5.0 out of 5 stars BEST "chick lit" read of the year! March 22 2007
By Deltareviewer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Got men problems? Join the club of women who have had their hearts broken. Regardless of how strong we think we are, no one is ever ready to find out that their man is cheating on them. After suffering through a year long separation, Fiona Daniels finally got her signed divorce papers.

With feelings of joy, she recruited her best friend, Nicole, to help her plan a "DFL - divorcee for life" party. Fiona spared no expense and invited 27 of our closet friends to celebrate with champagne, catered buffet, and private room. She shed her dressed to impress attorney façade for the evening and partied like there was no tomorrow. During the clean up phase of this soirée, she noticed the handsome cater. Drunken Fiona threw caution to the wind and invited him home for a one-night stand. Fiona acknowledged that the sex was hot and Nicholas "Nick" Nathaniel was FINE (frog hair split three ways fine) but in no way was she becoming involved in a serious relationship.

Nick is a divorcee, master chef and restaurant owner with two kids. He is a free spirit with a passion for expensive gifts and good food. Fiona captivated him while her mean spirit and her funky attitude made him even hungrier in the chase to win her heart. The friendship between the two gets complicated when Fiona realizes who her sisters new man is - waking up the ghetto side of this otherwise refined sister. She temporally loses touch with reality which may cause her to lose everything - her position at the firm, the love of her mother, and her new man friend - Nick.

THE NICK OF TIME is a story that rings true for so many sisters today. Culberson draws the reader in with humorous dialogue, theatrical twists, and the understanding that sex always has strings. Unquestionably, the BEST "chick lit" read of the year. Don't sleep on San Culberson because her pen flows with page turning action that will carry you through the full gamut of emotions.


Reviewing for Real Page Turners
5.0 out of 5 stars Hilariously funny and Full of Drama Nov. 25 2008
By D. Lee - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
You know you're reading a good book, when you find yourself laughing out loud. This book truly is a page turner and at first I was a little concerned whether I would like it, because the character is speaking in first person, but I thought it was great.

Fiona is a spunky attorney, who is a chip of the old block whether she wants to believe it or not. She throws a DFL party to celebrate her long awaited divorce and she claims she is finish with love. You soon find out that you have to be careful about what you say. No sooner does she make her vow to remain single for the rest of her, than in walks Nick. We soon discover that Fiona's strong facade is a protective shield against being hurt. Nick is what she needs in her life to help her learn that its okay to trust and depend on someone else. She seriously puts their relationship to the test, but in the end Nick proves anything worth having is worth fight for.
Ramona (Fiona's sister) is a real character. I would really have liked to have been able to find out more about her. I think she was always jealous of Fiona, which is why she didn't feel bad about her decision. I would have loved finding out whether she got what she really deserved. I probably would have eventually forgiven her too, but I still would have wanted to kick her behind big time. It's just the principal. I think there's something deeper going on there and it would be interesting to see her story. Rita Mae(Fiona's mother) was hilarious I loved her character. Being a mother myself I think I probably would have reacted the way she did. Ultimately, I think the story was about facing betrayal and disappointments, while learning to forgive so you can live your own life fully, which ain't easy. San Culberson did an excellent job of putting a funny spin to a difficult topic. Great story!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Simply Wonderful!!! Feb. 7 2007
By Urban Reviews - Published on
Format: Paperback
Newly divorced attorney Fiona Daniels married "Mr. Wrong," but now she's ready to move on with her life. She begins the healing process by throwing a divorce party to celebrate her new life as a divorced woman for life. Fiona swears to her best friends at the party that she will never love again and will settle for just meaningless sexual relationships. Fiona is going to have a difficult time keeping that promise when she meets Nicholas "Nick" Nathaniel. Nick is so deliciously irresistible that Fiona can't stop herself from getting just a little taste of him. When their one night stand extends to a couple of nights, Nick's feelings for Fiona get deeper than just sex. But Fiona keeps telling herself that it's just a no-strings relationship, and she has no time for love or the heartbreak that may come with it. Will Fiona open her heart to love or will she just let Nick walk away?

The Nick of Time is a superbly entertaining novel by San Culberson. Culberson brought an interesting twist to the story of a newly divorced woman. From the very first page, readers will know that this is not your typical "man meets woman" type novel. You'll see the transformation of Fiona as a woman who won't let the possibility of love enter her mind become a woman who may be willing to give love a try. There's a good blend of drama, sensuality, and amusing dialogue that makes this a delightful read. The Nick of Time is witty and uproariously humorous. Hopefully, we will have the pleasure of reading more from San Culberson in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK IS A DEFINITE MUST-HAVE!!!! Feb. 18 2007
By Tonya A. Phillips - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was browsing at B & N & just the cover to this book caught my eye. I read the back & thought it would be an interesting read. At first, between work & running errands, I wasn't really able to read the book much but I was intrigued by what I had read so far. Anyhow, the following Saturday night, I forgot at exactly what time I started reading (I think I started around 7 or 8) & didn't stop reading until 1 AM!! I was so enthralled by the book that I almost couldn't stop reading. I say almost because, not to give the book away but, at one part of the book when Fiona was betrayed by her sister & then she felt she was betrayed by Nick, I literally started shaking, my heart started beating so fast & I started crying so hard that I had to stop reading 'cause I couldn't read anything, my vision was so blurry!! After about a good five minutes I composed myself & was able to continue. Afterward, I immediately wrote a review at [...] & I'll put the same response. I don't care if anyone thinks I'm pathetic & I don't have a life 'cause I get so involved when I'm reading a book but I DON'T CARE 'CAUSE I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE BOOK!!!! Anyone who loves urban romance or romance of any kind for that matter should get this book. I took a chance on this book & was pleasantly rewarded. This book gives hope to skeptics like myself in hopes of finding true love & accepting that everyone is different & that with time, a broken heart can be mended. AGAIN, THIS BOOK IS A DEFINITE MUST-HAVE, NOT A DISAPPOINTMENT!!
