    Rebecca McNutt

    A funny and fast-paced mystery novel with a nun as the unlikely heroine, A Nun Walks into a Bar dissolves the common misconceptions about nuns in pop culture, but also brings some lighthearted romance and thriller content into the mix.

    DNF at 58% The story is getting ridiculous for sometime now but I thought it will return to be like the first 25% which I like, well it wasn't. I couldn't read a story like this. The author wrote about human trafficking story but she write it lightly, is look like not a big problem, which is really? Especially when one of the victims is the hero's sister, she had been raped for months and I didn't see she getting any help to face that awful time!

Weeks ago she still lived as a nun in the abbey since she was 8 years old! Others will probably love this one, unfortunately I'm not one of them.

    The title... I was smiling and intrigued from the first time I spotted the title. And *snort* its the NUN-rated edition. I'm already familiar with the author's earlier Dogs of Fire MC series so I was curious about this spin-off story going on in the Dogs of Fire world.

New readers can easily pick this one up without having read the older ongoing series without trouble since this pulls in new lead characters and a parallel story line. I found this a light story with some heartwarming and thoughtful elements. The romance is the focus, but the suspense is a solid element to keep things interesting too. A woman who grew up with nuns and wanted to be a nun, but really wasn't cut out for that vocation and a guy raised in a dark, gritty world come together. It was an intriguing situation. Sadie was a mystery to me much of the time, I'll admit. I had no idea why she got bent out of shape half the time's she did or at least to the extent she did. She's naive and vulnerable, but she's also defensive and snarky. She needs a bit of help transitioning out into the world but sometimes she gets a chip on her shoulder and takes it wrong. She wants to be thought to have arrived before her train is barely leaving the station if that makes sense. Ryder, now he wasn't a mystery. He's a steamroller once he gets going. He's alpha to the core and has the need to be in control and keep those he cares about safe- bubble wrap probably isn't out of the question. But, this need makes sense when his past and his sister's issues come into play. Sadie was a good fit for him and kept him on his toes just like he had the patience and understanding not to see her as an oddball, but a person who just needs some time. The suspense part seemed to be leading in one direction with Ryder's missing sister, but then it became something huge and much more. Sadie finds out just how dark Ryder's world was and has to figure out if she'll stand with him or sit this one out. I had a good time with this side story in the Dogs of Fire universe. I think lovers of that series as well as those who enjoy romantic suspense with a stronger dose of spicy romance should definitely snag this up.

    This was a fun read, about a young former nun's adjustment to 'regular' life, with a romantic interest quickly coming into the picture. The strange/strained interactions between the H/h - mainly due to miscues from the heroine Sadie, with her observations and snark, and the hero Ryder's overprotectiveness - made for some entertaining reading.

The original version is pretty squeaky clean).

And all I had to do was write an honest review—oh yeah!!! sign me up. I might have let out a squeal when I opened the ebook. The squealing didn’t stop at page one. I laughed. I giggled. I rolled on the floor laughing. The title, A Nun Walks Into a Bar, hinted at the story being funny, but it was downright hilarious. I highlighted so many funny passages, one liners, and phrases that I had to start color coding. This book could do no wrong. What makes the story so funny is Sadie. The things that come out of her mouth. Sadie is the nun that ends up in a bar after getting off at the wrong MAX stop (Portland, Oregon’s light rail system) and her phone goes dead—Murphy’s law at its finest. Sadie isn’t your typical nun. She is a nun because that is what she knows. She has been living in a convent since the age of eight. Her parents died leaving her great aunt, who happens to be the mother superior, as her guardian. Talk about sheltered!!! Yet she still goes to dinner with a childhood friend. She avoids confession because it isn’t anonymous. She is a big Die Hard fan. She walks into the bar and her heart goes all a flutter for Ryder, the gorgeous man behind the bar. She isn’t the only one that feels it. Ryder knows there is something there but can’t act on it. Alpha male Ryder makes sure she is safely delivered home after putting his number in her now charged phone. Fast forward four months, Sadie is no longer a nun. The Reverend mother knew Sadie was meant to be something other than a nun. When she accidently calls Ryder the game is on. Ryder knows that fate has brought them back together and he isn’t going to mess it up. I wonder if Ryder realized what he was getting into????? Sadie’s mouth has no filter. If she thinks it; she says it. She is clueless about the real world. I didn’t know if I should laugh or cry. I compromised and laughed so hard I cried. She has absolutely no experience with or knowledge of the opposite sex. She refuses to have sex before marriage. Ryder has the patience of a saint. He grew up in a 1% Motorcycle club but left before he turned 18. He is 29 years old. He owns six bars. He has women throwing themselves at him on a daily basis. And yet, he not only accepts Sadie’s terms but they are monogamous. I wonder if all of Ryder’s cold showers caused the drought? All of this sweet, lovey dovey romance goes on while Ryder is trying to find his sister, a victim of human trafficking. You not only have the laughs, but you have suspense and horrible situations. Situations so horrible that you will be grateful for the laughs. So now the only question is how to rate A Nun Walks into a Bar. How many stars does a book get that sucks you in and refuses to let go until the end? How many stars does a book get that makes you laugh so hard that you wish you hadn’t had that last cup of tea? How many starts does a book get that you know could be the next Sleepless in Seattle or You’ve Got Mail?

    3.5 Stars rounded up. I enjoyed this story for the most part. The themes of sex trafficking gave it a serious side, but the author did a good job of incorporating that while keeping romance and humor in the book. The only thing I didn't enjoy was that it jumps from the middle of the climax into an epilogue. It's very jarring. I liked the characters.

    Romance Between The Sheets

    I just want to say this was a simply fantastic story, the title has you scratching your head but within the first few chapters I knew I was in for an amazing romantic journey. Ryder - well what an alpha man, he knew what he wanted and went for it - he is protective and such a gentleman - surprising considering his upbringing and what stamina he has to stand by Sadie and her inner beliefs. Sadie steals the show, is stunning, stubborn and simply sensuous when released into the real world.

Sadie steals the show, is stunning, stubborn and simply sensuous when released into the real world. We are given laughs, love and friendship, shown the strength of human compassion and I adored Sadie's aunt - what a way to grow up and be given such guidance for living her life. Sadie as a character connects to the reader from the first chapter, the way the story wove into her own coming of age and finding her place in the world was simply brilliant. This is my third book by this author and I was not disappointed and this is actually my favourite so far, we are given a great suspense story that entwines the the romance journey that these two main characters are taken on. I could pick this up again and start reading, it will be going into my "to be read" again list as it just made me feel so happy. A Nun Walks into a Bar

If you like suspense and mysteries, then this is the perfect book for you! Note: The book DOES delve into the world of human trafficking, so it may contain triggers for some readers. The characters were well developed and mostly likable. Ryder is a successful businessman who owns several bars. Sadie (aka Sister Abigail Eunice) is a teacher and former nun in training. Fate throws them together twice within a short period of time, and there is an instant attraction. (References to "The Sound of Music" at this point made me laugh.) However, Ryder has bigger concerns than an attraction to a nun: his real sister is missing, allegedly sold to human traffickers. Will Ryder be able to save his sister? And is there a place for Sadie in their lives? This is my first book by Tracey Jane Jackson, and I was impressed and pleased that I took a gamble on a catchy title that made me laugh. The plot was fast paced and attention grabbing. I was unable to put it down and read it straight through! I will be looking up more books by this author.

    It started really good, was disappointing after the first few chapters. The story had no depth, the chemistry between the characters lacked almost completely and the insta-love was totally rushed. Just OK.

    I have to start by saying in my defense, I thought this book was going to be funnier than this. Scratch that, I thought it was going to be funny. Period. But I kept reading and I honestly don't know why I kept reading. I guess I was hoping that Sadie would get a brain in her head. She was so stupidly naive about everything. It's like she decided to fall in love with the first guy to give her any type of attention. Ryder was absolutely horrible!

It's like she decided to fall in love with the first guy to give her any type of attention. Ryder was absolutely horrible! I kind of wanted to make a drinking game out of every time he called her "Baby". But then I was afraid if I did that, I'd die. The editing was atrocious. At one point the author switched points of view in the middle of the sentence, switching between "I" and "he". But I trudged through and kept reading, and all I can say is that I firmly remained #teampriest and was disappointed with everything. Save yourself the time, don't pick up this book (at least I can say that this was a free book and I didn't waste any money on it)

    Pretty sure I bought this for the punny title - the chronic overuse of the words 'babe', 'baby' and 'love' started to grate as did the male main characters constant need to be in control of everything (a rough childhood does not mean it's okay to have a girl followed when she's out with friends - just to see if she's "ok")

    Not sure what to think about this book. It was somehow unsatifying but maybe if I were young I would feel differently. It definitely dealt with some different stuff...the very wrong side of society contrasted with the religious, for example. But the romance felt off and the criminal stuff either forced or too realistic. Not sure if I'd bother with another from the series tho I read the teaser.

    While it started out somewhat promising, it fairly quickly devolved into circular repetition. Implausibly, Sadie and Ryder- the conventional opposites- attract so immediately that they are emotionally intertwined immediately- and this does not change.

When she gets involved with Ryder, she gets hooked into his world willy-nilly- and she does her best to fight the reasonable protections Ryder tries to impose to save her from actual, realistic danger. I also got overdosed on the endless lovey-dovey stuff. A mutual admiration society is no substitute for a couple having serious differences and working them out. And- if you are triggered by gratuitous rape- avoid this book. Ryder's sister is kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery, and while it's mentioned as Really Grave, it's mostly included as a way to show the Bad Guys are REALLY BAD!!! This is the worst possible way to refer to serious trauma, since it minimizes it and the trauma of it; it's a cheap, easy trick that displays a lack of compassion to survivors.

I could always go into more detail on reviews, but then I feel like I'm giving away tidbits of the story, like I ached when Sadie did and I was like "oh no Ryder, don't you do it!" but then he didn't...so it's all good ;) Yes, I talk to the book characters, laugh with them, cry with them, wince with them. it was so good I fan-girl squealed when I was able to read it, and am still squealing on the inside thinking about it! I love this book and ALL of Tracey Jane Jackson's books, they are marvelous! and I can't wait for Dial L for Murder!!! the sneak peak teaser at the end was awesome!

    I got a copy of A Nun Walks Into A Bar from the author in exchange for an honest review! I absolutely loved it! Its not your typical story between Sadie and Ryder!! I love how Ryder is with Sadie with her being an ex-nun and never living outside the convent. But Sadie's learning curve is great and shes a quick study!! I think Tracey Jane Jackson is a freaking genuis and she is truly amazing!! Another job well done!!

    Tracey did an amazing job with this story! A Nun Walks Into A Bar is sweet and funny and sexy as hell! Sadie was an endearing character that I connected with right away. Ryder was the perfect blend of big jerk and supportive alpha. I loved him. There are no slow moments and I loved watching Sadie and Ryder's relationship grow throughout it. One of my top favourite reads of this year.

    I received a copy from InstaFreebie (now called Prolific Works); this is my honest review. -Corny with suspenseful bits, and a few funny ones too. Sadie's POV was all 1st person; Ryder's was 3rd person. -I don't think the author researched much about kidnapped girls for harems, sex and drugs. It was not done well, like a mosquito in your soup. This is a tragic subject and should have been treated as such. -I didn't care for Sadie much - she was self-centered and didn't mind breaking someone's heart I received a copy from InstaFreebie (now called Prolific Works); this is my honest review. -Corny with suspenseful bits, and a few funny ones too.

He was strong, protective, and knew what he wanted. But he didn't need to be stepped over every time he tried to protect or save Sadie. She's a nun; he comes from a gang; he knows about life. -One thing what was wrongly appointed to a nun: she didn't know anything about romance. Even a 10 years old knows about romance or can be romantic. -Redundant: baby, babe, honey about every 5 seconds in their dialogues. It got old and annoying. -Editing: can't let him know I love him. Hum, you already told him that chapters ago and many times in between. -All in all, the book didn't impress me and didn't really get curious enough to read the next book after that, which is Reese's story and someone we don't even know about. I would not recommend.

I can't wait to read Reese's story (Book 2), but would LOVE, love, LOVE to read a story on Ollie and Scarlett! A definite must read for those who enjoy a sweet, funny and charming romance with a bit of suspense and mystery thrown in.

    I'll admit that I wasn't quite sure what to make of the title of this book, but I bought it because I just love Tracery Jane Jackson. It did not disappoint! It was really interesting to read about Sadie transitioning from a nun (the only life she has ever known but one she did not quite fit into) to the regular world. She is definitely a different kind of heroine -- smart, funny, naive, but not afraid to stand up for herself. She and Ryder definitely fit each other well.

I loved Ryder's protectiveness, although he clearly goes a bit over the top at times. The secondary characters were also great, and I really liked Ryder's crew. Scottie was also hilarious, and she was a nice complement to the other characters. There was just enough suspense in this book to keep things interesting, but it did not overpower the romance. The ending tied things up well (maybe a little too well), but I am such a sucker for happy endings that I can't complaint! Another winner by Ms. Jackson!

Sadie was okay but she did annoy me on many occasions. The book does cover some pretty heavy situations, I would recommend it.

Otherwise this was a quirky, slightly odd but interesting read with some difficult subject matter.

    Okay - total guilty pleasure reading. Thought this would be more of a mystery kind of novel - and it was, kind of, but more of a straight up romance novel (total, big strong man to the rescue stuff). The characters are not deep, not a lot of surprises, but the story itself is fun, and sometimes, you just want to put your brain on hold and enjoy some light reading. Not for kids - major sex scenes, language, some violence. more of an action story than mystery; and the action does keep going. This Okay - total guilty pleasure reading.

    Cute story - I loved the interaction between Sadie and Ryder, who are polar opposites. I must admit, however, the constant “baby” and “baby girl” talk put me on edge after a while. The MC and human trafficking storylines caught me completely off guard, but in a good way. One thing really distracted from the story, however, and that was during Ryder’s portions of the story where the tense would change mid-sentence.

For example, “I ran a hand through his hair.” This is Ryder talking, and I’m pretty sure he wasn’t running his hands through any guy’s hair.

    An excellent sizzling update. *I was given this edition free as I'd read the original written by Tracey Jane Jackson and left a review* I love all of Tracey's books. They hint at the passion running between the couples that get together, leaving the rest up to your imagination. You don't need your imagination with this edition of A Nun. . . The passion between Sadie and Ryder explodes in print and I think it makes for a better story; seeing the chemistry in action, so to speak.

    It was a fun read… something different that is for sure. Most of story is narrated in the first person by the lead characters Sadie and Ryder... there were some edits that got missed.. dealing with the use of correct pronouns when referring to oneself in the first person. As I was not particularly interested in the sex scenes… I just skimmed past those scenes. note: my kindle e-reader copy has Piper Davenport as the author.. but everything else seems to fit cover is the same (except for author na It was a fun read… something different that is for sure.

    Funny I give three stars because parts of this was pretty funny. I also really liked Reece. He was not a main character, but I still liked him. I didn't rate higher because as the story progressed it started to become cheesy. The story line was very solid, but the heroine was annoying at times and the hero was this weird mix of mushy creepiness. I won't spoil the read because it really was decent just a bit too syrupy sweet for my taste.

    3.5 total. 4.0 for the first 75% of the book. I've got this author's flavor now, and I'm seeing the trend. Nothing wrong with a sweet hero but he's (b/c they're all alike) beginning to bug me with the milquetoast behavior. And why on earth do all the heroines get obsessed with wedding dresses and giant diamond rings at the end? Either way, I did enjoy this one more than the other novels - it was better paced and fleshed out. Just really beginning to dislike the above.

    Page turner. Could not put this down, from the first page to last. Great read full fun fear and love. Rude and Sadie's chemistry was brilliant. The love he show his even when he wanted to kill her for the choices she where brilliantly written into the story. Also the fear for Sadie when she was kidnapped by hi sperm diner ( the name he gave his vile Father). This is a story has it all action, love and fun.

    I won't say much because this isn't really my preferred genre to begin with. Picked it because the description sounded interesting. I did finish the book, but only because I finish every book every time. I didn't like the "powerless and willing to forgive everything because he's hot" message, and the story twists got increasingly ridiculous as the story continued. Major issues treated lightly sealed the book's fate in my mind.
