    Second chance at 40

    I really enjoyed this book, it had the right amount of sweet, fun, crazy, angst and drama and I loved every minute of it. What I love about this series is that M.E. Carter has a different speed for each book, I loved how this one was slowly unfolding. I really enjoy these stories of women in their 30s and 40s and how M.E. Carter gives women of all ages, background, and shapes stories that are relatable. Joie is a 40- something mother who is going back to college after have sacrificed school the first time to raise her son. And here she meets the school's football coach, Jack Pride. Who by the way is awesome as hell. The book is truly inspiring, it is sorta a second chance kind of book, not with a man per se, but with life, giving yourself a second chance to become who you really are again and not the label "mom". I really liked seeing Joie transition from the role of mom into being a woman again, putting herself first, even though as a mom she technically doesn't do that since she would drop anything to be there for her kid, but trying to herself first for the first time in a long time with her school, her dating life etc. The book is really what I needed, it had soft, light and witty moments amongst, laughing out loud, crazy antics and angst drama moments. I can't wait to see what's in store next from this author.

    Pride & Joie was a wonderful second chance romance

    Pride & Joie was a wonderful second chance romance with a bit of angst. There was just the right amount of drama to keep you guessing about the future of Coach Jack Pride and Joie Stevens. Carter has a way of mixing the right amounts of serious, sweet, and funny. She always writes the most relatable characters.This is definitely a Rom-Com and a great addition to the first two books in the #MyNewLife series. The banter back and forth between the characters had me with tears in my eyes from laughing so hard.

    Pride & Joie is my favorite ME Carter bk to date!!

    M.E. Carter never fails to impress me with the realism in her stories and Pride & Joie is the epitome of her talents. This book tells the story of two every day, non-sugar coated, un-perfect people that have had real life experiences. They have come together under awkward circumstances (who hasn’t?) and met challenge after challenge together. This is a very endearing story that will make you laugh out loud a lot, and may make you tear up a bit, but it is so worth it!

    Engaging and fun!

    At first I was a little hesitant with the book, but as I read the story and the characters, I connected with them.. this author has a simple way with words that envelops you and it won’t let you go until the very end! It was refreshing to read about older characters starting over and challenging themselves!

    Another success for ME Carter!

    As with Carter's other books, this one also tells a story of characters who are relatable and engaging. I love how Carter can make you cry and then laugh on the next page. Pride & Joie is no exception. I read this story when it was three separate books, and had to wait between each release. Now, new readers get to read the whole story at once! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance and comedy with real life characters. Good job M E Carter!
