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

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 to

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

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

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

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.

I've lived through tons of hurricane scares, and recently went through the uncertainty of Hurricane Irma

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!

This is the first in a new series by the

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

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.

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

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

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

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 ...more

"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.

"Gary, in his absolute element, let out a little meow at me, as if both questioning where I’d been and asking why I’d been so slack in making him the social media star that he so clearly was".

But they in no way made up for the boring romance

I love Meg Cabot and have been enjoying her books for years. I was extremely excited to read her newest book, No Judgments. It's sort of a combination between Chick Lit and romantic comedy.

The narrator is 25 year old Bree. The story is charming and enjoyable. The backdrop of this story is a hurricane headed to Little Bridge Island (where she now lives).

Little Bridge Island is 150 miles south of Miami. It has a population of 4700. Bree has recently moved there to get away from her life

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

I went into this book with no expectations and I think that it was the best thing I could have ever done. I’m more familiar with Meg Cabots YA work so I went into this one only knowing that it was about saving animals during a hurricane. Even though the reviews I’ve read aren’t great, I ended up really enjoying this!

This book is really character driven and is very heavy on the plot of the hurricane. I’ve seen reviews where people complain about that but I can’t fathom how

Nicely done! This books was cute, endearing and a fun light read. Nothing too overly dramatic or over the top. The whole bit about the bio mom was a tad confusing and maybe unnecessary, but still, it was a very delightful book!

CW: Sexual Assault

Ummm, I don’t know about this one frankly. No Judgments has Cabot’s signature humor and promises a good time and yet, I feel like it falls short of being a truly good book?? There are certain plot points that are sort of swooped over and things like sexual assault, which I feel, aren’t handled with care.

We were introduced to Little Bridge in Bridal Boot Camp and while Bridal Boot Camp wasn’t my fav, I was still very excited to read more about this town and meet new characters.

I feel like it's been a long time since I've read Meg Cabot, because really I've mostly read her adult contemporary romance as opposed to her YA books. This book was exactly what I loved about her books back in the day when I first fell in love with her writing. I loved the romance between Bree and Drew. It was a perfect rom-com/chick flick type of story. It was also fun to read this, well, not sure if fun is exactly the right word, but it seems as if it is the perfect time to read a love story ...more

Full disclosure, Meg Cabot is my favorite author, so maybe take this review will a grain of salt, but I really adored the first book in her newest series Little Bridge Island. I grew up reading her teen books, so it's almost like I've grown up with Meg and now that I'm older I am really growing to love her adult fiction. This books feels more on par with The Boys Series or Queen of Babble, so it definitely has that romcom
