I usually like reading books where there is some angst and anxiety in which direction it all goes, and cause in me a lot of emotion. But here it frustrated me to the point that I could not catch contact with any of the characters, and finished properl ...more
I just wanted to reach into the book and slap her round the face with a wet kipper!
I loved Luke, Haven and Jake. The banter between them all was good and the first part (Calling Me) was a 5 star for me. Then I just kept wanting to do this
It may just have been my hormones .... no actually it wa ...more
Louise Bay is a brand new author for me but thoroughly grabbed my attention and heart with this story. As a whole, the series flows impeccably and was very hard to put down.
The series follows Luke & Ashleigh, their intense love for one another and making a relationship for lovers after being friends for so long.
I instantly fell in love with Luke, he was perfect in every way. So s ...more

Sister's Best Friend.
However you look at it, Ashley and Luke are absolutely perfect for each other. And as soon as they both realize it, the real fun begins.
I don't know how familiar you are with Shane East, but holy moly this book is dirty and hearing his amazing voice whispering such naughty words in my ear...well, this book is a #onehandedread (if I were holding a physical book) if I've ever read/heard one.
Super hot, fun, flirty, and one of those reads you just can't put ...more
I absolutely loved this friends-to-lovers, best friend's brother story!

Distancing herself from him, dating a good man, and skipping Sunday family dinners. Ashleigh's boyfriend, Richard is a good man - doctor, good looking, adores her, and treats her well.

I absolutely love this series, from the moment that I began book 1, and throughout the series, I was totally hooked. I have just been so captivated by everything, the plot, the characters, the love and laughs. Before I began reading book 1 Calling Me Back I had not had the opportunity to read this author, so I wasn't sure what to expect, I am so glad I was presented the opportunity to read and review this series. I have to say that I totally love the author ...more
Promised nights is well written story telling wise but I almost DNF‘ed because Ashleigh aggravated me so much.
3 stars because I really liked the book until Ashleigh had the most stupid idea for them to break up and was really hard headed about getting back together.
I had this book on my reader for a long time but it never was the right moment to get to it, in the meantime I’ve read and appreciated all Louise Bay’s works, but yesterday it seemed it called me so I turned the first page and finished it in a few hours.
Louise Bay words gave me all the comfort and the joy I did need and while I was reading I felt like I was reunites with some old lost friends.
I've really enjoyed to follow Ashleigh and Luke’s journey from friends to lovers, it was’t easy for the
Shane East and Clare Corbett narrate and do a wonderful job. I mean, you cannot go wrong with Shane East and Clare was a great as well. My first ...more
I always love Louise Bay’s novella series, and this one lives up to the rest. I was so excited to get Luke and Ashleigh’s story! I loved them as secondary characters in Jake & Haven’s books.
I was surprised that Calling Me Back actually started with Luke and Emma still together. Luke really is oblivious to the world around him. Having his world rocked by the loss of his parents so young, has made him wary of change. He wants things to simply stay as they are.
He’s com ...more

Well it's no secret that I LOVE Louise Bay!! I'm an official stalker and she knows it!

Calling Me is the series I've been anticipating and the first book does not disappoint.
You will love the dynamic between Luke and Ash, Ash and Haven, Haven and Luke... Plus the other characters that make an appearance. It's a well thought out sto ...more

He, Ash, and his sister, Haven, have been a family unit since they were kids. However, he’s never seen Ashleigh as more until….the blinkers suddenly fall off and he can’t stop looking at he ...more
A friend to lovers story with a slightly different twist. The 3-parter showcased the evolving relationship between Ashleigh and Jake with friends and family as a backdrop. I like the complicated route that they took but it did get a little bit exasperating and annoying at junctions when Ashleigh's doubts became a little too front and center...and when Jake became too "Mr. Relationship" after being the total opposite in his previous relation ...more
It took me a little longer to get through this one. The heroines inability to believe the hero loved her just as much as she loved him was a bit tedious but overall a good story. The other two books in this series were better.
As anyone who's read Louise Bay reviews on this blog knows, I love Louise Bay. As a rule, I am firmly grounded in reality, hate drama, and am generally one of those picky stick-in-the muds that get caught up in the reality of a situation. It's because I'm not a romantic. I mean, part of me must be, because I read romance novels and review them for a blog.... but for the most part I'm not. But Louise Bay books always make me forget that. They're dramatic, romantic, and I adore them to pieces.

What I love the most about this author is her ability to give us amazing love stories and lovely guys. Each time Louise release a new book is a must read to me. She always give me my romance dose with her captivating storyline and beautiful characters.
Until now there is no male characters that I haven't fell in love with. Since she introduced us to Joel from Hopeful, all the guys that came after were amazing, handsomes, sexys and great lovers. Well they are British #nuffsaid
