3 stars!!

Hmmmm...I guess this was a cute read? I mean, there's some angst but not a whole lot plus I actually liked weirdo Beau the most. He's the one character I have hope for; the others fall in love with each other at first sight. There are a few typos and I thought Sabrina's instant love/attraction/lust for Wade was dubious considering how attached she was to Beau at the moment. Though there are two dudes mentioned in the blurb, I didn't find this to be a love triangle story.

Overall, a nice

Sabrina aka Sabra a one hit wonder singer many years ago. She is given the President position at the record company by her uncle who is sick.

She unfortunately has been tied to creepster manager Beau in some odd relationship for the past 10 years.

She is very attracted to Wade right off the bat even though she's six years older than him.

Sometimes you just need a good ole sweet and sappy love story. Full of hearts and rainbows and all of that other lovey-dovey shit.

With her uncle being sick, Sabrina has been given the position of acting president of her uncle's record label. With a new position comes a new assistant, Wade.

I didnt like Sabrina's manager/guy-she's-sleeping-with, Beau, I thought he was very manipulative. Once Wade appeared, there was no doubt who the right guy for her was.

There's a thousand words for you Sabrina. I'll say them all to you eventually.

Kate Roth has done it again! Having read a pre release copy of this book I can say without doubt that it's one to add to your TBR list. I will not do spoilers but what I can say is that once again Kate has created interesting and believable characters and I was pulled in right from the start. I had my very own cast playing the movie of the book in my mind!

So…I think it's safe to say I totally wasn't expecting that one.

Wade’s kiss had awakened her. He’d set fire to the girl of her past and from the ashes she’d become the woman she’d long denied herself to be.

Thank you Ms. Roth, you just summed up this book for me, right there in two simple sentences. Really, this book was beautifully written and it showcases all of the GOOD things that romance novels have to offer.

Sabrina is a young woman with a lot going for her. She is in her late 20s and is the head of A&R

Natural Harmony by Kate Roth was the first book I read from this author. You want to know something? I absolutely adored it! It was the perfect weekend read. I happened to dive into it on Saturday and didn’t want to come up for air. It grabbed me from the very beginning. I happened to connect with the characters right away. It also had a different feel then other books in the genre. I would say it was a pretty genuine story from the very beginning. It had a little angst which could be classified ...more

I have been a Kate Roth fan since I read her book The Low Notes last year. (Do yourselves a favor and read that one, too! it’s not to be missed!) Naturally, I was excited to check out Natural Harmony. This is her first self-published novel, and I was interested to see what kind of ride she was going to take us on. I loved the setting of this book, I don’t read a ton of office romances, so it was a nice change of pace.

I loved this story. It didn't need filled to the brink with drama to keep my attention. It was refreshing to see a woman in power, especially where she was believable enough not to have everything together or fall into her lap magically. She had things holding her back from achieving her potential and it helped to really connect with her.

At the beginning of the story, Sabrina frustrated me. She seemed like a smart woman who was b

Sabrina just wanted to be respected. She wanted people to know that she did earn her way to the top of her Uncle’s Record label, not just because she was family. She wanted them to know, that she is the best in the business at what she does, and that she deserves the title of Acting President that her Uncle has now bestowed upon her.

Sabrina never saw Wade coming, or well she did, when he came in to interview for a job as her assista

After being promoted to President of her uncle's record label, Sabrina needs an assistant ASAP. In comes Wade. A resourceful, smart and handsome man, Wade ignites in Sabrina feelings she never experienced before. Although she has been in a 'relationship' with Beau, she knows that nothing is going to come from it other than to keep living on past expectations and desires.

Neither of them pursue each other straight out, but Wade and Sabrina's attraction to each other gets the best of them

This was an interesting book, after ten years of being controlled by others Sabrina finally gets to take control of her life, only now realising what she's missed. As usual she's given no choice in the decision that triggers all this, but, over the next few months you see her start to come out of her shell and blossom.

A lot of her strength comes from her new assistant Wade, for whom she feels an instant attraction, but won't act on it because she's scared of what people will think of her.

~ I was given this book in exchange for an honest review ~

I like Kate Roth's natural way of writing a story that many people can relate to. This one asks the question of should you stay in a semi-comfortable relationship that is private and where the man has to be in total control over you (Beau)...or do you get brave and venture out with someone who really knows what love is and helps you become a confident and secure woman (Wade).
Beau is the older man who has known Sabrina since she was young

Natural Harmony by Kate Roth is the type of book that had me hooked from the very beginning, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. In my mind, one of the strongest points of the book is how well-developed the two romantic leads – Sabrina and Wade – were. They both had their own personalities, but they complimented each other. What really stood out as I read the book is the chemistry they had as well. As far as character traits, the thing I liked the most was what a strong character Sabrina was. She might ...more

This is definitely one of those books that I want to read again :) Team Wade all the way! I think I have found myself a new book boyfriend! This book was a fun read that I enjoyed throughout the whole story. It's not one of the stories that has to be filled with drama to keep you entranced, you just genuinely want to keep reading. The main character Sabrina is a breath of fresh air in a book world filled with whiny, male dependent heroines. She is a strong independent woma

Sabrina goes through a process of finding herself when she is thrown into power and Wade helps her along each and every step. He never loses hope and keeps her guessing what she thought she knew about herself.

Beau - what a total loser this guy is. I'm glad he man's up in the end, but I definitely wasn't sorry to see Sabrina tell him where to go... Finally.

Ms. Roth never fails to satisfy. Her character development is always so natural that I struggle to define when I have fallen for them, despite how invested I feel in knowing their stories. While "The Low Notes" and "Reckless Radiance" were both enjoyable and well-written, something about "Natural Harmony" was decidedly different, and in a pleasant way. I look forward to following Roth's writing--she is a truly talented storyteller.

This is the first book I have read by Kate Roth but it will not be the last! LOVED Natural Harmony! The characters were developed and the reactions to things were spot on. So many books have crazy reactions to the most basic elements, but not this one. This one felt real. The emotions felt real. And best of all I felt myself rooting for the couple. Perfect stand alone with a HEA.
