I appreciate author's attempt trying to portray this male protagonist as not a manwhore, but he still was the one.

I was very disappointed to find out at 73%!!! that he was NOT celibate after he met the heroine.

Pathetic boy tried to convince himself and the world, that he slept with OW (who even left scratches on his back) before he went through heroine's house doors. Lame and untrue, dude, you came to heroine's house 1 year ago, when you helped her to move in, so don't try to play an in

“This is going to be significant.”

Exactly. I never imagined I would see Michael fall like this and with whom! I was a bit surprised by that as I thought it would be someone else.

Brooke and Michael did make sense and it was fun reading about them getting together. It was funny when all the gang got together to help Michael figure out what to do.

There's some drama with Brooke's ex...I didn't really like the way things were handled...or not handled but oh well.

I Voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book

My first book by this author and I have to say I want to read the previous books in this series.

Brooke was a wild happy women with Italian roots and maybe in the phase of her rebellion stage with her parents, until she got pregnant and her boyfriend of more than two years just walked away. Now she is the mother of twins a boy and girl and raising them alone. She is happy and most of the time she can handle it all.

Stunning Friends to Lovers story!!

This book was a perfect example of how not to judge a book by its cover! We have gotten to know Michael throughout the Bachelors of the Ridge series and his playboy ways, or so we thought. He just catapulted into my favorite bachelor! So swoon worthy!! And Brooke is his perfect match. So much fun banter, angst, and passion. It is truly a beautiful story!

This is definitely a must read series. Every book is a standalone but they are all so good, so read them all!!

I LOVE Karla's books, but when I found out that Michael had a SINGLE MOM as the heroine I NEEDED this book.

Michael is without a doubt my FAVORITE of Karla's books.

The characters pretty much MADE this book for what it was. The strong sisterly bond between Brooke and Julia, and the friendship between all the guys were admirable. The twins were ADORABLE and stole the scene whenever they appeared. I couldn't get enough of those cuties!!! Brooke and Michael had SUCH amazing chemistry. Whether they

Michael is so freaking HOT! The flirting he does is unlike anything I've read. This book gave me butterflies, awwwwflies, and hornyflies! Highly recommend!!! Reads super great as a standalone too.

There’s a lot of useless swearing in this book, used mostly to emphasize emotions and whatnot. I’m not against it but I always feel like authors resorting to lots of swearing couldn’t convey the emotions their characters were supposed to feel properly or something. Which might obviously not be the case but that’s how it comes across at times.

Apart from that, it was a so-so read... it started strong, I liked the heroine’s quick repartee and sarcastic sense of humour but somewhere around the middl

I really liked this book. BUT....honestly I totally could have done without the whole "I slept with a "wild" chick" one week before he started going over to the h's house. And to add on to it he describes how she scratched up his back. Really could have done without that. If you're trying to portray Michael as not a "player" then that really wasn't the way to go or the fact that you say I've only been with 15 women in 8 years, but most recently I was with one who causes serious problems between ...more

Michael (Bachelors of the Ridge book 4) by Karla Sorensen
“Assumed playboy meets his match, 5 stars”
You know that saying about assuming things? That is totally relevant when it comes to Michael. Everyone assumes he’s a playboy because he flirts with women constantly. But everyone couldn’t be further from the truth, just because he flirts doesn’t mean he hooks up. Michael takes his job as the lighthearted friend seriously, he doesn’t care to correct people’s assu

There aren’t words to express how much I am in love with this book! Honestly I haven’t read the rest of the books in the series yet, although I’m one clicking them all now because this book guys! I adore how Karla’s funny, sassy, adorable personality is portrayed in every word she speaks, it gives her writing this addictively quirky tone that completely immerses you in the story…

Brooke, what can I say about Brooke? I have so much genuine admiration and respect for her.

There are few series that I look forward to the next book in the series as much as I do this one! With each novel in this amazing standalone series Karla gives us another unforgettable couple that you immediately want to become besties with and invite over for a BBQ. In Michael my love for this series grows a hundredfold.

We knew from the end of Cole that Michael and Brooke were destined to be Kindle melting, sweet, sexy perfection together it was only a matter of time. And boy, did Karla delive

Ahhhhhh I love this book so hard.

The author did an awesome job writing this story. It has everything. From the teasing to the angry, from the flirting to the action, from the brokenness to the heart repair.

“Snarky and feisty, with a dry humor that made me laugh easily, Brooke didn’t remind me of any other woman I’d ever met. And I liked that about her.”

Michael and Brooke are just the best characters ever. Independent, caring, funny and strong. They are just the perfect fit for each other a

Oh this book really hit me hard on a personal level because I can relate so much to what Brooke went through with her ex. Been there, done that, I did not want that t-shirt but I wear it proud now. Anyway, this book is a really great friends to lovers tale. Well sorta friends I guess. It was such a chance moment that Michael took and l adored their chemistry right from the start. How Brooke is sassy with him and everything.

Oh, how I love Ms. Sorensen’s books. I was first introduced to her when I read Cole, which then I had to read Dylan and Garrett’s books. Now, we have Michael (who is in the previous books) and Brooke (who is Julia’s sister from Cole).

Michael first meets Brooke in Cole (but Michael can be read as a standalone but I highly encourage to read the prior books because they are just so good!!). Brooke is a single mom of twins, Michael is a bachelor living with his brother. Their connection is one of fr

This is the first book that I have read in the Bachelors of the Ridge series, but it can completely be read as a standalone so no worries about that (although I will probably go back and read the entire series at some point)!

I LOVED Micheal. I was so pumped for this book after reading the banter between him in Brooke in Cole. But this book packed so much more than the laugh-out-loud banter, which was definitely there. We see sides of Brooke and Michael that are deeper and mean so much more with each other. The tension between them is epic and I sat on the edge of my seat watching these two battle it out, and then again as I watched them fall in love and learn the hidden depths of each other.

Honestly, I like Brooke she's strong and all but on chapter 19 onward she annoyed me, she can be somewhat hypocrite. Michael... i really like his character, i can't pinpoint what I don't like about him because overall I like him. For people who saying he's a manwhore did we read the same story?? He just let people thought of that of him, he's doesn't explained or deny his reputation because it's too much work for him, his issues, until he thought of it important and worth the explanation and he ...more

Brooke is a single mom with twins. Michael is Cole's brother and Julia's sister in law who on a whim to help his friends out by babysitting her kids. This leads to him suggesting an in home salon, doing the construction and becoming friends with Brooke who is exhausted and lonely.

In an uninspired twist, the twins' father comes back into the picture for little to no reason except to cause drama.

This is a great fantasy novel for those single moms who need a hot and handy man around the house.

Step aside previous bachelors, I might have just found my most favorite (until the next book!).

First, I have to say that I've been waiting for Michael's book for a while, mostly because I was absolutely curious about him. And having gotten to know Brooke in Cole's book, I was already very much impressed with her, so this book was highly anticipated - and as Sorensen has proven time and again -her writing just gets better.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This is book #4 in the series and what was so terrific about this story is it features all the previous couples in the story and we get to see more of their stories as well.

The only thing about this story I hated was that the last book in the series will only be out in the winter of 2018. I am not sure I can make it. It will be Tristan's story. Will it feature Anna? Well I hope not because in this story we see both their characters and I

Before Karla Sorensen even announced that Julia's sister, Brooke, would be the heroine in Michael's book, I just *knew* she would be when I was reading the previous book in this series, Cole. The chemistry between incessant flirt Michael and gazillion-months-pregnant Brooke in that book was off the charts.

So that brings us to Michael. It's set about a year after Cole and Julia's story. Brooke is a single mom raising her almost-1-year-old twins alone, and Michael is still an undeniable flirt… who

Michael and Brooke = Great

Michael: the player; the man whore; the no-commitment guy.
Brooke: the single mom; the independent woman

What do you get when you mix the two? One heck of a story!!!
Brooke is the mom of twins and doing everything on her own. She has her sister Julia to help her but she has basically been on her own with her kids since day one. When she needs to last minute babysitter, Brooke is expecting Julia to show up, not Michael, a family friend who has quite a reputation.

From book one we know the guys is a womanizer. However, we find out he’s not exactly like that, but you know what they say about fame, and he took it like that. People believe whatever they want to believe. Why should he correct that? He doesn’t care much about it, actually.

So... I didn't realize this book was the fourth book in a series of standalones. Take note, you DO NOT have to read the first three books to fall in love with Michael and Brooke. Maybe references to characters from earlier books may be a little more special, but nothing is taken away from this story.

Karla Sorenson is a new-to-me author and I was delighted by her effortless writing style. Her words flowed on the pages and I fell in love with her characters immediately.
