Seal of Approval was a great story. Extremely well written and very engaging. I loved Ethan and Kristin. His mother on the other hand. Wow! What a piece of work.

My only concern was there was so much going on that it seemed a bit rushed at times. With everything this family went through, it really should have been twice as long.

Despite the fact it felt rushed at times, it really was an enjoyable read and I will certainly be checking out other books by this author.

Seal of Approval is another amazing book by Sarah J. Brooks and Lynn Faye!!! You are hooked from the very first page of the prologue and you can't stop reading until you reach the conclusion of the story on the very last page.

Wow! So much packed into this book, I'm not sure where to start. Full of action, suspense, good and evil, and the love that will bring it all together, this book will have you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. The author has created a tale that will have your head spinning and your heart thumping, with a good dose of fear for the victim, and plenty of disgust and contempt for the woman that reeks havoc in her life. This book gives new meaning to the "second chance" theory, as Krist ...more

What a fantastic book that has definitely gotten my Seal of Approval. The characters are amazing and the story line is intense, flirty and sexy all wrapped up into one. The way that Kristen's mother-in-law comes after her for every little thing is sad and frightening all wrapped up in one. The things this lady comes up with is just plain scary. After dealing with her late husband, Andrew, and his secrets, she was hoping she'd be able to lead a quiet life, but Helen has other plans. When Ethan co ...more

Let's just start out with THE AMAZING COVER! I mean WOW! This story features Kristen Broderick and Ethan Brody. This is a story that had too many threads going every which way. Kristen and Ethan were perfect together and I did like the base story line, especially the sizzle but it needed to be polished a bit more. When did they have a chance to really fall in love? When Hailey came back to Kristen she faded from the story. What happened to her? I wish the characters would have made up t

This was an in-depth and enjoyable story the characters were an interesting bunch and it made their story all the more enticing, a woman who is getting her life destroyed by her mother in-law and her. brother in-law may be the only person she can turn to, only problem is she hates him. It's an interesting and different premise and makes the book all that more entertaining. I love books that keep you wrapped up in the plot.

Can we talk EVIL MOTHER-IN-LAW!!? If you look it up in the dictionary I do believe the definition will say HELEN!

Kristen was her favorite son, Andrew's, widow. Helen blamed her for his death and went way overboard to punish her for it, including trying get custody of Kristen's daughter.
When her other son, Ethan, backed up Kristen the gloves really disappeared!
Good story filled with violence, vitriol, deceit, forgiveness, and love. Everything you need, including a few sharp turns.

I enjoyed this book. I had a different idea in my mind of what this story was going to be like and was pleasantly surprised by what it turned out to be. There was lots of suspense and drama in Seal of Approval. Helen is one crazy mother in law. I couldn't believe how crafty she was. I'm so thankful my mother in law is nothing like this woman. Lol. I loved how protective and loving Ethan was to Kristen. How stood by her side through all the craziness. I also loved how compassionate and loyal Kris ...more

Incredible Story

If possible I would give this story a higher rating than five star. A well written storyline. Fantastic writing. Great romance, with hot sex as well as the mystery. What more could you want. Ethan and Kristen had chemistry off the charts. I could not put it down. It drew me in front first few pages and held on til the end. I was enraptured. What a mother-in-law. I was so drawn into the story I was ready to string her up.

I think this is the first book I have read by this author,

This book had some twists and turns that I wasn't sure exactly how it was going to go. I don't want to give away some of the book so I'll just say the characters, most of them anyway I loved!!! Andrew has done some crazy things, Kristen is even crazier for standing by him but Ethan, yum!!! Who wouldn't fall in love with him?? The book kept me entertained and the pages just kept turning for me. Almost finished it in one sitting. ...more

I don't know what I was expecting, but that wasn't it. This book was better than I initially thought it was going to be. It pulled me in from the first page, I couldn't put it down until I read the last page. I figured out Andrew's secret fairly quickly.. Kristen and Ethan were clearly meant to be together.

Just ok

The story line e was ok, but the writing was extremely choppy. It was a back and forth had to really pay attention to keep your mind where it needed to be to keep up. May have been better in character pov. I did like the idea of the sorry thoug, I must think it could have been executed a lot better.
