The Washington Triplet series is made up of three distinct stories, each matching the tone and individuality of each sister. We follow each sister as she starts a new life in a new state, creating their own unique path in life and find love. All three stories take place over the same period of time, six months after the death of their mother, and six weeks before their father is to be married. Each novella is written by a different author, but manage to keep similarities throughout so well that you’ll forget there’s someone new writing as you move through the series.
Mya starts her new life in New York City working as a bartender in a busy night club. She meets sexy tattoo artist and shop owner Colton Davis during his nephew’s 21st birthday party and the two have an instant attraction. Mya has always been considered the rebel by her sisters, the wild card. She describes herself as “loud, brash and outspoken. I loved things that made me happy and rejected things that didn’t.” Mya and Colton’s story is hot, steamy, sexy and tumultuous with a little bit of sweet added in for good measure, reminding me a little of the “Fixed” books by Laurelin Page. While Mya tries hard to keep Colton a ‘one time thing’ she quickly realizes he’s good for her and begins to understand she may be open to trusting a man to handle her rebel heart.

Marisa has long been considered the responsible “good girl” by her sisters. She has chosen to start her new path in life in Alaska working as an HR Assistant. She meets Zach Greer ever so briefly near the beginning of the story in an elevator and she immediately develops a crush on his tall, dark and handsome figure. Amazingly, the two come face to face a couple more times before they end up at dinner together where Marisa thinks to herself “I seriously want to rip my heart out and toss it on the table. He can have it, steal it and captivate it forever.” (So funny!!) Marisa learns Zach is also dealing with loss and disappointment and together they learn to fall in love. Marisa and Zach’s story is sweet, romantic and loving, reminding me of a “Heart of Montana” book by Katy Rengery. PURCHASE: http://amzn.to/YNN4AK
Mikala has been reserved and closed off for years following an event the summer after her senior year of high school. While her sisters and family always knew something was “off”, no one ever really knew the entire story of what made her so quiet and shy. Mikala is starting her life over under the orange and yellow sunsets of California working as an animation designer. The owner of the company, Ryan Chambers, quickly catches Mikala’s eye making her feel more comfortable and alive than she has for years. The two have a lightning fast love story and romantically marry shortly after meeting. Mikala’s story is the most complete and we learn the most about her and her parents through flashbacks. She is also the most terrified to go back home to her father’s wedding because of the “possibility that the one who took more from me than I ever gave will most likely be there.” But with Ryan standing tall and strong by her side, she knows she can handle anything. This book is reminiscent of “The Words” books by Georgina Guthrie. PURCHASE: http://amzn.to/1xCergb
I love that each story is very unique from the other giving the reader a completely different take on the story of the triplets’ father, his new fiancée and their mother. I adored the sisters as each hold a piece of myself in their stories. The males in each read are the perfect mix of alpha, romantic and loving giving us even more book boyfriends to swoon over.
This is an “easy reading” series and all three novella’s could be read in a short amount of time – I read them all over the course of a few days. I enjoyed the fact that while each story focuses on the new men in each girls’ life, it also highlights the new friendships each Washington sister is forming as well. These are truly stories of starting over and learning to live on your own two feet.

DANIELLE ALLEN ~ AUTHOR BIO: I am a married event planner, life coach and instructor. Between my awesome friends and family and my amazing husband, I am constantly surrounded by love. My goal at all times is to love what I’m doing and enjoy life. I love shopping and football with equal fervor. I’m an amateur movie critic (i.e. my husband and I watch and critique a lot of movies for fun). I love to read, but since I’ve been writing, I don’t read as much as I used to. I love music. A good lyric with a good melody can paint a vivid picture and invoke such a range of emotions. I have a soft spot for most mediums of creative, artistic expression. But music is probably my favorite.
