I throughly enjoyed the process of beta reading this wonderful story.

Without saying too much Love Shots is a great debut book by Sidonia Rose. The premise of the story is roughly about someone finding their voice and learning how to move forward. With doing so she must overcome certain obstacles that have stunted her growth into womanhood and interpresonal relationships in her young adult life; and those obstacles that she must overcome are easier said than done.

I cannot wait for the release of

A good read by a debut author. I especially loved the relationship between the siblings. Looking forward to the next book as there are still so many unanswered questions.

****ARC REVIEW****

When we least expect it, life has a way of bringing the people we need most into it.

Kyle Pierce has closed her heart and locked it down tight. After a horrible ending to her first ever relationship, she went down the deep end. Vowing to never ever put herself back into that dark place, nor her family. She is focused on school and dating will come at a later date, hopefully.

When it's her time to find a new tenet for the house her and her siblings live in, Kyle accepts Nick as th

Love Shots is one of those stories where you start reading it and you can't put it down. First off I have to say that I love the cover. I love taking photos and reading this book made me want winter to be done so I can go out and take pictures.

Kyle has everything straight in her head. She is looking for the perfect boyfriend which she has in Lance Makin. She is the head cheerleader and he is the star Quarter Back for the football team. What else could a girl ask for right? Well it is there senio

I was given the chance to read Love Shots in exchange for an honest review, I was also asked not to give away any spoilers, so here goes;

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, from the first page it sucked me in, and if I didn't have work I would have not put it down..

where to start with Kyle, I thought she was a strong young women who made a couple of bad decisions and they are haunting her. she' letting them dictate her future decisions.

My first thoughts of Nick were that he is a little odd

Well I was lucky to be given the chance to read early for review. This is a first time author and know how hard she has worked to bring her dream to life. So with no spoilers I can say once I started reading I was drawn to the main character Kyle. Feeling like she is always paying for a mistake that was seen by family and friends as a act of intention. Learning she is strong is a surprise to her and everyone around. And Nick, well he is determined. Yes there is a cliffhanger, see there are many ...more

Kyle was a gir that thought in High School she had it all....good family, awesome brothers, great friends and the high school quarterback as a boyfriend, Lance. Things were fantastic !! College wasn't going to be a problem either. She would live in ahouse with her brothers near campus and Lance would go to the college next tp hers, so seeing him wasn't a she thought. They would see each other on weekends but once they didn't see each other one weekend, one weekend turned into two and ...more

Love Shots is the combination of sweetness and tragedy..

So much sadness and so much waste...

Kyle is such a strong young woman, who has survived so much...The tragedy of that one night, the loss of her friends and boyfriend, the loss of trust and respect from her family..But she still tries to see the good in them..She still tries to understand them and give excuses for them..

Personally,I'm not wired like that..I can see where her family comes from and why they don't believe her..But I can't unde

This book was awesome! New ideas, not a rehashed story. Loved the characters, very real and relate able!
Love Shots started off hot and heavy. I was really liking the progression of the story and enjoying Kyle and Nick's characters. As Kyle's past was revealed, more things about her current dating status made sense.
I got a bit of a pushy vibe from Nick though, and although I know he was interested in Kyle and meant well, it would bother me if I were her. Also, she kept being adamant about them being "just friends" and yet in many ways was sending mixed signals his way. I just wanted her to come ou

I want to first say that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the covers of this book and that alone is the reason I decided to read it. Being able to personally connect to the character Kyle Pierce is what made me fall in love with her story. In my opinion, the only downfall to these books is how difficult they could be to understand sometimes. What I mean by that is I would sometimes have to reread certain passages to understand what was happening or being said. Other than that I would say that this book is grea ...more

Kyle went through some rough experiences her freshman year in college that prevented her from attempting to date anyone until she is finished with her education. She also has three brothers who are very close to her and very over-protective. This year they have a new housemate named Nick, who is the first person to make Kyle reconsider and really think about her no dating policy. Nick is attracted to Kyle and makes it clear that he will be her friend if she insists, but would really like to be m ...more

This story started off a little slow for me and at times the dialogue was a little stiff, making it almost seem forced. The further I read the more interesting and natural the story became. I loved the brothers and roommates in their own ways but I had a particular fondness for George and the prank wars between him and Kyle. Dean seemed like he was just trying to look out for Kyle but in doing so he didn't leave a lot of room for her to make her own decisions and I think it was actually

Confident, Strong, Funny, loved and yet lonely Kyle has her plan for her future and is ticking to it no matter what. What do those plans include? Graduating college, working family and studying. Notice I didn't include dating, that is her number one rule...NO DATING period. Well that is until Nicholas Richards walks into her life wanting to rent one of the rooms in her house. Yeah she could feel it the moment she opened the door he would break her resolve eventually.

I was gifted a copy of Love Shots recently. I slowly got dragged into the story. By the end I couldn't wait for the good feeling Happily Ever After. What I got was a cliffhanger. I didn't really worry about it since this book was published in November 2014. Guess what--no second book. I searched for info and only found out that Proof was supposed to be published in 2015. So now I wait and hope that she writes the second book.

I stumbled across Sidonia Rose at an author's event in my area. After a fantastic discussion, I walked away empty handed, made it two tables down and almost kicked myself for not buying this. I went back and got both of her books, made it home and cracked open this book.

I was NOT disappointed at all. Okay, I lied, I was disappointed when I ran out of pages and HAD to have more story. I'm still mostly patiently waiting for the next book to come out. Mostly. Kind-of.

Dreamer talks books' view point :)

Coming into your own is hard with an older brother that is trying to control your life and trying to stay on course, to top that off a secret in your past that you are trying to forget.
Kyle has a no dating law that she adopted after a bad night years ago. Things was going great until she met that one person that will not talk no for answer, Nick. But, life is not that simple because big brother is not having it and what dark secret is Nick hiding?

Ugh! I need the next book now, :)
What a great book. I had the pleasure to met Sidonia Rose at an author signing. She is such a sweet person. And funny too! She told me about the book, as soon as I left the signing, I downloaded and started reading.
There were many times I wanted to slap Kyle. But towards the end I wanted to hug her. I love these type of books that pulls emotions out of you.
I don't even know what to say about Kyle and Nick. Kyle fights her attraction for Nick most of the books.

I loved the banter and pranks that Kyle and George go back and forth with .. really had me cracking up .. Nick and Kyle's relationship appears outwardly normal .. but several things are not adding up .. Kyle questions things to herself but never openly questions others due to her past .. Will she get her answers? Will her and Nick have their own HEA or will they be over almost as soon as they're getting started? I can't wait for the next installment

Hmmm not sure where i am sitting with this one, I am rather pissed off at the ending...I had no idea it was going to be part of a series and with a cliffhanger to boot. I would have waited to read it had I known. Full review to come on the 3rd of April.

What a sweet story. Watching kyle struggle against Nick and what her heart deserves is like sitting on pins and needles. Nick proves that chivalry is not dead. When everything seems to be going great Kyle's past shows up and threatens to ruin everything
