Overview

Under the guise of saving her best friend's marriage, Annie Harper catches the red-eye out of LAX to Oahu. Less than twenty-four hours after hearing Marissa wanted to kiss their old high school crush, Annie sails away with the handsome owner of the Erika Rose excursion boat. She only meant to keep Terence Javier from locking lips with Marissa, but the moment she learns his little girl needs an advocate, Annie brings her friend back into the fray and destroys the remnants of Marissa's anniversary vacation.

Caught between two women from the mainland, Terence Javier finds himself at a crossroad. Ten years ago, he had the dubious honor of having his high school photograph drooled on by Annie and Marissa's choir class. If not for his daughter and the ensuing custody battle, he wouldn't have given either woman more than an appreciative glance. When Marissa's credentials check out, he has little choice but to accept the savvy lawyer's offer of help. Knowing he's walking a tightrope, Terence prays he can purge the beautiful Annie from his mind and keep the balled fist of Marissa's jealous husband away from his nose.

When Annie Harper’s best friend Marissa calls her from Oahu to tell her that she has found their high school crush while on vacation, Annie heads to the island post haste to keep her friend from doing something stupid. Little does Annie know that it is a decision that will change his life and force her to confront her worst insecurities. If they can keep it together, the future is looking to be a happy one. This was not a typical “Love” story. Sure it has all the elements of love at first sight, awkward misunderstandings and great sex, but there is nothing shallow or syrupy about it. This is the story about the love of family, the one you are born to and the ones who choose to be in your life. The characters are what drives this story. They leap off the page and shine in such grand detail that they are almost more interesting than the main story. You actually feel like part of the family, any of the families in this story. Intricate little plot twists keep the story fresh and compelling. It was a read ‘til you finish kind of book. Written with emotion and heart, it is sure to appeal to that hopeless romantic in all of us.

I just finished reading Early One Morning. It is a book written by Aubree Lane. Two girls find themselves meeting a man they daydreamed over when they were teenagers. One of them winds up hooking up with him. They both find themselves helping him through a major custody battle that has more surprising twists than anyone could imagine. Will he get to keep his daughter and the woman of his dreams or will he lose them both? I really enjoyed this book. I tend to like books that have many dramatic twists in them. I feel they keep a person on their toes. It’s one of my favorite types of things I enjoy when reading. Don’t get me wrong, I can do without it in a book. I’m just saying it helps keep my attention. I have to give the author major points for all the curve balls that she pitched during this book. I didn’t expect most of the things that happened until they happened. In fact, I found myself many times wondering what was going to happen next. I have to be honest, when I first started this book, I didn’t think I would like it very much. In fact, I didn’t really get fully into it until the second chapter. After that, I got more and more sucked in. It grabbed more and more of my attention. I find myself glad that I didn’t set this book down like my initial intention was. I’m glad that I decided to stick it out and give it a chance.  I fully recommend this book. I’m very glad that I took the time to read it. This is definitely a romantic suspense that many romantic book lovers can sink their teeth into. I can’t wait to get ahold of the sequel to the book, Late One Night. It seems like a very interesting story. I guess I’ll have to wait and see!

New to me Author I really enjoyed this book.  It was slow to start but wow when It got started.. The rollercoaster of SHOCK never stopped.  You have 2 friends well actually 3 but we wont’ count one of them. Marissa and Annie went to  high school together and Marissa’s family pretty much adopted Annie as one of their own.  Throw in a high school heart throb by the name of Terrence and you get all kinds of shockers.  The book takes you through some pretty rough spots with a daughter of Terrence who may not actually be his daughter, add in 2 very well known Lawyers who in their golden years have caused nothing but heartache for their families. The romance is also pretty hot !!! Annie and Marissa have a bet going on who can kiss Terrence first but Marissa is married  LOL.  Who gets the high school heartthrob?  Well grab your copy and find out !!!

Early One Morning by Aubree Lane is one of those books that has you flipping pages quickly to find out what in the world could possibly happen next. I was completely captivated with the storyline and the characters right away.  Annie Harper has always been a big part of her best friend Marissa's family. They grew up more like sisters than just best friends. Marissa's Dad always included Annie in the family and was more like her father then her own parents were.  When Marissa calls Annie while on vacation with her husband, things start happening quickly. One things leads to another and Annie quickly falls in love with Terence Javier  and his adorable little girl Ericka. Terence has problems that Annie thinks Marissa can help  him with. This is when things start to happen quickly. I don't want to tell you too much about the storyline I will tell you there were times I cried and was completely shocked of what was unfolding before my eyes. There is plenty of drama and emotional scenes that certainly kept me turning pages very quickly. I could not wait to see what in the world was going to happen next and what effect that was going to have on all the characters I became very attached to.  Aubree Lane has created a fabulous story with intriguing characters that make you want to help them at times and every now and then smack a few of them. I even found myself feeling sorry for one of the characters that I did not think I would like at all to begin with.  I truly enjoyed Early One Morning and I would love to read more work by Ms. Lane. I enjoyed her voice and writing style.  I was given the opportunity to read this great book so that I may share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my pleasure to share my thoughts with you on Early One Morning.

Terence Javier had no clue that he had a whole high school choir of girls in love with him just because of his yearbook picture. Years later while Marissa is on a vacation for her anniversary she realizes that their dive instructor is none other than Terence. She calls her best friend Annie and lets her in on the fact that she has decided she is going to kiss him. Meanwhile Annie who is at home watching Marissa's kids get's jealous and decides to go to Hawaii to stop Marissa from getting what she wanted. Annie going to Hawaii and getting involved with Terence opens a whole new can of worms. I LOVED this book. I read it in a day. Aubree definitely brings her characters to life. There are lot's of twists. You never know who is up to no good or who can be trusted. I can definitely see myself reading this book again and buying more books by Aubree... I highly recommend this book. You will not be disappointed! ' Read and Reviewed by LSK Sweetheart Reviews '

Clever plot and interesting characters make this a great story! This was a page-turner. I became completely absorbed in the story and felt invested in what was happening to the characters. Ms. Lane is a writer with a unique voice, and the writing talent to make that voice easily accessible to her readers. I found myself marveling at her insight into human nature, and thinking about how and why my own relationships with friends and family have changed over time. To be entertained while being urged to think, all at the same time, is a very good thing. "Early One Morning" deserves all five stars.

If a novel is to be successful the very first criteria is that it should prove worthy to the expectations of the readers and i can with confidence say that 'Early One Morning' is one such. The emotions expressed are really touching. The inner and outer struggle of characters are portrayed with deftness. The writer uplifts the characters from local environment to the universal. The link in the story never breaks. Beauty of the story lies in the fact that the reader starts relating himself or herself with the characters. This is a wonderful work of fiction. It is a recommended gift for fiction lovers and perfect summer/vacation read. It deserves nothing less than 5 stars.

'Early one Morning' is a fantastic read. Aubree Lane is a master craftsman of plot. She has portrayed immortal characters. Once you pick up the book it is hard to put it down without completing it. The curiosity and interest remains alive from the first page to the last. You always wish to to know "WHAT NEXT". The situations, incidents and the happenings are gripping. Language is powerful. One just fell in love with the protagonist. The work is an artistic success and I highly recommend it for all those who wish to read quality literature. FIVE STAR RATING STRAIGHT FROM MY HEART.

I had the privilege of reading through a pre-publication draft of 'Early One Morning' for the author, Aubree Lane, in my role as editor. It was a rare pleasure. I found the story so absorbing that I had to use all my experience to keep focused on the job in hand. The book tells of the friendship between Annie Harper and Marissa Crandall, and the love between Annie and Terence Javier. It is about the complexities of divorce, parenting and custody. The characters are believable. There is sexual tension, there is humour, and there are more twists in the tail than a bucket-full of snakes; just when you think you have it figured, Lane pulls the rug from under you. It is a delight to read.
