I was completely exhausted when I first laid eyes on him. I had been traveling, and for the last twenty-four hours, sleep had evaded me. I knew I looked terrible, and I was relatively sure I didn't smell so great, either. It was not the most ideal moment to make a first impression. On a normal day, I wouldn't be so torn up about it, but today was different. This was the da ...more

Oh my, I love this book!

I just finished reading it and I L-O-V-E-D, loved it! Brooke St. James is one of the very select authors on my short "Buy" list. I buy her books, sight unseen, as soon as they're released. St. James is a master at creating sexual tension. I had excited little butterflies fluttering in my stomach in anticipation for 3/4 of the book.

The two main characters felt like my friends after reading only a couple of chapters. The heroine, Blue, is adorable. So is her rock-star dad,

Very nice read

Another truly great book by Ms. St. James. I have read each book at least twice. This was a nice addition to her family of books.

My gosh this author can't write fast enough for me. I loved this story, the hotels and the wonderful characters. I especially loved the chemistry between these two. This is a really sweet romance that is tasteful.

Love this author!!

Characters are very realistic with very probable situations. The book flows well and the language used is commendable and clean. It is nice to have something to read without profanity. And of course the romance makes life a bit better. Thank you Brooke.

I’ve been a big fan for ages. This newest addition has all the fun, lighthearted, and sweet chemistry I’ve come to expect from her books. This looks to be the start of another great family series! I really hope we get to have Josh the doorman for a hero in one soon.

Beginning of another good series

I love her books because she is quick to acknowledge GOd’s hand in all the things that happen. I also like that she writes in the same way that normal people talk. This was very nice love story.

I don’t think I’ve read a book this G rated since junior high……

The Suite Life is about Blue Stone. Her father is Alec Stone, famous rock star. Blue travels the world with her dad and doesn’t have much of a social life her own. Upon arriving to a hotel in Boston, she meets Taylor Patterson. Taylor is doing what I would call an audit of the hotel – checking to see where improvements could be made. But the staff kept calling him their boss. But he wasn’t employed there. Anyway….

They meet and hit it

This author wrote a novel with laughter, a family who loved one another
Happiness and they survived their dad who is a rock star just a great read.

A different kind of love story

While this book is not intense in the way the world views a love story it still has its own intensity. When love happens when you least expect it it's a beautiful thing.

Sweet but

Unrealistic. The characters seem too perfect to be real. There were a lot of typos, too. Usually I like Brooke's books, but this is not my favorite.

The Suite Life: The Family Stone Book 1 is by Brooke St. James. This book lives up to everything her other books does and it is fun to read. What is unique is it doesn’t read like her other books so you don’t compare her writing to this one until the end. She makes you love the characters immediately and wonder why they take so long to get together. She proves that love at first sight it possible.

A promising new series...

... despite a slightly sedate start. Brooke St James does a wonderful job creating characters and families that are easy to care about and you want to spend time with. So even though the book spends a lot of time telling about a relatively simple relationship development story, I definitely look forward to all the possibilities and seeing where the author takes things.

My (relatively minor) gripes:
I do get a little annoyed with the little time jump-then backtrack explan

I love Brook St. James. Her books always give me a nice break from life and I love how things work out, they're clean, and I really enjoy the characters. That being said, I felt like the characters in this book weren't as developed. It's like saying a character is a good conversationalist and very smart, but there isn't any dialog or actions to back up the statement. It didn't make me dislike the characters though.
Overall, the book was still very good, but I just didn't think this one was as dev

My fave

I love all of Brooke St James' books. Thanks to No for I have them on mine.
This feel good romance takes through some of the details of the hotel business. The emphasis on kindness and relationship is evident through out. We also see into the life of a rock star and his family.
Of course there is a happy ending. Just what I love!

Great Book

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and would highly recommend that you read her other series as well. The Hunt family series as well as the Bishop family are two of my favorites. Honestly anything she writes is so exciting and all encompassing, it makes me want to be a part of the families.

"When Dreams Are Fulfilled"

This is an inviting novel to enjoy as Blue Stone, daughter of a rock star, is exhausted. She'd been travelling for 24 hours, and then she meets Taylor Patterson, a true gentleman. This is a wonderful story as their paths cross and love blooms. I'm putting this author on my favorite list. She's a great. Highly recommend.

Wonderful romance story

This is what I call a true romance. No horrible drama, breakup, or nonsense....just a pure love story. The love between Blue and Taylor could be felt between the pages, my favorite kind of story. I can’t think of any woman who wouldn’t want someone like Taylor to love her. Excellent job

Rather shallow. Limited variety in plot and vocabulary

Rather shallow. Limited variety in plot and vocabulary. Interesting the building of hotel realistic??? Your first books were more interesting

This was a really good story. I enjoyed getting a glimpse of the Stone girls. This story held some surprises and I enjoyed reading about the dynamics of the famly. I especially enjoyed reading about Taylor's expertise in the hospitality area.
