Book Description

When love is threatened by truth, every moment counts…

Circle of Friends, Book 2

Steve Sommers is having a gut-wrenching week. His fiancée has left him, the woman who broke his heart is back in town—and they’re all gathered at the bedside of his best friend, who’s in a coma. The emotional ties between them are strained to the breaking point. Like it or not, it’s up to Steve to find the strength and compassion to support the four of them through the toughest ordeal of their lives.

In the midst of the turmoil and trauma, passion unexpectedly flares anew between Steve and the woman he loves. Suddenly the future he’d believed lost lies within his reach. But she still carries the secret that once tore them apart, and determined to protect Steve from the truth, she fights their rekindled relationship every step of the way.

Now the fragile bond they’ve developed hangs in the balance, threatened by a reality that love may not be strong enough to overcome…

Editorial Reviews


“I had originally read Tyler’s story and fell in love with Steve, wanting his story right then. After making me wait months, Jess Dee more than delivers with Steve’s Story. I can’t say too much without giving away the story, which simply must be read to appreciate. Heartbreaking while at the same time being heartwarming, Jess Dee shows that while not every happy ending is perfect, sometimes you take the hand life deals you and love with all your heart. I found myself in tears several times. Truly outstanding.”
~ Melissa, Joyfully Reviewed
“STEVE’S STORY is an emotional ride from beginning to end. The sexual tension between Steve and Pen is captivating. The CIRCLE OF FRIENDS stories have truly touched my heart and give me a newfound respect for life and those who choose to embrace everything life has to offer.”
~ Chrissy Dionne, Romance Junkies
“The dynamics of this couple proved that Dee knows how to grip the readers’ imaginations. There was a myriad of emotional highs and lows in this book. I shed enough tears to be glad I was reading in private. I laughed. I read some incredible sexual activity. The overall content of the story was breathtaking. I loved the story and I loved the outcome. I’ve found a new author to add to my automatic list.”
~ Brenda Talley, The Romance Studio

1.0 out of 5 stars This " Circle " Made Me Dizzy January 31, 2010
I really got sucked in by the book's blurb and wanted to find out about the 4 character's tragedys. It was a tragedy that I wasted time and $$ on this. I could not believe how Ms. Dee stretched out this book by saying the same thing over and over. I only got thru one third of the book and decided to immediately delete it from my Kindle. I didn't want it taking up space that I could use for something better. It was very hard for me to muster up sympathy for any of them - even Tyler. Pen is the ultimate whiner, Kate, being a doctor, surprised me by revealing the medical condition to someone even though they were friends. It was the ultimate breach of privacy in my opinion. As for Steve, I really don't know what to say about a man who would marry his best friend's ex-girl just to avoid being lonely, after his best friend's sister drops him like a hot potato, with no explanation only to re-appear after her brother's accident, to wonder why someone she treated like dirt doesn't want her anymore, and on top of that acting as if he were surprised that his new fiance dumps him 6 mos. before their wedding to go back to Tyler, knowing that he (Steve) and Kate didn't really love each other. Whew! I had to ge that out.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm a sucker for happy endings... March 19, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
and while Steve and Pen's story didn't have the typical perfect ending, I was pleased with how the story was wrapped up. It would be nice for Jess Dee to do a follow-up on all of the characters and show them 5, 10, even 15-20 years later and this time with details of Kate and Tyler's life AND Steve and Pen's life. I was very touched and brought to tears...which has never happened in the past while reading a book classified as "erotica."

2.0 out of 5 stars Too long & predictable! January 26, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading Tyler's story, I fell in love with Steve & couldn't wait to finish his story. I'm glad that I purchased it through the digital download instead of paying more money for the print version. I'm only a little over half way through with the book & am so sick of reading the same things over and over (I might go insane if I have to read Pen telling Steve to "Fire it Up" one more time!!). The book could have been half the length and gotten the complete story in with no problem. It seems as if Jess Dee extended the book quite a bit so she could fit all the sex scenes in (which aren't that great, either!).

The only reason I gave it two stars is because the book is unique in the fact that the story is more true to life than most. The problems that the main characters face can't be solved easily and, like life, their story doesn't have the makings of a perfect fairy tale ending, but they make do with the hand they have been dealt (pardon the cliche').

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve and Pen June 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thank you for at least getting Steve the happy ending he so deserved. I've never met a more stubborn character more than Penelope. Damn she was getting on my nerves for a bit. I loved Steve's persistence though. Good job on holding out on her true weakness. Good read.
