Such an emotional fun book

Quinn and Tucker are in the spotlight. She is an actress, he is a country music star. They are raising her sister's daughter because the sister has drug issues like the mom. It is a crazy world for them until a charity who helps service animals tries to get them to help them get more money. Tucker has Tourette's. He doesn't realize the value of these dogs for him until this connection. Love the ups and downs with this family. Wondeful, emotional book.

It's Always Something (A Life Won't Wait novella) by Nikki Lynn Barrett
Quinn and Tucker McGinnis are the quintessential "Famous" couple. They are so much in love, but people are speculating if they are really as happy or as much in love as they appear. Some feel it is just a matter of time before they go their separate ways, like so many other famous couples have.
All Tucker and Quinn want for Christmas is to be able to spend their first Christmas together. With their careers, health

I fell in love with this novella from the very beginning. The author pulled me in with her wonderful writing and technique. She kept my interest throughout the novel with her feisty, enchanting, and inspirational characters. Her plot line is strong and relatable.

"It's Always Something" (A life Won't Wait Novella) by Nikki Barrett. This is more of Tucker and Quinn's story.

Nikki Barrett does a great job of pulling the reader in and making the characters feel like your friends. I love Tucker more and more. He is so great! Quinn and Tucker are perfect for each other.

Quinn and Tucker have a busy schedule and on top of that it's getting close to Christmas so it makes it hard for them. They are so amazing in how they manage to have spec

Oh my gosh, I am still so in love with Tucker. He continues to make my heart go pitter-patter. As their first Christmas together rapidly approaches, Quinn and Tucker are feeling the pressure. With obligations coming at them from all angles, they barely have time to breath, much less find alone time. With all of their challenges, they find a way to sneak moments together and make sure to communicate across the miles when they can’t be together in person.

This is a great story that show

A great book by Nikki Barrett. This is one of the first books of hers that I read. I have heard that her books were good. I was not disappointed.

Once I started reading I just could not put it down. I really loved Tucker, I think he is my new book boyfriend. I think that he shows that you can overcome any disability and make something of your life. I just loved his part in the book.

Quinn seemed great for him, very sensitive and caring. If you want a great romance that will tug at you

Nikki Lynn Barrett is one of my favorite romance writers. She always comes up with characters that I always want to read more about. I love Christmas stories and this one is an awesome one. It's part of a Christmas anthology that I want to read more of. Tucker and Quinn are one of my favorite fictional couples and I hope that there will be more from them. If you haven't met Tucker and Quinn yet, read their full-length novel Queen of My Heart first! I guarantee that you will fall in love with the ...more

I fell in love with Quinn and Tucker in the first book. Tucker and Quinn are perfect together. Tucker will make you swoon. There were times the book had me in tears. Quinn and Tucker both survived bad childhoods. "It's Always Something" is the perfect title for this book because, due to their careers there was a lot of problems they had to deal as they were always in the limelight. To make matters worse Quinn ends up getting temporary custody of her niece after her sister gets arrested and agree ...more

This novella takes us back to Tucker and Quinn McGinnis, two of my favorite characters by the author.

Tucker and Quinn are taking care of Quinn's niece, Piper, and balancing their busy work lives.

Is there still enough magic left to get them through the tough times?

This was a great quick catch up to let the reader in on how Tucker and Quinn are doing!

I liked how family came first when it came to helping Piper and her mom Willow and the need to keep Willow clean

It's always something

An interesting story. Both Quinn and Tucker survived difficult childhod. They had a lot of problems to deal with since they were in the limelight because of their careers. Wasn't a fast paced story so not as attention getting as,it could be in spite of the message it was,delivering. Therefore I only gave it 3 stars

Sweet Love

It was nice to read the next chapter in Tucker and Quinn’s life together. I really hope to get more glimpse into their lives together. Well written and great evolution of the characters make this story worth reading.
