Mason!! Ahhh! I eagerly awaited his book and knew it would be great, but Chase has outdone herself with this one! And the icing on the cake? Scarlett is decidedly NOT the girl I would have pictured for Mason but the perfect girl for Mason and just the right girl to shock his meddling, snobby mother and put her in her place, and it’s an epically beautiful thing!

It’s the traditional “wrong side of the tracks” love story. Scarlett Jones is a tomboy, and the only girl in a family of four men, who lo

I just finished this adorable story and my body is still tingling with all the warm and fuzzy feeling this book left. Small town romances are my favorite thing in the world, especially the close-knit community, the history the residents share and how secret affairs aren’t exactly a secret.

Scarlett Jones’ typical appearance is of a girl covered in dirt and grime, working in a garage fixing motorcycles, or deeply engrossed in the other projects, sometimes to the extent of forgetting the rest of th

3.5 stars

I jumped into this book without reading the previous ones but that's fine it works well as standalone. I've always liked small town romances and I liked the feel of this cover so I gave it a go. This maybe a minority review since many seemed to love it more. Scarlet has a chip on her shoulder about the privileged, she had preconceived notions about Mason Bishop exactly. That is until talking to him for real and finding they have good conversations. The connection seems instantaneous for

5 Star Review of In Case You Didn’t Know (Magnolia Sound #3) by Samantha Chase
I was intrigued by Mason Bishop from the first time he appeared in the series. I knew that the woman who would capture his heart would have to be unique and someone special; that is certainly Scarlett Jones. Although this can be read as a stand alone, I recommend that you also one click the other books in the series as they are just as enjoyable.

Mason has finally flown the coop and gotten his own place after living w

In Case You Didn’t Know by Samantha Chase takes us on another visit to the small coastal town of Magnolia Sound. This is the best book in the series so far and the main characters, Mason and Scarlett, are totally delightful. When we first meet them, it feels like they are totally mismatched. Mason comes from a wealthy family and he is well-dressed and self-confident. Scarlett comes from a poor background and she self-conscientious and a tomboy. They find themselves instantly attracted to each ot ...more

It’s Mason’s turn. He’s watched his cousins find their happily ever after and now it is his turn. It is his turn to look into his heart and find what he needs to make himself happy. He’s followed the path that his parents have set for him all his life and is FINALLY! standing up for himself and making his own choices.

Samantha Chase has taken a geeky, awkward character and made him into someone that fits in, knows his own worth, and is willing to take risks to make those who are important to him

Mason was raised in a wealthy lifestyle but along with that came expectations. His parents had a plan for him with little regard for his own dreams so when he inherits a bar, The Mystic Magnolia, from his grandfather it is a change to prove himself away from his family.

Scarlett may not have been raised in wealth, but she always knew she was loved. As the only girl she was more at home with engines than frilly dresses.

When fate brings them together Mason is all in and now he just needs to convinc

Fiction based in truth with the heart to back it up is the Samantha Chase way. Mason and Scarlett do a great impression of living, but has either one ever truly felt alive? Mason keeps his emotions close to the vest. Scarlett exposes her's for all to see. She may dress like a bad girl, but at heart she's yearning for something more. In Case You Didn't Know is a tale of prejudgments and true love. It's been said that image is everything. In reality it's the masquerade that can lead to the downfal ...more

I'm Case You Didn't Know is the third book in the Magnolia Sound series.

Mason and Scarlett meet by chance at a concert and quickly reconnect. He is captivated by the sassy girl he knew from high school but Scarlett is reluctant to get involved with the spoiled rich boy she thought she knew as a teenager.

I loved both Mason and Scarlett. They were such a perfect match. Both had a lot of preconceptions to work through and I loved how they grew into such a great couple. This is a fantastic series.

If you follow this series then you’ve met Mason Bishop already, superficially and in the background. Now we get to the real Mason. And he turns out to be a heck of a guy. All it took was for him to break the family bonds and move forward in his own path.

Mason and Scarlett aren’t strangers. They’ve known each other since lower school, but they come from very different worlds. They’re on opposite sides of the tracks, as they say. Mason doesn’t care. He’s going after his HEA, full force ahead!

I SHOULD have known!!!
I have been a fan Samantha Chase’s latest Magnolia Sound series from the very beginning. Each of the pairings in the series have been spot on, and I have loved them all. Now, we get to Mason. From the very first book I was not impressed with him as he was introduced. I had thought he had let his parents, especially his mother, walk all over him. I could not at this time, see him as the “hero” material in any book. Buuut, as I first stated at the beginning of this review: I

I abso-friggin-lutely LOVED Mason and Scarlett. I was skeptical of Mason when we first met him in Mallory and Sam's story, but got excited about him in Sam and Shelby's story. Sam was able to show us that there was a lot more to Mason than the perfect image Mason's parents had presented to the world. Now that we have Mason's story, I was not disappointed! He is such a great guy - and yeah, he looks perfect on paper because his parents made sure of it, but there's a lot more ambition and heart to ...more

Five stars just isn't enough. There are a few characters that I absolutely LOVED in my years of reading. Those that have stayed with me beyond the final words of "The End." Two of those are Mason and Scarlet. Mason is so misunderstood by almost most of his family. His cousin is one that gets him and encourages him. His mother is the driving force behind him wanting to run in the opposite direction. She has a plan for him and won't consider he has a mind of his own. While that's parenting for a t ...more
In Case you didn't know was one of the best books of the Magnolia Sound series. Mason and Scarlett have to be my favorite couple from this whole series. Samantha Chase did a really great job developing this love story that had you falling in love with Mason Bishop.

This book started off slow but once Mason and Scarlett started talking the story captivates you and it's really hard to put down. One of the things I loved in this book is how Mason tries to make Scarlett laugh with cheesy pick-up line

Scarlett Jones is a beautiful, smart and talented girl. She grew up in Magnolia Sound without much money, causing her to resent those that did, like Mason Bishop.
Mason is a smart and handsome man who’s family is one of the founding families of Magnolia Sound.
When they run into each other one night, the story just takes off from there. First off
I loved this story and being back in Magnolia Sound!! The storyline was attention grabbing, it had me shocked at a couple of parts, made me cry, made me

This is book three in Ms. Chase’s Magnolia Sound series and with each book I fall more and more in love with the town and its residents. This book centers around Mason and Scarlett. Mason’s grandfather has left him Mystic Magnolia, the local bar/pub with no real reasoning that he can figure out. And oh my, Scarlett is a woman that’s discovering what it means to break-out of her shell seeing as she’s always been a tomboy, and giv

Samantha Chase gives us a wonderful romance that will touch your heart and leave you with a smile on your face. Mason and Scarlett’s story shows us how wrong our preconceived notions of others can be so completely opposite of what is true. How we can think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence and feel others have it so good and perfect while shutting ourselves off from truly getting to know a person based on who they are inside and not what the portray to the world.

Mason and Scarlett’s story In Case You Didn’t Know, book three in Samantha Chase’s Magnolia Sound series is an emotional and heartwarming tale of forgiveness, acceptance, family and understanding. I came into this story not liking Mason, at least the Mason we were introduced to in previously stories in this series. Not only did I get to know the real Mason, the reasons he was portrayed as he was, but I came to fall in love with him. No, he’s not an alpha-type, but he is a warm, understanding, pa ...more

Mason Bishop is finally making moves to live his own life. He's gotten his own place and is no longer along himself to being a puppet to his controlling parents, especially his mother. Whew, is she a piece of work.

He runs into an old school acquaintance at a concert, Scarlett Jones. It takes quite a bit a talking for him to get her to spend some time chatting with him. Scarlett doesn't think she's good enough for Mason, because he comes from 'money'.

I could not put this book done. Ms. Chase has out done herself with the story of Mason and Scarlett. Mason we have read about, whom I did not really care for but in this book you get the true Mason, and he won my heart over.

In Case You Didn't Know is the third book in the Magnolia Sound series. This is Mason and Scarlett's story. I think I have found my favorite Magnolia Sound book boyfriend. I loved Mason. Scarlett had to grow on me. She kind of came across as whiny and judgmental at first. I was happy when her best friend finally called her out on her own BS. I also loved watching Mason finally tell off his mother. As for them as a couple, their attraction was fast and steamy, but they really did fit together we ...more

Scarlett Jones is not what he was looking for but she was just what he needed and to think this spitfire with a chip on her shoulder would be it for him who would have figured. Just when you think you have this one figured out, BAM, there is more. Definitely a keeper in this series and the rest of the family shows up and we are introduced to Scarlett's ...more

I adored this story so much!!!!
Mason and Scarlett grew up in the same small town, but they def were in different social circles..and now, after many years, a chance encounter might change her perception and finally allow Mason to find his HEA.
These two were adorable together..Mason is a dork and Scarlett is full of fire.
I love Scarlett's family, especially grandpa. The town is gossipy yet very helpful.
I am very happy!
