    One thought on “All About Jenny”

    1. This is a book I originally read in 2012. I gave it 5 stars and put it on my absolute favorites shelf. I never reviewed it (I read it before my GR days) so I re-read it last night to see what all the fuss was about.The fuss? Nothing to write home about. This was an mildly enjoyable read, short, angst-lite. The sex was mostly off-page and there really wasn't a spark between the heroes. I liked tweener Jenny. She had some serious spunk. And that's about all I got for for ya.So, now we're at 3 star [...]

    2. All About Jenny is a wonderful, romantic story with a clear message of hope for those who no longer believe love is in the cards for them. The book’s charm sort of sneaked up on me, in the best sense of the word. After a fairly leisurely start, the first punch comes as a bit of a shock, after which it didn’t let me go. DJ, by his own admission, doesn’t do ‘sweet’ very often. But when he does – oh, boy! The combination of great writing, his understanding of people and keeping a certai [...]

    3. 1.5 stars: I think I could have fallen in love with these characters and with this story. Mark and Jenny are absolutely adorable (he's 100% the doting parent and she is a really fun tween) and they were what kept me reading.Clearly, though, I didn't love this book. The story and the characters are full of potential, but the narrative didn't do either justice. (view spoiler)[There should have been a sense of loss when Audrey died; there wasn't. Mark's panic at losing Jenny should have been more a [...]

    4. It was a nice and sweet book and I loved it up until the point Cole arrived to the picture. Don't get me wrong, he's a good character per se, but I've had a huge problem with Jenny's super fast and easy acceptance of him. Never mind her easygoing nature, but still to let a total stranger into her life and her heart so easy - it felt completely unrealistic to me, not to mention very unfair to Mark. I felt bad for him, because he sacrificed so much for Jenny and he raised her like his own daughter [...]

    5. Totally loved this book. I loved that Mark was such a great guy and stepped up and raised his niece. And who couldn't love that ornery little girl, she was freaking hilarious! Love H.E.A.s but sure wished this book was longer.

    6. I loved it! It's one of Manly's slightly more serious books. This one's a tear-jerker. It's not a long book and the story is appropriately simple. The characters have a degree of depth to them. The story and the characters had a heart and soul, something I find lacking in most of Manly's books. I was pleasantly surprised, because if Manly can write like this, then damn I can't wait to discover his other works that aren't shallow (shallow meaning focused on the sex, lust, glorifying machos, appea [...]

    7. 5 Awesomeness Stars!Author:D.J. ManlyBook: All About JennySeries: N/ARating: 5Date Read: 28/08/14Review:Thanks to the author for this book.Breath-hitching, cutely funny and off the charts with utter warmness.If there were more ‘Uncle Mark’s’ in the world, our kids would be in such better places.

    8. 3.5 starsI wish the cover has the 12-year old Jenny on it :). Any story with kids always get a plus from me. I like how open and friendly Jenny is, but at the same time, she knows how to get what she wants from her uncle Mark. Love how she keeps trying to get a dog (or a cat) and pushing Mark to date -- and when Cole comes to their life, reminds Mark that Cole is perfect for him :). I think both men are pretty likeable. The story is light and the pace is just right, without being too angsty or t [...]

    9. Sweet story. The relationship moves quickly but I didn't really have a problem with that. They were really sweet guys. The only thing that had me really scratching my head was the fact that Jenny was 12 but she was going into high school next year. 12 year olds are typically in 6th grade. She'd be in jr high. And she went to a Sr. dance? Her character seemed a bit old for her age. It didn't detract from the story since those were only minor details.

    10. This story was very sweet and just what I was looking for today. It doesn't have lots of action and the love may seem to come too quickly, but sometimes you just need really great characters and some sweet love.As a side note, the page count here says 150+ pages, but my Nook put the book at 80 pages.

    11. I actually enjoyed this book. When it first started I was a little wary of the whole "how is the romance going to show up with the two pigheaded people?" thing but it had a very nice finish and the Epilogue Whore was very satisfied with the way it ended.

    12. Loved this story. Very sweet and touching. Lovely characters, hot m/m romance and a unique story. Very entertaining!

    13. Very sweet story. I think the story and the characters were realistically done. I wished it could have been a little longer

    14. It was like reading about a heterosexual romance disguised as a love affair between two men. Now that I think of it, it probably was written that way and later on Mary was edited into Mark.

    15. this was really different for the author from the last several books that I read, I really enjoyed this book and hope to more on this level. Thanks for a good read.

    16. A bit like a Harlequin novel, simply written with a simple cliched plot. I, for one like HQ novel so it worked out well for me.

    17. Cute and waaayyy more fluffy/sugary than the author's usual writings. I liked this one, but I think I prefer that author's usual writing style.
