 The Flipped Page (Susan K)
Romance, clean; series, but stand alone read
Light romantic read. Emerson and Riker meet by accident (literally) as he tosses his food aside to catch a football. Their relationship is complicated by secrets, and family issues on both of their sides. As they both try to navigate their budding relationship, their hearts and their attraction lead them to open up and find each other fully. Cute, fun novella read. Lots of characters/threads from other novels, but easy to follow along with this one. Em

When Emerson decides to follow her own dreams on occasion, she does so under an assumed name. When she does meet the man of her dreams that causes some confusion. Riker is the new quarterback for the Texas Titans. He's a good guy. One

Sweet, clean romance. I liked the story but more than one time I wanted to scream at some of the characters especially Emerson. She really needed to pack her bags. But staying made for an exciting climax so it was necessary for the plot. I am not really sure that I liked everything in the epilogue. I fear Emerson will fall into her parents clutches again. I don't see how she can ever trust them again. I thought Riker was a fun hero but I was surprised how easily things worked out for his family. ...more

An amazing relationship that starts out of hidden truths and the deceit of others. Emerson's manipulative parents are trying to deal a merger deal between two families forcing her to marry. Her parents didn't count on her also having a secret live as well and falling in love with someone else. As this new love blooms; tension mounts and finally everything comes out in the open and Emerson finds herself having to make the biggest decision in her life time.

Emerson mother was planning a barbecue that had to be perfect. To ensure her daughter married Finley and the merger would go thru. She races off to the do barrel race at the rodeo. Where she meets blue eye Titan, Riker.
Their relationship was not easier, would they follow their hearts or pressures of parents, and what people expected of them. Good cute stories of opening up and getting rid of past hurts

I enjoyed this story which dealt with two young people from two very different types of families. One was struggling with forgiveness and one was battling to live her own life authentically with resistance coming from her loved ones. With assistance from one another they manage to move forward together with these things as they fall in love.

4 1/2 stars!

Emerson and Riker are really good for each other as they each help the other find forgiveness for difficult things that happen in their lives. I found the descriptions in the book to be vivid and pictured everything beautifully in my head. It was very clean, no swearing or sex. It was a fun read!

Great read!!!!

Loved the characters and storyline. I liked the way that Emerson stood her ground in the end. I would recommend this series to anyone who likes romance and a bit of tension, along with some misunderstandings. I would recommend this series to anyone who likes a good romantic story.

A romance of two good people in need of some hard life lessons. There is such a picture of the paths we can take in life as Riker and Emerson/Starr meet and begin a journey. Choose people, love and peace or things, chaos and hatred. Thoroughly enjoyed being in the midst of some very good and very evil characters and hoping for a fairy tale ending.

He’s a QB for the Texas Titans and she’s the daughter of a wealthy man. She barrel races under another name and meets him. Sparks fly or rather nachos do and they get together. Each has problems with their families but together work it out.

This entire series is fantastic! It is nice to be able to read a series where the couples still believe in dating rather than taking things too far, too fast.

A good clean romance. Characters are very realist. Plot moves slowly in some spots. I skipped a few chapters. Title needs rethinking.
