Sometimes wrong is extra right.
Mallory Spencer is in charge. As the face of Soho Savvy, the advertising firm she owns with her three best friends, it's important that she's poised, polished, and put together. However, as she watches her friends couple up and settle down, she wonders about her own happily ever after. One thing's for sure. It's not going to happen with that blue-eyed bartender from Showplace. It's irritatingly clear they couldn't be more wrong for each other...or have more chemistry.
Hope Sanders wants nothing more than to keep her head down and craft a better life for herself running everyone's favorite nightspot. That means ignoring the groupies that flock to the bar to stare at her all night. However, an uptight brunette has snagged Hope's attention, and she knows a challenge when she sees it.
A Soho Loft Romance

Welcome to our group Dakota; welcome to my life Summer, you've made it so much better. Give back to our wounded warriors who gave so much.
I have loved all six of Melissa Brayden's books, and I'm eagerly awaiting #7. I found this one less compelling than Kiss The Girl, or Waiting in the Wings, but also has fewer holes and less stretching of reality. The third and I assume the last of the the Savy Series had less emotion and fewer flaws than the previous two books in the series. Part of that is that Mallory is more rational than romantic and Hope's background has taught her to hide her own emotions. There was of course the contrived, unrealistic breakup ninety percent of the way through the book. The genre evidently requires that this occur in every book; the difficulty is in crafting a breakup that will leave the reader/listener still relating to and sympathetic to both characters. Thus said breakup must always be based on a lack of communication, some miscommunication, or misunderstanding between them. Mallory's reaction to what happens to Hope is heartwarming and love affirming and what we would all like to receive from someone we're apart from but still love. What sets the author apart from most of her peers is that her characters project as flawed human beings rather idealized lesbian angels. I eagerly await her next selection; I just hope that the audio is done concurrently with the print/kindle edition.
I mostly like to read fiction, series books of my favorite authors! Listening is a great way to read a lot.
I have enjoyed all three books of the Soho Loft books in the series by Melissa Brayden. The narrator has brought all the characters to life. I enjoy the humor along with the tears. The only suggestion I have is that the author not use the word, "prior" so much. There must be other words to use. All in all, I can't wait for the next one..
I have finally read all 3 books of the series and I can certainly say they need to make a movie out of these books. I loved each book to the fullest. Excellent write! Excellent story line! And the narrator is phenomenal..
The characters are awesome and the stories are laugh out loud funny, as well as captivating and endearing. I find I don't want the books to end. They characters are greatly enhances by the naration of Felicity Monroe, who is quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators.
Dear Felicity Munroe,
Please stop trying to do a New York dialect. You don't know how. The narration would be much better if not for the terribly distracting accents. Also, the story felt a bit rushed and more contrived than the others. There was no real build up, and I never felt any true chemistry between Mallory and Hope.
Very entertaining and lovely to listen to. Great love story. Makes me so happy to listen to this author.
of all the lesbian series I've read this one probably stands out as number one. Melissa Brayden is a consummate professional and prolific writer. her characters come to life and touch all of our hearts. so with a heavy heart I say goodbye to Brookland, Samantha, Mallory, and Hunter. but I do believe and I'll that we can revisit these four friends at some time in the future.
The SOHO books are the type of books that can be read over and over and never seem to grow tired of.
thank you Melissa and keep up the great work.
Another amazing novel from Melissa. The story continues with the Soho Savvy agency, and this time it is Mallory Spencer, the head of the agency who hooks up with a bar owner, Hope Sanders (this is based in NYC)
The strength of the story is Melissa's style of writing, which is as endearing as the characters portrayed. There is a great mix of, humour, suspense, and romance in the novel, and I recommend it.
What's nice for me about Melissa writing, is that I always come away learning something new, and wanting to do experience it as well. Such as eating fries with lemon juice outside near the Brooklyn bridge.
Felicity Munroe, brings the work alive, like no other, all the characters are distinct and full of the quirky charm written into the prose. Supper skills and talent from Felicity!
"Really loved this book"
I love everything about this book
The characters and th witty dialogue
I can't wait for the next one
"Amazing Finale to the Soho series"
Yes!!! I have already listened to this book about 5 times. I LOVE the characters and the relationships they all have with each other.
Out of the two main characters, I like Mallory best.
Out of all of the characters in this book (& the series) I love, love, love Brooklyn. There's just something about her. I love her humor and how she relates to her 3 best friends.
I fell in love with Brooklyn in the first book of the series (KISS THE GIRL) where she was one of the main characters.
This Narrator did an amazing job and I really enjoyed listening to her read this book.
She managed to give each of the characters their own voice, making it easy to tell the characters apart.
She helped to bring the characters to life and brought out each of the characters personality.
I don't want to give spoilers, so the best I can explain it is...
Where Mallory stands by and supports Hope. Also the development of Brooklyn & Jessica's relationship and Mallory's speak about the group's friendship.
I absolutely LOVE this book. It is a story about friendship, family and love. After reading (&/or listening to) this book, I feel like I know each of the characters.
This is a book (series) I can easily listen to & read, over & over again. I have already read the book 7 times and listened t the audio version 5 times.
I highly recommend these books. They are definitely worth the money/credits.
I hope you enjoy this audiobook.
The order of the books in this series...
Book 1 - Kiss the Girl (Brooklyn & Jessica).
Book 2 - Just Three Words (Samantha & Hunter).
Book 3 - Ready or Not (Mallory & Hope).
Just as good as the other books in the series I didnt want it to end. It makes you believe in love and friendship and Felicity Munroe is brilliant
the characters feel so real
Midnight chocolate, to get Mallory to go and see Hope
i wish there were more than four character which would mean more books about them
