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 ...more
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.
No Judgments starts with Sabrina (Bree) Beckham's life in New York getting upended and blow apart. Her father has died, her ...more

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 ...more

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 ...more
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 ...more

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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more

When the island is cut off from the mainland, Bree is horrified to learn that people left ...more
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 roman ...more
Bree has moved to Little Bridge after an incident with her ex boyfriend’s best friend sexually assaulting her. She’s left behind her life as the daughter of famous podcaster, Judge Justine.

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 (domineeri ...more
Meg Cabot was born on February 1, 1967, during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign. Fortunately she grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where few people were aware of the stigma of being a fire horse -- at least until Meg became a teenager, when she flun ...more
