"This was such a great book!
I adored the people in this one.
Alexis was an absolutely FABULOUS main character. Smart and strong - every time she came into the chapter, I was grinning like no tomorrow.
Aidan definitely felt a little too strong and smug in the beginning for my taste (just too aware of the "affect he has on women") but after a few chapters he grew on me.
I loved that they both dealt with "real" issues in this book - Alexis still felt the pain of being a widow and Aidan never fully recovered from his terrible childhood.
Watching them deal with their issues and grow from them really made this book feel real to me.
The cat-and-mouse game between Alexis and Aidan completely cinched the book for me. It was hilarious and brilliant and just so fun to read."
I was in a bit of a quandary with this book as I dislike books that start at point A, take the readers in a huge circle to end up back at point A with little of the original conflict as presented in the first chapter resolved. Not my thing at all, but I would be
unfair if I let that colour my appraisal as this is a well-written story with two very engaging lead characters.
Great story. Not a fan of too much romance and the scenes, but this book is an exception. ... Where's Part 2?!
I IMMEDIATELY tried to buy the sequel, but ALAS . . . So I bought The Amped Series Book One. Sped through it. I've found a new favorite author. This is the FIRST time I haven't said that there were some uncaught typos, some formatting issues. I WILL be recommending YOU to several people. Please, write ON!!
The chemistry between the two self-described nerds, Pam and Daryl, is strong, beginning with a happenstance first meeting. Fate continues for these two in the romantic novel, Flux: Pam & Oates Part One, written by M. J. Woods.
This story is a modern-day romance, including text messages, emails, and current slang. The geographic settings also add flavors of today’s world – the high-tech world of northern California, aspects of Canadian life and opportunities in large, East Coast cities.
The story flows smoothly as the chapters alternate between the voices of Pam and Daryl. Author M. J. Woods has crafted a well-written, new romantic series in Flux: Pam & Oates Part One. It will be interesting to see what happens to Pam and Daryl next!
4 out of 5 Stars!

MJ writes so well you feel like a peeper eavesdropping on the couple. She drops a couple of carefully placed curves, and a solid backstory in place. Her writing is stellar, the perfect description of the island and house that made me feel like I was there.

I'm so mad cuz it's over! I even waited a day before finishing the last chapter to prolong the ending. This book was soooo good! It has a great build up and puts you right there on the St. Lawrence River. The author paints an amazing picture you can see and feel.

"The electricity from Pam and Oates' first meeting to their last was sizzling. MJ Woods has her hand on the pulse of today with these characters."
- Jamie, Goodreads Reviewer
“Rates up in the Top Ten of my favorite romance novels."
"When I was reading this I was living it. I felt Alexis' pain, her delight, her hesitation and her joy."
"I only put it down because I needed to sleep."
"Being brutally honest - I loved it!"
"Can't wait for the next one."
"I love it so much. It's so f***ing good!"
"This is an awesome debut novel. It is well written, flows well and the characters are fully developed. All the supporting characters served a purpose and fit in with the story. Love the Tedeschi Trucks Band!!! The next installment can’t get here soon enough!"
“Balance was incredible. Such a unique story line with lots of twists and turns. It was a perfect balance (no pun intended) of suspense and steam."
"I finished it. I'm dying without Alexis and Aidan!"
"I am soooo bummed... that I am almost done! Dragging it out! Waiting for the next one!"
"I eat books for breakfast. Seriously, I have read sooooo many authors in this genre. This book is great!"
“MJ Woods has done it again! I am such an avid reader and this book has it all – unique characters, settings you can actually relate to, lives and struggles of real people. I’m so impressed that this is only the second book from this writer. She is well on her way to a big future. “In grande futuro in avanti!”
“Heat, steam…and more trouble in Sway. Amped is no ordinary romance series! Is this second installment still sexy? Hell, Yes! But it’s also a fine mystery and love story, which very few ‘romance’ novels can offer. Delectable and compelling at the same time!”
“I didn't think it was possible for this new author to get even better! She has made this story so real to me, I am in withdrawal!”
“Sway is smart, super sexy and a must read! Loved it - I couldn't put it down! Can't wait for the next release!!!”
"Hot! Great story line and character development and sexy, sexy, sexy! It is a page turning thriller and romance all wrapped into one! A must read!"
"Sway was FANTASTIC! It picked up right where Balance left off, just with more steam this time around."
“It isn’t often that the second book in a series delivers on its promises. Sway is one of the few second books in a series that delivers.”
"MJ Woods has totally left me wanting more. Best read all year! If you only have the time for one series this year, this is the one you don't want to miss..."
"So Much More Than 5 Stars! Perfect Ending to The Amped Series!"
"WOW!! Fall was everything that I had hoped it would be and more! It jumped right in where Sway left off and had me hooked from the first sentence. As I was reading I found myself unable to put the book down....476 pages in 4 days!! In the back of my mind however, I knew that it was going to end and I did not want it to."
"This is a fantastic series.....it is HOT, steamy, romantic, suspenseful, and keeps you begging for more. MJ Woods hit this out of the park."
"Fall is the third and and final book in the Amped series and I have to say, I’m sad to have finished the book because I didn’t want it to end! These three books are well written and are easy to get sucked into. I have plans to reread the series and hope the author decides to give us a book 4 by the time I’m done!"
"This book had you at the edge of your seat, as you never knew what was going to happen during this thriller. Only thing that would make this book better is if my family would have let me read it all at once! I cannot wait for MJ Woods to release another story. She is one captivating author!"
