*** I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review. ***

This is such a great book. A 35 year old divorced woman trying to discover herself and find love too. It is sweet and a little bit sad. It is the first book in the series and I can not wait for the next one.

The characters in this book are very easy to connect with and the storyline is easy to follow. It is fast paced and flows smoothly. It will draw emotion from you at appropriate times and it will get you a little hit

I don't know where my review went for this book. I read this book in a day, and immediately messaged Ella for the next installment. This was the first book by Ella, and it gives readers an look at the stories to come. Keep an eye out for Ella's next books, because they are going to be epic.

I adored this book. The ending of Sky Watcher had me on the edge of my seat. The emotional roller coaster that Ella puts you through is both exciting and heart stopping. I had been not so patient

Loved it. This was a refreshingly good read that had me drawn in from the beginning. The characters were great. I was smiling at Allison's personal thoughts. The love story was amazing, and I CAN'T wait for book 2. Definitely a must read for anyone who has had to start over in life!!!

Great Ending, amazing story and I am so glad I read this. Ella does a great job, and she really ended this story out well. A must read.

Sky Watcher Review

35 year old Allison Singleton is recently divorced and unemployed. She has moved away from her married life and back to where her sister lives. She’s trying the dating thing, but it just hasn’t been going well. Unfortunately at her age she can’t be too picky.
Her sister sets her up on a hot date with Gavin McDermott who is a hunk of a man that works with her sister’s husband at a law firm. Gavin actually ends up offering her a job that will ultimately change her love life

I LOVED this book!! Any book that has me throwing my phone and cussing at fictional characters is a testament to great writing. And when it ends with the perfect HEA that I had only dreamed and hoped of occurring, it only makes it better.

Allison is divorced and has a sad outlook on the hopes of ever finding love again at the age of 35. When she's set up with a handsome successful man her age named Gavin, things start looking up. He offers her a job on a chicken farm to help out his widowed mothe

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I adore this book. I guess I'll start there. Sky Watcher is a quick, light-hearted read that tugs on a few heart strings along the way.

Allison is rebuilding her life and learning what she wants for herself when she meets Gavin. Gavin is "ideal", but not the person who makes her soul sing. Oh no. That job is reserved for someone else but the road to him is anything but easy. It is, however, a lot of fun to read about.

Love beneath the Stars!!! Allison is 35, divorced from a marriage that lacked real love or any real passion, and she is not sure what she needs to do now or how to move forward with her life. She goes on one date with handsome rich Gavin, who tells her about his mother's farm. He hires her to work there. It is a beautiful Alabama country home and Allison is thrilled. The peaceful environment is just what she needs. Then she meets the younger brother, Luke and everything changes. Luke is sweet, s ...more

I absolutely loved this book. It has you hooked from the first page. If you like books with more story than sex scene (but a bit a smut) then you will love this. The only downer for me is that it is in two parts!! Ella is definitely now a favourite author for me xxx

This series intrigues me! This novella is the introduction of Allison, Luke, and Gavin. It feels almost like the start of a love triangle. Allison has a blind date with Gavin who is her age, but there isn't the spark of chemistry for her. Gavin helps her secure a job at his family egg farm where she meets and works directly with Gavin's younger brother, Luke. Chemistry. Fireworks. But Luke harbors a big secret that ultimately rips them apart. This novella ends with a cliffhanger and prepares you ...more

Page turner! Could not stop until I finished. I fell in love with Allison and wanted her to be as happy as she did. The author gives you such a close sense of each person, that I felt towards them as she wanted me to. Cannot wait for the next book!

After reading the synopsis of this book, I thought to myself, great another rich guy gives a girl a job as his special assistant. Boy was I wrong! This book is so much more than that, and that was not the job she was given.

The book follows the story of Allison as she is putting her life back together after her divorce. I immediately liked her character for her boldness and the fact that she wasn't another twenty something who didn't know herself. Her sister sets her up on a blind date where she

A good novella that leaves you wanting the next book. Fast paced and an easy read that's both lighthearted and sad in parts.
While Gavin and Luke obviously have brotherly rivalry issues I don't exactly agree with others that Gavin's an ass. Being this book didn't go into detail on their problems I'm reserving judgment.
I really enjoyed this story and can't wait to read the second part. Allison and Luke's story is sweet and I loved how they connected under the stars. I'm a big star gazer so I com

I loved this book! Allison is 35 and finds herself having to start over in life after her divorce. As a 36 year old, I could completely relate to everything Allison was feeling and thinking. Reading about her inner struggle with how she feels about Gavin (who is her age and someone she "should" fall for) and how she feels for Gavin's much younger brother, Luke. Luke is 25, and even though Allison keeps reminding herself that he is too young for her, she keeps finding herself drawn to him in a wa ...more

This is a mild erotic romance, that follows the cliched and well trodden paths of romance books. There is nothing that is unexpected, no plot twists, or surprises. With the only difference being that the book ends before the story is finished. It is a short read of about an hour and a half. The characters are not well developed and come across as flat an unrealistic. The grammar, punctuation, spelling, and writing style all need work. The prose tends toward the passive, as well as repeating the ...more

I absolutely LOVED this book! This story is an roller coaster of emotions. There were parts in the book where I just wanted to scream at Allison to kiss him and to tell him how she really feels! Allison is just coming out of divorce and doesn't know if she will find her happiness again. That is until she goes on a date with Gavin, who is a lawyer. By the end of the date, he has offered her a job at his family's farm and she accepts hoping she can change the direction of her life. M

I love finding new authors. Ella's book Sky Watcher took me on a ride that made my heart so full and happy and then bam cracked and wondering what in the heck happened!

"After a while we sit motionless, listening to each other breathe as the silence fills the room. It is not awkward, but refreshing. It comforts me, knowing I could lie here forever." Aww how could you not fall in love with this this sentence.

"Having never felt anything so spellbinding".
I love that the feelings are so descriptive

Sky Watcher is a really pleasant love story. This was a really easy read and I bought into Allison's situation quite quickly. I can understand her dilemma. Luke sounds hot and Gavin appears to be a bit shallow. However, this works well so that the reader is cheering on Allison and Luke as a couple right from the start.

Whilst the plot is a little predictable at times, this is a really nice book to read. Emerson harnesses the importance of family, and that a

At 35, divorced and now set up on the umpteenth blind date, Allison meets Gavin. Gavin catches her interest enough not to use the "I have an emergency" call and need to leave. After getting her call, Gavin surprises her by offering her a job to help out his mom and little brother at the family farm. Not what she was expecting, but thinking this could be a way to have a fresh start from her current life.

Allison fights her attraction to Luke because he is younger and the bother of the man her sister is trying to set her up with. Just as she allows herself to fall she finds out Luke is trying to get back at his brother for something he did years ago.

Sky Watcher is my first book by Ella Emerson, and I really enjoyed it.

Allison is starting over at 35 after her husband leaves. She's afraid to jump back into the dating scene at her age. When she's set up on a blind date with an hot attorney Gavin McDermott, she wonders if he's what she's looking for. He ends up offering her a job helping his mother out, so she decides to move to his mother's chicken farm. Will Allison find herself, and maybe love?

I loved this book so much, I devoured it in one

This book is such a CUTE EFFIN' READ! I love the fact that Allison feels like a REAL person. She is hesitant to jump into anything as opposed to just pretending she is recently divorced. Gavin came across as a narcissistic asshat so i am unbelievably happy. My only gripe is the insta-love she and Luke have. It really urks me. Give me super attraction, give me I care more then I should a this point. Give me butterflies and stars whenever they see each other. Just don't give me love THAT quickly. ...more

Wow. This novella is full on from the get go. I love a story that is fast paced. Allison is trying to get her life back on track after falling out of love with her husband and finally getting divorced. She moves in with her sister but finds it hard to get her life in order. Then a blind date set up by her brother in law gives her a push in the right direction. To start over again in a strange place would be hard but no, Allison takes it on with a smile.

I started reading this, thinking it was going to be the typical love triangle between Luke "Sky Watcher", Allison and Luke's brother, Gavin. The story was so much more and Emerson was great at connecting the characters and building on their relationships, not just with Allison and the McDermott brothers, but the relationship between the brothers, as well as the family backstories for each. It makes you wonder who is perfect for Allison, if either one actually is, and I can't wait for the second ...more

Recently divorced, Allison has yet to decide what she is looking for as she embarks on next chapter of her life. She re-enters the dating world and starts a new job, second guessing her own motives and feelings along the way, as well as those of the two hot new men in her life. This is a light and an enjoyable romance, with a touch of humor – the kind of book you finish in a single sitting.

Note: The steamier scenes in this romance are explicit and might be considered unsuitable for some audience
