Professional wallflower Nicole Andrews can’t wait to get out of Marlowe Junction. With only one year to go, she is eager to become the best college applicant at Rosemark High. There’s only one problem: She still hasn’t found a niche to make her appear more well-rounded. When a chance encounter with hottie-extraordinaire Chase Saunders pushes her in the direction of cross-country, Nicole thinks she’s finally found her answer. If only she could focus on her race times and stop getting distracted by Chase.

Reading a series from the ending (started with book 3) threw me off a bit. It made me want to know more abou the additional characters in the story, but it didn't take away from the story.

Chasing Love is a YA story that talks about one finding themselves and sorting it all out while finding LOVE! It makes you reminence about the past and it makes you look forward to the future.

Nicole meets Chase in an embarrasing situation! She has to try to save some composure but Chase makes it easy. He seems like an average guy and doesn't realize how many see him.

Their story progresses into a sweet & fun story. It lets you think back to the days when life was simple, and you didn't sit in front of a computer all day. You get to know the characters and the life around them.
The narrators brought the story to life and they made the story fun!
I will definitely be reading the entire series!

Max and Anna start the Harmless series and make you fall in love with the characters and the story. While the two have been best friends for quite some time, they managed to not cross the line in order to keep that friendship. But enchiladas & margaritas can always change things.
Max was the man who always took care of those around him. He took over for his father when he become ill and was determine to do what was best for everyone.
Anna was a free spirit. She lived life by her own rules and she didn't hold her life to the standards of society.
The narrator of this story brought one of my favorite stories to life. The characters were able to keep their charm and fiestyness.
This was a great start to bringing to life the series that we all love so much!

Who doesn't love the Harris brothers...
Camden and Indie started off the Harris Brothers series, and this short listen brings their relationship to an amazing GOAL! Camden has to live with his jealous & protectiveness for Indie while she works around a bunch of futbol players! He wants to make sure that no one bothers her, but protecting her causes even more issues.
Indie has gone through life unsure of certain parts of her life. She hides a lot and Camden is determined to make it all better for her.
He does! And you will love him more for it!
This extra dose of Indie & Camden will be just what you need. And of course the rest of the family have their moments (especially Tanner!)

Sometimes you need to change your reading from Hot & Steamy to Sweet with Heat...

Addison Cole has brought another installment of her Seaside Summer series. Jenna & Pete have been friends for as long as she could remember. They have gone through life with a strong friendship. But under the surface, they wanted to be noticed by the other.
Pete doesn't want to feel the rejection of letting his feeling out and being shot down, so he sits by and only lets the friendship show.
Jenna needs more. She wants love and someone who will give her the passion she craves. So while Jenna tries to find that person, Pete decides that he needs to cross that friendship line.
This series has been a great additon to my collection. The books bring about a sweet love affair that fits the characters in this book. You want more of them and the circle of friends.
I also listened to this on audio, and the audio version brings the characters to life and draws you in. Definitely one my favs.

A great story & a sweet romance.
This was the first story that I read/listened to in the series, and I didn't feel completely lost. It did give me the itch to read the others though.
Sky & Sawyer are both looking for something. And seem to find it in each other. They have to be able to get over their own personal hurdles to get to where they belong.
Listening to this story, brings the story to life and makes you truly feel the characters.
Loved the story! And looking forward to listening to the others.

One of my favorite type of reads/listens! This story brought about two characters who knew each other, loved each other, and lived life apart before being brought back together under life's circumstances! And even when they were brought back together, all their problems were not just solved. The author took them through life and made the story something that they had to work for!

Max and Sara are two characters that you will fall in love with. Their journeys will draw you in and make you want them to have their HEA! They open your heart and give you a bit of joy in the process.

This story was so well written and the characters all make the story fantastic.

This is definitely being added to my favorite listen pile!

Tanner Harris has been busy shagging his way through the ladies of east London, but getting caught by the paparazzi buck-naked with his trouser snake in his hands means he's sowed his last wild oat. Dr. Belle Ryan once thought Tanner Harris was the perfect kind of bearded bad boy she needed to relieve a bit of stress after her intense job as a surgical fellow, but an icy cold rejection from London's sluttiest footballer puts the two at each other's throats.

It is always the wild ones that have the biggest hearts... This will explain why Tanner Harris & Belle Ryan have the most endearing story. They fight, love, and protect! And it just gets better & better...

Tanner Harris believes he is the family disappointment. He doesn't let anyone truly know him, even when he is is doing something amazing. He keeps getting caught with his pants down (or completely OFF)
Belle Ryan has the inner hatred for the Wild Harris Brother. She is forced to see him often, but has been aggravated with Tanner for a while. So when he is caught with is pants down, and she is caught in the cross hairs, Belle is forced to link herself to Tanner. This proves to be a challenge, but she is determined to make the most of it.

This is definitely an Enemies to Lovers type of story... And becoming lovers seems more painful than fun (at first!) But the lives of Tanner and Belle are forever changed due to the events in their lives and they are forced to look at their lives with more honesty!

Tanner definitely wove his way into my heart and he shows more of himself throughout the story. He makes you see how your partner becomes your best friend and what you have to do to hold that friendship and love together.

Belle is just what Tanner needs and vice versa. Tanner isn't the only one trying to keep his head above water.

The fun of this story makes you want to keep listening. And it doesn't hurt that Will Watt's voice makes you MELT!

They were best friends until they became roommates. Booker Harris has spent the last several years pushing himself to become the best goalkeeper in the Championship League. Tired of living in the shadows of his headline-splashing brothers, he has finally carved a path of his own. As a child, Poppy McAdams was content in her own little make-believe world, until the boy next door with dimples and pained eyes came barreling into her makeshift fort demanding all her attention. Best friends for most of their lives, everything changes when Poppy abruptly leaves London for University. Now she is back, and gone is the awkward girl from Booker's youth.

Booker Harris has quite a time being the youngest of the Harris children. He is never truly seen but always has a lot to say. He looks for his place in the world, and on the field, and he makes sure to hold on to everything & everyone that is dear in his life.
Poppy McAdams is the adventurous and happy neighbor to the the Harris family. She also has been Booker's best friend since they were kids. They hit a rough patch, but when Poppy returns to town, it is time to get back to that friendship that has been the focal point of their lives. Poppy is also fighting to be seen in life (just like Booker!)

This is the epic friends to enemies (somewhat) to friends to lovers story!
This story definitely pulls at your heartstrings and it keeps you cheering for the Harris Brothers.
I truly enjoyed the family togetherness and the relationships that keep growning between all the brothers (and their women!)

This group conintues to allow strong women to shape the lives of the wild men who just need the right right woman to acheive their highest potential!

I can't wait to get more of the Harris Brothers.

Camden Harris, the famously hot, hulk of a footballer is laid up in a London hospital. But his busted knee doesn't stop him from running his well-practiced game on Indie Porter - his redheaded spitfire of a doctor. She's not his type, not even close. But she could be the perfect distraction from the soul-crushing damage this injury could cost him.

Who doesn't want to have a Tequila Sunrise with a HAWT Footballer... Indie Porter could do without the complication since she is the doctor who is set to operate on the man in question. Being a high profile footballer who is in need of a career altering surgery, Indie has to tread lightly and make sure that he is well taken care of. That just doesn't set her up for his charm and the instant attraction the two have for each other.
Camden Harris is not looking for anything permanent, but he is just the guy to satisfy what Indie needs out of life. He makes no promises, except to be GREAT for her!
This is definitely a test of wills for both Indie and Camden. They run into different obstacles that they must fight through. Camden uses his charm to get through to Indie and he is shocked when it doesn't work as well as it usually does.
Amy Daws, had definitely created a series that has you falling in love with the Harris Brothers/Sister & all those that they bring into the group.
You will definitely want more of this family.
And Will Watt is just a whole lot of sexy when he starts talking!

I truly love Beverly Preston's work!
I didn't read the stories in order, but that didn't harm the story in any way!
This story was truly a great love story and I was in love with Tess & Tom!
The story has so many facets to it... A strong woman who has to remain strong after a sudden tragedy. A mother who has to keep up a smile while her children worry if she will be ok. And children who are worried about their mother and want her to get that smile back.
And then there is Tom who is living the life of a STAR and just trying to get in some relaxation. He is on vacation in Bora Bora and runs into Tess.

Finding love after tragedy is the journey that Tess is on. It isn't something she expected, but she finds a way to start the day anew.
I loved how the story was told. And the narrator brought the story to life!
Definitely looking forward to listening the rest of the series.
