If you've read Life's A Capella, you definitely need to read Our A Capella (and if you haven't, you need to do so soon!!) I was lucky enough to get Our A Capella as an ARC! I was super excited about getting more of Erin, Trent, & Shayna's story & more from Yessi Smith (even tho she likes to make me cry, as she did again in OAC!)

In OAC, we get more of their story from Trent's POV! We learn how their relationship is going 5 months in to their marriage! Erin is trying to get a better educat

Our A Cappella, is sweet Novella that follows up “Life’s A Cappella”. The story picks up right where the first left off, after Erin and Trent’s wedding. The couple is adjusting to being parents to Shayna, and married life. Erin has gone back to school and is struggling with work, home life, and studies and poor Trent is feeling left out. Still Trent is just as patient as ever with Erin, and tries t

I was lucky enough to receive this amazing novella as an ARC.
Trust me when I say it’s fabulous because it is…. I picked this book up to read and could not put it down ….
This book gives us more Trent and Erin from Trent’s POV and we finally get inside Nate’s head too…….
This is post wedding and shows how real life keeps you so busy that sometimes the romance can get lost and requires you to make extra effort to keep it alive.
This book will suck you in and keep you wanting more and more……

I loved this novella...usually, novellas fall short of offering just enough story line to pull you in, which is why I try to steer clear of them. NOT Our A is funny, sexy, and gripping.

Our A Cappella starts off five months after Erin and Trent have married. The book is written in alternating POV, from Trent, Nate, (Erin's best friend) and of course, don't forget little Shayna...the story gives us the insight of the life of the newlywed couple, and the struggles they face, trying to

In what I am realizing is typical Yessi Smith fashion, she has written another heart wrenching story that will leave its mark in your heart. This time, we get Trent and Nate's point of view and all I can say is that I want more Nate!

5 out of 5 stars

The story of Erin, Trent, and Shayna continues in this novella by Yessi Smith. This go around we get to see events unfold through the eyes of Trent, Shayna, and Nate. It was exciting being able to be in Trent’s head and see Erin through his eyes. It was refreshing to see that life is still not perfect for them, that even though they found their happy ever after they are still having to fight for it daily. I loved that he has fully stepped into the r

Yessi Smith’s Our A Cappella (OAC) picks up five months after Erin and Trent’s wedding in Life’s A Cappella (LAC). It is told from multiple POVs: Trent, Nate and Shayna. I love being able to revisit our favorite characters! We see Erin as she is struggling to balance family life with school and work. Trent, as he is trying to manage work and family and also pressing Erin for more attention in their new marriage. Nate has been spending a lot of time with Tonya and has been staying with Erin and T ...more

Yessi Smith gave sadness and joy in my heart---- at the same time.

I can't even explain all my post- feelings after Our Life's Acappella. It is so good I even tear up on this more than on the first book.

Being this a novella is so amazing. It explains life's reality in every way. For example, how marriages cannot just be a bed of roses and everybody will live a happy- ever- after. Trent and Erin's story continues with Shayna and they struggle in keeping up wit

Read Life's a Capella before you read this. You won't be disappointed. Life's a Capella was written in the female POV. This book lets us read about Trent & Nates POV- let's not forget Shayna!

I read this brilliant book in one sitting. It's a gripping read. Yessi pulled on my emotions again in this book. She really knows how to play with my heart.

This is a fantastic emotional rollercoaster of a story. Be prepared and have the tissues ready.

Cliffhanger!!!! I'll say no more.

Book 2 starts off 5 months after Book 1 – ‘Life’s A Cappella’ left off. This book is written in Trent and Nate’s POV (Nate is the brother Erin (not in blood) who you meet in book 1), Shayla also pops into the POV sometimes, but I don’t want to write too much and spoil the books for new readers.

Erin is now studying for her Master’s in Nursing, and this means she is very busy and this means she is neglecting Trent a little, which he is finding frustrating to say the least, plus the fact that they

If you were left wanting more after Life's A Capella, this novella's for you. Our A Cappella was a slight continuation of Trent and Erin's story, but was also Nate and Tonya's story. It was different from Life's A Capella in that it was told from Trent and Nate's male perspectives. The realistic dialogue as well as the real world issues helped me to identify with the characters as well as the story line in Our A Capella. There was definitely a lot of story packed into this relatively short novel ...more

Beautiful book. Picks up 5 months after the first. And it's from Trent's POV, I love male POVs. His love for his family is beautiful. I hated that he felt second to their marriage but Erin realized it and made up for it. Love, love, love Shay-she is adorable. Yessi Smith writes these books from everyone's POV and it's great. Nate ( brother and uncle ) was a big part of this novella. his character made my laugh and cry. Looking forward to more for this "family"

This novella is brilliant, it gives you that little bit more insight into Trent, Erin and Shayna's life that you've been craving since you fell in love with them in Life's A Capello. And you see the start of Nates and Tonyas story! You may need a tissue or two and it will definitely leave you CRAVING the next book!! Although Yessi Smith is cruel cos the next book isn't out until later this year :(
Definitely recommend this :) ❤

This is my second book by Yessi Smith the first being the book this one follows. This portrays a story that many people can easily relate to in one way or another. Love all of the point of view that are told.

Yessi Smith is an amazing author, with her words she is able to pull you into her story and put your emotions on a rollercoaster! Make sure to have tissue handy when reading! Yessi once again had my emotions going up and down. I could not put the book down until I had it finished, I had to know what was going to happen.

Our A Cappella continues telling the story of Trent and Erin and their daughter Shayna.

Now living together, Trent and Erin struggle to dedicate enough time to each other while also taking care of Shayna. Erin is studying hard and with Trent's job, time for themselves is in short supply. Erin is tired and Trent is frustrated and something has to give if their relationship is to survive.

Our A Capella is a novella (#1.5 of the A Capella Series)
This novella is told from Trent & Nate’s POV. Trent & Erin are now married and Trent feels like he is being put on the back burner in his wife’s priorities. Trent just wants to show his wife how much she means to him. Erin is still very stubborn, but is trying to build a better life for them as a family by continuing her education and getting her Master’s degree.

I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

As someone who really enjoyed the first book, I was excited to be able to read this one. It picks not long after the end of the first one, so it was easy to get right back into the story.

The difference in this story was it had less Erin in it, and more Trent and Nate. I did like getting to know Nate more, so it was a welcomed change.

My biggest issue in this story was the editing. Unlike the first book, it was just with typos th

This novella picks up shortly after “Life’s A Cappella” ends. Trent and Erin are now married, so we see their daily struggles; trying to juggle life as newlyweds, raising a daughter together, all while Trent works and Erin continues her schooling. Trent is feeling very left out and alone. Can they figure out how to juggle everything and find their way back to one another?

We see a lot more of Nate in this book. We see his struggles with his blossoming relationship and his life-altering discovery.

I liked that this novella was told from the male point of you. I was able to see more of Nate and Trent's points of views of situations and what they were thinking. This wasn't just about Trent and Erin but also about Nate and Tonya and I loved that! I yearned for more of their story at the end of the first book.
Trent and Erin have been married for 5 months and Erin is trying to finish her master's degree while Trent struggles to make ends meet. The story portrayed a perfect example of how life

Our A Capella is the second book in the A Capella series by Yessi Smith. When I started this book I wasn't prepared for such an emotional read. This storyline was solid with unexpected twists and turns that had me hooked from beginning to end. Loved the depth and emotion that characters had and of course the undeniable chemistry. Hated the ending...because it really left me hanging...and I am hoping for a third book to help round out the storylines. Truly loving Yessi and her style of writing!!
