspense fan at all but she said this one was so different she was glued to it for 10 hours. So naturally, I had to pick it up. My husband had asked me if I was having hormonal issues while I was reading this book because I wasn't just emotional I was all over the place emotional. One minute I'd be laughing, the next sobbing. A real roller coaster ride that I enjoyed very much. I hope Ms. Harley 'has [...]

    14. Jordie was getting by with her daughter and she thought she didn't need anyone else in her life. Until one night, a bar fight happens in her bar. While taking care of the hateful guys, she is hit and when she goes back to take up for herself, she is grabbed out of the way by Nathan. Nathan enters her life and her whole world is turned upside down. In this story, we have so many twist and turns that you will be wondering what is going to happen to everyone next. Can their love withstand all that [...]

    15. Sadly, this is a DNF for me. I'm really upset over it because Finding Jordie had such potential. I was loving the beginning, couldn't put it down, but then insta-love hit me smack in the face when the heroine said she could see herself loving the hero after five sentences between the two. I tried to continue reading for quite a few chapters after, but it just wasn't working for me. I think this is just one of those books everyone loves but me because there are many glowing reviews for it. Give i [...]

    16. What can I say, HJ has a truly remarkable voice. She's so authentic, it made "Finding Jordie" a thoroughly entertaining read. Some of the lines left coffee all over my kindle screen. Others, induced tears that were quickly followed up by a smile. The only disappointing aspect of the book was the fact that it ended. I'd happily read it again, and will definitely read anything else she produces.

    17. This was an amazing read. I laughed a lot and was sobbing at the end. The journey that H.J. takes you on is a bunch of twists and turns but in the end you feel the love that these two characters share. The mystery that is intertwined with the love story makes it so you don't want to put it down. This is a book is a keeper and I can't wait to see what H.J. has for us next.

    18. Not my usual genre, but I can honestly say I enjoyed this book. I read it from cover to cover in one sitting, not something I do unless I am really into the story. Jordie was a very real and believable character and the author did an excellent job of putting you into Jordie's thoughts and life. The twist at the end made the "happily ever after" so much more satisfying.

    19. I was lucky enough to be able to pre read Finding Jordie before it is published. Its a great book for a first time author. Jordie is a strong female character that despite all the trials in her life she still pushes forward. Nathan is so swoony I wanted to be Jordie at moments. The turn it takes in plot totally caught me off guard. I could not read fast enough.

    20. Incredibly well written story that draws you in from the first page. Unusual mix of romance with serious issues and themes, all deftly handled by the author. If you are someone who saves your non-work/non-mom related reading until bedtime, be prepared to exist on a less sleep while you are reading it becasue you won't want to put it down!

    21. I could NOT put this book down!! Once I started it, I didn't sleep until it was finished. It had a very original plot line with characters that I instantly made a connection with. I laughed, cried, and laughed some more throughout the entire book. I can't wait to see what's next for H.J.!!

    22. H.J. Harley’s debut novel was one I enjoyed from beginning to end. Jordie, though fierce, is a complex character who has dealt with her life by being an extraordinary mother, business owner and friend.Single mother, Jordie, has had to grow up fast and take care of the things that are the most important to her. Taking a huge back burner is her love life until she meets Nathan, who happens to be a movie star. Not that Jordie knows this because she doesn’t have a smart phone and she hardly ever [...]

    23. ***I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review.***Jordan “Jordie” Spagnato is a single mother who is a true survivor. After losing her husband years ago in Iraq, she picked herself up and made a life for herself and her daughter Emma. She has a great apartment and is the owner of a bar that is considered a “hot spot” in NYC. She has a wonderful sister and brother-in-law who help out with Emma so she can run the bar, and she has a loyal, snarky, wonderful best friend, Rachel, who [...]

    24. Don’t you just love it when you stumble on a new author and good book? While I was attending The Tennessee Valley Author Event , a very well known author pulled me aside. She said, “There is a book I want you to read. I want you to promise not to look at the cover. Just read the book. It’s very good.”How could I not read this book. My curiosity was piqued.When I opened this book, I tried very hard not to look at the cover. From the very first paragraph I was drawn into the book. I could [...]

    25. Review originally posted at Ramblings From This ChickI really enjoyed this book! Finding Jordie was so good, and I will definitely be reading more by H.J. Harley in the future. This book was well written and entertaining, and I didn't want to put it down. I can't wait to read the next book in this series and get more of these amazing characters.After losing her husband, Jordie Spagnato returned home to New York to raise her daughter alone. She bought a bar and has turned it into a successful hot [...]

    26. 3.5 stars really great read, and great job for a first time author. I really loved how this book started out, had me laughing my ass off, right away I knew I was going to like Jordie . Loved the setting of NYC, I may be biased for my city! This is one of those books that are really hard to put down, it moved at such a good pace and had a lot of twist and turns, and great characters. I loved jordie and Nathan together. Nathon's character reminded me a lot of Rob Pattinson, shy, endearing a bit cl [...]

    27. I quite liked this book. It had love at first sight, soul mates, suspense, hilarious friendships, family and lots of drama.Normally I complain that a lot of relationships in books go to fast to really feel their connection and even though this relationship went at light speed it still just felt right between them.I loved Nathan and Jordie together right from the start. Even though it was really fast their connection and comfortability just kept getting stronger and stronger. Nathan's instant lik [...]
