Overview

Thomas Eriksson thinks he has it all figured out.

"People crossed the street when they saw me. I’m not really sure why that was. I mean, okay, I might have looked a bit intimidating if I was being truthful with you. I’d changed since New York. New York represented a life that wasn’t real, not truthfully, anyway. No, New York was the “young, immature, in love, idiot" side of Tom. The “Tie-Dye Tom of New York City” didn’t exist anymore. Tie-Dye Tom was dead."

January Mac Lochlainn thinks she’s her own worst enemy.

"I quit Berkeley. Threw away a full scholarship. Plans, you ask? What plans?"

But they’re both wrong.

***
Tom approached me slowly and met me under the light on the stone walkway. He leaned over me so closely, my neck craned to see his face. His expression was one of confusion as he studied my own.

“What is it about you?” he asked me.

I gulped. “What do you mean?” I whispered, closing my eyes and swallowing again, my breaths becoming labored.

He lifted his hand and dragged the backs of his fingers across my jaw so lightly I barely felt them, but they made me feel dizzy all the same.

“How can you be this extraordinary, January MacLochlainn?” He leaned closer, a look of pure frustration and anger lit his eyes and pressed his lips. “And why couldn’t I have met you before I realized I didn’t want anyone...ever?”

Life for Thomas and January will never be the same again...whether they like it or not.

Meet the Author

Fisher Amelie resides in the South with her kick ace husband slash soul mate. She earned her first 'mama' patch in 2009. She also lives with her Weim, 'Jonah', and her Beta, 'Whale'. All these living creatures keep the belly of her life full, sometimes to the point of gluttony, but she doesn't mind all that much because life isn't worth living if it isn't entertaining, right?

Fisher grew up writing. She secretly hid notebooks and notebooks of dribble in a large Tupperware storage container in her closet as a kid. She didn't put two and two together until after college where it suddenly dawned on her, "Hey, I like writing". She's a bit dense.
"No, I'm not."
"Yes, you are. Put down that Oreo, your butt can't take any more."
"You're rude."
"Yeah, yeah."
Anyway, she likes to write and has finally beaten her self-esteem into submission enough to allow herself to be scrutinized under the 'other readers' microscope. "No! No! Not a cover slip! Last time it gave me a ra...." (mumbling)

With this amazing writing, you can not go wrong in reading such an epic tale of love!! What I loved most about this book is the great plot. Two people completely different, different goals, and of course do not like each other, destined for a great love! I loved this plot so much I just want to read it over and over again! It's hopelessly romantic and amazing. I like that there love did not happen over not. It took months, and lots of mistakes to bring these two together. The characters are well written. I love a good book were the characters have a mind of their own. It's not robotic, it's so clear that you can hear the characters screaming at you. Their loud and outspoken. The reader even gets to see a little of Callum & Harper. That made me smile :) The ending of the book is my favorite. I love how well they fit and mold each other. The compliment each other so good it's hard to wipe that dopey smile off your face. After reading the last scene and closing the book, I smiled for days, just thinking how wonderful this love story truly is. If you want a good romantic story, the hop on the Sleepless train. Once your on, prepared to looses you sleep and your emotions. Your heart will melt with the love and fantastic one lines you can not get enough of. Thomas & January is a great addition to the Sleepless series. It shows that no matter what, love knows no bounds.

I absolutely thought this was the cutest book ever...ZAP! I love the different names Fisher Amelie always gives her characters. I thought it was also cool it was a spinoff from another one of my favorites Callum and Harper. Thomas and January are really cute together and I love how the book flip flops between point of views. A great YA romance read, perfect for any age 14 and up! A must read!

I'll start by saying...thank goodness this book released. Last year I read Callum & Harper and quickly became invested into the lives of this group of friends. So, Fisher, THANK YOU for making this book happen. I was really looking forward to more. We meet tie-dye Tom in C&H, but I really felt like he was still a bit of a mystery to me. In this book, I really found myself drawn to Tom. He is hurting from a broken heart. The woman he loved, loved another. So, Tom takes off to Austin to scout musicians. He's cranky, stand-offish, and overall, just miserable. The one thing that keeps him going is the music. I absolutely loved that music was such a focal point in this story. Then, I loved seeing how Tom's stubborn heart began to heal when January enters his world. January is just simply darling. I really loved her immediately. I loved her sense of humor, her independent personality, her fiestyness, her innocence, and her vulnerability. She took a chance on Tom and he burned her badly. Once their paths cross again, she's not willing to make the same mistake. However, circumstances force the two together and they can't fight their attraction. Thomas and January really were the perfect fit. They had so much chemistry as a couple. I loved watching January break down Tom's walls. Tom is such a great guy. As a couple, I loved their mutual passion for music, their connection, and the love that they share. This book is a great love story for Adults and YA to enjoy. It takes you traveling around Europe, reuniting with the gang (which I loved), discovering new music, and most importantly taking the chance to open your heart to love. While Callum & Harper touched me deeply, I really identified with Thomas & January as couple. I loved, loved, loved the ending. Just perfect! It makes me happy when I don't want the story to end. I hope to see more of what happens next for Thomas, January, and the rest of the gang.

I went into Thomas and January's story with some extremely high expectations. How can Tie Dye Tom hold up next to Mr. Callum Unbelievably Amazing Tate. Spoiler: he's not Tie-Dye Tom anymore he is yummy Tommy ;) And you know what. Fisher did it again. She took my heart and played kick ball with it, yes you-you devious author you. It's still what I would call a Fisher Story, it's her style and feel, but it's its own in its own way. Thomas is a completely different character than Callum (Harper and January as well), you can't even compare the two because they are both well rounded and unbelievable in their own ways, but nothing alike. Where Callum is strong and independent (except when it comes to Harper, of course); Tom is emotional and raw. This book tore me to pieces, much like former, but in a good way. Fisher Amelie makes the reader experience feelings foreign and long forgotten, she has a gift and I can't wait to follow her stories. Thomas is a band scout (how cool is that). I'm a big music girl, so this book hit me in all the right spots. It's also a see Europe kind of book, ahh, it is great. I want his job. I could do it. Maybe. My favorite aspect of this book was the teasing and banter between T&J. They begin the story with a bang that quickly shatters into something less positive, but so entertaining and hilarious. As she did in Callum and Harper, Fisher switches back and forth between Thomas and January and it makes the book three dimensional and real. In case it's not clear and I haven't expressed my feelings well enough. I love this book and this glorious author. Absolutely positively love it. Fisher Amelie is the baddest ace of all time, she rocks. She has officially joined Abbi Glines and Tammara Webber in the true literary rock star category. I am officially a fan girl! Thank you maam for coming to Tulsa, OK!
