This is the second book I have read in this series and I have to say that it is PHENOMENAL! I could not get enough of this story. We have two strong main characters that are set in their ways and they don't take crap from anyone. They are Alpha Male and Female and that mix is awesome because I like to see who is going to give in first and I got a great surprise when I found out who gave in first in this story. Totally took me by surprise and I loved every minute of it.

I received an ARC from the author and I’m happy to give my honest review.

This is the first full length novel I’ve read from this author. I’ve read her novellas in another series and really liked them. I was intrigued by the premise of this book, curious since the billionaire romance has been so over done. But it’s actually really well done and different than I expected.

Adele is an independent real estate agent in New York City. She loves her city and meeting her client’s needs. A friend recomm

Bursting Out has me seriously bursting in emotions. Cheesy, I know, but so true! Ceri Grenelle has created a magically romantic world and I never want to leave it! I kinda just wanna stay lost in her words and pages forever.

Bursting Out gives us Adele and Michael. Omg, Adele. I think I love her more than Michael honestly. Adele is one of the most bravest, strongest, and sassiest chicks I've ever read. Everyone knows I love my sassy women. Adele is so blunt and honest with no filter, she loves h

Michael proves he's no robot. He's so genuine I can't help but fall. As a shadow from my past threatens him and my sister, it's my responsibility to protect them. I take care of

Real Estate and Personal Mysteries in Manhattan

This contemporary romance had ongoing humor and an air of mystery which surrounded both the hero and the heroine that kept me turning the pages. The heroine, Adele, is a sassy up-and-coming real estate agent. Mr. Zelig was referred to her by a mutual friend. Mr. Z is very particular about what he is looking for in a property. He is so demanding that Adele nearly drops him as a client. They're both intrigued by each other, but each is wary of pursuin

Bursting Out is Book 4 in Ceri Grenelle's Stupid Awesome Love Series and so far it is my favorite. To be honest I have not read book 3 yet but still.

Michael, Misha, Mr.Z, Petrov whatever his name is and Adele are so amazing together. Is it possible to develop a crush on both? 🤔 If it's not I must have just broken something because yes, I fell in love with them both. Adele is so funny that it was love at first line. Michael is one of those heroes that is not all Alpha. More like a cuddly teddy b

I like romances that feature a strong female heroine! Adele was strong, smart, and was able to stand up to Michael and his oddly controlling ways. They made an interesting couple as Michael puts her through test after test in a way that Adele didn’t appreciate. I liked the way she finally put a stop to it by standing up to him.
Turned out this quirky couple ended being a good match as they were able to open up to each other and be vulnerable with each other.
Their romance and relationship grows as

Adele is an estate agent, who's hiding something apart from the fact that she's changed her surname. She seems to have an aversion to wealthy men.
Michael also has secrets, he's hiding who he is and is keeping details of his past very close to his chest.
He contracts her to find him a home with impossible rules, she fights against him and won't treat him like everyone else. He finds that he likes her honesty and the chemistry between them. But life isn't easy and the past comes to haunt.

This is the first book I’ve read in the Stupid Awesome Love series; but it can be read as a stand-alone so it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the book.

Can I just say I loved this book? Adele is the most awesome, kick-ass, funny heroine I’ve read in quite a while. Her banter with Zelig in the early part of the book is brilliant.

Zelig/Michael/Misha reveals himself more and more throughout the book. Previously a closed off, lonely man who existed solely for his career and his one trusted friend, his

Adele is a hard working real estate agent who is just trying to take care of herself. Mr. Michael Zelig who was referred to her by a friend comes to her looking for a property. Only he is so uptight and demanding that she considers ending the job, but is also having a hard time fighting her feelings for him! Michael finds himself attracted to Adele, but he has trust issues that he can’t get past. Will they give into their attraction to each other?

Adele ran away from a life she didn't want. From years of abuse at the voice of her mother. She's changed her name and is ready to take on the world one property at a time. She had spunk and personality. She is taking on the very secretive Mr. Petrov, is he ready?

This series gets better and better as it goes on. I loved the banter back and forth and the characters personality you get so see bloom as the series goes on. Can't wait for the next one!

I loved Adele a lot. She is a fun character with lots of charm and energy. She wants to make her way in the world without having to depend on others. Through the story you slowly learn what brought her to being this way. Then you have Michael who is co closed off to others at first that he doesn’t want to form attachments to others even though under the stoic exterior he has lots of emotions for others. I loved watching these two come together. Cannot wait for the next story in this series.

Bursting Out was my first read by Ceri Grenelle and now I can't wait to dive into everything else she has to offer! This story was everything I wanted and more. Sexy, brooding billionaire. Check. Sassy, independent heroine. Check. Mutual dislike from the beginning. Check. And an out of this world, but totally realistic love story to go with it. You can't go wrong with this one. 5 stars is not enough! Buy it now!!

This is the 2nd book I've read written Ceri Grenelle; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I will definitely be reading more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

Bursting Out is the first book of this series and by this author that I have read, and I loved reading it. My first impression of Adele is of a free spirit to Michael's stick in the mud. I loved following story these two very opposite people who also have much in common. I found myself drawn into their story, and look forward to reading the other books in the series.

This is the fourth book in the series but is the first one I have read and now I cannot wait to go and check out the rest of the series. This was a really good well-written book I just loved Adele and Michael they were good likable characters and they had me chuckling at times and the chemistry between them makes for some good steamy scenes. I really enjoyed this and would recommend it.

Ceri is the author of quirky and sexy contemporary romance novels. She has a major weakness for sappy cuddle moments as much as hot and steamy sex scenes, and a penchant for writing snappy and sarcastic dialogue. She loves romance that isn't afraid to be awkward and uncouth, and thrives on flawed characters with big hearts.

Ceri is a New York native living in California with her two cats, Mercy an
