Product Description

The-Quar-ter- Change:
/T͟Hē, ˈkwôrdər, CHānj/
A drastic personality change brought on by a person’s upcoming twenty-fifth birthday and the realization that they have been EXISTING for a quarter of a century but not LIVING.

Kimbella Tyler is done floating through life…

She’s turning twenty-five in a few weeks, and even though she’s in the prime of her life, living by the motto “Keep head down or in a book” hasn’t exactly been fun. Sick of hanging in the background of life, Kimbella embarks on a mission to leave her introverted ways in the past and live by a new motto—“Liquor. Lust. Living.”. The first step in her mission is to change her surroundings. Armed with her “Quarter List” full of fun local attractions and wild, adventurous things that she was always too introverted to do, Kimbella heads to California for two weeks of no holds barred fun.

An unlisted attraction…

Kimbella’s carefully laid plans are interrupted when she meets the crazy sexy Dr. Roman Tanzman and he attaches himself to her at the hip. Rolling with the punches for once in her life, Kimbella takes Roman along as she goes on the adventure of a lifetime—well the adventure of a quarter of a lifetime.

Liquor. Lust. Love…?

Kimbella's new life is one she’s always dreamed about; filled with hot nights with Roman, endless fancy dinners and dancing and no shortage of liquor. But with Kimbella pretending to be a bold, outgoing and sexually forward woman, and Roman pretending to be a carefree guy who isn’t going through the most trying time of his life, their facades have the potential to be their very undoing. Liquor and lust were part of the plan—love certainly wasn’t.

HASH(0x9cd7bfa8) out of 5 stars Romance good enough for the unromantic Jan. 16 2016
By Elizabeth Roderick - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'll start out by saying that I'm not generally a fan of straight romance. Like, at all. But this book kept me up way past my bedtime to finish it, even though the romance was definitely the meat and potatoes of the plot. The author did a very good job of evoking all those romance feels :) And it was fun just to be on Kimbella's journey as she figured out who she was and what she wanted out of life. It's a sweet, lovely book and very well-paced.

The only thing that bugged me was the fact that Kimbella and Roman kept running into each other in the most preposterous of Deus ex machina ways...that in itself didn't bug me, actually, because I love a huge dollop of fate in any tale, especially romance...but I wish the characters would have acknowledged more how they must have been fated to be together, since they kept finding one another, against all odds.

If this book could draw in a rather jaded b*tch like myself, who almost always needs the romance to be on equal footing or subservient to another plot, then romance lovers should feel confident this will be a book they'll absolutely love.

HASH(0x9d275570) out of 5 stars Huge FAN of this book! Dec 11 2015
By Haley A. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The Quarter Change was a fantastic immersion into the life of Kimbella Tyler, a 25 year old woman who wants nothing more than to reinvent her life. Being 24 years old myself, I can attest that the quarter life crisis is a real thing, and I enjoyed reading about all the adventures Kimbella has in this book. She starts out shy and unsure of herself, trying her best to break out of her shell and stop hiding from the world. Dr. Roman Tanzman comes along and makes that quest all the more important.

The relationship between Kimbella and Roman had me hooked all the way through. Kimbella's family was also a delight to read about. The characters feel real and they all have flaws and virtues of their own. The descriptions of the locations in the book were realistic as well, which made me feel like I was almost there myself. I recommend this book to adults of any age who enjoy romance, especially those who are approaching (or have already passed) The Quarter Change.

HASH(0x9ce75630) out of 5 stars Light-Hearted and Delightful! Dec 31 2015
By Kim C - Published on
Format: Paperback
When reserved, booklover Kimbella Tyler decides she wants to change her life just in time for her 25th birthday, she packs up and heads to California for two weeks with one mantra in mind: Lust, Liquor, and Living. But Kimbella's plans for fun without strings goes out the window when she meets Dr. Roman Tanzman, a sexy doctor who needs a distraction of his own.

But the more time they spend together, it becomes painfully obvious that Kimbella and Roman are more than a fling--and more than the facades they both display. Fun without strings--that was the idea. But love? Kimbella and Roman hadn't counted on that.

*I received a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

When I first read the synopsis of this book, I was immediately intrigued. I remember well the feeling of panic I felt when I turned 25, and Kimbella and I seemed to have so much in common. From the first few pages, I really connected with Kimbella and loved the spunk she kept underneath her reserved nature. From her inability to use curse words to her love of books, I felt like we were kindred spirits.

As the story progressed, I got majorly sucked in and could not put the book down! I ADORED Roman and nearly swooned myself every single time he came on to the page. Taylor does an excellent job with dialogue and descriptions and I truly felt like I was there living every moment right along with Kimbella--which certainly got interesting during the sexy scenes! ;) This book made me laugh AND cry. Just like Kimbella, my emotions were certainly put through the gamut with this book and I love when books take you on a journey like that! With such a colorful cast of characters, the strong voice of Kimbella, and the beautiful backdrop of sunny California, this book was an absolute delight to read! I read it very quickly and was so sad when it ended! And be prepared, you will need tissues at the end!

I thoroughly enjoyed The Quarter Change and will definitely look for more books by Taylor in the future! I definitely recommend this one! :)

HASH(0x9cd7c264) out of 5 stars Unique, eye-catching, & beautiful... Dec 11 2015
By M - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The Quarter Change.
Unique, eye-catching, and beautiful. From the vivid, colorful, and amazing cover to the very last word, I couldn’t stop reading.

I teared up at the beginning of the book, sympathizing with Kimbella’s experience as a child—especially because my daughter was going through a rough patch with some children from school. I also laughed-out-loud, screamed, squealed, and completely fell in love with the characters.

“Vengeance? No. Actually, I think I’d just like to have sex with you.” –Kimbella to Roman

Roman took Kimbella’s challenge and ran with it. Roman is sweet, sexy, HOT, and like Kimbella, has issues he has to resolve. But what’s a little romance without some conflict?

The Quarter Change is a wonderfully written debut romantic novel by Kiarra M. Taylor about one woman’s journey to change the life she has lived to follow her dreams and finally LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST. This is one book you don’t want to miss! ♥

HASH(0x9cabb57c) out of 5 stars I really enjoyed the story line Dec 25 2015
By Jenr - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed the story line. It was honest. We can't control how we feel and the way we react to situations. In love there is a lot of blind walking meaning neither person knows where to go. That's what you get with the read. It's two people feeling each other out while diving in at the same time. It's sexy and funny and you'll love the banter between each the two main characters.
