City girl Bree has been enjoying life in Little Bridge, Florida, after fleeing from NYC, her mother, her boyfriend, and The Incident. She's revamped her life and image, and isn't going to run anymore. Not even with the storm of the century bearing down on her new home in the Florida Keys. Not even from hot but bossy carpenter, Drew, who thinks she should get out of dodge. Because Bree is taking a stand. For herself.

Buckle up bitches, because I have feelings.

First of all, please let me establish

This was a fun, flirty, feel good story just what I was expecting from a Meg Cabot book. Small town Romance, delightful setting, witty banter, and loads of adorable animals, yes please! Bree has fled to Little Bridge Island (a small island off the coast of Florida) after a bad break up. Little Bridge is just as quaint and quirky as you would want from a small town. When a category five hurricane is approaching Bree decides to hunker down with the long time residence and ride it out. She and her ...more

Unfortunately, I will have to pass judgement onto Meg Cabot's newest work.

No Judgements is the story of Bree and Drew, two twenty-somethings that have elected to remain, among other residents, on a tiny island in the Florida Keys as a Category 5 hurricane bears down on them.
Bree moved to the island after the emotional shocks of death of her father and a sexual assault from her then boyfriend's best friend. She is incredibly unprepared to deal with any sort of inclement weather, and is lucky to h
I will ALWAYS read Meg Cabot. She is Queen. Cannot wait for this!


Well, it wasn’t perfect. But I flew through it and enjoyed it. Sometimes, that makes the perfect book.
Going with 3.5 stars on this one!

No Judgements is an easy, breezy contemporary romance book.
This was a cute book. It isn't meant to be anymore then what it is, an entertaining and easy book to escape to.

I think the setting of being in the Florida Keys is the best part of the book. I needed a bit of island time while dealing with the Covid-19 virus and forced to stay inside.

Story 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Sometimes you have moments in your life where you feel overwhelmed, but in a bad way.
And sometimes this feeling only gets worse with more things that pile up on you.
You feel like you want to flee, somewhere far away, maybe to a beach.
But most of the times you don’t run away.
But Sabrina (now Bree) ran away.
She fled to a little island with a beautiful beach and a small town full of nice people.
But then a hurricane is said to come, people evacuate, her mother calls her all the time

I can't believe this book ended up being such a disappointment. I genuinely expected it to be a guaranteed hit based on the synopsis. Here's a little bit of quick background information about me: I'm a Florida resident who has been here the majority of my life. I've lived through tons of hurricane scares, and recently went through the uncertainty of Hurricane Irma whi

LOL YIKES. Lately I've read SO many bad books and I thought it was just me personally but *checks average rating* 3.49? I'm just shitty at picking.

No Judgments takes place on an island in the Florida keys right before a category 5 hurricane is set to hit. Bree isn't too worried- she's already fled to the island a couple months ago from her emotionally abuse ex- so she figures the storm will be no big deal. When the island is cut off from the mainland, Bree is horrified to learn that people left

This is super cute book. I remember Miss Cabot book, The Princess Diary. It was a very entertaining YA novel.

No Judgments is a NA book. And it is delicious. I like the chemistry of that small town romance. Drew and Brie are animal lovers who defided ti rescue every pets when their town get hits by hurricane. I love how Brie character grows frim timid woman into a strong kick ass heroine.

Drew is brooding type of hero. I like how slowly he opens up to Brie and falls for her. There is no steamy n

I completely fell in love with Little Bridge, so much so that I spent a good chunk of this book imagining what it would be like to live there.
The only issue I really had with this book was that the characters all kind of felt hollow?
With all the effort put into creating and developing the island, community and story surrounding it all, the characters seemed like an afterthought.
Gary was by far the best developed character...Gary is the MC's cat.
Much thanks to Meg Cabot for my signed copy (and a

I was today years old when I learned that people had hurricane parties. Someone invite me to one!!
It’s been a while since I read such good banter between enemies who later become lovers. Unfortunately, although this was really cute, it was still quite an average read.

Okay, but can we talk about how Sabrina handled Kyle in chapter 32?! Yes Queen! I loved it. Thy scene alone is why I gave it the extra 0.8⭐️.

Is there anything better than a sweet contemporary romance set in a small town and with tons of cute animals? I was so excited to read No Judgments by Meg Cabot. I’ve read some of her earlier works but nothing recent. In No Judgments, we meet Sabrina—who goes by Bree—a woman in need of a fresh start in life and in love. I thought this book was a sweet love story with a dash of some real issues that added some realistic edge to an otherwise light story!

Life is a series of storms and start overs, so what's one massive hurricane?

When the storm of the century severs Little Bridges power and connection to the mainland, Bree Beckham isn't worried... at first. She's already escaped an emotionally abusive ex, so a hurricane seems like no big deal.

She does become alarmed when she realizes how many people are now cut off from their pets. Now she must save all the islander's pets. But she's not so happy that the only one to help her is her boss's moody

A new Meg Cabot is always going to catch my eye because I know I'll have a decent story well-told. And this didn't disappoint, though for a while there, I was worried. Bree spends the first, oh, two-thirds of the story lying to everybody (starting with herself) and vacillating between foolhardy obstinacy and we're-all-going-to-die! freak-outs.

I kept wanting to smack her and tell her to pick a lane. Either you're willingly riding out a dangerous hurricane or you're scared and seek safety. For exa

Cute, breezy, and atmospheric.

No Judgments is not my favourite Meg Cabot novel but it is an easy, quirky, quick read if you're looking for something light.

I loved the premise of this one and sadly was quite disappointed.

Sabrina and Drew were okay characters. They’re both good people, but I feel like that’s the best I can say about them. Neither of them were captivating and since I didn’t care about either of them, I wasn’t invested in their story.

Plot wise, it was boring. I expected the story to ramp up as the storm did, yet there wasn’t any real sense of urgency. The writing was a bit choppy, the chemistry was all tell, no show, and the sex sce

My Judgment on Meg Cabot's No Judgments

Didn't like it. There were parts that were interesting as I have lived through several hurricanes. Some were pretty awful. I remember having to board up windows, filling jugs with water, readying the battery operated radios, charging all devices, and the such. So, the book was nostalgic in a way, but for me that was it.

Cabot wrote a PSA (Public Service Announcement) novel about pets during a hurricane. It read as if Cabot was appealing to her audience to h

I really like Meg Cabot- she is a very talented author and has excelled at a variety of genres. Although Jess Mastriani andHeather Wells series remain my favourite, I am always happy to read and review her new books.

No Judgments is the first title in a new series set on Little Bridge Island, just off the coast of Florida. The protagonist, twenty five year old Bree Beckham is a waitress in the Mermaid Cafe and a daughter of a radio super star Judge Justine. Only Bree doesn't want anybody to know

2.5 stars

For all intents and purposes, this book should have worked for me. A romance, Meg Cabot and lots of dogs? But, for some reason, this one really felt like it was missing something crucial for a romance novel - and for me that was chemistry. This book felt more like Cabot wanted to write about people who rescued animals during a horrible hurricane and kept them safe but was told that her brand is romance so add that element - I just never felt it between Bree & Drew, despite my best effor

Life inside a hurricane!

A really darling romcom about a young woman looking for a new life in Florida, a super hot carpenter, and a bunch of animals who need rescuing. Had that Meg Cabot charm, and I was totally looking for a mention of Genovia and its Crown Princess, but definitely for adults. (Woo! Is it hot in here?!)

"No Judgements"? Ironic, cuz I'm judging.

Full disclosure : if I hadn't read a Meg Cabot book before then I'd probably have rated this higher but since I have….. 

Well, there's no sugar coating it - 

I was disappointed. Majorly. 

Sure the book had it's funny bits.

But they in no way made up for the boring roman

A cute story, but if you've ever been familiar with any of Meg Cabot's work (including Princess Diaries), it seems like an AU fanfic. Characters recycled into an alternate universe. I did enjoy the setting of an island preparing for and then dealing with the aftermath of the hurricane, but I would have preferred a little more depth. Everything, including the romance, seemed to be completely lacking nuance, and one dimensional. Which is odd, considering the things Bree was dealing with on a perso ...more
