    I've not read any other books in this series but found that this book can be read on its own without reading the first two books. You may have more insight into some of the secondary characters, but the author does a great job of fleshing out any necessary details. I found the life ...

    I came across this book after reading DJ Empress' review on her blog, Books and Bindings, and knew I would probably enjoy it! As you know, or will now know, I am a sucker sugary romances - and a series to boot! Before I share a brief synopsis, wanted to share the finer details: its ...

    One thing I really appreciated about Should?ve Been You was that for 18 years the hero had a weird co-dependent friendship with the heroine?s twin sister; one that kept the hero and heroine at odds but as they spend time together and really begin to know one another the attractio...

    Note to self: Do not let a novella be the first thing you read by a romance writer. In the past I've indicated how difficult I believe it is to provide a believable romance as a novella. Frequently it's hard to do in a full-length novel. Characters have to connect and fall in love, ...

    **Copy Provided by Netgalley and St Martins Press for an honest review** I was just thinking that if you?d been my middle-school teacher, I would not have been able to focus? All men? no matter their age?can appreciate a beautiful woman. Even teachers are fair game for the s...

    My Rating: 3.5 Stars Sometimes the path life takes us on is far from the path we thought we were in control of. SHOULD?VE BEEN YOU by Nicole McLaughlin is the story of finding who and what you need, even when it has always been there, just not on your radar. Jae discovers that his b...

    Three and a half stars. Hannah and Becca Walters have lived practically next door to Jase Beckford their entire lives. His father was abusive and ever since their father brought him beaten to their house when he was 14 years old he has been a part of the family. Hannah and Becca are...

    ***ARC Provided by the Author/Publisher via NetGalley*** I enjoyed this shorter novel. I liked the idea that Jase and Becca had known one another for years but, due to a misunderstanding, had not had much to do with one another...even though Jase was best friends with Hannah, Becca'...

    Reading the description of this novella, I was definitely intrigued by the premise. However, I think the author did a disservice to all by not making it a full length novel. There were simply too many components to wrap things up well in a novella so it came across as rushed. Jase, Han...

    ARC received via Netgalley for an honest review This is the first I have read of the Man Enough series. This one was just meh for me. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it. It is a quick and sweet enough read, however the characters frustrated me so much it took some of the en...

    This story was a nice blend of romance and realism! I found the characters engaging and decently rounded out-Hannah was overly confident to hide her insecurities, Becca turned standoffish to hide hers, and Jase liked being needed, even when it wasn?t in the healthiest capacity for hi...

    I do like Nicole McLaughlin?s writing and was hoping that ?Should?ve been you? could recreate the sort of feels I got with ?Maybe I Do?. What a mess this turned out to be. Let?s start with the unrequited love (or crush) that Becca had on Jase for many years. But h...

    A good sweet, a little bit sexy, small town romance. I loved Jase and Becca as a couple. Both could/should have been together years ago but because of a misunderstanding and communication (Hannah's fault, Becca's twin & Jase's bff) they didn't find love until later. Hence the title...

    I enjoyed reading Jase and Becca's story. I liked the pace at which their backstory grew and took shape from both points of view. It paved the way for understanding what motivated their current actions in the story. I thought it was great that, when things weren't working out romantica...

    This is the third book in the Man Enough series and even though this is my first read by this author it was pretty easy to pick up on what was going on with the characters. Becca and Hannah are twins and Jase Beckford is the neighbor that Becca has been crushing on for years but he has...

    Should?ve Been You by Nicole McLaughlin is the third installment in the novella length contemporary romance series Man Enough. Each novella in the series features a different couple as the main characters so it is fine to read as a standalone or out of order if choosing to do so. ...

    I normally hate novellas bec I think they're often rushed or trying to cram too much in a few chapters. But I didn't feel like anything was missing from the story in this one. Maybe it's because that I knew that the MC's already had a past, a connection, and so the set-up was more beli...

    My favorite line in this book? ?There was always that one moment, right before you were fully alert, when you went back in time. In that moment, adult responsibility didn?t exist. There were no bills, no worries, and no muffin tops. Just the familiar smell of your mother?s favo...
