Publisher's Summary

"I may have left, but I never let you go." 

Is it too late to correct the biggest mistake of my life?  

I never thought I'd be stupid enough to lose the best thing that ever happened to me. 

But I was. And I did. 

Thea still owned my thoughts, my dreams, and my heart. I never expected to see her again, much less have to work with her for almost the entire summer. 

Every minute we're together, the air crackles between us. Everything I still feel for her, that I'll always feel for her, reflects back at me in her gorgeous golden eyes. 

I should've fought for her years ago, and after how much I hurt her, I probably don't have the right to now. 

But I can't stop until she's mine again. 

Author’s note: No Reservations is an interconnected stand-alone with characters from No Vacancy. It has a broken but lovable swoon-worthy hero, a sizzling slow burn, and all you’d ever want in a second chance summer romance.

Critic Reviews

Thea and Dom in a Second-Chance Romance

No Reservations by Stephanie Rose is the second book of the Ocean Cove Series. It follows Dom and Thea as they try to work together in opening a new restaurant, after being broken up for over 4 years.

I really enjoyed reading about Thea and Dom’s journey back together. The circumstances of their separation are surrounded by grief; and so the chance encounter gave them the opportunity to work through their issues. They obviously loved each other very much but the chemistry is still there.

Stephanie Rose is a new-to-me author and I liked her writing style. It was an easy read and I did enjoy the back and forth from then and now between the chapters. I liked the book so much that I got No Vacancy, the first book in this series that focuses on Joe and Catarina’s story, who played big roles in this book too.

I listened to the audio version which is narrated by Lessa Lamb and Zachary Webber. I think they were both great as Thea and Dom. I fell right into the characters as they read to me.

I received an ALC in exchange for an honest review.

Enjoyed

Nice way to spend my day...Listening to Zachary and Lessa two of my favorite narrator's. Stephanie Rose is a new to me author. They both bring the story alive and enjoyed seeing the journey of friendship between Dominic and Thea. This is a second chance romance. I am looking to listening to more from this author.

Great second chance romance

Audiobook review: I enjoyed this book so very much. I haven’t listened to or read the first book but this one can definitely be read as a stand-alone. I’m a sucker for second chance romance and this one was really great. Stephanie Rose is a new to me author and Lessa Lamb is a new to me narrator and I adore Zachary Webber.

Dominic and Thea were such a great couple who parted ways because Dominic lost his mother (I could totally relate to how he felt at times). He just didn’t know how to process his feelings so he left Thea and moved away, shattering both of their hearts in the process.

Fate brings them back together for their work and Dominic is using this as a sign to try to win her back. But Thea has something she hasn’t told him yet and she isn’t sure how to. Both of them have so much hurt that they need to heal from and the need each other to find that peace.

I’m definitely going to check out book one to get Joe’s story.

I loved Zachary Webber!!

This was a cute romantic story. I loved that the author created a sweet story without using a lot of sex!! Sometimes a love story with some sex is all I need!!

My heart is so full

I don’t think my heart could be any fuller after listening to this book. This truly was a delightful listen which kept my attention the whole time The characters were great with each of the heartache and growth and their chemistry was refreshing while it was there and poignant is wasn’t over the top.

The narrators did a great job bringing this story to a me dimension and really soothing me with their voices.

I always love that aha moment when the title directly corresponds to the book and this one didn’t disappoint.

emotional 2nd chance romance

This was an emotional rollercoaster from the beginning! I was lucky to receive this in an audiobook and let me tell you.. Zachary and Lessa brought this book to life and gave it all the emotions it needed.
I could feel Dominic's and Thea's pain as they sorted through their issues and second chance at love.
There were tears shed and lots of cheering for their HEA!!

No Reservations

I am usually not a quick audiobook listener; I actually prefer to read books, and only listen to audios while in the car. But, I was so into No Reservations that I found time to sneak extra time in whenever I could! Lessa Lamb and Zachary Webber did a fantastic job of narrating Stephanie Rose's words, and bringing Dominic and Thea to life!

amazing audible and story!!

This is the first book I've read/ listened to from this author and I am sooooo in love with these characters. I'm so going to have to read the 1st book in the Ocean Cove series!

This story really struck a cord with me since I also lost my mom to cancer, so I totally know how Dominic felt. He had the world in his palm and the love of Thea until his mom died and then he needed time away to find himself. Unfortunately he broke Thea's heart in the process. He moves up to where his buddy opened a bar to help him out... and then YEARS later Thea shows back up in his life.

Their story is tragic, but thankfully they were able to forget the past and start anew.

The narrators did an absolutely fabulous job keeping my interest and I give them 2 👍👍 !!

I recieved an ALC for my honest review.

Moving forward!

This is my first time listening to a Stephanie Rose story. Thea and Dominic’s second chance romance highlights the struggles with letting go of the past and how hard it is to be totally transparent when agreeing to start again. The lesson to be learned is that holding onto past actions can prevent one from moving forward, thereby holding you back! Luckily for them, they were both honest, loving, compassionate and understanding people. What really cemented the success of their relationship was that they were really great at being friends too!! Lessa Lamb and Zachary Webber’s performances were wonderfully done and appropriately brought the emotions intended. I look forward to more of this series.

Love second chances

I loved this story. This is a second chance romance and It has some gut wrenching parts but we do get to see a HEA. I loved getting to hear the letters Dominic wrote his mother and Thea as he was grieving both of their relationships. The narration was soo good!

A book to listen to

A couple of things made me cringe–mostly some decisions made by the main characters, or some less than honorable actions–but I had a good time nonetheless.

It’s a second chance romance, to you can expect some angst–people don’t usually break up because they’re perfectly happy. Here, both characters experience a terrible loss. One is the reason they aren’t together anymore, the other may damage their budding relationship. Neither is glossed over, and we see the impact they have with subtle touches.

I wasn’t sure if I should like Thea and Dom. Though Dom’s first reaction to his mother’s death is understandable, the way he treats Thea is awful–almost unforgivable, in my opinion. As for Thea, she also makes a couple of mistakes, and is way too eager to get back in Dominic’s arms. But they have cute scenes and sexy scenes together–both in the flashbacks and in present time.

The interactions with the secondary characters bring some levity, or are almost game changing–when they dispense sound advices. They are tools for the author to move the story forward, but they’re also compelling.

The narration was perfect. The female narrator was new to me, but I really enjoyed her energy. Both narrators bring life to the characters. And they almost made me really like them and forget their flaws! Definitely a book to listen to.

Well what can I say…

This was a gloriously well put together story. Paced just so to offer only enough information to feel that burn of emotion!  And although you can see that what happened did so for a reason and that their time was now… You can’t help mourning the years they lost together!
This story comes together beautifully with an ending you long for at the start of the journey with them… Although nothing comes easy or without its own bite of hurt!

🎧🖤 Two of my favourite narrators perform this book so it literally feels like my friends were telling me a story! Both Zachary Webber and Lessa Lamb are able to capture that bottled up pain and raw emotion! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A beautiful second-chance romance

This is my first book by this author and it kept me in its grip. It was standalone, although I will definitely be reading the first book in the series. My heart broke for Thea, who lost the love of her life, Dominic, when he spiraled into depression due to the death of his mother. They had a second chance when Thea is hired to help Dominic with the launch of a second restaurant. There's a lot of angst throughout as they try to heal from a lot of hurt and that last bit of the book really broke my heart. But through it all, there was love between the characters, which could be felt through the pages (or the narration)

I requested and received this audiobook and absolutely loved Zachary Webber and Lessa Lamb's narration. Both infused their narration with emotion and played every character really well.
