Overview

Jayden Farrell accepted long ago that he would not have a passionate relationship with all the bells and whistles that were toted around. When his partner of eight years told him she had found someone who could not only give her all the bells and whistles, but wanted to marry her, Jay, as his close friends called him, was shattered. Genevieve Shelton, Genna to her friends, lived a quiet uneventful life with her Grams in a small town in Connecticut. She'd lost her parents at a young age and had been brought up by her Grams with old fashioned values and ideas. Genna didn't socialize much with the younger crowd, and had been reluctant to get involved with the young men who usually approached her. When her last relationship ended after only three months, she was in no hurry to get involved with anyone, that was, until Jayden Farrell walked into the bar where she worked. Genna found herself burning for him with a fire that threatened to consume her. Can this ill-matched pair find love? Can they too experience the bells and whistles? Read Jay and Genna's story and see how easy it is with the right partner ... against all odds.

I luckily received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I loved it! The first chapter had me wondering what was going to happen to poor Shannon…. Not a happy scenario! But it turns out well and author Ju Ephraime wove an excellent story of steamy sex, suspense, romance, and characters you will not soon forget! Not to go into detail, I want to give this page-turner five stars all the way! Looking forward to reading more from this author.

Scarred and insecure Jay decides to drown his sorrows in a bar. When he meets Genna behind the bar, the first glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel appears. However, Genna's also got her own struggles with old world values handed down from her grandmother. Emotionally heart-wrenching with highs and lows, this story had me rooting for the characters to come together. An awesome read!

A beautiful love story that has all the elements of romance within the pages of "Against All Odds." Just when Jayden Farrell, the story's main character was given up hope of ever finding the right woman. In walks Genevieve Shelton, the girl who was in no hurry to find love. As the famous Diana Ross sang in one of her many songs - "Follow love and it will flee. Flee love and it will follow." A romantic read.

Can true love ever be ill-fated? Only if it is the wrong person and in this case, love emerges between two people at a surprising time in both their lives. Jay, jilted after 10 years is walking his ex down the aisle into the arms of another man and Genna, after a 3 month brief attachment, are both free to love again but just not eager. This is a fast breaking plot that develops steadily in Connecticut from the keen eye of Jay instead of the woman's perspective, a clever and refreshing change! If you love fun, sexy romance...and who doesn't?....you will love this wonderful read for an inspired author.

Love Does Conquer All! When I began reading this novel, I felt very sorry for the main character Jayden. His long-time girlfriend walked out on him. He didn’t know it that day, but Shannon leaving would be the start of wonderful things for Jayden. His new life begins after he gives away his ex-girlfriend at her wedding. What a guy! After this selfless act, he meets a woman who challenges, bewitches, and helps him feel true love for the first time. This woman is Genna, a bartender who also feels an instant attraction for Jayden. The love story that follows shows that love can

I LOVED Against All Odds. Ju Ephraime has believable, well-developed characters, and her descriptions make you feel the emotions her characters experience. Great plot twists, and hot, steamy, passion and love are the perfect recipe for a beautiful, sexy, sensual romance. Ju's writing style is magnetic, and you will be compelled to read the book without a pause. Set aside time to enjoy this book on the weekend or when you don't have to work. Poignant and masterfully written, this book does not disappoint. Buy it, enjoy it, and fall in love with Ju Ephraime's writing. I highly recommend you check out her other books, as well.

"Against All Odds" by Ju Ephraim is a beautifully written romance story that follows the gradually growing connection between Jayden and Genna. The romance part is slow burning at first but there is drama and even some action to keep you interested in any case.  Although the two protagonists have a really great chemistry going on between them they are cautious and have to overcome the odds against them. Past hurt, trust issues and other drama interfers with their relationship. I was pleasantly surprised to see such a realistic portrayal of a romantic story, it makes for a welcome break for this reader not to be too sure of a happy ending and how the story is going to play out. Very enjoyable.

Beautiful Love Story..............My heart was breaking as I read the first chapter and was finding out how Shannon broke Jayden's heart. Then the story magically took a turn and I was drawn in by the attraction that Jayden had for Genna. It's a beautiful story about how the heart can heal with the love of another. Ephraime weaves in hot sex, romance, suspense, making you feel every emotion possible throughout the book. This is a story well written and I look forward to reading many more by this author. Well done

Where are the Jayden’s of today? Unfortunately in this story, he is with Genna. Another outstanding performance by Ju Ephraime with this contemporary romantic, high steam novel. Jayden has been heartbroken since his longtime girlfriend Shannon went off and married another, that is of course until the night he met Jenna. I think they were both love-stricken from the very first meet. After he gets totally inebriated at the bar she works at, Jenna takes Jayden home to her gram’s house. They are cautious about each other in the beginning, as they are not sure of each other’s past, but once they get all past the first hello’s, then it is full steaminess ahead for these two. This isn’t your average ‘high steam’ novel, but one of depth and a realistic storyline that can fit into anyone’s true-to-life scenarios. Amidst the bumps along the way of trying to become a couple, Jayden and Jenna show how two people in love can have numerous obstacles thrown at them, but yet remain true and supportive of each other. This is a read I would recommend for anyone that loves a good love story that will keep you coming back for more…too bad all endings can’t be like Against All Odds.

I received this book to give an honest review. Wow the chemistry that develops between Genna and Jayden was OMG! It was not your normal run of the mill let's meet and jump in the sack. They both took their time even though the chemistry would heat up and you would think here they go it didn't happen until much later within the story. This story doesn't have any magic like her other stories this has a bit of jealousy that rears its ugly head. I do have to say when I first started reading this and what Genna ended up doing I was like oh lawd, Jayden is in for it "run, run." But it turned out to be a good thing that Genna did. I am so glad that after what Shannon put Jayden through he didn't give up on love but took his time with finding it and making sure she was the right one. You can tell Genna and Jayden are perfect for each other but will it survive with the heartache that Jayden has been through and the one previous relationship that Genna was in?
