Kacie Jensen has one main priority in her life: raising her twin daughters, Lucy and Piper. Ever since her ex—the girls’ father—vanished four years ago, Kacie’s sworn to keep her head in her studies and her heart out of trouble. Moving back home to her mother’s bed-and-breakfast had seemed like the best way to start over.

But when hockey star Brody Murphy washes up on the f

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,

Room for You is my first read by Beth Ehemann and after finishing, I can't wait to read all the rest! This book was charming, romantic, and just radiated sweetness. I loved Brody, Kacie, and her Twinkies! I'm also so excited I see an Andy book and a Viper book in my future! The whole cast of characters was fantastic.

Driving home in a terrible storm isn't ideal, but Brody decides to do it one night. His truck gets stuck and he ends up at Cranberry Inn. There he meets Kacie who help

I don't know why I waited so long to read this! I FLOVED it! Okay, maybe I know why. I thought this would be a cheesy, light read. You know the kind of book I'm talking about. The one you give 3-4 stars to, the one you enjoy kind-of-ish, the one that doesn't stay with you.

I couldn't have been more wrong. "Room for You" was, first of all, not a quick read. I never bother checking the number of pages, but 359 is definitely not a short story. Secondly, it wasn't cheesy. Sure, Brody is on

Now, 4 years later Kacie has her heart closed to new relationships until she finds a good guy and role-model to her daughters. She doesn’t want to get involved with no one because she’s afraid of being hurt again.

”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

That moment when you want to repeatedly punch yourself in the face for having a book sitting on your kindle for-freaking-ever and not reading it and once you do, finding out that it's freaking awesome. Yep. That just happened.

There is NOTHING I enjoy more than a realistic, believable plot, relatable, likable characters, and authentic dialogue. Nothing cheesy. Nothing over the top. Nothing forced. Just honest believability, even in fiction. I like to see it, feel it, believe in every facet of the

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

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!

Kacie Jensen wasn't looking for love. She is a single mother of adorable twins, a nursing student, and a helper at her mom's Inn. Kacie didn't have time for love or men - or so she thought. Leave it too some handsome stranger to knock her off her feet.

Brody Murphy is perfect. He is handsome, kind, and wonderful with Kacie's twins. He is also really smitten with Kacie. Kacie is smitten too, but she is extremely hesitant. She has been down this road before and it ended in disaster. With h

Room For You had everything I needed in a contemporary romance. This first book was fabulous especially because the characters were the main focus. I loved Kacie and her two twin girls Lucy and Piper. Sophia, Kacie's mother was the owner of the Cranberry Inn and their rock. Her love and support for her daughter and her granddaughters were heartwarming.
Brody the famous hockey player did his best to woo Kacie, her girls and Me which he succeeded wonderfully although Kacie's heart had been broken

I was in the mood to read a single-parent book, so you through in a single mom with twin girls and I was really excited to start this book.

Kacie lives with her mom at an Inn they both run. Kacie has two five year girls, twins and they are her world. Kacie is a damaged person. Her dad left her when she was younger and her baby daddy wasn’t the nicest man. So this girl has a lot of hang-ups. I struggled a bit with Kacie. I loved her love for her daughters, but Kacie is straight

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!!!!

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.

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.

Brody and Kacie. I liked their story, it was well written but nothing out of the ordinary.

Kacie is a 24yo single mom raising her 5yo twin girls after her boyfriend bailed on her before their first birthday. She’s studying to be a nurse, currently residing in her mother’s inn, dreaming of independence. Not so much of love or a prince charming. Understandable after being abandoned from the two most important men in her life. First her father when she was still a child and then her boyfriend and fa

This was a great surprise to read. I bought it on a whim and really enjoyed it.

The first thing that hooked me in was that it was a second chance at love story. The other draw card was that there were cute little girls as well. I also loved that the main characters were not new adult, they had a bit of life experience already :)

Kacie has two cute little twin girls and lives with her mum at the Cranberry Inn. Her mum owns the inn so it's like a bed and breakfast place. Her boyfriend left her when

DNF at 37%.

I was a big fan of Beth Ehemann's Cement Heart but sadly, Room for You did not click for me. I had no emotional connection and in fact, actively disliked the two main characters so I was not invested in their romance.

The female protagonist is a very young, single mom of adorable twin girls who was unceremoniously dumped by her husband. Four years later, she still can't hear his name without bursting into tears and literally crying herself to sleep. Okay.

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
