Four years ago, my dreams were shattered in an instant.

I tried to pick up the pieces and glue them back together the best I knew how, but something was always missing.

A father for my two girls.

But then, Brody Murphy landed on my doorstep, literally. He was a carefree, playful hockey player who barged into my life and messed with my head. He left me more confused than I had

First, here's my casting for Brody..

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! It was a sweet, swoony, heart-melting, romance, perfectly balanced with just enough angst to keep me on my toes.Brody stole my heart and this book will definitely be going on my top favorites list!!

As a little intro, the heroine is a single mom with two little twin girls, and the hero is a famous hockey player (but she doesn’t know that) and when a storm strands him at the Inn she runs with her mom and he has to stay a few days…. ok, an

”I don’t know what I was expecting when I knocked on the door to this inn, maybe a little old cat lady or a family of cannibals in the woods? Whatever it was, it definitely wasn’t her. A pint-sized little cutie whose sparking green eyes nearly knocked me on my ass.” - Brody

4.5 stars! Twinkies *sigh*

Room for You is of those reads that knocked me by surprise. I had a feeling I'd like it from the moment I came across it, but what I hadn't expected was how much I would end up loving it. And for me, those are the stories that remain with me forever.

So much of this novel is not my normal read. Honestly, I never would have picked it up, but there was something I can't explain that drew me in from the minute I looked at the book and read the blurb. It felt different to me

This was a nice read. Brody and Kacie meet and there is an instant attraction. She is a single mom with twin girls, running an Inn with her mother and he is a hockey player.

They have their ups and downs in the relationship, trying to juggle work, study, motherhood.

What would you do if you had a second chance at love but your first priority was no longer YOU?

Beth Ehemann’s debut novel, Room For You, delivers a fresh approach to a contemporary romance that is relevant, relatable and oh so romantic. Finally a dual point of view where the male voice is a true representation of a guy! Brody Murphy is an athlete, a mama’s boy and an alpha male all wrapped into one swoon worthy, butterfly inducing package. Kacie Jensen is a young mom whose heart and soul are wha

"Life is a sum made up of small parts, Kacie. Some are good; some are bad. You and the girls are definitely one of the good. The best good ther is and I'll fight like hell to keep you here."



"If you never give up on love, it will never give up on you."


This review will be pretty brief because there isnt' too much to say about this book. Kacie is a single young mother of twin girls. T

This was my stay up until 2 am read and boy am I not sorry. Actually, I am sorry. Sorry it took me so long to find out about this fantastic story. A friend posted, I one-clicked. It's a habit we all have, but my tbr list is huge and I try to knock the oldest ones off first. But the words hockey and second chance had me sold!

LOVED LOVED LOVED every character in this book, including the nasty trolls. Very well written and yes, now I'll fan girl until I get the next one!

Bravo, Beth!

Coming October 24....

Some people were born to write. Beth Ehemann is one of those people. Get ready, ladies. Brody Murphy is a book boyfriend you will WANT to get to know!

This story is one that will make you smile from ear to ear. Vivid, realistic characters will steal your heart---you'll feel like you know them by the time you finish the book. Awesome one-liners will make you laugh. Sweet and honest professions of love will make you swoon.

By far, one of my favorite books of the year!!!!

3 Stars!

"...sometimes, even when something terrifies you, if you just give it a chance it’s actually pretty incredible.”

Well…If I have to be honest I hoped that this one would be awesome and I was excited to start it. Sounded reeeaallly good. Unfortunately…it did not work for me. Not that it was that bad...but there was something missing.

The story:

Kacie is a single mom. She has two adorable little girls. When the father left their lives…Kacie decided to not let anyone in her heart again (just
Great debut novel! If you are looking for romance, a little angst, some steam and SWOONY boy...well go read Room for You! The characters are endearing and fun. I have to say thank goodness it is told in dualing POVs, because Brody's POV is just fantastic! I loved being in his head and talk about adding a new book boyfriend to the mix.

Kacie is a single mom of twins, helping her mother out at the Inn while attending nursing school. The last thing Kacie needs or wants is a man. In comes Brody Murph

Nicely done debut for Beth Ehemann's new Cranberry Inn series. Tender story filled with delightful characters that you'll let steal your heart. Word of warning, this first book ends with a bit of a cliffhanger -- even after you get a tease of happy for now.

For certain, the next book due for release in early 2014 is on my wishlist.
Release day is almost here!!! OMG OMG OMG. I can't wait for you guys to get your hands on this one!!!

I'm currently beta reading this and absolutely LOVING IT! I can't wait until this comes out so I can chat with people about it. Beth Ehemann's got such a gift. Readers are going to fall head over heels in love with these characters!
I liked this story, it was cute, but I did found a bit predictable at times. Liked the characters, the girls are absolutely sweet. I may pick up bk2 at a later date.
4.5 stars

This book was just what I needed. It was a breath of fresh air after a few really dark, emotional reads that I just completed. It was funny, sweet, romantic, and heartwarming even though the heroine also had some underlying emotional issues. But it was still easy to read and completely enjoyable.

Kacie is a single mother living with her own mother and helping to run an Inn. She has precocious 5 year old twins, is in nursing school, and cooks at the Inn so she has little time for entangl
I'm a memoir reader. Non-fiction is my genre of choice. So when I downloaded Room For You at the suggestion of a friend, I knew that it was going to be way out of my comfort zone. Add on top of that the fact that I've never before in my life read a romance novel of any type and I was a fish out of water. A deer caught in headlights. You catch my drift.

It was much to my surprise when I realized that I was completely wrapped up in Brody and Kacie's lives as though I knew them. I felt their excitem
I am totally 100% in love with Brody. He is my #1 book boyfriend of all time. I'm pretty sure he is the sexiest, funniest, sweetest man in any book I have ever read. I love this book. I have had this on my kindle for a while but I wanted to wait until the next book in the series came out before reading it and I am kicking myself that Brody has been on my kindle all this time - I LOVE HIM!!!!! This book was amazing - the story was fantastic. Did I mention that I am in LOVE with Brody??? Wow! YUMM ...more

Rating Clarification: 4.5 stars

I LOVED IT, it was sweet and wonderful and everything that I had wanted. I'm glad I have the second book because that ending was a bit cruel.

Room for You is a great debut forBeth Ehemann. Effortlessly blending the perfect mix of sexy and sweet, Room for You tells the story of a young mother's journey to finding love and learning to trust another with her heart.

The story is told in dual point-of-view going back and forth between Kacie and Brody. Kacie is a twenty-four year old mother of twin girls, Piper & Lucy. After her girls' dad abandoned them, a heartbroken Kacie moved in with her mother, Sophia. Sophia runs a Bed and Breakfa
When I finish an incredible book what do I say.... OHHHH EMMMM FREAKIN' GEEEE!!! Room For You by Beth Ehemann is an incredible book! This is a MUST read so make sure you have it added to your TBR! Room For You is the WHOLE package! Beautifully written and emotionally charged, this read will have you so captivated with its fabulous characters and heartwarming story that you won't want to put it down. I know this because I couldn't put it down!

The main character in the story is Kacie Jensen and sh
YES. Thank goodness for NA-ish reads that I actually liked all throughout :) Sigh... if only I have enough time to write a review (I'm taking a 10-minute break from work lol). But yes, the story flowed smoothly and somewhat naturally. And the fact that it was in dual POV didn't take away from the overall appeal of the story. I also have a weakness when there are kids involved, so that was a pleasant touch as well. It just left me wanting for MOREEEE.

I honestly don't know what to feel with that

Gosh I cannot express how much I love this story! I have since purchased all three books in the series and I love them all. I was looking for a change from traditional romance and stumbled upon this gem and I am so glad that I found it!

It is impossible not to fall in love with all characters of this book.

Kacie is a hardworking, compassionate, and intelligent single mother of adorable twin girls. She has come a long way in five years but it has not been without struggle and sacrifice. The heal
A beautifully sweet love story featuring a hot, celebrity hockey player and a single mother of twin girls, and it’s absolutely gorgeous.

When bad weather traps Brody Murphy at the small yet charming Cranberry Inn, he gets the last thing he expected when he meets Kacie. As the daughter of the owner, Kacie lives at the Inn with her adorable twin daughters, and at first glance, they are both immediately attracted. But rest assured, there is no insta-love here! They talk, they get to know each other,

Although this book was really good, it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. There were a ton of cliches that I am getting so sick of, I could yak! Memo to authors: (view spoiler)Brody IS this book!!!! In fact, if not for him, this would have been a 3-star read for me, at best. He's well written, animated, unique, funny, personable, and any reader
Before i even begin let me say thank you to Mrs. Ehemann. For #1: This cover, holy lady boners the eye candy on this cover was BEYOND and i mean BEYOND fucktastic! So tired of seeing the same covers used over and over so this was very much welcomed. (Phew! Okay got that outta my system) Secondly and most Importantly this book, oh my goodness was the best blend of sweetness and sexy. I swear i felt their beginning and had butterflies in my stomach with every word i read.

5 ★s

I loved this book. LOVED! First, the story, itself, really wasn't anything new but did I care? Not one bit. It was written well and I absolutely loved the characters. It was sweet and I think I fell in love with Brody just a little bit. This book was just a breath of fresh air. I read this in one sitting, couldn't put it down. The characters were easy to relate to and you felt like you knew them.

5 stars because I have absolutley no complaints. Not a single one. Honestly, I can't believe th
Very sweet story. Not much angst, but what there is, it is wrapped up fairly quickly.

Brady is hot, Kaycie is sweet as a single mom they really belong together.

This book does have a cliffhanger though, but I felt that it was pretty clear in this book that these two are going to end up together, and even though I liked the book not much was happening. It was pretty "happy" so I might hold off on the 2nd part until I am in need of a fluffy happy read.
