It’s not a concept Charlotte Rose has ever considered.
She’s busted her tail her entire life.
Worked at her doomed marriage

Work is life.
Love?…yeah, that’s something she’s learned to live without.

descriptionSo this one was just OK for me. There wasn't anything majorly offputting about it. I mean I obviously must have liked something about it since I kept reading. (lol) That said, there were a bunch of small issues that kept me from rating it higher. I'll get into those in a bit, but first, the writing was quite decent. It was easy to read and well paced. The overall plot was enjoyable, mainly thanks to Charlotte who I thought was a strong heroine (apart from one small detail). Rhys on his own was a

When two authors that you love decide to write a book together you do a happy dance and get beyond excited. I just knew that the bond that Kerry and Heather share would create a beautiful story.

Art imitates life a little in that our heroine Charlotte Rose, an American, has a British bestie, Louise. Just like Kerry and Heather.

I’m writing this review on International Woman’s Day because Charlotte IS the epitome of a strong woman. She throws off the claws of her every day life to live the life she

I was really looking forward to Saorsa as the cover is absolutely delicious and I loved the idea of a woman getting a second chance at love in her life. Charlotte was a fantastic heroine. She was strong, assertive and very well put together. I loved how she took control of her life, future plans and dove headfirst into a new beginning. But in all honesty, the romance in this story fell flat for me. In my opinion it had SO MUCH potential but felt a bit "too little, too late" towards the end.

This book was not a bad one but it wasn't very good either.

I loved main characters.
Charlotte is nice,assertive and good women.I loved her composure and how she handled the divorcee thing with her husband.Her journey to make her life better was great to read about.Charlotte is really good heroine.
Rhys was a nice guy too,but a little bit weird.I won't say much about him because then I will have to spoil this book,and I'm not doing that.

Omg, I FLOVED this book!! Deliciously sweet, so HOT, so real and so, so addictive. I have a huge book hangover. SAORSA is my new addiction. If it was a movie I’d have it on repeat, I need more!

I've been a huge fan of Kerry Heavens right from the beginning (Just Human is still one of my favourite series) and only discovered Heather Shere last year (adored Honey Bee), so I knew I was in for a treat and wow, what a t

The blurb for this one had me intrigued and that cover was the final thing that nailed it for me. I had to read this.

The romance was a slow burn but I personally felt this book needed that. Charlotte was a strong sassy woman who had been through a lot and was now taking a chance again and moving her life in a new direction (I loved how she sorted out the ex-husband – the snidey snake!). Then when she meets sexy scot Rhys and then kept bumping into him at various places across London, you could

Charlotte is a woman after my own heart. After years of trying to save her marriage and build up her business with her scumbag of a now Ex, she decides to take her life by the horns and moves to London to be with her BFF, Louise!

The very first chapter of this book had me doing a fist-pump because Charlotte is a woman that knows how to make a statement with the ending of one era and the beginning of another! Her move to London brings her so much happiness with her bestie

Saorsa tells the story of Charlotte, a strong, independent woman and the greatest kind of heroine. After an unhappy few years were her ex husband attempted to run their business into the ground so she wouldn't be left with much, Charlotte packs up her life and moves to London for a fresh start. She moves in with her best friend and attempts to rebuild her life. Enter Rhys. The handsome guy she meets at the airport and who she continues to bump into in the weeks followin

I have been blessed to read many great books in my life and this one just etched itself onto that list.

There was something so refreshing with this journey Charlotte took throughout this book. She was able to finally find herself and go after what she really wanted without doubting every choice. The chance meeting with the hot Scotsman in the airport and then later that night... you just wanted to know who he was and what it meant right off the bat. Then as the story grew and Charlotte kept havi

A bloody fabulous book!

I know im on route to a book hangover when I find myself panicking two thirds through that the end is coming. Charlotte and Rhys's story is charmingly cheeky and full of passion.

Thank you Kerry Heavens & Heather Shere for writing a book with such a strong female lead, SAORSA was every thing I hoped it would be and more.

Final thoughts:

Everyone needs a friend like Louise.

When do we get Connor and Michaels stories?

I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I really enjoyed the blurb for this so that is why I took a chance on it. I'm typically wary of books written by two authors because everyone's writing style is different and it could end up disastrous. Another plus for me was the hero is Scottish!

This book was okay for me. I wanted to love it beyond belief but it just didn't do it for me.

Saorsa is such a swoon worthy read. I am seriously in love with Rhys and Charlotte. There is just something incredible about the way Charlotte takes charge of her life and ventures out into a new beginning. You will love Charlotte's ways and she will make you giggle from time to time. Now Rhys what can I say about him besides yummy. Oh and he's mine!!! He is a bit of a mystery for most of this one. But once you start to unravel him you can't help but to fall for him. I love how Charlotte and Rhy ...more

I really liked the heroine in this story. Charlotte was trying to make her life her own again. She has a great best friend and made new friends quickly when she moves to London. She is smart and savvy or appears to be when it comes to business sense.

So here is where it fell apart for me. She moves around the world and interviews for a new job but yet she never vets the owners or information about the company?? She just accepts the job, because they have researched her so well?? And of

This is literally the best book that I have read in a very long time! I have been a fan of Kerry Heavens for a while, but this is my first time reading anything from Heather Shere. Let me tell you that a collaboration between these two is AMAZING!

I have been looking forward to reading this book so much! Let’s start with the cover. The beauty that is this cover is amazing. The coloring and the image are just a indulgence for the eye. Kerry Heavens is a new to me author and I have enjoyed a couple of Heather Shere’s books. Their partnership in this book works really well.

When first introduced to Charlotte, you meet a strong woman standing up for what she wants and getting it. Embarking on a new life, she moves to London, accepts a new job

I'm not usually one for a romance book but there was something about the blurb that made me want this book . Charlotte's ex husband drives her from the company "they" built & into a new life in the UK , landing on British soil she bumps into a man in the airport & is intensely attracted to him & even after she's moved in with her besty he keeps showing up in places she is , fate maybe giving them a helping hand .

I liked this book quite a lot.
I love the cover, very rare you see these kinds of beautiful covers.
As for the story is a very slow burn between two characters that are coming from different words,as she is an American and he is a Scottish man.

I liked her as she took her life in hands and make something to change it, to feel more complete and to find happiness and in order to do that she decided to move from America to Scotland. She has a great relationship with her friends and is a strong heroine

Saorsa was a heartfelt story of self discovery and love. While a slow burn, it never felt slow, I quite simply just adored every syllable.

The plot twist I had called very early on BUT it was still a book I happily got lost in (when I was hungover after a night of actually acting my age 🙈) and I had all the heart eyes over the characters and development!

The depth to the meaning of Saorsa is truly stunning, it captured my soul and warmed my heart (with explosive scenes to heat up any e-reader). Th

I devoured this book in one sitting! It was captivating. The first two chapters I was cheering on Charlotte as she dealt with her ex husband. She was brilliant and he deserved exactly what happened! Charlotte was a fantastic character overall. Professional, intelligent, accomplished, and successful. She packs up and follows her dream of moving to London to be near her best friend Louise and a new job.
In the airport upon arrival, she meets Rhys, and then keeps running into him around town. They e
Rhys, a tattooed Scottish man living in London seems to be in the right place at the right time. He keeps running into Charlotte Rose, new to London and a CFO at a major financial corporation. Charlotte dodges his advances initially but finally relents and agrees to go out with him. What ensues is basically a whirlwind romance complete with crazy ex-lover, alpha male control tendencies, and a big ole secret that I feel like Charlotte should have seen coming.

Recently, I’ve started but not finished SO many books. That didn’t happen last night...the only reason I didn’t finish it in one hit was because I was dog tired (bloody housework day!) I freaking loved it 💕 I didn’t want to skim read it but constantly looked at what % I was on just to be sure I could finish before real life kicked back in. It was as beautiful as it was passionate. I loved the journey, the cast and the life lesson that made up the story. Yep, that’ll be a big fat 5 stars from me! ...more

I really enjoyed this book, it was a page turner for me. I loved the characters and the story line and I loved that it was easy to read. It dropped a star for me because I felt it could have been more, however it is still a book I would recommend for you to read.

I really do hope that we have more from the supporting characters in this book. Louise and Michael's stories spring to mind. I also want the details of what happens after that fabulous epilogue too.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Saorsa by Kerry Heavens & Heather Shere is the story of Charlotte and Rhys.
Charlotte has decided to change her life and goes from US to London to leave with her best friend. But once there she doesn't change her habits of working to much with no real social life. Rhys and Charlotte meet but is a slow burn until they flame up. This might mainly be due to Charlotte but Rhys does keep something close chested about himself. Overall I enjoyed this book, by first by these authors. I will look for more
