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 even 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. This series is one that follows the lives of six sisters running their own businesses, falling in love, and dealing with the trials of life. Alone each are great and independent women but together they show that family is the greatest asset that you can have. They follow their own little "Norton Code": "In the end, family means everything and your sisters hold you up. No matter what may come."

    Fantastic Read!!!! This was the first book I read of E L R Jones

    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 read

    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.

    * I was gifted an ecopy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.*
    I really wished I could have given this book more then three stars but the editing was so bad that it took me so much longer to read and re-read parts of the book.  I would have loved this book if it were not for all the editing/grammar/spelling errors throughout the story. There were so many typos, misspellings and wrong usage of words that it was disheartening as it distracted from the book and from the possible four or five stars that it could have been. It was very choppy and confusing at times.
    In spite of the errors I enjoyed Rayna's story and look forward to reading more from this author. The book has a good storyline but the various nicknames of each character are confusing at the beginning and most of the way through until you almost give up trying to figure it out. The author switches from names with little to no thought as to how the reader will understand who is being discussed and several times I had to go back to see who Zoie was referring to.  I also didn't like the way that the author would just shorten names to be Z or L Boogie, as it disrupted the flow of the story. Overuse of descriptions also sometimes bogged down the telling of the story and made the flow almost stop to the point where the reader wanted to skip that part of the story.  The reader did not need to know in complete detail about the exact details of Rayna's shower basket or multiple closets and organization to the closets when it had nothing to do with the storyline itself. 
    Don't get me wrong, it is still worth a read and the sisters are entertaining (once you get them all straight).  The love they feel for each other shows through the pages and the girls follow their own little “Norton Code”: “In the end, family means everything and your sisters hold you up. No matter what may come.” I am looking forward to the next story and I am hoping that the editing is better so that the story can reach it's full potential.

    This is the first book I have read of E.L.R. Jones and it WON'T

    This is the first book I have read of E.L.R. Jones and it WON'T be the last.

    Amazing story of an amazing family, the love and closeness even with all their individual quirks. This is Rayna Norton's story, a beautiful and successful lawyer and due to her sisters intervention, she meets her match in Christopher Leigh, a gorgeous and talented artist. The story pulls you in from the start to the finish, it had you laughing, crying and rooting for this couple. You'll have to read the story yourself to see how things turn out.

    Can't wait to read the other sisters stories you see what is in store for them. I highly recommend this book-you'll love it just like I did! This book was a gift from the author. (BO)
