    Why is it that when you want peace and quite everything seems to conspire to make sure you are annoyed at every turn Officer Garrett Jamison is going through a point in his life where he is conflicted about not only the choices he has made in the past but also his sense of judgement Personally this was worrying enough, but as a cop he is petrifies that he will make the most monumental mistake and he has two much to lose With all this on his mind the neighbours cat doing a nightly catcall is Why is it that when you want peace and quite everything seems to conspire to make sure you are annoyed at every turn Officer Garrett Jamison is going through a point in his life where he is conflicted about not only the choices he has made in the past but also his sense of judgement Personally this was worrying enough, but as a cop he is petrifies that he will make the most monumental mistake and he has two much to lose With all this on his mind the neighbours cat doing a nightly catcall is not helping, to find said neighbour at the local diner is just about the last straw and he gives her a bitthan neighbourly advise Jessica McGovern is the neighbour in question and she is one feisty woman and gives as good as she gets Jessica has moved to small town Green Bay not only for a change of scenery but also for a change in her lifestyle Things has not been going so well for her since the lose of her son and so with her ever faithful cat she packs up and starts small town living.Jessica did not count on one of her neighbour being a big brawny man who hated her cat and was a nuisance at every turn The last straw was when he turns up at her work place and started in on her well she does what any red blooded female would do she belted him one Yeah she really did It s never good to assault the neighbour especially when he s a member of the local law One thing it did though was open the channels for Jessica and Garrett to air their difference which turns out to be a healthy attraction that they had no prospect of denying This does not go smoothly however as Garrett is hot tempered and quick to judge while Jessica s past has followed her to Green Bay and it doesn t appear to be leaving anytime soon Positive Firstly from the moment I met Garrett in THERE S ONLY BEEN YOU I loved him and am so pleased that Ms Rogers gave him his chance at a happily forever after.Once again Ms Rogers starts off with a scenario that you can t help but get drawn into A man, a woman and an overlarge cat need I say .The story line is fast and very pacey not a dull moment and if you blink you would probably miss any of the numerous antics that Ms Rogers fill this book with.MEANT TO BE is a character driven book the cast all bring something to the plot, some good, some scary and some you just love just because it come wrapped up in a nine years old ball of fire.All the cast from the previous book makes an appearance, some with their own little story, some just there for nefarious reasons and some for comic relieve.This book can stand on it s own however if I had not read the first book THERE S ONLY BEEN YOU I don t think I would have empathise or fallen in and out of love with the cast as I did.The language is definitely small town language no over the top glorified city ways but nosey neighbours, lack of privacy andover everyone seems to have a hand in planning Garrets life and it is such fun to watch.I like the dynamics that Ms Rodgers brings out in the cast especially among the Jamison siblings they are brothers and sisters they tease, they quarrel, they fuss and they make up in style I really like that about this family The mystery was an unexpected twist to this book and it really gave the book an edge all the other family dynamics, the laughter, the tears, the uncertainty felt like window dressing once the mystery was tossed in I think this is were Ms Rogers shine she brings a lot of little things together and it worked.Bottom LineMEANT TO BE is a wonderful follow up to Ms Rogers Green Bay series With a plot that just keeps on twisting and turning I was on the edge of my seat with impatience for the good guy to get his act together and for the bad guys to feel a true alpha male in motion While the first book ticked all the boxes of what I like to read MEANT TO BE enhance on it and took it to a whole new level I really enjoy this book NigglesJessica started out in the book as a feisty take charge sort of woman and when the first sign of angst comes her way she literally became this guarded mouse of a person no matter how I look at it, I can t get over the change in her There are justification for this but there was a moment there when TSTL kicked in and I wanted to literally give her the boots right up the whazhoo I love books with kids and sometimes plots are written in such a way to put them in danger which in itself is part and parcel of the plot One book with this scenario I can just accept as part of the plot, two books I am thinking, too much now, this child would be very much traumatise by how every low life passing through Green Bay with a beef against his family grabs him as a convenient target not liking that at all.CoverI would probably say just an average cover, nothing to like but nothing to hate either

    Aww, yes that is how it made me feel It was great from the start and then it just got better and better At one time I had to stop reading, because sleep is important But yes I sure wished I had an e reader so I could have read during my lunch break.There s only been You is the first book, but it no series so you can read this book first Sure you learn some things in it, but even without having read book 1 I could still see the big picture, and it s even mentioned in the blurb The little Aww, yes that is how it made me feel It was great from the start and then it just got better and better At one time I had to stop reading, because sleep is important But yes I sure wished I had an e reader so I could have read during my lunch break.There s only been You is the first book, but it no series so you can read this book first Sure you learn some things in it, but even without having read book 1 I could still see the big picture, and it s even mentioned in the blurb The little details she doesn t mention I will still be surprised to see what goes on in that book Garrett s sister had the lead in that one And this is a stand alone novel about Garret and Jessica But I am glad I have book 1 because I want to readof her, but will wait a while and perhaps some things and names will slip my mind.Garret is unsure about his police career after being shot and his nephew being kidnapped Jessica is running from a tragedy in her past and dark memories When they first meet sparks fly, but not in a good way They dislike each other, but still there is something that pushes them together.For all you alpha male loving gals out there, here they are That must sure be a good looking family Garrett, his brother Nick who I would love to learnabout , and his uncle Luke Who gets his own little side story of love in this book and that is so sweet.I fell for both at once, Garrett, who even if he says the wrong things still is so lovable and it just oozes out of him, it makes me go awww Jessica is a bit broken, and I only wish the best for her A bug strong guy who can pick her up and man it better Make her learn to trust again and fall in love.I know it was a romance, but I didn t see the suspense coming It picks up and I will not mention cos of what, but it gets dangerous That had me sitting at the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen It just got bigger and bigger and the suspense was killing me Not to mention the romance part, they were stupid both at times, but then again aren t we all.The romance part was great, and since I loved them from the start I was rooting for a big old HEA Then some dark clouds from both their pasts showed up And that sure picked up an already good story.Negative parts, I can t really think of anything Other than I would sure have loved it evenif it had been a real book I could hold, lol, then I could have read the whole thing at once Nothing to complain about when it comes to this book It was sweet, romantic, hot, sexy alpha males, suspense, and a great story It made me jump at the other book at once, and it left me in a happy satisfied mood

    I really liked the first book in the series, this one not so much Jessica had absolutely no backbone While Jessica was at work, her son fell off a counter and died, because his father was next door screwing the neighbor instead of watching him After Wade is released from jail, she allows him to stay in her house and put the lives of everyone she loves in danger Innocent people get shot and what happens to Garrett is mind boggling Sorry This book just really made me angry

    Spoiler So I read this story, a couple part several times, because so parts didn t make sense to me Did he actually cheat It said they were making out, but right before that he move the girls arms That didn t make sense and it never did say if he actually cheated Some parts seemed rushed.

    Oh boy..Meant to Be started out really good funny, sexual tension all over the place, angsty moments that were thrilling.and thenthings just started getting a little too much for me to fully grasp There were too many little stories going on in one story that I felt were not necessary, the heroine in the story was annoying as all hell really, really dense and weak , and the story all in all just had not enough depth to keep me remotely interested When I found myself skim Oh boy..Meant to Be started out really good funny, sexual tension all over the place, angsty moments that were thrilling.and thenthings just started getting a little too much for me to fully grasp There were too many little stories going on in one story that I felt were not necessary, the heroine in the story was annoying as all hell really, really dense and weak , and the story all in all just had not enough depth to keep me remotely interested When I found myself skim reading just to finish, I was so disappointed because I really thought this was going to be a fantastic read Like I said, the beginning draws you in and then it s like you re placed at the edge of a cliff and pushed off.Again, this is just my opinion

    It s likecrack The first book was like crack Or so I ve been told..The first book grabbed me and deprived me of sleep until I finished it This one did it to me a second night in a row And last night was werewolves and puma shifters which has nothing to do with this author, but in case this review just stops like a stupid cliffhanger, it s from exhaustion, not trying to rope you into readingof my reviews.All I can say is that Garrett and Jess were great Very likeable character It s likecrack The first book was like crack Or so I ve been told..The first book grabbed me and deprived me of sleep until I finished it This one did it to me a second night in a row And last night was werewolves and puma shifters which has nothing to do with this author, but in case this review just stops like a stupid cliffhanger, it s from exhaustion, not trying to rope you into readingof my reviews.All I can say is that Garrett and Jess were great Very likeable characters, and you pull for them even though you know you don t have to because a book like this would be pointless without a happy ending The backstory very heavy death of a child know that before you go into it One the other hand, there isEthan and a 22 pound killer cat, so what s not to like Another awesome book
