Meet the Author

Jessica Wood writes new adult contemporary romance and chick-lit.

While she has lived in countless cities throughout the U.S., her heart belongs to San Francisco. To her, there’s something seductively romantic about the Golden Gate Bridge, the steep rolling hills of the city streets, the cable cars, and the Victorian-style architecture.

She loves a strong, masculine man with a witty personality. While she is headstrong and extremely independent, she can’t resist a man who takes control of the relationship, both outside and inside of the bedroom. ;)

She loves to travel internationally, and tries to plan a yearly trip abroad. She also loves to cook and bake, and—to the benefit of her friends—she loves to share. She also enjoys ceramics and being creative with her hands. She has a weakness for good (maybe bad) TV shows; she’s up-to-date on over 25 current shows, and no, that wasn’t a joke.

And it goes without saying, she loves books—they’re like old and dear friends who have always been there to make her laugh and make her cry.

The one thing she wishes she had more of, is time.

My Review: If you haven't read the first book in this series you will find spoilers in this review.  I was given an advanced reading copy in exchange for an honest review.  I happen to be one of the lucky people that read the first book in this two book series shortly before I received this book. The first book ended with a vicious cliffhanger and I'm glad I didn't have to wait long to continue the romantic story of Emma and Brandon.  The last book ended after Emma met a woman claiming to be Brandon's girlfriend. Seeing as how Brandon is the love of Emma's life this was a devastating blow. This book picks up a little less than three days after the alleged girlfriend, Desiree, showed up at Brandon's door. Needless to say Emma is in a state if shock and heartache. He's been trying desperately to get in touch with Emma, but she can't bring herself to talk to him. Luckily Brandon doesn't give up easily and finally gets to tell his side of the story. Desiree isn't exactly who she claims to be, but she is from Brandon's past. Both Brandon and Emma have secrets from their past that they're not ready to share and things seem to get back on track with them. Unfortunately Desiree brings new things to light for Brandon and he ends up keeping more secrets from Emma. Meanwhile Emma still has her own past and secret that she is yet to share with Brandon. All of the lies and secrets between them could possibly destroy the relationship they've both worked so hard for.  I was pretty sure I was going to love this book after reading A Night to Forget and I was not disappointed. Emma and Brandon's story is full of ups and downs, and though a bit dramatic (what's a love story without a little drama), it rings true to life. Brandon and Emma are both well developed throughout the two books and extremely human and realistic. I fell instantly in love with these two characters and I found myself tearing through the pages to find out what would happen next and ultimately if they would have their happily ever after in the end. I don't want to give anything away, but this book ended perfectly for me. It was everything I was hoping for.  The writing itself manages to be both smooth and lyrical at times. The book is well paced and nicely organized. It's written from both Emma's and Brandon's points of view and this added depth to the story. I always love reading male points of view from both female and male writers. I thoroughly enjoyed Jessica Wood's take on the male perspective.  If you love beautiful, well written love stories with intense ups and downs this book is for you. It's full of drama, yet still realistic and believable. The epic love story of Emma and Brandon will suck you in from the very beginning and not let you go until the very end. I'm actually sad this book was such a quick read for me. It was one of those books that you rush through because you have to find out what will happen next, but then once you're done you curse yourself for not savoring it. I look forward to reading whatever Jessica Wood writes next!

I loved this book. It was everything I could've asked for all wrapped up in a pretty bow. It's the perfect ending to an amazing story. The intence twists and turns had me thrown for alttle while but oh how I loved the way it turned out. And freakin sweet, sexy and HOT is Brandon? Emma is really too sweet and naive for her own good sometimes. But the story would not be what it was without her. I extremely recommend these two books to everyone.

The Day To Remember instantly picks up where A Night to Forget left off, as we follow Emma and Brandon on their passionate journey into their new relationship. After Emma finally believes nothing can come between her and the man of her dreams, unforeseen revelations take these two lovers on a tumultuous and heartbreaking journey, where events and new characters threaten to sabotage any chance Emma and Brandon have of being together. As revelations spark the deep and buried pain Emma still carries from her past, will Brandon be able to prove to Emma that his love for her is the only thing that matters? Or is love not always enough to surpass certain obstacles? As we follow Brandon and Emma on their tumultuous journey, the Author consumes your attention and pulls you into the world of these endearing characters and the pure, all-consuming love they share. Jessica Wood’s writing is beautifully fluent and poetic, and this time around she sets up and threads together a vivid scene of two lovers, and smacks you with the ultimate unexpected shocker in the process. Firstly let me say that I absolutely love this series; I love the endearing nature of Emma and the gorgeous, sophisticated Brandon, and I loved how their story began. When I began The Day to Remember I had some ideas of where the story might possibly flow, but nothing prepared me for the emotional and surprising journey I was taken on. This book was an absolutely brilliant conclusion to the series. Emma’s character develops into a young woman who displays the ultimate act of selflessness after experiencing such heartbreaking and devastating revelations growing up. I loved the growth of her character and the expansion of the plot – where Book 1: A Night To Forget centred on the growing and forbidden work relationship and extremely consuming attraction between these characters, Book two delves into the struggles of love and the development of trust within a relationship. There were also some incredibly hot scenes that reignited and reinforced the amazing chemistry and passion these characters both share. There was also the introduction to new supporting characters who added a new depth to this story. Damian was the gorgeous, handsome bad boy bartender, who provided the perfect comfort for Emma, and Desiree, brought a great sense of drama and heightened the intensity of this story also. The chapters are structured in alternating POV between Emma and Brandon, and as I always say – nothing melts my heart more than being allowed insight into the male’s perspective – and Brandon’s POV as well as Emma’s was fluent, compelling and realistic. The two chapters written in Desiree’s POV intercepted the alternation of Emma and Brandon, but added a much needed insight into her importance within the story. I loved that Jessica Wood allows the reader to delve into the mind of this woman and explore the heartache she also suffers. It allows a certain sense of empathy to be felt toward Desiree and what her character has experienced. The plot twist honestly surprised me and I found myself so engrossed with this book that I devoured it in one sitting. Rarely, does a sequel exceed how amazing the first book in a series is. The Day To Remember for me is one of the best. This was the perfect conclusion to a beautiful story about love – the passionate, unrelenting kind. It made my heart race, it made me laugh, and it at times brought tears to my eyes. I could not possibly pin point a single thing I did not like about it. I highly recommend this book and the Emma’s Story series. Yet another title to add to the ‘Favourite’s’ list. 5 Shiny Stars

This book takes up where A Night to Forget left off. Jessica tells us what happens to Emma and Brandon and all the twists and turns that they have to go through to get their HEA. Jessica tells a great story and can't wait to read anymore that she writes.

Great conclusion to the Emma's Story series! I LOVED it! Brandon is so swoon-worthy, I was fanning myself! This book was more emotional than the first and I found myself laughing, crying, and yelling at some of the characters while I read it. I love the way Jessica writes and I can't wait for her next book!!!

A great conclusion for Brandon and Emma!! Hes literally her dream man!! What started in her dreams, continued in Emmas day to day life. Secrets from both their pasts continue to plague them as they try to learn to build a life together and trust! And it dosent help when Brandon's ex shows up unannounced and ready to stir trouble!! Jessica delivered a great story, and i was very happy with ending!!! Will recommend to friends and look for more from this author!

I really enjoyed the conclusion of Emma and Brandon's story. What seemed like insurmountable odds have been resolved. I could not help myself while I was reading this story... I hated Desiree. Sorry, I know this is a very strong feeling ... not necessarily appropriate for fictional characters, but I could not help myself. This woman was manipulative and capable of doing everything in her power to accomplish what she wanted. I had a feeling about her from book #1 that she would be this bad. I just did not know how far she was willing to go to break up Emma and Brandon’s relationship. Emma and Brandon’s love affair is gentle, emotional, sensitive, and yes...the type that romance novels are made of. I am glad Brandon hung in there as well as Emma. Great story, great read, very enjoyable!

Let me start by first saying that in order to get into The Day to Remember you have to first read A Night to Forget. Night to Forget ends with a huge cliff hanger that made me so upset that I couldn't wait to read more and Day to Remember starts off right where the last book left off. I loved this book! Jessica Wood gave us so many twists and turns, heartbreaks and new characters. I was given an ARC for this book but bought the first part and I would definitely recommend this book to anyone over 18. There are some hot and steamy scenes so if you are not into that it's not for you but give it a try. It's good! The characters in this story just call out to you. I couldn't put the book down. I read it in about a day and a half. The story just flowed and made you want to read more. My favorite character is Emma. She has been through so much and she is still strong. She has great friends and a wonderful mom who is always there for her. If you haven't bought this book yet you need to run to any online book seller and one click immediately! Worth every penny!!!!

Well I know it is no secret what a fan of Jessica's I am! Her writing speaks to my soul! She has only been an official author for a few months now and has taken this community by storm! Her books give us a little of everything without getting boring or overly raunchy. *** If you have not read book 1 then this review may contain SPOILERS*** Well after the heart stopping cliffhanger from book 1 we pick up a little while after with Emma not handling the news too well! Thankfully Brandon being the shining prince that he is, doesn't give up! He tracks her down and they talk it out. At that point I thought it would be all cupcakes and rainbows... I seriously did not see the MAJOR BOMBSHELL coming!!! Even as you are reading this, there is NO way to predict what happens! The suspense is killing you now right? Both Emma and Brandon have secrets in their past that will come back and bite EVERYTHING in the ass!!! I literally had to put my IPAD down in fear that I would not get my happy ending. BUT... I am glad I kept reading because the drama was FAR from over!!! FYI I like writting in caps for effect!! LOL!! This is a dramatic must read where the ending works out how it SHOULD. That does not mean it will end how you want it. Or does it? Looks like you will have to find out! It really was a perfect sequel to A Night To Forget, and those who have read it, Jessica does not disappoint! Rating: 5 Stars *** I recieved an ARC in exchange for an honest review***

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review and this is no way altered my review. First I must say that if you haven't read, A Night to Forget, I recommend that you read that first. The Day to Remember starts off where, A Night to Forget ends. In this book we learn more about Brandon and Emma's past. There are continue reading the series. Jessica you did a great job, I wish you continued success!!!
