And what a night ! When Not quite clear ended, we were left with major cliffhangers : what was going to happen to our familiar bunch of friends and family ? Who was going to go to jail ? How could they prevent it ? Will they be able to defeat the evil Middletons ? And what about Beau and Gracie ? That's a lot of questions, not answered there, but it kept me biting my nails anyway. Like in the previous novella in that series, we can find out about what several characters are thinking and reacting ...more

Totally love this series!

Another brilliant book by Lyla Payne. You've got to read the series from the beginning, it won't make a huge amount of sense otherwise. Fantastic storyline and characters, once you start a book, you won't be able to put it down and it's finished!! Highly recommend!

A quick read that bridges books 5 & 6. I enjoyed it as an appetizer until I can get to the next book which ended in the usual exciting cliffhanger.

Lyla Knows What We Need!

The end of Not Quite Clear was intense, and I was left aching at the thought of what Gracie and Beau were feeling, thinking … needing. The ending was as it should be, but the ache in my heart for them was intense. Lyla knew we’d need something to soothe our souls, and Quite Precarious was PERFECT for that.

The characters she shares POVs from were absolutely perfect. I felt like was able to step into their shoes and see the story from a different perspective. I loved it en

This novella really adds depth to an all ready amazing series, and gives insight into supporting characters that a first person novel from Gracie's point of view often lacks. This is a must read to really understand where the people around Gracie are coming from, and how their lives are impacted by the insanity and chaos that is a part of being in the life of Gracie Harper! ...more

I love these character POVs novellas. They give you in site into your favorite characters! Gracie, Beau, and others had a lot on their mind when we left the last book. Lyla loves to leave little cliff hangers and these novellas ease you off the edge a little bit. The Lowcountry series is fantastic, you can't help on getting hooked! ...more

Twists on the story through different viewpoints. This filled gaps in the storyline. Funny and sad at the same time. Last book please!

Waaaay to short. I liked that each chapter concentrated on a different character, but it left more questions that answers. On to the next one.

I've been publishing New Adult romance novels for a little over a year, starting with Broken at Love and continuing with the rest of the Whitman University series.
