Overview

Bedwarmers. It's the name that Rayna chose to call the men that she shared her bed with when the need was too great.  It was a safety measure.  A person couldn't get their heart shredded if they allowed no one near it.  Rayna Norton's sisters and mother were the only ones allowed in her heart.  Life was great just the way it was.  Her sisters seemed to feel differently.
Christopher Leigh is the perfect man to combat and disrupt Rayna's way of thinking.  He is a man with a creative mind and a determined heart. He sees Rayna at her sister's restaurant and immediately knows that he needs to have this woman in his life. The artist that he is sees the beauty of the woman she is and the gift of the future they could have. He just has to convince the ever reluctant attorney that a life shared with him will be one worth her time.
Rayna's issues run deeper than Chris and her sisters could ever perceive.  Her chosen way of life has more to it than meets the eye.  Will Chris be able to get Rayna to see that he is not like the men of her past?  Will Rayna lose out on possibly the perfect man for her because of her own stubbornness?  Or will her sisters intervene on her behalf, yet again?
The Norton Sisters is a series about six sisters that share the same last name, but are six entirely different women. The stories of the six almost 30 to in their thirties women will touch your heart and make you laugh out loud. The sisters by age ranking: Zoie, Wynter, Rayna, Nyema, Lynnia and Chyra are there for each other always. It follows the lives of six sisters running their own businesses, falling in love and dealing with the trials that come.  They follow their own little "Norton Code": "In the end, family means everything and your sisters hold you up. No matter what may come."

E. L. R. Jones began writing when she was just beginning her teen years. A pen in hand meant she needed to vent words that she couldn't otherwise express. Living a life that was already filled with pain and heartache, Ms. Jones began writing poetry. The ability to release the barely contained emotions was enough to inspire her to take Creative Writing classes in college.

Finding her stride with creative writing, she continued to write. E. L. R. Jones has put thought to page to amass quite a collection of work. Inspired by life and the dreams that press her to give "voice" to her characters, she is excited to bring her first work to fruition. There will be many to follow.

Ms. Jones currently works in Customer Service in Michigan. She has plans to move to the Georgia area and possibly educate other aspiring Authors. Enjoy the excerpts from an overactive mind!

Fantastic Read!!!! This was the first book I read of E L R Jones, but I can definitely say it won't be the last. Jones is a wonderful writer and this book has a great storyline. I love Chris and Rayna and can't wait to see what is in store for the other Norton sisters. This story will make you laugh, cry, and sometimes a little of both. The book had me interested from the start and I loved the relationship that developed between Chris and Rayna. They are both strong characters

5 Star Read~ I highly recommend this book! I really enjoyed reading this story. I loved how each of the characters were so beautifully written that it was easy to enjoy each of the Norton ladies so Much. Rayna is such a strong character and I love how you could see her change and accept her past and herself all while holding her ground and doing it her way! Zoie with her mothering and nurturing. Lynnia with her take charge and get her way personality and all the other sisters all work so well together as characters that I was drawn in to this story right from the beginning . Mama Norton is also such a great character she reminds me so much of my Grandma with her No nonsense and at the same time care free look on life to her putting her daughters in their place when needed Then there is Chris who is such a great male lead he’s sexy, strong, loyal, and he sees the potential in Rayna and knows right from the beginning that a relationship with her will be a uphill battle but one that is so worth it.The love and relationship that develops between Chris and Rayna was such a beautiful Romance to read it was so realistic and the events progressed as they would in real life they happened in such a way that I could picture them together in 50 years. I Laughed I cried and I even wanted to yell at Rayna and Chris at times in the book. I could feel all the characters emotions leaping off the pages this story is written in a way that you become emotionally invested in the characters and their stories right from the start, some parts of this book will make you reach for a tissue sometimes with sad tears (like when Rayna finally comes clean about her past) and sometimes because your laughing so hard you can’t stop the tears ( like in the first scene between Rayna and Chris I laughed so hard for like 5 minutes) This is such a wonderfully written story with beautifully written Characters I look forward to reading the stories of the other Norton sisters.

An amazing story of family solidarity, with the usual family arguments of course. With the maneuverings of her sisters, Rayna meets artist Chris Leigh. Even though his glances can set her on fire, she stubbornly doesn't want anything to do with him. Her shenanigans while trying not to be set up, along with those of her sisters while trying to set her up will have you on the edge of your seat. I cant wait to see who the next sister is to fall in love and who the "perfect guy" is going to be. Everyone should read this great book.

To, too bear, bare, sating gown, left out letters making is instead of his. Difficult to read sentence structure means sections have to be read over again to get the idea. Chaning context/tense midway through a sentence. More than once. An ending that felt rushed and thrown together. I won't be going along for the rest of this one..
