This book completely took me by surprise!

This novella features Pace, a character from Andrea Randall’s November Blue series, and Stephanie, a characters from Michelle Pace’s The Sound Wave Series. Both series I have yet to read.

Pace is an attractive, ambitious, confident lawyer who commands attention when he walks into a room. He’s extremely picky when it comes to women so he mostly just has casual flings since no one has brought him close to wanting to settle down. One night, he’s with a date

I am a huge fan of Fury and I was very fortunate to have been a beta reader for both Rage and Something's Come Up. I absolutely adore Steph and her snarky wit, and I fell in love with Phillip Kersey in Fury, so naturally I went into SCU with some scepticism. I've been rooting for Steph and Phillip so I didn't want to imagine her with any other man, and frankly I wasn't sure how Michelle Pace and Andrea Randall were going to be able to sell me on the idea (I'm hopelessly devoted to my Phillip)... ...more

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Giving a rat’s ass caused me issue after irritating issue for a lot of my childhood. So after my mom died, I quit caring. Gave it up for Lent and never looked back.

Once I heard that this book was in the works I could NOT WAIT to experience the melding of minds that is Michelle Pace and Andrea Randall. Through various book groups, I have come to know both the ladies over the past year. Let me tell you; they are some kick-ass chicks! Snarky, f

PACE



Stephanie



Honestly, this is my first ebony-ivory romance I have ever read. But I was curious about Pace since Ember-Bo-Adrian story.
Actually, I'd waited for Adrian's for so long, but I got Pace instead...lol.

The first 45% was quite interesting, but 45-65% was a little boring.
Maybe it's a medical discussion that bored me. Even, I admired it for the smart talking, still, I wasn't interested at Medical Science details. Too details. I'm an MD, and I got bored by medical talk

Who knew a cross over could be so much fun! Randall and Pace double the pleasure and double the fun all in one. Mix hot chocolate goodness with fiery red attitude and BOOM you get Something’s Come Up.

“You’re right. Smooth. Flawless. Still, you’re like Shortcake after she rolled around in hot peppers or something. You’re spicy. I can tell.”

A lot can happen in 24 hours…so why not fill them with hot steamy buck naked kinky sex? Right? I mean it is a no brainier.

I wasn’t so sure that “Something’s Come Up” was going to be my sort of book. I’ve never been a fan of what is usually classified as erotica, but, I figured, it’s Andrea Randall and Michelle Pace. I’ll give it a try.
I’m glad I did.
I had previously read Fury so I was familiar with Steph Brier…and she is just my kinda gal. Brash. Tells it like it is. No frills. Not your typical “love story” kinda gal. THANK GOD.

I Haven't yet read either The Blue November series or The Sound Wave series yet (they are both sitting there on my e-reader begging me to read them though) I don't think that affected Something's Come Up for me in anyway. I thought this was a great read! I really enjoyed the dynamic between Pace and Steph. They have a lust, anger, trust, love, hate thing going on that really just works The two of them have a history that makes having a future together as anything other than "friends with benefit ...more

So I loved it. This was such a "real" story with semi-flawed characters...if you can call them flawed. A small part of me wants to hate how this ended, but I can't. It was perfect. Without giving out to many spoilers, that convo is Rome is heartbreaking.

This read was a 4.5 for me :-)

First, I wanted to tell you that while I have read The November Blue Series by Andrea Randall, I have not yet read Fury by Michelle Pace and Tammy Coons (it has been on my to-read list and with my overbooked reading schedule, I just have not been able to get to it yet…. thinking now I will NEED to find the time to). As far as I can tell, you can read this book as a stand-alone, but I am sure if you are a fan of these other series, you will probably love this book al

I'm not usually a fan of erotica. Or novellas. So going into this book, I wasn't sure how much I was going to love it. But I'm a huge fan of both Andrea Randall and Michelle Pace, so of course I had to give it a shot.

Something's Come Up brings together Pace (Adrian's hunky older brother) from Andrea's November Blue series and Steph Brier from Michelle's Sound Wave series. I had read both series, but in my opinion, Something's Come Up stands alone, and it isn't necessary to have read either one

I won't be rating or formally reviewing this novella because I was unable to finish the whole thing. This is the first book by Andrea Randall I have read and I had read Fury by Michelle Pace but was unable to finish that book as well. I don't think the writing style is the reason I couldn't finish the book, because it wasn't bad....I think my problem was that the storyline and characters just didn't hook me and it all just fell flat for me. By the 56% mark I was completely bored and

Hmm.... I didn't really like it, I skipped most of the story and just read a few scenes here and there. I do like the plot but It didn't have that sentence or even a paragraph that you could hold on to and say, 'this is good' or 'this is interesting', that's why I just skipped and read a few pages just to finish the book. FOr those who've read the whole book, they might find it really good but the writing style isn't for me? anyways, I still plan on reading Andrea Randall's IN THE STILLNESS.

It didn't take long to recognize the authors writing is absolute genius! I've come across a couple of new great authors I'd have to follow and read all they've got. What a character they've crafted with Stephanie. I've never ran across a character yet who could touch her. You've got to love her but damn she can be a real pain in the ass. Then there's Pace. What a stud, plus a good guy at that. You really get to see things from his perspective and see the pull and feelings he develops for her.

4.5 stars! I was excited to read this novella because I am such a huge fan of Andrea Randall and she has yet to disappoint me. Now I can add Michelle Pace to my list of faves. This crossover story features Pace Turner from Andrea's November Blue Series and Stephanie Brier from Michelle Pace's The Sound Wave Series. It can however, be read as a stand alone and I highly recommend it.
Pace Turner is a hot beefy alpha male with a witty and charming personality. Stephanie Brier is a take-no-shit beau

This didn’t really work well for me. It was an ok story, but seemed a bit disjointed.
After a very public break up from her actor boyfriend, Stephanie ends up back with her old “Friend with Benefits” Pace Turner.
The relationship between Stephanie Brier & Carrington “Pace” Turner was purely sexual. It had nothing else going for it, apart from the “shock” element I suppose.
There were a few laughs & some sweet moments, but other than the explosive sex, it just didn’t really come together

This is how I think of this book - a little bit of cocky and a little bit of sass. Andrea Randall and Michelle Pace - what a team!!!! These two ladies, while being fabulous authors on their own, came together and put together this little ditty of a book. It's like these ladies didn't have anything to do one weekend and they just sat down with a bottle or two of wine and put this awesome read together.

Aw, man. Something's Come Up ended at an annoying place. So much is unresolved. This is more of a part 1 of a great story. I loved the black man/white woman matchup. I'm glad other authors are venturing into more diverse pairings. The cover art is beautiful...sexy, but understated. And to tell you the truth, I didn't notice they were an interracial couple until I started reading. So I was still pleasantly surprised by that. The strong characters and tease of a plot held my attention. I got confu ...more

I've not read anything by these two authors before but I think I may be hooked now.
This is a fast paced novella with characters from both these authors books. It's a standalone but it does make you wanna read more about these characters. While reading this I certainly didn't think it was written by two authors. The writing is superb.

Pace and Steph are two strong characters, flawed but lovable. I liked how the authors narrated the story, incorporating some flashbacks giving a solid background of the story. I wished it was longer though because I felt like the story kept me hanging on to something. Overall, this is a steamy read.

first of all what the hell is that ending.
second their relationship got nowhere.
this was a standalone so I'm assuming there will be no follow up to their story. I'm Pissed I expected them to at least be together at the end of make plans to be together.
