(Lost & Found #2)

Ariana Andrews is innocent and pure, for the most part. She’s all about the rules. Rules are good. Rules prevent you from behaving recklessly. Keep you from making irreversible mistakes. Like sleeping with someone you shouldn’t.

Caleb Carlisle is sinful and immoral, for the most part. Notorious playboy, charmer, manwhore. But with Ariana, he’s fiercely protective and comp

This was decent read full of predictable cliches. The author did a great job keeping me engrossed to the end. Say Love begins three years before the main characters got together. They had broken up and the reason for that was the continuing mystery that kept me reading. As I narrowed in close to the reveal I kept praying to myself: (view spoiler) I was disappointed and was ...more

'First time' stories can be tricky, but Stacey does a wonderful job of describing 'it' realistically with just the right amount of tension and humor, and only made me love the characters more as they forged their way through the emotions that have led to their relationship taking this physical turn as well as those that follow. Believable chemistry between these characters make this romance a truly sweet treat.

I received this book as an ARC. This was the first book I've read from CL and it was great! I'm going to be going back and reading the first book in the Say Love set next.

I loved the characters and their banter. They had great chemistry. I was a bit lost the first few chapters and worried the book wouldn't be for me, but once the author starts back at the beginning of the characters story, that is when it takes off. There is a scene in the hospital that is a bit unrealistic concerning HIPPA law

I voluntarily received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Say Love is the first book of CL Stacey's I've read and I enjoyed it so much I will be reading more of her work. This is the second book in her Lost and Found series, but it can be read as a standalone. Say Love combines almost all of my favorite things into one emotional and beautiful story: best friend's little sister, second-chance romance, best friends to lovers, steamy sex scenes, light-hearted funny moments, heavy

"Love. It’s just a word… a four-letter word. You’d think four letters would be harmless, but they hold so much weight. I fear them, and all that comes with them."

OH. MY HEART!!!! 😭
I was pretty sure before, but now I know.... I'm so in love with Caleb! This man has me feeling ALL the feels! Crying ALL the cries! Swooning ALL the swoons!!! I fell for him in Left Behind. I really wanted to read his story! C.L. Stacey didn't disappoint me at all!! There was suspense... And a couple crazy twists. Cha

Second chance romances are always so beautiful, they are full of angst, tears and tons of heartache but getting to the ending especially Happily Ever After, make it worth it. Stacey did exceptional with Left Behind, but her story in Say Love is one full of crazy twists, turns, psychos and most importantly LOVE! This book was so intense because your two main characters, Caleb and Ari have been thrown so many crazy things there way, you're not sure whats going to happen.

Say Love is a crazy good roller-coaster ride with all the feels!! Caleb and Ari have known each other for years thanks to Ari's big brother Ayrn. Caleb had always been protective of Ari and would do anything for her. They reunited after a few years apart. The more time they spent together the blurrier the lines and emotions got. There relationship was taboo for obvious best friends little sister genres reasons, but this one was also filled with twists and turns that kept me turning the page tryi ...more

Romance, thrills, chills, heart wrenching moments where everything is enhanced double from the previous story. This second book did not disappoint! From the connection to the first story, Caleb and Ariana's beginning is just captivating with a hint of allurement that has unexpected characters brought in to create an amazing story!

This book was just as amazing as the first book in the Lost & Found series. This story continues with following bad boy Caleb as he tells his story, why he is like he is. There is so much going on in this book, it is necessary to stop and breath so you do not miss one thing. This book takes you through the relationship of Caleb with his best friends little sister Ari, the connection is forbidden but it will not go way. What happens when there are so many roadblocks standing in the way of happine ...more

This is the first book I've read by CL Stacey and I really enjoyed it. It started off a little slow because I absolutely could not stand Caleb. I thought he was the biggest douche bag but as the book progressed I found myself unable to put it down.
This is the type of book I normally go for, so I was expecting to have an idea of what would happen next and I was pleasantly surprised at how unpredictable the story was.
This very well written and I loved getting the perspective of multiple characte

This story had all the feels. Caleb gets a second chance with Ari and it's sweet and romantic, but it's bumpy and emotional along the way. Other people have come into their lives during their time apart and that creates obstacles for them. At the same time, they have a lot of supporting friends and family who are looking out for them.

When I heard about this, it said it was a stand-alone read, but as I was reading it, I felt like I was missing a lot of backstory for other characters like Lexi an

What an intriguing read by CL Stacey. This was the first book I had read by this author. A story about first loves and love rediscovered. The story deals with past and present. The reader is introduced to Ari and Caleb and their trials and tribulations to overcome obstacles in their relationship. Throughout the course of the story I was on an emotional roller coaster. I found myself at times wanting to kick Caleb and Ari in the behind to share their true feelings with each other and then cheerin ...more

Great read

Caleb is my favorite out of the series. He us cocky and knows how handsome he is. He is so sweet and loyal to "his one " true love. Aria was a bit younger than Caleb , she was very naive at first. She cared way to much about how others would see her. I was so happy she found "her one" . They both had to learn to trust to make it all work out . So much more than your typical friends to lovers story.

I loved this book! It had everything I like, kept my attention for two days while I read it cover to cover (even during two meals at restaurants with my kid and husband, I read it every time I had a minute to read!) and I'm definitely interested in this author's other works. Just everything resonated with me, the story, the unapologetic man whore, the humor, the happy ending plus enough of a plot to not be ONLY about the road to HEA, it was just great.

This was a cute second chance romance book. It was well written but at some points was a little slow. We first met Caleb, the notorious playboy, in the first book of this series and I enjoyed reading more about him. I liked how protective Caleb was of Ari. They make such a cute couple. 4 stars

I originally read this book on fictionpress a year or two ago and I fell in love with Ariana, Caleb, Ayli and everyone else. When I saw that the author had published the book I followed my first instinct and bought, excited to support her in any way I could and still be able to read a book I absolutely adored. However, I began reading the published version and realised the character's weren't the same, the story wasn't the same and I ended up rather disappointed on account of wanting to read the ...more
