Dylan doesn’t do relationships. He and his older brother watched their dad go through hell and back, so they made a pact years ago—no girl would come between the Gibson boys. But his brother sells out. He's getting married anyway. To the sister of a chick Dylan met at a party, who's probably the angriest girl he's ever met. Unfortunately, she happens to be hot, too.
Ziah’s life is upside down—her safe boyfriend turns out to be not-so-safe, and now her sister is getting married before college is over to the older brother of a spoiled, party boy who drives her crazy. And also makes her heart beat too fast.
There’s no denying the attraction, but there's also no denying how much they irritate each other. When they’re thrown together as forced wedding planners, they find an ally in each other--neither wants this wedding to happen.
But instead of putting a stop to the crazy nuptials they find themselves at fittings and cake testing. And maybe even…a few dates? Dizzy is a novel about what happens when two people who are determined not to fall in love, maybe do anyway. Maybe.{Goodreads}

  Firsts....Jolene and Nyrae are two of my most favoritist indie authors of ALL time!!! I first fell in love with Nyrae when I fell in love with Sebastian! O. My. Word!! Dudes, she is a PRO when it comes to dreamy boys. I LOVE Sebastian and (What a Boy Wants) was absolutely amazing! I got giggly and goosebumpy and laughed my tooshy off!!! Pure. Genius!! And then I fell in love with Jolene when I read the story of Luke and Ronnie. It totally changed me and my thoughts. It (Knee Deep) was cute romantic and humorous and completely inspirational! If there are two Indie authors I will repeatedly recommend it would be these two! They are so talented and need more recognition!! I am so behind with their books because they keep popping them out like there is no tomorrow!! I mean seriously you guys...slow down!! I can't keep up these days!! It seems everyday there is a new one coming!! ;D (no, please don't ever stop writing!!) I need to read them all...so should you! ;)

  Anyways!! Enough with their previous books. This is  a review of Dizzy not the other two. Ok well..let me rant a bit more about these two lovely authors. Nyrae and her perfect boys + Jolene and her awesome, witty female leads= the perfect combo! This book was so good! I loved the play of back and forth with Ziah and Dylan's POV. Dylan was so charismatic and a complete hot head..an adorable, fun, funny, in-denial boy!! O gosh..I loved him. He was fun and witty. He was loving and confused. Ziah was a pain in the ahh...tushy. She was mean and mad and so freaking difficult! She was also loving and funny without knowing it. She had this charm that I just came to love. I love reading through alternating POV but the best is when the characters are so distinguishable but still the same where you don't feel like you are reading completely different books. Ziah and Dylan were one of the same. I loved how Ziah would end her turn thinking one thing and Dylan would pick up thinking the exact same thing. They were on the same page...they were the cutest couple ever.

  Jolene and Nyrae's writing was just as amazing even though they were sharing the pages. I enjoyed getting to know each character and reading from their talented hands. It was a true gift. They created one of the best couples in the contemporary genre. I had no problems...well one. Their relationship status. So they kind of hated each other at first. They believed they were on completely different sides of the world but they were closer than they thought...and once they figured it out it was nothing but sparks. Gosh these two were so cute! They were funny, witty (my!! their banter was awesome!!), close, smexy (uhmm..there were some pretty steamy, blood pumping scenes I was very fond of reading). They tried to deny their attraction but they just...couldn't. They only tried to keep their distance because they had things of their pasts and recent situations which screwed them over to thinking love was impossible. I felt bad but they helped each other out. They worked..they just worked.

  Wait...I thought you said you had a problem with their relationship status?....you may have just thought that question. Yes, you are right...I am getting there. Alas, my problem which semi-ruined my complete heart gushing over their little romance....Their siblings were getting married. That kinda makes them siblings...half...step siblings. Not by blood but by marriage. I just don't know I found it weird. They are siblings after the "I do". What?? Some people may not have a big deal with this...I didn't mind it too much it just kinda rubbed me the wrong way I'm afraid. I would have liked it if something was different but it kinda had to be to make their situation possible and the dislike they had with the wedding. Still...a little awkward for me but it didn't effect the rating so no worries!!

  So besides the sibling relation....Dizzy had its own charisma. It was all sorts of fun and excitement! Nyrae and Jolene truly have a gift and make one hell of a power duo! More please? I enjoyed this book so! I was so excited when Jolene asked me if I wanted a review copy!! I really love these two authors and I can't wait to read more from them..together or standing alone! I totally recommend this book to everyone who loves those romantic comedies with a dash of self-discovery! I kinda really like the cover too..its quirky and cute! I loved the humor, the writing, the love, the drama, the..a lot of the book let's just say ;) Seriously! Once you have the chance check this book out a long with their other books! I can promise you their books will fill ya up on any sappy yet funny romance cravings you have! They have yet to disappoint me!

4 of 5 girly stars!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
Have a good day!! :)


  1. Nyrae's one of my favorite indie authors as well, and her books are nothing but amazing!

    Ahhhh I agree - the stepsiblings issue might be something that some readers won't enjoy, but I'm still more than willing to give Dizzy a shot.

    Great review!

    1. Right!? I have only read What a Boy Wants and What a Boy Needs but that was enough to get me hooked! I have to catch up on her other ones soon! :)

      Right?? It was still amazing and well worth the read. Yes, I totally recommend you give it a shot! It just rubbed me the wrong way..but that was my only problem!

      Thanks! Hope you had a great day! :)
