I love the way S.M. West writes. Two books down and I enjoy the way she blends suspense, romance and so much angst in her stories. The road to happily ever after isn’t easy for these characters but it is definitely entertaining.

For much of this book, I was lost. Not gonna lie. I think a lot of the backstory was established in Anna’s brother’s book, BLUE, and so many things went over my head. This may have contributed to my impatience with Anna. I get that she was supposed to be sheltered, but wa

Green , the third book in Love in Color series revolves around the hidden and forbidden attraction between Davis "Coop" Cooper (a retired FBI agent now working for a private firm that specializes in security/protection) and Gianna/Anna Mari , a 25 year old half-sister of Evan Hart, who also owns the mentioned private firm) and she's in need of protection from her mobster grandfather Franco, who has his own hidden agenda of using Anna to secure the alliances at his own gain.

Green is the 3d installment in the Love In Color series.It follows the story of Anna (Evan's sister) and Coop (whom we first met in Red).

I'm rather conflicted as how to rate it because although I love SM West writing style, I didn't like the story that much.

Anna has been sheltered by her mafia family since her tragic birth. Now "free" of her grand-father, her freedom tastes bittersweet since the least of her moves is monitored by her brother and his team, ...and her grand-father who is still lur

I am having a bit of a hard time getting over the fact that I read this in 1 day. This is a book that you wish never ended. Just combine everyone's stories together! I want more, no, I NEED more. Now!

This story combines danger, suspense and just pure hotness!

Such a great story! Anna and Coop are thrust together due to circumstance. Coop tries to fight his attraction, while Anna wants to be allowed to grow up. Her big brother Evan has other ideas.

Plenty of action, plot twists and great chemistry, there were with times when I wanted to kick Coop between the legs - but he always managed to win me over again...

Definitely recommend if you are looking for an action packed love story.

I received an ARC of this book.

Coop & Anna are put together not by choice.....but sparks definitely fly when they are around each other. I had a love/hate relationship with Coop, as he really was up and down with his behavior/attitude. At times I wanted to slap him silly, but other times he was such a sweet and caring guy. Yet, once Coop got over his reservations about Anna and the situation, he truly became a lovable guy.

I really felt for Anna throughout the book, as she was a young woman, but everyone continued to treat

The Love in Color series gets better and better with each book!! Green is a suspenseful, action packed read with an unexpected yet perfect couple! Anna and Coop could not be more different, but they fit together just right! Their love is taboo and a slow burn. Despite being secluded and told what to do her whole life Anna is ready to make her own choices and get a taste of freedom before she sucomes to her expected fate.

5 GREEN STARS!! I am loving the Love in Color series and this one was fantastic. This story is fast paced with lots of action and sexy times. Anna and Coop have a sexy story to tell you. S.M. West is an amazing storyteller that keeps you turning pages. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Green, S.M. West's newest addition to her Love in Color series features Anna and Coop, supporting characters familiar from her last novel Blue. S.M. West is a talented writer. Since her debut last year she continues to deliver interesting stories and likable characters. All of this is present in Green, however, I never connected with the characters Coop and Anna. I didn't feel the essential chemistry that is needed to bring a couple together. That said, it's a well-constructed novel, written in ...more

Green is the first book that I've read in the Love in Color series, and I hate that I came fashionable late to fabulous party, as I loved it! Anna is a young woman living an invisible life as a pawn in her grandfather's criminal world, so he can use her as a bargaining chip to rise in the mob, even though he rejected her when she was born, so he keeps a very close eye on her. Her brother, Evan, with his security company, is doing everything he can, to protect her & remove her from her grandf ...more

I have a hate/love relationship with the main characters in this book. One minute I like Anna and Coop but the next I just wanted to smack them upside the head. Anna wants to be treated like and adult but she kept making stupid decisions. Cooper is no better since he keeps running from Anna. Just man up.

This is my first read of this series and it grabbed me rather quickly. I wish I had read book one and two first, as I think it would have enhanced the experience knowing the backstory more intimately. Regardless, it can be read and understood on its own. I liked how two people who thought they were so different, realized that they were actually perfect for one another. They just saw themselves and each other in different light (and shadow).

Green. The color of hope.
The verdant prospect of birth.
The lush virility of innocence.
The budding promise of growth.
And the sage persistence of love and fidelity.

Coop and Anna are placed together while Anna's brother is out of town with his wife. Coop is supposed to be keeping an eye on her because of her relationship with the mob, mainly her grandfather.

This book would have been a 5 star read for me had Anna not thrown herself at Coop constantly. And Coop got on my ever loving nerves because h

Rounding up to 4 stars!

Green is a fast paced and intriguing read. I was pulled into Anna and Coop’s story from the very first page. Anna was definitely not the type of girl to sit back and let a man handle all of her problems. She wanted to stand up and handle things for herself. As much as she doesn’t want to have to depend on others, she will quickly learn that there are some people worth trusting and depending on. The one thing she never saw coming though was Cooper. When Cooper is assigned t

Green is chockfull of action, suspense and an at first glance unlikely couple!

Anna and Coop are worlds apart but like any good jigsaw pieces, they fit! Anna is sick of her Ivory Tower and ready to live her own life, any mistakes...well they will at least be HER mistakes. She can be sneaky when she wants but she does come out of her shell more during the book.

Coop has been on the losing end of love before and work is just what he needs to get his mind off his troubles. Shame that he and Anna are

Green by S.M. West is book 3 of her Love In Color series and can be read as a standalone. However, I would recommend reading the first two books to help you better understand the storylines and characters.

‘Green. The color of hope.’

S.M. West has created another 5 star read that had me needing to take short breaks to compose myself and wipe away the tears. Chapters 28 and 29 nearly broke me, and by the end, I was left feeling so emotional and definitely not ready to say goodbye to Anna and Coop w

Loved Anna and Coop!

I was really curious to see how this story was going to play out--very much didn't call them as a couple in the previous books, but they blended really well together in the novel--and I think SM did a great job of fixing the whole Franco issue. I was wondering how that would all play out in the end. Job well done there.

I also tend to think the girl on the cover represents Anna really well.

Now, for Purple.

Green. The Color of hope.


Green by S.M. West was a marvelous, compassionate love story. About two lonely people, finding solace in each-other's arms. It's off limits..... dangerous even.... but they can't stay away.

"I will die alone. Death by loneliness, or worse, is inevitable."


Anna Mari prays for freedom, to be able to walk down the streets without having to look over her shoulder. Someone to care for her, and not because of her status.

Anna Mari finds it hard to make and have friends. Davis “Coop” Cooper is something of a puzzle. I really wanted to see if I could figure him out but it took a long time. But isn’t that why it’s called a puzzle? I can see the suspense but on the fence about the romance.

The beginning was very hard to follow – at least where Anna is concerned. It wasn’t until I got to chapter six that the light bulb finally went on. If it weren’t for this review, I probably would have given up. But

I have not read the previous books in the series but I cannot wait to check them out. This was a good fast paced read it had a good storyline that held my interest while most of the time I just loved Coop and Anna I have to admit that they needed a good shake and smack at times. You cannot help but feel for Anna but she and Coop were great for each other this is a good read well worth a go
