  • PHENOMENAL FRIENDS TO LOVERS BOOK!!!

    Since You’ve Been Gone is a fabulous “friends to lovers” and “second chance at love” romance and I could not wait for it to hit my tablet!! These days, I never expect anything less from the phenomenal Samantha Chase. Since You’ve Been Gone is the 8th book in Ms. Chase’s Magnolia Sound series. And, in my opinion, the series just keeps getting better and better. I love the fact that part of the story is the saving, and adoption of pets (kudos, Ms. Chase for making your readers, not that we needed it, aware of these animals’ plights). All my furbabies have been rescues. As I sit here thinking about what to write in my review I am smiling about Emma and Garretts story. I really loved them being best friends growing up, and each afraid to tell the other of their feelings. But this led to a disaster of a marriage and divorce for Emma. Communication, folks!!! Communication would have saved them a whole lot of heartache!!! Emma’s ex knocked her confidence in herself to an all time low. Because of this, when Garrett comes back to town, she does not want to even see him, she is too ashamed of what has become of her life. Garrett certainly does not see her as a failure. He still sees here as the most beautiful girl, both inside and out. I loved watching these two come to know each other again. They are definitely meant for each other. I LOVE book series, a LOT. Because, we get to see some of the previous characters and how their lives are going. I really enjoyed seeing how Emma fangirled over Mia and how they became friends in spite of it. This book also has ALL OF THE FEELS! Definitely love, but also laughter, comedy, and tears (both happy and sadness) but also anger. Anger especially when…. STOP, sorry Ladies, I do not want to give anything away. I will say this, Ms. Chase, I want to know what happens between G and D. Again, sorry Ladies, not giving anything away. I was gifted with a copy of this fabulous book for my reading enjoyment and opinions of the book. Phenomenal, a must read, I could not put it down, I did one of my “all-nighters” reading it, it was so good!!! I love this book so much that I already purchased the audio copy of it (darn!!! It does not come out until August 10th!!! Thank you for reading my review. I know you will enjoy this book as much as I have, so what are you waiting for hit that purchase button from your favorite retailer. You will not be disappointed.

  • Back to Magnolia Sound!

    I loved Garrett and Emma’s second chance at love story! These childhood friends haven’t seen each other in years, and one doesn’t know the other has been in love with them for since they were kids. But life isn’t as simple as it was back then, and Emma is dealing with life after her divorce while Garrett is looking to start his as a veterinarian. Other issues pop up as well, but let’s not spoil the surprises contained inside! I enjoyed visiting Magnolia Sound again, but I wish that a few more former characters had made an appearance or two. Garrett is swoony but Emma was the star of the show for me. Great writing and plot, per usual, from an author who always delivers a wonderful HEA!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Another Great Visit to Magnolia Sound

    Garrett and Emma’s story in Since You’ve Been Gone, book eight in Samantha Chase’s Magnolia Sound series, is an emotional and heartwarming tale where friends become lovers. Garrett Coleman knew that Emmaline Ryan was the girl for him when he was only eight years old; only he never told her becoming her best friend instead. Years later, he followed his dreams to become a veterinarian and a reluctant media star; the shirtless #HotDoc and #SexyVet, saving scared and helpless animals. That role has been great for the places he was helping, but now he’s only seen as that person and not the real Garrett, well-qualified and with a shirt on. Emma has always been the smart, shy girl who plays it safe. Not that it helped her when her ex-husband ransacked their bank accounts and left her with a mountain of debt to pay off. Once the divorce was final and her ex disappeared, she stopped believing in fairy tales and miracles. Emma’s family animal rescue is in need of help placing all their animals, but she is reluctant to contact Garrett for help. Garrett returns to Magnolia Sound at the request of his brother, Austin, and unexpectedly runs into Emma. Catching up over dinner, these two friends connect on many levels, deciding that it was time to explore the connection they shared. The magnetism between these two, along with the cracking electricity and sizzling chemistry led to wonderful story of pursuing dreams, passions, and learning that it’s okay to ask for help from those who love you. Ms. Chase wrote a wonderful, heartwarming and emotional story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing secondary characters giving Emma and Garrett a chance at love, happiness and the possibility of a forever together. I highly recommend Since You’ve Been Gone to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

  • Magnolia Sound forever in my heart

    Samantha Chase always delivers a book that captivates her readers heart. The worlds she creates through her books are mesmerizing and dreamy. The heroes and heroines of her books are down to earth and realistic. The words dance of the pages of her books and into her reader's hearts forever to stay. Samantha Chase always puts everything she has into her books which guarantee her reader's to feel all the feels. Samantha Chase has a beautiful mind and I wish I could write like her. In Since You've Been Gone we get Garrett Coleman's story. Garret is just dreamy. He loves animal's and is all about saving them. Enter Emmeline (Emma) Ryan. Garrett has loved Emma for years. From the moment they reconnect there is loads of chemistry. I loved every aspect of Since You've Been Gone. I love the secondary characters. I love watching Emma and Garrett overcome their struggles. The sweet, cute animals warmed my heart. I loved Axel. I just want to snuggle with a sweet puppy and make it feel safe. Garrett and Emma's journey was phenomenal. I laughed, cried and had heartwarming moments. I couldn't stop reading Since You've Been Gone. The details in the book were enchanting. Since You've Been Gone was a delightful and beautifully crafted story. It was a page turner. I love Magnolia Sound and wish I could live there. It was a true honor to read Since You've Been Gone.

  • Excellent!!

    This story really touched my heart. Emmaline (Emma) and Garrett’s story goes from a long time friendship to discovering their mutual feelings and the family entanglements and life that intercedes. The way Emma and Garrett navigate their way through it all to come out on the other side is sweet and beautiful. I loved Emma’s independence when it came to what she wanted and the way she was able to give Garrett his confidence back. From the first paragraph I couldn’t put it down.

    Thanks for your feedback!
