Blog Tour-Review and Giveaway: Wednesday by Clare James

Help us celebrate the release of Wednesday by Clare James! We hope you can join us!

Title: Wednesday
Author: Clare James
Age: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Scheduled to release: September 29, 2014



Her. Him. Alone. Beach house. Every Wednesday. Clothing optional.

Twenty-one-year-old Aria Prince has just moved back to her hometown to start over after a painful divorce. She’s always prided herself on being an early bloomer, but had no idea she’d be married, divorced, and the mother of a toddler by twenty-one. Surely menopause was just a few months away, especially considering the hot flashes and night sweats. Or was that just exhaustion? 

Unlike her friends who were at school, going to parties, and sowing their oats—wild and otherwise—Aria’s days were measured in the number of orders she took at her family’s restaurant, the chapters she read in her nursing text, the amount of Cheerios she cleaned up off the floor, and the wet kisses she received from her son.

And that was just fine with her.

But when she began running into her former best-friend Tristan Green—who was home taking care of his sick father—at every turn, she remembered what it felt like to be just Aria. Not a single mother, or sleep-deprived nursing student, or royal screw up. And though she didn’t even have time to shave her legs, let alone consider a sex life, Tristan makes an offer she’d be a fool to refuse.

Each day they’d give themselves to those who needed them. Every day – except Wednesday. Wednesday they’d take what they needed from each other.

Did she forget to mention Tristan was gorgeous?

Or that they hated each other?

Well, you know what they say about the line between love and hate … it’s a skinny-ass bitch. The question was, could they keep their feelings out of it?




This is the first time I've had the pleasure of reading one of Clare James' books...and I'll definitely be reading more by her.  Wednesday was a a nice, quick read that flowed smoothly and had a great cast of characters.  I'd have to say Tristan was my clear favorite, and I loved the scenes with him and Aria's son.  As far as Alex goes...even though we don't see too much of him, what we see makes me want to stick him at the bottom of the barrel for being such an ass.

While Aria and Tristan supposedly can't stand each other, it is plain to see that deep down they truly don't.  I just wanted them to toss aside their attitudes and just admit to themselves and everyone else what I as a reader could easily see.  I really liked getting both Aria and Tristan's POVs, dual POV books always give you so much more of the story.

My only wish for this story was to have more of a resolution of the situation with Alex.  Since things still felt a bit incomplete at the end, I'm hoping another book will be coming to tell more of Aria and Tristan's story and finish off things with Alex.

A good, solid romance read and a 4-star rating from me for Wednesday.
