    It s no secret that I love Sarah Morgan s books I love her author voice and her characters always do it for me While I liked First Time in Forever, I didn t love it It lacked a certain omph factor for me Emily is hiding out in Puffin Island with her niece Lizzy after her famous half sister died in a plane crash Ryan is a former journalist who lives on the island They re attracted to each other but because of their individual baggage, can t commit to a long term relationship So they danc It s no secret that I love Sarah Morgan s books I love her author voice and her characters always do it for me While I liked First Time in Forever, I didn t love it It lacked a certain omph factor for me Emily is hiding out in Puffin Island with her niece Lizzy after her famous half sister died in a plane crash Ryan is a former journalist who lives on the island They re attracted to each other but because of their individual baggage, can t commit to a long term relationship So they dance around their attraction and then some.I have no problem with that type of premise at all But my issue with this book was I didn t feel the chemistry between Ryan and Emily Their connection felt forced to me And it doesn t help that I found Emily too timid and too suspicious for my taste I get it She has a reason to be but she frustrated me a bit Ryan also tried my patience He keeps saying he doesn t want that kind of relationship but he goes out of his way to get close to Emily and Lizzy I still enjoyed this one enough to continue with this series I m really looking forward to Alec and Skylar s story ARC provided by Harlequin via Edelweiss for an honest review.

    Coffee dates with First Time in ForeverFirst date We meet Emily and Lizzie her niece as they make their way on the ferry to Puffin Island Emily has an overwhelming fear of water and is very unsure of her new role as Emily s stand in Mom Morgan allowed me to connect to both of them and I am anxious to see what develops Enter Ryan Cooper He owes Brit a favor and when she asks him to check in on her friend staying at the Castaway Cottage he agrees She isn t his type and the kid should be an i Coffee dates with First Time in ForeverFirst date We meet Emily and Lizzie her niece as they make their way on the ferry to Puffin Island Emily has an overwhelming fear of water and is very unsure of her new role as Emily s stand in Mom Morgan allowed me to connect to both of them and I am anxious to see what develops Enter Ryan Cooper He owes Brit a favor and when she asks him to check in on her friend staying at the Castaway Cottage he agrees She isn t his type and the kid should be an instant warning but he cannot help getting involved She is frightened by Ryan and yet drawn to him.Second date Ryan instinctively knows Emily is hiding something but there is no denying the chemistry between them It was fun unraveling their secrets and getting to know the characters, the island and the town folks Emily kept folks at arm s length but here on the island she is finding it hard, especially with Ryan who awakens things in her Morgan takes time to flesh out the characters, sharing their backstory and giving the reader a sense of what makes them tick She allowed me to connect and become caught up in their story Lizzie is adorable and I dare you not to fall for her From Ryan s grandmother to the ice cream shop Morgan brings the island to life Skylar one of Emily s best friends visits and we see some chemistry between her and Ryan s friends When and if these two tango it should be delicious Skylar has a tendency to speak her mind and the banter was hilarious Morgan also hinted at what direction Brit s story will take and it looks like a second chance romance.Third date Watching Ryan and Emily tango gave me the warm fuzzes The island is transforming Emily and she is slowly breaking out of her shell The romance developed slowly and was not without obstacles as each realizes what they wanted is not what they need at all Danger, a fright and a little angst surround our final date but it was not overly done A meddling grandma and townsfolk added to the charm and endeared me to the island.Copy provided by publisher This review was originally posted at Caffeinated Book Reviewer

    4 Feelings are the hardest thing in life to control Stars I am starting to get a little author crush on Sarah Morgan, I fell in love with her writing style and easy going story telling after reading her 2014 novel Maybe The Christmas, so when the opportunity presented itself to read the first book in her new Puffin Island series, it was a total no brainer First Time in Forever is the perfect beginning, three friends Emily, Brittany and Skylar have used Brittany s grandmothers beach home Cas 4 Feelings are the hardest thing in life to control Stars I am starting to get a little author crush on Sarah Morgan, I fell in love with her writing style and easy going story telling after reading her 2014 novel Maybe The Christmas, so when the opportunity presented itself to read the first book in her new Puffin Island series, it was a total no brainer First Time in Forever is the perfect beginning, three friends Emily, Brittany and Skylar have used Brittany s grandmothers beach home Castaway Cottage over the years and for each of them it has become something of a refuge, all for their own reasons, and each of them have their own stories as to why This book is Emily s, and the story is wholly her own, but it also sets the scene, introduces the islanders and gives you the background for everything else along the way Ryan Cooper has spent a large part of his life being responsible for others, he isn t interested in taking that role on any, life is his for the living, and no responsibilities, attachments or expectations are wanted in the mix any That is until Emily arrives on the Island, with a young child in tow, he can sense her unease, her emotional detachment and her overall fear of the whole situation she is in, and the honorable man in him wants to help, it doesn t hurt that he is sex on a stick hot, charming to a fault and gets along with pretty much everyone he crosses paths with I see you Emily Donovan I m standing here, looking right at you, so you can damn well stop hiding This is one of those books I just get absorbed in, I loved the main story, I loved all the little side stories that ran through it as well, you are literally getting to know the Island and its inhabitants as Emily and Ryan work out what they actually want from each other A brilliant start to what I expect is going to be an extremely memorable series Brittany and Zach are reunited on the Island in the next book in the series Some Kind of Wonderful which is due in July 2015, so not too long for this eager reader to wait ARC generously provided via Netgalley, it was my pleasure to provide the above honest review

    This was okay, and I liked it a wholein the end than in the beginning Most of the beginning felt contrived It didn t help that some things came across as manipulative on the part of the author.Emily is one of those heroines the author expects us to believe has been essentially the same her entire life She suffered an early trauma and that has supposedly affected her entire life until now There are a few reasons that doesn t work First, nobody is entirely the same her entire life Adol This was okay, and I liked it a wholein the end than in the beginning Most of the beginning felt contrived It didn t help that some things came across as manipulative on the part of the author.Emily is one of those heroines the author expects us to believe has been essentially the same her entire life She suffered an early trauma and that has supposedly affected her entire life until now There are a few reasons that doesn t work First, nobody is entirely the same her entire life Adolescents don t stay the same for even months Sure, basic personality remainsor less constant though hormones mess with even that baseline , but something brought about by childhood trauma requires a good deal of reinforcement to remain even through childhood Second, if you are going to try to establish this difficulty to attach to others, then you probably shouldn t base your entire series on three friends who would do anything for each other The whole time Emily is going on about her refusal to love and no that isn t a spoiler as this comes up really early , she s also relying on that friendship that is the very definition of love and dependence and support.To add to the sense of artificiality, Morgan also gives us an extreme case of insta lust Emily and Ryan are panting after each other from first sight While this isn t as bad as insta love, it still feels like the author manipulating the story so that the tension comes between this insta lust and then a pile of things keeping them apart This fed into my disbelief in Emily s trauma such that I felt the whole thing manufactured.All of that makes this seem like I hated itthan I did Part of it is saved by being attached to Lizzie, the child thrust upon Emily by cruel fate Morgan has a talent for making the child engaging and an organic part of the story such that I attached pretty early and deeply Indeed, my warming to Ryan at all was due to his engagement with Lizzie as she brings out his caring nature I was a little surprised to find myself attached to him before I finally warmed to Emily, frankly That s because his character has his own batch of manufactured feeling hang ups as well I kept waiting for someone to point out that his aversion to children was a huge slap in the face to his sister long, spoilery story and a huge betrayal for all that she meant to him Nobody ever did.And there I am griping again The amazing thing is honest tears wrenched from me the happy kind as Emily began overcoming her past and learning to let others in Even though I can t buy the background cause of her issues, Morgan does a great job making them feel real and present in their current manifestation And she does an even better job showing Emily overcome piece by piece as she finds the peace and support that she needs in Puffin Island The final coming together of Emily and Ryan felt rushed, but I can forgive that in the face of all the other great developments and progress.If I hadn t felt so disconnected by what felt like manipulation up front, this would probably be a clear four stars As it is, it s a solid three and an acknowledgement that it may be my own personal quirks that kept me from fully enjoying the setup And while I might not have bought the background, the foreground was a fun story with a strong setting that I look forward to entering in later books of the series.A note about Steamy Surprisingly low, actually It s the high end of low, but still One explicit sex scene and one explicit, uh, not quite sex scene and some minor fooling around in between With the insta lust, I expectedand was gratified it was as restrained as it was mostly because the story didn t need anythan it got so the explicit bits were well embedded into the story and I always appreciate that

    Review posted Happily Ever After ReadsBlog rating C If you ve read any of my past reviews, you ll already know I m a sucker when it comes to sweet small town, or island in this case, stories, and that s what we get with this new Puffin Island series Ryan, a former journalist, moved back to the island after a tragic accident while he was on assignment He was injured and the accident killed his friend and co worker After a childhood cut short by his parent s deaths, he was forced to grow up Review posted Happily Ever After ReadsBlog rating C If you ve read any of my past reviews, you ll already know I m a sucker when it comes to sweet small town, or island in this case, stories, and that s what we get with this new Puffin Island series Ryan, a former journalist, moved back to the island after a tragic accident while he was on assignment He was injured and the accident killed his friend and co worker After a childhood cut short by his parent s deaths, he was forced to grow up fast to help his Grandmother care for his three younger siblings All of these experiences has led him to vow to live the single life up and Ryan just doesn t see a future of marriage and kids as being the thing for him.Emily is hiding out from the press after taking over as guardian for her 6 year old niece, a little girl she met for the first time after Emily s famous half sister was killed The press is out to get the story and Emily wants to hide with Lizzy and protect her from any and everything This fierce, overprotective desire comes from a tragic accident in Emily s past the hero and heroine both were dealt some bad past blows that s left her terrified of the sea and reluctant to form any close relationships Initially, she keeps Lizzy at arms length, but that doesn t last long and she ends up falling in love with this sweet little girl who never really knew her mom and just wants a safe place to live.I enjoyed the setup for this series and I love the small town feel I really liked getting to know Emily and learningabout her two best friends Same with Ryan, we meet some of his friends and his sister, and all I kept thinking was, yes,characters for future books The island setting, the people, the charm, it s all there and I liked it all as the backdrop for Emily and Ryan s story.Where the book lost me a bit was unfortunately Emily and Ryan Their romance just didn t do it for me For much of the book, Ryan has no interest in any type of relationship Not one with Emily and not one with Lizzy and even as he s obviously getting closer to them, he still insists that it s nothingthan a good time So by the time the story started to wrap up, it felt like Ryan s feelings did a really fast 180 and it wasn t enough for me to buy it.The steamy factor was absent Sure, Ryan and Emily have some good times, I just wantedMore sex,kissing,romance, it read overall a bit vanilla Had there beenromance between them, then maybe I could have gotten on board with believing in their relationship.I ll be coming back to Puffin Island I m intrigued by the characters lots of single characters, some with shared histories and interested to see their stories play out But I was ultimately let down by Ryan and Emily It s a nice story with that small island charm, but a very weak romance and that wasn t a great balance
