    A few weeks ago I read the blurb for The Plan and was immediately drawn to it. This story checked a few boxes on my “What I Love in a Romance” list and I was really excited to start reading it. A Second Chance, especially with an ex-spouse? Check. A baby or the possibility of a baby? Check. Older, more mature, characters. Check. And something that I wasn’t expecting, but is Manna from Heaven to me, a little angst! A HUGE “Praise the Lawd!...

    I received a copy of this book to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.We have all heard the story before. Woman feels her biological clock ticking and gets someone to knock her up. Not for love, but for the baby. Crazy right? That is what Marley thought and then she found out her fiance had a vasectomy. The life she thought she had was suddenly gone and she finds herself thirty three and without even a kissing buddy. When her mom's health takes a...

    The Plan is so much more than the blurb would suggest. It is a gorgeous story of love and forgiveness, hope and second chances. Fate truly plays a part in Gabe and Marley's lives when they each find themselves back in their hometown, twelve years after they last saw each other. Emotionally bruised and battered by what life has thrown at them, can they overcome their obstacles and finally be what the other needs to heal and move on.Beautifully des...

    Ella James does it again!I told my husband I should have waited until the weekend to start this book because I knew I wouldn't be able to put it down. I am now writing a review at 2 am. I loved Gabe and Marley's story. Ella James has a knack for writing characters that draw you in. I felt Gabe and Marley's angst on every page. She draws you in with a bit of mystery and I find myself anxiously reading until it is cleared up. I can't wait for the n...

    3.5 “Unplanned” Stars The Plan is an unexpected second chance romance between Marley and Gabe. It’s been years since they last saw each other or the divorce papers they signed. But when they both unexpectedly end up back in their home town sharing a house, they come face to face with the heartbreak they left behind. Not only that but the intervening years haven’t been easy either and both are reeling from recent tragedy. When hate turns t...

    This is a book that has everything; chemistry, romance, comedy, and chance. I love the interaction that was written in this book between Marley and Gabriel. That had tried to be together before but things just did not work out. Now fate has thrown them together again, will second chances help them discover love again. This book had me going through so many different emotions, and that made the book an amazing read. Thank you for allowing me to re...

    Heart stopping tension!!! The Plan by Ella James was full of everything I love in a romance; sexy, dominant, and troubled male with a strong, independent, and a little goofy female. I absolutely loved this story. Gabe was so freaking sexy. When that man growls, I want to grovel. Marley’s impulsive but absolutely perfect decisions made me smile the entire book through. And the sex – phew! – the sex was so hot; it truly sizzled my kindle. I w...

    5 UNIQUE stars! This is a Second Chance Romance with a subtle touch of Comedy. Gabriel McKellan is waiting for you!Holy moly! Ella James has done it again. She NEVER disappoints her readers. This time she delivers a sinful and funny book. I had a splendid time reading The Plan. It was a pleasant reading. I literally devoured it. Gabriel McKellan has ruined me for every other book boyfriend. It was really HARD not to fall for a guy like him. His i...

    I wanted to love this book because I love witty banter and girls who give shit back no matter how ridiculous her circumstances. It had all the elements but seemed a little disjointed. Gabe wasn't book boyfriend material and his drinking was or wasn't alcoholism?? I worry about that.Not supposed to be a bad review...I did give it a 4....so it's just my mood.

    When I first read the description of this book, I thought it was going to be a low drama Romcom type story. I got a lot more then I expected. It was a beautiful story with a second chance feel, but also had real life issues thrown in. I laughed at times, my jaw dropped at other times, and I shed a few tears along the way.Gabe was amazing. He was a jerk at times, but deep down he really was an amazing guy. He was dedicated to those he loved even w...

    “Don’t be stupid. I would use you so hard, you would ache for days. I’ve never hurt like this before, Marley. I’ll hurt you too.” His eyes on mine are hypnotic. His finger on my clit is heavy. My voice quivers as I say, “I want you to.”I wanted to love this book because... well... I loved Ella's previous stories. It sounded good from the blurb, but it didn't work for me that much. The hero was a little bit moody, almost depressive.

    ➳ Rate: 4,6 / 5 starsCan I just say first of all, that this series has been seriously so damn amazing!! I'm loving it so hard! And this book sure was worth the wait!!It's a book which you can easily read in one sitting, these characters will pull you in and not want to let you go. I devoured this in practically one day, it just wasn't in one sitting because you know.. I have obligations (aka go to uni). ‘Some kind of magic in those ordinary-...

    Some plans are overrated. Some have loopholes. Some are poorly thought out. Others are ignored. Plans aren't rules after all...The Plan is a cute and sweet story of unusual circumstances. Exciting and panty melting but still unusual. It's all kinds of crazy mixed in with some serious spontaneity. After all, having a hot ex can be hazardous to your libido.reviewed for Sweet Spot Sisterhood

    ***AVAILABLE NOW - FULL REVIEW***4 Pie Worthy CrownsThe Plan is an unexpected romance. Yes, it is second chance. Yes, there is a pregnancy plan. But that is really where it ends. The characters, particularly the hero, is darker than expected, their relationship is more tumultuous, and the story, although giving readers an HEA, has some unexpected plot developments.Gabe is a pretty angry individual, and he takes his anger out on everyone, particul...

    Thoroughly enjoyed this angsty, hot-as-hell read!"I stand and watch him for a moment, trying to understand how he still feels like mine."Marley never really planned to settle back down in her hometown, Fate, but that's exactly where the direction of her life takes her. And, she certainly never expected to bump into her ex-husband of twelve years. Nor, expect him to be her downstairs neighbour. "I can't help the way my gaze caresses her curves. Mi...

    This was a very sexy, fun second chance romance!Marley moves back home to her small hometown of Fate, Alabama to be closer to her ailing mom. Yes that's right, the town is called Fate, appropriately named for the theme of this book. Surprise, surprise she ends up renting the floor in a house right above her ex-husband Gabe. Their marriage ended on a really bad note and so this sort of read as a enemies to lovers as well.I really loved the beginni...

    WOW! What a fantastic 2nd chance romance story by Ella James. This is an emotional, touching story that will have you rooting for the main characters in this story.Marley moves back into her hometown in Alabama to help take care of her very ill mother. The past 10 years has been pretty bad for Marley- first her fiancée lied to her and didn’t tell her that he had a vasectomy, then the IVF she had done worked but she ended up miscarrying. She wa...

    Emotional and a bit tragic. I love these characters, Marley and Gabe just seem so very human. They have flaws and strengths. The book is written so well that you really feel all of their emotions...the hurt, the hope, the despair, and the happiness. Looks like Fate has brought these two souls together again. They definitely have a past. But, time and room for growth has changed them both. Surprising. Intense. Steamy. This book was hot and cold an...

    Marley does not hold back, “you have the best ***k,” she says, more to it than me. “I’ve thought so even when the rest of you is a ***k, too.” There are times Gabe likes to spoil his girl, "I come behind her, wrapping my arms around her waist… around her belly. I can’t help myself. “Do you see anything you like?” I ask her, peering down at all the jewels." I liked this book, loved the characters.
