I always love a book that actually shows a relationship progress beyond the angst and misunderstandings.

At first I found this book amusing but as the story went on it was just drug out too long.

Super cute contemporary romance, set in Davis, CA. College crush turned drunken hook up...can they turn it into something real when they've started in the middle? This story is so reminiscent of those heady days of the mid-twenties, when you are a grown up, and you still haven't started your grown up life, but you are about to. Really sweet story, funny, cute.

Cocktails and Dreams is a well written, modern love story. You follow the lives of Jena and Nicholas as they work through the trials and tribulations of beginning, maintaining and ultimately owning their relationship. Are you tired of reading simple romance stories where it's all hearts and flowers and chocolates with no earthiness or sense of normality? Then this book's for you. There's romance, there's fun, there's sex, there's love; but there's also a "humanness" in these characters that is rarely found in fiction - they make mistakes, they're not perfect and they deal with real issues. This is what makes this book so attractive to me. Sure, everyone likes escapism in literature, but I also like characters to whom I can relate...and this books gives me that, right down to the very last page.

Her characters are charming and sincere and the whole thing definitely brings back memories. Well written and very enjoyable! Perfect a day by the pool, at the beach or in the hammock in the back yard.

I was fortunate enough to read this story in it's original form and see it's genesis into this gorgeous summer read. I've loved these characters forever and when they "speak" I hear their voices in my head. This happens because of Autumns wonderful writing style and ability to get into her own characters heads. There is so much more I can say about this book but I'll only bore you. Go buy it and read for yourself and you'll see what I mean. I can't wait to read more of Autumns work when it comes out.

I had zero expectations when I purchased this book but it wouldn't have mattered anyway! This would have surpassed any of them anyway! Such a beautifully written story with relateable and love able characters. This is a definite must read!

I enjoyed the characters in this book but by about the 60% mark it started to drag out a bit and the main female character was starting to become annoying. Up until this point I would have given this a five star rating and it's the only reason I dropped back to four stars.

I did actually purchase the book because it was 400 pages and it's nice to have a decent length book to read but it was a bit unnecessary in this case.

The secondary characters really added to the story. Lots of humor. Still worth reading.

In this New Adult Contemporary Romance, Jena Baker and Nicolas Cooper--two who had admired each other in college but were unable to link up due to a sudden separation--meet again on New Year's Eve seven years later. And the sex, though it's not described, is EPIC. Except for one thing: Nick was too drunk to remember who his Angel is.

Haunted by dreams of the escapade, he is stunned to learn Jena was his special someone. Meanwhile, Jena, stung by Nick's poor memory is hesitant to enter an actual relationship with the object of her college crush.

What follows is an unsteady game of Misunderstanding as both Jena and Nick realize they are supremely attracted to each other, while having very little knowledge of the other. Their tentative dating results in a passion-fueled couplehood--complete with jealous bar fights, empty liquor bottles, disapproving parents, scheming friends, and lots and lots of hurt feelings. Pretty much dead-on for a realistic relationship, IMHO.

Told in alternating first-person, this tale gives the reader a window to both Jena and Nick's insecurities and certainties--because when the dust settles they're definitely *almost* sure they really might belong...together.

What I really enjoyed about this novel: the passion between Jena and Nick, the love of their friends, and the steadfast belief that they didn't know what the heck they were getting into.

For all that this is a contemporary romance the heat is tepid. Lots of discussion about sex had or to-be-had but no graphic smexy bits to make your hands steam up the reader screen. And, that's okay too.
