Like all my books in the Chasing The Dream series, More Than Once works as a stand-alone. However, I highly recommend reading More Than Exes, More Than Music, and More Than Comics first for the best experience, so that you can see how Becca and Andy (along with the entire band) have progressed throughout the series. I put Becca and Andy through A LOT in the previous books, and I'm delighted I can give them a happy ending of their own now!(less)

Surprise! A new book from me coming right before Christmas about Becca and Andy!

Here are some questions I've been getting from readers about More Than Once...

"I thought the next book in the series was Carla's book?"
That was the original plan! However, after I wrote More Than Comics, I had an idea to write a story about Becca & Andy too. I've been working on their story in between writing my other books ever since More Than Comics came out in February. It started out as a holiday novella, but

I received a copy of More than Once from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review!

More than Once is the fourth book in the Chasing the Dream series by Elizabeth Briggs, however it can be read as a standalone (that's how I've read it). This is my first book by this author, but I definitely plan to pick up more of Elizabeth Briggs's books as I really enjoyed this one! Funny and romantic but not in a too over the top way!

I really liked Becca and Andrew, our main characters, both were really

More Than Once is pretty much a second chance story. Not just in the romance department but in life as well. You see, Becca was the bassist for Villain Complex. However, her life took a downward spiral and she left the band on horrible terms. When she bumps into Andy they have a one-night stand and afterwards part ways. But five months later Andy and Becca bump into each other and the sparks reignite. Before Becca knows it she's kind of in a relationship with a guy who doesn't want a ...more

Well, she's done it again, Elizabeth Briggs has given us another couple in the Chasing the Dreams series with a fantastic story that I couldn't put down.

Becca has turned her life around, her past with Villain Complex is behind her, her bass guitars are stored in the garage, she has a job, and she's making her family happy. Except, the guy who turned her life upside down in one night is standing in front of her and she's asking him to pretend to be her boyfriend. Andrew was hurt after Tara, sure
I have a weakness for Briggs' More Than series. This installment is on par with More Than Music, better than the second and third books. I like the main characters personalities and their insecurities. My only complain is that the relationship moved too fast though and they went from 'I am not sure I can't commit yet' to 'I want to be where you are (and move across the country for you)'.

The Chasing the Dream series is one I have really enjoyed from the very beginning, so when the opportunity arrived to sign up for More Than Once I did not hesitate to put my name down.

More Than Once gives us an insight into Becca's life, and catches up with her after leaving the band. It also took me a while to make the connection between Andy and a previous book, More than Comics. Andy was the boyfriend of Tara who proposed marriage and was turned down spectacularly

Becca is trying to get her
I gave it only 2 stars, but I was a bit harsh - this story will probably work better for other readers, it just didn't do it for me. I must add that I haven't read the series, just this instalment.

When I bought the book, I was really wanting to read something about a bad girl and a good boy because the contrary is sooo common in romances. Well, I didn't count how many times those words and their opposites figured in that quick little read, but I'm certain it was too many for me ! In fact, what I

Though I liked the premise behind this book, the execution was lacking a little for me. It was missing that edge and angst that I enjoy and that would've made this book what it could've potentially been.
The characters were a little flat and one dimensional, their chemistry felt forced rather than natural and though this kind of story has been done before the only thing that made it it's own was that it happened at Christmas time, which was a let down. It should've been able to have been

Another great book in this series. We've met Andrew/Andy and Becca before, but you don't need to have read the previous books in order to enjoy this one. Andrew is sexy nerd who knows how to be dirty and Becca loves him dirty or not. We get to see all the members of Villain Complex again.

This story swept me off my feet and punched me in the feels. Did not expect this at all. So glad I gave this story a chance. Andrew and Becca are so perfect. I just made room on my book couples shelf for them. Where do I begin? Andy becoming Andrew and embracing his true self thanks to Becca’s encouragement. Loved that he was able to be both good, preppy Andy and dark, dominant Andrew at the same time. Andrew also loved that Becca was a “bad girl”, but was she really bad at all? I absolutely ...more

I really enjoyed this story. The couple was adorable! I mean his this nerdy bad boy and she's the rocker trying to be good girl it was crazy. They had this hot chemistry that you just ached for like damn. I had a few fans self moments while reading. Nerdy bad boys just might be my new thing. The plot was great, it was fast paced but not rushed, hot sex scenes but not totally over the top. I haven't read the others in this series but will

An interesting read. I have decided, since in one of my updates I wondered if I liked sweet and caring guys or dominating and controlling. I think I like sweet guys but occasionally the controlling type. And Andrew West was both.

We go through an emotional journey with both Becca and Andrew. Becca was a rockstar who got drunk and made some very bad decisions because of it. Which basically ruined her career, life and reputation. She now wants to turn her life around and be the good girl who

I am seriously addicted to this series!

This book is yet another delicious read.

At first I was a bit hesitant to pick this one up. Becca was a difficult character in the previous books, and Andy somewhat bland.

I didn't need to fear though. Becca and Andy/Andrew together make sparks fly. Becca is trying to be the good girl her parents want her to be, but is failing miserably. then she meets Andrew again and things get interesting.

The chemistry between the two is great, and I loved how Andrew likes

Good read

New author for me. I'm going to look into more books by this author.

I enjoyed this book, it's was sweet, sexy with just a small amount of angst. Great read with hot scenes, and a sweet love story

So I think the author just kind of pushed it too far with the whole good vs. bad stuff going on. Otherwise this was quite entertaining.

Elizabeth Briggs' Chasing the Dream series is always full of surprises! She gives readers what they want and I love that. This book is one for the fans of the series, those who long for the secondary characters to get their happily ever after. In this story, we see Andrew and Becca's story. This one starts in More than Comics where we get a glimpse of something happening between these two but not much concrete. When I started reading this one, I did not realize that this was about those same two ...more

Big thanks to Victory Editing and NetGalley for an ARC copy for review.

This is my first time reading from Elizabeth Briggs novel and it certainly won't be my last. I really enjoyed this book a lot and it makes me even more excited that this is a series. There were a few characters from the previous books, who were unfamiliar to me that made appearances, which only made me more intrigued to know their stories. I definitely need to catch up for sure.

I always enjoy reading a new book from Elizabeth Briggs and More Than Once is no exception. It's the perfect winter holiday read, with the majority of the story happening around Christmas and New Years.

More Than Once is a wonderful book about second chances. That's really the big theme for both characters, with Becca trying to find her place in life and Andrew trying to move past his fear of rejection. I liked seeing both these characters transform and become better versions of themselves,

Super cute. I was apprehensive because I didn't like Becca or Andy in the previous books, but they were much more fleshed out here and I thoroughly enjoyed them. I could have used more sex scenes (the last half of the book didn't have any) but overall, I liked this book a lot.

Favorite Scenes:
Andrew: "I still want to take things slow and see what happens, but I'm not going to pretend I can keep things casual with you. I want to take you on more dates, to fancy restaurants and movie theaters and little hole-in-the-wall places no one knows about. I want to take you back to my place at the end of each date and make love to you for hours. I want to be the guy you exchange presents with and take home to meet your parents."

My first problem with this is calling it a "standalone" romance in the blurb. Yes, many series have entries that can be read as standalones, or in any order. I had read the first of this series quite a while back, and I wasn't worried too much about skipping past #2 + 3 when I found this one on sale.

But this is not, at all, a standalone. If I hadn't read #1, I'd be completely lost. It was nice to see a minor character come back and get her redemption novel, basically, because she was such a brat

I read this as a break from my exams because it was free and I needed to get away from stiff, dry academic papers. I wasn't disappointing. The story alternates between the male and female POVs for each chapter and I thoroughly enjoyed both their perspectives.

I loved how they were both flawed and relatable - Becca is a 'bad girl'; making terrible life choices and being the 'mean girl' and cause of issue in the previous books (had no idea this was the

This is my second time reading a book by Elizabeth Briggs in the Chasing the Dream series and I enjoyed this book as much as the I did the previous book. I loved Andrew's character because he was the perfect combination on a good and bad boy, but it did annoy me when he kept on giving Becca mixed signals. Becca's character was of a bad girl who was trying to put her life right and I really enjoyed the fact that she learnt from her mistakes and was not afraid to admit them.
