Peek Inside If Only

It's been two years since twenty-year-old Jordan had a boyfriend. Now she’s off to spend her junior year in Aberdeen, Scotland, the perfect place to stop waiting for Mr. Right and just enjoy Mr. Right Now. Noah's perfect. After being trapped together outside the train’s loo, he kisses her like she’s never been kissed before. But Aberdeen is supposed to be about fun rather than waiting for life to happen, and Noah makes Jordan reconsider what love is and how far she’s willing to go for the right guy.

Sometimes it takes crossing an ocean to figure out where you belong.

It’s been two years since twenty-year-old Jordan had a boyfriend—which means it’s been forever since she, well, you know. But now she’s off to spend her junior year in Aberdeen, Scotland, the perfect place to stop waiting for Mr. Right and just enjoy Mr. Right Now.

Sexy, sweet (and possible player) Griffin may be her perfect, no-strings-attached match. He’s fun, gorgeous, and makes her laugh. So why can’t she stop thinking about Noah who, minutes after being trapped together outside the train’s loo, kisses Jordan like she’s never been kissed before? Never mind his impossible blue eyes, his weathered, annotated copy of The Great Gatsby (total English-major porn)…oh, and his girlfriend.

Jordan knows everything this year has an expiration date. Aberdeen is supposed to be about fun rather than waiting for life to happen. But E. M. Forster, Shakespeare, and mistletoe on Valentine’s Day make her reconsider what love is and how far she’s willing to go for the right guy.

Review

"IF ONLY is a book that left me confused. Not because of the plot or characters, but why, oh, why isn't more New Adult written in this vein?? Pine clearly loves the English language and takes care to craft her words with love and heart. I designate this book as: HUG TO YOUR CHEST, SIGH, AND RUSH OFF TO READ E.M FORESTER GOOD." --Lia Riley, author of UPSIDE DOWN (ForeverRomance/Grand Central)
 
"This book hit me with all the feels. A.J. has a way of writing that is so relatable. You feel everything the characters do, as if you are right there with them, which is good because you'll want to be in Scotland with Jordan and Noah and Griffin and hilarious Elaina. It's a wonderful example of a New Adult, coming-of-age story and that's got a whole lot of heart." --Megan Erickson, author of MAKE IT COUNT (William Morrow/Harper Collins)
 
"LOVED, LOVED, LOVED. Add IF ONLY to your TBR list if you haven't already."--Lex Martin, author of DEAREST CLEMENTINE.

A Scottish setting with hot guys thrown in the mix? Count me in! I loved the characters in If Only, even the side characters--Elaina & Duncan were so much fun! There were lots of swoony moments & I was having a hard time deciding which guy I liked more. But it wasn't long before I picked... ...more

I just absolutely loved this book!!!

Full review to come!


This was my first book that I've read by AJ Pine and it won't be the last. I love her writing style, and the way she can write out these amazing characters.

We meet Jordan while she's on a train traveling to Aberdeen University. While on the... ...more

If only I had not cried during half of this!

If only I had not fallen for BOTH guys in this book! ACK

I'll tell you now… IF ONLY will charm the pants off you. Seriously, I wish I could jump into Jordan's shoes and take that trip to Aberdeen.

That's where this journey starts. An American student heads off to a study abroad program in Scotland. Sounds dreamy, right? Then add two hot American guys,... ...more

Once I started reading it, I could not stop. I loved the characters, I loved the writing, and I love that it makes me want to read some classic novels that I missed out on when I was younger.

I am amazed that this is A.J. Pine's first novel; her writing is exquisite. I hope there is a second, and... ...more

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I really really really enjoyed this book. I was surprised that this was a debut novel. I honestly didn't expect much, but I was totally drawn into this story from the beginning. The writing was great and I love... ...more

In AJ Pine’s smart, wonderfully written novel, If Only, college student Jordan Brooks heads for a year abroad to Scottland, where she plans to reinvent herself, thanks to loving advice from her best friend Sam, the only one in the world who calls her Brooks.

Throughout the story, I loved Jordan B... ...more

By Gary March 24, 2014

Although romance isn’t exactly my default reading genre, a guy needs to stretch, right? If they’re all as good as A. J. Pine’s If Only, I might dabble in this again. Everything I want in a story is here: likeable characters, humor, a dash of the exotic, and a narration that drives through to a sa... ...more

By Natalie March 24, 2014

This is one of my favorite New Adult book. Smart, sweet and just saucy enough, I want to keep reading it over and over again.

Can't wait for more AJ Pine books. And can the next one have more Jordan? And Noah? And Griffin?

And more quotes from my favorite books? And more re-enactments of my favori... ...more

I started If Only one morning before I got out of bed. On a school day for my girls might I add. Now, if I had known what I was getting into when I dove into these pages, I probably would’ve NOT started it then. Why, you ask? Because due... ...more

Loved this book from the first page to the last. I loved Noah and Jordan's story. I loved fighting for them! I want more of them and Griffin. The book brought back my own memories of studying abroad and my own personal journey while I was there. The book also made me want to see Scotland. I felt... ...more

By Rachel April 25, 2014

Weeks later, and I can't stop thinking about this book. It more than deserves its place on my top ten of 2014...yes, I realize the year isn't even half over. It was just that good. A heroine I could relate with, romance that made me swoon, and real character growth. A.J. Pine has a fan girl in me... ...more

By Maria Rose November 20, 2015

A.J. Pine may be a newcomer to the world of new adult novels but she is definitely not an amateur as this wonderful emotional love story shows.

By Joy March 24, 2014

I haven't read a romance in... oh, my. It's been too long. Maybe that's why I fell for Noah on the first page I met him. I was angered many times, however, at how 20-year-olds act... Why so foolish? Why not just TALK about it?! But I got over it, as I know there has to be conflict in order for th... ...more

By Megan August 09, 2016

This book was a much needed breath of fresh air in a new adult world filled with over the top story lines. I thought that the characters were well developed and likable even when I wanted to shake some sense into one of them in particular. This is a great story about a girl trying to lose herself... ...more

By Jaclyn May 09, 2014

Glory to L. Ron, I loved this book! And that joke. Which I'm gonna steal and incorporate into my own vocabulary.

Jordan is smart, sensitive, funny, and vulnerable. Griffin and Noah both bring out something different in her, and I found myself conflicted along the way as to who I was rooting for.... ...more

About the author

A.J. Pine

AJ Pine writes stories to break readers’ hearts, but don’t worry—she’ll mend them with a happily ever after. As an English teacher and a librarian, AJ has always surrounded herself with books. All her favorites have one big commonality–romance. Naturally, the books she writes have the same. When she’s not writing, she’s of course reading. Then there’s online shopping (everything from groceries to shoes). And a tiny bit of TV where she nourishes her undying love of vampires, superheroes, and a certain high-functioning sociopath detective. You’ll also find her hanging with her family in the Chicago ‘burbs.
